Georgia's “Testicular Bill of Rights” Would Require Note From Sex Partner for Men Seeking Viagra

March 12, 2019

A female lawmaker in Georgia is drafting a "testicular bill of rights" that would require men to get permission from their sex partners before obtaining Viagra. Democratic Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick's bill would also ban vasectomies, require a 24-hour waiting period for men to purchase porn or sex toys, categorize men having sex without a condom as "aggravated assault," and require men to undergo DNA testing by the time their partners are eight weeks pregnant--when they must also start paying child support. Kendrick's bill comes in response to HB 481, which the Georgia House of Representatives passed last week and which outlaws most abortions after six weeks--before many women even realize they might be pregnant. "I'm dead serious," Kendrick tells Rolling Stone. "If you’re going to legislate our bodies, then we have every right to propose legislation to regulate yours." Kendrick went viral on Monday when she tweeted a screengrab of a memo she sent her counsel that reads, "Subject line: Testicular 'Bill of Rights' Legislation. Importance: High. Good morning, please have the following legislation drafted.”
