Senator Janet Howell, Baddass Bitch of the Day

To protest a bill that would require women to undergo an ultrasound before having an abortion, Virginia State Sen. Janet Howell (D-Fairfax) on Monday attached an amendment that would require men to have a rectal exam and a cardiac stress test before obtaining a prescription for erectile dysfunction medication.

“We need some gender equity here,” she told HuffPost. “The Virginia senate is about to pass a bill that will require a woman to have totally unnecessary medical procedure at their cost and inconvenience. If we’re going to do that to women, why not do that to men?”

§ One Response to Found on Tumblr

  • I think it is disturbing that there are a number of bills being proposed around the country that will unfairly and unequally place women under personal and physical scrutiny in order to have access to birth control and abortion, to which they are legally entitled. I’d be interested to find out how men would respond to this infringement on their personal liberties.
