Irony deficient Ted Cruz objects to Alabama vasectomy bill as government overreach.

https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/483326-yikes-ted-cruz-takes-aim-at-alabama-bill-requiring-men-get-vasectomies-at-50


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took aim at legislation recently introduced in Alabama by a state representative that would, if passed, make it mandatory for certain men to get vasectomies – a bill that comes in response to legislation passed last year that seeks to ban abortion in the state.

“Yikes,” Cruz wrote in response to the bill on Twitter on Sunday morning. “A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything...literally!”

Cruz was referring to legislation introduced by Alabama state Rep. Rolanda Hollis (D) last week that would, if passed, require men over the age of 50 in the state to get vasectomies as well as men who have had at least three biological children.

“Under existing law, there are no restrictions on the reproductive rights of men,” a synopsis for Hollis' bill states. "This bill would require a man to undergo a vasectomy within one month of his 50th birthday or the birth of his third biological child, whichever comes first."

In an interview with AL.com last week, Hollis said that the legislation comes in response to a law passed in the state last year that seeks to make abortion illegal almost all case, including in instances of rape or incest. The bill has not yet taken effect after being blocked in court.

“The vasectomy bill is to help with the reproductive system, and yes, it is to neutralize the abortion ban bill ... it always takes two to tango," she told the outlet. “We can’t put all the responsibility on women. Men need to be responsible also,” she also said.

1. I understand the point but

I don't see how introducing this bill is at all helpful

3. The bill is in response to one passed in Alabama (currently blocked by the courts)

that outlaws abortion in most cases including rape & incest. I've added more from the link to explain that.

If nothing else, it exposes the hypocrites.

2. Ted Cruz is like a robot programmed by aliens to mimic a human being

but the aliens just don't quite understand all the nuances of human behavior.
