PART 2: The use of aborted fetal cells in vaccines today

In Part 1 of this series, we looked at the history of aborted fetal cells in the production of vaccines.

Are aborted babies still used in the manufacture of vaccines today? 

Yes, unfortunately, the trend has not been abated despite ethical alternatives, that have been around since the beginning.

It should also be noted that due to the use vaccines derived from fetal cell lines, human DNA debris is found in almost all vaccines of this nature and other pharmaceuticals.

Both Mrs. Vinnedge, founder and executive director of Children of God for Life and Theresa Deisher, who holds a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Physiology from Stanford University agree that 

“we now have human DNA in our vaccines and our drugs.”

But there is good news. Dr. Deisher and many other researchers are working to produce ethical vaccines.

And on August 31st, Trudeau announced that Canada has agreed to buy more than 100 million COVID-19 vaccines from Novavax Inc.and Johnson & Johnson.

According to Mrs. Vinnedge, Novavax’s vaccine is ethically produced, Johnson & Johnson’s is not. 

How does this affect pro-lifers and other people of conscience? Father Tad Pacholczyk, director of education at the National Catholic Bioethics Center in Philadelphia directs Catholics and others to Dignitas Personae (The Dignity of the Person). 

It states, “Within this general picture there exist differing degrees of responsibility. Grave reasons may be morally proportionate to justify the use of such “biological material”. 

However, grave reasons for using unethical vaccines must not result in creating and perpetuating a demand for them. 

Pro-lifers and people of conscience are duty bound to protest their use and demand that ethical vaccines be produced.

LifeCanada has a petition that can be signed which asks government to produce ethical vaccines for COVID-19 and keep exceptions in place that protect our Charter rights.
