Female genital mutilation (FGM) involves the total or partial removal of external female genitalia (i.e the labia minora and labia majora) or other injury to the female genitals for fetish and non medical reasons.
Some of the people who practice this diabolic act believe that it helps to eradicate promiscuity in young girls and women. This is however very wrong as promiscuity is as a result of moral upbringing.
The practice is very wrong and needs to be abolished
- It causes severe bleeding, urinary dysfunction and later cyst infections as well as complications during child birth and increased risk of infant mortality (death of newborn babies).
-Female genital mutilation is a violation of the rights of women and girls.
-Female genital mutilation has no benefits and the magnitude of the damage done depends on the amount of tissue damaged.
Immediate or short term complications caused by female genital mutilation:

-Infection of the genitals
This is caused as a result of the unsterilized objects used in the process .
