Maine: House Democrats Kill Bill to Ban Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

Following swift action from Maine House Democrats on the last day of the legislative session, there will be no Female Genital Mutilation ban in the Pine Tree State.

After months of pretending they wanted to stop the barbaric ritual child abuse of FGM, the Democrat caucus showed their true colors on the issue late Wednesday night.

By a final vote of 77-70, the House killed the FGM ban in a mostly party-line vote. Rep. Cathy Nadeau (D-Winslow) was the only Democrat who crossed the aisle to protect young daughters of immigrants in Maine from this brutal abuse.

Republican Rep. Heather Sirocki of Scarborough points out Democrats voted to kill an FGM Ban in April, which is Child Abuse Prevention Month. And in fact, they did it on the “Week of the Young Child.”

Rep. Sirocki says Maine House Democrats initially decided to table the bill with the intent of letting it cowardly die without the courtesy of a vote. However, supporters of the ban made their voices heard.

“Playing games with a child abuse bill is shameful,” Rep. Sirocki said. “Finally, after hours of phone calls from all over the country and state urging Speaker Gideon to relent, she brought the bill to the Floor at 10:30 pm. The Democrats like to talk about victims’ rights, women’s rights, child advocacy, human rights, and justice — but their votes on this horrific form of child abuse do not back up all of their talk.”

The same FGM Ban bill killed in the House, passed the State Senate 30-5, with only the most far-Left Senators voting against it.

But late Wednesday night the show was over.

House Democrats threw a tantrum in the wake of Republicans voting against extending the legislative session. The FGM ban was one of several critical bills Democrats killed in a matter of hours. In fact, it was jaw-dropping to watch, after months of little action from the House, Democrat “leadership” managed to pull together votes to kill a handful of good bills in just a matter of hours. The breakneck speed makes one question what “leadership” has been doing all session.

To learn more about the horrific abuse, listen to FGM survivor, F.A. Cole’s testimony in front of the CJPS Committee. Cole fights through a panic attack to share her story with Maine Legislators in the hope it would save young daughters of Maine immigrants from suffering through the same terrifying experience.

  1. Democrats are America’s worst enemies.
    Then comes, Islam, China, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, the anti-America Media, Google, Facebook, Twitter…you know, the usual suspects…
    NOTHING good for the future of America

  2. The Democrats say they support women but this proves they are lying, once again. The Democrats are the most Anti-American group in the United States government these days. They have been for some time as they supported Slavery, Jim Crow laws, and still continue to try and cheat to stay in power and get votes. It has reached the pinnacle under the obamanation and with them trying to steal the presidency for hillary.

  4. Democrats, you are stating you are against WOMENS rights by this vote. How else can it be interpreted. It is not the least bit American! You are cowards, disgusting and in-American!

  5. As a state, allowing Islam’s shitpile Sharia law dictate and allow the mutilation of young females and be condoned by our legislature is outrageous. The Legislatures that voted for this should all die a slow painful, long term suffering non-violent death. We are lost. Will Governor Paul Page veto the bill or can he?

    Well-said for the most part, but Russia does not belong on the list of America’s enemies. In fact, in the existential struggle against Islam and its globalist/NWO backers, the Russians are allies and ought to be regarded as such.

    Do not forget that modern Russia has suffered greatly at the hands of the jihadists, especially in Chechnya and because of terrorist attacks like the Beslan school siege/massacre of 2006. The Islamic separatists in Chechnya are so fanatical that even other jihadist and terror groups give them a wide berth. Their fanatical leader, Shamil Basayev, who ordered the attack, was killed in a bomb blast in July, 2006.

    Russia may have been the enemy of the West during the Cold War, but the Cold War ended almost thirty years ago, and since that time, post-communist Russia has reverted to its historic norm as an explicitly Eastern Orthodox Christian nation. President Vladimir Putin, a former colonel in the KGB, publicly renounced the old ways in his reaffirmation of Christianity.

    Whether Putin was engaging in a publicity stunt or was genuine is a matter for readers to decide for themselves, but the act was significant for what it says about present-day Russian culture, if nothing else. 21st-century Russia is more-traditional culturally than most of the nations of western Europe, the U.K., and the United States.

  7. In addition to allowing shariaists to have their way with girls and women, most democrat leftists oppose a woman’s choice to carry the means to protect her own body against the robber, the rapist or the murderer.

  8. Cultura de muerte para crear caos Globalista y luego poner un nuevo Orden Mundial como dictadura socialista de solucion. infierno apocalíptico

  9. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Islam is not, and never has been, a “religion of peace.”

    Your article and site here are extremely well-done. I am also on WordPress, but I am not yet nearly as skilled at making my site! But if you enjoy a little poetry break, I welcome you to newageeve.wordpress.com.

  10. Cowards do not defend women’s rights at all! Women have a fundamental right to self-determination and sexual freedom. Islam denies both and treats women as property.

  12. Full doxxing and visitation. Make them uncomfortable by “friendly visits” from Deplorables.

    Thanks for the heads up.

  14. Rep. Heather Sirocki was also viciously maligned personally by the state Dems, the ACLU-ME, and, of course, the SPLC. Whether this barbaric practice is cultural or religious, it has NO place in our society. She did the absolute right thing, but the Left cares more about their agenda of aligning themselves with Islamists than protecting little girls. Disgraceful!

  15. It has been over 470 days that the Republicans controlled the House, the Senate, the executive branch and have a majority in the Supreme Court. This is absolutely shameful that the Republicans have done nothing to stop this practice and protect the children.

    • The feds have had a law on the books for 22+ years without a single prosecution. That’s the reason 26 states have developed their own versions.

  16. Any real woman should declare political war, and demand an immediate end to Sharia law and genital mutilation. If you allow this, you eventually any and all abuse against girls and women.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
