Where Is The Men’S Reproductive Health Bill?

Editor:

A bill requiring women to discuss their reproductive health care with employers before they can receive insurance benefits to cover birth control has passed the Arizona House and is now ready for consideration by the Senate.

One may wonder when we will see the bill requiring men to discuss their reproductive health care with employers before they can receive insurance benefits to cover type 5 phosphodiesterase (PDE5) inhibitors such as Viagra, Levitra and Cialis.

There appears to be instances when men are using such medications for recreation rather than procreation. Perhaps we need a law that requires any man seeking this type of health care compensation to provide legal documentation indicating that he is married, desires to father children, and will assume full responsibility for the care of all of his children until they reach adulthood.

Employers should not have to pay for men having fun and the state of Arizona should not have to pay for unwanted children.

Let's stop the sham. If you don't want to have babies but do want to have sex for pleasures sake, why is that a health issue? That is a personal choice issue and is not going to get my tax dollars to support it if I can help it. Men who need viagra because they want children is still a personal choice issue and shouldn't get my tax dollars to support. Couples who choose to have sex for pleasures sake and it results in pregnancy have some serious decisions to make about the future. They can go forward with the thought that can kill a heartbeat before it has a chance to experience life, they can choose to raise the child into an educated responsible adult, or they can give the child away. Whatever their decision, my tax dollars should not support it period. How precious do you believe your life is? How hard are you willing to fight to live? What makes you think any other living thing feels differently, in or out of the womb.

Men who are so old they need Viagra to have sex aren't interested in having babies. Well said Susan, These old men who keep trying to rule over women are relics.
