Female Genital Mutilation

Last night I spent the evening with a dearest friend who has given up writing for T.V (Skins) amongst other things, in order to re-train as a Midwife.  She is a wonderful person who intends on taking her new vocation over to India, she dreams of setting up a modern birthing centre for the poor.  Listening to her talk about the training was so challenging for me, especially when we got onto the subject of female genital cutting, often known as female genital mutilation or female circumcision.  I was horrified.  I am including a link as I want you all to have the clearest understanding of what happens and I am not equipped to educate you.

Be encouraged because

My friend has to assist these young women who have been through this excruciating ordeal, to later on in their lives, give birth to their children.  It is horrendous.  To find out more please follow this link

Female genital cutting – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If God intended us male or female to be circumcised, He would have borne us that way. We are beautifully perfect just as we are born. We are made that way with His greatest Love and intention.

Please.  I Pray.

God have Mercy.

A warning, This is the latest most informative official video on the subject with Meryl Streep, parts of this video are disturbing and I had to stop watching.  It made me physically throw up.

Please help bring an end to this cruelly barbaric cutting.

  1. ……………… I’m happy to add the perspective of a Jewish Intactivist. There is a growing number of Jews of all denominations who are refusing to circumcision and instead doing alternative rituals that honor our religion without harming children.
