The Charlotte Lozier Institute, the research arm of the Susan B Anthony List, has been tracking COVID-19 vaccine research and development. One concern regarding the ethical assessment of viral vaccines is the potential use of abortion-derived cell lines in the development, production or testing of a vaccine. In a recent update, available HERE, the researchers verify that a number of vaccine developers are using such cell lines. The Lozier Institute hopes by providing accurate data, recipients can make well-informed decisions regarding any vaccine choices.
WFA president, Julaine Appling, says, “Moderna Virus vaccine is very much in the news right now touting a nearly ninety-five percent effective rate. Lozier institute shows this vaccine did not use abortion-derived cells lines in the development or production but some tests have used such cell lines. Pro-life citizens need to know this information as we move closer and closer to an available vaccine. Ethics really do matter.”
