International Day for Zero Tolerance of FGM

Today is the International day for Zero Tolerance of the barbaric form of child abuse known as Female Genital Mutilation or FGM and the NHS is running an FGM prevention programme.

This disgusting practice must be treated as seriously, and punished as severely, as any other form of child abuse.  There is no "cultural" or religious justification for the practice and all civilised countries must do their best to totally eradicate it.
