With the influx of immigrants from Muslim countries comes the influx of their culture and religious traditions.
However, some of these traditions should be left behind in their countries of origin. Among Islam’s more barbaric traditions is that of female circumcision.
This act is illegal on American soil for obvious reasons, and yet Muslim doctors and parents have been caught performing the surgery on young girls across the country. Two such doctors are currently awaiting trial for their role in mutilating the genitals of two 7-year-old girls.
Unfortunately, liberals are fighting to set them free.
New numbers from the CDC are now painting an even grimmer picture of just how severe this crisis is in the US.
From The Daily Wire:
[T]he CDC posits that as many as 513,000 girls and women, primarily in New York, Washington D.C. and Minneapolis, are at risk of that brutality as the girls and women hail from Muslim countries.
The CDC states that the massive increase in the monstrous practice of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) is “wholly a result of rapid growth in the number of immigrants from FGM/C-practicing countries living in the United States.” Virtually all of the countries listed by the CDC were dominated by Muslims.
Information on the largest Muslim nation, Indonesia, wasn’t available until after the CDC had compiled their report. Howard Goldberg, a CDC researcher, stated that after investigating the matter, “FGM was much more common in Indonesia than had been thought.”
Many followers of Islam continue to defend this heinous practice by claiming that female genital mutilation may have health benefits similar to male circumcision.
But critics say that this is a lie and that the real purpose behind FGM is to make sexual intercourse unenjoyable for women, so that they won’t be “tempted” by sex outside of marriage.
Opponents assert that FGM is all about control, not good health.
The United States must have a zero tolerance policy for those caught committing this crime.
Young Muslim girls around the world are at risk of being maimed for life, and America must be steadfast in standing against such an evil act. Our commitment to defending the defenseless is what makes us an exceptional nation.
