Shocking! Doctors To Perform Virg!nity Tests On Underage Girls

Doctors in Russia have reportedly been instructed to perform v^rginity tests on
underage girls.

The Russian Investigative Committee has instructed medical professionals to gain
evidence of s3xual activity in girls under the age of 16, according to the Mail Online.

The order has sparked public outcry from gynaecologists and politicians alike who believe
the checks will dissuade young girls from seeing
the doctor when they need to.
However health minister Vladimir Shuldyakov
said doctors must follow the order and “inform
police about all cases when virg!nity was lost as well as about cases of pregnancies and
abortions involving girls under 16 years old.”

The order instructs doctors to check the “integrity of the hymen” and look for signs of
damage.
It comes just months after domestic violence
was partially decriminalised in the country, where women’s rights remain lacking.
The move to give domestic abusers fewer punishments sparked worldwide anger.
