My daughter covered this practice while working at World Vision years ago, explaining in detail what these innocent young girls go through. It’s extremely cruel and barbaric, and the girls suffer immensely afterwards, not only from the effects of the practice, but severe after effects. In this so called modern day, it should be against the law.

We must all be part of protecting our women and girls from this gross violation of their human rights.

This procedure goes far beyond ‘aggravated assault’. To watch and listen to a young woman’s account of the torture she endured as a child and the horrors and nightmares her life has been as a result, to be ostracized by a community and family for opposing the practice, this is clearly child abuse and very much a human rights issue. Canadians believe their government heads and representatives will be the voice and policy setters on human rights to protect ALL our citizens and residents. Please act on this Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. As our leader, it is your elected duty and we expect this of you, we all believe ALL children need to be protected.

Thanks for adding your voice.

This archaic, dangerous and degrading practise must cease. It is unecessary and fashioned to disempower women. Please speak out and act now to end Female Genital Mutilation.
