Keep Walking


Support for the Massachusetts Male Genital Mutilation (MGM) bill continues to grow!

Two blogs are discussing the Massachusetts MGM Bill, which is now awaiting assignment by the clerk to a study committee, the bill will be sent to the Joint Committee on the Judiciary (or another committee) for study, possible hearings, debate, and a vote!

Matthew Hess of the National MGMbill office and I were interviewed about the MGM Bill today by the Patriot Ledger -- watch out for a firestorm of more news stories coming out of this!
