Obama agency rules Pepsi use of cells derived from aborted fetus ‘ordinary business’
Life Site News ^| 3/5/2012 | John Henry Weston

LARGO, FL, March 5, 2012 ( LifeSiteNews.com )- The Pepsi Company, which is set to release the new product Pepsi Next in the coming weeks, is facing a more robust boycott as pro-life activists protest the company use of cells derived from an aborted fetus in flavor-enhancing research. But Pepsi has succeeded, with help from the Obama Administration, in keeping its controversial operations from consideration by its shareholders.

In a decision delivered 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.”

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.”

Click “like” if you want to end abortion!

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.”

Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director of Children of God for Life, the organization that exposed the PepsiCo-Senomyx collaboration last year was “appalled by the apathy and insensitivity” of both PepsiCo executives and the Obama administration.

“We’re not talking about what kind of pencils PepsiCo wants to use – we are talking about exploiting the remains of an aborted child for profit,” she said.“Using human embryonic kidney (HEK-293) to produce flavor enhancers for their beverages is a far cry from routine operations!”

PepsiCo also requested the resolution be excluded because it “probed too deeply into matters of a complex nature upon which shareholders cannot make an informed judgment.”

“In other words, PepsiCo thinks its stockholders are too stupid to understand what they are doing with the remains of aborted children,” Vinnedge stated.“Well they are about to find out just how smart the public really is when they turn up the heat on the world-wide boycott!”

Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey has proposed a bill SB1418 banning the sale of products that are developed with or contain aborted fetal remains. In the case of Pepsi products, the cells derived from the aborted fetus do not end up in the final product.

“We commend the Senator for his courageous move,” noted Vinnedge.“The public is already saying no thanks to all Pepsi beverages and Pepsi Next is just that – the “next” product to avoid!”

To date, the world-wide boycott has expanded to include Canada, Germany, Poland, UK, Ireland, Scotland, Spain, Portugal, Australia and New Zealand.

I don't trust religious organizations with "news" like that. They tend to either exaggerate the truth or make something up completely to get their religious points across. Sounds more like their attempt to ban abortion AND an unhealthy soft drink at the same time, as well as insult our president... they probably still think he's the Muslim anti-Christ too, eh? LOL.

I wouldn't want to drink it endsense. But I am for stem cell research to help diseases and paralysis. There could be plenty saved from embryonic cords even no one had abortions. (China probably has enough for the world.)

Well if you look at it that way it could, but with all due respect to the anti abortionists a fetus is not really a baby it is cells, and the stem cells are supposed to enhance flavor. But I mean really it is sick, human cells are not made to be consumed. Don't get me wrong I am against abortion, but it is the peoples choice if they want to have an abortion. But if a fetus should be aborted it should be for stem cell research to find a cure for cancers and other diseases, Not profit on Pepsi's behalf.

Th fetus (baby) moves around and has a detectable heartbeat at 6 weeks conception. Has fingers, toes and eyes....sounds like a person to me, just a ity-bity one.

Actually it doesn't have fingers since its arms haven't fully developed and it doesn't have eyes yet since they too are still forming.
So sure it is.
That's why it can survive outside the womb at 6 weeks developed...because its a person.

I detect a hint of sarcasm or possibly just being a pure smarta@@, but whatever the point that you are making....I take it that you don't believe in the sanctity of life.

Not a smart ass. Being honest. Logical.
I'm against war and the inhuman treatment of human beings so the sanctity of life is not an issue.

I'm for stem cell research also. I'm also for abortion depending on the circumstances. In short, I don't approve of abortion as a get out of jail free card. If the mothers life is in danger, rape, incest, things along those lines, yes, I approve of abortion. As for putting actual stem cells in our food, sounds like a bunch of BS to me. I can't imagine a corp of the caliber of Pepsi willing to risk even remotely considering something like that. Seems to me it's more along the lines of an attack on Obama. The SEC wouldn't have much of a say so in Pepsi or anyone else puts in their consumables anyway. The FDA would. And it's not Obama's SEC either. It's OUR SEC.
