I’m Confused

OK, so a woman can have an abortion because it is her body and you can not tell her what to do with it. Unless she wants a piercing? It would make more sense to ban facial piercing, those are ugly and distracting. who is going to know if a woman has her genitals pierced? For that matter, why is it illegal for women and not men? Prince Albert anyone?

Yahoo! News – Georgia House Bans Genital Piercings:

ATLANTA – Genital piercings for women were banned by the Georgia House Wednesday as lawmakers considered a bill outlining punishments for female genital mutilation.

The bill would make such mutilation punishable by two to 20 years in prison. It makes no exception for people who give consent to have the procedure performed on their daughters out of religious or cultural custom.

An amendment adopted without objection added piercing to the list of things that may not be done to female genitals. Even adult women would not be allowed to get the procedure. The bill eventually passed 160-0, with no debate.
