Minnesota Lawmakers Looking for Harsher Penalties for Genital Cutting of Children
Prosecutors say the girls were brought to Michigan by their mothers
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota lawmakers are moving to levy harsh penalties on parents who subject their children to genital cutting after a Detroit-area doctor was charged.
Dr. Jumana Nagarwala was charged last week with female genital mutilation and other crimes for allegedly performing the procedure on two seven-year-old Minnesota girls.
The manager of the clinic and his wife were also indicted.
Prosecutors say the girls were brought to Michigan by their mothers.
A Minnesota House panel has unanimously passed a bill that would make it a felony for parents to subject their children to the practice.
