From Carolyn Moynihan at MercatorNet:
The US has its first federal prosecution. Britain after 30 years has no convictions. –
In Britain, where there must be a proportionally larger at risk population and where FGM was outlawed in 1985, there have been no convictions at all to date, although hospitals report an average of 15 cases a day discovered by midwives or maternity doctors. There has been one disastrous prosecution of a doctor that ended in his acquittal. Why this total impotence of the law before a heinous practice that violates the right of minor girls to bodily integrity and attacks the — otherwise fiercely defended — right of a woman to autonomy over her own body? One reason surely is that racial and other cultural minorities have become a sacred cow, including within the feminist movement. That, presumably, is why millions of people can turn out for a women’s march to protect free contraception and a liberal abortion regime, but not to protect minority girls from customary forms of grievous bodily harm – even with a Muslim co-chair.More.
Reality check: The silence is easy to understand. Feminists are only concerned about women’s issues when they spell out ABORTION. Mutilating little girls is neutral as to that. And aborting child because she is a girl is positive. So is honour killing. They are merely “cultural” mutilations and deaths.
Remember that when anyone praises a woman for being a “feminist.” They are praising her for promoting and celebrating the deaths of children, period, end stop.
