Call it the “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” bill.
A female Kentucky state legislator has introduced a bill that would require men who want to use erectile dysfunction drugs like Cialis, Viagra or Levitra to get a note from their wife first. Then they’d have to make two visits to a doctor and promise to only take the pills before sex with a spouse.
Kentucky Rep. Mary Lou Marzian (D) introduced the bill on Thursday as a way toprotect men’s health and ensure they are informed about a drug with potentially dangerous side effects, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.
“I want to protect these men from themselves,” said Marzian, a retired nurse.
Marzian told The Huffington Post that her proposed law is really a tongue-in-cheek way of pointing out how anti-abortion advocates want to involve the government in people’s bedrooms. She said her legislation shows government needn’t be involved in personal choices, “whether it be about abortion, erectile dysfunction or blood transfusions for Jehovah’s Witnesses.”
Oh, I like this bill!
