A German court in Cologne ruled that circumcising young boys infringes on their right to be protected from grievous bodily harm on Tuesday, causing outrage from Jewish and Muslim groups who were upset with the ruling, according to multiple reports.The decision came in the case of a doctor who was prosecuted for circumcising a four-year-old Muslim boy, who just two days later had to be treated post-operative bleeding, according to the Toronto Star. But the court found that the child’s “fundamental right to bodily integrity” was more important than his parents’ fundamental rights to religious freedom, the New York Times reported. The hospital doctor who treated the boy for the injury later called the police, but the doctor who performed the circumcision was acquitted because there was no law banning religious circumcision at the time. The court ruled that the religious freedom “would not be unduly impaired” as the child would later have the option of deciding whether or not to have the circumcision. “The religious freedom of the parents and their right to educate their child would not be unacceptably compromised, if they were obliged to wait until the child could himself decide to be circumcised,” the court added. No age restriction or any specific details were given. The ruling will only apply to the Cologne area, but many fear that some doctors may now decline to do the procedure due to the possibility of charges brought upon them.
