good point... and if that girl was still in her country of origin, there wouldnt be anyone sticking up for her rights either. Too bad its too late for her. I can only imageine the phycological damage. I am SO GLAD my baby boy is intact. His father almost talked me into having it done, but in the end he left it up to me. Now Dad is co-sleeping, cloth diapering and responding to every cry!!!
I wonder if someday it will change and circs wont be the norm in America? Its so childish of me to say it, but "Its just stupid!"
The double standard is horrible...but atleast we as a culture are startting to have open dialogue.
If FGM was a western held value, believed by Victorian Europeans to be beneficial, this man would be on trial for not having it done in a hospital. Because it is different, and new to us it's easier for us to see how wrong it is.
