Female genital mutilation is also a US issue

Jumana Nagarwala, a 44-year-old emergency room doctor at a Detroit hospital, was denied bail earlier this week and remains in custody, awaiting trial, charged with performing female genital mutilation (FGM) in the United States -- which happens here more often than you think.

Based at Henry Ford Hospital in Michigan, Dr. Nagarwala is an American-born citizen. The FBI claims she has performed FGM in the last few months on two 7-year-old girls, and that she may have been active for over a decade at her clinic in Livonia, a Detroit suburb.

According to authorities, medical examinations and interviews verify that the two girls had undergone FGM and that one girl was told that she would be "getting the germs out." A second doctor and his wife have also been arrested; according to local news reports, Nagarwala has denied performing FGM and her lawyer has said she merely performed a religious procedure. The parents have not been charged.

What about making female and male genital mutilation US issues? Though the effect of the first is much worse, the principle of preventing people's bodies being mucked about without their consent needs establishing.
