2001 Agreement Reached in Circumcision Case
A settlement was reached on July 24, 2001, between a baby boy's parents, whose disagreement over whether to circumcise their son, Asher Nathaniel Grisham, born July 4, almost ended in court. Rodney Grisham, 25, the baby's father, said his son will not be circumcised and he wouldn't have agreed to "anything less." He argued that circumcision amounts to sexual assault. Sheila Grisham, 21, the baby's mother, argued that not doing it was against her religious beliefs, although she is a Christian, a religion that does not require circumcision. Prior to the settlement, Rodney filed a protection from abuse order to stop the procedure.
He lives in Wichita! He's the NOCIRC 'representative' or whatever!

"The baby's mother argued that not doing it was against her religious beliefs."

The baby doesn't belong to that religion!
If it's in her religion, she can circumcise HERSELF. Not somebody else.
