    Possibly because it's elective? I think health care providers should be allowed to drop such elective coverage, creates competition wear if you are a single woman and prefer your sex unprotected, you can find an insurer who will.

    I'm forced to undergo unnecessary steps all the goddamn time. The justification has always been that if you don't want to go through the unnecessary steps, don't do the action. It always fascinates me how that logic rings so very true until a specific group happens to be stricken by it.

    While I don't agree with the ultrasound legislation, which seems irrelevant since that was in Oklahoma and this is Ohio, I think this is the completely wrong way to approach this issue and only succeeds in being confrontational. Which, of course, will greatly appeal to the base you agree with, though it will be less than effective with those who don't.

    Democratic Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner is the third female lawmaker to introduce a bill that would limit men's access to Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs to make a statement about the dozens of anti-abortion bills that have passed statehouses around the country over the last year.
    Turner is opposed to a proposed bill that would prohibit abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can happen as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. The Dayton Daily News reports that Turner's bill would mandate that men seeking Viagra be "tested for heart problems, receive counseling about possible side effects and receive information about 'pursuing celibacy as a viable lifestyle choice.'"
    I don't really get why this is happening. ED drugs are taken by elderly men to satisfy their wives.

    The only justification I can imagine is women are threatening to cheat. In case young'uns didn't know, men's sex drives tend to plummet as we get older.
    This is awesome! The statement these lawmakers are making is of their supreme idiocy.

    In other words, contrary to your earlier assertion, Republicans AREN'T just concerned about the religious aspect.

    What's the updated version of Reagan's old quip about the scariest words in the English language? "Hi, I'm from the goverment and I'm here to help stick a 10" want in your vagina."

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    My understanding is that lawmakers are supposed to represent all of their constituents, not just those of a particular race, religion or sex.

Now if a man does have a problem getting it up, then he should not only supply a legal document from a doctor and his wife, but also be subjugated to an invasive rectal exam to see if it is true. After all that is what the GOP wants to do with women in some states..

    They should also target male masturbation, since that is killing babies as well and deserve just as harsh treatment as women getting an abortion.
    This would hurt women FAR more than it would hurt men, methinks. The only reason I would take viagra is to satisfy my wife. I can get an orgasm with or without. So the point is flatter than a brick.

    In this case they're only representing women who can have children, and not even all women per-se. So this leaves out most women over age 45/50, pre-teen girls, and any woman who is infertile for any reason.

    .....but they call me the woman hater
