Democratic member of the South Carolina House of Representatives, Mia McLeod, filed a bill on December 10th calling for any man seeking to obtain a prescription for Viagra, Cialis, Levitra or other such erectile dysfunction drugs, to be required to obtain a notarized affidavit from his sexual partner, undergo a cardiac stress test, and receive sexual counseling.
McLeod admits in an interview with South Carolina’s Free Times that she’s basically trolling her colleagues who have proposed restrictions on abortion:
“Those who are adamant about introducing some type of abortion bill every session, that’s really what this is about — I’m just sick of it. We’ve got much bigger fish to fry. I just decided that until they could stay out my uterus I would refuse to stay out of their bedroom. All the things that they come up with are invasive… They’re not necessary. I just think it’s time for a little pushback on that end.”

Among the “invasive” requirements in McLeod’s proposed “pushback” legislation, men would be
-required to obtain a notorized affidavit “in which at least one of the patient’s sexual partners affirms that the patient has experienced symptoms of erectile dysfunction during the 90 days preceding the affidavit’s date.”
-required to submit to a cardiac stress test.
-required to receive “extensive written notification of the dangers of such drugs, followed by a 24-hour waiting period.”
-required to attend counselling sessions that include “resources for patients to pursue celibacy as a viable lifestyle choice.”
Though it’s a brilliant ploy, McLeod admits it’s not likely to fly:
“I don’t expect a whole lot to happen with this bill other than to put them on notice.”
Put ‘em on notice, Mia!
