A bill proposed in the state legislature would end Medicaid payments for circumcisions.
The bill’s sponsor, state representative Keith Murphy of Bedford, describes the practice as unethical.
"To me there’s something fundamentally wrong about strapping a baby boy to a board and amputating perfectly healthy, normal tissue," says Murphy.
Murphy adds trimming circumcisions from the state budget will save money, although how much will be determined by the legislature next year.
