American Academy of Pediatrics comes out in favor of child abuse

…because if we torture Muslim girls a little bit, it will keep their parents from taking them overseas to be tortured worse.

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?
