Baby's Right to Choose

Reader comment on: San Fran to Ban Infant Circumcision?

Submitted by Galina Lapson (United States), Mar 3, 2011 17:56

Yes, I saw it in the news and my first thought was - how more insane the liberals can be? A woman "must" have a right to choose to kill or not her unborn baby if she feels like it. BUT in case when the baby is born, she has no right to choose to circumcise him or not because of the "humanitarian" concerns! The newborn should choose himself when he is 18.. Not only it is against Jewish Law but it is certainly worse in terms of the boy's health and pain. But never you mind that.

I would suggest to extend the idea of a Baby's Right to Choose by forbidding the parents to decide for their kids what school they should attend and what religion they should follow. After all, when they are 18 and mature enough, then they should be able better to choose what education they want. Also, parents should not have a say what food, clothes and toys their kids should have. Let's reorganize San Fran into one huge kibbutz, place all babies in nurseries and keep them free from parent's influence. How does that sound?
