(WXYZ) – The Northville doctor at the center of a federal and state investigation regarding female genital mutilation of young girls is expected to be back in court today.
This time, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala’s fitness as a mother is being challenged. Dr. Nagarwala has already lost her job and now she could lose her children.
Dr. Nagarwala was fired from Henry Ford Health Systems after being arrested on April 10 for allegedly performing genital mutilation on two 7-year-old girls brought from Minnesota for the procedure. FGM is a religious practice condemned around the world and considered child abuse here in the United States.
