Tamara Beckstrand started this petition to Senator Tim Kaine

Dear Senator Kaine,

I remember the first time I read an account of a young girl experiencing FGM.  I was so horrified I couldn't talk about it for several days.

I thought that it was a problem that existed only in far away countries perhaps not as developed as ours.

I was wrong.

This barbaric and misogynistic practice is taking place right here in our own state. Please get behind an effort to ban this horror so that not one more young girl will be victimized!  FGM causes life long suffering and physical repercussions that effect every aspect of a woman's life - not to mention the mental agony from the trauma of being cut.

Thanks,

Tamara Beckstrand
