Democrat female lawmaker introduces bill requiring wife’s consent for husbands to buy Viagra

And Republicans are accused of legislating morality?

In a move that is fundamentally wrong on so many levels, an omnipotent moral busybody Democratic lawmaker in Kentucky has filed a bill that would require men to get a note from their wives before they can purchase Viagra, according to the Courier-Journal.

State Rep. Mary Lou Marzian, D-Louisville, told the newspaper that the legislation “is about family values” and is meant “to protect these men from themselves.”

HB 396 specifies only married men can obtain Viagra and requires “a man to make a sworn statement with his hand on a Bible that he will only use a prescription for a drug for erectile dysfunction when having sexual relations with his current spouse.”

It may be one of the few times in recorded history that a Democrat lawmaker included the Bible in legislation, aside from efforts to ban the Word of God.

Turns out, Marzian filed the bill as a response to several anti-abortion measures in the current legislative session, to include an “informed consent” bill that requires women seeking an abortion to get counseling beforehand, which has already been signed into law by Gov. Matt Bevin after passing last week.

Or, in other words, it’s a frivolous, smart-aleck bill intended to goad her male colleagues — at the expense of taxpayers, who pay her salary.

Marzian, an abortion-rights supporter, admitted to the Courier-Journal that she was protesting the predominantly male General Assembly intervening into women’s health.

“Do we really want a bunch or legislators interfering in private, personal, medical decisions?” she asked.

The lawmaker said she also plans to file an informed consent-type bill for potential gun buyers, requiring them to get counseling from victims of gun violence before purchasing a firearm.

    And the government needs to involved in this why? That is the problem with legislators, they are called Lawmakers and feel obligated to make new laws no matter how ridiculous.

    1. Aril says:

      Just as ridiculous as legislators telling a doctor how to treat her female patient.

      1. Jeff S Howard says:

        Care to expand on your comment..it has no context. Did you read it on a Bumper Sticker?

        1. Aril says:

          Not really. You may disagree with my point of view but you know exactly what I am referring to. You try and dismiss my viewpoint by hinting I read it in a bumper sticker. If there was every more proof that people like you should not be legislating morality or anything else for that matter. This is why this country is such a mess. You could have disagreed but that would require intelligent discourse and I suspect you get all of you political beliefs from bumper stickers. See how dismissive of you I just was. The difference is you provided the proof for my belief. You could try again but I doubt you will. Tell me is using facts why these are two completely different situations. I know you can propable do it. It might make your head hurt. I know thinking is hard work. Wait I was dismissive of your intelligence just like you were of my opinion. Sorry. Can not help it. Just too easy. Please try again. Please. I suspect you will just post something derogatory about me. Who knows maybe you will surprise me. Maybe even course me to change my mind. Anything is possible.

          1. Jeff S Howard says:

            People like you? For someone decrying being judgemental, that comment itself is judgemental and could be a bit racist!

          2. Aril says:

            What race are you? But now you are starting to see my point. That is what you comment was all about judgment. Still would love you to answer the question. One can hope. But

          3. Jeff S Howard says:

            First, it is racist to ask that question. You are not doing very well. Second, back to the article. Which medication does a wife have to have her husband’s approval for? You went off on a tangent that had nothing to do with the article or my original comment. But, you were compelled by your myopic view to respond in a totally sexist manner.

          4. Aril says:

            This obviously is a waste of my time. Arguing with halfwits is not my idea of a good time. You might not realize what you are typing one minute to the next but since you brought race randomly into the conversation that had nothing to do with race. “You people” refer to half widths and Dimwits. If you consider halfwits a race by all means consider my comment racist otherwise sulk back to your basement your mommy is calling you. Why waste my time when you don’t even have the intellectual ability to make an argument based on anything other than derogatory remarks. Other than pathetic remarks that obviously are trolling you offer no intellectual stimulation. I do not spend my life trying to get upvotes. I have a life and I am goining to proceed to leave you to your basement. The good thing is that can feel free to spewing any remarks you want. Please continue this thread. Argue with yourself. You surely can’t argue with me. The only way you can defeat any argument I make is for me not to make any. Sad but this country is being ruined by low information voters who can not even articulate an argument they claim to believe in. It’s been a fun exercise. Maybe we will tangle horns a month from now. I do not even now which blog I am posting on. Good luck in life loser. That was therapeutic. Have he satisfaction of the last word. I can be generous to half wits like your self. Someone needs to throw you a bone.

            An entire rant of nothing but 3rd Grade School Yard name calling. Excellent! “When the debate is lost, slander is the tool of the loser”. Socrates.

            Children are incapable of intelligent debate, as Aril has proven.

          8. tedlv says:

            Why is his race important? Are you a racist as well as a sponsor of murdering babies?

          9. tedlv says:

            Simply put, abortion is murder. A human being is killed during an abortion. Abortion is not a “woman’s right”, it’s flat out homicide.

          10. Aril says:

            I respect this viewpoint. It is not based in Old Testament teachings but I respect it. Unfortunately, the bible and the Supreme Court disagree with you. Jesus never talked about abortion because he and all the other religious scholars of the time believed that a fetus is not a person. This was the universal religious belief at the time. The bible considers the killing of a baby murder and the killing of a fetus a much lesser crime deserving of a lesser penalty.making abortion completely illegal would actually violate my religion freedom of people who practice what is written in the Hebrew Sciptures. I realize people have put a different spin on the sequel but I will stick with the original word of G-d. I wish people could just be honest wit themselves and others. Things they decide are wrong should be banned and things they personally like should be encouraged. It’s the concept of Freedom for me but not for thee that we see so often preached by fake libertarians and by tea party folk. I personally would like to see us prevent the need for anyone to every have an abortion. But legislating morality means abstinence only and the research clearly demonstrates that such teaching does not work. I guess the bible is good when it back up our beliefs and ignores when it goes against our beliefs.

            You are deranged.

          12. RC says:

            I pray that you will find the following web-page to help you understand the truth of GOD’s WORD and the position of the “Pro-Life” thought and what we hold as sacred. I’m not sure what book or verses you are referring to when you say “he and all the other religious scholars of the time believed that a fetus is not a person”, but I pray this web-page will enlighten you.

            Where in the Bible does it say what you claim it does?

          14. Vassiliki says:

            They seem to forget that half that baby is also a man’s! Without the male there would be no baby…so a man has a right to say if he wants his baby aborted….of course that is if the woman knows who the baby’s father is.

          15. Shocked_and_Amazed✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ says:

            Some feel like a woman should be able to kill a man’s child without asking his permission because she’s running the incubator.
            But then some people believe that infanticide should be ok until the child is 5.
            I don’t understand these people

          16. Vassiliki says:

            I really like that saying…”because she’s running the incubator”!!! I have been saying the same thing that it also the man’s baby as well but he does not have a say in it.

      2. LittleRoot_48 says:

        Just as ridiculous as not allowing the father of a baby to have a voice in deciding if the baby is to be aborted.

  2. Aril says:

    I am not sure what the big deal is. Sorry I am being silly. Abortion is a sin against God but adultery is okay if the man is a Christian. He can always repent when he gets caught. Pretty sure the bible actually has a lot more to say about adultery than abortion. The stand belief among religious scholars during the time of Jesus was that death of a fetus was not the death of a person. I think Leviticus sets a standard where killing a fetus is a much lesser crime and than killing a baby that has been born. So I would think this bill is right up the alley of those folks who want to legislate morality.

    1. tedlv says:

      You do understand that abortion was very uncommon or nonexistent in Biblical times, right? But the Bible specifically says abortion is a sin. “Thou shalt not kill”, one of the ten commandments, forbids abortion.

      1. Aril says:

        You are correct Leviticus does not talk about abortion but it definitely touches on personhood and there is not dispute that people in the time of Jesus did not consider a fetus a person. It is spelled out in the Old Testament. Why do you think G-d insisted on. Lesser punishment for killing of a fetus but made killing of a baby a capital crime. I would love if you could share your religious teachings to explain this. Or did G-d change his mind and now considers it murder. The bible treats the killing of a fetus as a crime against property. There is no denying this by anyone who has actually studied the Old Testament. I was just wondering what changed between the time of Jesus and the time the Catholic Church was running the show.

  3. tsigili says:

    Well, let’s just introduce a bill prohibiting women from having permission to buy anything, without their husband’s approval.

    1. Darryl Trantham says:

      Shoes, permission to buy Shoes!!! Women would be marching in the streets & throwing high heels at the dumb lawmaking woman!! LoL

  4. BTeboe says:

    I see her point. I think it drove the point home.

    1. tedlv says:

      That was a very penetrating comment.

  5. DebraJMSmith says:

    If Republicans were smart, they would pass the bill in a heartbeat! –The woman is being a smarty-pants. But considering that the drug can make make a man more sexually aggressive, I think a wife should be involved. And if it were to get passed, no man who is not married will be able to get the drug. That would fix her.

      PROOF WHY WOMEN WERE DENIED THE RIGHT TO VOTE WHEN THIS COUNTRY WAS FORMED.

        1. Karma's Janitor says:

          yah yah lol
          Its probably why I haven’t had an American gif since I was in the 6th grade. im 28 now
          living outside the US opened my eyes

          1. DebraJMSmith says:

            aww… You might be surprised to find out how normal that is. I hear many stories about many people in your age-group, including my own two daughters.

          2. Karma's Janitor says:

            Its fairly common that I’ve seen. We moved from Missouri to Orlando when I was in middle school. Parents divorced. My Dad lived all over the world. He took me with him when school allowed it. Young women in Europe don’t have an attitude.
            Funny thing his now my Dad has a Romanian wife who is young and she treats me better than my own mom.

          3. DebraJMSmith says:

            Well, I sure do wish you the best in finding your love of your life. :o)

    2. Vassiliki says:

      Then a law should also be passed that only her husband should have the key to her chastity belt…so if he can’t get it up she can’t spread her legs….case closed!

  6. Concerned says:

    Good ole Kentucky education at work.

  7. tedlv says:

    Dare to be stupid.

  8. Shocked_and_Amazed✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ says:

    Does anyone believe Hillary would give Bill permission?

    1. Vassiliki says:

      HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

  9. LittleRoot_48 says:

    Well then perhaps a woman should have to get consent from the baby’s father before getting an abortion. After all, it is HIS baby, too.

  10. gbonkers666 says:

    Well, did you say that lady’s picture? She’s probably upset that her husband is having sex with someone prettier and nicer.
