Bill introduced to regulate men's reproductive health
Dayton Daily News ^ | March 10, 2012 | Jackie Borchardt

COLUMBUS – 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.”

Under Senate Bill 307, men taking the drugs would continue to be tested for heart problems, receive counseling about possible side effects and receive information about “pursuing celibacy as a viable lifestyle choice.”

I have no problem with this. If this is to correct a physical problem, then of course there should be doctors involved.

So Tina reveals that she, herself, is unfamiliar with plain old vanilla wrapper vaginal sex with men. Otherwise she wouldn't even have thought of this.

Viagra is for the women!

Tell ya what, I’m all for this lady’s idea.

However, to level the playing field and to make the arguments similar, the Viagra must be given to us FOR FREE.

After all, that’s what the other side is arguing for — FREE birth control.

Government writes legislation for punitive purposes. They seek to reward their friends and punish their enemies. Environmental regulation? Tax law? Business regulation? The government is out to get someone and that's why the laws are written.

Fascism is ugly.

Only the insane liberal mind can compare murdering the unborn with the ability to achieve an erection.

If she were truly worried about men’s role in reproductive health, she would offer an amendment to the “Heartbeat bill” that required the father of the unborn child to see the ultrasound too.

But that’s not what is going on here. We are going to see political theater on various birth control/abortion/women’s rights, etc., etc., issues between now November as the Democrats try desperately to hold onto power. And we’ll see the media report this stuff as if it’s straight news, even though there is NO way the left would allow this issue to be mocked (as is so transparently the case with her proposal to get third party witnesses to a man’s ED) if we were talking about women’s sexual disfunction.

If I’m not mistaken, male welfare recipients in New York already get Viagra for free....so, I guess they will be getting the heart examinations, and anything else having to do with their...errr...”readiness” to make babies that will be supported by the taxpayers OR, eventually aborted .

Screw the taxpayers, screw the ...errr...Flukes...and subsidize Planned Parenthood.

So for these women... murdering a human being in the womb should be "free" and unquestioned with nary an examination involved at any age, even 13 yo.

They want a sworn affidavit about a none-functioning penis from the patient's "partner?" Ok, when will abortionists be required to obtain the father's consent?

You are right Laz. Ms. Fluke wants to have the pleasure of sex but responsibilities (babies),so she wants us to pay for her birth control. Men should be treated equally. Oh, and if she wants free birth control she should have to go to a sex therapist first and consider celibacy as an option. Until she is ready for kids that is, hey what a concept!

I can see these regulations if the gov’t is paying for Viagra, but not if they pay for them out of pocket.

Most of the men I prescribe Viagra had diabetic neuropathy or have had surgery for prostate cancer. Usually we do check the heart first, if they are a diabetic.

But when you can buy narcotics on the street, all this would do is give the pushers a side line to make a profit.

She has a point. Whenever Viagra is being used to kill babies these rules should apply.

Well while we’re at it lets regulate KY jelly and demand that a doctor and notarized affidavit from a witness declare the woman too dry...

Idiot.

And I was just saying to my very liberal male friend who is 70 years old that we could solve a whole lot of women’s health issues if all the men would just get vasectomies. The government would pay for it and it would solve the population problem too!!!!!!!!!!!

He shut right up about women’s health issues, and I do mean RIGT up.

Here’s what the doctor’s visit should do.

1) Show the patient a bunch of centerfolds
2) If nothing happens, viagra is prescribed

This illustrates the fact that dumb women view all men in incredibly superficial terms.

when will abortionists be required to obtain the father's consent?

When society stops presumptively demonizing biological fathers as deserters by default.

Women who are rejected by men the most hate men for rejecting them.

What a dim-witted dim this woman is. Using farce to advance her agenda. What happened to Rush when he did that? But she has some good ideas. How about a lengthy mental health evaluation before an abortion? Or testimony from sexual partner before a woman gets the pill? Somehow I don’t think Rep. Pinko will go for that.

As far as I know this person is not hitting on anyone except his wife, who is not me. I just love to have political arguments with him because he gets mad and it’s fun.
