Double-faced Republican Rejects Male Vasectomy Bill
Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) "draw the fire upon himself" after rejecting Alabama’s forced vasectomy legislation for men over 50 years, but still zealously promoting the anti-abortion agenda, putting all unwanted pregnancies on the backs of women.
Yikes. A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything...literally! Alabama Democrat proposes bill mandating all men have vasectomy at age 50 or after third child. https://t.co/PeaNUg1Joc— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) February 16, 2020
The public reaction was not long in coming and the politician met with public anger.
Yikes. It’s almost like you’re uncomfortable with someone telling you what to do with your body and deciding when and how to have a kid. pic.twitter.com/FlZ7sIwrgU— Ida Skibenes ❄️ (@ida_skibenes) February 16, 2020
According to bill HB238, every man will be required to “sterilize” by reaching the age of 50 or after the appearance of a third child in the family, whichever comes first.
From the side of the authors of the bill, this was the only logical and obvious move to equalize discrimination against women who were simply forbidden to have full control over their bodies.
The bill also bans abortion after incest and rape, it is clear that Ted Cruz is not interested in the well-being of children and their health in the future. In the framework of his interests, it is necessary to “saturate” the United States with “new” taxpayers, who, having no access to a quality education and, most likely to have grown up in an orphanage, will fill places at low-paying jobs.
Naturally, a stream of sarcasm and accusations in hypocrisy was brought down on Cruz.

A bill involving a medical procedure which only applies to one gender? Governmental overreach!— Pé Resists (@4everNeverTrump) February 16, 2020
State Rep. Rolanda Hollis in an interview with AL.com added that the bill aims to “neutralize the abortion ban bill.”
“It always takes two to tango,” HuffPost quotes Hollis. “We can’t put all the responsibility on women. Men need to be responsible also.”
