Proxy raised the issue of FGM a while back on OLO, but now it seems our doctors are to discuss performing a ritual 'nick' leagally in the hope of reducing the incidence.

This is step one in legalising FGM.

We have laws against FGM, in all states. What the good doctors should be discussing is how to presure the governments and our spineless politicians into enforcing those laws.

Not one person has been prosecuted, yet the evidence is available.

Because of 'cultural considerations' we have tried education, which has cost millions and failed.

Little Aussie girls should not have to endure this torture and it is well past time that we insisted that prosecutions take place, with serious penalties. Our governments are a joke!

Hi Banjo.. I think the 'nick' is actually the removal of the clitorus.
(correct me anyone if I'm wrong)

But.. Banj...welcome to the world of double speak :)

"He is a terrorist"...no.."He is a freedom fighter"

"She is a country shopper"..no.."She is a persecuted victom of evil"

"I and my ideological bedfellows are going to take over the world"

No..we are just going to have a "Global framework of governance"

Andy Stern.. SEIU union boss and communist, had 22 visits to the white house. He says "We are trying to use the power of persuasion.. and if that doesn't work we will use the persuasion of POWER"!

FGM.. "a little nick" it's all about language.

The US union pension bailout (shifting unsustainable pension debt onto taxpayers) is now called the "Create Jobs and Save Benefits Act of 2010.

AGiR,
I understand that a 'nick' can be performed two ways.

1) A needle is inserted into the tip of the clitoris until it bleeds.

or

2) A small section is removed from the tip of the clitoris.

Because of the nerves in the clitoris, either would be very painful, something akin to hitting ones finger with a hammer.

Neither is acceptable and is against the law in Aus.

This really is the first step in legalising FGM and should not be contemplated at all.

We actually need people to tell our governments to get some spine and start prosecuting the parents of these little girls. Further, we need to stop immigrating people of those cultures that practice FGM.

We have now reached the point where women who had FGM done to them here in Aus, are now getting it done to their own daughters. Such is the entrenchment of the practice.

Newcomers of the same culture 'refresh' the practice so we are losing the battle to eliminate it.

Banjo: The way I read it was the doctors are realising just how widespread the practice is getting.
So far, not one parent has been prosecuted. WHY?
Is it because the dept of heath (hospitals) are just too PC?

What about the rights of the little girls?

Is it possible that FGM can become an election issue along with the boat people?

abby,
I have trouble getting figures as the governments are not keen to gather stats relating to the incidence of alien cultural practices, such as FGM and forced marriages. The politicians prefer to ignore such issues.

The last time I asked the NSW Health Minister why no one has been charged, the reply was 'that there are cultural considerations' and no, I do not understand that.

Few seem interested in the rights of the little girls so I do not think it will be an election issue. Perhaps if one or two girls die from shock, bleeding or infection, law enforcement may follow.
