Boys not circumcised without medical grounds
by David Landes
By refusing to perform circumcisions on boys who lack specific medical grounds for the operation, several county and regional health authorities in Sweden continue to contravene national guidelines on the procedure.
In Örebro county in central Sweden, for example, patients are directed to doctors in Stockholm and Norrköping, Sveriges Radio (SR) reports.
"Our doctors don't think its right to prioritize these (operations) ahead of others who need care," Marie-Louise Forsberg Fransson, chair of the Örebro county council board, told SR.
