Should we allow this to continue? Over 200 million girls and women worldwide have undergone some form of genital mutilation or cutting
Over 200 million girls and women worldwide
have undergone some form of genital mutilation or cutting. This traditional
practice, which is defined by WHO, UNFPA and UNICEF as “the partial or total
removal of the female external genitalia or other injury to the female genital
organs for cultural or other non-therapeutic reasons,” affects 2 to 3 million
The ritual takes many
different forms, and can lead to many serious health consequences, ranging from
pain and trauma to infection, infertility and even death. In addition to
threatening the sexual and reproductive health of women and girls, it violates
their human right to health and bodily integrity, and often has lasting
physical and psychological effects.
During the meeting, over
70 experts from across the globe, including participants from UN agencies, the
World Bank, faith-based and non-governmental organizations, law enforcement
agencies, and government and research institutions, will discuss strategies and
a road map for ending FGM/C, along with related issues of sexual and
reproductive health, human rights, and gender.
In her remarks on the
first day of the consultation, Fama Hane Ba, the Director of Africa Division at
UNFPA, said that although considerable progress had been made in some
countries, worrying trends were beginning to emerge. These include the
increasing medicalization of the practice as parents seek to have their
daughters cut by health providers so as to minimize harmful physical effects of
Ms. Ba urged
governments, development partners and communities to recommit themselves to
accelerating the elimination of the practice. She commended organizations that
are achieving success through the implementation of innovative strategies based
on dialogue with community leaders.
In earlier welcoming
remarks, Benson Morah, the Director of UNFPA’s Country Support Team Office in
Addis Ababa, stressed the need for all those involved in combatting FGM/C to
adopt a collaborative approach to ending the practice. Such an approach, he
added, should include organizations and institutions at community, national,
regional and global levels. He emphasized the necessary involvement of local
communities “because the practice of FGM/C is deeply rooted in some of our
cultures, and its eradication must also come from changes within those
The prevalence of FGM/C
varies from country to country, but the World Health Organization estimates
that between 100–140 million women have been subjected to the procedure in 28
countries in Africa and in immigrant communities in Europe, Australia, Canada,
New Zealand and the United States. It is now becoming clearer that FGM/C is
also practised in some countries in Asia (India, Indonesia and Malaysia), as
well as in the Middle East.
Until recently, the
contribution of FGM/C to maternal and newborn morbidity and mortality as well
as to infertility was suspected but not scientifically proven. A six-country
study by WHO confirmed that “compared with women who had not undergone FGM,
those who had been subjected to, run a significantly greater risk of requiring
a Caesarean section, an episiotomy and an extended stay in hospital, and also
of suffering from post-partum haemorrhage. The infants of mothers who underwent
extensive forms of FGM/C, including types
II and III, were at an increased risk of dying at childbirth
compared with infants of mothers without FGM.” The more extensive the genital
mutilation, the higher the risks of obstetric complications.

THE General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, Saturday, maintained that the church will not be handed over to ‘rascals’ who are not portraying the image of Christ in their character.
Kumuyi made the declaration via a satellite broadcast from headquarters of the church in Lagos, while teaching on the topic, ‘Fear Not: The Promise Is Still Good’ during the Faith Clinic session at the ongoing Deeper Life National December Retreat, holding at the Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC), which started on Friday, December 21 and ends December 25.
He said the church will not condone any form of rascality and rebellion because the word of God never encourages that and is a strange behaviour capable of taking one to hell fire.
He said: “We are not going to hand the church over to rascals, over to rebellious people that want to scatter everything that is good that the Lord is doing. If you …
