Voters in the Nov. 8 municipal election will decide whether to prohibit male circumcisions for those under 17 years of age in San Francisco -- with no exemptions for religious circumcisions, CNN reported Thursday.
Advocates of the measure likened circumcision to "male genital mutilation," said Lloyd Schofield, a member of the group seeking to outlaw the surgery.
Schofield and his group want to make it "unlawful to circumcise, excise, cut, or mutilate the whole or any part of the foreskin, testicles, or penis" of anyone 17 or younger in San Francisco."
The proposal calls for violators to be jailed for as much as a year or fined as much as $1,000, CNN reported.
