The Texas House of Representatives spent much of today debating a bill to force women who are seeking abortions to view a sonogram of their fetus.
If there is a more august body to discuss such a bill, we don't know what it is. Unless it's the Ohio legislature, which had a fetus testify today by having its heartbeat amplified.
A testifyin' fetus? Texas, you've been pwned.
There's only one way to get back into this game, Lege: Instead of forcing a woman to watch a sonogram (booorrrring), appeal to the Kidz through social media. Force every pregnant women contemplating an abortion to view a state-created Facebook page of their fetus.
Ball's in your court, Ohio.
