Law proposed in US to restrict access to Viagra to married men with permission from wives

quote [ A US politician has proposed a law that would require men to get permission from their wives before they could be prescribed Viagra from their doctor as a pointed statement to anti-abortion lawmakers. ]

Keep your hands off our penises! Wait...
Edit: Apparently this is old even though it was (re) published today.
Have some Beautiful Bush (NSFW) to make up for it.

I was sure this had been posted before, but I totally forgot that I posted it.
I'll put the blame on the lazy 'Independent' editor who apparently forgot to check the year of the story they pilfered.
Anyway thanks for the pr0n offering, no Viagra necessary here (so far anyway).

The trouble is most anti-choice people would be just fine with this.

Most anti-choice people wouldn't get the point, which isn't aimed at them so much as the older male politicians who are imposing their own patriarchal morals on women's reproductive choices.
foobar said @ 5:56pm GMT on 20th Feb
Yes, but sex only within marriage is one of those patriarchal morals.

Yep, note the proposed bill was aimed specifically at married men.

Um, no, it's aimed at unmarried men.

The legislation would require men in the state of Kentucky to visit a doctor twice before they could be prescribed any drug for erectile dysfunction. They would also have to be married and to get a signed and dated letter of consent from their spouse.

Well the point is it was meant to curb men's sexual behavior, implying even married men can't be trusted to use the drug strictly in furtherance of their marital commitment. Y'know kind of how male lawmakers try to pass laws implying that women can't be trusted to behave in prim and proper fashion.
Anyway this was over a year ago and needless to say the bill was a fun media jab that never saw the light of day in the Republican male dominated KY legislature.

I think it should be changed to spouse, or if they don't have one, mother, or nearest responsible female relative. Let's go nuts with it. After all, just because they don't have a wife doesn't mean men are capable of making their own decisions! Why, they shouldn't be allowed out in public without a spouse or responsible female relative accompanying them. It's been established men aren't to blame for their raping women, women are to blame for it, so clearly men need female escorts to prevent the men from raping women.

Some days I wonder if I can slam my head into a wall hard enough to be stupid enough to accept the world as it is. That seems to lack the precision I need though... power drill maybe?

Put some crayons up your nose until they pierce your brain.

This actually happened a full year ago.
Also, Kentucky is 'in the US', but is still only Kentucky.
