Georgia Lawmaker Proposes Requiring Permission for Viagra, Criminalizing Vasectomies

Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick’s bill, a rebuke to HB 481, would also potentially make sex without a condom “aggravated assault”

https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/georgia-testicular-bill-of-rights-804180/

“Good morning,” Kendrick wrote. “Please have the following legislation drafted.” The 36-year-old Democrat went on to lay out her objectives as a bulleted list: Require men to obtain permission from their sexual partner before obtaining a prescription for Viagra. Ban vasectomies in Georgia, and criminalize the doctors who perform them. Classify sex without a condom as “aggravated assault.” Require paternity testing at 8 weeks of pregnancy, and require expectant fathers to begin paying child support immediately. Last but not least, Kendrick proposed a 24-hour waiting period on any men wishing to purchase any porn or sex toys in the state of Georgia.

“I’m dead serious,” Kendrick tells Rolling Stone, adding that she expects a draft on her desk by the end of the week. The point, she says, is to “bring awareness to the fact that if you’re going to legislate our bodies, then we have every right to propose legislation to regulate yours.”

Kendrick is spearheading the legislation, which she admits has little hope of ever passing the Georgia House of Representatives, to highlight the absurdity of HB 481, a bill that similarly legislates women’s bodies. On Thursday, the Georgia House approved HB 481, which would outlaw most abortions once a doctor can detect a heartbeat in the womb or around six weeks — before many women even realize they might be pregnant. The controversial “heartbeat bill” passed by a vote of 93-73. The bill will now head to the Georgia State Senate and, if approved as expected, to Governor Brian Kemp’s desk.

3. Viagra Prescription Requires Authorization from someone with a womb

 

Before a doctor can prescribe Viagra (or any other erectile medicine), the patient must acquire a permit to impregnate a womb from the person with the available womb. And all of this paperwork has to be fully public.

Only fair.

12. I'll go back and add the sarcasm emoji

The RS article does have this quote tho.."Require men to obtain permission from their sexual partner before obtaining a prescription for Viagra."

4. "...a 24-hour waiting period on any men wishing to purchase any porn or sex toys in

the state of Georgia." Clearly discriminatory against gay men, who pose no threat of aggravated assault or contributing to paternity, let alone child support default. (I'm kidding...please don't shoot me!)

But seriously, I wish Representative Kendrick was my representative, instead of the pathetic rePuke currently holding that position even though he is the Speaker of the House. Such a shame; I really liked his father, and my niece briefly dated his younger brother.

10. My friends and I have been saying these things for years and years.

I never thought a person with any authority would think the same thing. I know that it is never going to happen and she is making an excellent point about the hypocrisy of the law when it is applied to women and men differently.
