A tip of the hat to talkRADIO for this. An extract:
Although non-therapeutic male circumcision is not offered on the NHS…
This is inaccurate. Whilst not widespread, we know some Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in the NHS cover the cost of MGM, particular in areas where populations of Jews or Muslims tend to be poor, and in the absence of doctors performing MGM, the risk of even more damage than is inevitable during MGM is high. We have not campaigned against NHS-funded (i.e. taxpayer-funded, mainly male taxpayer-funded) MGM, for fear of driving parents into paying criminals (Offences Against the Person Act 1861) to carry out the mutilations of their boys in less sanitary conditions than would be expected in a hospital environment.
