NORWAY’S PROGRESS PARTY CALLS FOR BAN ON CIRCUMCISION OF BOYS

Article from the Jerusalem Post, although not mentioned, Muslim ritual rircumcision and halal slaughter, without stunning, are also for the chop.

Scandinavia leads the way on children’s rights and humane animal treatment where these things conflict with primitive cult practices.

“The Progress Party in Norway voted on Saturday in favor of a law banning ritual circumcision of children under the age of 16, a day after the environment committee of Belgium’s Parliament of Wallonia voted in favor of banning ritual slaughter, posing a threat to both shechita (kosher slaughter) and brit mila (circumcision) in Europe.

Proponents of the Norwegian bill, which was discussed during the party’s national gathering over the weekend, claim that circumcision constitutes mental and physical harm to children and constitutes a serious violation of children’s rights. The Progress Party is the third-largest party – with 29 of 169 seats in parliament it serves as the junior partner in Prime Minister Erna Solberg’s cabinet.”
