Sweden: Counties should offer religious circumcision

All counties should offer religious circumcision for boys, according to a recommendation from the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions, reports TT.  Stockholm county is one of the counties which does not offer religious circumcision for boys.

Today many parents who want to circumcise their sons are referred to someone outside the health services because many counties only offer circumcision for medical reasons.

Some of the operations are performed by people who have a permit from the Health and Welfare Board, but many have their boys circumcised abroad or by individuals who do not have a permit.
