Female Genital Mutilation Ban Bill Votes Expected This Week

4/8/18, Maine First Media Staff Report,

The new Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee Female Genital Mutilation Ban bill has finally been drafted and assigned a legislative document number.

Sources at the Capitol tell Maine First Media, the Senate is expected to vote on LD 1904, An Act To Prohibit the Practice of Female Genital Mutilation of a Minor, this week.

As Maine First Media has previously reported, the Senate is expected to vote on this version of the bill, and it will likely pass.

However, the House is expected to vote on a toothless, amended version of the bill, where the feckless version will likely pass.

The speculation from lawmakers Maine First Media spoke to is, the House and Senate will not be able to reconcile the two versions of the bill.

You can read a full explanation of the two version and why the bill is expected to be heading for a dead end, by clicking here.

The chief contention between sides all session long has been over charging accomplices (parents/guardians and transporters) with a crime for this barbaric act of ritual child abuse.

At a controversial public hearing on the bill, multiple Somali immigrants, who suffered FGM themselves, spoke out against the ban, citing, of course, “racism.”

After initially introducing the ban, crusader against child abuse, Rep. Heather Sirocki (R-Scarborough) was targeted by the hate group, Southern Poverty Law Center with a smear campaign. Maine’s Fake News outlets were quick to follow SPLC’s lead.

FGM Ban critics in Maine also used the tactic of arguing over small words to stall the bill.

Female Genital Mutilation is the ritual cutting or removal of some or all of the external female genitalia. In some cultures, the vulva is sewn shut, only to be ripped open on the woman’s wedding night. The practice is designed to curb sexual desire in women.

If the bill is indeed headed for a dead end this session, it won’t be the first time. Last legislative session, Democrats blocked an FGM ban from passing.

Maine First Media will continue to follow this bill as it makes its way through the legislature.


  • Some of you have heard of the “Jihad Caucus” consisting of 14 Democratic U.S. Senators with a plan to aid the UN in placing 65,000 unvetted Syrian refugees into U.S. cities and towns several years ago.

    I’m dubbing State Reps Charlotte Warren, Rachel Talbot-Ross, Lois Reckitt, Sara Gideon, Thomas Longstaff, Martin Grohman, Erin Herman and Sen. Shenna Bellows as the “FGM Caucus”. Dishonorable mention also goes to the ACLU-ME and the Maine Marxist Alliance as accomplices. I realize we could also add the names of nearly all ME Democrat legislators for voting against the bill TWICE.

    Of course, these apologists for this barbaric practice on young girls will deny the charge accusing everyone of racism and xenophobia. However, if they refuse to pass a bill with stiff penalties for all involved (parents, guardians, “cutters”) then, they’re accomplices in ritual child abuse. Disgusting!

  • Frank is, as usual, completely on the mark. This is a leftist ploy to pretend to think unicorn thoughts and all evil shall simply dissolve. The most guilty of a crime in FGM are the parents or guardians who arrange for the cutting. Surely the cutter is guilty too, but the cause lies with the parents and until they face severe penalties, they will do what they can to “honor” their vile cultural practices. If Frank and I are haters along with Representative Sirocki, then so be it. We indeed hate this evil, disgusting act and it should be annihilated. God will have the final say on these legislators for every little girl mangled if the more punitive bill does not pass. And may God bless all those on both sides of the aisle who have the moral fortitude to vote for it. Should we call murder a misdemeaner so as to not hurt the murderer’s feelings, or not force the murderer to hide the act? That’s the leftist logic here. Pitiful.

And it could not be much more true in this article. Having said that, let me say to you what did work. The article (parts of it) is certainly pretty convincing and this is probably why I am making the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, even though I can easily notice the jumps in reasoning you make, I am not sure of exactly how you appear to connect your points that make the conclusion. For now I shall yield to your point but trust in the foreseeable future you connect your facts much better.
