College Forces Pregnancy Tests On Students
A Chinese technical college has defended their decision of compulsory pregnancy tests for students as a "responsibility" to them and their families.
The college tests new students and asks existing and new students who test positive to leave.
"We are a closed boarding school. Every year we ask new students to take routine health checks. The pregnancy tests are just a part of that. This is a duty toward the students and families", a school official says.
The school, where girls aged 17 and 18 make up about 80 percent of students, gathered "whole classes" of girls into a hall to pass urine samples on to doctors, a local paper reported.
"If a student with an abnormal result is discovered, doctors will report it immediately to the school's student board", it said.
Some students with positive results voluntarily quit the school and others have been asked to transfer. It was also reported there was some cheating with students borrowing urine to trick testers.
