As a result, he was placed in a juvenile home. When Jacob was 14—and still unable to return home—he became the foster child of a pastor and his wife. Since his offense fell under juvenile court jurisdiction, Jacob was placed on a non-public registry. But that changed when he turned 18 during his senior year in high school, and his status as a sex offender became public.
Former inmates decry forced circumcision by Ronnie Layoo Gulu- Former inmates at Gulu Main Prison have accused the authorities of circumcising them against their will. The inmates say the prison wardens force them to get circumcised, saying the move is to enhance good sanitation and health living.
Speaking to the Daily Monitor recently, Mr Richard Okello, 22, who was remanded in the prison for alleged assault for three months, said the prison warders forced him to get circumcised. He said he was exposed to infection since they did not provide him treatment.
Another former inmate, Mr David Ojok, who claimed he was also forced to circumcise, said proper sanitation, which should guarantee proper healing, was not provided.
However, the regional prison commander, Mr Kenneth Mugabiirwe, dismissed the allegations. Mr Mugabiirwe acknowledged overcrowding and poor sanitation as the challenges facing the prison due to poor facilitation. The officer in-charge of Gulu Main Prison, Ms Orik Obonyo, said a committee was recently set up to carry out investigations.
December 12, German circumcision law still under fire A year ago Germany, after a long and heated debate, passed a controversial new circumcision law. A ruling by a Cologne regional court in the spring of set off a fierce debate over the Jewish and Muslim ritual of circumcision.
The court decided that non-medical circumcision amounted to bodily harm. Both supporters and critics of the practice discussed the issue at length on television and op-ed pages, employing both medical and ethical arguments.
The main question remained: A law was passed that was meant to answer that question. Paragraph d of the code of civil law declared that the circumcision of a male child is legal and must be done in accordance with "the rules of the medical profession" - as safely as possible and with appropriate and effective pain relief.
Boys, critics said, often do not undergo the procedure under safe conditions and without appropriate pain relief. But prosecutors dropped the case because no criminal responsibility could be proven against the parents, and the circumciser lived abroad and so was outside German jurisdiction.
Prosecutors, he claims, dropped the case on the grounds that applying a painkilling bandage after the circumcision was enough to ensure medical safety. That means he is not qualified to administer an anesthetic, says Gahr. The judges dismissed his case because he was not currently directly affected by the new law.
In other words, the court avoided addressing the new law itself. Some doctors are charging expectant parents a "circumcision deposit" long before they know the sex of their child, and even if the plan to leave a boy intact.
This is unethical, and increases the risk of unwanted circumcisions. MommyFeathers Has anyone else had to do this?
I am pregnant with my second child and my regular OB who delivered my daughter started a new policy that forces patients to pay a "circ deposit" before their first prenatal visit. Apparently this is a growing trend among doctors. Since it is a new policy I am worried that the staff at the hospital will see that I paid and do it anyway assuming I wanted it done.
I just found out that I am having a boy so I need to decide what to do now. I am thinking about switching to a new OB over this but I have medicaid so my options are limited. Would it be worth switching over? I am also not sure how to find an intact friendly OB so i was wondering if you could help point me in the right direction.
