Viagra bill would put men in a hard place

Part logic, part snarky political response

01.01.2012

“Women, we are not going to take this lying down,” says Ohio Senator Nina Turner, a Democrat, on the recent inundation of reproductive-related bills. She is backing the Viagra bill, which would require men to see sex therapists, undergo cardiac stress tests and obtain written affidavits from their sexual partners before being able to get a prescription for the popular erectile dysfunction treatment drug. This comes in response to the surfacing of 430 reproductive-related bills proposed in the States since the beginning of this year; Turner hopes to level the playing field by showing men the same kind of “love” they’ve been giving women.
 
It may be the 21st century in North American society, but men still believe they have the right to impose their opinions on women’s reproductive rights. These draconian beliefs are almost like thinking HIV-positive people should be treated as potential criminals. Or that by having gay sex your blood is tainted.
 
Oh wait . . .

      Maybe. Just wait but don't worry about it. Just in case, IF you think you CA any money, put it aside. If they haven't contacted you in the next 2 years, I'd frgoet about it. All they're probably looking for is some income tax you might owe them .. your explanation is not very detailed. Good luck.
