    Default Kentucky bill requires men to get wife's consent for Viagra prescription

    now this is getting crazy. I can't see the issue with a woman receiving counseling before an abortion procedure. If a woman wants to take control of her body, she should have all the information at hand and have an opportunity to consider that information. I know the medical counseling and 24 hour wait period are an attempt to put a hurdle in the way of a woman receiving an abortion, but it does not seem unreasonable to me.

    Does the Kentucky law require men to give consent to the abortion? that would seem to be the counterpart to this viagra law. But I don't think it the case.


    but aside from that, ( I think we've discussed the abortion issue quite a lot) do you think that married men should have to have a wife's consent to get a script for viagra?

    (CNN)Angered by a new law requiring women receive medical counseling at least 24 hours before an abortion, a Kentucky lawmaker decided she was going to "strike a nerve" with her political opponents -- in particular, the men.

    State Rep. Mary Lou Marzian, a Louisville Democrat, has introduced a bill that would require any man seeking a prescription for drugs to treat erectile dysfunction -- such as Viagra, Cialis and Levitra -- to "have two office visits on two different calendar days" before receiving the desired medication.

    Marzian's House Bill 396 would only allow married men access to the treatments and call on them to "produce a signed and dated letter" demonstrating the consent of their current spouse. They would also have to give a sworn statement -- "hand on a Bible" -- that the prescription would only be used for sex with their legal partners.

    "As a woman and a pro-choice woman and as an elected official, I am sick and tired of men -- mostly white men -- legislating personal, private medical decisions," Marzian, a retired nurse and 22-year statehouse veteran, told CNN. "It's none of their business."

    Earlier this month, Republican Gov. Matt Bevin signed into law a bill beefing up the state's "informed consent" requirement for women seeking an abortion. Previously, patients could listen to a phone recording that listed the potential health risks associated with the procedure. Now, women will have to speak to a medical professional in person or via video teleconference.

    Passage of the new restriction set off a social media campaign against Bevin and anti-abortion lawmakers, and while Marzian concedes her bill will have little practical effect on the new law, she said the measure was written to hit opponents where it hurts.

    "When I put this out here, I thought, you know, I will strike a nerve because what is more sacred to men than their ability to have sexual intercourse?" she said with a laugh. "Let's regulate that."

    "I think it illustrates how intrusive it is," Marzian continued, "how wrong it is, for any type of government, whether it's state legislature, whether it's Donald Trump, inserting themselves into personal, private medical decisions."

    I understand what the lady is trying to say, but it isn't the same thing.

    A large number of people believe that life begins at conception, and for those people, it is not just about the woman, it is about the child's rights as well.

    She's trying to equate a baby and a boner on equal terms, when they are not going to be for many people.

    Proof that it doesn't matter the party, politicians of all kinds can be vindictive and childish.

    If this bill last longer than 4 hours on the house floor, they may want to consult with attorney. Usual side effects would be to be brought up before a state or federal judge. When the moment is right, they'll move forward.

    I'm sure they will try to ram it through the legislature. Cum hell or high water.
