Female genital mutilation. What is your reaction to this topic?

Agree w Dr Sinclair. It's an awful practice. Female genital mutilation can lead to death, severe chronic pain, hemorrhage, urinary retention, urinary tract infections, keloid scars, strictures, fistula, incontinence, infertility, painful intercourse, painful periods, neuroma, recurrent infections, septicemia, transmission of hepatitis, tetanus, HIV & difficulty with childbirth. This doesn't address the emotional >.
Horrible. It is a barbaric practice that should never be done. The scars are physical, mental, emotional and permanent.
Abhorrent. This is an abhorrent practice and should be shunned in all societies/cultures.
