Female genital mutilation is a horrific practice that needs to be stopped. I applaud the Russian parliament member who proposed this law, but I think 10 years might be even too weak of a sentence. There needs to be a very strong punishment to stop people from doing it and to show people that it's not right.
Yes, female genital mutilation should carry a ten-year prison sentence in Russia. Mutilation of the genitals is barbaric and needs to be stopped. A 10-year prison sentence may deter others from carrying out female genital mutilation in the future. If this problem is ignored, it could instead be perpetuated into the future.
Yes, female genital mutilation should carry a ten year prison sentence in Russia. The act of female genital mutilation is very damaging to the females that are affected. there is no reason for such archaic practices to be going on today in a civilized country. A serious prison sentence should be imposed.
An increasing number of countries ban female genital mutilation and impose prison sentences on practitioners. Russia should not be an exception. A long prison sentence has helped female genital mutilation rates to fall in many countries, including Canada, the United States, Australia, Portugal, Spain, England, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia among others.
