Australia: a clit-cutting nation?

Tim Blair

America’s slicing community  forced medical authorities to review their previous opposition to female mutilation:

In areas with large numbers of east Africans – in Seattle and Minnesota, for example – it was clear that just saying no was often inadequate.

‘’We had families explicitly tell [paediatricians] that if we did nothing they would take their kids back to Africa where they would not have control over how harmful a procedure was done,’’ Dr Diekema said. ‘’What they needed was something that satisfied what they believed were the demands of their religion.’’  PEN vs SWORD

As in the United States, Australian medics waver:

Australian doctors are considering a controversial form of genital mutilation on baby girls.

The practice involving cutting a girl’s genitals, sometimes with razors or pieces of glass, could be allowed in a clinical setting to stem illegal backyard procedures which are leaving young girls scarred for life.

The Royal Australian New Zealand College of Obstetricians will next month discuss backing “ritual nicks”, a modified form of genital mutilation.

What’s to discuss? Today’s editorial says it straight.

Should the U.S. be a safe haven from female genital mutilation?  Not according to the AAP. /RoP files
