    19 SEC Rules for PepsiCo's Use of Aborted Fetal Cells

    SEC Rules for PepsiCo's Use of Aborted Fetal Cells

    http://www.thenewamerican.com/cultur...ed-fetal-cells
    The federal Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has decided against a
    group of PepsiCo shareholders in their efforts to stop the company from
    contracting with a firm that uses cells from aborted babies in producing
    artificial flavor enhancers.
    As reported last year in The New American, the shareholders had filed a
    resolution with the SEC after Pepsi ignored tens of thousands of concerned
    pro-life individuals who had expressed their disgust and opposition to its
    contracting with Senomyx, a biotech company that tests its food additive
    products using a process that includes fetal cells from aborted babies.

    In a decision delivered by letter February 28, the SEC said that Pepsi's
    research and development agreement with Senomyx, which includes the use of
    aborted fetal remains in flavor enhancement research, falls under "ordinary
    business operations" for the soft drink company. According to
    LifeSiteNews.com, the SEC decision came in response to a 36-page document
    submitted by Pepsi through its attorneys in January 2012. "In that filing,
    PepsiCo pleaded with the SEC to reject the shareholders' resolution filed in
    October 2011 that the company 'adopt a corporate policy that recognizes
    human rights and employs ethical standards which do not involve using the
    remains of aborted human beings in both private and collaborative research
    and development agreements,'" reported the pro-life news site.

    PepsiCo lead attorney George A. Schieren had argued that the shareholder
    resolution should be disregarded because it "deals with matters related to
    the company's ordinary business operations." He added that "certain tasks
    are so fundamental to run a company on a day-to-day basis that they could
    not be subject to stockholder oversight."

    Debi Vinnedge of Children of God for Life, which had originally exposed the
    relationship between Pepsi and Senomyx, said that she was "appalled by the
    apathy and insensitivity" of PepsiCo and the Obama administration's SEC. "We're
    not talking about what kind of pencils PepsiCo wants to use," she said in a
    statement. "We are talking about exploiting the remains of an aborted child
    for profit. Using human embryonic kidney to produce flavor enhancers for
    their beverages is a far cry from routine operations!"

    In its request to the SEC, PepsiCo argued that the shareholder resolution
    "probed too deeply into matters of a complex nature upon which shareholders
    cannot make an informed judgment." Responded an outraged Vinnedge: "In other
    words, PepsiCo thinks its stockholders are too stupid to understand what
    they are doing with the remains of aborted children." She added that "they
    are about to find out just how smart the public really is when they turn up
    the heat on the world-wide boycott!"

    Vinnedge noted that Pepsi's next product roll-out, scheduled for
    introduction in the next few weeks, will be Pepsi Next, which the company
    claims will have half the sugar and calories of regular Pepsi, but all the
    flavor. As reported by The New American last November, in an e-mail that
    brushed aside concerns about cells from aborted babies being used to enhance
    its products, "Pepsi pointed instead to the tradeoff, noting that the
    research would help the company create 'lower-calorie, great-tasting
    beverages for consumers.'" Wondered Vinnedge: "So is Pepsi Next the new
    Senomyx-PepsiCo creation?"

    On its website Senomyx explains that its flavor research programs "focus on
    the discovery and development of savory, sweet and salt flavor ingredients
    that are intended to allow for the reduction of MSG, sugar and salt in food
    and beverage products. Using isolated human taste receptors, we created
    proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems that provide a biochemical or
    electronic readout when a flavor ingredient interacts with the receptor."

    But Vinnedge said that what the company doesn't say is that it is using
    "human embryonic kidney cells taken from an electively aborted baby to
    produce those receptors." She emphasized that Senomyx "could easily have
    chosen animal, insect, or other morally obtained human cells expressing the
    G protein for taste receptors."

    PepsiCo had a significant financial incentive to convince the SEC to side
    with it against its shareholders. Less than a year ago it inked a
    $30-million dollar deal with Senomyx for the research company to develop
    artificial high-potency sweeteners for its products. Last year Vinnedge and
    an army of pro-life individuals contacted both companies, asking them to
    refrain from using fetal cells in the program, pointing out the existence of
    non-objectionable, fully viable alternatives.

    While Senomyx ignored the letter completely, Vinnedge recalled, Pepsi
    officials replied with a generic e-mail from "Pepsi Consumer Relations,"
    insisting that the company was "committed to using only the highest ethical
    methods in all aspects of our research." The e-mail added that the issue was
    "something we take very seriously, and we hold ourselves and all of our
    research partners to the same high standards as the world's leading research
    centers."

    Regarding its relationship with Senomyx and the use of fetal cells in flavor
    research, the Pepsi e-mail explained that the company utilizes "techniques
    that have been the gold standard for several decades by top universities,
    hospitals, U.S. government agencies, food and beverage companies, and
    essentially every pharmaceutical and biotech company in the world."

    That "gold standard" relies on the results of abortion, Vinnedge said,
    noting the irony of PepsiCo's own Code of Conduct, which includes the boast
    that the company deals "with customers, suppliers, the public and our
    competitors in an ethical and appropriate manner." Noted Vinnedge: "There is
    nothing ethical or appropriate in the way they are exploiting the remains of
    an innocent aborted child."

    In related news, Rebecca Taylor of the National Catholic Register reported
    that in Oklahoma, State Senator Ralph Shortey introduced a bill that would
    ban any product meant for human consumption that either contains tissue from
    aborted babies, or which in its research or development included the use of
    cells from aborted babies.

    Predictably, Shortey's effort to protect the unborn made him the object of
    ridicule among the national media and pro-abortion forces. Taylor noted that
    "when Shortey suggested that his bill was not simply about aborted fetuses
    in the food supply, but about companies using cells and tissues from aborted
    human beings to test or develop various chemicals, drugs or therapies, one
    angry commenter on the Huffington Post retorted, 'What companies? Name them.
    If you can't, then this is the rantings of a paranoid delusional.'"

    Taylor, a clinical laboratory specialist in molecular biology who writes
    about bioethics on her blog, took the challenge on behalf of Shortey,
    noting, as just one example, Neuralstem, "a Maryland company, which,
    according to a Bloomberg press release, has a stem-cell line that came from
    'fetal tissue donated by a woman who underwent an elective abortion at 8
    weeks.'" Taylor recalled that in 2010 "Neuralstem announced that it injected
    these stem cells from an aborted fetus directly into the spinal cord of a
    man with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which is better known as Lou
    Gehrig's disease."

    Taylor added that recently Neuralstem announced the discovery of a new drug
    that shows promise for the treatment of depression. In developing the
    potential drug, the company "tested several compounds using its stem-cell
    line to see which chemical showed promise in increasing the size of the
    hippocampus, a part of the brain that is shrunken in those who suffer from
    depression." While Neuralstem did not say if the stem-cell line it used came
    from an aborted baby, Taylor noted that "in academic publications listed on
    its website, the stem cells are described as 'fetal.'"

    Neuralstem is not the only company using such cells. Taylor's research
    actually came up with a list of a half dozen companies, including Senomyx,
    that use cells and tissues from aborted babies in their products and
    research. (View the list, along with company contact information, here.)

    Taylor reflected that without the "loud and continuous pressure" from
    individuals around the world who value and respect life, "the use of aborted
    fetal tissue to bring products to market will not only continue, it will
    expand. We live in a culture of death - a reality that means we truly do
    need labels that warn consumers: 'This product was made possible by the
    killing of innocent human life.'"
    "Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have."
    - Ronald Reagan

    I got me and my son off soda pop years and years ago. But a few days ago out of nowhere he walks in the door with a Pepsi. I said to him, you know that's crap, why did you buy it? I will make sure he knows about this now. I am sure that after I inform him, that swill will never pass his lips again.

    How disgusting.

    There was a thread on this a week, or two ago.......Aborted Fetus Cells are NOT in the mix........ They are used to TEST the
    flavor additives....NOT in the mix.....................

    It's not bad enough to have babies aborted, but instead of "disposing" of their remains in a dignified manner, they are used as laboratory experimentation and "testing." Like I said, it's all disgusting.

    Agreed mzKitty......absolutely.

    NO use of aborted babies should be allowed along with no aborted babies anymore.

    We do not drink sodas in this house and if it even says it is made by Pepsico company it won't be here either! Boycott the creeps.

    It's all a hideous cannibal killing machine to make "profit" for people who will do anything for money.

    I don't think if all the people knew what is up that they would tolerate it all much longer.

    oh, ok, i guess that makes it all ok then...

    but not for me.

    i was a Moxie-holic for decades, and after reading about the increased chances of pancreatic cancer from the high fructose corn syrup in sodas, i stopped cold about a few months ago. this new information (i missed the previous thread you refer to) has only solidified my position on the evils of corporation-produced foods and beverages.

    Posts:1,916They're not using those cells IN your soda; it's used to test the flavors in the development of the soda, and they're not taken from currently aborted babies. HEK293 is a cell line that started in the 1970s from human embryonic kidney cells. The line was cultured by scientist Alex Van der Eb in the early 1970s at his lab at the University of Leiden, Holland. Since then, the cell line has been cultured and grown in laboratories. So although the original HEK293 cells were taken from an aborted fetus, they're no longer taken that way.

    That being said, the whole idea seems rather gross to me. Then again, I don't drink soda or eat processed food.

    I gave up Pepsi and all diet soft drinks for Lent last year and have never looked back. Not even one twinge or urge to drink one. Nada. V

    ....and this makes it righteous? It makes me very angry if anyone justifies this as okay!
    I, honestly, do wonder how people can even question if the things coming against America is the judgement of God! We, honestly, deserve whatever comes our way.
    Not only do we reject God, but, then we throw this type of stuff in His face.
    I pray God's protection around His faithful children and servants.

    Even if it was just ONE life...does it make it worth it so you can have your stupid PEPSI?
    And it was FROM that baby and still IS from that baby's cells. No matter how you look at it.

    Seems alot and I mean ALOT of wicked science projects generate in labs in Holland....

    They use Aborted Fetal Tissue to culture Some vaccines also.
    Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. -Rocky Balboa~

    They are not paying for this research without the intent of using it somewhere. They are sick SOBs and a special place in hell is reserved for them. They should have been cuffed and tried. This is so beyound Hitlers wildest dreams. Must make him proud wherever in Hell he is placed.

    I never said it was ok!!! Merely pointing out that they are NOT IN the drink.
    So, people gave up Pepsi...good for you. It is not a healthy drink.
    Of all of the people who were railing against the use of these cells for testing..... How many of you
    wear make-up??? Just saying..........................

    Not me, and although I gave up soft drinks over 20 years ago, there will be no Pepsi products in this house for anyone. Some of us honestly care about this kind of stuff and try to avoid all things that aborted fetal tissue has any involvement with. I didn't spend over 14 years of my life saving babies in NICU to then support companies that have involvement with cells from aborted babies.

    Pro-Lifers have been warning about this dehumanization of unborn babies for decades.

    Now we have created a huge commercial market for aborted baby parts.

    Did we learn nothing from Dr. Mengele and his ilk?

    God created life, mankind destroys it. People who want to reject God will say if there is a God then why does he let bad things happen to little children, yada, yada, yada. Well, God also gave man free will, he was not a communist....lol....and this is not funny, but people are. It is mankind that hurts, maims, kills, etc. God offers mankind everything, if he will acknowledge him, and man in general just keeps passing the buck even onto God, never wanting to be accountable for himself and his own evil. God Help Us All!

    Giving up Pepsi Brands??

    Here they are:

    "I must not fear.
    Fear is the mind-killer.
    Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my fear.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

    Thanks, Chuck, for that extensive list and link. A couple more products I didn't realize were on the list will not be entering the house. Thankfully, we don't eat much of that stuff.

    Not only that......over time as this becomes more common place in the testing of product flavors (espcially with frankenstein foods) it will create a demand..........in the same way the demand for body organ transplants have seen questionable deaths of "undesirable citizens" aka homeless and the like.

    The killer is almost every Pepsi product is usless...........junk and a waste of money and consumption.......a health killer that will only increase medical costs on unhealthy addicts to their products over time.

    On the bigger picture here, the quest for profit in an ever expanding global market place of developed societies will be our downfall morally and/or environmentally if we do not invoke some level of social responsible regulations.......

    Aparently the SEC is not part of the legislation...............my guess is that it will be discovered that some Pepsico stock or monies will have ended up in the pockets of SEC regulators over this favored rullng to Pepsico.

    Amazing........other than bottled water there is only one other thing worth consuming which could be considered a nutritionally dense whole food and that is the Quaker Old Fashion Plain Oats.................(but I buy the generic brand whole oats)

    The rest of everything else is either process or loaded with sugar/artifical sweeteners.........

    These Last Days News - March 9, 2012

    Drug, Food, Cosmetic Companies are Using Aborted Baby Cells, Says Scientist...

    "Every man, woman, and child of the age of reason knows right from wrong, for he has been given an inborn conscience. At the moment of his conception life is within the womb, and at the moment of conception a life is forming, regardless of what the agents of hell now pollute the minds of mankind with, creating murders of the young! I say unto you, life begins at the moment of conception and all who extinguish this light are murderers, and without repentance shall be condemned to hell!" - Jesus, June 18, 1977

    LifeSiteNews.com reported on March 5, 2012

    While Pepsi has been in the spotlight lately for contracting with a company that uses cells originally derived from an aborted fetus in flavor research, it’s not the only company that pro-lifers should think about boycotting for such unethical practices, reports the National Catholic Register.

    Rebecca Taylor, a Technologist in Molecular Biology, has compiled a list of companies that use cells and tissues derived from aborted babies to develop their products, which range from childhood vaccines to cosmetics. Her list includes one English company, ReNeuron, which has applied for clinical trials in the United States.

    Here are the companies, with their contact information. To find out more about how these companies use cells derived from aborted fetuses, read the piece below.

    Morally Tainted: Products Made Possible by the Killing of Innocent Human Life...

    National Catholic Register reported on February 17, 2012

    Oklahoma state Sen. Ralph Shortey has introduced a bill to the Oklahoma Legislature that has caused quite a stir. S.B. 1418 says it would ban any product for human “consumption” that contains aborted human fetal tissue or where the research or development of any of the ingredients required the use of aborted fetal tissue.

    Now, currently, there are no aborted fetuses in any food products. But some pundits interpret “consumption” in this bill to mean not just food products, but any product humans “consume,” like drugs, vaccines, treatments or even beauty products.

    In the national response to S.B. 1418, the jokes about Soylent Green abound, and those from all political persuasions mocked Shortey as an idiot with nothing better to do than invent problems and waste taxpayer money.
