“Each male, when they reach puberty, get a mandatory vasectomy” is a direct quote that was actually presented as a concept. A US state representative has actually proposed mandatory vasectomies for all men.
A state representative from Oklahoma proposed legislation that would render vasectomies compulsory for all young men in the state.
State Rep. Mickey Dollens stated on Thursday that he is considering submitting the proposal next year, when appearing before a floor of legislators.
“I would invite you to co-author a bill that I’m considering next year that would mandate that each male, when they reach puberty, get a mandatory vasectomy that’s only reversible when they reach the point of financial and emotional stability,” he told GOP lawmakers.
“If you think that’s crazy then I think that maybe you understand how 50 percent of Oklahomans feel, as well,” the Democrat said.

Oklahoma’s law, if implemented, would be one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country.
The bill arrives as the Supreme Court considers reversing Roe v. Wade, the historic 1973 judgment that legalized abortion in the US. A draft Supreme Court judgment foreshadowing a Roe v. Wade overturn was released by Politico earlier in the month. Associate Justice Samuel Alito described abortion as “egregiously wrong from the start.” in the draft.
