We’ve heard many times that the fetal tissue used in the development and testing of vaccines, drugs, and cosmetics is not a big deal morally, because the cell lines originate from a small number of fetuses “ethically and legally aborted” back in the 1960s.
The Very Well Health article below claims that since the 1960s, no additional fetal cells have been harvested to use in the creation of vaccines. And in 2017, the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Life said that because a lack of vaccinations represents a serious health risk, it’s not morally problematic for Catholics to use vaccines developed with the cells “derived solely from two fetuses originally aborted in the 1960s.”

Unfortunately, this claim and the Vatican’s assurances don’t line up with the facts. In January 2018, Dr. Stanley Plotkin, M.D. (the man credited with developing the Rubella vaccine) testified under oath about the use of dozens of aborted, second trimester fetuses in the development of a particular vaccine. He notes the Catholic church says he’ll go to Hell for it and that he will be “glad” to do so.
A nine-minute excerpt from his testimony is at YouTube as “Testimony of Dr Stanley Plotkin Under Oath confirming Use of Murdered Baby Organs in Vaccine Develop.” The full 9 hour deposition is at YouTube as “Stanley Plotkin, Vaccines Deposition, Under Oath, 9 Hour Full Video.” CLICK https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=169178701347460 [17:07] to hear John-Henry Westen comment on clips from the 9 minute version.
IF YOU ONLY HAVE TIME FOR ONE VIDEO, watch this one! https://rumble.com/vd4z19-human-experiments-with-aborted-babies-with-dr.-stacy-interview.html [21:27]. On January 21, 2021, Dr. Stacy Trasancos talked about how scientists are increasingly using aborted babies and their body parts for research. She says their reasoning is that the babies are dead anyway, so we might as well get some benefit from the abundant, inexpensive source of human tissue.
Trasancos mentions the baby hair on mice experiment which The Sun reported on July 28, 2021, was funded by U.S. tax dollars courtesy of Dr. Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The two National Catholic Register links are to articles written by Trasancos that go deeper into this issue.
At this time, the three mRNA vaccines approved for the U.S. and the Regneron-COV treatment were all developed and/or tested using the 1960 cell lines.
