Save The Clits - April 21, 2009, 12:12 AM

Hey Guys,
So I'm doing a persuasive appeal project for a class, and my group's project is to do an appeal to congress to ban Female Genital Mutilation in all 50 states. Currently its only illegal in 16 states. This practice is prevalent in many African and Middle Eastern cultures and does not stop just because the people immigrated to the US.

I would greatly appreciate it if you guys could spend literally 10 seconds signing our online petition. If you want to add the state you are from in the comments section that would be fantastic as well. This is part of my grade so I need this badly.

I really appreciate guys, thanks in advance.

No, genital mutilation is pretty gross. I think it's more of a cultural thing in some African countries.

Research here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_genital_cutting
It's not designed to be pleasant..... at all..... add that to a third world country with little or no pain medicine, and you get a miserable experience.

Out ignorance I have to ask. Doesn't this fall under assault or abuse? If not is this a choice she is making? Like body modification? Again let's not flame me for asking question I am not trying to start something or being a troll. I find this to be a horrible thing but is something this women could go to a local police officer and say WTF? If this is a child this abuse should be reported buy her doctor or school or something.

they cant really go to the local police, their culture is very close knit. usually the young girls are forced to do it by their parents, and its usually done by a hackjob they call a doctor. its pretty sad really
