Texas Republican Wants Food Made/R&D Of Aborted Fetuses Labeled
The proposed law, authored by state Sen. Bob Hall, says food and medicine would have to be labeled if it contained or was manufactured with human fetal tissue or if it was the product of research that used such tissue. The bill defines human fetal tissue as “tissue, cells, or organs obtained from an aborted unborn child.”
I think as a consumer, we have a RIGHT to know such.
“Unfortunately, many Texans are unknowingly consuming products that… were developed using human fetal parts,” read a statement from Hall’s office. “While some may not be bothered by this, there are many Texans with religious or moral beliefs that would oppose consumption or use of these products.”
The use of animals (which has been outlawed) to be replaced by human fetal parts, some are very bothered with.
And here comes the lies/twisting from the media/agencies:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not allow the sale of foods containing human tissue.
“There are no conditions under which the FDA would consider human fetal tissue to be safe or legal for human or animal consumption,” an agency spokesperson wrote in an email to HuffPost.
But do they allow human fetal tissue to be used in R&D to make those products? DO THEY! ~crickets~
The bill, which Hall filed on behalf of a constituent, marks one of the latest eruptions of recurring controversies over the scientific use of cell lines, which can be derived from aborted or miscarried fetuses. Scientists routinely use such cells for research and experimentation, but they are not used as food additives.
Who said anything about “additives”? This once again is the media trying to LIE to you/misdirect you away from the R&D – Label aspect of the proposed law.
A single group of cells from a human embryo can be cultured thousands of times for many years. Several of the cell lines most widely used by researchers today were created decades ago.
And that still does not make it right. Those cells came from what is a human being.
The Texas bill would have little effect on the food industry since cell lines aren’t used as food ingredients,…
Misleading! False! It is about R&D!
The law would require labeling any medical product “derived from research using human fetal tissue.” This broad wording could apply to a vast array of vaccines and medicines…
As it should!
The FDA has tried to play down concerns about using embryonic cell lines in COVID-19 vaccine research. A spokesperson noted, “fetal tissue used to establish the cell culture lines was obtained decades ago, and no new fetal tissue is needed to produce cell lines to make the vaccines.”
But the original course was from fetal tissue. It does not matter if it was obtained ten days ago, ten months ago, or ten years ago. It is still fetal tissue being used!
“A well-informed consumer can make whatever choice they decide on purchasing a product so long as they have all of the information in hand to make the choice,” Hall wrote in an email to HuffPost.
But then, there are too many who do NOT want people to being informed. They want NPCs who will blindly follow-no questions asked.
Food containing human fetal tissue — which, again, does not exist — could meet the definition of cannibalism, which no federal law criminalizes and most states do not regulate.
Once again, this is a misdirection on the writers part.
It does not surprise me at all they would try to do that.
The amount on money experimenting on human fetal tissue they do NOT want to stop at all.
Stopping on animals, no problem!
Stopping on human… NO! NO! NO! Look away!
