Sign the petition supporting sexual regulation equality
Now that male legislators have decided the states should intrude between women and their physicians on matters of reproductive health, it seems only fair that women legislators should do the same for men.
In Ohio, state Sen. Nina Turner (D) has introduced SB 307, a bill that would require men seeking a prescription for erectile dysfunction drugs to see a sex therapist, receive a cardiac stress test and "get a notarized affidavit signed by a sexual partner affirming impotency."
In Illinois, state Rep. Kelly Cassidy (D) introduced an amendment to HB0786, a bill requiring ultrasounds before a woman can get an abortion, that would require men to watch an explicit video about the side-effects of erectile dysfunction drugs.
Also, Missouri state Rep. Stacey Newman (D) introduced HB 1853, a bill that would allow a man to obtain a vasectomy only when not doing so would protect him from serious injury or death.
Just because these women are joking doesn't mean they aren't serious. These bills highlight the ongoing attacks against women's reproductive rights and privacy.
Sign our petition supporting their efforts. We'll send them the signatures.
To Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner, Illinois state Rep. Kelly Cassidy, and Missouri state Rep. Stacey Newman:
Thank you for bravely fighting for sexual regulation equality for men. While some people may take your recent legislative proposals as jokes, the problem they spotlight—the war on women's reproductive rights and privacy—isn't funny at all. We stand with you.
