Hey i have posted my intro and conclusion below, just need some help.. wondering if i go deeper into detail within my conclusion and if anyone has any suggestions, Thanks everyone
Numerous third world countries such as Kenya, Somalia, Egypt, and Mali have alarmingly high rates of female genital mutilation (FGM) present. This surgery has become a tradition within cultures and almost always has consequences. During the operation the labia majora to be cut and sown together, the extent of the sow depends on the religion/ cultural request. More recently this practice has been brought to the attention of many law forces within countries such as Indonesia and the practice has been abolished. Although there is a lot more awareness of this ongoing problem there are still many countries where it is still prominent. Since many of the surgeries are done in private and secrecy it hard to know the exact number of operations done per year, as well as all of the complications that follow. Female genital mutilation has been outlawed in many countries due to the immense amount of health related complications such as, immediate and long term effects as well as death.
Female genital mutilation is becoming increasing more dangerous as the awareness of the issue spreads. The botched surgery is being performed in even poorer quality environments due to the level of secrecy needed. FGM violates act 3 and 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Act 3 states that ‘everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person’ (United Nations, 2012), this right is being taken away when these young girls are being forced through a painful surgery with a high risk of death. Act 5 states that ‘no one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment’ this right is being taken away for the reason that female circumcision is a cruel and excruciating operation performed with little or no anesthetic. It is inhuman especially because the woman is not given a choice. This surgery is an overall step back in the evolution of human rights and the safety of women.

It's seems like you have it down pretty nicely.
You have a general topic in your intro, and then specify the controlling idea in the conclusion about human rights and whatnot. Maybe be a little more specific in the conclusion if anything.
Also the sentence "During the operation the labia majora to be cut and sown together, the extent of the sow depends on the religion/ cultural request." Seems odd to me.
Good stuff though!
