Jessica Farrar, a Democrat politician in Texas has filed a legislation that would impose a fine of $100 to the men for masturbating unless it is done in a sanctioned session at a hospital or clinic, provided that the resulting semen would be stored “for the purposes of conception for a current or future wife”. This bill has received its first reading in the House of Representatives. of Texas.
As a part of an ongoing campaign against discriminatory health laws against women, Jessica Farrar created this “Man’s Right To Know Act” to highlight how women have been affected by targeted healthcare legislation in her state, particularly relating to abortion. According to the bill, any “unregulated masturbatory emissions outside of a woman’s vagina, or created outside of a health or medical facility, will be charged a $100 civil penalty for each emission, and will be considered an act against an unborn child, and failing to preserve the sanctity of life.”
However (as a relief to a big number of the ‘mankind’) Ms Farrar is not entirely serious. She brought the bill as a satire to the prevalent system in Texas where women have been affected by targeted healthcare legislations, particularly relating to abortion.
She claimed that this bill mirrors the situation of women in Texas when it comes to healthcare laws. She also insists that any doctor providing a vasectomy or prescribing Viagra must first read a ‘Man’s Right to Know’ booklet with the patient as a mimic to the abortion laws. In general, Texan doctors are obligated to do the same with any woman who is considering an abortion, which she refers as a mechanism to create a ‘guilty feeling’ so the woman might have second thoughts in her opinion.
The House of Representatives of Texas is currently controlled by a Republican majority, and the state has some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country due to its conservative Christian culture.
