Ted Cruz Is Not a Fan of the Government Telling Men What to Do With Their Bodies

An Alabama state legislator has proposed a bill to force men into vasectomies once they hit 50 or have three children.

Ted Cruz Is Not a Fan of the Government Telling Men What to Do With Their Bodies

An Alabama state legislator has proposed a bill to force men into vasectomies once they hit 50 or have three children. And Ted Cruz isn’t pleased about it.

“Yikes!” the Texas GOP senator tweeted Sunday. “A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything…literally!”

The bill, proposed last week by Democratic Rep. Rolanda Hollis, is meant to “neutralize” the sweeping law passed last year that would ban nearly all abortions in the state, Hollis told AL.com on Friday. Under that law, even rape and incest survivors would be barred from seeking abortions, though court challenges blocked the ban from taking effect.

“It takes two to tango,” Hollis said. “We can’t put all the responsibility on women. Men need to be responsible also.”

Under Hollis’ bill, men would be required to undergo vasectomies within one month of their 50th birthdays or after fathering three children, “whichever comes first.” The men would also shoulder the cost of their vasectomies.

The bill has essentially zero chance of becoming law in the Republican-controlled Alabama state Legislature. Its synopsis notes that, under Alabama law, there are “no restrictions on the reproductive rights of men.”
