Approval Of The "Nick" Of Female Circumcision

That's the proposal from a bioethics committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics right here in the United States!

From Atlas Shrugs, citing the New York Times:
In a controversial change to a longstanding policy concerning the practice of female circumcision in some African and Asian cultures, the American Academy of Pediatrics is suggesting that American doctors be given permission to perform a ceremonial pinprick or “nick” on girls from these cultures if it would keep their families from sending them overseas for the full circumcision.

The academy’s committee on bioethics, in a policy statement last week, said some pediatricians had suggested that current federal law, which “makes criminal any nonmedical procedure performed on the genitals” of a girl in the United States, has had the unintended consequence of driving some families to take their daughters to other countries to undergo 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,” the group said....


A member of the academy’s bioethics committee, Dr. Lainie Friedman Ross, associate director of the MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics at the University of Chicago, said the panel’s intent was to issue a “statement on safety in a culturally sensitive context.”

Dr. Friedman Ross said that the committee members “oppose all types of female genital cutting that impose risks or physical or psychological harm,” and consider the ritual nick “a last resort,” but that the nick is “supposed to be as benign as getting a girl’s ears pierced. It’s taking a pin and creating a drop of blood.”
Read it all.

If the above doesn't convince you of the evils of multiculturalism, nothing will.

What makes them think that will stop these people from going for the full circumcision?

The point of female circumcision is control of women by men.

These Africans are stupid? They know what a clitoris is. They know it gives women pleasure. They don't want women to have pleasure. That's the point.

Here' what will happen if this suggestion is made the rule;

our of adherence to multiculti bullshit, they will employ African/Arab Muslim Drs. to do the "nick". Those Drs. will give the entire female circumcision, and get away with it, until someone makes a stink. But, that won't be til years later, as happened with child sexual abuse. Because children don't know to report this stuff until they are older.

I read a lot of disgusting stuff on the web, but this story attempting to justify FGM is beyond the pale.

Prosecute and imprison the families who have clitorectomies performed. Have we ever done that, or is it just another empty threat of justice where there is none?

"Culturally sensitive" means the requirements of reason and human rights must take a back seat to superstition and "traditions" of social control.

"Female circumcision" is illegal in Israel and heavily punishable !!
Why not for male circumcision as well? Huh?... Just asking ...


I've seen the reality of FGM in reality back in 1982 ( Lebanon ! ).
The poor girl ( 8yr ) had to be flown to the "Rambam Hospital" in Haifa by an IDF helicopter...

FGM in any form is evil. Worse than evil -- whatever the vocabulary word would be.
