Mayo Clinic Fires Doctor Advocating Female Genital Mutilation

Dr. Hatem Elhagaly, a Muslim pediatrician,  was dismissed from the top-notch clinic for promoting a practice that is illegal in America but, in his words, "honors Islam."

The Mayo Clinic has fired one of their doctors for advocating female genital mutilation. Dr. Hatem Elhagaly, left, a Muslim pediatrician,  was dismissed from the top-notch clinic for promoting a practice that is illegal in America but, in his words, "honors Islam."

Only in the Muslim mind could the brutal mutilation of little girls be considered a source of honor. How utterly evil!

The barbaric practice has no health benefits to women. On the contrary, in addition to the emotional and psychological trauma of the procedure, mutilation of female genitals can cause severe bleeding, urinary problems, painful mentruation, cysts, complication in childbirth, sterility and death.

In a statement released announcing Elhagaly's dismissal, the Mayo Clinic wrote, "Female circumcision in children, referred to as female genital mutilation in U.S. legal statutes, is a felony-level child abuse crime. Mayo Clinic strongly opposes the procedure and it has never been performed at any Mayo Clinic facility."


An internet blog devoted to cutting-edge medical practices and treatments says that Elhagaly "justifies this position by referring repeatedly to the words of classical Islamic scholars from the four schools of mainstream Sunni Islamic thought, all of which attest to FGM's legitimacy under Islam. He also refers to the words of the Prophet Muhammad himself, who reportedly counselled people in his day on how to perform FGM in a way that would be 'more beautiful to behold and better for [the woman's] husband.'
