Danes want circumcision banned
Three out of every four Danes want to ban the circumcision of boys, unless it's for medical reasons. A YouGov survey for Metroxpress newspaper revealed that 74 percent of the over 1,000 Danes asked want to completely or partially ban the circumcision of boys, while just 10 percent want the practice to remain legal.
"Circumcision is cutting a healthy part of the body from a boy," Lena Nyhus, the founder of Intact Danmark, an association against the circumcision of children, told Metroxpress. "Denmark ought to be a pioneer when it comes to children's rights. We need an age limit of 18 years."
