Lloyd Schofield, an organizer of a San Francisco ballot measure banning male circumcision, leaves after testifying against a bill to block similar efforts before the Senate Judiciary Committee at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif., Tuesday, Aug. 23, 2011. If approved by the legislature and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, the bill, by Assemblyman Mike Gatto, D-Los Angeles, right, would short-circuit future attempts to pass local laws or ballot initiatives liming male circumcision on medical or any other basis. Schofield's ballot measure was struck from the November ballot in San Francisco by San Francisco Superior Court Judge Loretta Giorgi who ruled that California law says only the state, not cities can regulate medical procedures.
