Fetus Scheduled to Testify on Ohio Abortion Bill


Wingnut Janet Porter has scheduled a fetus to testify on an abortion bill called the "Heartbeat Bill" before the Ohio legislature.

FOX 8 reports:

A fetus has been scheduled as a legislative witness in Ohio on a unique bill that proposes outlawing abortions after the first heartbeat can be medically detected.

Faith2Action, the anti-abortion group that has targeted Ohio to pilot the measure, called the in-utero witness the youngest to ever come before the House Health Committee at 9 weeks old.

Faith2Action president Janet Folger Porter said the intent is to show lawmakers who will be affected by the bill, which abortion rights groups oppose. Ohio Right to Life has not endorsed the measure.

An aide to committee Chairman Lynn Wachtmann said a pregnant woman will be brought before the committee and an ultrasound image of her uterus will be projected onto a screen. The heartbeat of the fetus will be visible in color.

Porter, as you may recall, has been featured here before in over-the-top nutty videos in which she prayed for Christian control over the media, and Christian control of the government.

    Sometimes, I think that crazies like Porter are the liberal side’s best assets. I just can’t imagine a moderate or a ‘fencesitter’ wanting to be associated with her, Westboro Baptist Church, and the like. And I really believe that it’s the moderates, the ones who are still rational, who will help our cause the most, assuming we can appeal to their sense of reason. Folks like Porter seem to have already lost theirs, so they are nothing more than wasted effort if we try and reason with them.

    You gotta laugh. We have fallen through the looking glass.

    But what would be more fun would be to have a man and an ovulating woman have sex in chambers and then see if you can get a comment from the fertilized egg! I’ll prepare a list of questions for it. I just can’t figure out which end of the woman to talk into.

    What if the fetus turns out to be an atheist?
