New bill requires men to get permission from their wives before buying Viagra

A Kentucky lawmaker Rep. Mary Lou Marzian has proposed a bill requiring men who want Viagra, a drug used for erectile dysfunction, to get a signed note from their wives before their doctors can prescribe them the drug. The bill, sponsored by the Democrat, would also allow only married men to obtain such drugs.

In the proposed law, men will also visit a doctor or healthcare practitioner twice, on separate days, before obtaining Viagra or any other erectile dysfunction drug.
“I want to protect these men from themselves,” Marzian said, the Courier-Journal reported “This is about family values,” she added.
The proposed law would also require “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.”
