COLUMBIA, S.C. — A South Carolina lawmaker is proposing that men who want to get Viagra or other drugs to help them have sex wait for 24 hours and get a sworn statement from their sexual partners detailing their problems.

Rep. Mia McLeod says her bill is a tongue-in-cheek response to all of the rules South Carolina’s male-dominated Legislature places on abortion.

It’s unlikely to pass, but the Columbia Democrat says just having a committee hearing on the bill Wednesday will bring attention to the issue.

McLeod’s bill would require a 24-hour waiting period before an erectile dysfunction medicine could be picked up from the pharmacy and require patients to get counseling on celibacy as a valid life choice.
