Tom Cruise inspires a law

September 11, 2006

Tom Cruise is the inspiration behind a new proposal for a law, but not in a good way. 

Almost one year after actor Tom Cruise told television interviewer Barbara Walters that he had purchased a personal ultrasound machine to monitor his and fiancee Katie Holmes’ fetus, California lawmakers are asking Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to sign a bill that would limit sales of the machines to licensed medical professionals.

Dubbed the “Tom Cruise bill,” the measure seeks to prevent anxious parents who are looking for new ways to peek at their unborn from purchasing the machines for home use.

Sometimes having too much money can get you into trouble.  You would think that with his own personal ultrasound machine that he would have had one of those pictures in Vanity Fair, but nooooo.  Maybe Tom was trying to find out if he really had a brain after his outburst on Oprah or something.  It was in California so if he claims it was for medicinal use he might get away with it – California is a bit liberal when it comes to use of medical stuff for medicinal use.
