Against all odds, the United Nations recently made a proclamation that tosses aside “cultural sensitivities” with regard to one of the most disgusting practices occurring in the world today - female circumcision, a.k.a., female genital mutilation or FGM for short.
The U.N. now rightly labels this odious practice a form of child abuse and wants to see it ended immediately.
Watch as I explain why the “ending immediately” part is easier said than done amid warning signs that certain progressives in the West are apologists for this abhorrent surgery, lest we offend those who still embrace this barbarism.
The biggest danger in the West when dealing with an atrocity like FGM is the “cultural sensitivities” argument.
FGM is illegal in Canada now but if progressives get their way,FGM won't be condemned as barbaric but rather, redefined as a culturally-sensitive medical procedure that should be funded under the Canada Health Act.
