Wales is opening its first female genital mutilation (FGM) clinic to provide medical and psychological help for victims of the abhorrent practice.
It’s estimated that 2,000 women and girls in Wales live with FGM.
FGM is often carried out for religious and cultural reasons, usually associated with Islam. In some sects of Islam, FGM is mandatory. It is promoted by the Ulema Council in Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim-majority country by population.
According to The Independent, one FGM case is reported every hour in the U.K.
The practice has been illegal in the United Kingdom since 1985, but British authorities have failed to bring forth one successful prosecution. In 2014, the first FGM clinic opened in London, and four more clinics have opened since then.
In Wales alone, 123 victims were treated for FGM in 2016 – with 44 of the victims being children under 18.
In case you were wondering what the concerns of the U.K. police were, they made them abundantly clear this past February. A discussion about FGM led to the authorities responding by denouncing “Islamophobic” abuse. It appears that British authorities are more keen on quashing supposed “Islamophobia” than they are prosecuting people for this vile crime.
In the U.S., however, Jumana Nagarwala, an emergency room physician in Detroit, was arrested after performing FGM on girls between the ages of six and eight.
There is an argument to be made that these FGM treatment centers opening in Wales and across the U.K. could be used as a cover to perform the heinous operation, similar to what occurred in Detroit, rather than to treat victims of the practice.
For years, FGM operations were performed in the U.S. without scrutiny. As unfettered immigration drowns the United Kingdom and Europe, proper attention should be paid to FGM centers to be sure that these scarring operations are not going on in a so-called First-World country under the noses of authorities.
Notably, a 2014 poll found that most citizens in Wales believe that tighter rules are needed for immigration. 41% of those surveyed said they believe that immigration has harmed the Welsh economy.
68% said migration from outside the EU needed to be stopped entirely.
As usual, it’s the political elite that is pushing for the entry of migrants to Europe. On the topic of Female Genital Mutilation and the trauma inflicted upon the victims at such a young age, the ruling class is forcing open borders and migrants upon the innocent citizens and children of these nations, who must ask themselves if the cost is worth the outcome. Resoundingly, as more and more migrants enter Europe and force the West to become more like the Islamic societies these migrants “fled” from, the answer is no.
