A ballot measure to ban circumcision in San Francisco has become a national punch line, but it's being taken seriously by religious groups who see the proposal as an attack on their faith.
"We're opposing the ban on the grounds of religious freedom," said Nancy Appel, Anti-Defamation League associate regional director. "San Francisco has a reputation for crazy things happening here, but we are concerned that this may embolden others."
Even so, "It's nearly universal with Jewish boys," said Ms. Appel.
