Christian panic: Gullible rubes are worried big business is using aborted fetal tissue in food supplements, additives, and sweeteners.
Conservative Christian activist Dave Daubenmire is sounding the alarm, warning his followers that “abortion is big business” and companies are secretly using aborted fetal tissue in “food supplements, additives, sweeteners…and other things that human beings ingest.”
OMG: “Soylent Green Is People!”
Writing for Barbwire, a conservative Christian website, Daubenmire declares:
Abortion is BIG BUSINESS and the government is actively involved in the promotion of research involving the use of “fetal tissue.” (That is a nice term for aborted babies.) Ever wonder where they get the fetal tissue? And what might they be using these aborted children for? Why food supplements, additives, sweeteners…and other things that human beings ingest. Yep, you read that right. Ingest is another slick term for eat.
I didn’t finish at the top of my class but I was pretty good in English and I believe that ingesting fetal tissue would be classified as cannibalism. Just in case you don’t like my tin-foil-hat the dictionary defines cannibalism as “The act or practice of eating human flesh, by mankind.” Yep, we are eating our offspring. I often hear the refrain from pro-cannibalists “How does my abortion affect you? It is none of your business what I do with my body.” Accept it does affect me when I swallow little Suzie’s DNA in a soft drink.
The most salient remark Daubenmire makes in his absurd and bizarre rant is this:
I didn’t finish at the top of my class…
Thank you Captain Obvious.
As for Daubenmire’s absurd conspiracy theory, it has been circulating in one form or another for years. Sometimes it is anti-abortion conservative Christians like Daubenmire making the claim, other times it is gullible anti-science luddites pushing alternative medicine and other conspiracy theories.
Concerning the absurd fetal tissue conspiracy theory, Snopes reports:
neither Pepsi nor any other U.S. food company is manufacturing or selling any consumable products “that are actually made using the cell tissue of unborn babies that were murdered through abortion.”
Bottom line: Christian activist and conspiracy theory enthusiast Dave Daubenmire has gullible Christian rubes worried that big business is using aborted fetal tissue in food supplements, additives, and sweeteners.
