The American Academy of Pediatrics is advocating for female genital mutilation.
Yes, you read that correct. The AAP has issued a statement stating that they approve of inflicting “token” injury upon girls in order to placate those in America whose culture calls for shredding the clitoris of small girls by use of whatever sharp instrument is at hand (shard of glass, for example).
Words fail me.
I cannot believe that any reputable doctor anywhere in America would voluntarily take a scalpel and nick a young girl’s genitals to please the bloodthirsty, barbarian, mindless culture that demands that women have their sexual enjoyment lessened or removed.
This is one more example of groups allowing human rights to be eroded for their convenience or financial gain.
