A modest proposal 

These Republicans, thankfully, have made these decisions for us and have written them into law.

I’m so thankful for not having to make these decisions for myself. In fact, I propose that similar laws be passed in Oklahoma to protect men’s reproductive health. How about a law that requires men to visit a sex therapist, undergo a cardiac stress test and get their sexual partner to sign a notarized affidavit confirming impotency to get a prescription for Viagra and other erectile-dysfunction drugs?

The law should also require men who take such drugs to be continually tested for heart problems and receive counseling.

In conclusion, wouldn’t it be great to legislate both women’s health and men’s health? I would call that “equal justice under the law.”
