A Kentucky state lawmaker wants to make a point with her new bill related to Viagra.

The state adopted another bill last week requiring women to see a doctor before they can have an abortion.

On Thursday, Democrat Mary Lou Marzian countered with a similar bill for men who need Viagra or related drugs.

They would have to be married, see a doctor twice, and have a written approval from their spouses to get the drug.

Men would also sign a sworn statement that they'll use the drug only to have sex with their spouses.

"I started thinking, 'How would this body of men, there are 80 men in the House, feel if they were subjected to the same kind of government interference in their medical private decisions,'" Marzian says.

Marzan says the requirement to use erectile-dysfunction pills only with spouses makes perfect sense, because state house conservatives are said to be family values-oriented.
