Oklahoma State Senator Ralph Shortey has proposed legislation banning food products made from or containing aborted human fetuses.
Freshman Sen. Ralph Shortey said his own Internet research led him to believe such a ban is necessary and prompted him to offer the bill aimed at raising “public awareness” and giving an “ultimatum to companies” that might consider such a policy.
Shortey said he discovered suggestions online that some companies use embryonic stem cells to develop artificial flavors, but added that he is unaware of any Oklahoma companies doing such research.
Whew. I know I’ll feel better the next time I grab a sandwich in Oklahoma. Hopefully he’ll address tooth fairy licensing next.
