If your love life is on the rocks and you’re in desperate need of a little pick-me-up, Viagra may be a great option, but if the Raging Grannies get their way, you’ll need to pass an inspection, first.
Members of the Raging Grannies Action League today said that men who want erection drugs like Viagra to treat impotence should be required to have strict testing first, according to a Granny fan's Facebook page.
The Grannies’ new Viagra Review Board (VRB), wearing their finest puritanical garb, came out Wednesday in support Ohio State Senator Nina Turner, who introduced a bill requiring that physicians take specific actions before prescribing Viagra and similar drugs. Those actions include a cardiac stress test and referral to a sex therapist who would confirm that patient’s symptoms are not entirely caused by psychological conditions.
The formation of the VRB is a response to efforts by out-of-state Republicans to regulate women’s reproductive rights by requiring such things as sonograms for women who want or need abortions.
The women of the VRB all came of age before Roe v. Wade, according to their Facebook page.
The Grannies announced from their Palo Alto headquarters that they are committed to ensuring the United States does not return to the pre-Roe v. Wade era.
