REPORT: Alabama lawmaker proposes law forcing men to get a vasectomy at 50
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
An Alabama state lawmaker proposed a law that would require men to get vasectomies within one month of turning 50 years old or once their third biological child is born in response to legislation banning abortion in the state.
“Under existing law, there are no restrictions on the reproductive rights of men,” the bill’s synopsis reads.”This bill would require a man to undergo a vasectomy within one month of his 50th birthday or the birth of his third biological child, whichever comes first.”
The article goes on to state the following:
State Rep. Rolanda Hollis (D) introduced the legislation Thursday in response to an abortion bill passed by the state legislature last year that resulted in a near-total ban on abortion.
“We can’t put all the responsibility on women. Men need to be responsible also,” Hollis declared.
Alabama Rep. Rolanda Hollis: The vasectomy bill “is to neutralize the abortion ban bill …it always takes two to tango. We can’t put all the responsibility on women.”

One Twitter user has posted a reminder that Hollis is the same lawmaker who was arrested on a domestic violence charge in September of last year.
