WHO Warns, Female Mutilation Is Risky And Cruel

Female genital mutilation in females creates more complications in childbirth and infant mortality rate, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned.

Caesareans and death rate of babies rise upto 50 per cent, in women who have had the procedure, a report says. //About 30,000 African women from Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal and Sudan participated in the study.

A report on long-term health consequences of female genital mutilation (FGM) says, ‘In many parts of Africa this was being followed, as believed to give honour to girls’.

Even performed by trained medical personnel, Joy Phumaphi, the WHO assistant director-general for family and community health explains it has to be stopped and it is against human rights.

Egyptian doctor and Professor Munir Falsi denies that whether type 1 FGM (where the clitoris is removed), type 2 FGM (where the clitoris and surrounding labia are removed) or type 3 FGM (where the clitoris and labia are removed), he calls it as a cruel and regrettable act.
