Last year, Alabama passed a law banning abortion except for situations in which the mother’s life is at risk. A federal judge found the bill unconstitutional and the Alabama Attorney General did not appeal the decision. Nevertheless, on Thursday, State Rep. Rolanda Hollis introduced a counter-bill requiring that all men over fifty or who have had three children must get a vasectomy. The bill is silly and fails to make a convincing pro-abortion case.
Under existing law, there are no restrictions on the reproductive rights of men.
This bill would require a man to undergo a vasectomy within ne month of his 50th birthday or the birth of his third biological child, whichever comes first.
Hollis explained that she wants to highlight that it’s wrong for Alabama ever to foreclose the possibility of abortion for unwanted children, especially in cases of rape or incest:
This is to neutralize the abortion ban bill,” Hollis said. “The responsibility is not always on the woman — it takes two to tango. This is to prevent pregnancy and the abortion of unwanted children and to help men become accountable as well as women.
“You don’t think about what women have to go through as far as incest and rape, but you want them to carry a kid out of rape or incest so let’s neutralize it,” she continued.
Hollis further explained that men should not tell women what to do with their bodies:
“I'm pro-life and I'm pro-choice and what I mean by that is I don’t believe in abortion as a birth control, but I believe if a woman is raped or there’s incest or health reasons, then they [should] have a choice,”

How about a law forcing men in street gangs to have one?
So open minded their brains done fell out.
“Or after his third biological child.”
Wouldn’t that be a backdoor way of mandating mandatory parental DNA tests of every newborn where the mother identifies him as the father?
Women won’t like that at all.
How many men over 50 are fathering children in Alabama?
These people are out of their ever lovin’ minds! Makes you wonder if they, in fact, are from this planet.
Not surprising. The left wants to ban our high capacity magazines. Why not our gonads?
FORCE!!! The Leftards favorite word!
If they really wanted equality in abortion law, they would introduce the equivalent for men. Allow the man during the first trimester of the pregnancy, or whatever the amount of time in that state the female is legally allowed to abort, to go into court and renounce all custody and financial responsibility for the child, present and future. Also, make sure that the woman has absolutely no say in this whatsoever. His money, his choice. Then we would begin to have equality.
Every man should be required to get one at 16... And when they are ready to support kids they can pay 3-5 thousand dollars for the reversal. It’s cheaper than child support.
These politicians are ignorant of the experiments and things that were done for the good of the medical community to the Tuskegee area men. I am not surprised of the ignorance and eugenics attitude of this politician. These people are just a decision away from sending whites to concentration camps. This isn’t hyperbole.
Would love to see the statistics on how many unwanted pregnancies, thus abortions, are caused by men over fifty. Heck, just ban all men over fifty from using Viagra.......problem solved.
I was joking.
But maybe instead people should just keep it in their pants till they e found someone they want to stay with?
I would imagine that they will also require the scalpel’s to be lubed up so they can slip easily.
In the bill, are there free AA batteries for women over 50?
Shades of eugenics. The left never changes.
I’m 67, and have been clinically sterile all my life, including 2 ex-wives!
So, the state of Alabamastan, (raspberry)!!!!!
