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, 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.Read rest of article here

UPDATE: Here is some of the line of products. Sadly I have a couple products I didn’t know were PepsiCo products I am now going to avoid.

    The practice by pepsico mak,es me sick. And the SEC makes me angry. It is not ordinary business. It’s something else and I think most people know what that is.

      Thank you for your reply.

      It’s not easy changing purchasing habits simply due to often forgetting every product the company sells but I’m doing my best not to put a dime in their pockets. I’m not out calling for boycott but I am doing my part to tell people what is going on and challenging them to look into their own souls.

    This is unbelievably disgusting! America will reap the whirlwind for murdering and cannibalizing the most innocent of the human race.

    As for Pepsico, I am engaging in a complete boycott of their products. I won’t even use them if they are free!

      I have updated the post with visuals of PepsiCo products and the link to that page. Hopefully people like us will start making themselves and others aware of this disgusting practice.

      Personally I would have no issue with non fetal stem cells being used for this purpose and history so far has shown non fetal stem cell to be far more useful in stem cells research so there is likely a secondary agenda behind using fetal stem cells.

Toss in your "two cents" if you care to. Fair warning, you might get change ;-)
