A Law Against Female Genital Mutilation

Hartford Courant

An important bill died in the legislature this year, “An Act Prohibiting Female Genital Mutilation.” Senate Bill 190 would have made it a Class D felony, punishable by up to five years in prison, to perform female genital mutilation on a person under 18.

FGM is outlawed federally, and 26 other states in the United States also ban it. Connecticut needs to join them to put this terrible practice on the radar of schools, clinics, courts and police. Connecticut lawmakers need a zero-tolerance law banning FGM to protect young women and girls.  

FGM is a barbaric procedure, affecting up to 140 million women and girls worldwide. Alarmingly, the Population Reference Bureau indicates that 2,658 women and girls are at risk in Connecticut.

FGM is a human rights violation and a terrible crime against girls and women. The time is now to prevent FGM and stand with victims.

    I, as a male, have asked my mother what she found so deformed about my pen15 that she chose to have elective surgery performed on it as a helpless non-consenting infant. No good answer that wasn’t provided by and backed up the chosenites has ever been given to me.

    I am still a little bit pissed about that.

    Stop performing ritualistic genital mutilation on males OR females! Period! It’s F’d up and if your “god” commands it, he is only advocating the suffering of children and mutilation of Nature and/or God’s Creation.

      I hear ya, Martist. Too bad we weren’t yet awake enough to not buy what they were selling.

      Child abuse has so many disguises.

    I would really like my foreskin back.

    MY MOM TOLD THIS ON MY DAD…
    AFTER I WAS BORN, THE DOCTOR TRIED TO SELL DAD ON HAVING ME “CUT”.
    DAD TOLD HIM,
    “IF YOU CUT MY SON, I’LL CUT YOUR DAMN THROAT”.
