Michigan's Governor Signs Law Making Female Genital Mutilation a Felony



` Michigan Republican Gov. Rick Snyder signed legislation Tuesday making female genital mutilation a felony in Michigan.

Female genital mutilation, or FGM, is seen as a religious ritual in some Muslim communities and is practiced primarily in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. While the practice varies, it typically involves mutilating or removing portions of female genitalia in order to prevent sexual pleasure.

According to ABC News, female genital mutilation is a federal crime that carries a punishment of five years in prison. The new Michigan legislation makes the practice a felony punishable by 15 years in prison under state law. It also penalizes those who knowingly facilitate genital mutilation and increases the statute of limitations on the crime, allowing victims more time to seek damages.`

1. Good for him. He may be a Republican, but he did something right. FGM is barbaric and

disgusting and the only thing wrong with the bill he signed is that people who practice FGM should get a longer term than 15 years in prison and then, assuming that they're from outside the US, be deported.

2. Excellent law. Those victimized should be able to press charges for up to

10 years after they become 18 years old. And every adult evolved should be culpable. That should help with prosecuting this years down the road - cutting a deal with one to get the others prosecuted.

5. I just came from the national organization for women's website

 

And I don't see this mentioned. Is female genital mutilation good or bad for women? Sounds bad to me. I dont know why they werent involved.

We have i think the highest Muslim population in the country.

These people need to die in prison!! When I say these people I only mean the fucked up Muslim zealots who are Allah above all else!!

No you stupid goat herding backward bastards need to realize that men are not over women in this country!! If you can not grasp that then we need to deport your sorry fucking miserable backward ass to the hell hole you came from and not allow people like you on our soil!!!!

14. According to the mullahs, female genitale mutilation needs to be done to keep

women from acting " hypersexual "

From what I've seen of muslim men, they need to worry more about the muslim men being hypersexual.

Multiple wives, sex with under-age boys and they think nothing of raping women they see out in public.

Germany, the UK and Sweden are having a very difficult time with these men.
