SNP appear to favour child abuse on the NHS
on: September 5, 2019, 14:13

I wrote to my MSP (Member of the Scottish Parliament) recently about the efforts made to stop FGM (Female Genital Mutilation). I suggested MGM (Male GM) should be illegal too. From her reply, it seems the SNP (Scottish National Party) do not think that religiously and culturally motivated FGM and MGM are the same thing. They have bought into the idea that there are "medical benefits" to non-medically required "circumcision" (MGM). They can't see that, by definition, 'non-medical' it isn't done in the interests of the child but due to the ignorance of parents, certain doctors and certain politicians.

They are also quite happy for it to happen on the NHS, according to the Minister for Older People and Equalities, quote, "Religious circumcision for male children is included in the routine waiting list arrangements in NHS Scotland", unquote.

My understanding is that MGM attacks sometimes happen on the NHS in England too. Some doctors probably favour such child abuse.
