The hero in question is Virginia senator Janet Howell. The Democrat wasn’t happy with a proposed bill that requires women to have an ultrasound before they can have an abortion, so she attached a very special amendment to the bill…that requires men to undergo a rectal exam and a cardiac stress test before they can be prescribed medication for erectile dysfunction.

But how much do we need to worry about this considering our cell talk peaked in 2007 and talk time has been declining since then?
