Hands Off Our Penises! Ohio Democrat Seeks to Regulate Men’s Reproductive Health

Posted by on Mar 12, 2012 at 10:26 am

What is it with the loony Democrats and their war on men?

Before getting a prescription for Viagra or other erectile dysfunction drugs, men would have to see a sex therapist, receive a cardiac stress test and get a notarized affidavit signed by a sexual partner affirming impotency, if state Sen. Nina Turner has her way.

The Cleveland Democrat introduced Senate Bill 307 this week.

A critic of efforts to restrict abortion and contraception for women, Turner says she is concerned about men’s reproductive health. Turner’s bill joins a trend of female lawmakers submitting bills regulating men’s health. Turner said if state policymakers want to legislate women’s health choices through measures such as House Bill 125, known as the “Heartbeat bill,” they should also be able to legislate men’s reproductive health. Ohio anti-abortion advocates say the two can’t be compared.

Heartbeat bill sponsor Rep. Lynn Wachtmann, R-Napoleon, said comparing his bill to Turner’s would be like comparing apples to bananas. The Heartbeat bill would prohibit abortion once a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

“I understand some women think my bill is a personal affront,” Wachtmann said. “Protecting the unborn — to compare this to Viagra is not even related.”

Yeah, but why let that stop her when she can get some free publicity with this stupid stunt?

    It’s not a publicity stunt. They just admitted that they are misuing their offices to attack people based upon their gender, for political gain. They aren’t happy with the recption given to an edict stemming from obamacare, so they are attacking ALL men in revenge or as a bargaining chip. That might be a simultaneous hate crime and a racketeering charge.
