Remember my post Soylent Green? Well, I have more information. According to LifeSiteNews, the watchdog group Children of God for Life reports that the aborted fetal tissue is used to test artificial food flavorings used by several large companies. The company using the aborted fetal tissue, Senomyx, is partnered with Kraft, Nestlé and Pepsico. Two other food companies, Campbell Soup and Solae were also partnered with Senomyx, but have severed ties because of letters written by people like you and me asking them to stop.

And so I sent the following letters. Please join me. You can make a difference. You can copy these, or use your own words. You can send the letters online or on paper. Paper mail is probably more effective, but whether or not you send paper mail please take a minute to send it electronically. It just takes a minute and costs you nothing.
Dear ______,

I was shocked to find out that you are partnered with a company, Senomyx, that uses aborted fetal tissue to test its products. I am writing this letter to ask you to immediately sever all ties with Senomyx. My support for your company depends on it.

If you are unaware, Semnomyx is using HEK 293 – human embryonic kidney cells taken from an aborted baby - to produce their proprietary taste receptor-based assay system. They could have easily chosen COS (monkey) cells, Chinese Hamster Ovary cells, insect cells or other morally obtained human cells expressing the G protein for taste receptors to produce these assays, but instead chose to use cells obtained by the death of a child.

I urge you to drop all ties with Senomyx unless or until they change their methodology to an ethically sound one. I would appreciate a response.

The letters are for
