Oklahoma legislator introduces “Every Sperm is Sacred” provision into proposed law

February 8, 2012 | By | 2 Replies More

According to Raw Story, an Oklahoma legislator has tried to draw attention to a proposed new law by proposing a modification that would make every sperm sacred.

A pro-choice Democratic legislator has taken a novel approach to fighting an Oklahoma “personhood” bill. According to the blog Jezebel, State Senator Constance Johnson of Oklahoma City has introduced a measure that calls to mind the famous Monty Python “Every Sperm is Sacred” sketch from the 1983 film “The Meaning of Life.”

    I remember that great number, especially the little skit just before where one of the seemingly endless numbers of children of the house suggests to the father that he have an industrial accident so as to lop off his privates and keep from having anymore babies. “No, we’re Roman Catholics!” he says, and then then song and dance ensues.

    If this passes it would make male masturbation premeditated mass murder, and I guess wet dreams would be involuntary manslaughter.
