Janet Howell Is My New Hero(ine)

Janet Howell is a state senator in Virginia’s legislature, and today she attached an amendment to a forced ultrasound bill for women seeking abortions that would make a rectal exam and a cardiac stress test mandatory for men before they could get a prescription for erectile dysfunction medication.

Needless to say, Howell’s amendment was defeated and the bill went on to pass Virginia’s legislature with the ultrasound requirement intact — but it was still a gutsy move on Howell’s part.
