Republican Proposes Government Provided Birth Control, For Horses
A Republican representative has introduced a spending bill amendment aimed at promoting the use of contraception – by horses.
Rep. Dan Burton (R-Ind.) introduced the amendment, which would control the population of wild horses and burros as an alternative to the costly practice of capturing the animals and holding them in pens, which the Bureau of Land Management currently employs.
The amendment would modify the budget to bar “funds made available by this Act [from being] used for the gathers and removals of free-roaming wild horses and burros, except for the purpose of fertility control”.
I’d love to know which part of the Constitution authorizes this.
