Italy: «All forms of intersex genital mutilation persist, paid for by the State»

Zwischengeschlecht.org on Facebook>>> UN press release, 13.07.2017:
« A representative of StopIGM.org provided the testimony of a person exposed to intersex genital mutilation as a child and said that all forms of intersex genital mutilation persisted in Italy, paid for by the State.  Doctors openly boasted in the media about a large increase in surgeries, while the national institutions openly advocated the practice.  Italy still failed to explicitly prohibit by law and adequately sanction or criminalize the practice. »
