The Great Medico-Legal Debate 2020:

Should male circumcision be made unlawful except when clinically required?

Currently in the news due to the popular Netflix documentary, American Circumcision, this debate topic encourages us to consider whether there is a moral difference between male circumcision and female genital cutting, and raises interesting questions regarding, parental rights, autonomy, gender, views/wishes of the child, family law, culture/custom, and religion. Debate rivals at medical schools and law schools in both Glasgow and Edinburgh will consider issues of medical law and ethics arising over possible changes to the law.

The event is free and open to all.
