Barbara Boxer: If We Have An Abortion Rider, Would We Have One For Viagra?

Why do male legislators make women’s reproductive rights an issue in the health care reform debate,  but not do the same thing when it comes to men’s reproductive rights?

(via Think Progress)


BOXER: There’s nothing in this amendment that says if a man some days wants to buy Viagra, for example, that his pharmaceutical coverage cannot cover it, that he has to buy a rider. I wouldn’t support that. And they shouldn’t support going after a woman using her own private funds for her reproductive health care. Is it fair to say to a man you’re going to have to buy a rider to buy Viagra and this will be public information that could be accessed? No, I don’t support that. I support a man’s privacy, just as I support a woman’s privacy.
