Aborted Babies Are Used In Some Vaccines

Aborted Babies Are Used In Some Vaccines

I wanted to know why any “mainstream” religion would be against vaccines.  Before the birth of my daughter, I researched heavily why someone would have a religious exemption and found out why.  Aborted babies were used in some of the vaccines.  The abortions were elective by the mothers and not because their life was at stake.  No Christian should inject themselves or their children with aborted babies, nor should they financially support a company that does so.  The issue of morality could be very different if there was an accident, child died naturally in utero or the abortion was to save the mother say for an ectopic pregnancy.

If you ask a vaccine manufacturer if they use aborted baby “cells” in the vaccine, they’ll deny because of a technicality of definition.  You see, they’ll call it DNA and(or) protein because the “cell” is no longer intact by the time it is packaged in the vaccine.  You see a “Cell” must have a nucleus surrounded by cytoplasm enclosed in a cell or plasma membrane. If you were to take cells and blend them up then by definition, you have protein and DNA and not a cell.  Regardless of how they change the terms, they used aborted babies in the manufacturing of some of their vaccines and enough of the “baby” remains in the vaccine that they must list it in their package insert.  Additionally, the CDC calls them “cells” in their ingredients list.  To be clear, I am not aware of continued use of aborted babies, only 2 or 3 aborted babies.

At least 3 vaccines contain protein/DNA from aborted babies at least three months old in utero. Although the FDA approved ethical alternatives, those other options are no longer manufactured or available in the US.

Three of the vaccines in the CDC “suggested” schedule for children contain MRC-5 or WI-38 which is aborted baby cells. Here are the 2 lines of aborted baby cells and their descriptions come directly from Coriell a company that sells these cell lines.


(Remarks section) “The MRC-5 cell line was developed in September 1966 from lung tissue taken from a 14 week fetus aborted for psychiatric reason from a 27 year old physically healthy woman. The cell morphology is fibroblast-like. The karyotype is 46,XY; normal diploid male.”


(Remarks section) “The WI-38 cell line was developed in July 1962 from lung tissue taken from a therapeutically aborted fetus of about 3 months gestational age. Cells released by trypsin digestion of the lung tissue were used for the primary culture. The cell morphology is fibroblast-like. The karyotype is 46,XX; normal diploid female.”

Vaccines that were manufactured with the aborted babies and on the CDC’s list of childhood vacccines:

MMR Vaccine (Measles, Mumps, Rubella):

(Description Section from Package Insert) “…strain of live attenuated rubella virus propagated in WI-38 human diploid lung Fibroblasts…”

Varivax (Chicken Pox):

(Description Section from Package Insert) “…introduced into human embryonic lung cell cultures, adapted to and propagated in embryonic guinea pig cell cultures and finally propagated in human diploid cell cultures (WI-38). Further passage of the virus for varicella vaccine was performed at Merck Research Laboratories (MRL) in human diploid cell cultures (MRC-5)Each 0.5 mL dose contains the following:… residual components of MRC-5 cells including DNA and protein…”

VAQTA (Hepatitis A):

(Description Section from Package Insert) “..hepatitis A virus grown in cell culture in human MRC-5 diploid fibroblasts.”
