Circumcision Case in Oregon
Concurring Opinions draws attention to a case before the Oregon Supreme Court involving circumcision of a 12 year-old convert to Judaism.
On November 6, the Oregon Supreme Court heard a dispute between parents over the circumcision of their 12-year-old son. The father, who has recently converted to Judaism and has full custody of the boy, wants him circumcised. The mother is trying to stop the procedure and argues that it is both sexual and physical abuse. The lower court dismissed her challenge but would not permit the circumcision to occur until all appeals were exhausted.
