The UN considers female circumcision torture. Human rights activists worldwide see it as a major women’s rights violation and a broader debate is needed, says Thomas Von Der Osten-Sacken from human rights NGO – WADI.
RESPONSE TO "RESOLVE IT." The people doing this have already been mutilated. They are the older women doing this to their own girls. This is a cultural mutilation enforced by the men, predominan tly Muslims, and women are TOLD they are elevated to a high status, while they are beaten, mutilated, subjugated and tortured in the name of a false god religion and its bloody practices. It will never stop because they are taking over the world by force.
This should not be a problem to solve. Anyone involved in mutulation of a female's genitals should be sentenced to have their own genitals totally removed. This should stop this practice in it's tracks. Those involved will have a change of heart once their own genitals are renoved as a consequence.
It beggars belief to think this practice still go`s on. Makes you wonder what Century we are liveing in.?
