Denmark’s circumcision registry to be deleted

A registry detailing male circumcisions has been deleted after the health minister stepped in to put a stop to the illegal record keeping.

The State Serum Institute (SSI) kept a database of circumcisions for 19 months despite never receiving authority to do so from the Danish Data Protection Agency (Datatilsynet).

On Sunday, Health Minister Sophie Løhde announced that she had ordered an end to the practice and on Wednesday an SSI spokesman told Berlingske that the illegally-obtained database would be deleted “within the next couple days”.

    I guess they couldn’t legitimize the database without removing the gender bias. That would mean collecting data on FGM which would be “problematic”.

  • How cool. A government program to keep track circumcised foreskin.

    That’s a good use of taxpayers money.

      DNA sampled from foreskins would include all muslim progeny. Perhaps they’re thinking ahead.

      Well they need some way of tracking down those suspected Jooooos. Trouble is that during the 50’s and 60’s a large proportion of males of all religions were circumcised, but Progressives don’t care about collateral damage when it comes to rounding up the Usual Suspects.
