Mayo Clinic rids itself of Muslim doctor who condones FGM
Dr. Elhagaly is no longer employed or caring for patients at Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea. We are working with his patients to transition their care to another physician. Because this is a personnel issue, we cannot comment further on Dr. Elhagaly's employment status.Thank goodness he's been banished, and he should also have his medical license and credentials revoked, which is just what this petition calls for too.
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.
Update: more on this at The Jawa Report.
