We’ve all seen the relentless assault on women’s reproductive rights that Republicans have been pushing across the country. But in North Carolina today, the state legislature outdid itself. Republicans attached an anti-choice amendment to the Motorcycle Safety Act without any public notice, prompting disbelief, outrage and the hashtag #motorcyclevagina from pro-choice advocates. What’s more, even though North Carolina’s Republican governor campaigned on a promise not to sign any new anti-choice laws, he’s changed his mind. The bill passed the House Judiciary Committee on a 10-5 party line vote, and the governor could very well sign it. We could write for days about this abuse of the democratic process, but we had a better idea. And so without further ado, we at EMILY’s List present to you “The North Carolina #MotorcycleVagina Saga, as told in gifs.” Enjoy!

Even though we're like

What does the GOP have to say to that?
