Criminal mutilation: Every sane doctor feels the same way. We would report any known perpetrator to the police. Also to the state mediacal board if a doctor was the one who performed a fgc, and doctor would immediately lose their license to practice.

Awful: Some ancient traditions are hard to stop. Female genital cutting is a barbaric, awful and potentially life threatening act used to control women. It involves removing the clitoris and some or all of the vulva without local anesthesia. It should never be done.
