92% of Married Women in Egypt Have Undergone Female Genital Mutilation

Egypt’s Minister of Health Adel Adawy announced on Sunday that 92 percent of married Egyptian women have experienced female genital mutilation.

The latest results were announced at a conference held to reveal the results of the 2014 Egypt Demographic and Health Survey (EDHS).

According to the Minister, 92 percent of women aged between 15 and 49 who are or have been married suffer from genital mutilation.

The majority of females undergo genital mutilation between the ages of nine and 12, with only 31 percent of the operations run by doctors, said the Minister of Health.

The Minister of Health added that FGM in rural areas is as high as 95 percent, compared to up to 39.2 percent in urban cities.

    One approach to ending Muslim immigration would be a policy of no immigrants from nations having an FGM rate of say, 40 percent or above as determined by the WHO. It would be a start.

    • Not a bad idea.

        Clearly a culture of headchopping doesn’t bother liberal governments.

    One of the many joys of islam. Strange how you never hear about this from Western feminists. I guess they are too busy killing unborn babies. Funny old world isn’t it.

      You are right bro,and in China and India ,couples go to a clinic when the female is pregnant and if it is a female baby they abort her.

    I wonder how long it will be until FGM has to be covered by provincial medical. Celebrate diversity and all that.

    Oh those Muslims. Whaddya gonna do?

  • BillyHW

    This has nothing to do with Islam, it’s a Mediterranean thing you see…

    As usual, much obfuscation by muslims of the procedure’s regional variations which can vary from innocuous to horrific and can be the cause of life threatening giving birth complications and to phrase it delicately, “loss of previous quality of life.” Also helps transmit AIDS better in heterosexual intercourse because of certain desired side effects.

  • It’s time to do the same thing to Islamist “men”.

    Start with the imams.

    There is a solution, but it must not admitted in print.

    • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

      what that will be miss?

  • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

    Society is becoming more confused every decade or century that goes by,real love between humans is becoming like treasure , very rare to find it.

      I was pretty polite to the lady who cut my hair yesterday.

    This is complete insanity. What could be more enjoyable than feeling your wife having a series of orgasms ending with your own?
