Australian doctors may soon perform genital mutilations on baby girls in a bid to curb a dangerous rise in backyard surgeries, according to a report.

The Royal Australian New Zealand College of Obstetricians is considering allowing doctors to carry out "ritual nicks" on baby girls whose families may otherwise turn to illegal operations, the Daily Telegraph reports.

The practice, though illegal, is widespread among African, Asian and Middle Eastern communities.

Doctors are reportedly seeing increasing cases of girls who require surgery after botched operations, which are often performed in domestic situations with razors or pieces of glass.

RANZCOG spokeswoman Gino Pecoraro told the newspaper that any decision would require widespread consultation.

"If a nick could meet the cultural needs of a particular woman, then it might save her from going through what can really be drastic surgery," she said.

"But we need to make sure we do not legitimise the ritualistic maiming of children."

i understand some cultures do, but its a shame they continue certain things here if that makes sense. Its a shame that being in another country the kids dont get to make the choice. Though a doctor doing it is alot better than a backyard job.

I'm in two minds about this one...doing it in a sterilized area by a doctor is definately better than a botched home job with glass or rusty metal but what else will it open the gates to allow to become mainstream that is considered absolutley barbaric by our culture?
