The Soylent Green is Fetuses (or is that Feti?) Problem

Tam pretty much sums up my thoughts on what I had previously believed was a non-existent problem, of people making food out of aborted fetuses:

Meanwhile, Oklahoma is becoming a vanguard state in the struggle to ban the use of aborted human fetuses in food products to be consumed by humans, a problem heretofore unknown by anyone, save that narrow demographic consisting of insomniacs who own shortwave radios.

My god, it’s like the Age of Reason never even happened.

I’ve been pondering if our elected leaders have never really been all that bright, but we could count on dead tree media to politely hide the worst of the idiocy from us, or whether we’re really on our way to electing potted plants.

  1. Look at it this way: Before he did this, no one had heard of him. Now everyone all across the country has heard of him. And the people in his district who are most likely to support him, have heard of him. Do you think anyone pro-life is going to vote against him for it? He couldn’t have paid for this kind of publicity, so how dumb is he?

    This certainly is shaping up to be The Year of the Moron. The more you act like a moron, the bigger constituency you’ll have.

  2. At least one company is using the tissue from murdered, unborn children as fodder for taste-testing experiments.

    “The pro-life organization Children of God for Life announced today the filing of a shareholder resolution with the Securities and Exchange Commission and PepsiCo, protesting the use of aborted a fetal cell line for the research and development of flavor enhancers for their beverages.

    “In August 2010, PepsiCo entered into a 4-year agreement with Senomyx for the development of artificial high-potency sweeteners for PepsiCo beverages. Under the contract, PepsiCo is paying $30 million to Senomyx for the research and future royalties on PepsiCo products sold using Senomyx technology.”

    I thought we fought WWII to stop Dr. Menegle and his ilk! Now he’s working for Pepsi!

    1. I can’t find any source for that outside of the pro-life community, which makes me think it’s bunk. It doesn’t scientifically make sense, since how do you use those kinds of cells to do sweetener research?
