Against a partial solution to FGM

Recently, I asked an Egyptian medical doctor whether he had ever encountered FGM. He had indeed encountered it. He told me that he was once at a hospital and was asked whether he would circumcise two children. He agreed, assuming that both children were boys, but then it turned out that one was a boy and the other a girl. He was against FGM, but he decided on the spur of the moment to do something to the girl and draw blood so that her parents would consider the job done and leave her alone. Did this Egyptian doctor apply the pragmatic solution advocated in The Economist?
