Okla. senator wants ban on human fetuses in food
Okla. senator introduces bill to ban human fetuses in food or for use in ingredient research
By The Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) ' A Republican state senator from Oklahoma City has introduced a bill that would ban the use of aborted human fetuses in food, though there's no indication that this is a concern.

Freshman Sen. Ralph Shortey said Tuesday that Internet research he has conducted led him to believe such a ban is necessary. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says it's unaware of such a concern.

Shortey's bill would prohibit the manufacture or sale of any food in which aborted fetuses were used in developing any of the ingredients. He said that while he is not aware of any Oklahoma companies doing such research.

Self-described "pro-life" Sen. Brian Crain said Tuesday he believes there are other issues "more deserving of our attention right now."
