As you may already know aborted human fetal cells are used to culture active agents in preparation of many vaccines. Here is a table of various vaccines which used fetal cells and with them a list shown of some ethical alternatives that did not use aborted baby products.
Let’s put aside the whole issue of whether you are pro-vax or anti-vax. I want to ask the following question and I would like your feedback in the Comments section please. Let me know which way you would lean on this.
Is it morally equivalent to say that accepting a vaccine based on an aborted fetal cell line is the same as accepting a transplant organ from a murdered person?
I think most believers would argue that the organ legally given by the relatives of a murdered person presents no moral dilemma. But, can you say “There is no strong moral dilemma in using a vaccine, which used fetal cells in its production”?
Are we just normalising this issue where we have come to the point of accepting abortion as a normal way of life, and that there is no breaking of God’s moral law? Many things in our current society are headed down the slippery slope of moral decline. You might argue that they did not kill the babies to use their cells this way. But are you sure, in every case? Who knows the limits of some murderous regimes where abortion is a way of life (and death). Where will it lead to? Now states are enacting laws to murder babies in the womb up to full term. Some even advocate for the right to kill the baby up to 2 years old. Their consciences are ‘seared like a hot iron’ passed feeling.
The Italian vaccine research and advocacy organization Corvelva recently (October 2019) released new data regarding the use of aborted fetal cell lines in vaccines. Complete human genome found in GlaxoSmithKline’s tetravalent measles-mumps-rubella-chickenpox (MMRV) vaccine.
The Corvelva team summarized their findings as follows:
1 – The fetal cell line was found to belong to a male fetus.
2 – The cell line presents itself in such a way that it is likely to be very
old, thus consistent with the declared line of the 1960s.
3 – The fetal human DNA represented in this vaccine is a complete
individual genome, that is, the genomic DNA of all the chromosomes
of an individual is present in the vaccine.
4 – The human genomic DNA contained in this vaccine is clearly,
undoubtedly abnormal, presenting important inconsistencies
with a typical human genome, that is, with that of a healthy
5 – 560 genes known to be associated with forms of cancer were
tested and all underwent major modifications.
6 – There are variations whose consequences are not even known, not
yet appearing in the literature, but which still affect genes involved in
the induction of human cancer.
7 – What is also clearly abnormal is the genome excess showing
changes in the number of copies and structural variants.
This is evidence that runs counter to Creation Ministries International claim that no human DNA remain in vaccines.
