German Parliament Endorses Circumcision

    Most of the “health benefits” of circumcision are myths. Here’s a circumcision myth-busting website:

  • Brendan Doran

    The Courts are essentially Leftist, and the Hard Left is insane, vulgar, and hysterical.

    Andrew Sullivan would have a distinguished second career on the bench.

  • Corlyss

    Resolutions are empty feel-good fluff. They ain’t laws. IOW the German high court hasn’t been overruled. Which means, decision in hand, someone can still sue and prevail.

  • Endorses the right to circumcision, not circumcision itself. Let’s get those headlines right. The commercial press frequently deliberately using misleading headlines to get readers; I presume ViaMedia would not stoop so low.

  • Uses, not using. I wish you had an edit button.

    I checked the site that Jacko linked to. It was the usual collection of intactivist biases disguised as self-evident and irrefutable fact. The fact that they refer to circumcission as Male Genital Mutilation tells you everything you need to know. I do give them credit, though, for saying “The contents of this site are not intended to replace the professional medical advice of a licensed practitioner.” It seems to me that it is the risks and harm of circumcission, not the health benefits, that have been overstated.

    As usual it takes about one nano-second for the pro-foreskin fluffers to hit any thread with the word “circumcision” in it.

    So democratically elected representatives (or plebiscites) pass legislation that turns out to have no force, while radicals in robes make laws against religion.

    The situation in Germany has only superficially improved. The situation in the US hasn’t even improved superficially.
