On June 1. 2020, according to Yahoo News UK, a bill was introduced which banned any two people from different households from staying overnight, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
At 11:30 am on Monday, a change to the law was introduced to amend the government’s “Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) Bill” bans any “gathering which takes place in a public or private place indoors, and consists of two or more persons,” where there is no “reasonable excuse.” And "no person may, without reasonable excuse, stay overnight at any place other than the place where they are living.” If passed, this would mean that only married people, or people who have established a household would be sexually active until the end of the lockdown.
My SATIRICAL response was: What are they, crazy or something? That could severely decrease the number of abortions, STIs and fatherless households in the future. How will businesses that provide testing, and treatment survive? What about all those abortion clinics who are depending on unintended pregnancies to pay their employees? What about the hundreds of government programs whose very existence depends on fathers abandoning their children?
What if people decide, "Since we can't have sex, why don't we get to know each other a little better? Do you like kayaking?" Or worse, "Why are we putting off getting married? Let's start our forever today!"
Have they lost their minds?!
