While this may sound like a sympathetic policy, it ventures into territory which usurps a parent’s rights. This also prevents legitimate religious beliefs from being followed. Lastly there is no study which provides the long term effects of the proposed actions. This may cause irreversible changes in a child’s development, for an issue which they may later in life desire to not adhere to any longer. I am certain that society will look back on this as an unfounded action, based on no evidence, having lifelong consequences, and locking people into a life that they may have been only passingly interested in living. This is too far for the state to try commanding.
