UK: Teachers and health workers will be legally required to report FGM under new law

Teachers and health workers will be legally required to report cases of female genital mutilation, under plans being launched by the Government this week.

One year on the from the Girl Summit hosted by David Cameron and Unicef in London to mobilise international efforts to curb FGM within a generation, the Home Office will launch a consultation on mandatory reporting of known cases of the practice in girls under 18. The legal requirement will cover schools and hospitals and will be introduced in the autumn.

    FGM has been a criminal offence in the UK since 1985. Until 2014 no charge was brought, and there still haven’t been any convictions.
    Meanwhile, human rights organizations are more interested in getting cement into Gaza.

    If you are going to be bask in the strength giving diversity of multiculturalism you have to accept that certain people are filthy savages, and they are going to do what they are going to do. Why should we act as white nights for these people? It’s part of their culture. If they want to change it it’s up to them to change it.

      The problem is the huge number of NHS beds filled with women who are in hospital to have ‘repairs” for their cultural practises and wards full of women who have very difficult births and are long term patients due to the vast amount of surgery needed after the trauma of giving birth. They would be dead in their own countries. The National Health Service cannot afford to be dealing with this wave of other people’ cultural practises so trying to illegalise it is the only way they can try and bring the numbers down. Apart from helping these innocent young girls fro the horrific trauma of circumcision or the even worse FGM.

      The Muslims are a huge drain on the NHS – look at the huge number of children born of cousin marriages, especially in the North, families who keep on having more children after the first one is genetically compromised. One family of the Channel 4 “Dispatches” doco had six. All blind before their teenage years, the eldest boy had lost all muscle coordination – a very large lump of a thing who had his own personal 24/7 carer (a little English slip of a girl) who was about to leave because his growing mental aberrations were putting her in danger. The younger blind girls were sitting round a table being fed by mum and other non muslim health carers. The only child still unaffected for the moment by the bad genetics was the toddler who had also been diagnosed with the same future. As the eldest boy was 20 they had been advised after the second and third children (also affected) that every child they had would be disabled as well – but no – on they go hoping for one that might be perfect when they have been told that this will never happen.
      Twenty years of having children you know are going to be disabled is appalling – but what can you do? The answer is obvious but the human rights laws make it impossible and the parents didn’t really seem to care. After all, it is the taxpayer looking after their kids that the parents rake in the child benefits whilst living in a specially adapted council house. In only a few years there children will all be dead and they will be on their own but both on the old age pension!
      Ten or so years ago it became public that it cost each muslim disabled child 250,000 sterling to care for annually compared to 80,000 sterling for a
      diabetic Horrific financially, isn’t it?

      And these children are not as bad as some even sadder horribly disfigured children born to others in this community. Of course, had it happened in their homeland, away from the sterile wards of a UK hospital somehow those children would never have survived for even a few minutes after birth. Quietly dealt with in the traditional manner they would never even had a proper burial.

        I don’t disagree with what you say, but the countries politicians signed them up for multiculturalism, and multiculturalism is what they got.

        If I ran the world they would have never got into this situation in the first place. They chose it, they get to live with the consequences. Part of their mantra is “all cultures are equal” and “who are we to judge”. Many people warned them where this was going to lead, it’s time to suck it up and live with the consequences of your really bad decisions. It’s not liked they learned their lesson is it.

    Well that’s nonsense because no one wants to be killed for snitching.

    3rd world immigration = importing barbarity.
