Should circumcision be a crime? This is a question that Santa Monica voters may soon be asking themselves.
The proposed ban on circumcision for boys under the age of 18 is already on San Francisco's November ballot, but KTLA now reports that Santa Monica may soon be following San Francisco's footsteps with its own proposed circumcision ban.
The group supporting the "MGM Bill" is pushing for a ballot measure in Santa Monica that would make the act of cutting the foreskin of male genitals on a person under age 18 a misdemeanor crime. The proposed San Francisco measure would make circumcising a boy punishable with a $1,000 find and one year of imprisonment.
