Spain boosts fight against female genital mutilation
Parents in Spain will be asked to sign a declaration promising their daughters will not undergo female genital mutilation when they visit nations where the practice is common, under a new government protocol approved Wednesday.
The measure is part of a comprehensive strategy for preventing, detecting and treating the practice among at-risk populations in Spain.
"I promise to look after the health of the minor(s) who I am responsible for and prevent genital mutilation and come to a medical review after returning from the trip," reads the document pediatricians will require parents to sign.
