Democrat Lawmaker Wants To Fine Men For Masturbation To Protect Abortion Or Something
Democratic Texas state Rep. Jessica Farrar thinks there's an equivalence between killing an unborn child and a man masturbating.
In an attempt to paint pro-life legislation as sexist, Farrar introduced a "satirical" measure to fine men $100 for their "masturbatory emissions." The bill cites each "emission" outside of a vagina "an act against an unborn child, and failing to preserve the sanctity of life."
Somebody missed the sex ed lesson during health class.
It gets even more nonsensical: The bill also states that doctors could refuse to perform vasectomies based on moral grounds, which is moronic since the equivalent of a vasectomy is a female getting her tubes tied. Doctors can and have refused to do both, because that's how the free market works. So, (1) this is not the same as abortion, and (2) there is no sexist component.
"Patients would be required to wait 24 hours before a procedure is performed, and doctors would be made to read a state-printed booklet, 'A Man's Right To Know,' to the patient," notesThe Hill. "Doctors would also be required to perform a 'medically-unnecessary digital rectal exam' and an MRI before performing vasectomies or colonoscopies or before prescribing Viagra."
Again, what does any of this have to do with killing an unborn child?
