DETROIT – The U.S. Justice Department said a federal ban on genital mutilation should be rewritten to protect it from constitutional challenges after a judge in Detroit threw out charges against members of a Muslim sect.

The government recently withdrew an appeal of a decision by U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman in the first such federal prosecution in the country. In a letter Wednesday to Congress, Solicitor General Noel Francisco called genital mutilation an “especially heinous practice” but said the law needs to be changed to mesh with U.S. Supreme Court precedent.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that half a million women and girls in the United States have already suffered FGM or are at risk for being subjected to FGM in the future,” Francisco said.

    After listening to a testimony of a woman who had her vagina mutilated when she was 13 years old because of some archaic barbaric “custom” of fundamental Islam, I claim this to be the 2nd most important human rights issue of the U.S. today (500,000 in this country??) They are claiming it’s unconstitutional to ban it? What because you can’t see the deformity and scarring? What if a religious cult decides its “customary” to cut the nose and ears off of their children.. would they still cling onto the belief that “all religions are the same and practices are protected”? No! This is madness. When there are no health benefits and only life long pain and suffering it’s time to call a spade a spade. This is brutal abuse and mutilation of children. It is NOT a protected custom – they’re likely being paid by CAIR!

    Again this ugly Snake raises its Head, this FGM is Barbaric and the numbers are low I’m sure to what is happening now where these sick invaders are.
    This should of never been dismissed and it’s very concerning at where the country is heading.
    Islam is Barbaric and Evil and has no place in our society.

    Barbarians . As simple as that. These MEN that make this rule so they can have a tight sexual experience are sickening. That’s the only reason for this procedure and you know it, it causes infection, severe pain , hemorrhage and death for the girls throughout their life.
