You know as screwed up and sick this doctor is...He would NEVER be able to do such a thing if the parents didnt allow it......
Why is no social worker looking into why a parent would allow such a thing to happen to thier kids???
SICK! SICK! SICK!

I'm sure he's spinning it as "Medically necessary" or something.

If you did this on a full grown woman it would be sexual assault. Why it is okay on CHILDREN????

Hello!

I realize this is likely sending people straight into a blind rage but we cannot have name calling. If you have called names please edit.


I can't think of any response to this thread that isn't a UAV.

Its called Female Genital Cutting or Female Genital Mutilation. Its done alot in Africa and in some muslim countries so that the girl doesn't enjoy sex and won't stray. The media is finally noticing that docs here will do it for the parents as well.

sigh....

All I can think of is how traumatized my super reserved 6yo daughter would be. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v5...t=IMG_0910.jpg I doubt she'd ever speak again.

Genital mutilation AND sexual abuse.

Wait, ...what? So it's illegal when it's for religious reasons, but NOT if it's for cosmetic ones?

Huh?

Who's fault is it really though? It's the parents, because they let him. I find that much worse. Who would let something like this be done to their child ? Who would even APPROVE that it was ok to do? And what kind of medical associations even give approval for this sort of thing? Not just the genital cutting, but of the "stimulation" issue? I just don't understand it, I cannot comprehend the kinds of people that do these things and let them happen.

my daughter is five and a half and i could cheerfully take a hatchet to the skull of a doctor who did this to my child. not that it would ever happen because there is no way on earth i would ever consent to it, but still. what is broken in our society and world when the parenting instinct to PROTECT OUR CHILDREN doesn't kick in when a doctor suggests something this sick and insane?

Dear God. I can't believe the parents consented.

Here's another article about it. It includes a link to the actual study, for those as disbelieving as I was.

Sick.
