Texas lawmaker proposes $100 fine for men who masturbate

The bill, in case it's not clear yet, is a send off on antiabortion legislation, particularly in Texas.

"The state of Texas has interfered with the doctor-patient relationship", Farrar said, addressing what she considers too much regulation of women's health. That isn't their objective. Failing that, she said, "maybe the people who vote for them will and they will make a change in who they vote for". Like the pamphlets targeted at misinforming and discouraging women, men would be required to read a "Men's Right to Know" booklet regarding potential risks and concerns related to vasectomies, colonoscopies, and erectile dysfunction prescriptions. Instead of relying on what she calls "bad science", like the kind in "A Woman's Right To Know", Farrar says we should be looking at actual ways to help women.

To provide men a similar experience to women, Farrar's bill calls for a "medically-unnecessary digital rectal exam and magnetic resonance imagining of the rectum".

"As if every woman has not thought about this [abortion]". "Further, the citations in this booklet point to research from a disputed methodology to find such an association, or cite studies that explicitly say there is no association between abortion and protection against breast cancer". However, she wants it to send a serious message about the inequities in the laws that regulate men's and women's health. On top of all that, the proposed HB4260 would also have the state keep a registry of private hospitals and organizations that promote male abstinence, offer doctors to supervise masturbation (!) and store semen for future conception purposes.

"A lot of people find the bill amusing", Farrar told KOCO News. "What's not amusing are the obstacles that Texas women face every day, that were placed there by legislatures making it very hard for them to access health care".

Farrar did not file this bill in the hopes that it would pass - in no universe would it ever pass.

Farrar is unswayed, noting in an interview with the paper that supporters of President Trump feel encouraged and "are on fire now". Comedian Sarah Silverman said sperm cells are alive, and so spraying them anywhere except inside a woman's vagina is tantamount to killing the unborn.

Women's rights groups fear that another planned measure, ostensibly to shield physicians from "wrongful birth" lawsuits, will lead to some doctors lying to their patients about the health of the fetus if they felt that revealing problems might encourage the patient to opt for an abortion.

Finally, it is widely believed that Bluetooth 5.0 functionality will be included with the Galaxy S8 when it arrives on the market. There were rumors of Samsung Galaxy S8 of getting the Exynos 9 chip and to have dual cameras, but the leaks were not confirmed.

Jessica Farrar, a Democratic member of the Texas House of Representatives, submitted House Bill number 4260 last week.

"Oh, let me tell you about that".

While purposefully pointless bills like this one may make abortion-rights supporters cheer, all this does is make their arguments look even more ridiculous. Oklahoma Sen. Constance Johnson proposed a "spilled semen" amendment to a personhood bill introduced in her state. Tony Tinderholt, from Arlington, told the Tribune.

Farrar admitted on Facebook her bill is "satirical", but the intent behind it is very serious. Her bill ignores basic biological facts about human life and abortion.

She defended her bill, saying.

Others in Texas, though, seem to be fond of the bill.

Texas is still churning out anti-abortion legislation.
