Oklahoma Republican state senator Ralph Shortey has proposed a bill to outlaw the use of human fetuses in food. He was convinced of the need for such a law based on his own internet research. He claims that companies use aborted human babies in their R & D to enhance the flavoring of their products. When the interviewer pressed him for more details, he admitted that he wasn't "entirely sure" that companies were doing this, but that the law was needed because "there is a potential" that companies are using human fetuses in their food. Apparently, he considers this a slippery slope that could lead to further horrors, one of which, he says, could be a government program requiring everyone to be organ donors.
It appears there is a religious component in his theories as the article features a picture of him standing in front of his Baptist church bus. He also mentions the evils of stem cell research.
Well, I just hope the people of Oklahoma have learned their lesson. Last year they voted to ban Sharia law in their state, and I read somewhere that Sharia Law forbids the eating of aborted fetuses. Now that there is a pressing need for Sharia law they will have to vote all over again.
