Life in "Progress" City - San Francisco edition

So your city is on the verge of bankruptcy, what can you do to turn things around?

Just follow what the "progressives" of San Francisco would do............ban circumcisions........

The city that will soon outlaw toys in McDonald’s Happy Meals could have a measure banning circumcision on next November’s ballot, reports CBS San Francisco.

“It’s genital mutilation,” said Lloyd Schofield, the author of a San Francisco ballot measure that would make it a “misdemeanor to circumcise, excise, cut or mutilate the…genitals” of a person under 18.

Baby boys in San Francisco may be relieved but not everybody agrees with a proposed ban.

“I just had him circumcised 3 weeks ago,” said Heather Wisnicky of Sacramento, mother of Tyler, a 6-week-old baby boy. “It’s a health issue. It’s cleaner,” she said.

Scientists with the Centers for Disease Control are still studying whether circumcisions are healthier, and have promised recommendations to the public. Meanwhile, according to the New York Times, a CDC researcher reported a sharp drop in the number of American parents choosing circumcision in hospitals - from 56 percent in 2006 to less than 33 percent last year.

How is it that the people most inclined to repeat the mantra of choice as it pertains to chopping up babies, seem to forget about it when it comes to happy meals, salt in our diets, trans fats, and now circumcisions?

Eliminating foreskins?

Now that's "progressive"!!!!!!!!!
