A petition demanding parliament consider implementing a ban on circumcising boys under 18 is set to be considered by parliament.
The petition reached in June the 50,000 signatures required to force parliament to take up the issue.
Parliament's justice administration (Lovsekretariat) has since processed the petition and found it not to be in breach of the constitution and therefore valid for parliamentary consideration.
Intact Danmark, a lobby group opposed to circumcision of healthy children, told broadcaster DR it expected parliament to vote on the issue in October.
"We are pleased. It is a small piece of Danish and world history that we are now ready to take this step," the group's chairperson Lena Nyhus told DR.
