San Francisco voters may decide on a measure in the next election to make male circumcision a misdemeanor offense carrying a $1,000 fine. It was proposed by city resident Lloyd Schofield, who contends circumcision is a cosmetic surgery that should be left up to a man upon turning 18.
"People can practice whatever religion they want, but your religious practice ends with someone else's body," Schofield told CBS News San Francisco. "It's a man's body and... his body doesn't belong to his culture, his government, his religion or even his parents. It's his decision."
