ROE v WADE: A MODEST PROPOSAL 

In Texas there’a a lady politician
Who says it’s time for men to be more chaste
We should punish them for wasting an emission
God did not intend their sperm to go to waste.

             Yes, there really is such a proposal in the Texas legislature – intended as a satire on the anti-abortionists who dominate Texas politics. The bill imposes a $100 fine for any “masturbatory emissions” not deposited directly into a woman or properly stored for future use. And yes, it really did produce a non-satirical response from an anti-abortion Texas legislator who insisted the bill shows “a basic lack of understanding of human biology.” Which provoked a persuasive fiscal promise:

In addition to its moral acclamation
There’s an even more persuasive reason yet
If men had to pay a fine for masturbation
We’d be able to retire the nation’s debt
