SF judge rules circumcision off state ballot

Thursday, July 28, 2011
Efforts to ban circumcision in parts of California appear to be going nowhere.


First, plans for a ban in Santa Monica were abandoned last month.

Thursday, a San Francisco judge has ruled a ballot measure there for a circumcision ban must be taken off the ballot. The judge ruled the measure violates California law that makes regulating medical procedures a function of the state, not cities.

The citizens' initiative, which qualified for the ballot in May, would have made the practice a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 or up to one year in jail. The measure did not offer exemptions for religious rituals such as the Jewish bris or Muslim khitan.
