This is what some people who have signed my petition demanding firm action against Female Genital Mutilation are saying. There are hundreds of wonderful comments on the petition page, I am sharing these today.
“FGM is a barbaric, dangerous and cruel practice that must be ended for ever, NOW.”
“FGM should be brought to an END”
“FGM is, quite simply, an abhorrent denial of basic human rights – however it is perceived and explained, it must stop. Thank you.”
“Educate all citizens, empower those at risk, and end FGM”
“It’s the 21st Century… it’s time this unnecessary cruelty was put a stop to.”
“The ritual is absolutely inhumane (unnatural, disrespectful to our mother/father creator’s creation of the female body which was created w/ perfect purpose). The act is oppressive, horrific to any child’s emotional and psychological [mental] health, and is an underhanded tactic to mold/structure from a baby, a diminished self-esteem in young girl’s by the time they reach adolescence. I know for a FACT and with good reason that this unnecessary and unproductive ritual is definitely resulting from East Africa and the Mid Sib-Saharan government’s conscious or unconscious unmet needs due to poverty, stemming from a lack of resources, embezzlement of government funds (government fraud), with the root cause being unjust [government] leadership and spiritual ignorance. U.S. Person’s of Power w/ public leadership status (e.g. Oprah Winfrey) or somebody w/powerful [amicable (peacemaking) and negotiation] leadership abilities from the U.S. needs to step up and intervene to eradicate this barbaric, senseless, uncivilized act of despondence and hate presenting itself as self-hatred and self-mutilation…”
