Female Genital Mutilation is Now Illegal in Sudan!!

*WARNING: CONTAINS DESCRIPTION OF FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION WHICH IS QUITE GRUESOME*


FGM (female genital mutilation) is performed on young girls before going through puberty. It is the practise of removing inner and outer labia and usually the clitoris as well. This has absolutely no medical benefits and can cause a lot of both short term and harm including severe bleeding, kidney and liver problems, problems urinating, problems during pregnancy and still births, infection, and sometimes death. It also nearly completely eliminates the possibility of pleasurable sex and can actually cause sex to be a very painful experience.


As well as serving no medical purpose, FGM is a very dangerous and painful procedure. It is performed on young girls between infancy and fifteen-years-old. It is done by force and sometimes includes being tied to a table and is very rarely done with any sort of pain medication. It is often performed in poor conditions. It is not usually carried out by a medical professional and is often done by using a scalpel, knife, razor blades, scissors, or even broken glass. This can lead to terrible infections, severe bleeding, shock and even death.
