At the beginning of the month, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of
Europe, a body made up lawmakers from 47 mostly European countries, adopted a
resolution identifying circumcision as a violation of male children’s “physical
integrity.”Luckily, PACE, which has called on European nations “to adopt
specific legal provisions to ensure that certain operations and practices will
not be carried out before a child is old enough to be consulted,” is powerless
to make binding laws.
