Virginia State Senator Janet Howell says if women are forced to have ultrasounds, men should have equal obligations.

Howell expressed her disdain for the latest legislation on Monday, and said the amendment was just a matter of fairness between genders. Her amendment states before a man is treated for erectile dysfunction they must undergo a cardiac stress test and a digital rectal exam.
