The following is from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of the New Jersey Right to Life. Please use the links in Marie’s message for more information and please contact the Trump administration to make sure any vaccine approved for COVID-19 does not use the cells of aborted babies.
Many pharmaceuticals are presently working to develop a vaccine for COVID-19. Unfortunately, some are experimenting on the efficacy of using cell lines from aborted babies.
Please read this informative article by Dr. David Prentice and Dr. Tara Sander Lee which provides a host of ethical alternatives that are available now. There are also many more in development thanks to NIH directing additional funding to new areas of research. For coronavirus in particular, there are over 60 potential treatments under investigation.

We are proud to stand with the Catholic Church and other pro-life and faith leaders to promote good, ethical health care that does not involve the use of aborted babies.
