Swiss hospitals shun Zurich circumcision ban
by Malcolm Curtis
A decision by a Zurich hospital to stop performing circumcisions is not finding any followers at other Swiss healthcare facilities.
The Zurich University Children's Hospital announced last week it was halting the surgical procedure in non-medical cases while it considered legal and ethical concerns following a German court decision.
But Basel's university pediatric clinic (UKBB) announced on Monday that it would continue to perform such surgery.
