The soft drink giant PepsiCo. says that it will no longer be using fetal cells to develop flavor enhancers.
The company recently responded to a petition from a pro-life group, explaining that the Pepsi has had internal discussions about the “highly controversial” matter, and has decided that it will not use HEK-293 (human embyonic kidney cells) or “any other tissues of cell lines derived from human embryos or fetuses for research.”
Pro-life groups have now lifted their boycott against the soft drink company and are encouraging citizens to thank Pepsi for its recent decision.
