Physician’s Group Applauds Oregon Supreme Court for Protecting Boy from Circumcision

Doctors Opposing Circumcision (D.O.C.) celebrated the decision by the Oregon Supreme Court this week for the case of a 12-year-old Washington boy facing a religious circumcision, calling it a step forward for children’s rights.

We applaud the Court for protecting this boy. There is no more important decision to make for a male child.””
