The reasons for such a call in my opinion are as follows:
- It is the only way to immediately protect babies from circumcsion
- It is a great tactic for getting the subject discussed and into public awareness, and one of the few ways the media will cover the negative aspects of circumcision
- A law banning circumcision would be a recognition of the human rights violations that circumcision actually is
- It would give males the same protection under the law as females
- The procircs will fight with every last breath to prevent this, including calling on politicians to protect circumcision under the law,
- Motovate governements and their departments within circumcision cultures to through away science and ethics in order to protect circumcion as the CDC and AAP have recently done
- Timing of such a move. Realistically The timing is too early in circumcision cultures, Education needs to have the greatest priority for years if not decades first and foremost.
- The fightback by religions, and the power they weild, a more softly approach such as empowering change from within religions through education, resources and support.
