Mother goes to court to block circumcision of 3-year-old son

Seems a bit late to be doing this.
Check it out:

An appeals court in Florida has stepped into a fight being waged by a mother to prevent the circumcision of her three-year-old son.

Jumping into a fight that so far has pitted the child’s mother, Heather Hironimus of Boynton Beach, against the father, Dennis Nebus of Boca Raton, the Fourth District Court of Appeal in Florida said it was calling a halt to a circumcision plan by a lower court – “pending further order.”

The lower court’s decision had been outlined in a report in the Broward Palm Beach New Times.

The report said Judge Jeff Gillen had affirmed a parenting agreement between the two that allows for the circumcision.

“The court finds that there is no reason why the parties should not be held to the terms of their Agreed Parenting Plan as mandated by this court’s Jan. 6, 2012, final judgment,” the judge said. “The court does not find the mother in contempt at this time; if, however, she fails to comply with this order she will be subject to contempt adjudication…”

The order requires the mother to sign the required “documents” for the circumcision.

She had appealed not only to the court but to the public to halt the plan.
