Abortion and vaccines (Part 2)

DNA from aborted babies in vaccines

There are several vaccines that are manufactured using cell lines from aborted babies (Varivax, Pentacel – among others).

MRC-5 is a fetal cell line (lung, fibroblast) derived from a normal male human aborted in 1966 in England (MRC = Medical Research Council, of the United Kingdom/England;

WI-38 is a fetal cell line (lung) from an electively aborted female baby of about
4 months gestation in Sweden. (WI = Wistar Institute of Philadelphia PA);

PER C6 is a cell line begun in 1985, derived from a retinal cell from a baby electively aborted at 18 weeks. (page 91); 
I think PER.C6 stands for Primary Embryonic Retinal Cell 6, though I was not able to 
confirm this. 

One of the primary reasons this writer holds the opinion that vaccine use should be voluntary and not compulsory (for anyone, child or adult) is that there are too many instances in medical care where people have suffered because we charged ahead with an intervention/procedure (based on theory) only to find out later that the theory was not correct and the intervention had unintended (adverse) effects. I think that is true for vaccines – those who are confident in their safety and efficacy should be free to use them, those who have reservations and want further study/information should be free to decline them.

For example, how many women have been harmed by routine episiotomy (which we now know is more likely to cause larger tears than a spontaneous laceration and the use of this procedure should be restricted to emergencies only), how many women have been harmed by the routine use of electronic fetal monitoring during labor? It was implemented in the early 1970's because it was *believed* that it would reduce risk of a baby developing cerebral palsy which *was thought* to be caused by lack of oxygen during labor – and yet further research has shown that the greatest risk factor for CP is prematurity and antepartal infection, not lack of oxygen during labor – and yet the cat is out of the bag, and there will be no putting it back in, as OB providers have a genuine concern (and risk for) lawsuits, and this is perceived as helping shield them from liability – but it is part of what has contributed to the significant rise in cesarean sections – a real source of risk to childbearing women.

The presence of human DNA from aborted children raises at least two issues:
  1. Safety
I think it remains unknown what effect there may be to being exposed to
foreign DNA from vaccines – whether that DNA is human or animal. We
do not yet fully understand how our bodies (immune system and DNA)
interacts with foreign DNA and what consequences this may have for our
short-term and/or long-term health. This is true for both children and adults
who are exposed to vaccine manufactured using human and/or animal

We know that unborn babies cells can and do cross the placenta and 
integrate into maternal tissues, persisting for decades. 

If this happens during pregnancy why would it not also occur with 
remnants of DNA present in vaccines? 

  1. Ethics
Many people would not want to use a product made (even in part) from
tissue derived from a human being whose life was electively terminated
(regardless of the reason). 

Regardless of the number of people who may have benefited from vaccines
derived from aborted people, the ends do not justify the means. 

The people from whom these cell lines were derived did not consent to the 
use of their bodies for this purpose (much less the sacrifice of their life 
regardless of why their lives were ended). 

Many have benefited (and continue to benefit) financially from these cell 
lines - but have their parents been compensated, have they "benefited" 
from ending their unborn child's life (other than not having to give birth 
to and raise a child they did not want to have). While there are laws 
prohibiting the sale/purchase of human parts there are also ENORMOUS 
loop-holes that make such prohibitions an absolute sham. 

Once again, let me re-iterate that the purpose of raising this issue is not to pour 
salt into an open wound for those who are post-abortive ... if you have had an 
abortion and are hurting and want help please reach out to a local pregnancy 
resource center ( - they can help you find counseling 
to obtain peace.
