LINK Justice Dept. Declines to Defend Law Against Female Circumcision, Citing Flaws

Willam Barr's DOJ. They're almost forced not to defend it, because it infringes on "religious freedom"; any curtailment there would be an impediment to they're imposing Christian Sharia on the country.

And if your culture/religion prescribed cutting off the nose, would that then be okay? With anyone?

Abuse and often Child abuse because of the age when it is performed.

At least they got something right. It's not much, but something.

What? "The Justice Department told a lawmaker this week that it had stopped defending a federal prohibition on female genital mutilation... ." Meaning FGM is now essentially allowed.


What a disgrace.

Screw religious and cultural opinion the forced mutilation of genitalia simply must stop ? happening to anyone. When they grow up they can do anything they want to their private parts, but we call them private for a reason, perhaps it’s time to really embrace the full meaning of ”private”
Sure there’s medical exceptions but do I actually have to spell out that difference?

That is totally bizarre. What has interstate commerce to do with FGM. Actually it is more of a cultural practice than a religious one.
