Covid-19 Vaccine & HEK293

Testing & Production are Ethically Equal?

Children of God for Life have released an excellent article making the case that testing and quality control — when used systematically as a fundamental component of the mass production of vaccines — is ethically comparable to growing the vaccine in fetal cell lines.

To summarize, if the in vitro lab test is part of the production manufacturing protocol, and it almost certainly is, then the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are no different ethically than the AstraZeneca vaccine or any other vaccine grown in fetal cell lines. In both cases, the production of the vaccine depends on the ongoing use of the illicit fetal cell line. To accept the vaccine means accepting the continued use of cells originating from an aborted child.

Please note: we now know that Moderna does not use fetal cells in ongoing production lot testing.
