LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -A Kentucky state lawmaker has filed a bill that would require men have at least two office visits and swear on a Bible they are married before a doctor could prescribe them erectile dysfunction medication.

The bill by Democratic state Rep. Mary Lou Marzian of Louisville is in response to Republican Gov. Matt Bevin signing a bill last week requiring women to consult with a doctor at least 24 hours before an abortion.

Other state lawmakers have filed similar bills to make political points. In 2012, a bill from an Ohio state senator required men to get a psychological evaluation before getting a prescription and last year a South Carolina state representative filed a bill that would require men to wait 24 hours before getting a prescription.
