Gynotician: A politician who feels more qualified than women and their doctors to make women's health care decisions.
Gynotician: A politician who feels an unmarried celibate mythological ascetic called Jesus, who's understood to have been born of a virgin, is qualified to lecture on birth control.
In response to an abortion restriction bill, Kentucky representative Mary Lou Marzian has introduced a bill allowing Viagra and other erectile-dysfunction drugs to be prescribed only to married men, and only with the spouse's written permission. The man would also be required to visit the doctor twice, and "make a sworn statement with his hand on a Bible that he will only use a prescription for a drug for erectile dysfunction when having sexual relations with his current spouse."
Ms. Marzian told the New York Times: "I thought if we’re going to insert ourselves into women’s most private health care decisions, then we should insert ourselves into men’s most private health care decisions, as well."
