Biotech Company Using Aborted Fetal Cells to Test Flavor Enhancers

This sounds like a sick joke out of a Jonathan Swift  story, but it's not.  Children of God for Life reports that an American company named Senomyx uses cells from aborted fetuses to test their products.

Senomyx website states that “The company's key flavor programs focus on the discovery and development of savory, sweet and salt flavor ingredients that are intended to allow for the reduction of MSG, sugar and salt in food and beverage products....Using isolated human taste receptors, we created proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems that provide a biochemical or electronic readout when a flavor ingredient interacts with the receptor.”
Senomyx notes their collaborators provide them research and development funding plus royalties on sales of products using their flavor ingredients.
“What they do not tell the public is that they are using HEK 293 – human embryonic kidney cells taken from an electively aborted baby to produce those receptors”, stated Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director for Children of God for Life, a pro-life watch dog group that has been monitoring the use of aborted fetal material in medical products and cosmetics for years.
 The group has contacted various food companies that do business with Senomyx, calling on them to sever their ties with the company.  Only one so far, Campbell soup, has responded that they no longer do business with Senomyx.  While Pepsico, Nestle, Kraft and Solae continue to fund Senomyx according to the Children of God website.

It's almost unbelievable that we tolerate this type of horrifying practice in our country.  An aborted child is now being sold to bio research companies for parts. 

Please contact these companies to insist they sever their relationship with Senomyx now:
