Judges Hear Appeal of NY Rule on Circumcision with Oral Suction

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

A federal court began hearing arguments on Tuesday by orthodox Jews appealing a  New York City rule that requires parents to agree to the rite of oral suction in circumcisions, The New York Daily News reported.

The city restricted the practice following 11 cases of herpes of boys who were circumcised with what in Hebrew is known as “metzitzah b’peh.” The practice is widely followed in Israel without controversy.

The orthodox Jewish groups are appealing a lower court decision supporting the law this past January
