NY Congresswoman Introduces Bill to Make T.I.’s “Virginity Tests” Illegal Sha Be Allah December 2, 2019 feature, Her Source, Her Source | Women's Hip Hop Lifestyle, Hip Hop News | Trending Hip Hop Stories, News Exclusives, Politics More heat has come down on T.I. for the comments he made about his 18-year-old daughter and “checking her hymen” and now the statement has become an anomaly in the political arena. New York Congresswoman Michaelle Solages has introduced a bill that would prohibit doctors to perform “virginity tests” in response to T.I.’s statement about ensuring his daughter’s virginity with these physician-sanctioned tests. According to a report from TMZ, the bill says, “Section 1 of the bill adds two new sections … to the public health law to forbid the performance of a hymen exam on women as a means to ascertain whether a woman is a virgin.” It continues, “[T]he bill stipulates that if someone disregards these rules, it will be considered an act of professional misconduct.” The Long Island, NY politician wants to make the practice a D felony, with the physicians who administer the tests possibly being charged with sexual abuse. T.I. attempted to cop a plea when questioned about his statements by Jada Pinkett-Smith, in which T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, said that his statement was nothing more than a joke taken out of context. It has not been confirmed when the bill will be voted on. TheSource.com will bring you updates to this story as it develops.
