David Chamberlain Ph.D. of the Association for Pre and Perinatal Psychology and Health and James W. Prescott, Ph.D. discusses the trauma associated with genital mutilation of infants.
"The greatest crime against humanity is the torture and mutilation of children. Child abuse and neglect, particularly in its extreme forms, represents a form of torture and mutilation. Not commonly recognized as child abuse and neglect and a form of torture and mutilation is the ritual mutilation of genitals of children (male and female). One reason for the non-recognition of these crimes of genital mutilation and torture is their common occurrence and their support by religious and social traditions of various kinds. Another reason is the denial and/or indifference to the pain that is being inflicted upon these children." James Prescott, Ph.D. Developmental Neuropsychologist, Cross-Cultural Psychologist
