Apparently the new hotness among Republicans is legislating against things that don't exist. First Congress voted to knock down imaginary farm dust regulations, and now the Oklahoma Legislature has introduced a bill that would outlaw food "which contains aborted human fetuses in the ingredients or which used aborted human fetuses in the research or development of any of the ingredients." Always a major concern!
