Stop Using Aborted Babies for COVID-19 Vaccine Research!

Fetal cells and tissues derived from aborted babies must not be used to develop vaccines and treatments for COVID-19. American taxpayers should not be forced to foot the bill for any research involving cells derived from aborted babies either.

Unfortunately, many of the leading vaccine candidates for the 2019 novel coronavirus are being developed using cell lines that were originally derived from a number of babies that were aborted in the 1960s and 1970s.

Using cell lines harvested from aborted babies is highly unethical and morally unconscionable.

It encourages pharmaceutical companies to continue developing new drugs, vaccines, and therapeutics with cell lines derived from abortions.

Unfortunately, some of this research is being funded by the U.S. government, including through grants awarded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Now—before it is too late— is the time to say no to COVID-19 research using fetal cell lines derived from aborted babies. We want a clean vaccine for COVID-19!

Fortunately, there are many ethical promising alternatives that can be used for developing vaccines and therapeutics for COVID-19, including, but not limited to:

  • Chicken egg and monkey kidney cells
  • Human placental cells
  • K562 cell line
  • Tobacco plant cells
  • Recombinant DNA.

Some of these alternatives have been used for decades in the development of vaccines and have a proven track record of success. Many potential vaccines and therapeutics developed using ethical alternatives are already showing encouraging results. And some are already slated to begin clinical trials soon.
