What Does Obama Have to Say About Female Genital Mutilation in Kenya? | January 19, 2009


Nothing, as far as I can tell.

In case you aren’t familar with female genital mutilation, it is a barbarous practice sometimes called “female circumcision” whereby parts of young girls’ genitalia are removed. It is unnecessary, cruel, and often performed under unsanitary conditions leading to all kinds of horrid complications. It is widely practiced in Kenya.

You’d think a father of two girls would have something to say about it, especially as he is an enormously popular and influential figure in Kenya. Just a simple statement would almost certainly be enough to save at least a few children from this dreadful form of child abuse.

Just for the heck of it, here’s what Hillary has to say about it.
