State Rep. Rolanda Hollis sponsored the bill, which would also require all men in the state to undergo the procedure after their third child.
Men would be required to pay for the operation, the bill states.
Rep. Hollis said on Twitter that the bill was in response to a proposed near-total ban on abortion in the state that was struck down by a federal court in 2019.
“The Vasectomy bill is to help with the reproductive system.
This is to neutralize the abortion ban bill,” Hollis wrote in the tweet.
