Abuse or not

from New York Times:

A 13-year-old girl was brought to a doctor’s office to have her clitoris removed, a surgery considered necessary here to preserve chastity and honor.The girl died, but that was not the source of the outrage. After her death, the government shut down the clinic, and that got everyone stirred up.

In Egypt, majority of people still support unnecessary circumcision. I think this is a kind of child abuse, and we should work to prevent it.
