Mandatory Testicle Removal

Back when I was concerned that Maryland might pass a law requiring mental health professionals to report dangerous patients to the FBI's database, I sent some robo-emails to legislators opposing House Bill 810.  Today, I got the following reply from a state senator (not mine):

Sent: Wednesday, February 27, 2013 9:45 AM
To: Jacobs, Nancy Senator
Subject: Opposing House Bill 810

Dear Senator Jacobs,
I am writing to let you know that I strongly oppose the passage of House Bill 810.

From: "Jacobs, Nancy Senator
 Sent: Tuesday, April 23, 2013 4:14 AM
Subject: RE: Opposing House Bill 810

Dear Ms. Dinah:
Thank you for writing Senator Jacobs requesting support for Senate Bill 820/House Bill 767 - Animal Welfare - Spay/Neuter Fund - Establishment.  Senator Jacobs was in support of this legislation and is happy to report that the bill passed both the Senate and the House.
Legislative Aide to Senator Nancy C. Jacobs
So no mandatory reporting, but it seems that some poor dogs may have lost their reproductive organs because of me.

When I saw the title, I thought it was going to refer to cases like this.

Dealing with the psychological damage caused by such cases - still standard practice in many hospitals - is a lifelong task.
