Despite being rebuffed by voters in Mississippi and Colorado, proponents of the “personhood” movement are still pushing to enact legislation in states like Ohio and Oklahoma that would give zygotes the same rights as American citizens. These bills would not only criminalize abortion in all circumstances, they would also outlaw common forms of contraception, as well as in vitro fertilization. To poke fun at the absurdity of the measure, Oklahoma state Sen. Constance Johnson (D), has tacked on a provision affirming — in the words of a famous Monty Python song — that every sperm is sacred...

Among other things, Johnson’s amendment would essentially outlaw oral sex, anal sex, and masturbation. ... To prove that her amendment was in jest, Johnson voted with her colleagues to table itlater in the day.

This will give genocide a whole new meaning.

Texas proposed mandatory funerals for fetuses.

In July 2015, the Center for Medical Progress released a string of videos that essentially cast Planned Parenthood as a front for a satanic cult that offers abortion care in order to achieve its real goal: harvesting dead-baby body parts for money.

Over glasses of wine in restaurants, in beige-walled workplaces and generic hotel ballrooms, CMP “investigators,” posing as buyers from a fake company called BioMax Procurement Services, secretly recorded discussions with Planned Parenthood doctors and directors about the alleged sale of fetal tissue. The outcry triggered by this footage quickly escalated into right-wing hysteria over baby-part sales, gruesome dissections, and feticide. Committees were formed, investigations were launched, and abortion opponents riled themselves up in righteous outrage over Planned Parenthood’s pink-coated brand of evil that offers fetuses up to ritual sacrifice and profits in the process.

Most of this is unbelievable.  Fiction can be more terrifying than reality.

I often wonder what xtians think about unborn babies. Do they think the next one will be their new savior? More than likely it will be the next serial murderer.

More in the above link.

What you failed to mention, Chris, is that when the indictments were passed out as a result of those interviews, they were aimed at the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) and NOT Planned Parenthood!  Per usual, those indictments didn't get anywhere near the media notice that the videos did, but then, that's almost always the case.

I take at least some comfort in the fact that CMP took a bloody nose for their efforts and (with luck) won't try that stupid stunt again.
