As if Genital Mutilation weren’t enough, now I read…
– Dr. Kees Waaldijk began surgery shortly before 10 a.m. one recent
Saturday in a cement-walled operating room in this city near Nigeria’s
northern border. More than five hours later, orderlies carried the last
of four girls to the recovery ward. In the near-90 degree heat, Dr.
Waaldijk’s light blue surgical garb had turned dark with sweat.
"We are finished for the day," he barked.
This is so sad.
