Closed petition Make Male Genital Mutilation (Circumcision) an offence unless medically required
I’m asking the UK Government to criminalise circumcision, no exceptions for Religious circumstances, unless it has to be done for medical reasons, such as an infection. Parents or medical professionals found Circumcising children otherwise should be prosecuted accordingly.
The fact that FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) is criminalised but MGM isn’t is extremely sexist & wrong.
MGM can have a profound effect on children’s mental health and it is often done without the child’s consent.
I am asking that performing or allowing MGM to be performed be made a specific criminal offence. Where a parent is involved the penalties should include losing their child.
