The Personhood Bill: You Think Jails Are Overcrowded Now?

… just imagine what would happen if this got passed. To confirm, this handwritten note states the following:

… any action in which a man ejaculates or otherwise deposits semen anywhere but in a woman’s vagina shall be interpreted and construed as an action against an unborn child.

If you think this is an amusing gag designed to scare the bejesus out of men who spend a little too much time on their own in the shower, please avail yourself of the proposed ‘Personhood Bill’ in Oklahoma.

State Senator Constance Johnson was so incensed by the bill, which seeks to “define human life as beginning at the moment of conception, before it’s even implanted in the womb“, she added the facetious remark. She later voluntarily removed it, but not before stating that her intention was to highlight the absurdity of a proposal that she believes would essentially result in a woman being criminally culpable for not taking care of her eggs properly – including suffering a miscarriage.

Suddenly, the notion of a man being arrested for masturbating isn’t quite as humorous, is it?
