Hollis said the bill is a response to last year’s abortion bill that passed the legislature and included a near-total ban on abortion.
“The vasectomy bill is to help with the reproductive system, and yes, it is to neutralize the abortion ban bill … it always takes two to tango,” she said. “We can’t put all the responsibility on women. Men need to be responsible also.”
Hollis explained that she is “both” pro-life and pro-choice.
“I do not believe that women should use abortion as a birth control, but I do believe that if a women is raped or if it’s incest or anything like that, then she has the choice to do what she wants to do.”
In October, a federal judge blocked the abortion bill from going into effect while courts address challenges to the legislation. The bill would only make abortion legal if the life of the mother is in danger.
