Rep. Brad Sherman Defending Circumcision in US


United States Representative Brad Sherman is expected to introduce a bill to prevent cities from banning male circumcision, the California lawmaker's office said Tuesday.

Sherman's bill comes in response to a measure that qualified recently for the November ballot in San Francisco that would outlaw the circumcision of males under the age of 18, making it punishable by a $1,000 fine and a one-year prison term.
