Oklahoma state Sen. Ralph Shortey has introduced a bill to the Oklahoma Legislature that has caused quite a stir. S.B. 1418 says it would ban any product for human “consumption” that contains aborted human fetal tissue or where the research or development of any of the ingredients required the use of aborted fetal tissue. Now, currently, there are no aborted fetuses in any food products. But some pundits interpret “consumption” in this bill to mean not just food products, but any product humans “consume,” like drugs, vaccines, treatments or even beauty products.
In the national response to S.B. 1418, the jokes about Soylent Green abound, and those from all political persuasions mocked Shortey as an idiot with nothing better to do than invent problems and waste taxpayer money.

mightymac wrote:what is Soylent Green? (can't go to youtube at work.) in fact, it has been a question for a couple weeks as my husband bought a small item on ebay from some guy in the UK and in his feedback he used the term Soylent Green. neither of us have a clue what that means.
Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, ‘Because you have more turmoil than the nations which surround you and have not walked in My statutes, nor observed My ordinances, nor observed the ordinances of the nations which surround you,’ 8 therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, ‘Behold, I, even I, am against you, and I will execute judgments among you in the sight of the nations. 9 And because of all your abominations, I will do among you what I have not done, and the like of which I will never do again. 10 Therefore, fathers will eat their sons among you, and sons will eat their fathers; for I will execute judgments on you and scatter all your remnant to every wind. 11 So as I live,’ declares the Lord GOD, ‘surely, because you have defiled My sanctuary with all your detestable idols and with all your abominations, therefore I will also withdraw, and My eye will have no pity and I will not spare. 12 One third of you will die by plague or be consumed by famine among you, one third will fall by the sword around you, and one third I will scatter to every wind, and I will unsheathe a sword behind them.
wow, would not have guessed that. Thanks for the clarification. Of course now I'm really creeped-out by that guys feedback. Must be that British humor....
There is also Neocutis, a San Francisco company, which is selling cosmetic and dermatological products that have come from aborted fetal tissue. Neocutis openly admits that its PSP (Processed Skin Cell Proteins) products are derived from the cells of an electively aborted fetus. These PSP products are being marketed to treat “around-the-eye wrinkles and puffiness, to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and provide long-lasting hydration for luminous skin.”

A pro-life leader has won a victory in her efforts to convince soft-drink manufacturer PepsiCo to stop the use of aborted fetal cells in its research for enhancing the flavors of its products. Debi Vinnedge, executive director of Children of God for Life (COGFL), announced that in late April she had received a letter from Paul Boykas, PepsiCo’s vice president for Global Public Policy, confirming that the company will not allow the use of HEK-293 — a cell line derived from human embryonic kidney — in its partnership with Senomyx, the company with which it had inked a four-year, $30 million contract for flavor research.
I'm certainly glad that Pepsi has said they will stop doing this, but I just can't bring myself to tell them "thank you" or ever buy another Pepsi product again as Ms Vinnedge suggests at the end of the article. As I see it, they resisted this for a year, they're only protecting their bottom line, not having a change of heart. They're still doing business with a research firm that researches in this way. I don't think I can ever believe anything Pepsi says again, nor trust any of their products. Am I over-reacting? Too cynical? It just seems easy for them to say whatever they want.

Exit40 wrote:Hi Carl. My position may be partially mistaken. I am under the impression they used the tissue for testing, not placing it in the cola. If they do put it in, I am with you all the way on that.
Mat 15:11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
Jesus was speaking here, right after having a go at some scribes and pharisees, in relation to their hypocrisy.
God bless You Bro

First, are any of these things in our food right now?
Second, are these awful ingredients in anything we might use right now?
This is just awful.
I was talking to a man who works in the meat dept. at Walmart. He told me the make up companies come pick up their spoiled meats that don't sell. He said they put that into cosmetics. I can't imagine the layers of things i would be shocked and offended by in regards to our world of convenience we live in. Who knows what's in all these pretty little packages we throw into our buggy, bring home, unwrap, and consume in one way or another!

CANNIBAL, one who eats human-flesh. (Span.,—W. Indian.) A corrupt form; it should rather be caribal. 'The Caribes I learned to be men-eaters or canibals, and great enemies to the islanders of Trinidad;' Hackluyt, Voyages, vol. iii. p. 576 (R.); a passage imitated in Robinson Crusoe, ed. J. W. Clark, 1866, p. 126. See Shak. Oth. i. 3. 143.
—Span. canibal, a cannibal, savage; a corruption of Caribal, a Carib, the form used by Columbus; see Trench, Study of Words.
B. This word being ill understood, the spelling was changed to canibal to give a sort of sense, from the notion that the cannibals had appetites like a dog; cf. Span. canino, canine, voracious, greedy. As the word canibal was unmeaning in English, a second n was introduced to make the first vowel short, either owing to accent, or from some notion that it ought to be shortened...
