Kentucky Lawmaker’s Bill Would Require Men to Get Wife’s Permission Before Buying Viagra

Rep. Mary Lou Marzian, a Democrat from Louisville, KY proposed a bill last week that would affect men who need Viagra or similar drugs to treat erectile dysfunction.

The bill she proposed was meant as a response to Kentucky recently adopting a bill that would require women to see a doctor before they can have an abortion.

Men would have to be married, see a doctor twice and have a written approval from their wives in order to get the drug.

“I started thinking, ‘How would this body of men, there are 80 men in the House, feel if they were subjected to the same kind of government interference in their medical private decisions?” Marzian asked.

She told Reuters, “My point is to illustrate how intrusive and ridiculous it is for elected officials to be inserting themselves into private and personal medical decisions.
