2. Baby Dies From Circumcision Ritual

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/06/baby-dies-circumcision-ritual-herpes_n_1322420.html

The boy is the second New York area infant in recent years to die from complications related to the Orthodox Jewish ritual of metzitzah b'peh, during which "the mohel places his mouth on the freshly circumcised penis to draw blood away from the cut," according to the New York City Department of Heath.


apparently there are alternatives....

The Rabbincal Council of America supports using a sterilized tube to suction the wound, FOX News observes. In a news release, the organization states the method "absolutely fulfills the precept whilst placing the infant and mohel at no additional risk."

Maybe people would respect their right to religious freedom if it didn't involved killing a baby in the process.
