Please share this and if you use twitter the hashtag is #NoFGM. Please contact your MP too.

Originally posted on Hilary Burrage:

Estimates suggest more than 50 small children in Britain are at risk of, or suffer, the grim cruelty of FGM every day.  It leaves deep scars, physically and mentally, and it maims and kills.  How much more pain must be inflicted on girls and babies before this practice is stopped? Who will accept responsibility for halting the horrors of FGM?
Will only a full moral panic about scandals of professional ‘failure to care’ bring the barbarism of FGM to an end?

Please sign and forward this e-petition (for UK citizens), posted 25 June 2012 on the HM Government website:

STOP Female Genital Mutilation (FGM / ‘cutting’) in Britain

If you have a Twitter account and would like to draw more attention to this issue, please use the hashtag   #NoFGM  and follow  @NoFGM1.  Thank you.
