A US lawmaker, Jessica Farrar has proposed the imposition of a fine for men who masturbate, according to the BBC.
The Texas lawmaker’s draft law is aimed at protecting unborn children.
She submitted the Bill, numbered 4260 last week to the Texas House of Representatives.
Farrar argues that the state of Texas has put restrictions on women when it comes to choosing whether or not to end their pregnancy.
A string of proposed bills last year wanted to force women to choose whether to bury or cremate the embryonic remains of either a miscarriage or abortion, a position Farrar is uncomfortable with.
During a hearing for the bill last August, state Senator Don Huffines said, “For far too long, Texas has allowed the most innocent among us to be thrown out with the daily waste.”
Reacting, she said, “It got me thinking, maybe what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
“If we are taking these measures because of the sanctity of life, well, we just cannot waste any seed.”
