Martinsburg, WV – Since May of this year I have been following this story of PepsiCo’s relationship with Senomyx, a company that uses aborted baby parts in their flavor research. Over the last six month’s I’ve written several updates to the original article as I have chronicled the progress of the boycott and demand that PepsiCo find alternative sources for research; rather than partner with a company using aborted baby parts.
Now, a new report out states that PepsiCo shareholders have filed a complaint with the Securities and Exchange Commission and PepsiCo over the company’s continued partnership with Senomyx.
Since it was first discovered that PepsiCo was partnering with Senomyx and allowing aborted baby parts to be used in flavor testing, an outcry from the pro-life community has been steady against PepsiCo. After requests that PepsiCo either ask Senomyx to use morally appropriate forms of research or sever their ties with the company were ignored, a boycott was implemented.
Pro-life groups from across the country that have joined in the boycott are:
Pro-life groups joining Children of God for Life in the boycott to date are: American Life League, Life Issues Institute, Concerned Women for America, Colorado Right to Life, American Right to Life, Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute, ALL Arizona, Central Nebraskans for Life, Pro-Life Waco, Houston Coalition for Life, Mother and Unborn Baby Fox Valley, Womankind, Billboards for Life, Movement for a Better America, Defenders of the Unborn, Focus Pregnancy Help Center, Idaho Chooses Life, EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers of NY, Four Seasons for Life, CREDO, Life Choices, STOPP Dallas, CA Right To Life, Human Life Alliance, International Right to Life Federation, Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. LifeNews.com has joined the boycott call as well.
