      - Children are among the most vulnerable citizens in society, as they depend on the care and protection of adults.
      - Therefore, society has a special obligation to protect the fundamental rights of children until they reach an age and maturity where they can take on this responsibility themselves.
      - Legislation must therefore equate all children under the age of 18 regardless of gender, cultural background or parents' religious beliefs, so that they have the same legal requirements for bodily integrity and autonomy.
      Punishable by imprisonment for up to six years
      This is what the comments on the B5 just made - a proposal for a parliamentary resolution on the introduction of 18-year-old age for the circumcision of healthy children (citizens proposal) , which deals with introducing a gender-neutral minimum age of 18 for circumcision, which is not necessary for health reasons.

      If the proposal is adopted, the Health Act, the Criminal Code and the Parental Responsibility Act must be amended and the proposers will ensure that children residing in Denmark are not exposed to the intervention in Denmark or abroad unless there is a relevant medical indication. And that "Anyone who, in the course of a body attack with or without the consent of an unauthorized person, cuts off or otherwise removes external genitalia, is punishable by imprisonment for up to 6 years".

      Note Children are among the most vulnerable citizens in society, then
      they depend on the care and protection of adults. Therefore
      society has a special obligation to protect children
      fundamental rights until they reach an age and maturity-
      where they can take on this responsibility themselves.
      The legislation must therefore equate all children under 18 years of age
      regardless of gender, cultural background or parents' religious beliefs
      evidence so that they receive the same legal requirements for bodily integrity
      and autonomy.
      The above can be achieved in several ways:
      health Act
      The following can be added in section 17 (2). 4: "For intervention which is not
      is for the direct health benefit of the person, can any-
      neither the minor or the custodian
      re giving informed consent. "
      The Criminal Code
      Section 245 a of the Penal Code is amended as follows: "Section 245 a
      by a body attack with or without the consent of a coin
      you person cut off or otherwise remove the exterior
      genital organs, in whole or in part, are punished by imprisonment until 6
      year."
      parental Responsibility Act
      Section 2 (2) of the Parental Liability Act. Paragraph 2 is amended to: 2. Bar-
      net has the right to care and security. It should be treated with re-
      spect for his person and must not be exposed to bodily
      punishment or other infringing treatment, including non-
      therapeutic circumcision. "
      parental Responsibility Act
      Section 2 (2) of the Parental Liability Act. Paragraph 2 is amended to: 2. Bar-
      net has the right to care and security. It should be treated with re-
      spect for his person and must not be exposed to bodily
      punishment or other infringing treatment, including non-
      therapeutic circumcision. "
      Neither in Denmark nor abroad
      For all three options, the following applies: To ensure that
      children residing in Denmark are not exposed to
      interventions in Denmark or abroad, unless
      also provides relevant medical indication, it is suggested that
      "Female circumcision" in section 7 (2) of the Criminal Code. 1, No. 2, point
      a, is corrected for 'circumcision, except in cases where:
      Abroad, acute, urgent medical indica-
      tion for this intervention, «.
      The measures in the proposal imply that the parental authority
      holders should no longer be able to consent to theirs
      children's behalf for medically unnecessary circumcision. It will
      ensure that children's basic rights to their own body are protected
      Danish legislation regardless of their gender or cultural background
      or their parents' religious beliefs.
      In this way, Denmark will live up to the terms of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

      states to protect children from harm and to take every effect-
      tive and appropriate precautions for abolition
      of traditional rituals that are harmful to children

      tions.
      In addition, the proposal ensures compliance with the EU Charter
      on Fundamental Rights, Article 3 (1): 'Anyone
      is entitled to respect for its physical and mental integrity '.
      The proposal also ensures implementation of bioethics
      Article 6 (2) of the vention 1, in Danish law. It requires,
      that persons who lack the ability to provide their own informed
      consent, e.g. children may only undergo medical inter-
      vention if this is of direct health benefit to
      the person.
      The introduction of an 18-year-old age for circumcision sets
      the best interests of children and their rights. Legislation should sup-
      be undertaken with a thorough and flexible information effort that
      anchors the understanding of children's individual rights in the population-
      scheme.
      About the presentation in the Folketing
      The authors of the Parliament note that this is a matter of fact
      a citizen's proposal which has been obtained within the stipulated deadline
      the number of citizens' expressions of support required
      to have the proposal presented and considered as a resolution in
      The Danish parliament.
      The citizen proposal was originally filed by Lena Nyhus, Fu-
      resø, who heads with Mikael Aktor, Copenhagen, Gü-
      ray Baba, Vallensbæk, Svend Eide Joensen, Gribskov, Leo
      Milgrom, Copenhagen, Morten Frisch, Gentofte, Kim Victory,
      Allerød, Habib Mir Ghasemi, Aarhus, and Lars Peter Bæ-
      the gutter (address protection) as co-authors.
      Proposers' presentation of the proposal to the Parliament
      expresses only that the proposers on behalf of the parties
      is, which supports the Citizens' Bill, undertakes to fulfill-
      they are a necessary condition for the citizen proposal to become
      dealt with in the Folketing in accordance with the intentions-
      ne behind the citizen proposal scheme.
      Thus, the submission cannot be taken to mean that
      the proposers necessarily support the content of the proposal.
