Did New Florida Law Ban Sex?
A law designed to outlaw beastiality in Florida was so poorly worded that it may have banned sex. (h/t Political Wire)
An act relating to sexual activities involving animals; creating s. 828.126, F.S.; providing definitions; prohibiting knowing sexual conduct or sexual contact with an animal; prohibiting specified related activities; providing penalties; providing that the act does not apply to certain husbandry, conformation judging, and veterinary practices; providing an effective date.
The chart here (which you can click to enlarge) was created by Southern Fried Scientist as a public service for the legislators in Florida who may not be familiar with the animal kingdom.
The law would take effect October 1 if it is signed by the governor.
However, Rick Hasen at Election Law Blog says the law does distinguish between “persons” and “animals.”Click here for reuse options!
