Georgia State Rep. Yasmin Neal has introduced House Bill 1116 that proposes limiting vasectomies for men, except in cases where not getting one would result in death or “impairment of a major bodily function.”
The anti-vasectomy bill was a response to a bill that would punish abortions performed after the 20th week of pregnancy with prison sentences between one and 10 years.
“The day has come where men should feel the same pressure and invasion of privacy that women have faced for years,” Yasmin said a statement.
“I have introduced this legislation because it is the purpose of the General Assembly to assert an invasive state interest in the reproductive habits of the men of this state and substitute the will of the government over the will of adult men.”
“This bill states that vasectomies can be performed to avert the death of a man or to avert serious risk of substantial or irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function of the man. This bill mimics the abortion bills throughout the nation, and just like the abortion bills interfere with a woman’s right to choose, it’s only fair that the General Assembly debate the men’s right to choose, as well.”
