Are you ready to write your congressman about this?

Mark Steyn writes, on National Review online:

Last week, the American Association of Pediatricians noted that certain, ahem, “immigrant communities” were shipping their daughters overseas to undergo “female genital mutilation.” So, in a spirit of multicultural compromise, they decided to amend their previous opposition to the practice: They’re not (for the moment) advocating full-scale clitoridectomies, but they are suggesting federal and state laws be changed to permit them to give a “ritual nick” to young girls.

Allahu akbar.


  1. Say, WHAT? Did I get that right? AMERICAN Pediatricians are suggesting that it might be ok to do this? We are living in truly scary times.


  2. Aren't they? Makes you want to quiz your MD to be sure he's not a part of this bunch.
