Egypt formally bans Female Circumcision

category international | gender and sexuality | news report author Thursday June 28, 2007 20:31author by ribbid Report this post to the editors

A 2005 UNICEF report suggested 97%of Egyptian women between ages 15 and 49 had undergone some type of genital mutilation or circumcision. Last week ago Bodur Ahmed Shaker an 11 year old girl died after undergoing the operation at a private clinic in Minya province in the south of the state. Doctors at the clinic had suggested her death was due to a a heavy dose of anaesthetic and her operation is believed to have been a result of her parents wish to preserve her chastity..,

Since then the Egyptian establishment has moved to close a final loop-hole in their legislation which had allowed a practise which has been common since Pharonic times to continue. The change to the law announced this afternoon followed statements on Islamic theology from the state mufti (supporting the end to this barbaric practice and reminding all it has no scriptural basis in either Quran or Talmud [old testament] )
