female genital mutilation performed at U.S. university

(Warning: The article gets pretty graphic and contains possible abuse triggers. Sorry to those who read it earlier without a warning. I will be more conscious of this next time when making a post.)

Kind of complicated to copy and paste, so here's a short summary: Pediatric urologist at Cornell University practices female genital mutilation. After cutting away, he uses a vibration-producing instrument on the girls to see whether he has cut away nerve endings (supposedly his goal is NOT to do this -- it's to reduce the size of "large" clitorises). These tests are performed with consenting parents in the room, when many of the girls are old enough to be able to have future memories of what's going on.
