This brief editorial from the Wall Street Journal is touching and pointed.
"This is the story of how my husband's circumcision saved my life.
It's a personal story, but let it also serve as a public health rebuttal to the proposed ban on male circumcision that will be on the San Francisco ballot this November.
San Francisco's ballot initiative would prohibit circumcision on all males under the age of 18. It would allow no religious exemptions, and it apparently gives no regard to the numerous studies demonstrating that male circumcision can substantially reduce—by more than 50%—the transmission of the HIV virus during sex."
Sooooooooooooooo, San Francisco, it's okay to terminate a pregnancy for any reason, but no family can choose circumcision for their boys, even though the health benefits to the sexual partners are documented?
