Law banning female genital mutilation ruled unconstitutional; Michigan doctors cleared of charges

And no one will bother to ask feminists what they think of this

Quote
A federal judge on Tuesday ruled that the U.S. law banning female genital mutilation was unconstitutional and dismissed charges against several doctors in Michigan who carried out the procedure on underage girls as part Muslim sect’s religious practice.

U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman ruled that Congress had no authority to enact a law that criminalizes female genital mutilation (FGM). “As despicable as [FGM] may be… [Congress] overstepped its bounds” by banning the procedure, the judge said.

The ruling came after defense lawyers challenged the 22-year-old genital mutilation law that hasn’t been used until 2017 when Dr. Jumana Nagarwala was arrested and accused of mutilating the genitalia of young girls.

So this judge is saying that it is up to each state to decide if cutting off a woman's clitoris for no good reason is ok or not?

Very strange...
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

Sounds like the judge might be supportive of each state deciding whether the states can decide whether to allow cutting up a woman's baby, too...
