The customs of the savage, and they’ve come to Europe and the U.S. as well. Any society that tolerates the deliberate mutilation of women and girls cannot call itself part of the civilized world. Britain, France and others are going the way of Somalia.
And it’s coming here, too. When we went to Columbia University for our video series, we asked students if Planned Parenthood should fund female genital mutilation. The overwhelming response was yes. That should frighten every rational human in America.
Where are the feminists? What a phony movement.
“Somali father defends FGM after daughter, 10, dies,” BBC, July 22, 2018:
And if you can, please contribute to Geller Report. YOU make the work possible.
The father of a 10-year-old girl who died after undergoing female genital mutilation (FGM) in Somalia has defended the practice.
Dahir Nur’s daughter died of blood loss on 17 July, two days after being taken to a traditional circumciser.
But he told Voice of America (VOA) “people in the area are content” with FGM even considering the dangers, adding it is the country’s “culture”.
According to Unicef, 98% of girls and women in Somalia have undergone FGM.
This is despite Somalia’s constitution prohibiting – although not outlawing – the practice, which involves the partial or total removal of the female external genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons and can cause profound health problems.
Dr Abdirahman Omar Hassan, director of Hanano hospital in the city of Dhusamareb, told VoA he had never seen “anyone who was mutilated like that in my life”.
Dr Hassan, who was on the team who tried to save the girl, also revealed she had caught tetanus, most likely from the unsterilised equipment used during the original procedure.
But Mr Nur said he did not want to pursue charges, and held no one to blame for his daughter’s death….
Efforts to criminalise FGM in Somalia have been stalled by politicians, who fear it will alienate voters who believe it is a religious requirement, while girls who have not undergone it are reportedly taunted for not being cut.
