An Irish court has found a couple guilty of having someone pop by and perform FGM on their one year old. The child practically died; the act was only discovered because the parents were good enough to take her to an emergency room rather than allowing her to bleed to death.

Now we will see whether Irish justice has the will to send them both to prison (the father may soon be deported; but let’s hold off on that until he has served a sentence), and to find a non-depraved family to raise the child.

    It took 3+ years to have a trial?

    tp: One can only hope they’ll imprison them a bit more speedily. And after the husband has served his time, his deportation should happen quickly.

    These cases are incredibly important, I think, and should be given maximum publicity, because a process of education in – uh – diversity needs to happen. The curious folkways of the west involve not gutting our baby girls.
