Yes, I've read a bit about it. That's one of the reasons I don't understand why some look back so fondly on the "good ole days". They were only good if you were white, Christian and male. Everyone else had plenty to complain about. Female circumcision was done to help with pms, mood swings and menopause up until the 1960's.

yes i have heard of it.... i think on one hand it is insane to do because someone is MR... on the other hand i think that abortion needs a clause about this.. like after lets say 10 abortions you have to get a tubal... female circ has nothing to do with sterilization, it is just cruelty to women in parts of the globe where women have no rights... it doesn't stop pregnancy! that is not what this is about.. back in the 60's if you were institutionalized for mental issues you basically had no human rights... very sad but things are better now, i think?....

Margaret Sangor, who is known ironically as "the Mother of planned parenthood", LOL, can be quoted as verbalizing her dislike for blacks, poor and foreigners. She was a terrible mother who spent most of her days and nites and( quite a bit of time in jail) campaigning and writing pamphlets to encourage our country to help there be less blacks, poor and foreigners in this country by making sure they used birth control. She was completely and proudly prejudiced.
