    Not sure where to flag this, but the following link contains an analysis of Iceland’s proposal to ban circumcision for males under the age of consent: blog.practicalethics.ox.ac.uk/2018/04/should-iceland-ban-circumcision-a-legal-and-ethical-analysis, is authored by Lauren Notini (Melbourne University) and Brian D. Earp (Oxford University), and is dated 22 April 2018.

    “Iceland’s proposed legislation seeks to criminalise circumcision on male minors that is unnecessary ‘for health reasons,’ stating individuals who remove ‘part or all of the sexual organs shall be imprisoned for up to 6 years.'”

    The author’s sate that: “While the bill concerns circumcisions not performed for ‘health reasons’, it does not define the term ‘health.’ This is an oversight, as the term is not self-evident.”

      Thanks!

      “Not sure where to flag this…”

      If you want to just share something and make a comment, it’s fine that you post them in this series…

      If you want to submit something for posting on the main blog, there is an orange “Submit Content” link on the right side of this blog. It’s meant for accepting this sort of thing, for a post on the main blog.

      https://ourlovefrontier.wordpress.com/submit-content-our-love-frontier-blog#top

      If you post it in the comments section, I may still treat it as though it came through the “Submit Content” page.

        Thanks for the direction Steve. I searched using the keyword circumcision, but failed to find any matches … although I know the topic has been discussed a number of times before. I prefer to comment in the relevant place on your blog whenever possible. I am happy for you to place my contributions where you see fit … its known as delegation ;o)

        We are rapidly closing in on 3,500 posts, here…That doesn’t seem like a lot, when contemplating what a blog search should be able to do…But I’ve been astounded how difficult it can even be for me, to find an old post I know was published here…but, maybe I don’t remember the post title…

        It’s kind of strange…but the search feature can be very hit or miss…even when it seems like it should have no problems.

      I’ve made the following response, part of this post here:

      https://ourlovefrontier.wordpress.com/2018/04/24/should-iceland-ban-circumcision-a-legal-and-ethical-analysis/

      …So, if you want to leave a reply there, feel free.

      By the way…what do you think about Stephen Moreton’s comments?…aside from the fact that they may come off a bit aggressive…and maybe condescending…and they’re obviously vigorously defending circumcision…

      One reasonable take away, is that he thinks all males should be compelled to “take one for the team”, because third world countries [which lack the same hygiene resources as “first world”] might not want to circumcise their boys anymore, and HIV [etc.] might explode in those regions…

      …He also compares it to the effectiveness of a vaccine…

      I’ve never bought into the notion, that an unnecessary surgery of this nature should take place, except in the presence of an immediate danger to the individual…

      …I mean…I’m sorry if they don’t have running water in their village…or other resources, that would vastly eliminate diseases and infections without circumcision…But does that make it rational or moral, to force it upon people who overwhelmingly, do not statistically need it, because their living conditions are different?

      I know this may sound like a naïve question, given the sheer magnitude of such a project…But wouldn’t it be more humane and decent of us, to help them bring their living conditions up to first world standards, instead of leaving them in it?…and pushing them to cut off boys foreskins, to better survive in it?

      How many trillions would it cost to overhaul a country in Africa?…

      …How many trillions is it worth, to save these boys bodily integrity [and whatever else they lose from this]?

      Even if I have some distaste for Stephens conclusion…I have to admit, most people aren’t likely to even consider such a humane intervention, with such a high price tag…

      …And the African AIDs crisis, is a serious one.

      Does it make sense in Africa, while it’s overwhelmingly foolish in the more modern countries?

      …What a shitty circumstance for African boys.

      It’s cases like these…where we find out how much the world honestly does care.

    A further M.A.Voice topic, potentially, perhaps for the May issue: Childhood ‘Innocence’ is Not Ideal: Virtue Ethics and Child–Adult Sex by Tom O’Carroll link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs12119-018-9519-1

    Tom discusses this peer-reviewed scholarly article here: tomocarroll.wordpress.com/2018/05/07/welcome-to-the-joys-of-springer

    An important work it seems to me having read it, and I suggest we help Tom in broadcasting the messages within it as loudly as we can.
