If at first you don't succeed, ride in on a motorcycle.
Conservative legislators in North Carolina trying to get a new restrictive abortion bill passed have done just that.
House committee members refashioned a bill on motorcycle safety into one principally about abortion after the state's governor threatened on Wednesday to veto the anti-abortion measures.
They were previously attached to a bill aimed at keeping foreign laws -- which included Islamic Sharia law -- out of state legal proceedings.
Conservative legislators will submit the new bill for a vote to the state legislature Thursday, CNN affiliate WRAL reported.
Uniting the proposed abortion legislation with a bill about motorcycle safety triggered derisive criticism on social media and spawned the Twitter hash tag #vaginamotorcycle.
"Well, been riding around on my #vaginamotorcycle all night without a helmet," @Duchwela3h posted.
@aayers324 posted an illustration matching the view of a motorcycle from the front with female reproductive anatomy.
She commented: "I can see how NC got confused on this one."
