Germany: Religious Circumcisions Are Crimes

June 26th, 2012

Via: The Local:

Non-medical circumcision is a ‚Äúserious and irreversible interference in the integrity of the human body,‚ÄĚ the Cologne district court ruled.

This criminalises religious circumcisions performed by Jews and Muslims, the Financial Times Deutschland newspaper said on Tuesday. It says circumcision should be considered a crime of bodily harm.

Thousands of very young boys are circumcised in Germany each year, mainly for religious reasons.

In the United States most boys are circumcised shortly after birth ‚Äď regardless of their religion, though the practice has declined in recent years and anti-circumcision protest groups have sprung up.

German doctors performing circumcisions that are not medically necessary have until now operated in a grey legal area. Until now they could claim that they were unaware that performing a circumcision is a crime.

So Germany decides to attack Jews AGAIN? Because that worked out so well for them last time...

Awesome! It is becoming increasingly rare for even orthodox Jews in Europe to cut because they are educated on the subject. It's sad that there needs to be a law telling parents it's wrong to mutilate their children but it is apparently necessary and I'd rather have the law than the dead and deformed children.
