Female Genital Mutilation of a Minor

LD 1904 (SP 732)
"An Act To Prohibit the Practice of Female Genital Mutilation of a Minor"

Highly publicized in the media [sic], another bill to PROTECT children was handily defeated
by the Maine House under the leadership [sic]

Some individual asked the question in my other thread, "what if the abusers are the parents"? (parental control was being eliminated from saving their own children), well this bill shows that if the parents are in fact the abusers of their own children, the Maine legislature has their back and will make sure no one can interfere, under the penalty of law, of course... Thanks Maine House, as Maine goes so goes the Nation (listen for the sound of a toilet flushing whenever you hear this slogan).

Performing Female Genital

Performing Female Genital Mutilation on anyone under the age of 18 is a felony in the United States. Has been since 1996. Five years in a federal penitentiary for those convicted.

Once again, the Maine Legislature making busy work to justify their existence.

Actually, it was a good two.

Actually, it was a good two. But you're too slow on the uptake to get it.

But since you mentioned it, you seem like a watermelon: red on the inside and green in all the wrong places; you might want to soak in a mild Clorox solution.

There are federal laws and state laws against murder, as well.

So, I suppose we should repeal the state laws against murder, those being redundant and all.

What a stupid, pathetic argument by the lefties.

Like you're our local Jesus expert.

Well, while you're cheering on our local genital mutilation crowd, perhaps you can explain why we have both federal and state laws against murder? Or is that redundant?

The first time the feds ever

The first time the feds ever brought a case to prosecute FGM was in 2017, a case in Michigan.
Michigan has since passed legislation to criminalize the practice.
Federal law enforcement is only going to be a small part of the effort to protect girls from this practice, nationwide and in the individual states.

In California, no conservative bastion, the practice of FGM was specifically added to their child abuse statute, which calls out people who knowingly allow harm to be done to a child. This would permit the prosecution of parents. A year in prison is the penalty.

Maine child abuse statutes have no such provision, yet Maine Democrats use "it's against our child abuse laws" to justify their votes against the criminalization bill.

This should not be a left-right issue. So sad to see that it is, at least in Maine.

People like Matt hate Christians so much that they are willing to put children at risk so they can express their stupid, pathetic leftie hate.

So what's the back story?

Why is the Maine Democratic party unified against this unobjectionable child-welfare legislation?

Like all pond scum, Beebe

Like all pond scum, Beebe-Center is adept at blubbering her outrage because LePage vetoed her bill on the so-called Child Protection Act which tried to usurp the power and authority of the Executive Branch and hinder DHHS in performing its duties BUT, she was ever so pleased to defeat the Female Genital Mutilation bill for no real reason. One of her ninny cohorts said it would stigmatize the very group who does this despicable act. Oh the horrors of offending Muslim butchers and butchery....

I apologize Economike that I don't know the particulars about this, I have to guess it is a southern Maine special interest, but the reason I posted it is because it is of the same spirit as the ban on conversion therapy that I also posted. It almost appears that the legislature is hostile against children, or willing to sacrifice children for nefarious agendas. I can't offer a better observation than that.

or

Which reminds us to be ever so careful to not stigmatize yesper and muttsie for mutilation of good taste. Where they come from, it's part of the cultural norms.

Economike, my reading of the Dems is that they don't want to make criminals of parents who may not be assimilated to Western ways.

I am open to correction by any who know more.

Mainemom,

Mainemom,

It’s not about not wanting to criminalize unassimilated parents. If someone cuts their daughter like that, they should go to jail. It’s that the law is as much about anti-Muslim virtue signaling as anything.

It’s also seems like a joke that conservatives care about refugee children when the prevailing tenor of their rhetoric and their voting is “send them back to the shithole from which their families fled.”

Filthy-mouth Matt and Jasper are examples of the leftie "brain trust".

They are also why Trump won in 2016, and will win again in 2020.

Keepin the leftie boogie-man alive.

So, let me make sure I understand...according to our "friends" on the left, and our alleged moral betters Jasper and Matt, it's "virtue signalling" to not want a child to be abused by having her genitals cut and destroyed?

The left has always been perfectly willing to sacrifice individuals for the greater good (read: the group). You are a member of the group, as long as you conform to approved beliefs at all times.

Democrats also point out that

Democrats also point out that most of them voted in favor of a different version of the legislation, but Republicans didn't support it.

Here is the bill the Senate passed.

Here is the bill preferred by the Democrats.

These provisions in the bill that passed the Senate were not in the Democrats' preferred bill:

3. A person is guilty of transporting an individual for female genital mutilation of a minor if that person knowingly transports a female individual under 18 years of age outside of this State for the purpose of allowing another person to perform female genital mutilation on the female individual under 18 years of age. Violation of this subsection is a Class A crime.
4. A person is guilty of consenting to female genital mutilation of a minor if that person knowingly consents to female genital mutilation of a female individual under 18 years of age. Violation of this subsection is a Class A crime.

I conclude that not wanting to hold parents accountable is the Democrats' motivation for voting it down.

What part of “go to jail” don’t you understand?

I understand that concept. But if you're against a law because it's mere "virtue signaling" you really can't claim to be serious about "go to jail," can you?
