File this under the headings "what the fcuk", "if this had happened under Bush...", and "no really, what the fcuk?". http://www.denverpost.com/ci_13193337 so the US government thinks it now has the right to take the foreskins of baby boys? Jesus Christ! Whether this will or will not have any impact on HIV (for heaven sakes, isn't this what condom are for?), shouldn't the children themselves or at least their parents have a right to choose unnecessary surgery? I personally consider non-medical circumcisions to be genital mutilation, so I can't quite overstate how angry I am at this proposal. I hope this comment on the article is satire, since otherwise it is extremely chilling (my bold): if that is not satire, where does the federal government derive the authority to take part of your body just because it wants to? Surely this falls under the 4th Amendment? Otherwise doesn't the government have the right to perform compulsory lobotomies? After all, you don't have a constitutional right to your frontal lobe, right?
