Pepsi Using Cells from Aborted Babies in Soft Drink Formula Research

You’ve heard the argument for using the cells of aborted children (i.e., embryonic stem cells) to cure all sorts of life threatening diseases and helping the disabled walk. More and more people realize those arguments are no longer scientifically credible, but here’s one use of those cells you probably haven’t heard about.

Pepsi is using the fetal cells from aborted babies in its research to come up with a tastier soft drink.

Last week, dozens of pro-life groups called for a boycott of Pepsi because of information that came to light in March showing Pepsi’s biotech company is testing food additives using fetal cells from abortions.

The groups got an email response from “Pepsi Consumer Relations” thanking them for the letter and assuring the concerned pro-life groups that they are committed to “only the highest ethical methods in all aspects of our research.” The Pro-life groups calling for the boycott say Pepsi is not taking its concerns seriously.

It’s not just Pepsi, either. The biotech company responsible for Pepsi’s research and development, Senomyx, has also partnered with other American food company giants like Kraft and Nestlé. When the makers of Campbell’s Soup learned of Senomyx’s unethical and repugnant research practices, they severed all ties with the biotech company. Pepsico must be pressured by the American consumer to do likewise.
