Swedish docs in circumcision protest
by Clara Guibourg
Circumcision of young boys for religious and non-medical reasons ought to be banned in Sweden, urged the Swedish Paediatric Society (Svenska barnläkarföreningen, BLF).
In a statement submitted to the National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen), the society called the procedure an assault.
"We consider it to be an assault on these boys," Staffan Janson, chairman of BLF's committee for ethical issues and childrens' rights, said to newspaper Göteborgs-Posten (GP).
