    What's fair is fair. And what's right is right. Right?

    Last month in Oklahoma, State Senator Constance Johnson, a Democrat, introduced an amendment to the so-called “personhood” bill that would declare it an act against unborn children to “waste sperm.”

    In Illinois, Rep. Kelly Cassidy introduced an amendment to a mandatory ultrasound bill that would require men to watch a graphic video about the side effects of Viagra before being able to get a prescription for it. “If they’re serious about us not being able to make our own health care decisions, then I’m just as serious about them not being able to make theirs,” she said.

    In Wilmington, Delaware, the state’s largest city, the city council passed a resolution earlier this month, calling on the state legislature and U.S. Congress to pass laws granting “personhood” rights to eggs and sperm. The resolution was written by Loretta Walsh, a councilwoman, as a response to the current battles over health care access for women.

    A bill in Virginia sought to require rectal exams and cardiac stress tests for men seeking Viagra, while another in Georgia would limit vasectomies for men.
