Does Pepsico use fetal remains for research?

  Ugh. How much lower can we go when I have to even think about typing a title like the one above.
In a decision delivered February 28, the Security and Exchange Commission ruled that PepsiCo’s use of aborted fetal remains in their research and development agreement with Senomyx to produce  flavor enhancers falls under “ordinary business operations
“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,” the Senomyx web site says. “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.” 
Vinnedge explained, “What they don’t tell the public is that they are using HEK 293 – human embryonic kidney cells taken from an electively aborted baby to produce those receptors. They could have easily chosen animal, insect, or other morally obtained human cells expressing the G protein for taste receptors.” 
    And this is ORDINARY BUSINESS? 
   Remember the shock when television wouldn't show Elvis Presley from the hips down because it was considered immoral?
  Remember when your parents frowned on sexual activity for teenagers?
  Remember when people were responsible for their behavior and didn't expect the taxpayers to hand them everything free?
  This is the famed "slippery slope" we are on.
  We are truly living in a state of anomie, encouraged by the worst president in the history of the United States, who voted twice for infanticide and whose SEC says that the use of fetal cells for testing purposes for a soft drink is just ordinary business.
