OK, I'm not linking anything, because I want to know what you already know. I searched and I'm conflicted on what I found. Is Pepsi doing something immoral for flavor research? They're apparently connected to some company that is accused of using aborted fetus cells for flavor testing, but nobody seems to ever admit they're ACTUALLY linked to aborted fetus cells. It's all very confusing. From the research I did it seems to be true though, but they're saying it in such a way that nobody will be angry with them...but I'm disgusted by the thought...I understand I'm not like drinking an aborted fetus if I pick up a Pepsi (which BTW I don't actually drink cuz I don't drink pop...but hubby...). And that seems to be what the people fighting against these claims are saying, they're saying that the pro-life groups doing this are over reacting and making over the top claims, but they don't ever go out and say their claims are just flat out untrue, just that they're overstating them.
I'm not sure about what companies are doing it, but I read something about certain states (maybe? not entirely clear on where exactly but somewhere in the US) were testing flavours or food additives on aborted fetuses. I didn't read the whole thing because it disgusted me. What site(s) have you seen this on?
This is horribly sad to me, if it's true. How disgusting is that, and completely disrespectful to an innocent tiny human. It breaks my heart. As if abortion isn't bad enough.
It got posted in my DDCs facebook group, and it is like a 2 year old story and I haven't heard about it before. DH went and looked it up of course and says it isn't true, but he read the same stuff I did and he just has a different way of looking at it, because I read the same stuff and think it is true. But that's why I was hoping somebody knew about this, I don't and from googling it I didn't feel I knew the answer still.
I've read of this in several places as well. I haven't looked into it because I don't buy it, but I still feel like I should, just to be well aware. I have gotten articles from Life news sites about it, and it does seem true if all that info is accurate.
I found out yesterday that Kohls is on a boycott list for pro-life stuff. I haven't looked into the claims, but, this will devistate me to find out it's true. Kohls is about the only place I can buy clothing where I live. I'll make that sacrifice if I need to.
I think about what it means to be pro-life now, and it really scares me for my children and the persecution they may face to stand for truth.
I haven't heard anything about Kohls, but I do know I don't shop there, so that won't be an issue for me if there are issues with them. My big issue though is Pepsi probably makes a lot of things I don't know they make.
