Mother charged with forcing daughter to undergo FGM wants her ankle monitor removed because it irritates her skin

26

No favors should be done for this woman. FGM involves partial or total removal of the clitoris causing injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. It has no health benefits for girls and women, and removes all possibility of sexual pleasure. It is the worst kind of misogyny. Procedures can cause severe bleeding and problems urinating, and later cysts, infections, as well as complications in childbirth and increased risk of newborn deaths.

The enemedia always goes out of its way to cover for and scrub Islam from any connection with this misogynistic Islamic practice. Authorities will never be able to address the problem adequately because they’re too busy going out their way to say that it is not Islamic in practice Female genital mutilation (FGM) or clitoridectomy is an Islamic tradition, rampant in the Muslim world. Dissemblers and deceivers claim that FGM is cultural phenomenon, not religious. FGM is an Islamic cultural phenomenon. FGM is found only within and adjacent to Muslim communities (source: Gerry Mackie, “Ending Footbinding and Infibulation: A Convention Account”, American Sociological Review.)

200 Million Girls Have Undergone FGM, 70 Million More Than Previously Thought

“In fact, genital disfigurement has become so common in America’s immigrant communities that the Department of Justice has taken to printing Arabic brochures for immigrants, encouraging them not to disfigure young girls by removing their sexual organs.”

A couple of years ago, the American Academy of Pediatrics advocated that American doctors be allowed to stick girls’ clitorises with a needle, so as to satisfy Muslim families’ demand for female genital mutilation: “It might be more effective if federal and state laws enabled pediatricians to reach out to families by offering a ritual nick as a possible compromise to avoid greater harm.”

Sanctioning the savagery.

A Michigan mother charged with forcing her daughter to undergo genital mutilation wants her ankle monitor removed claiming that it irritates her skin, according to court documents filed in the case by her attorney on Tuesday.

The Oakland County mother, who has not been publicly named to protect the identity of her minor daughter, has requested for a judge to approve that the device to be removed from her ankle, the Detroit Free Press reported.

In the documents filed by her attorney, Brian Legghio, the woman argues that the ankle monitor ‘serves no practical purpose and there is no reason to continue wearing it for the next eight months.’

She added that the device ‘can never be removed — even while showering, bathing and sleeping,’ that it is ‘physically uncomfortable and causes irritation to the skin,’ and that it is ‘unnecessarily intrusive’.

Her attorney wrote: ‘It’s visual presence and it’s intermittent beeping requires (her) to explain to her 8-year-old and 5-year-old children why their mother must wear an electronic bracelet on her ankle.’

He stressed that his client had ‘no prior criminal record whatsoever’ and that she does not pose a threat to the community.

He described the woman as a stay-at-home mother who cares for her family daily while taking her children to school events and attending prayer at her local mosque.

Prosecutors have not commented on her request.

The mother’s case also involves eight defendants, including two doctors, a physician’s wife and four other mothers.

They are all accused of participating in subjecting young girls to genital mutilation as part of a religious practice within their Indian Muslim sect – the Dawoodi Bohra.

According to members of the religious group, the common age for the procedure to be performed on girls is seven.

Authorities and prosecutors believe that an estimated 100 girls had been subjected to the shocking procedure at a Livonia clinic over the last 12 years.

This is the first genital mutilation case in America after it came to light back in April when Dr. Jumana Nagarwala was indicted.

Nagarwala had worked as an emergency room physician at Henry Ford before she was terminated.

She allegedly performed the procedure on two Michigan girls and two Minnesota girls at the Livonia clinic where the owner, Dr. Fakuruddin Attar and his wife, Farida Attar, have also been charged in the case.

All of the defendants are members of the Dawoodi Bohra. The trial will begin in June for the case….
