Circumcision – genital mutilation?

In San Francisco there is a new proposal to ban circumcision.  Calling the procedure “genital mutilation”, the author of the new proposal wants to make it a misdemeanor to circumcise, excise, cut or mutilate the genitals of anyone under 18.  As you would imagine, this is causing a great deal of debate whether the procedure is medically necessary.  The Center for Disease Control is still studying the issue and is expected to make recommendations to the public.
