How ignorant these ‘Ivy League’ college students are is unbelievably SHOCKING.
Firebrand Pamela Geller’s organization, American Freedom Defense Initiative, released a video today that will make you rethink Columbia University as an option for your kids and grandkids.
AFDI reporter, Laura Loomer, went to the Columbia University campus and asked students:
‘Should Planned Parenthood fund clitoridectomy?’
They hear the words ‘Planned Parenthood’ and their brain shuts off.
Should they fund it?
Sure! After all, it’s ‘her body her choice’, right?
Female Genital Mutilation occurs mostly on children under the age of 15.
They don’t get to choose.
Also, Fun Fact: FGM is illegal in the United States.
FGC is against the law in the United States. The United States and many other countries consider FGC a violation of women’s rights and a form of child abuse. Federal law makes it a crime to perform FGC on a girl younger than 18 or to take or attempt to take a girl out of the United States for FGC. Girls and women who have experienced FGC are not at fault and have not broken any U.S. laws.
The United States considers FGC to be a serious human rights abuse and a form of gender-based violence and child abuse.18 Many girls have FGC forced on them and have no choice about whether it happens. It is painful and offers no health benefits. And FGC often causes long-term physical and mental health problems. For these reasons, the U.S. government works with other governments and organizations to help end the practice.
Even the uber-liberal United Nations World Health Organization thinks that Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is wrong.
From the WHO website:
FGM is recognized internationally as a violation of the human rights of girls and women. It reflects deep-rooted inequality between the sexes, and constitutes an extreme form of discrimination against women. It is nearly always carried out on minors and is a violation of the rights of children. The practice also violates a person’s rights to health, security and physical integrity, the right to be free from torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, and the right to life when the procedure results in death.
Female genital mutilation is classified into 4 major types.
Type 1: Often referred to as clitoridectomy, this is the partial or total removal of the clitoris (a small, sensitive and erectile part of the female genitals), and in very rare cases, only the prepuce (the fold of skin surrounding the clitoris).
Type 2: Often referred to as excision, this is the partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia minora (the inner folds of the vulva), with or without excision of the labia majora (the outer folds of skin of the vulva ).
Type 3: Often referred to as infibulation, this is the narrowing of the vaginal opening through the creation of a covering seal. The seal is formed by cutting and repositioning the labia minora, or labia majora, sometimes through stitching, with or without removal of the clitoris (clitoridectomy).
Type 4: This includes all other harmful procedures to the female genitalia for non-medical purposes, e.g. pricking, piercing, incising, scraping and cauterizing the genital area.
The question asked to students was if Planned Parenthood should fund ‘clitoridectomies’.
It’s shocking how many people don’t want to admit to their own ignorance and just say, ‘Yeah, that sounds good.’
They’re agreeing to the mutilation of girls for solely misogynistic reasons.
And they don’t even realize it.
They’re too busy dodging and weaving and trying to not be ‘intolerant’.
Some practices are vile and need to end.
It’s ok to be ‘intolerant’ of those things.
This is one of them.
