Senator Mark Leno Faces Mounting Criticism From Human Rights Advocates

Last summer San Francisco intactivists made international headlines when they introduced the San Francisco Male Genital Mutilation Bill, a ballot initiative to safeguard sexual and religious freedom by protecting boys from non-consensual circumcision. In a move to stall this effort, California state Senator Mark Leno co-authored AB 768, a bill which forbids any city or county in California from "[restricting] the practice of male circumcision, or the exercise of a parent's authority to have a child circumcised." His cutting crusade is beginning to attract a backlash from human rights advocates who view the Senator's actions as an attack on men's genital autonomy.
