Wingnut forced to explain to colleagues why maternity care also benefits men

A wingnut senator has asked that maternity care not be cut from the Obamacare repeal effort because both men and women are affected by pregnancy.
Addressing the press in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, Cassidy said he did not want to see a health care bill that removed the responsibility of insurers to provide maternity care, despite arguments from other Republicans that men are paying for a service they don’t use.
"You end up with policies that don't cover maternity. And as best I can tell, women don't get pregnant without sperm,” Cassidy said in comments carried by The Hill, refuting the idea that men do not have any use for maternity care and prenatal care in their policies
