State Assemblyman Mike Gatto, right, of Los Angeles speaks about circumcision outside a medical clinic as state Assemblywoman Fiona Ma, center, and a protester look on during a news conference in San Francisco, Thursday, July 21, 2011. The two state Assembly members plan to introduce a bill that would preempt local governments from enacting laws regarding male circumcision and reserve such legislation for the state level. Assemblyman Gatto says the bill is in response to recent efforts at the local level, including a November ballot measure to ban circumcision in San Francisco. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg) less
