Mother Accused Of Circumcising Her Baby Girl

La Grange, GA – Well here’s something you, thankfully, don’t hear every day. Melody Onyonyor is accused of mutilating her infant daughter’s genitals via clitoral circumcision. I realize that it is a fairly common practice in Asia and Africa, but haven’t heard of such a case here in the states. And, I gotta admit, the mere thought makes me cringe and clench. The child’s father told authorities he had been granted temporary custody of the child and during a diaper change, a relative noticed something looked a little off. The baby was examined at the hospital and doctors determined that there had been some form of surgery performed to remove the child’s clitoris. Based on those findings, Melody, 35, was arrested and charged with cruelty to children and female genital mutilation. A bond amount is unavailable at this time. The child, who is otherwise healthy, remains in her father’s custody while the investigation continues.
