I just saw this on Yahoo news, and all I can say is WTF??

An Oklahoma bill that would ban the sale of food containing aborted human fetuses has some people wondering: What food currently contains aborted human fetuses?
Full article here:

Bill Would Ban Aborted Fetuses in Food | ABC News - Yahoo! News

What the hell..?

April Fools day is still a few months off, so I'm not sure what to think of this article...
  • Yeah, right - is this the same group of idiots that banned whale hunting...in a land locked state?

    Na, I wish I was joking. This is just.. wow.

    I dont know if there is any truth to it or not, but I figured people needed to know just in case.

    I've heard that placenta is a delicacy and supposedly very rejuvenating - but never could eat anything containing it if I knew it. As far a s fetus? Um.........that's cannibalism. This is about the sickest thing I've probably ever heard - and I've heard some severely twisted crap. If I was a Pepsi drinker, I'd be praying to the porcelain gods after reading that. Feeling good about not drinking pop for a lot of reasons at the moment.

    Well, if fetus is on the menu, I guess actual soilent green isn't too far off. It's 10:00 - do you know where your children are?

    Why do I always read this crap just before bed? No wonder my dreams are so freaking bizarre.

    I drink (or used to drink before reading this...) Pepsi on a daily basis - but not diet, which is what is mentioned in that article.

    However I'm not touching a Pepsi ever again after reading this.. diet or not.

    I actually might swear off soda altogether & just start drinking SmartWater, LOL

    The bill refers to Chinese food obviously. This reminds me of the movie Delicatessen (7.8/10 on IMDB).

    This is depraved. I don't believe in the 2012 end of the world bunkum, but if it happened, this would be one reason why it was necessary! This is not evolution of the species, devolution.

    I'm guessing the site could use a better headline and ad copy. Just my opinion, though.

    Another crazy bill to join the kaleidoscopic of meaningless crazy bills from crazy public officials whom seem to always be of the same crazy persuasion.

    At least this one is harmless.

    Ugh! Sounds a bit like animal feed - apparently ground up animals are added to feed for animals like sheep and cows.

      Still sounds bad to me.
      But then it's easy to not drink soda, much harder to not eat GMO corn in one form or another.

        When groups have an agenda to get THEIR views adopted - they will do anything to "prove" their side.

        Shortey declined to give specific examples but said some food manufacturers used stem cells in the research and development process.
        They don't call him Shortey for nothing, do they? Gee - ya think the guy is against stem cell research? Of course he is. What better way to get attention (like here) than to link human remains with stem cells research and a basic need of everyone (food).

        Idiot. Unfortunately, many idiots get elected because the public isn't smart enough to see the zealots for what they are.

    There was an outcry in China a few years ago over a report of aborted human fetuses being used in a soup. However, it could not be validated after extensive third party investigation. In fact, photos are actually lifted from a conceptual art piece by Chinese sculptor Zhu Yu. But it would not be that surprising if that really did happened.

    I have had human placenta soup when I was a child. It was reported to be good for asthma and I thought it was pig lungs' soup. The placentas were bought from a local hospital and washed 40 times before being used. It is not possible to buy them from local hospitals anymore, they are much more likely to be sold to cosmetics companies.

    In the near future when this genocide is outlawed, this crazy fool and his antics may be looked upon as the Oscar Schindler of his day. Crazy is only a matter of perspective. People will one day look back in history and wonder why any of us here didn't do more crazy stuff to stop it.
