ACLU under fire for defending genital mutilation

The American Civil Liberties Union has once again come under fire for its defense of forced circumcision and ritual genital cutting of children. In 2011, the ACLU of Northern California argued that the San Francisco Male Genital Mutilation Bill ballot initiative violated a parent's right to subject healthy children to non-therapeutic genital cutting practices such as male circumcision in order to satisfy the religious beliefs of the child's parents.

Protesters hold signs criticizing the ACLU for its defense of forced male circumcision.
