Disclaimer: This is not goingt to be a very popular post. But again, I feel it is something I need to share.
Earlier in the year I read an article about how the Pepsi Company is using aborted fetal tissue in their products for flavor enhancing research.
On Feb 28th, President Obama’s Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) ruled that PepsiCo’s use of cells derived from aborted fetal remains in their research and development agreement with Senomyx to produce flavor enhancers falls under “ordinary business operations.”
According to LifeSiteNews.com,
The letter signed by Attorney Brian Pitko of the SEC Office of Chief Counsel was sent in response to a 36-page document submitted by PepsiCo attorneys in January, 2012. In that filing, PepsiCo pleaded with the SEC to reject the Shareholder’s 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.”Being pro-life, I was saddened and disgusted by this news.
PepsiCo lead attorney George A. Schieren noted that the resolution should be excluded because it “deals with matters related to the company’s ordinary business operations” and 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.”
I just can not figure out why this world puts such little value on the life of our precious babies, but that is just my pro-life opinion.
Now yesterday I read another article that brought this all back fresh to me.
This article was titled, Avoid Any Products Containing Aborted Fetal Cells. This article goes into a bit more detail. Details like why there is such a demand for abortion.
Fetal tissue has been used for transplants and in vaccines for quite a while now but medical community is getting a little too excited and is claiming unlimited potential for fetal tissue technology. It is really just so disturbing.
Researchers say the timing of the abortion is important because a more matured fetus produces better fetal tissue. Most abortions take place between the sixth and eleventh week of pregnancy, but researchers are saying that fetuses that are fourteen to sixteens weeks are better and more valuable.
Again, this disgusts me.
PepsiCo’s statement about all of this?
They say ‘this will produce great tasting, lower-calorie beverages.’
