Re: Petition to end circ on minors.
I didn't sign it - not that I don't agree with it, but it is already illegal in the US. The female genital mutilation law of 1996 prohibits it for girls, and the 14th amendment protects a boy's equal rights. When the 1996 FGM law turns 18 in 2 years, all of the boys circed since its passing in 1996 will, upon reaching their 18th birthday, be eligible to sue the hospitals/mohels who performed their circumcision. Then, when hospitals are profiting off of it because they are paying out for lawsuits/settlements, we will see more hospitals refusing to do it like some west coast hospitals already have.
