370.999 Female Genital Mutilation

The Colorado Medical Society (CMS) condemns the practice of female genital mutilation, as defined by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology as a medically inappropriate procedure that has no scientific basis. The CMS considers it a form of physical abuse subject to the same criminal sanctions and reporting requirements as any other type of physical abuse.
