first_img Legislation by state Rep. Klint Kesto, which permanently revokes a medical professional’s state license if convicted of performing a female genital mutilation procedure, was signed into law by Gov. Rick Snyder today.The bill is part of a bipartisan eight-bill package that also prohibits the procedure, sets sentencing guidelines, improves educational programs for health and law enforcement officials, and extends the civil and criminal statute of limitations for victims.As chair of the House Law and Justice Committee, Kesto led the charge to advance the comprehensive legislation through the state Legislature. He pointed to the brutal and unnecessary nature of female genital mutilations, which is any procedure performed on girls to remove or damage the external genitalia.“Laws are in place to protect our citizens, especially our youngest ones,” said Kesto, of Commerce Township. “All I needed to know was that this is most frequently being done on girls that are 4- to 14 years old and clearly done without their specific consent, with the likelihood of  lifelong physical and mental damage. There’s no place for this in our society.”The bill package follows a February incident where two young girls from Minnesota were subjected to the procedure at a southeast Michigan clinic. A Livonia couple was arrested on federal charges in April after allowing and performing the procedure after hours at their medical clinic, while a third individual has been fired from their emergency room doctor position for performing the procedure at the same Livonia clinic.Kesto’s bill, now Public Act 75 of 2017, will be in effect in 90 days.“One more mutilation is one too many, so I hope these new laws send the message that this will no longer take place without significant repercussions in the state of Michigan,” Kesto said. “That mission made it easy for us all – Republican and Democrat, Senator and Representative – to work together in Lansing for the sake of protecting children.”##### Categories: Kesto News,News 11Jul Rep.
