What’s good for the goose

By Odd Man Out
An Ohio legislator is trying to turn the tables on those who wage war on women’s rights. From TCM:

On Tuesday, Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner (D-Cleveland) will introduce a bill aimed at cracking down on prescription drugs like Viagra that treat erectile dysfunction. Turner’s legislation would make men jump through certain hoops — such as psychological screenings — before they could obtain the meds. The bill follows FDA recommendations to determine the underlying causes of erectile dysfunction — but that’s certainly not the only reason Turner is putting the measure forward…

“All across the country, including in Ohio, I thought since men are certainly paying great attention to women’s health that we should definitely return the favor,” Turner told TPM. Her bill is one of several pieces of legislation offered over the past several weeks by women lawmakers eager to prove a point about the raging contraception debate.
Their bills seek to regulate men’s sexual health, from Viagra to vasectomies, just as Republican-led state governments and Congress have zeroed in on access to abortion and family planning care.

Turner’s bill mimics language found in Ohio’s so-called Heartbeat Bill, which passed the Ohio state House and is now pending in the Senate. The bill would ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, sometimes as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. Turner’s bill, she says, offers men a taste of their own medicine — it would require physicians to inform patients in writing of the risks involved in taking erectile dysfunction drugs and requires men to sign a document acknowledging the risks, just like the anti-abortion bill does…

  1. This is what confused Rash Lindberger. Every time Rash gets a boner he takes a little blue pill. So he thought that a woman had to do the same thing with her birth control pills. Which is why he said that Fluke couldn’t afford all of her “birth control” every month. In Rash’s mind you pop a pill and then have sex (one way or another). So for Rash, Fluke was having way to much sex on the taxpayers dollar every month. But what really pissed Rash off is that all that pill popping and sex that Fluke was having didn’t include him. That’s why he wanted video. What a sick, stupid bastard.

  2. I’ve been bringing the Viagra up with the gentlemen I know on social media. The argument was the BCP’s were for recreational sex. What are the blue pills for? Look at the commercials, are those child bearing year Daddies?

  3. no boohunney, men NEED it for their health, women are just sluts who want it for their own selfish reasons, which no one could possible understand.

  4. How would you actually enforce this? I mean, you could, but given that Viagra is hardly only prescribed for ED, what are you actually going to do? Ban it? Try to screen who gets it for ED and who gets it because they need the help with blood circulation?

    What I mean to say is, how many men are you willing to see have their legs cut off to make what you clearly view as a ‘harmless’ political stunt? Or did you do no actual research on what Viagra is prescribed for in the real world, and not just in TV sitcoms?

  5. Yeah, well. Here in George “Macaca” Allen’s Confederate Paradise, the Goober governor just signed the law requiring ultrasounds before an abortion can be done legally. These cretins feel the Santorum running through them and that’s a terrifying thing.

    Like Moore said, this country elected Bush the Younger twice and could as easily elect a Santorum.

    Sorry. Getting a piece of ass is not considered a medically necessary life function. Get a grip.

  7. Right on, Soullite.

    Every morning I awake with a loss of circulation in my legs, granitic constipation, and a migraine headache to beat the band. I need to take four jumbo-size V-pills just to be able to get out of bed, and than need to take two more every three hours just to get through the day.

    At retail prices, that would come to more than $150 a day, or about $60K a year.
    Thank god I have good health insurance through my job at Goldman Sachs.

  8. Nope, nope, not there yet. Where’s the trans urethral ultrasound? Now that will stop the boys from screwin around!
