Why does the state need to be involved?

Insurance companies and doctors both, as a general rule refuse female circumcision.

This isn't about creating laws. This about education.

When I did research on it, and then spoke to my folks, I found out what the deciding factor was.... Not religion, not health, but that the doctor pushed it. A lot more money for him, for two seconds of work.

It is also the reason why we have FAR TOO MANY hysterectomies. Insurance will cover a full hysterectomy without question, while requires a shitload of proof before paying for a tumor removal (and for the record, feminine "tumors" are more often than not benign so many are sterilized because it's cheaper, and not because it was required).

It's about what the doctors know they will get paid for. That simple.
