Making a Mountain of a Mohel

“San Francisco may vote on banning male circumcision,” Reuters reports. But since the San Fransisco Examiner noted in March that “San Francisco [is] becoming a child-free zone as youth population declines,” and even the Associated Press was forced to report in 2005 that “San Francisco has the smallest share of small-fry of any major U.S. city,” this issue is yet another self-defeating reduction in freedom for the city and its residents.

As I wrote last month, all of this makes you wonder: when the next San Francisco far left loony rails on against the dangers of Happy Meals, Junior ROTC, family-friendly SUVs or heck, circumcision, what’s the point of passing these laws when there are fewer and fewer kids left in the city?
