There is a passage which is frequented used to defend Female Circumcision. It is attributed to "female gynaecologist Sitt al-Banaat Khaalid" from an article entitled "Khitaan al-Banaat Ru’yah Sihhiyyah (Female circumcision from a health point of view)".
It contains many religious and opinion-based arguments, but it also states:
[Female Circumcision] reduces the incidence of urinary tract infections
With regard to the type of female circumcision which involves removal of the prepuce of the clitoris, which is similar to male circumcision, no harmful health effects have been noted.
Does any form of female circumcision reduce urinary tract infections?
