It seems the AAP has heard the public outcries to their revision of policy in regards to infant female genital mutilation. It has reversed this policy back to the original one of nonsupport.
To quote Dr. Judith S. Palfrey, president of the academy:
“We’re saying don’t do it. Do everything that you can to support that family in this tough time, but don’t be pulled into the procedure.”Dare we hope that they will continue to NOT endorse male genital mutilation?
Our boys deserve to be protected just as much as our girls.
