Watchwoman: Congratulations! Pepsi Stops Using Aborted Fetal Cell Lines to Test Flavors because of YOU activists! I have heard from many of my best friends who are pro-life, conservative, real Christians who have been subscribers to my FREE Word Warriorette Group < Click to right → to join → only one email a day → http://groups.yahoo.com/group/WordWarriorette/ > that they are sick and tired of never getting any really significant changes in anything in DC despite all their efforts to write letters to their legislators not only in DC but at the state level. Alas, just because those whiners don’t believe in God’s Power, that list should not include YOU! Activism pays off. If you don’t think so, look at the success that Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Ariana Huffington and all the libs have had. They have stolen your country from you and the sodomites have learned how to do it from them and they are going to steal the next generation. Christian Americans, activism pays off and here’s an example of HOW PRO-LIFE ACTIVISM has paid off. Please, know that discouragement is the best tool the devil ever devised to block you pro-lifers, the best highly moraled Christians into apathy and depression! Well, get out of it now, because we have the biggest fight of all time advancing as you sit there reading this, they are taking action encouraged on every sodomite Facebook page, social media and website, in the streets of every city and by sodomite lobbyists in Washington DC and your state capital, so get off your depressed butts and get to work! Work like Jesus worked for you! Quit crying over Bachmann and Santorum dropping and work the soles off the bottom of your shoes to defeat Obama this November, starting this second! Quit whining and get active for Christ. OK, now that I have ripped a new hole in your eardrums, read about SUCCESS below!!! Be encouraged because you are either part of the problem or part of the solution. You cannot serve two masters, apathy and activity! Apathy is evil. Activity is righteousness for Christ! SO — MOVE IT! You are in the Army of God and once a Christian Soldier, always a Christian soldier! ▬ Donna Calvin
Say “Thank you, PepsiCo!”

After months of pro-life protests and opposition, PepsiCo has indicated it will alter its contract with biotech firm Senomyx Inc., which uses cells from a baby killed in an abortion to conduct flavor testing.The second-largest beverage company in the world contracted with the firm in a $30 million deal in August 2010 and once Debi Vinnedge of the pro-life group Children of God for Life uncovered the connection, numerous pro-life groups, including LifeNews, joined together to promote a boycott of Pepsi until it ends the Senomyx contract.
Vinnedge informed LifeNews today of Pepsi’s decision and hailed it as a major breakthrough and achievement by thousands of concerned consumers who have been writing and boycotting PepsiCo beverages since last May.
In a letter to her group, PepsiCo’s VP of Global Public Policy, Paul Boykas stated that “Senomyx will not use HEK cells or any other tissues or cell lines derived from human embryos or fetuses for research performed on behalf of PepsiCo.”
“We took the matter very seriously,” stated Mr. Boykas. “We have an official Statement on Responsible Research and we intend to live by that policy.”
That policy precludes any research by PepsiCo — or third parties they fund — from using human tissue or cell lines derived from embryos or babies who are victimized by abortions.
Vinnedge told LifeNews the PepsiCo decision means an immediate end to the boycott that began in May 2011– welcome news to both PepsiCo and their customers who have abstained from their favorite beverages in protest.
“We are absolutely thrilled with PepsiCo’s decision. They have listened to their customers and have made both a wise and profound statement of corporate integrity that deserves the utmost respect, admiration and support of the public.”
“Senomyx receives royalties for products sold using their ingredients. If they do not use aborted fetal cell lines, they offend no one; if they do, they most certainly offend at least half of US consumers who are pro-life. But Children of God for Life also heard from a number of women who stated they were pro choice yet this use of aborted fetal cell lines, crossed the line and angered them as well,” she added.
“If for no other reason, it only makes financial sense for both Senomyx and their collaborators to avoid a substantial loss of potential market,” Vinnedge said. “Senomyx needs to stop using the aborted fetal cell lines entirely and we will continue to pressure them to do so.”
Vinnedge noted that the company had conducted internal discussions, recognizing it was a highly sensitive and controversial subject that was not in the best interests of PepsiCo.
Brad Mattes, Executive Director of Life Issues Institute, one of thirty-five pro-life organizations that joined Children of God for Life in the boycott, also weighed in on the decision.

“We are grateful to PepsiCo and especially to all those who sent a loud and clear message to the management of this company. It’s incumbent upon us to closely monitor the situation to be sure that PepsiCo remains true to their word,” he said. “There are moral cell lines Senomyx can and should be using — not just for PepsiCo research but for all their customers.”
Vinnedge is strongly encouraging the public to take one more important step: write to PepsiCo and thank them — and then go buy your favorite Pepsi products to celebrate.
“Too often we seem to focus on the negatives and forget to take the time to let others know we appreciate their efforts,” stated Vinnedge. “It is our sincere hope that the public will once again rise to the occasion en masse as they did in the boycott — but this time in appreciation and support of PepsiCo.”
