It's almost as if this were lifted right out of George Orwell's 1984.
The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund, otherwise known as UNICEF, whose role is supposed to be protector of children's rights is promoting the genital mutilation of male children in the so-called name of HIV prevention.
Currently they're looking for a strategist/consultant to formulate plans to mutilate millions in Africa.
The pretext, of course, is HIV prevention.
However, genital mutilation by any other name would still be genital mutilation.
Their recruitment page can be visited right here.
It appears the focus of the strategy is on cost and creating demand for doctor-facilitated male genital mutilation.
Some of the existing programs focus on indoctrinating and pressuring boys at schools.
In some cases, organizations are outright taking school boys without parental consent, as well as circumcising newborns, even though this was not part of the original WHO plan.
It's time we start calling the forced genital mutilation of healthy, non-consenting minors what it is.
Even if "research" showed female circumcision to be "beneficial" to women, forcibly cutting healthy, non-consenting girls would still be a violation of the most basic human rights.
A sad day in the world when an organization whose role is supposed to be protecting the basic human rights of children is actually promoting the very violation of these rights.
Something needs to be done to alert UNICEF donors.
Are they aware of precisely how their donations are being spent?
