 German Court: Circumcision of Young Boys Constitutes "Illegal Bodily Harm"



A regional court in Cologne, Germany, has determined that religious circumcision of young boys constitutes “illegal bodily harm,” even when performed with the consent of the parents, and that the “fundamental rights of the child to bodily integrity outweighed the fundamental rights of the parents.”

The case arose after the circumcision of a four-year-old Muslim boy led to severe bleeding and other complications. The German physician who performed the operation, identified in the proceeding only as “Dr K,” was charged by German prosecutors.

Because both Jews and Muslims hold to the sacred text of law keeping, they will most likely have these things done in secret and not in a hospital.
