As the Texas legislature prepares to vote, again, on a new bill that would severely restrict abortion rights for women across the Lone Star State (It was defeated the first time by Wendy Davis' historic filibuster) a YouTube user made this parody of "I'm Just a Bill" from the '70s educational series "Schoolhouse Rock," with lyrics adjusted to fit the current assault on women's rights in Texas.

She shouldn’t even exist. Read more...
