Alabama Democrat proposes bill mandating all men have vasectomy at age 50 or after third child

MONTGOMERY — State Rep. Rolanda Hollis (D-Birmingham) on Thursday filed a bill that would mandate every Alabama man to undergo a vasectomy within one month of his 50th birthday or the birth of his third biological child, whichever comes first.

Democrats in the Alabama legislature last year brought up the possibility of introducing such a bill during the abortion debate on 2019’s HB 314, known as the Human Life Protection Act.

“Under existing law, there are no restrictions on the reproductive rights of men,” states the introduction to Hollis’ new bill, HB 238.

The bill has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee.

HB 238 specifically would mandate each vasectomy occur at the respective man’s “own expense.”

During the debate on the Human Life Protection Act in 2019, Hollis read from a poem “If My Vagina was a Gun,” comparing the Second Amendment rights debate to the debate over a woman’s right to an abortion.

    Not getting an abortion costs nothing. A vasectomy costs money & because it is an unnecessary medical procedure, it may less likely covered by one’s insurance.
    Furthermore, a vasectomy limits one’s ability to father children. NOT having an abortion does nothing to stop a woman from having a child.
