The 53-year-old, who was born into a Jewish family himself, but no longer identifies with the religion, said his main issues arose from the principle that patients needed to be able to consent to surgical procedures.
“I follow the basic principles of medical ethics and circumcision is given a free pass to bypass that,” he said.

Dr Niall McCrae, a mental health lecturer at King’s College London, claims it should be considered in the same regard as female genital mutilation.

In response to local vegan MP’s post about slaughterhouses’ dubious conduct in the humane treatment of animals – she did not mention halal or kosher slaughter methods …
Video every kill by law. Method of slaughter to be included in food labeling. Stop meat that has been slaughtered according to Islamic or Jewish hard line religious law being put into the food chain without being labelled as such – the cult followers insist that their meat is labelled – ordinary people don’t want to subsidize this gross form of occult practice that is cruel to animals. Stop cult followers from cruelly slitting the throats of animals in the name of their idols – this is gross – they are more concerned with religious doctrine than the humane treatment of animals – they are quite prepared to skin the peni of their male children (this should be legislated against) so there is not much hope of these religious zealots reforming their bronze age cult without legislation. It was sexist not to include boys and intersex children in the legislation that claims to protect Somali heritage Muslim British girls from these barbaric cult rituals. Shame on you Politicians – for allowing that to happen – it was because the Politically correct had a crisis of cause – and Mr Rothschild wanders around the corridors of power without being elected – religious “freedom” or protect all children from their parents desire to mutilate them – you guys chose to let boys and intersex kids be cut about for an easy political life. Disgusting. Sexist, Discriminates against Somalis in favour of Jews and other Muslims. Totally messed up morals – inept application of ethics in the unsuccesful legislation – how can you tell a person -“you can dock your son’s penis on the kitchen table if you like – but don’t send your girl to a top Egyptian surgeon who will take only a symbolic nick from her genitalia to acknowledge the hadith”. Change the law so all children are protected – no child has religious freedom to avoid their penis being skinned – no baby has a religion. It’s touching you are concerned for animal welfare – but still in this country baby boys die from circumcision operations that are totally medically uncalled for. Barbarians. Many modern Jews no longer do this blood sacrifice ritual anymore – so the rest of the cult followers can follow suite. Religious freedom is not license to be cruel to children and animals. I will be following your efforts on these fronts. Is genital mutilation a Labour Policy so long as it is not a girl?
“Chaplin accused the U.N. of double standards by seeking to ban female genital mutilation but allowing male circumcision. The U.N. and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have campaigned for years to end the practise of any female genital cutting for non-medical reasons and have stressed that it is not comparable to male circumcision.”
In my view, the cutting of any child for religious rituals, medical fashion, or parental preference, is despicable.
FGM is directly comparable to MGM.
RUSSIAN ORTHODOX ARCHPRIEST OPPOSES BAN ON FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION
UK viewers will not understand the first comment as the decision to circumcise is not a common one in the UK – you either abuse your child in this way because your religion, Islam or Orthodox Judaism, demands it – or you don’t even think about it – as the vast majority of native Britons born since the formation of the NHS (National Health Service) don’t think about it. Routine infant circumcision, MGM, was recognised as of no medical value and therefore not funded in the newly formed NHS in 1940s Britain.
Debate from 2015 (4 minutes). “African studies”, “30%”, and several other “facts” need to be checked and will be found lacking, as is the banner claiming MGM reduces the risk of penile cancer – penile cancer is extremely rare.
It is a bit silly asking a Jewish or Muslim Doctor to comment fairly on this issue. Fox should have got a non-religious Doctor to comment as well or instead of. Religious precedent for parents’ “preferences” soon crops up in the debate which was originally about rights of the child and possible medical benefits or lack thereof. Although religious precedent suggests many barbaric things concerning non heterosexual relationships modern Jews do not do them – why should MGM be different – why abuse children?
Attitudes, even in cultures where genital mutilation is the norm, are changing. This person paid a heavy price. Brave husband and wife for standing up to cultural pressure for their daughter …
“… Olalowo Hammed Olalekan and his wife, Modinat, were harassed after being pressured repeatedly by family members and members of their community to bring their daughter for circumcision as was usual with traditional requirements.
According to New Telegraph, the couple have reportedly fled the shores of Nigeria for the safety of their children. …”
