Little upsets pro-life people more than learning that things they consider innocent are actually tainted with the shedding of innocent blood. This long list of guilt-ridden products includes childhood vaccines, wrinkle creams and even your favorite soft drinks and chewing gum
The problem is, it’s hard to keep it all straight even if you are trying to avoid putting products in you that are obtained through the death of a baby. Fortunately, Children of God for Life has produced an easy reference guide—a one page list of fetal call products. CLICK HERE FOR A PDF DOWNLOAD OF FETAL CELL PRODUCTS.
It’s also important to note that financial support of any company using fetal cells for its products keeps them afloat. In the case of Pepsi, Frito-Lay, Nestle, Kraft, Cadbury, et. al., many have chosen to abstain from all of the company’s products (myself included) until they find better ways to test flavor receptors than the cells of an aborted baby. Many people have accused those reporting on this to be spreading rumors, but they are substantiated facts. Even PepsiCo’s shareholders, who are not a religious or pro-life group, filed a resolution with the government office, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to demand they stop using fetal cell derived products because it was unnecessary and hurting business.
Additionally, many other companies are using fetal cells as a regular product ingredient in vaccines, skin creams, and other items. These days it seems like you have to do research on everything you buy to be sure an aborted baby didn’t help supply it. You can find some general background on what we have called the “Industry of Death” by clicking on this tag and reading (in reverse order, since it’s ordered by date).
Tragically, our American economy is fueled in part by what happens after a baby is aborted. The products mentioned above are only a beginning. Currently there are companies doing research on aborted fetal cells to create other products. Many argue that “the baby was going to die anyway, so at least some good came of it.” That’s a frightening line of thinking. Babies do not have to die for our taste buds, vaccines, or skin creams. We must resist this twisted reasoning by resisting the economic pressure.
Fortunately, various organizations, such as Children of God for Life (whose website is filled with documentation, research and scientific facts to support their information), have given us resources like this list. Let’s use it and resist the ideology that sacrifices babies for our convenience.
