    Gross. Assuming the Dr. is legit and board certified and all, instead of just jailing the doctor and wasting that human capital, why not kill two birds with one stone: Require the Dr. to work during the day on providing medical care to the homeless as a community service, and return to jail to spend the nights and to eat. Win-win.

    I bet 10 dollars that feminist/leftist publications don't write about his.

    It is an isolated case and has nothing to do with Islam.

    There's too much speculation and broad assumptions about what another group thinks. How many feminist/leftist publications do you read anyway?

    Now when do I collect the $10
    ?

    As for my opinion the doctor should be fined, jailed and stripped of her practice.

    Looks like the OP in that thread was calling it fake news (based on the third post).

    right because they think it is fine.
    this is usually a thing done in rural areas hard to even imagine a doctor in the us doing it. wonder if she charged for this service?

    Hopefully, the parents of these children will also be charged. They are far from innocent in this atrocity.

    Yeah. It's something not condoned in the west, but is required in other cultures. The families brought the girls to the doctor, as opposed to the doctor driving around in a white van kidnapping them. So the families as well as the doctor share some of the responsibility.

    I'll take some of that action. Just donate my $10 to the Mike Rowe Works Foundation.

    Globally, around 130 million women and girls are living with the effects from FGM and around 3 million undergo the procedure annually, according to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The practice, known to be performed in 29 countries and usually at the hands of midwives or physicians, involves cutting the external female genitalia for non-medical reasons. Depending on local customs, it could also include additional modifications ranging from cutting away part of the clitoris to removing the inner and outer vaginal lips before sewing the remaining skin together, leaving a small hole for urination and menstrual blood.

    The practice predates religion and has no religious significance in either Islam nor Christianity. However, communities of both faiths continue to circumcise their daughters, believing it will cleanse or purify the girl, ensure she remains sexually chaste, prevent cheating on her future husband and keep her behaving well.

    In the past year, FGM has come under greater scrutiny in the international community. In Egypt, where female circumcision is illegal, a doctor named Raslan Fadl was sentenced to two years in prison for manslaughter in January for performing an FGM operation that killed 13-year-old Sohair al-Batea in 2013. This was the country’s first FGM conviction. The U.K. also had its first-ever FGM trial this year, but Dr. Dhanuson Dharmasena, who was accused of illegally performing FGM on a woman in London days after she gave birth, was acquitted on Wednesday.

    Are you kidding me? How did you manage to miss all those women protest marches? We're one snowflake away from unwanted eye contact being categorized as sexual assault. What this doctor did is at least 5 notches above that.
