Talk about walking a mile in someone else’s shoes! In reaction to the passage of anti-abortion legislation in the Georgia House that would ban the procedure once a doctor can detect a heartbeat in the womb, a state lawmaker is planning to file a bill that among other things would make it a crime for men to have sex without a condom.

Calling her proposed legislation the “testicular bill of rights” — which is curious since any rights it guarantees are uterine — State Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick tweeted on Monday, “You want some regulation of bodies and choice? Done!”

The bill would not only make it a crime of “aggravated assault” for a man to have sex without a condom but would require him to seek permission from his partner before obtaining a prescription for Viagra and require DNA testing at 6 weeks after pregnancy so that the biological father could begin paying child support.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the bill “also includes provisions that would require fetuses ‘at any stage of development’ to be included in the state’s population count and allow parents to claim fetuses on their taxes as dependents.”

Kendrick concedes that the House Bill 481 is intended more as a “modest proposal” than as a piece of legislation with any hope of passing, but it’s unclear in what way the law she is opposing, which protects a human life, punishes women.
