Good News -- Pepsi Stops Exploiting Fetal Remains
Here's more on the story.
And, in the same way that we urged you to boycott Pepsi products in the past and to let them know of your displeasure at their immoral behavior (Pepsi No More and SEC Defends Pepsi's Use of Fetal Cell Research as "Ordinary Business,"), a follow up note thanking PepsiCo for this reversal is in order.
Here's what I wrote and sent (via this form)
Well, it took a lot longer than it should have for your company to realize what Mr. Boykas, has now admitted; namely, that PepsiCo has "recognized that the use of aborted babies was highly sensitive and controversial, and not in the best interests of PepsiCo."
I was one of the many who wrote you with my complaints, who refused Pepsi products, and who stopped frequenting restaurants that served Pepsi products (and, yes, I let them know why). Therefore, I wanted to write and let you know how pleased and grateful I am with your decision.
