(JTA) -- The main backer of a ballot measure to ban circumcision in Santa Monica has dropped the effort over its perceived attack on religious freedom.

Jena Troutman told the Jewish Journal Monday afternoon that she would withdraw the proposed ballot initiative to prohibit "Genital Cutting of Male Minors," which she submitted to the Santa Monica City Clerk on May 19, the newspaper reported on its website.
