Bill Would Restrict Erectile Dysfunction Drugs in SC

Bill Would Restrict Erectile Dysfunction Drugs in SC

A man in South Carolina who wants an erectile dysfunction drug like Viagra or Cialis would have to jump through some new hoops to get it, under a bill pre-filed in the state House of Representatives. Rep. Mia McLeod, D-Columbia, says she filed the bill because of growing frustration with anti-abortion bills filed every year, and wanting men in the legislature to know what it feels like to have their reproductive rights targeted.

“I purposely tried to make it as invasive, as intrusive, as hypocritical, and unnecessary as possible to make the point,” she says.

Under her bill, a man would have to wait 24 hours between getting a prescription and getting an erectile dysfunction drug, similar to waiting periods for women getting abortions. He would have to get a signed affidavit from a sexual partner attesting to the fact that he has erectile dysfunction. He would have to see a sex therapist, and he would have to undergo cardiac stress tests every three months to make sure his heart is healthy enough for sex.

“Oh, I don’t think it’ll pass,” Rep. McLeod says. “I mean, we’re in a male-dominated legislature, of course, and I really just want to broaden the discussion and get people thinking about and talking about some of the issues that women face who are seeking legal abortion services in this state.”
