Pepsi Shareholders' Fetal Cells Resolution Filed with SEC: A PepsiCo shareholder resolution has been filed over Pepsi's use of aborted fetal cell lines. In an update on this grave matter, the Children of God for Life announced today the filing of a shareholder resolution with the Securities and Exchange Commission and PepsiCo on the use of aborted fetal cell line HEK-293 (human embryonic kidney) for the research and development of flavor enhancers for their beverages. (See the Press Release.)
From April's BEL Show: Pepsi: Aborted Baby Cells in Drink Research, here's the story. Stunning Interview includes Report of Company's Defense: Bob Enyart interviews Debi Vinnedge, executive director of Florida's Children of God for Life, about the use of an aborted baby's kidney cells to produce "isolated human taste receptors" which are then monitored for whether or not they produce certain proteins when exposed to various flavor enhancers. (The same research can be done ethically using adult stem cells and in other ways.)
* Coca Cola and Campbell's Soups Do Right: Thanks to Debi's work, Coca Cola and Campbell's Soups immediately ended their research projects with Senomyx, the biotech company conducting the flavor-enhancing research with aborted baby cells.
* But Pepsi has Dug In, So the Boycott Begins: As announced on Colorado's 50,000-watt AM 670 KLTT, America's #1 most-powerful Christian radio station, veteran talk show host Bob Enyart along with longtime CRTL vice president Leslie Hanks, on behalf of the nation's first right-to-life group and the state's largest pro-life organization Colorado Right To Life, are joining Debi Vinnedge's call for a boycott of all Pepsi beverages including:
|Pepsi|| Mountain Dew|
|Propel|| Tropicana Orange Juice|
| Lipton Ice Teas|| Starbucks Frappucinos|
| Aquafina Water|| Diet Pepsi|
