EWTN Catholic Q&A
Aborted Fetal Tissue Used?
Question from Anon on 01-24-2013:

Hi Judie, my mom recently sent me an article that claims that aborted fetal cells are used to test products such as common Pepsi soft drinks, certain Nestle products, certain Kraft products, some other popular food products such as candy and juices, as well as being used in vaccines. The article also says that there is a growing market for fetuses aborted in later trimesters. If this is true, this is absolutely HORRENDOUS and it's disgusting and inexcusable that any American could think that this country is on the right path. We can't test products on animals, but it's perfectly fine to test them on human babies?? I know that you are very knowledgeable about pro-life matters. Do you know if these claims are true? Here is the article in case you want to refer back to it: http://preventdisease.com/news/12/030912_Avoid- Products-Containing-Aborted-Fetal-Cells.shtml

Dear Anon

The information on Pepsi has turned out to be wrong. Please see this article: BOYCOTT ENDS: PEPSICO WILL NOT USE ABORTED FETAL CELLS http://www.cogforlife.org/pepsiboycottnews.htm
