Health Care Bill (HB 396) sponsored by Kentucky Rep. and nurse Mary Lou Marzian is gaining national attention. Marzian’s “Viagra” House Bill 396 was formed in response to Kentucky’s latest majority male sponsored anti-abortion efforts. These efforts include the signed Senate Bill 4, “Informed consent” and state senate approved Senate Bill 152, ”Pre Abortion Ultrasound” This bill would  require in person day prior consultations and narrated ultrasounds of abortion recipients.

House Bill 396 would require erectile dysfunction medication seeking patients to complete multiple doctor visits, be legally married, provide documented spousal consent to medication and the undergoing of an oath not to use said medication with none other than the consenting spouse, according to the Kentucky Legislator website.

Analogies between women’s reproductive rights and male erection aid aren’t perfect, although the comparison has been presented in numerous forms across the nation.

Oklahoma saw the promotion of “every sperm is sacred” and “personhood at conception” legislation, which would’ve recreated laws banning oral or anal sexual acts, along with masturbation by outlawing and defining semen deposits outside vaginas as criminal acts against the unborn children.

Marzian took jabs at pro-life/gun proponents by expressing intent to sponsor efforts requiring prospective gun buyers to receive in person day prior gun violence counseling. Marzian said her bills are family value based but does not believe they will pass. “I want to protect these men from themselves,” said Marzian.
