Abstract
Arguments like religion, tradition, equality and individual rights exist in the debate on the controversial subject of male circumcision. The purpose of this analysis of the argumentation is to clarify how the Swedish legislation on male circumcision does not take in to account the principle of equal treatment between persons of different sex. In addition, violations of rights are identified. The arguments presented in the paper shows that the legislation constitutes discrimination on grounds of both gender and religion, the right to bodily integrity is not ensured and boys do not enjoy religious freedom in Sweden.
