Can this be true? cells harvested from aborted human beings used to whip up flavor enhancers?

I can find very little information on this subject on any site whose essential brief is anything other than ending abortion, no news sources at all (not to say that invalidates it, but i would like to see something from a disinterested news source.)

The claim is that fetal tissue from intentionally aborted infants, one in particular, from a Dutch girl aborted in the early 1970s, is used in industrial processes by a company called Senomyx for the specific purpose of creating "chemicals that will make food taste better," and Senomyx sells what? a technology? a substance? to food and cosmetic companies, as well as to pharmaceutical companies.

This list was complied by an anti-abortion organization:
PEPSICO [subsequently removed from list]

- All coffee creamers
- Maggi Brand instant soups, bouillon cubes, ketchups, sauces, seasoning, instant noodles

KRAFT PRODUCTS [subsequently removed from list]

CADBURY ADAMS CANDIES [subsequently removed from list]

This company produces anti wrinkle creams that
contain cells from a 14 week gestation aborted male
baby. Following is the list of the creams, but we
recommend a full boycott of all Neocutis Products.

- Bio-Gel Prevedem Journee
- Bio-Serum Lumiere
- Bio Restorative Skin Cream
According to Snopes the story is essentially true, not that any of these companies use the actual cells of aborted infants.

Is that a distinction without a difference? Is it like equipping our police of military with weapons, or perhaps  rather with protection from the weapons of others, which were tested on human beings without their consent, with fatal results.

Would you want to be wearing body armor developed in that manner?
It's people!


Soylent, Shmoylent, why let it go to waste?
