The legislation by state Rep. Rolanda Hollis, D-Birmingham, says that a man will have to pay for the vasectomy “at his own expense."
Hollis said the bill is a response to last year’s abortion bill that passed the legislature and included a near-total ban on abortion.
“The vasectomy bill is to help with the reproductive system, and yes, it is to neutralize the abortion ban bill ... it always takes two to tango," she said. “We can’t put all the responsibility on women. Men need to be responsible also.”
I don't think this will pass, but I don't understand the point of this. How many guys 50 and over are fathering children?
