It is a festive season... but (WHY FGM)?


I t is a nice festive season all over the world and people are so happy.
everything is going on well except some people want to misinterpret the real meaning of the word celebrating.
It is an issue about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)
When I started blogging I talked about this issue but still is it is so burning since people are not turning.
It is so pathetic to see women going through the Hardship of FGM. it is so painful and it has a very bad impact. yet some people whoa er even learned they don't want to accept that.
FGM is making women go through a big hardship.

So we can turn this season to a real season..... where we don't interpret in a wrong a way the meaning of cerebrating.. where we can keep and maintain woman's integrity.... where women will be free and happy once more again.
because FGM has a bad impact on a woman psychologically and even physically where by a woman may get some infections of viruses like AIDS, and it may be more difficult for them to give birth in the future and to make the matter worse more women here in Africa are dying due to FGM which does not make any sense.

I pray and people will support me on this issue.

ps: a woman in Africa going through FGM

Dear Rebecca,
I totally agree with you. FGM is a terrible tradition, especially if it is done on young girls against their will.
Good luck in your campaign, my heart is with you.
Love David.
