Proposed bill looks to save money by dropping circumcisions from medicaid coverage

According to reports by NHPR's Jack Rodolico, the passing of a recently proposed bill would end medicaid coverage for circumcisions in NH.

Keith Murphy, the bill's sponsor, stated in Rodolico's article "to me there's something fundamentally wrong about strapping a baby boy to a board and amputating perfectly healthy, normal tissue."

Rodolico correctly points out that The American Academy of Pediatrics has indicated that the benefits outweight the risks assocaited with newborn male circumcision.
