A Civilized Nation?

Typically, when we read about horrors of humanity, they occur in distant, third-world countries. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. There is now a trend in the UK of female genital mutilation.

How is it possible that such a progressive, civilized country would not work harder to stop this? While it certainly is a tight spot for parents that come from such a culture to be in, it is not right. This is not a gray area. It's black and white, right and wrong. Female genital mutilation is wrong.

It is my hope that the US never follows suit.
