A ban on circumcision could end up on San Francisco's November ballot.
A voter in the city says he will submit more than 12,000 valid signatures to the elections office today. That's more than the 7,200 needed to get the measure on the ballot.
The proposed new law would make it a misdemeanor to circumcise a person before they are 18-years-old.

Why would anyone think they have the right to put this on the ballot? Some circumcise because of religious reasons (Jews/some Christians); other's do it because it's apart of their culture. And yet others do it because it is what they feel is best for their child health wise. What is the USA coming too? This is just crazy.
First its the happy meal toys in SF now it's this. Before you know it they will be telling you what clothing your child should wear, what time they should go to bed, and any other PARENTAL decision there is to be made will be made by the government.
Really why aren't are parental rights being protected?
wow that is insane.... I totally agree the government is overstepping their boundaries.

Well, I suppose if fewer men are circumcised more "studies" requiriing taxpayer dollars will be needed to teach said men how to clean them properly.
LOL...you mean like THIS ONE?!
"Feds Spent $800,000 of Economic Stimulus on African Genital-Washing Program"
Yay, Obama!! NOT!
P.S. Will it now be illegal for Jewish people to have the ceremonial Briss?! Maybe not...since it's a ceremony performed by both Jews AND Muslims.
