If the Texas Lege's push for sweeping abortion restrictions isn't exactly inspiring everyone's faith in elected officials, it is providing another sort of inspiration.
From Bright Light Social Hour's minimalist paean "Wendy Davis" to the epic Taiwanese animated retelling of the SB5 filibuster, there's no shortage of creativity surrounding the reproductive rights struggle.
Appropriately, the latest entry turns back the clock to the decade of Roe vs. Wade and the Equal Rights Amendment, providing a timely update on the Schoolhouse Rock! classic "I'm Just a Bill." This time around, our protagonist is working his way through the democratic process with a bit more ambivalence.
