image for Ted Cruz Can’t Believe A Lawmaker Is Trying To Legislate Away A Man’s Reproductive Rights

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will not stand for this blatant violation of a (male) person’s bodily autonomy!.

On Sunday, Cruz tweeted an article from a conservative news site about Alabama state Rep. Rolanda Hollis’ (D) bill requiring men to undergo vasectomies at the age of 50 or after the birth of their third child.

A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything…literally!”

Cruz, a staunch opponent of abortion rights, wrote.

The Republican has advocated for a full ban on abortion with no exceptions, stripping funding for Planned Parenthood, and allowing companies to deny birth control coverage.

“Under existing law, there are no restrictions on the reproductive rights of men,” Hollis wrote in the bill’s synopsis.

Hollis did not respond to TPM’s request for comment at the time of writing. »

That’s just 1.1% of AOL’s $388 million stock deal for Moviefone in 1999, right before the internet bubble burst. »
