Female circumcision is a go go in the US? who’s behind it?


Normal female genitalia

Welcome to the sub-Saharan Africa in the US.

In a stark contrast to a longstanding policy, we got a shock from the US Pediatric Academy.

At the end of last month, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) issued a revised policy statement on female genital mutilation (FMG) called “ritual genital cutting of female minors,”

Female circumcision is a custom in many African and Asian countries whereby the genitals of a girl child are cut.

The Academy Ponders a permit to Female ‘Nick’ to be “culturally sensitive” and to please parents seeking  female circumcision.

According to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, more than 130 million women and girls worldwide have suffered some form of FGM. Some immigrant parents from countries like Egypt, Sudan, Somalia, and others in Europe and the United States, where FGM is common, go on with this practice in the West fully aware  it is criminal. Some of them sneak their daughters out of the country during the long school summer vacation so that they can be subjected to any forms of FGM.

The impact on  girls  is that sexual feelings are either inhibited or terminated. Sexual intercourse is often extremely painful for the woman. Childbirth often involves a Caesarian section

Appeasing the outdated cultural needs of  immigrants, will create better opportunity for integration?!  What a silly thought.

FGM in a clinic near you! Let’s all try to find who’s behind the backward move.

Update: in Iraq
