Pro-Life Groups: Boycott Pepsi for Using Aborted Fetal Cell Lines
Washington, DC -- Dozens of pro-life groups are calling on pro-life Americans to boycott PepsiCo because it has contracted with a company that uses fetal cells from babies victimized by abortions to test and produce artificial flavor enhancers.

If this is true then this is BEYOUND goulish.
Ewww, that can’t help with the taste.
Try New “Pepsi DNA” - now with TWICE the fetal cell content of our closest competitor!
“The drink with better flavor than THIS one hasn’t been born yet!”
Seriously, doesn’t a food product made using cells from dead baby skirt dangerously close to cannibalism?
Okay. It’s still pretty darned ghoulish, but apparently not cannibalistic.
The fetal stem cells are used to ‘test’ the sweetener in some way.
makes me want to barf the diet wild cherry pepsi I’m drinking,...better buy some zero later
fyi for any possible pepsi drinkers
But the govt is going to ban certain health supplements? Yet this is ok?
The Taste of a New Generation?
The company is TESTING products on receptors that come from clones of clones of clones of ... cells that came from an abortion that occurred 40 years ago.
These are used for many, many things. I would be very surprised if there’s a single FReeper who hasn’t used products benefitting from this cell line.
Pepsi owns KFC, pizza hut, taco bell
I’ve already been boycotting Pepsi for their substandard flavor and Obama-esque new logo, so consider it done!
Someone remind me: There was a Pepsi ad in China which translated “Pepsi brings life” in a way which made it seem like they were claiming to resurrect your dead ancestors?
“Pepsi owns KFC, pizza hut, taco bell”
These were spun off some time ago.
I believe you are confusing Pepsi with Coke. The offending ad was “Coke adds life!” Which when translated into Chinese was, “Coke brings your ancestors back from the dead!”
Wrong. Pepsi does NOT own KFC, pizza hut OR taco bell, although it used to.
Those chains are now owned by “Yum! Brands”.
I checked it out with snopes.com.
(Yes, I know snopes is just two liberals and their computer.)
According to them, the offending phrase was supposedly “Come alive with Pepsi,” although in reality, the U.S. ad campaign was “Come alive; you’re in the Pepsi generation.” They claim there’s no record of the campaign in China, but Pepsi has never denied it.
Other potentially mythical blunders:
These are the nominees for the Chevy Nova Award. This is
given out in honor of the GM’s fiasco in trying to market this
car in Central and South America. “No va” means, of course,
in Spanish, “it doesn’t go”.
1. The Dairy Association’s huge success with the campaign
“Got Milk?” prompted them to expand advertising to Mexico. It
was soon brought to their attention the Spanish translation
read “Are you lactating?”
2. Coors put its slogan, “Turn It Loose,” into Spanish, where
it was read as “Suffer From Diarrhea.”
3. Scandinavian vacuum manufacturer Electrolux used the
following in an American campaign: “Nothing sucks like an
4. Clairol introduced the “Mist Stick,” a curling iron, into
Germany only to find out that “mist” is slang for manure. Not
too many people had use for the “Manure Stick.”
5. When Gerber started selling baby food in Africa, they used
the same packaging as in the US, with the smiling baby on the
label. Later they learned that in Africa, companies routinely
put pictures on the labels of what’s inside, since many people
6. Colgate introduced a toothpaste in France called Cue, the
name of a notorious porno magazine.
7. An American T-shirt maker in Miami printed shirts for the
Spanish market which promoted the Pope’s visit. Instead of “I
saw the Pope” (el Papa), the shirts read “I Saw the Potato”
8. Pepsi’s “Come Alive With the Pepsi Generation” translated
into “Pepsi Brings Your Ancestors Back From the Grave” in
9. The Coca-Cola name in China was first read as “Kekoukela”,
meaning “Bite the wax tadpole” or “female horse stuffed with
wax”, depending on the dialect. Coke then researched 40,000
characters to find a phonetic equivalent “kokou kole”,
translating into “happiness in the mouth.”
10. Frank Perdue’s chicken slogan, “It takes a strong man to
make a tender chicken” was translated into Spanish as “it
takes an aroused man to make a chicken affectionate.”
11. When Parker Pen marketed a ball-point pen in Mexico, its
ads were supposed to have read, “It won’t leak in your pocket
and embarrass you.”
The company thought that the word “embarazar” (to impregnate)
meant to embarrass, so the ad read: “It won’t leak in your
pocket and make you pregnant!”
12. When American Airlines wanted to advertise its new
leather first class seats in the Mexican market, it translated
its “Fly In Leather” campaign literally, which meant “Fly Naked” (vuela en cuero)
Feed the children....to the people... .
the CEO of pepsi is creepy scary and that is ON TOP of being a leftist liberal. (i think her sister is the creepy school administrator from the phoenix potter movie)
Testing of the artificial sweeteners doesn’t put the aborted baby body parts into the canned drinks. But the lack of moral foundation that allows pepsi, inc. to ignore such a practice IS getting into their cans.
I have boycotted pepsi ever since they crafted their logo to resemble zer0’s and were blatantly supporting him in the election.
What marketing genius thought this one up? If Pepsi uses aborted babies’ fetal cells in its products or to test its products, it is going to be incredibly damaging. I will stop using any Pepsi product and I’m sure a lot of other people will too. Even if they are not strongly Pro-Life. It is absolutely ghoulish.
In that case, I call on all freepers to boycott themselves for the good of huge manatees.
Vaccine makers use the same fetal cells.
Seeing how ALI and RTL both of state chapters, and most Catholic parishes have a pro-life organization, I find the claim very easy to believe.
What happens to a person that drinks something that has had a lack of moral foundation put into the can along with the soda?
Please see Post#7.
Oh, and by the way, I was making a JOKE.
Crap. I HATE Diet Coke...
I agree. Especially since I keep reading it as FECAL cell.
I apologize for making my pun too oblique ... the cans are the backsides of those who sell their souls for the empowerment they can gain.
Some not all. And you can actually request from the pediatrician that vaccines not produced this way be used on your child.
No problem, I usually only get puns that are parallel or maybe perpendicular on a good day.
Yes, I see that you got it wrong in #7, also.
Oh, and by the way, I was making a JOKE.
That's why you had to explain it in #7, eh?
There, I laughed.
Anytime I see LifeNews.com, I get very suspicious.
You really ARE an a$$hole, aren’t you?
“Coors put its slogan, Turn It Loose, into Spanish, where
it was read as Suffer From Diarrhea.
Here’s the paper:
Some vaccines are only produced using cells from those aborted babies. I used to have a link to a chart, but I lost the link when my computer crashed. For example, there are no chicken pox vaccines available that have not used those cells.
That is just disgusting... And people drink for this?
What makes you think Coke and other food companies are not using suppliers using clones of same cells?
Nestlé, finally admitted its relationship with Senomyx and company officials claimed the line of cells from abortions was well established in scientific research.
Charming response from them, eh?
Anytime I see or hear of an article that starts like this, i get very suspicious.....>>>>>
