1,700 female genital mutilation victims since April, Over 140,000 Victims in the UK
1700 cases in last six months treated by the NHS, but no worries, the evil clown Reza Aslan says FGM is a Christian African problem. And that’s only who they are treating, lord knows the actual number.
140,000 of overwhelmingly Muslim victims of FGM are living in the UK, living with the aftereffects of FGM across England and Wales. Of these women, 10,000 are under 15 years of age. 50,000 are over 50. Most of the women are thought to have migrated to Britain from Muslim counties where the practice of cutting girls’ genitalia is still widespread.
Back in July, UK Prime Minister David Cameron attended a summit with some 500 delegates from 50 countries — including survivors of the practice, heads of state and front line professionals in London.
However, although FGM is illegal in the UK, young girls born in Britain also live with the threat of FGM with an estimated 20,000 at risk of cutting each year.
Last year the Government’s forced marriage unit gave advice in more than 1,300 cases.
Theresa May, the Home Secretary, writing for The Telegraph’s website said it is “heart breaking” that the “hidden crimes” of FGM and forced marriage still exist in society and still threaten the next generation of girls.
Yes, Theresa May is so concerned that she barred Robert Spencer and me from the UK so that such things would not be discussed in a candid manner.
Among the measures that were discussed at the summit are new laws enabling police to prosecute parents if they fail to prevent their daughter being cut. Victims will also be granted lifelong anonymity from the time an allegation of FGM is made.
At least 1,700 new cases — we see what a difference it has made.
The more Muslims immigrate to Western countries, the more clitordectomies will become horrifyingly commonplace.
Back in 2010, I reportedthat here in America, the Academy of Pediatrics suggested that American doctors be given permission to perform a “nick” on girls from Islamic cultures. The norming of savagery. Because of our opposition to their “well-intentioned” abomination, the Academy of Pediatrics withdraw its “2010 Policy Statement on Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) that Endorsed Pediatricians’ ‘Nicking’ of Girls’ Genitalia.”
They were unsuccessful with that outrageous defense, but as the norming of the sharia becomes more commonplace in the West, that kind of cultural equivocation will be sanctioned.
Dissemblers and deceivers claim that FGM is cultural phenomenon, not religious. But the fact is that it is an Islamic cultural phenomenon.
Justine Greening, the Development secretary said that forcing girls to marry against their will or subjecting them to FGM is “not just a tragedy for her, it’s a disaster for development.
“Child and forced marriage and female genital mutilation rob girls of a childhood and the chance to reach their full potential.”
Globally, more than 130 million girls and women have experienced some form of FGM/C, according to new UNICEF data and experts warn up to 63 million more could be cut by 2050, even with current declining rates, because of high population growth.(more…)
It’s Islamic – an non-Muslims living in these Islamic cultures are victimized as well.

More than 1,700 women and girls subject to female genital mutilation (FGM) have been treated by UK health services since April, when hospitals in England were told to begin recording instances of the illegal practice.
In the last six months, 1,746 FGM cases were identified in English hospitals, according to figures released on Thursday by the Health and Social Care Information Centre.
In September alone, there were 467 new cases.
“Having accurate data about this crime is an important step in helping prevent its occurrence in the future,” said HSCIC chair Kingsley Manning.
“The information will support the Department of Health in their FGM prevention program, and we hope to expand the dataset over time so that it provides a more complete picture across a wider variety of care settings.”
In July this year, Home Secretary Theresa May said more than 100,000 women in the UK are living with the consequences of FGM, and 60,000 girls are at risk.
That same month, the government launched a £1.4 million program to tackle FGM, including plans to prosecute parents who allowed their daughters to be cut.
FGM is a practice in
which some or all of the female genital tissue is removed, in some cases without anesthesia.
Public Health Minister Jane Ellison told the Guardian the figures were “a major milestone on the road to ending FGM in one generation” in the UK. “This data will help us care for women who have had FGM, and prevent more girls from having to suffer this traumatic experience,” she added.
In February, a Guardian-backed petition on Change.org, launched by 17-year-old schoolgirl Fahma Mohamed, called for more information about FGM to be taught at schools.
More than 230,000 people signed the petition, which also won the backing of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.
