A Strange Case of Double Standards
Another child has died from male circumcision in England - apparently the
third such death in 25 months - and boys (from babies to teenagers) are
being regularly treated in hospitals for serious injuries or infections
resulting from ritual genital cutting. NORM-UK, the charity concerned with
the foreskin, calls on the government to implement fully the UN Convention
on the Rights of the Child and give both boys and girls protection against
ritual wounding - in all its forms.
