The Anti-Circumcision Activists of San Francisco are NOT Giving Up: Check Out “Jews for the Rights of the Child”

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Those “Jews for the Rights of the Child,” you know, part of the crowd behind the unconstitutional* effort to ban circumcision in the 415, are not giving up, despite, you know, their recent setback.

I say that because this oddly-worded poster in the Western Addition has just been replaced with two much better looking posters that transmit pretty much the same message.

Anyway, this effort has not ended – you’ve been warned.

Welcome to our new organization, Jews for the Rights of the Child.
We have been Jewish Intactivists for many years, passionately working to educate people on the harms of circumcision. For example, we encourage people to replace the harsh Brit Milah with a peaceful naming ceremony such as Brit Shalom.
When the San Francisco MGM Bill was proposed, we both realized that we too would like to see the circumcision of unconsenting minors actually OUTLAWED — yes, even for Jews (and Muslims etc).
We realize this is a radical position.
We will be writing about how and why we each came to this position, and what we are doing about it.
Meanwhile check out Beyond the Bris and other Jewish Intactivist sites.
Check back soon!
