Kentucky rep proposes bill only allowing married men—with wife’s permission—to get Viagra

Kentucky Rep. Mary Lou Marzian might be my new favorite elected official. Marzian wants to make sure all of these boys who enjoy interfering with girls’ health rights don’t miss out on the fun themselves! She has introduced a bill, HB 396, which would require at least two doctor’s visits. And a permission slip from one’s wife, before a man could acquire erectile disfunction-type drugs.

“I want to protect these men from themselves,” said Marzian, a nurse.

HB 396 also specifies that only married men may obtain the drug and requires “a man to make a sworn statement with his hand on a Bible that he will only use a prescription for a drug for erectile dysfunction when having sexual relations with his current spouse.”

“This is about family values,” Marzian said.

She entered this bill in as a response to the recent SB4 bill that passed through both the Kentucky Senate and House recently.

The Kentucky House today passed anti-abortion measure SB4, which requires counseling 24 hours prior to an abortion. A House floor amendment and committee substitute added this evening allow for the use of telehealth to complete the counseling requirement.

SB4 adds an unnecessary barrier to safe and legal abortion procedures

It’s unlikely this bill will go anywhere because … Kentucky.
