There will be more and more of this in Western countries in the future, as immigrants from Islamic countries continue to flow in. “Girls mutilated for ‘tradition,'” from The Sunday Telegraph:
AT least 50 women who have undergone painful and illegal female circumcision have been treated at two Sydney hospitals in the past year.
Health workers fear a new generation of Australian-born girls are being forced to undergo the painful procedure by their migrant families to comply with cultural traditions.
Obstetricians and gynaecologists at Auburn Hospital have treated 38 patients with female circumcisions over the past year.
Canterbury Hospital also treats between 10 and 15 such patients a year.
All say they had the procedure done overseas but there are fears many more Australian women have undergone female genital mutilation (FGM) because it is unreported to authorities.
