“Texas Rep. Jessica Farrar Trolls GOP By Proposing $100 Fine For Men Who Masturbate”


HUFFINGTON POST

“A Democratic lawmaker in Texas has proposed legislation that would fine men $100 for masturbating and require rectal exams before they get a vasectomy, a colonoscopy or a Viagra prescription.

State Rep. Jessica Farrar, of Houston, called her bill “satirical,” but said it was meant to highlight the struggles women faced while accessing health care under the restrictive reproductive laws pushed by the state’s GOP-led legislature.

Her bill promotes similarly invasive restrictions on men, including the fine for “emissions outside a woman’s vagina” which “will be considered an act against an unborn child, and failing to preserve the sanctity of life.” The bill, filed Friday, also requires storage of the “emissions” for future conception.”  MORE

“The Best Gift You Can Give A Woman This Holiday Season? Her Reproductive Rights”


HUFFINGTON POST

“When Donald Trump was running for president, he adopted an anti-choice platform and also pledged to defund the nonprofit reproductive health services group Planned Parenthood.

Now, women are doing whatever it takes to ensure their reproductive rights while Trump is in office.

Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley, Planned Parenthood’s chief medical officer, told Daily Show correspondent Desi Lydic last week that there was a 900 percent increase in appointments for Intrauterine Devices (IUDs) in the days after Trump was elected.

Unlike other forms of birth control, the IUD is inserted into the uterus and prevents pregnancies for between seven and 12 years.

“If you do the math, that’s two Trump terms,” is how one woman explained it to Lydic.”  MORE
