Viagra Review Board March 23, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — redeyedtreefrog @ 6:59 pm

In Palo Alto, California, members of the Raging Grannies Action League said that men who want drugs such as Viagra to treat impotence should be required to have strict testing before receiving said drugs.

“The Grannies applauded Ohio State Senator Nina Turner who has introduced a bill requiring that physicians take specific actions before prescribing Viagra and similar drugs, including giving a cardiac stress test and making a referral to a sex therapist for confirmation that the patient’s symptoms are not solely attributable to one or more psychological conditions.

The photo was taken of members of the Raging Granny VRB (Viagra Review Board) in response to moves by Republicans to limit women’s right to reproductive health. Members of the Review Board are all women who came of age before Roe v. Wade. From their headquarters in Palo Alto they announced that they are old enough to know what it was like to live before women’s reproductive rights became law of the land, and they will do all they can to make sure that the US does not return to that era.
