A Texas congresswoman introduced a satirical bill that turns anti-abortion rhetoric on men

A Texas lawmaker has proposed a "Man's Right to Know Act," a satirical bill that would fine men for masturbating and impose "informed consent" requirements for Viagra prescriptions and vasectomies, The Texas Tribune reports. Rep. Jessica Farrar says men should undergo the same "unnecessary" and "invasive" procedures as women seeking abortions. She argues that masturbating is a "waste," as semen should be used only "for creating more human life."
