    OT: Boycott human fetuses as food!

    Seriously, folks, I'm not making this up.

    Oklahoma Republican seeks to ban aborted human fetuses in food products.

    Sadly, only in America....

    Politics, abortion (and thereby religion), all in one.

    A good pic to sum up the likely result of this thread (and throw in guns as well!).

    This post has nothing to do with mountain biking. It seems you are trying to use MTBR as your anti-Republican soap box. However, there is a little more to this bill then you are insinuating. The bill has to do with stem cell research, which, by the way, I am in favor of allowing with and without government funding.

    Ralph Shortey, Oklahoma State Senator, Introduces Bill Banning Aborted Fetuses In Food

    Sen. Ralph Shortey of Oklahoma City introduced on Tuesday Senate Bill 1418, which prohibits "the sale or manufacture of food or products which contain aborted human fetuses." He says he based the bill on an article he read online about an anti-abortion group boycotting companies that allegedly use embryonic stem cells to research and develop artificial sweeteners.

    “People are thinking that this has to do with fetuses being chopped up and put in our burritos,” Shortey told NewsOK. "“That's not the case. It's beyond that.

    “There are companies that are using embryonic stem cells to research and basically cause a chemical reaction to determine whether or not something tastes good or not,” he said. “As a pro-life advocate, it kind of disturbed me that we would use aborted embryos or aborted human fetuses to extract stem cells and use them for research to basically make things taste better.”

    PepsiCo did partner with food product development company Senomyx to develop a new low-calorie sweetener, but the company denied using fetal tissue in its research in an April 2011 email to Children of God for Life.

    Where does the "politics" come in here? If a Democrat had sponsored this bill, wouldn't it be just as insane? Do Democrats eat fetuses? C'mon, somebody throw me a freakin' bone here.

    Here is the back ground information on the bill.

    Patents support Oklahoma senator’s bill to ban use of aborted fetal tissues in food research | LifeSiteNews.com

    It's sad that we actually have to pass a bill to stop this sort of stupidity.

    Like most it's either agenda driven or sheer stupidity .
    I'm betting on the latter in this case

    Why the bill, because the abortion industry makes around $1450 per abortion. The whole idea is prevent the abortion industry from commoditizing harvested tissue from murder children in the womb.

    I encourage eveyone to check out the Genocide Awareness Project.

    Why is this sad?

    Are you saying you're OK with eating fetuses?

    I am pro choice but I don't care to eat a fetus and don't think they should be used in food.
    Nobody cares...........

    @chas_martel.........

    If your prochoice then why don't you think human embryonic tissue should be used in food, cosmetics, and scientific research?

    Because I don't think people should be consuming other humans parts. I don't see how being prochoice leads to thinking that eating human tissue is acceptable.

    Also, while prochoice I am not proabortion. It is like homosexuality, stupid to be that way but knock yourself out.

    Seriously, you are OK with eating human tissue? Do you think others are out of line for not being ok with it?
    Nobody cares...........

    @Chas_martel......

    The reason I asked is because you seem to be "okay" with murdering children in the womb on one hand but on the other hand you seem to have moral problems with using there tissue in scientific research, cometics and in food on the other. The question you need to ask your self is why do all human beings regardless of size, level of development, enviorment, and degree of dependcy have equal value???

    I did not say I am OK with murdering children. It is just that abortion is not a blood sin.
    Just a religion thing for me, you most likely disagree. (I am a Jew that believes the messiah has already walked the face of the earth.) Check out Exodus 21:22 or there abouts.

    PS: Are you OK with eating people killed on death row?
    Nobody cares...........
