Masturbation by men in Texas could lead to fines
Farrar knows her satirical bill will not become law, but hopes it will make people stop and think about the "unnecessary" and "invasive" procedures that women seeking an abortion have to go through according to state laws.
Her proposal would add a lot of rules for men considering a vasectomy, colonoscopy or Viagra prescription. She claims that nowadays women do not find it amusing when they need to confront with the laws imposed by the state which seems to disrupt their capability to access health care legally. Though the "satirical" bill isn't expected to actually pass, it does an incredible job at highlighting the unfair double standards women face when it comes to their autonomy over reproductive choices. She is also against bills now under discussion that would require Texas hospitals to bury or cremate fetal remains and that would charge women who undergo an abortion with murder.
Farrar asserts this is intended as a response to a bill passed in 2011 that required any women seeking an abortion to first undergo a sonogram to see the baby before making a final decision. Like the pamphlets targeted at misinforming and discouraging women, men would be required to read a "Men's Right to Know" booklet regarding potential risks and concerns related to vasectomies, colonoscopies, and erectile dysfunction prescriptions. Masturbation is permitted in health or medical facilities so long as the "emissions will be stored for the purposes of conception for a current or future wife".
Given that many male politicians cite the sanctity of life when fighting against abortion, Farrar said it's only fair to view a man's sperm as a contribution to that life and that it would be a shame to waste it.

"If the state's going to step into the arena of women's healthcare, let's look to the best practices of the doctors, not bad science, not political agendas and not votes in a Republican primary", Farrar told the News Express.
Across the United States, lawmakers have been sponsoring bills which women such as Farrar see as an infringement of their human rights. Like Texas' Senate Bill 25 before it, HB 4260 protects doctors who may feel squeamish providing the care their patients request, allowing urologists "to invoke their personal, moralistic or religious beliefs in refusing to perform an elective vasectomy or prescribe Viagra".
As for her colleagues across the aisle, at least one doesn't find Farrar's attempt at legislative satire amusing.
Texas's attempts to limit abortions attracted national attention in 2013 when the then state senator Wendy Davis mounted an 11-hour filibuster in an attempt to block a bill that caused numerous state's abortion clinics to close. "Reproductive health care is at the core of women's health, and that's what Republican men keep messing with". She also said she wants to send "a really long needle-like, basically GoPro camera, and we put it down your penis hole, urethra, then down into your testicular sack", which sounds way unpleasant and hideously painful.
