Denmark won’t ban circumcision
Danish Health Minister Norby says government will have no hand in banning circumcision, emphasizes close contact with Jewish community.
Danish Health Minister Ellen Trane Norby on Sunday said that the Danish government would work to combat a bill proposing to ban circumcision in the country.
Earlier this year, a petition calling for a ban on male circumcision in Denmark went to parliament after organizers amassed more than the 50,000 signatures required to bring it to a vote.
She also noted that there are other aspects to circumcision as well, such as the child’s welfare and health. The current government, she emphasized, will have no hand in banning the ancient Jewish tradition.
Rabbi Margolin has worked to prevent circumcision bans from passing in Denmark, Norway, Germany and other European Union member states.
