Dr. Mary Lou Marzian

Democratic state Rep. Mary Lou Marzian of Louisville, Kentucky, has proposed a bill that would require men to have two in-person visits with a doctor before receiving a prescription for erectile dysfunction drugs, such as Viagra.  Marzian discusses with Jim that she doesn't think the bill will pass, but wants to bring attention to the subject.  In the same way that women need consent for personal decisions such as abortions, she feels that men should have to go through the same procedure.
