NCLIB Bill

Georgia State Senator Yasmin Neal (D-Riverdale) recently introduced the tongue-in-cheek bill No Child Left Behind in Ballsack. She says,

“Thousands of children are deprived of birth in this state every year because of the lack of state regulation over vasectomies. It is patently unfair that men can avoid unwanted fatherhood by presuming that their judgment over such matters is more valid than the judgment of the General Assembly, while women’s ability to decide is constantly up for debate throughout the United States.”

Neal’s bill comes as a sarcastic response to another bill up for debate in Georgia, one which would ban abortions after 20 weeks. With this legislation, she aims to point out the absurdity of allowing politicians, rather than doctors, make important reproductive health decisions.

Do you think bills like NCLIB make a good argument for women’s reproductive rights?
