MPs from five different political parties in Iceland have proposed a ban on the circumcision of boys.
The bill, which has been submitted to the country’s parliament, suggests
a six-year prison term for anyone found guilty of “removing sexual
organs in whole or in part”.
Addressing religious traditions, it insists the “rights of the child” always exceed the “right of the parents to give their children guidance when it comes to religion”
Tätä!The move follows advice from doctors in Denmark, who have said boys under the age of 18 should not be circumcised.
The Danish Medical Association said it had considered suggesting a legal ban on the procedure for children
