Sen. Nina Turner's Viagra Bill Mandates Psych Exams For the Menz, Heh

Pro Choice Democratic State Senator Nina Turner (D-Ohio) is taking care of the menz by giving them a taste of their own insufferable medicine.

Since men are apparently incapable of making good health decisions, Senator Nina Turner is going to help the poor doods out:
Ohio State Senator Nina Turner (D) has proposed legislation requiring that men looking to buy erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra receive a psychological evaluation, a measure she said Wednesday she proposed out of appreciation.

“The men in our lives, including members of the General Assembly, generously devote time to fundamental female reproductive issues — the least we can do is return the favor,” she quipped in a statement Thursday. “It is crucial that we take the appropriate steps to shelter vulnerable men from the potential side effects of these drugs.”

The proposal is Turner’s latest response to state Republican tactics like the “Heartbeat Bill,” a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade that would have outlawed abortions as soon as a fetus’ heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy, and a Republican committee’s vote last month to put Planned Parenthood at the bottom of the priority list for state funding.

Earlier this year, Turner also introduced a bill requiring men be certified as impotent by a sexual partner and undergo sex therapy before getting a Viagra prescription.
