Norway minister discounts anti-circumcision move
by Michael Sandelson
Minister of Health Anne-Grete Strøm-Erichsen is reportedly not going to ban ritual circumcision of boys in Norway.
Norwegian Ministry officials sent a legal proposal to allow ritual neo-natal circumcisions at hospitals out for hearing in May 2011 aimed at preventing the practise going underground. The issue of permitting this is to be discussed in Parliament after the summer recess.
Child Ombudsman Reidar Hjermann has also argued for the imposing of a minimum age requirement of 15.
