Iceland proposes ban on circumcision
« on: February 20, 2018, 07:20:12 pm »
There will likely be a lot of strong feelings about this topic. I’m going to wait for a few replies before putting my thoughts forward on it.

Is circumcision ok?
Should it be banned?
Should this decision be left to the people instead of the government?

These threads usually don't last long without being locked but I'll say that I'm not a fan and that I feel an adult should be able to make the choice for themselves.

I've said it before, I think anything that permanently alters someone's body should be their own decision at the appropriate age.

I think it's great if they get this through. Gential mulitation is horrible, doesn't matter if it's on boys or girls, it's as bad.
NO ONE has the right to permanently change the body of anyone else, especially not a child.

If a guy wants to be circumcised when 18, fine. But it should be totally forbidden to do anything like that to a child!
The human body is a beutiful gift and a treasure more valuable than any gold in the world.

I think that it should be something to be decided by the individual, for themselves, as an adult.

I agree. I personally think that circumcision is unnecessary for anything other than medical reasons. Particularly when the baby/child is too young to consent or understand and be involved in the decision making process.

Iceland does it correctly, there is no need for circumcision except for medical reasons.

female circumcision is a bit different but is done in some cultures. switzerland has forbidden female circumcision and you can get jailed up to 10 years by doing, helping or not preventing it. It doesn't matter where you let do it, when you are living in switzerland you get punished, they are very strict.
