If a google search is the sum total research you're giving to an issue, in ANY capacity (let alone one as important as a legislator), you're a fraud.
Also, it looks like someone took A Modest Proposal a little too seriously
I would also like to mention, the bill bans both food and products made of aborted human fetuses. I dare say that the good people of Oklahoma may soon find themselves woefully untrampolined. Perish the thought....
Classic SNL skit - Placenta Helper
" One short script that the NBC censors cut was a fake ad for Placenta Helper, written by Al Franken and Tom Davis."
I found this using the googles, but the book's around here somewhere.
But yeah, this is all about stem cells.
I'm picturing some slightly-below-average-IQ, sheltered, car-salesman good ol' boy being helped onto the internet by an intern, poking around at it boredly for a while, and then staying up for 36 hours straight reading every word in David Icke's forums while occasionally calling out, "HAY, JIMMY! You b'lieve this? Says the guv'mint's been lettin' them lizard-folks perform all kindsa hex-peer-mints ta stayr-lahz anybody's got them a too hah IQ on account 'a they ain't want us figgerin' out their teck-noll-gees, an' they put them 'borted fetusers IN AWR FOOD! This's gotta stop!"
HEK293 are an immortal cell line derived from embryonic kidneys, from aborted fetal tissue. It should be noted that this particular line was isolated about 40 years ago from a single abortion and has been growing in lab incubators ever since. One time isolation of a cell line here, not some underground industry driving a demand for aborted fetal tissue.
They are primarily used in medical and biological research. Pretty neat that something that could've been mere medical waste is now an immortal, valuable research tool. I'm sure the religious right would rather have flavor enhancers injected directly into guinea pig eyeballs though, that would be less of a moral conundrum. http://hek293.com/
Will they go against the free market, and stop religions from practicing their holy and God-praising faith?
The religious right might just implode if they have to consider such things.
Or perhaps he misunderstood this product?
