FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION IS STILL BEING PRACTICED,HELP STOP THIS BARBARIC ACT.

FGM violates the rights of children as it is performed on girls between the age of 0-15 for reasons that can be religious,cultural or sanitary. 28 African countries perform this inhumane and degrading practice that is done under lack of hygiene, absence of medical staff and lack of anesthesia does not only bring the risk of bleeding to death or infections but HIV and AIDS too due to sharing of this tools. LETS HELP STOP THIS ACT ON OUR LITTLE GIRLS AND WOMEN.

    I’ve heard about this before from friends but what exactly is the reason why people still practice this? Is it supposed to be like a female equivalent of castration?

      Cai not really for castration but they do it to girls to avoid premarital sex and control their libido. Some communities completely cut all the genitals and sew the girl leaving a very small opening just for urination. These young girls not only have painful sex in the future but complications during childbirth . some practise for religious reasons and a right of passage to differentiate girls from women.
