Wednesday is Planned Parenthood lobby day at the state capitol in Austin. As you might expect, it's brought out the best in our favorite local state rep, fetal gun rights advocate and constitutional scholar Jonathan Stickland.
Stickland took Wednesday as the opportunity to replace the sign outside his capitol office with an official looking number that identifies himself as a "former fetus."
He issued a typically tactful statement with a picture of the sign on his campaign Facebook page.
"Today Planned Parenthood is visiting and lobbying the Capitol. In honor of their visit, I put this sign up on my office door. Organizations that murder children are not welcome in my office. #prolifeandproudofit"
Stickland's fun, sadly, was ended by Charlie Geren, the Republican chair of the House Administration Committee.
