North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory claimed that he would not sign the state Republican party’s new restrictions on abortion when they were attached to a Sharia Law bill, but now that the restrictions have been attached to a Motorcycle safety bill, he will sign it.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina’s governor says he will sign a new version of a bill that raises standards for abortion clinics into law if it reaches his desk.
Gov. Pat McCrory announced his decision Friday, two days after he threatened to veto the previous legislation for how it addressed raising standards for abortion clinics through rules similar to outpatient surgery centers. The House changed the language to satisfy McCrory’s health and human services department.
McCrory says the version that passed the House on Thursday will ensure women’s safety and not limit their access to abortion.
It’s for your own safety, ladies. So say the menfolk in charge.
By the way, the title of the motorcycle safety bill includes 17 words regarding motorcycle safety and 123 words on abortion. I shit you not.
Abortion, abortion, abortion, abortion, and safe driving!
