Top 20 Cities in U.S. Where Women and Girls at Risk for Female Genital Mutilation

25

Why are these areas at at such high risk? Because they are designated gateway cities for Muslim refugee resettlement. This report was generated in February 2016 — it is a year later and worse. The gruesome practice of female genital mutilation is at record highs and on the rise in America, due to the influx of Muslim immigrants. It is incredible that the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) does not track cases of FGM at the state level. That is how deep the islamization of our state and federal agencies has gone.

FGM fact sheet:

The number of women and girls at risk for female genital mutilation (FGM) in the United States has more than doubled in the past 10 years. More than half a million women and girls in the U.S. are at risk of undergoing FGM in the U.S. or abroad, or have already undergone the procedure, including 166,173 under the age of 18, according to the Population Reference Bureau (PRB).

Dissemblers and deceivers claim that FGM is cultural phenomenon, not religious. FGM is an Islamic cultural phenomenon. FGM is found only within and adjacent to Muslim communities.

Unlike male circumcision, female genital mutilation has no health benefits for girls and women.

Female genital mutilation (FGM) involves partial or total removal of the clitoris, causing injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.

Femal genital mutilation procedure has no health benefits for girls and women. It removes all possibility of sexual pleasure. It is the worst kind of misogyny.

Procedures can cause severe bleeding and problems urinating, and later cysts, infections, as well as complications in childbirth and increased risk of newborn deaths.

More than 200 million girls and women alive today have been cut in 30 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, where FGM is concentrated

FGM is mostly carried out on young girls between infancy and age 15.

FGM is a violation of the human rights of girls and women.

FGM is found only within and adjacent to Muslim communities (source: Gerry Mackie, “Ending Footbinding and Infibulation: A Convention Account,” American Sociological Review).

How little do Americans (especially young people)  know about FGM. Watch this video:

Women and Girls at Risk of Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting in the United States

PRB, February 2016:

A new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report on female genital mutilation/cutting in the United States was released in January 2016, providing additional information on women and girls at risk.

(February 2016) Female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C), involving partial or total removal of the external genitals of girls and women for religious, cultural, or other nonmedical reasons, has devastating immediate and long-term health and social effects, especially related to childbirth. This type of violence against women violates women’s human rights. There are more than 3 million girls, the majority in sub-Saharan Africa, who are at risk of cutting/mutilation each year. In Djibouti, Guinea, and Somalia, nine in 10 girls ages 15 to 19 have been subjected to FGM/C. Some countries in Africa have recently outlawed the practice, including Guinea-Bissau, but progress in eliminating the harmful traditional practice has been slow.1 Although FGM/C is most prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa, global migration patterns have increased the risk of FGM/C among women and girls living in developed countries, including the United States.

Increasingly, policymakers, NGOs, and community leaders are speaking out against this harmful traditional practice. As more information becomes available about the practice, it is clear that FGM/C needs to be unmasked and challenged around the world.

The U.S. Congress passed a law in 1996 making it illegal to perform FGM/C and 23 states have laws against the practice.2 Despite decades of work in the United States and globally to prevent FGM/C, it remains a significant harmful tradition for millions of girls and women. In the last few years, renewed efforts to protect girls from undergoing this procedure globally and in immigrant populations have resulted in policy successes. In Great Britain and in other European countries, a groundswell of attention has focused on eradicating the practice among the large immigrant populations of girls and women who have been cut or are at risk of being cut. Moreover, in 2012 the 67th session of the UN General Assembly passed a resolution urging states to condemn all harmful practices that affect women and girls, especially FGM/C. The UN resolution was a significant step toward ending the practice around the world.

In the United States, efforts to stop families from sending their daughters to their home countries to be cut led to a 2013 law making it illegal to knowingly transport a girl out of the United States for the purpose of cutting. FGM/C has gained attention in the United States in part because of the rising number of immigrants from countries where FGM/C is prevalent, especially sub-Saharan Africa. Between 2000 and 2013, the foreign-born population from Africa more than doubled, from 881,000 to 1.8 million.3

The Risk of FGM/C in the United States

In 2013, there were up to 507,000 U.S. women and girls who had undergone FGM/C or were at risk of the procedure, according to PRB’s data analysis. This figure is more than twice the number of women and girls estimated to be at risk in 2000 (228,000).4 The rapid increase in women and girls at risk reflects an increase in immigration to the United States, rather than an increase in the share of women and girls at risk of being cut. The estimated U.S. population at risk of FGM/C is calculated by applying country- and age-specific FGM/C prevalence rates to the number of U.S. women and girls with ties to those countries. A detailed description of PRB’s methods to estimate women and girls at risk of FGM/C is available.

Just three sending countries—Egypt, Ethiopia, and Somalia—accounted for 55 percent of all U.S. women and girls at risk in 2013 (see Table 1). These three countries stand out because they have a combination of high FGM/C prevalence rates and a relatively large number of immigrants to the United States. The FGM/C prevalence rate for women and girls ages 15 to 49 is 91 percent in Egypt, 74 percent in Ethiopia, and 98 percent in Somalia. About 97 percent of U.S. women and girls at risk were from African countries, while just 3 percent were from Asia (Iraq and Yemen).

Girls under age 18 made up one-third of all females at risk of FGM/C in 2013. While some of these girls were born in countries with high prevalence rates, the majority are U.S.-born children of parents from high-prevalence countries. Anecdotal reports tell of U.S.-born girls being cut while on vacation in their parents’ countries of origin and of people traveling to the United States to perform FGM/C on girls here.5

The number of women and girls at risk varies widely across different states (see map). In 2013, about three-fifths of all women and girls at risk of FGM/C lived in eight states: California, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia, and Washington. California had the largest at-risk population (57,000), followed by New York (48,000), and Minnesota (44,000). Minnesota has a disproportionate number of women and girls at risk of FGM/C because of its large Somali immigrant population, estimated at more than 31,000 in 2013. See the number of women and girls at risk in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

While the population at risk is still highly concentrated in large “gateway” states, many immigrant families have fanned out from traditional immigrant gateways to new destinations around the country. Some states also receive large numbers of African refugees. In fiscal year 2014, one-fourth of the 70,000 refugees arriving in the United States were from Africa.6

Most women and girls at risk of FGM/C are living in cities or suburbs of large metropolitan areas. In 2013, 40 percent of the population at risk lived in five metro areas: New York, Washington, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Los Angeles, and Seattle (see Table 2). See a list of the 50 metropolitan areas with the largest at-risk populations.

Looking Ahead

With the rise in international migration, the lines between issues facing women and girls in the U.S. and developing countries are blurred. Although FGM/C prevalence rates have held steady or declined in many African countries in recent years, the number of women and girls at risk of FGM/C in the United States is expected to increase in the future, as the foreign-born population from Africa increases.

Given the rapid growth of the youth population in developing countries, improving the well-being of girls has become a priority for many international organizations that promote gender equality and higher standards of living across the globe. Ending harmful practices against women and girls in developing countries could have a measurable impact on the well-being of immigrant families around the world.

    The problem with the absurd – and now thoroughly discredited – theory of multiculturalism is that under it all cultures are to be considered equal and treated equally, with no culture having the right to criticise another. Yet how can the civilised, democratic, free and tolerant cultures of the West and the Orient be compared to the backward, violent cultures of the Muslim world and black Africa, which, for example consider the savage, primitive tradition of FGM to be acceptable and desirable?

    • b87

      True. But those other cultures do not believe in multiculturalism, so they are by default, superior and better than our multi-culti, self-destructive culture.

  • knightsstrength

    Very simple, the females that agree that they should be allowed to have FGM.
    Just say to them we are going to remove yours, and no more sexual enjoyment. Make them think, they would not like it

    Again deportation of all Muslims needed to get them out as FGM is not the West way. They will never mix in, but only to bring Sharia and FGM to all even the stupid Muslim females that have not had it yet.

    The leftist brainless sods of females should think how they would like FGM, and not to have pleasure. All these stupid females like to be slaves to sick males and no real males between any of the Muslims just child abusers, rapist. Hang the lot and feed them to the sharks. Stop the shark attacks at the beaches as the sharks would have food again than the over fushed seas, oceans

    • peakpower

      Agreed. There is no place for muzzies in western society. They are addicted to their stone age beliefs and derive superiority out of those very beliefs. Talk about backwards.

      And the leftists are bringing them in to reshape society by bringing about a second inquisition to cleanse society into some new hell on earth. This insanity must be stopped.

      • knightsstrength

        There is so much to the left, 2000 years of history, but most important been 300 AD to 600 AD including Muhammad
        I cannot put 2000 years down in a few lines.

        We also forget the 4th Crusade​ that sacked Constantnople, weakened it for the final takeover by the Muslims. The New Rome returned back to Italy. We’re​ not told the truth think about it and what is said. Takes some time to raise armies. Muslims were sitting and waiting.
        Been many coverups through histiry. One has to study Constantine in detail, the Chi-Rho, his baptism to Roman Catholicism. To me Constantine was a Traditore himself, betraying Christ

      I thought the same thing. It seems that the black African Muslim countries are the worst with FGM. Maybe that’s why Mohammed called them raisin heads.

        We’ll see how many brainless leftist will get behind the stupid train to hell on earth. It’s as if the globalists roll this out to see how it will float as a trial balloon. Then back to the drawing board until they get the traction they need.

    • Joe1938

      Islam is not a religion! islam Is a political system wrapped around a pedophile’s plagiarized materials from several sources and from imagination during drunken stupor. Goals of the islamofascist movement, which encompasses all mullahs, al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, and many others, is to promote a political ideology that seeks to subjugate all the world’s peoples, by physical force, under the supreme governing authority of islamofascist law, in every area of life and thought. The islamofascist goal is to enforce submission in body and mind—on pain of death. When considering taqiyya and kitman, one realizes that there is only one outcome between islam and infidels and that is a fight to death.

    That’s a great idea! Instead of bringing in the the best and the brightest let’s bring in more and more of these savages from third world hell holes! They’ll fit right in don’t ya think?

    Of course Columbia University condones this sick practice because they are 100% liberals, which is a special kind of retarded. These students should be introduced to women who have had this barbaric practice done to them, and ask them what they feel about it. At least 95%+ were butchered before they reached adulthood. There is, and was, no free choice in this; no consent. This is imposed by the parents of these girls who are the victims of 1500 years of condoned incest. Incest results in high mortality rates in childbirth, severe birth defects, ands lowered IQ with each generation. The obvious conclusion is these not so very intelligent parents follow the gruesome practices of Islam, and these girls who are old enough to object to FGM/C, are also too dim-witted to be effective in their objections. So this horror continues from generation to generation, and the Columbia University students are all for it!

    • Joe1938

      More re “special kind of retarded”; From an expert; Liberals are clinically mad, concludes top psychiatrist Dr. Lyle Rossiter. Doctor Rossiter makes case that leftist ideology is a mental disorder.

    Ah yes! The world of islam where men are men and women are cattle. Koran, Women, 4:34
    Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them. God is high, supreme.

    We don’t need, want, nor will we tolerate more barbarians, even if they weren’t living here at our expense.
    Ask yourselves why certain elites want more of them here. What do they have to gain?
    Another facet of the Coward-Piven strategy? Yes. Likely Democrat votes? Yes. Changing the “complexion” of America? Assuredly.
