- The Pepsi Company, which is set to release the new
product Pepsi Next in the coming weeks, is facing a more
robust boycott as pro-life activists protest the company
use of cells derived from an aborted fetus in
flavor-enhancing research. But Pepsi has succeeded, with
help from the Obama Administration, in keeping its
controversial operations from consideration by its
In a decision delivered
Feb 28th, President Obama’s Security and Exchange
Commission (SEC) ruled that PepsiCo’s use of cells
derived from aborted fetal remains in their research and
development agreement with Senomyx to produce flavor
enhancers falls under “ordinary business operations.”
LARGO, Florida, May 26,
– Scores of prolife groups are calling for a public
boycott of food giant, PepsiCo, due to its partnership
with Senomyx, a biotech company that uses aborted fetal
cells in the research and development of artificial
Senomyx’s partnership with major food corporations, most
notably PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, and Nestlé.
Pro-life watchdog group,
Children of God for Life (CGL), is now joined by major
pro-life organizations calling upon the public to target
PepsiCo in a boycott.
Pepsi is funding the
research and development, and paying royalties to
Senomyx, which uses HEK-293 (human embryonic kidney
cells) to produce flavor enhancers for Pepsi beverages.

has now ceased funding Planned Parenthood according to Life
DC (LifeNews.com) --
October is the month for breast cancer awareness,
but it's difficult for pro-life advocates to lend
their support to one of the primary organizations
involved in the fight against breast cancer because
it has provided contributions to the Planned
parenthood abortion business.
The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation has long
denied that abortion plays any role in elevating the
risk for women of contracting the deadly disease.
That's despite a wealth of research over decades
showing an average increased risk of about 40
percent for women having abortions compared to those
who carry their pregnancy to term.
But the contributions Komen affiliates make to
Planned Parenthood, which does more than 25 percent
of all abortions in the United States and
aggressively promotes abortion abroad, provide
another source of frustration for pro-life people
who otherwise would support the group.
In a new interview with the Daily Caller, Komen
spokesman John Hammarley provided the latest figures
showing the link between the two groups.
He confirmed 20 of Komen’s 122 affiliates have made
donations to Planned Parenthood and, last year,
those contributions totaled $7.5 million -- much
higher than the $731,000 Komen's figures on its web
showed earlier this year.

"As a direct result of the commitment, action and prayers of
pro-family people, at least 256 corporations have stopped
funding Planned Parenthood," said Kenneth C. Garvey, LDI's
Director of Communications. It is estimated that the boycott has
cost Planned Parenthood more than $40 million since the
Corporate Funding Project (CFP) began nearly 18 years ago.
"This should serve as a testament to those who thought it
impossible to change corporate philanthropic behavior," he

A pro-family group has completed a television monitoring project
that focused on recording ads and sponsors on programs reportedly
named by a major homosexual support group as giving positive
portrayals of that lifestyle. Ford, the automaker that's already a
target of conservative and pro-family groups, has emerged as the top
sponsor of those pro-homosexual programs.
American Family Association (AFA), which started the
against Ford last spring because of its support of
homosexual media and organizations through advertising and financial
donations, says it has concluded a 12-week network TV monitoring
project that again points to Ford's support of the homosexual
agenda. AFA spokesman Randy Sharp says his group did not set out to
target the automaker this time.

Wal-Mart Drops Gay Sex How-To Manual for Teens
after LifeSiteNews.com Expose
By John-Henry Westen
BENTONVILLE, AR, November
15, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A graphic sex-ed manual promoting lesbianism to
teenage girls has been dropped by Wal-Mart only days after LifeSiteNews.com
published a story exposing Wal-Mart's sale of the controversial book.
Produced by St. Stephens' Community House in Toronto,
the book is titled "The Little Black Book for Girlz: A Book on Healthy
Sexuality". Parents were outraged when they learned of the book which gives
detailed instruction for teens to engage in lesbian sex acts.

Teens with Gay Porn How-To Manual
By Gudrun Schultz
BENTONVILLE, AR, November 15,
2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A graphic sex-ed manual promoting
lesbianism to teenage girls is now offered for sale by Wal-Mart in
the United States. Called "irresponsible and obscene" and by the
Institute for Canadian Values, the material contains explicit
directions for engaging in oral/anal sexual acts. The book
encourages same-sex experimentation, telling girls that only 10
percent of the population is actually heterosexual, while 80 percent
is "mixed" or bi-sexual.
Produced by St. Stephens'
Community House in Toronto, the book titled "The Little Black Book
for Girlz: A Book on Healthy Sexuality" caused a storm of
controversy earlier this fall when parents and pro-family groups
first became aware of the books' content after it was published in
The manual was further
condemned for using obscene and derogatory language. Examples
include a section entitled "My First Time F***ing a Girl" and the
statement "If you need someone to represent God The Holiness, then
for me, it's a fat black dyke."

Wal-Mart's 'Gay' Partnership Risks
By Randy Hall
CNSNews.com Staff Writer/Editor
August 29, 2006
(CNSNews.com) - After months of criticism from union-backed groups over
its employee pay and health care practices, Wal-Mart now faces a potential
"rollback" of support from conservatives because of the retail giant's
partnership with a homosexual business coalition.
"I don't think this is something that will sell on Main Street America, where
most Wal-Mart stores are located," said Tony Perkins, president of the
conservative Family Research Council (FRC). "I don't think cheap prices on goods
from China will be enough to stop a rollback in their customer base if they
choose to go down this aisle."
Joining the FRC in criticizing Wal-Mart's new alliance with the National Gay and
Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) is Americans for Truth, which describes
itself as "the only national organization devoted exclusively to exposing and
countering the homosexual activist agenda."
"Wal-Mart has always been a favorite of God-fearing Middle American customers
who hold traditional family values," said Peter LaBarbera, the group's founder
and president. "I'm very surprised that Wal-Mart would now bite the hand that
feeds it and thumb its nose at those very customers.
"It seems to me that Wal-Mart should reconsider its unsavory alliance with these
extremist homosexual activists in today's heated and polarizing culture war,"
However, Bob McAdam, vice president of corporate affairs with Wal-Mart, told
Cybercast News Service that the world's largest retail company joined the
NGLCC "just like we have joined a number of other groups representing all parts
of the spectrum of our customers" - including women's organizations and minority
The conflict began on Aug. 21, when the NGLCC issued a
news release announcing "a partnership with Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., as part
of the company's ongoing commitment to advancing diversity among all of its
associate, supplier and customer bases."
As part of that agreement, Wal-Mart will pay $25,000 to NGLCC - "the largest
LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender] business development and economic
advocacy organization in the world" - and has agreed to sponsor two of NGLCC's
"We are honored to have Wal-Mart's support of the NGLCC," said the group's
co-founder and president, Justin Nelson. "Our partnership will not only provide
more opportunities for the Chamber, but the business community as a whole."
When asked by reporters why Wal-Mart had not issued a statement on the new
partnership, Nelson said that it's "normal procedure" for the NGLCC to handle
Since then, conservative organizations have become increasingly vocal in their
criticism of the new partnership.
Robert Knight, director of the Culture and Family Institute at Concerned Women
for America, said that by joining forces with the NGLCC, Wal-Mart is "validating
the idea that homosexual activists have the right to shake down corporations out
of fear of being called bigots."
Perkins called the alliance "an odd new domestic partnership." He's asking FRC's
supporters to download a
the group's website that asks why the retail chain is supporting homosexual
activism and place a copy of it at the customer service desk of the nearest
As Cybercast News Service
previously reported, the retail giant has been no stranger to controversy
over the past year when union-sponsored groups such as WakeUpWal-Mart.com and
Wal-Mart Watch have charged the corporation with needing to meet
"higher expectations" and being
unsafe for shoppers.
McAdam said he expects the popularity of the company - which has about 3,900
outlets in the United States alone - will trump any criticism from either side
of the political aisle, just as when Wal-Mart
added homosexuals to its non-discrimination policy two years ago.
"I think our attraction to Americans in general speaks for itself, and that's
why comments from either side of the political spectrum or whatever
philosophical debate are less important than the daily approval we see from our
customers," McAdam said.
"Wal-Mart continues to serve the vast majority of Americans regardless of their
political persuasion or their personal beliefs," McAdam noted. "Last year, about
85 percent of Americans bought something at Wal-Mart. We have more than 138
million customers a week at Wal-Mart.
"With numbers of that size, we're dealing with just about everybody, and to that
extent, we want to be as welcoming as we can to every part of the spectrum, and
we will continue to be broad in our outreach," he added. "We welcome people of
all persuasions and all philosophies."
Not all homosexual activists are pleased with the new arrangement, though.
"Our community is a smart community, and we can see a shameless marketing
opportunity when it comes," Jeremy Bishop, program director of the "Pride at
Work" subsidiary of the AFL-CIO, told Cox Newspapers.
"For us, it's a matter of social and economic justice," Bishop added, "and
Wal-Mart has a long record of not treating its employees - gay or straight -
with equity and dignity."
Christian group pulls Wells Fargo accounts
Focus on the Family objects to donation to gay rights group
- Wyatt Buchanan, Chronicle
Tuesday, December 6, 2005
From Phil Bronstein's SF Chronicle:
"We absolutely made a $50,000 grant to
GLAAD, and we're absolutely proud of our support for the gay,
lesbian, bisexual and transgender community," said Chris Hammond,
spokesman for the banking giant, which gives about $2 million a year to
gay and lesbian organizations.
The conservative Christian group Focus on the Family
has closed all its Wells Fargo accounts because the San Francisco bank
contributed to a gay rights group that promised to use the funds to
"fight ... the anti-gay industry."
A Focus on the Family official would not disclose how
much money the organization kept with Wells Fargo, its primary bank, but
said the nonprofit group's income was $146 million last year.
"We don't expect corporate America to do our bidding
on the issues, but when they use the proceeds from our business and give
them to others who clobber us over the head, we say enough is enough,"
said Tom Minnery, who oversees public policy for the organization.
Focus on the Family's move follows a recent spate of
conservative boycotts and other actions against large companies that
support gay and lesbian causes, including Walgreens drugstores and Kraft
Foods Inc., both of which contributed to the Gay Games.

Starbucks: A habit easily broken
By Meghan Kleppinger,
assistant to the national field director at
Concerned Women for America.
Excepts posted with author's permission:
a report came out earlier this year showing that none of Starbucks' charitable
contributions went to conservative causes, I didn't blink -- I bought a latte.
When I walked by a liquor store in Northeast D.C. with a big advertisement for
Starbucks liquor, I kept walking, stopped in at Starbucks and bought a latte!
When I was at work a couple weeks ago, reading an e-alert from our California
organization (yes, latte in hand), I finally had a wake-up call.
The alert described the annual "gay"
pride events which are scheduled in San Diego each year:
San Diego's annual
"Pride" events include dangerous "circuit" parties, a parade with sexual
content and sponsors along the route, including one advertising anal
lubricants, a festival with sexually oriented venues.
" Less than 30 minutes of
research revealed the following:
- Starbucks is listed on the Planned
Parenthood website under this introduction:
companies all generously match employee donations to Planned Parenthood
Federation of America. If your employer is on this list, then you can
make your gift go as much as twice as far.
Seattle, Wash., held "Gay
Pride" events last month where, according to the newspaper, Seattle Post
About 75 Starbucks employees
will march in the parade and will wear T-shirts in rainbow colors with
the word "PRIDE" on the front ... A van from the coffee company will
follow them. On Capitol Hill tomorrow, Starbucks employees at the
company's three stores there will pass out samples of Mint Mocha Chip
The marketing director for
Starbucks in Washington explained: "We're committed to supporting things
that matter to our employees and our customers."
Several conservatives are
upset already by Starbucks' fairly new "The way I see it campaign," which
prints quotes from actors, artists, etc., on the outside of their paper
cups. By visiting their website and reading some of the quotes, it's easy to
see why there has been this big brouhaha – nearly all of them are liberal
So what do I do now?
" I overestimated, but discovered that
if I drink five grande lattes a week for a year, the total number of lattes
would equal 260, coming to a total cost of $1,040. So, in my four post-college
years, I could have contributed as much as $4,160 to a company that supports the
volunteer work of child abusers, "Pride" events, abortionists, and do I really
need to go on? "
"Folks," what you do is up to you, but as for me
and my habit, I will no longer support Starbucks.

"Starbucks Funds and Promotes
Homosexual Activism 8/10/2005 Click to enlarge The financial and political
support of the homosexual agenda by Starbucks, the nation’s leading coffee bar
chain, has some “frothing.” The company crossed the line for one customer when
it funded “Pride” events in San Diego, California that included activities for
children and known sex offenders on its volunteer staff. The coffee company
crossed the line for yet another customer when it placed a quote promoting
homosexual activity on the back side of her coffee cup."
