Female genital mutilation in the Uk FGM

I see that the Government is bringing in New laws to stop this awful practice. They are now putting the responsibility on to Teachers and doctors to report cases to the police. Whilst this new piece of legislation is admirable I feel it will do little to end this awful disgusting practice. People have reported cases before and if I am correct virtually no prosecution's have ever come to a successful outcome. This is a bit like closing the stable door long after the horse has run away. Girls will have been mutilated by the time the police get involved. What is needed is more intervention before these children are abused!
All that will happen now is FGM victims will never be seen by doctors and never get the justice they deserve. This is a step towards doing something but in my opinion prevention is better than cure.
