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.
