Precious Bodily Fluids

Precious Bodily Fluids

It's all about life:

Sen. Paul Gazelka (R), the bill’s sponsor, said Viagra is a “wonderful drug” that “helps create life.” RH Reality Check’s Robin Marty asked Gazelka to clarify his comments about Viagra, and he said in response:
comparing Viagra to RU-486 was comparing apples and oranges or more like comparing life and death. Viagra is a wonderful medical advancement in that can help couples with sexual disfunction issues…it can even help in producing life. RU486 always destroys life by taking the life of the unborn child.

The silly vessel will get over it if her future and health is irrevocably compromised by forced childbirth, but no man should ever have to do without sexual pleasure. These precious bodily fluids are life, even for the unlucky men of a certain age who use it with vessels who are no longer able to conceive. It's "wonderful." We should celebrate!

I wonder how this fellow feels about birth control, which last I heard was a ridiculously frivolous expense and employers should not be required to provide insurance that pays for it --- even though insurance companies would absorb the cost. I'm guessing he's against it. He did endorse Rick Santorum, after all. But then Viagra helps men and we can't rob them of their "wonderful" pleasure. The sluts? Not so much.

Update: Georgia just passed a law outlawing abortions after 20 weeks with no exception in the case the vessel got pregnant as a result of rape or incest.
