(Scroll down for video) Doctors in Sweden, have caused an uproar after undercover video exposed their forced virginity tests.
A journalist acting as an aunt, went to a doctor with a 17-year-old girl who posed as her niece, and exposed the scandal, which has caused outrage in the country.
Despite strong protests from the teen, the doctor agreed to perform the test, assuring the aunt that she has performed “hundreds” of virginity tests.
Lawmakers said that they will look into the matter after a reporter took videos of doctors admitting to performing forced virginity tests on girls.
The victims, who are as young as 13 years old, are brought to the doctors who perform the vaginal tests even without consent of the girls.
If the girl is found to have lost her virginity, she is forced to undergo a procedure to have her area sewn together to become a virgin again.
The teenager then gets a certificate to prove that she is a virgin.
