But only if you think fetuses count as babies. I guess that makes atheists exempt this time around.
An Oklahoma Republican is pushing a bill to outlaw the use of human fetuses in food, because, as he says, “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.”
State Sen. Ralph Shortey introduced a bill on Tuesday “prohibiting the sale or manufacture of food or products which contain aborted human fetuses.”
Though he has allowed that he is not aware of this occurring in Oklahoma, or anywhere for that matter, Shortey cited research he did on the internet that claimed that some companies use embryonic stem cells to help develop artificial flavoring.
Somebody’s been reading too much wingnut news, I think. Still, the idea has potential: Now! More baby flavor than ever!
ETA: Gawker is on the case, ready to tell you which companies will provide your fetus flavoring!
