COLUMBUS, Ohio Ã¢â‚¬â€ 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.

The “political theater” just finally sank to the level of modern cinema. This is pretty much the political version of “The hotty and the notty 2 IN 3D”.March 2, 2011 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #431535
I’m hearing that they couldn’t get the heartbeat, via standard ultrasound. And that a vaginal ultrasound was suggested, but shot down. (Can’t imagine why, seems so natural to do that in a room full of people, ya know, in a courtroom.)March 2, 2011 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #431536

The Maddow Blog has more on this stunt.
Ms. Porter, the woman behind this theater, co-chaired Mike Huckabee’s Faith and Family Values coalition in 2007. She also organized the “Values Voter Debate”. Maddow has some video from that freak show, not to be missed is a gospel choir singing “Why Should God Bless America?”March 2, 2011 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm #431543
