Oklahoma senator and renowned doofus Ralph Shortey has just filed a bill that would place a ban on food or products in Oklahoma which use aborted human fetuses. Because this apparently is a thing now.
Though he couldn’t cite any specific examples, Senator Shortly says that manufacturers are using stem cell research to create genetically modified foodstuffs which he deems unsuitable for the Sooner State.
“I don’t know if it is happening in Oklahoma, it may be, it may not be. What I am saying is that if it does happen then we are not going to allow it to manufacture here… 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,” says Shortey.
Shortley claims he’s done his research into the matter, though he also admits that his research consists of reading an article online somewhere.
This isn’t the first time Shortey has grabbed headlines for his bills. Previous attempts to create laws in Oklahoma were based around authorizing law enforcement to seize the homes of illegal immigrants and allowing legislators to carry concealed firearms including in government buildings like the floor of the House and the Senate.
