We’ve written on several other occasions about female genital mutilation but not lately, so when I saw this blog with a lengthy detailed article (including lots of links so readers could delve into the topic further) I decided it was time for a refresher on FGM.
There has been a huge increase in the numbers of women in France seeking plastic surgery. These women are not looking for face lifts, liposuction or breast enhancement – they are looking to have their sexual organs reconstructed after having been circumcized in primarily Islamic countries. Unfortunately, this also indicates that female genital castration is still occurring. One suspects that this surge in genital reconstructive surgery is also found in other western nations with high immigration from Islamic countries.
“In recent years around 2,800 women who immigrated to France from Africa or second generation immigrants, of the age group between 18 and 50, have turned to hospitals and centres in Paris and Nantes funded by national welfare to have their genitals reconstructed, devastated by the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM).”
We have heard that FGM is increasing in the US, but I don’t know if anyone is yet seeking surgery.
