Time flies! It seems like just yesterday we were blabbing about a San Francisco man, Lloyd Schofield, trying to ban circumcision to prevent "genital mutilation" on baby boys.
Last November we learned he needed 7,168 signatures by about this time to get the proposal on this fall's voting ballot, but by golly, he's done it!
In fact, he got 12,000! We had no idea this was such a hot issue, but apparently there are A LOT of people against circumcision.
If the proposal passes by popular vote, it will be "unlawful to circumcise, excise, cut, or mutilate the whole or any part of the foreskin, testicles, or penis" of anyone 17 or younger in San Francisco.
However, it's not on the ballot YET. San Fran's Department of Elections first must double check to see if the signatures came from registered city voters, but should know within a month.
