Pepsi stops supporting the Cannibalize Babies Industry. Make it unprofitable and even the most Evillest of EvilCorps will obey the Bottom Line.

    yay! There are still a lot of pharmaceuticle companies that use one strain or another of an aborted baby in vaccinations.

  • victor

    This is a relief, for so many reasons.

  • ds

    Great, now that baby will not have been aborted in the early 1970’s.

      If someone is murdered does it help or hurt to a) give them a decent burial or b) chop of their corpse and sell it to a meat market?

      • ds

        Will any action by Pepsi’s contracted researcher prevent or cause either a) or b)?

        • Jared

          They are treating the remains of a human being in a disgusting fashion. It’s not about saving the life of the aborted fetus (obviously), it’s about respecting his or her death.

  • ds… Surely it’s reasonable for someone opposed to abortion to deny support to a corporation that PROFITS from it.

  • quasimodo

    it is not to be opposed because it might stop past atrocities. it is opposed that atrocities might not happen in the future and because opposition to this abuse of human life is simply right.

  • I’m sorry, but the statement by Pepsi seems to more more like a simple denial than a promise of amendment. They are saying “we do not use fetal cells in any way in preparing our products,” not “we did do this and we’re stopping it.” (I think the evidence they did do it was pretty good). I would like to see a more detailed story.

  • Yes there are bunches of aborted fetal cells used in bunches of ways, but celebrating the discontinuing of the use is important too! It reinvigorates the troops for more fighting, and gives them the sense that the fighting is worthwhile. It matters.

    In a letter to her [Debi Vinnedge of the pro-life group Children of God for Life] group, PepsiCo’s VP of Global Public Policy, Paul Boykas stated that “Senomyx will not use HEK cells or any other tissues or cell lines derived from human embryos or fetuses for research performed on behalf of PepsiCo.”

    “We took the matter very seriously,” stated Mr. Boykas. “We have an official Statement on Responsible Research and we intend to live by that policy.”
