Bris May Be Outlawed in San Franscisco



This is usually they way it starts.  First they attempt to put it on the ballot and if it gets enough votes, they try again until they get it passed into law. Rabbonim, instead of banning blogs and concerts should concentrate on stopping this potential disaster. If this law goes into effect, more cities and states will follow.
Self-described "civil rights advocates" say that a ballot proposition to ban circumcision is on track for gathering signatures, meaning that San Franciscans may vote on the measure this November.
The proposed law is being spearheaded by local resident Lloyd Schofield,according to the San Francisco Examiner.
It's part of a national push to end the procedure, which some say is steeped in tradition but poses risks and has little medical benefit. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Medical Association do not recommend routine circumcision.
Getting on the ballot is the easy part -- only about 7,000 signatures are required. Once it's there, advocates will have to convince voters that snipping off body parts is a bad idea.
