Lawmaker Puts Gender Equity Into Anti-Abortion Bill: Rectal Exams Required for Viagra

Virginia State Sen. Janet Howell (D-Fairfax) responded to a bill requiring women to endure ultrasounds before having abortions with an amendment requiring men "to have a rectal exam and a cardiac stress test before obtaining a prescription for erectile dysfunction medication."

Goddess, I love this woman! We desperately need more women in office like Senator Janet Howell:
