Schoolhouse Rock Parody Attacks Texas Abortion Bill

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.

Here's a snippet:

I'm a bad bill
I'm a really bad bill
And if they vote for me I think I'll be ill
Well, then I'm off to Rick Perry
You know he wants to sign
I'm red meat for the base
Oops! he must have lost his mind
If he signs me, then I'll be a law
How I hope and pray Wendy will
Stand up tall so I stay just a bill

Unfortunately, the bill will likely become a law as the GOP continues its' nationwide assault on all things strongly supported by Democratic progressives at the state level.
