Hat tip & request from 3 Chics commenter johnnie stallings Thank you, johnnie!
“please thread State Senator Nina Turner bill offer lawmaker a taste of their own medicine. The bill recommend a rectal examine physical for men before viagra can be given also their partner must have a written consent that they understand the side effects ect. there is also an on line petition you can sign… I love this site.”
Turner’s legislation includes provisions to document that the symptoms are not psychological in nature, and would guide men to make the right decision for their bodies. According to the press release, physicians would be required to obtain a second opinion from a psychological professional to verify that a patient has a true medical malady before the medication could be prescribed.
“The legislation follows the FDA’s recommendation that the evaluation of erectile dysfunction should include a determination of potential underlying causes and the identification of appropriate treatment following a complete medical assessment. Similar bills to more closely regulate reproductive health issues have been introduced in the state legislatures of Virginia, Oklahoma, Idaho, and most recently Pennsylvania.
“A prescription for medication of this kind should require an assessment that targets the nature of the problem—specifically to assess whether it’s psychological or physical,” said Turner by phone on Monday. “There are serious health risks and side effects associated with taking these treatments and I want to make sure that the fragile and vulnerable men of our country understand all of the factors before they take the drugs.” To that end, Turner’s legislature includes language to ensure men understand both the ramifications of their sexual health decisions, and, Turner said, “to make sure they understand that there are other options out there, whether they’re natural remedies or celibacy.”
“The men in the policy making positions of this country have spent a generous amount of time working to protect the well-being of women through their reproductive health,” said Turner, “I thought it was only fair that we look out for men in the same way.”
