Scientifically Clueless Pro-Abortion Legislator Wants to Fine Men for Masturbating as “Act Against Unborn Child”

A Texas state lawmaker’s new pro-abortion bill is doing what she created it to do – get attention.

The “satirical” Texas House Bill 4260, sponsored by state Rep. Jessica Farrar, would fine men $100 for masturbating and require the state to publish an informed consent booklet for men seeking a vasectomy, Viagra or a colonoscopy, among other things, according to The Hill.

The bill is Farrar’s protest to the abortion regulations passed in Texas in the past few years. She claims it would put the same restrictions on men that Texas abortion laws do on women.

“Although HB 4260 is satirical, there is nothing funny about current health care restrictions for women and the very real legislation that is proposed every legislative session,” Farrar, a Democrat, wrote on Facebook. “Women are not laughing at state-imposed regulations and obstacles that interfere with their ability to legally access safe healthcare, and subject them to fake science and medically unnecessary procedures.”

Her bill, which has no chance of passing, would prohibit ejaculation outside either a vagina or medical facility, in what it describes as an “act against an unborn child, and failing to preserve the sanctity of life,” according to the Independent. It also would provide conscience protections for doctors who do not want to perform a vasectomy or prescribe Viagra because of “personal, moralistic or religious beliefs.”

“What I would like to see is this make people stop and think,” Farrar told The Texas Tribune. “Maybe my colleagues aren’t capable of that, but the people who voted for them, or the people that didn’t vote at all, I hope that it changes their mind and helps them to decide what the priorities are.”

But pro-lifers say Farrar is the one who is isn’t thinking. Her bill ignores basic biological facts about human life and abortion.

As Daily Wire contributor Harry Khachatrian commented on Twitter:

It is disingenuous for Farrar to equate male masturbation and ejaculation to the intentional killing of a human life through abortion. A man’s sperm and a woman’s eggs are not separate, individual new life. Only when they are put together do they become a human being – a separate, living human entity with his or her own unique DNA. This is well established science.

“A sperm has twenty-three chromosomes; even though it is alive and can fertilize an egg, it can never make another sperm,” former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop wrote in 1979. “An egg also has twenty-three chromosomes, and it can never make another egg. Thus, we have sperm that cannot reproduce and eggs that cannot reproduce unless they get together.

“All that makes up the adult is present as the ovum and the sperm are united – the whole genetic code,” Koop continued.

Pro-lifers do not want to end abortion because we want to control women’s bodies, as Farrar implies. Pro-lifers want to end abortion because it destroys the life of an innocent human being inside the woman’s body. Ending abortion is not about regulating something that has the potential to become a life. It’s about protecting an actual, unique, irreplaceable human life from being destroyed.
