Need Viagra? Not until you get your wife's approval in this state, if a new law gets passed. 

In protest of an anti-abortion law, a bill filed by a Kentucky state legislator Thursday could force men to have their wives sign a permission slip to obtain Viagra.

In addition to a signed note, men would also have to visit a doctor twice before getting a prescription, the Courier-Journal reports.

"I want to protect these men from themselves," said Rep. Mary Lou Marzian, who sponsored the bill.

Marizan told the Courier-Journal that the bill is intended to educate men on the potentially dangerous side effects of Viagra.

But according to the bill, only married men are allowed to receive prescriptions to Viagra which “requires a man to make a sworn statement with his hand on a Bible that he will only use a prescription for a drug for erectile dysfunction when having sexual relations with his current spouse."

Marizan said the bill is meant to protest an anti-abortion bill that was passed last week, which requires a woman to get counseling 24 hours before getting an abortion, according to the Courier-Journal.

"Do we really want a bunch or legislators interfering in private, personal, medical decisions?" she said to the Courier-Journal. "I'm just making sure the government is taking care of your safety.”
