Denmark gov't to prevent non-medical circumcision
Denmark has commissioned a report into whether male circumcision is always carried out in line with national health guidelines, the prime minister said Aug. 23.
"We must make sure that things take place in a proper way. And the government is taking the initiative to do so. We will investigate whether the National Board of Health recommendations are being met," Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt told national daily Politiken Online.
Controversy surrounding the non-medical circumcision of young boys arose earlier this summer when Danish media revealed that the National Board of Health did not monitor the conditions under which circumcision takes place.
