North Carolina Abortion Bill Accidently Gives Birth to #motorcylevagina

Without informing the public or Democratic legislators, GOP representatives attached abortion restrictions in committee to a bill. That bill? Motorcyle Safety. In a move straight out of a political satire, the committee approved (along party lines) to move the bill to the floor of the House for Debate.

Twitter users broke the story and instantly started causing a ruckus, and found some small measure of good in this horribly backhanded political maneuver. 

I give you the best of #motorcylevagina-
