Oklahoma Republican Files Bill to Ban Food Containing Aborted Fetuses
Oooo-klahoma. If the state didn’t exist, the Onion would have to invent it. Today’s story of totally insane right wing fear-mongering is brought to you by GOP State Sen. Ralph Shortey, who is very upset about food products that contain aborted fetuses.
Not a joke, of course. It’s simply impossible to parody these people any more.
An Oklahoma lawmaker files a bill to ban the making and selling of food or products that use aborted human fetuses.
State Senator Ralph Shortey says he’s done research and found reports that companies have used stem cells in the research and development of food.
“I don’t know if it is happening in Oklahoma, it may be, it may not be.� What I am saying is that if it does happen then we are not going to allow it to manufacture here,” says Shortey.
The lawmaker that represents Oklahoma County couldn’t give any specific examples.
“There is a potential that there are companies that are using aborted human babies in their research and development of basically enhancing flavor for artificial flavors,” says Shortey.
