Selected Jurisdictions

Queensland, Australia

"In 1993, a non-binding research paper of the Queensland Law Reform Commission (Circumcision of Male Infants) concluded that "On a strict interpretation of the assault provisions of the Queensland Criminal Code, routine circumcision of a male infant could be regarded as a criminal act", and that doctors who perform circumcision on male infants may be liable to civil claims by that child at a later date.[20] No prosecutions have occurred in Queensland, and circumcisions continue to be performed."[1]
