It’s no secret that many devout Christians choose Coke over their competitor, due to the fact that Pepsi openly supports homosexuality. However, there is an even more sinister reason to steer clear of the beverage brand which the company does their best to cover up.
Pepsi’s cringe-worthy practices were first exposed when Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey introduced a bill which would ban food products developed using aborted fetal material in his state. Pepsi is one of a handful of companies who pay to have their products tested by a company called Senomyx, which uses the cells of aborted babies.
Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director of Children of God for Life, stated:
“PepsiCo has the ability to request that Senomyx use one of the morally acceptable cell lines available. Unlike Campbell Soup who listened to the public and severed ties with Senomyx, PepsiCo has referred to the research as the ‘gold standard’ for the industry; they have openly misled the public and created a public relations nightmare for themselves! We stand firmly and proudly behind Senator Shortey who had the courage to step forward and protect the people of his State who have a right to know about these products.”
USA News First reported that over 30 pro-life groups are now actively boycotting Pepsi in nearly a dozen countries. Attorneys for the soda giant responded with a 36 page plea to the SEC in an attempt to quash the information that they test using aborted fetus cells. The SEC has not made a ruling as of yet.
