in response to reader comment: Google search - Somali Female Circumcision in Minneapolis

Submitted by pati (United States), Feb 22, 2007 at 11:53

you got 44,900 hits because it looked at female PLUS circumcision PLUS somali PLUS minneapolis........i have lived and worked in the Minneapolis area for over 10 yrs with Somali women in the area of childbirth. This is a practice that was done on them in their home countries as children because it is cultural, not religious. Female circumcision is practiced in many African subcontinent countries with varying religious follwoings.

I can pretty well guarantee you that there are NOT 45k articles on this subject just dealing with Minneapolis!
