Law Is Proposed in Kentucky Requiring Married Men To Obtain Wives Permission Before Buying Viagra
Kentucky lawmaker introduced a bill to require married men to get permission from their wives before allowed to buy viagra. The new bill is proposed last year.
The bill was introduced by Rep. Mary Lou Marzian, a Democrat from Louisville as House Bill 369, according to NBC 4 Channel. In the new introduced bill, every men must visit the doctor twice before able to get erectile dysfunction medication such as Viagra, Cialis, Levitra and Avanafi. More than that, they have be married as well, and obtain a letter of consent from their wives.
Marzian has been promoting the House Bill 369 since last year. In the proposed law, she also introduced a law that require a man to make a sworn statement to he will use the Viagra for a sexual relationship with his wives.
As a nurse, Marzian wanted to show that a law concerning private and personal medical decision is obtrusive. She introduced the bill just in a few days after Governor of Kentucky Matt Bevin introduced a law that required woman to receive counseling from the doctor before having an abortion, FOX 59 News reported.
She said that the bill was introduced as a form of protest against a male dominated General Assembly. She wanted to send the message that the bill signed by the governor is an intervention to the woman’s health. Therefore she made a counter move by introducing the Viagra bill.
Many feminist lawmakers have introduced the bill to counter the law that prohibit women to take control of their own body and health. In 2012, Nina Turner, a legislator in Ohio introduced a similar bill. Her bill, the Turner Bill, required men to receive psychological counseling before they are allowed to have access to Viagra.
Four years later in South Carolina, Representative Mia McLeod proposed similar bill as the Marzian’s in Kentucky. However, neither of the lawmakers are serious to push the bill. Watch the news about the introduction of the Viagra Bil in Kentucky below:
