Women in America are marching in the streets to make abortion free, and meanwhile, these girls are being mutilated by their own mothers. There are no words to adequately respond to this barbarism.

Read the accounts of some of the early explorers in Africa. It wasn’t called the Dark Continent for nothing.

That pretty much blows the theory that all cultures are equal out of the water.

"And of course, it’s easier to blame little girls for being too enticing than it is to repair a culture in which rape and assault are prevalent."

And, American women are sooooooo discriminated against. /s

don’t we have more important things to worry about? This is stupid. If the rock isn’t too hot for the mom to pick up with her hands, it SURE AIN’T DOING ANYTHING to the girl. This is a stupid superstition.

This whole thing is a western propaganda piece to get you to think abortion is better.

The fear of the mother who subject their young daughters to this torture is that men will find the girls attractive and impregnate them. The answer that the reporter is proposing is sex education of young girls, to teach them what not to do - sex education delivered by the schools.

If parents are supposed to be the ultimate arbiters of how and when to educate their children about sex, what do you do when the parents decide it is better to *burn their breasts off*, instead of teaching them about sexual activity and contraception?

It is majority Christian, and apparently this practice occurs throughout the country in both Muslim and Christian regions. I was curious about that too.

Thats what I thought about the still picture.

This whole this is picking out a few extreme cases to get folks to think abortion is a better answer.

Have you seen the women of cameroon? Many women there have saggy flat chests.
