Hear, hear for somebody finally expecting gender equality in requiring tests for procreation/reproductive choices!

The rectal probe used to be part of a prostate exam. The cardiac stress test actually makes sense because all the performance enhancement ads acknowledge that men should make sure that sexual activity won't place an undue strain on other organs.

I think it's a great ideal. If you want to force unnessesory medical test on me, then men need extra stuff to. So bend over & spread your cheeks.

Sounds like a kid who didn't get enough turns on the merry go round, Lol... But good, on both counts! Honestly, I totally forgot about the ultrasound bill re abortons, a move I am totally in favor of.

The untrasound thing is nonsense, there for no medical reason, only for obstruction of choice.

There are a few more things we could add to this particular idea... before receiving a viagra prescription, men would have to listen to doctors give *full disclosure* about the consequences of unprotected sex, and perhaps be required to undergo a four hour class on parenting, and... a 24 hour waiting period after they drop off their prescription at the pharmacy.

Oh, and driving across state lines to obtain viagra should be illegal. A sperm count test should be required every three months.

I would like to add another proviso. Since Viagra also affects their sex partner, that partner's consent should be required.

Actually, she was making a strong point about the ridiculousness of the ultrasound bill. If you play ridiculous with us, then so to with you.
