City circumcise warning 

The city's Board of Health voted yesterday to require parental consent for a controversial form of circumcision, involving oral suction, done by some ultra-Orthodox Jews.

The board voted 9-0 to require anyone performing the ritual to get written consent from the infant's parent or guardian. The parents will have to sign a form acknowledging that the department advises against the practice because of risks of herpes and other infections.
