...Case could open floodgates for a new wave
of ‘male genital mutilation’ complaints
By Lois Rogers: A British GP is to be prosecuted by an outraged mother for assault after circumcising her baby boy without her consent.
It is the first time legal aid has supported such an action and, if successful, campaigners claim the case could open the floodgates for a new wave of ‘male genital mutilation’ complaints from men who say they were subjected to the procedure as children, before they could decide for themselves.
The operation took place when the baby, whose parents are separated, was taken to visit his father’s family.
