In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
