Malta Set To Criminalize Virginity Testing

The medical act of virginity testing is set to be criminalized meanwhile female sterilization is expected to become free of charge.

 


This was announced Parliamentary Secretary for Reforms Rebecca Buttigieg this morning who explained that women in Malta could be able to get sterilised without cost, even in the case where it is not medically required.

 

 

This comes just after Health Minister Chris Fearne announced that free contraception will be offered to the general public in the coming months. However, the proposed document claims that this possibility will be only explored.
