A Catholic bishop in America renewed a call Saturday for Christians to reject vaccines that are developed using aborted baby body parts. Concerns about unethically produced vaccines are growing again amid talk about the availability of a coronavirus vaccine in the coming months. While some vaccine researchers have been using ethical materials to develop a coronavirus vaccine, others are using cells from electively aborted unborn babies.
Bishop Joseph E. Strickland of the Catholic Diocese of Tyler in Texas, a leading voice on the matter, said Christians must stand together to reject this evil. “I renew my call that we reject any vaccine that is developed using aborted children,” Strickland wrote on Twitter. “Even if it originated decades ago it still means a child’s life was ended before it was born & then their body was used as spare parts. We will never end abortion if we do not END THIS EVIL!”
