Battle over Florida boy’s circumcision enters federal court

Arguments that a Florida boy’s impending circumcision amounts to a constitutional issue are being seen with skepticism as a federal judge weighs whether to proceed with the case. Thirty-one-year-old Heather Hironimus has been behind bars since Thursday in a long-running dispute over the removal of her 4-year-old child’s foreskin. She went missing with the boy nearly three months ago and ignored a state judge’s warning she would be jailed if she didn’t appear in court and give consent for the procedure to proceed.
