This is a classic, and entirely appropriate - the "boner bill":

Want Viagra? Ohio lawmaker wants men to get second opinion

By Sevil Omer, msnbc.com



COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Men in the Buckeye State seeking prescription drugs for erectile dysfunction such as Viagra will have a tougher time getting their little blue pills if one Ohio lawmaker has her way.



State Sen. Nina Turner, a Cleveland Democrat, this week introduced Senate Bill 307, which is aimed at protecting men from the risks of PDE-5 inhibitors -- drugs like Viagra that are commonly used to treat symptoms of erectile dysfunction -- in an effort to “guide men to make the right decision for their bodies.”



Turner told msnbc.com on Thursday that the measure was her way of sending a message to the Legislature in response to Ohio’s so-called Heartbeat Bill, which is now pending in the state Senate. That measure would ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected – sometimes as early as in the sixth week of pregnancy.



“I’m fed up over all this concern, consideration and conversation over the feeble and fragile minds of women who are unable to make decisions on their own,” Turner said. “I thought it was time to show our men some love and some regulation. It was time to level the playing field for all.”



Turner said she started working on SB 307 about three weeks ago, and made sure the language mimicked the abortion legislation.



Turner’s bill would require doctors to get a second opinion from a psychological professional to verify that a patient has a medical reason for the medication.



It also would require doctors to inform patients in writing of the risks involved in taking the drugs; require that records about prescriptions for erectile dysfunction be retained in a patient’s file for at least seven years; and require men to sign a document acknowledging the risks of taking the medication, just like the anti-abortion bill does, she said.



Turner said she has received hundreds of supportive of her cause since she introduced the bill on Tuesday. She said she expected her bill to pass, just like the Heartbeat Bill did in the Ohio House in June.



By implementing more intensive screenings before prescribing the medication and requiring outpatient educational services, we can do more to prevent the potential side effects linked to PDE-5 inhibitors,” Turner said in a press release announcing the bill. “We must advocate for the traditional family, protect the sanctity of procreation and ensure that all men using PDE-5 inhibitors are healthy, stable, and educated about their options -- including celibacy as a viable life choice. This legislation will do just that.”






If god wants you to have erections, he'll make it happen. Clearly, Viagra is in contravention of god's will.





Some people have suggested a mandatory transrectal ultrasound before a man can get Viagra.....each and every time, just in case the erectile dysfunction is due to an enlarged prostate or cancer. Men are much too simple to possibly understand the health consequences of erectile dysfunction and really need the big finger of government to ensure they truly understand the issue.

Mods, could you move this to the abortion forum please? It probably should be there.

Two more such bills (I love the 2nd one):



Illinois state Rep. Kelly Cassidy (D) introduced an amendment to a bill requiring ultrasounds before a woman can get an abortion that would require men to watch an explicit video about the side-effects of erectile dysfunction drugs.



Missouri state Rep. Stacey Newman (D) introduced a bill that would allow a man to obtain a vasectomy only when not doing so would protect him from serious injury or death.

It's not just men who need the big finger of government to protect them against themselves.

Viagra Helps Women Combat the Sexual Side Effects of Antidepressants

The little blue pills that have given so many men a sexual boost may be of some use to women as well. A small study looked at women whose sex lives had suffered as a side effect of taking antidepressants, and found that Viagra increased their sexual sensation and orgasms.



However, the pills didn’t boost the women’s sex drive, leading some experts to question whether the medication could help most women. “Viagra is not a desire drug. It dilates the blood vessels, allowing intercourse to occur,” said Rutgers University psychology professor Barry R. Komisaruk, an expert on sexual dysfunction. [Sexual health expert Leonard] Derogatis agreed: “The most prevalent female sexual dysfunction is not arousal but desire. Viagra doesn’t have a direct effect on that,” he said [Baltimore Sun].



In the study, reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers gave either Viagra or a placebo to 98 women who had been diagnosed with major depression and were taking a class of antidepressants called selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which often have debilitating sexual side effects [Los Angeles Times]. Of the women who were given Viagra, 72 percent reported improved sexual function, compared to only 27 percent in the placebo group....
