In San Francisco

There are those who want to ban the severing of male newborn babies' foreskin and who heartily endorse the permissibility of severing the same babies' heads 5 minutes before.

What a quote: "'Parents are really guardians, and guardians have to do what's in the best interest of the child. It's his body. It's his choice,' said Lloyd Schofield."

Not unless he just happens to be in utero. Then has no choice about anything. Amazing how magical passing through a birth canal really is in their minds.

Straw-man.

What is the percentage of late term abortions? (I'll assume that's what you're referring by 'sever the head' though you didn't specify - 5 minutes before birth would seem to point to a late term abortion.)

Answer: <1%

Yes, I know. But I don't see how that's relevant to my post.

David said...

I'm sure you don't

David, the point is that the same people who think it un-thinkable to circumcise a baby boy also sometimes find it acceptable to abort the same baby boy. Your statistic is irrelevant.

I, for one, am glad to see that, in some corners of society, circumcision is beginning to be recognized for what it unquestionably is: an act of medically unnecessary, disfiguring, painful genital mutilation, by which many people are appalled.

This calls for an overdue utterance by all good people:
