U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, took aim at Alabama state Rep. Rolanda Hollis, a Democrat, over her controversial legislative proposal.
“Yikes,” Cruz wrote in a tweet on the subject. “A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything…literally! Alabama Democrat proposes bill mandating all men have vasectomy at age 50 or after third child.”
Many critics of the conservative lawmaker were able to make their own point by noting their agreement with Cruz in this case.
Writer Melissa Ryan, for example, wrote: “Yes. Governments have no business controlling the reproductive systems of citizens. Glad you’ve finally come around on choice, Senator.”
