North Carolina House Republicans are trying to push controversial abortion restrictions through the state legislature without much public notice by tacking them onto a bill about motorcycle safety.

The title of the bill, SB353, is 140 words long: 123 of those words refer to the abortion measures, while the last 17 words relate to motorcycle safety.
