Obama agency rules Pepsi's use of aborted fetal cells in soft drinks constitutes 'ordinary business operations'

(NaturalNews) The Obama Administration has given its blessing to PepsiCo to continue utilizing the services of a company that produces flavor chemicals for the beverage giant using aborted human fetal tissue. LifeSiteNews.com reports that the Obama Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) has decided that PepsiCo's arrangement with San Diego, Cal.-based Senomyx, which produces flavor enhancing chemicals for Pepsi using human embryonic kidney tissue, simply constitutes "ordinary business operations."

Why does this post stink of

Why does this post stink of guano?

Look it up! Pepsi -Co is minute maid for starters and 100s of

your everyday brands. Basically anything w a barcode-skip it
= the mark of the beast. Just Google Pepsic - it's huge! No wonder corporations were not allowed for the first century in our republic!


Who still drinks this stuff anyway?

If it was not for their other companies they would be history imo.

Is Dr. Pepper a Pepsi product?


I think Dr. Pepper

is distributed by different companies depending where you live.

Defend Liberty!

You are right

I just read that Coca Cola signed a 715 million dollar deal with Dr. Pepper for this privilege regarding some Dr. Pepper products in 2010.

Btw, very interesting facts on Coca Cola I recently viewed as well.....

"1.Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.B) — 73,997,400 shares, 49.75% of the total portfolio.
(Bill Gates in on the board of Berkshire Hathaway along with the Coca-Cola Company's director and former president Donald Keough.)
2.McDonald's Corp. (MCD) — 9,372,500 shares, 5.21% of the total portfolio.
3.Caterpillar Inc. (CAT) — 9,590,400 shares, 4.86% of the total portfolio.
4.The Coca-Cola Company (KO) — 10,182,000 shares, 4.31% of the total portfolio.
5.Waste Management Inc. (WM) — 15,716,367 shares, 4.15% of the total portfolio.
Bill Gates as of 6/30/2010 owns 5,616,561 shares of Coca-Cola"

p.s. just read that Buffet also owned or owns the Encylcopedia Britannica lol ...it is going out of print due to the WWW. Last edition was 2010 worth about 1300 bucks I think.


Thanks, Also I saw that McDonalds sits on the board with

a huge defense contractor. It might have been McDonald Douglas. They now have pink slime. The Hawaii Dept of Ed just can't decide whether to keep feeding it to our children or not. it's ammonia! America- drugged and poisioned into stupidity!

Again, just to be clear on this!

While this is terrible for what it really is, don't be naive and call it what it isn't.

There is no human fetal anything in any products. What this Senomyx company did was use embryonic kidney tissue to develop a receptor test to determine which chemicals trigger which chemical reactions in humans. It is still disgusting and totally backwards, but it isn't ingesting human biological material.

Also, to my understanding, they don't need a continued supply of embryos now that they got HEK293 (though it took 293 experiments to get there). But the fact they're allowed to do this in the first place is disturbing. This certainly isn't the "cure alzheimer's/undue paralysis" BS they usually try to justify stem-cell/embryonic tissue research with.

Here's some details (from http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/09/0...):
"Senomyx is a high tech research and development business that is "dedicated to finding new flavors to reduce sugars and reduce salt." But their focus is not on whole, organic fruits and vegetables, or grass-pastured meats, dairy and eggs. Senomyx develops patented flavor enhancers by using "proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems."

That's a testing system that provides scientists with biochemical responses and electronic readouts when a flavor ingredient interacts with their patented receptor, letting researchers know whether or not their flavor enhancer is effective. The receptors are made from HEK293 -- HEK stands for Human Embryonic Kidney cells, with 293 denoting that the HEK was from the 293rd experiment. HEK293 originally came from a healthy, electively aborted baby whose cells were then harvested and cloned."


I know that sodas aren't especially healthful, but dang it I love a cold soda now and then. Henceforth, I will Never drink a major corporation's soda product again. Only specialty sodas from independent breweries for me!

Illegal! Violates Natural Law!


It sets a very disturbing precedence. Just pushing the enevelope further. People are quite justified in electing not to purchase Pepsi products after this revelation.


There is no "flavoring"

which requires the use of human fetus cells.

If they are putting them in there, it's for a reason other than "flavoring".

My two first guesses would be
1) Reward the abortion provider industry with profits from the fetuses that they kill, as a way of supporting the human flesh trafficking industry which the left and the NWO promotes.

2) Ensuring that large segments of the population are consuming some quantity of human flesh, as either a method of inducing cannibalism in the population, or as some unknown form of sacrfice to some demon that they worship.

We do know that Pepsico is hugely left-wing oriented, and also big in the NWO. Between the evil residing in those groups, there's no telling what kinds of deviancy might be involved.

Yes, Awarded

I still say the 1/2 billion eggs that were "thrown away" supposedly no good were "awarded" to the vaccine makers.

This is hard to believe. This

This is hard to believe.
This must be an urban legend.

Why would a soft drink company use flavorings derived from aborted fetal cells?

Such cells seem like they'd be in short supply (my understanding is that aborted fetuses are dumped into garbage).

Also, this seems like a high cost.

Finally, why fetal cells? Why not some other source, like animals?

This does not sound real as it doesnt seem to make any sense.

You'd make the sensationalist media proud.

They are using cells from aborted fetuses to create artificial taste receptors and use said artificial receptors to test flavor chemicals. They are not flavoring Pepsi with dead babies.

You missed the point. Without

You missed the point. Without a supply of aborted fetuses they cannot make these artificial taste receptors. Therefore, as a for-profit business, PepsiCo would likely support pro-abortion legislation, i.e., the funding of Planned Parenthood and the likes.


Someone please tell me this is not actually true

"A few months later, Pepsi' shareholders filed a resolution petitioning the company to "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." But the Obama Administration shut down this 36-page proposal, deciding instead that Pepsi's used of aborted babies to flavor its beverage products is just business as usual, and not a significant concern."

Why would the Obama Administration even be involved in a matter such as this between a company and its shareholders. Natural News doesn't provide much backup for this article.

just don't put them in stem cells...

thats a whole other distraction!

The devil drinks Pepsi, Jesus

The devil drinks Pepsi, Jesus drinks Coke.

So weird...

does this mean you're a cannibal if you drink pepsi?

what about mexican pepsi is that people free?

Abort Pepsi

It doesn't actually go into the Pepsi (who knows though). I think they just use it to help create the flavor they're going to use. Evil nonetheless.

I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: "O Lord make my enemies ridiculous." And God granted it.

Simple Solution:

Don't drink Pepsi. We need to boycott products from these mega-corps that have just gotten out of control. I don't understand how the use of fetal cells could possibly be necessary to test soda flavors... Its a sick sad world.

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

I know, this sort of thing is

I know, this sort of thing is so wrong and disgusting I bet The Onion had a news article planned on this, but had to can it when they realised it's actually a true story.

This is why I'm an orange juice person :P

No, not the bottled orange juice, actually orange squeezed by myself-juice :P

I don't trust these companies, and soft drinks are not good for your health anyway :P. Now that I have given up my coffee addiction, I feel much happier LOL XD

If you click on the link

and read the article, be sure to look on that page at the end of the article for the TSA video. Very funny...well, sad in its' truth though.

I stopped drinking Pepsi products

years ago. This is absolutely terrible.

I avoided soft drinks all my life

Here is a must read article on soft drinks:

What the hell! This cannot be

What the hell! This cannot be true. I'm in no way against scientific progress but this is crossing the line big time if it is true. Makes me sick!

Read the article carefully, Title is misleading

"To be clear, the aborted fetal tissue used to make Pepsi's flavor chemicals does not end up in the final product sold to customers, according to reports -- it is used, instead, to evaluate how actual human taste receptors respond to these chemical flavorings."

I'm curious how you even go

I'm curious how you even go about BUYING such things.. Is there an aborted fetus black market? er? Can someone explain this from the source so I can avoid ANY company that purchases such things?
