According to the New York Times, the American Academy of Pediatrics last week advocated that American doctors be allowed to stick girls’ clitorises with a needle so as to satisfy Muslim and African families’ demand for female genital mutilation: “It might be more effective if federal and state laws enabled pediatricians to reach out to families by offering a ritual nick as a possible compromise to avoid greater harm.”
Note that: “American doctors.” Follow the Benjamins. I wonder if this will be covered under Obamacare? More to the point, how is it covered under the Hippocratic Oath?
