Female Genital Mutilation Reduces Fertility

Unlike many who cover genital mutilation, I'm equally appalled when it occurs on either gender. Reuters reports today that victims of female genital mutilation are five to six times more likely to be infertile. A large part of that is probably due to the crude instruments and lack of sterility used to perform the mutilations in third world countries, but it's still a problem.

Parents, don't mutilate your kids - of either gender!
