Obama Signs Bill into Law Protecting Advocates of Male Circumcision from Religious Persecution

On December 20, 2016, President Barack Obama signed into law a bill protecting advocates of circumcision (and other groups) from religious persecution. 

While implicit government support for cutting the genitals of children is not a positive development, the actual impact of this event on work to protect children's genital autonomy is expected to be minimal to non-existent.

It is also good news that this event appears to have been largely ignored or downplayed by major media sources.
