Injecting Aborted Foetus Material
Into Children ?
The Pill – Progesterone only, low dose combination pills.
Ever wonder what abortion clinics do with aborted babies ?
This link will show you a video of a confession of a self-confessed “abortion provider”. This shows you what happens to the quantity of foetus’ that are sold by the bucket load. For the first time, hear an informant reveal how babies (sometimes live) are harvested from abortion clinics for resale.

An informant (in disguise), describes how she (and others at the
company she worked for) gathered foetal tissue at abortion clinics
for later resale to pharmaceutical companies.
American Gulf War Veterans Association.Vaccines linked to abortion this story from the K.C. Star Medical Writer, AlanBavley:Use of fetal tissue prompts challenge of military rules.
(I’ll summarize story below)Sgt. Todd Parish attheWhiteman Air Force Base, Mo., did not mind when his 1-yr old son was vaccinated against chickenpox two months ago.But, soon he discovered that cells derived from aborted fetuses were used to make the vaccine. And that similar cells were used to make the hepatitis-A and rubella shots Parish got several years ago.Parish is a self-described conservative Christian and staunch opponent of abortion. He is shocked, and wants the Army to change its policies. Shouldn’t soldiers be informed how vaccines are made and be allowed to reject them on moral grounds?He now is refusing to allow his 6-yr old daughter to get a chickenpox shot, even though it is required of children attending military-run elementary schools.
Sgt. Parrish has sought out help of the Rutherford Institute, the conservative legal defense organization that handled Paula Jones’ unsuccessful sexual harassment lawsuit. Ron Rissler, the institute’s legal coordinator, said: “We like this one a lot. This deals with the religious beliefs, parental rights. And we’re disturbed about the use of fetal tissue. That’s a violation of the sanctity of human life.”
A spokesperson for Merck & Co., Inc. the manufacturer of vaccines said that they must be grown in fetal cells because that was the primary medium used to develop and test it. Manufacturing it with animal cells could make the vaccine less safe or effective. Donna Cary said: “These types of cell lines are used in so much research, if they were banned it would pretty much shut down medical advances.”
I hope that readers may see the possible consequences in other areas of life, when anti-abortionists take their moral stands to the fullest possible extremes.
Truth-in-labeling, will soon have to differentiate from fetus tissues that are miscarriages, versus abortions. And, I’m sure that “legal” placenta tissues are also used in medical research, most of these recycled from natural births, as well as abortions.
|PROVE IT! The fact that the Chickenpox, Hepatitis-A and MMR vaccines were developed using aborted fetal cell lines, MRC-5 and WI-38 has never been hidden from the public. The problem is that when parents go to their family doctors for vaccinations, who asks to see the product insert? Most parents want to know the risks and possible side effects. Like their doctors, parents are mostly concerned with the health of their children. And doctors, who have been administering the vaccines for years have never checked into the ingredients, although it has always been right at their fingertips. And what would happen if they did? They would read that the vaccine contains “MRC-5”, “WI-38” (or both) “human diploid cell lines”.Below are the opening paragraphs of the Manufacturer’s Package Inserts for Hepatitis-A (Merck & Glaxo Smithkline) MMR and Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccines.Tel: 1-800-672-6372VAQTA [Hepatitis A Vaccine, Inactivated] is an inactivated whole virus vaccine derived from hepatitis A virus (HAV) grown in cell culture in human MRC-5 diploid fibroblasts.

1-800-633-8900 ext. 5231DESCRIPTION PRESCRIBING INFORMATION (PACKAGE INSERT) Hepatitis A Vaccine, Inactivated Havrix
Havrix (Hepatitis A Vaccine, Inactivated) is a noninfectious hepatitis A vaccine developed and manufactured by SmithKline Beecham Biologicals. (The virus (strain HM175) is propagated in MRC5 human diploid cells.) After removal of the cell culture medium, the cells are lysed to form a suspension. This suspension is purified through ultrafiltration and gel permeation chromatography procedures. Treatment of this lysate with formalin ensures viral inactivation.
Havrix contains a sterile suspension of inactivated virus; viral antigen activity is referenced to a standard using an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and is therefore expressed in terms of ELISA Units (EL.U.).
Havrix is supplied as a sterile suspension for intramuscular administration. The vaccine is ready for use without reconstitution; it must be shaken before administration to assure a uniform suspension. After shaking, the vaccine is a homogeneous white turbid suspension. Each 1 mL adult dose of vaccine consists of not less than 1440 EL.U. of viral antigen, adsorbed on 0.5 mg of aluminum, as aluminum hydroxide. There are two pediatric dose formulations, each with its own dosing schedule (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).
The formulations are: not less than 360 EL.U. of viral antigen/0.5 mL; not less than 720 EL.U. of viral antigen/0.5 mL. Each dose is adsorbed onto 0.25 mg of aluminum, as aluminum hydroxide.
The vaccine preparations also contain 0.5% (w/v) of 2-phenoxyethanol as a preservative. Other excipients are: amino acid supplement (0.3% w/v) in a phosphate-buffered saline solution and polysorbate 20 (0.05 mg/mL). Residual MRC5 cellular proteins (not more than 5 mcg/adult dose) and traces of formalin (not more than 0.1 mg/mL) are present.
M-M-R II (MEASLES, MUMPS, and RUBELLA VIRUS VACCINE LIVE)
M-M-R II (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella Virus Vaccine Live) is a live virus vaccine for vaccination against measles (rubeola), mumps and rubella (German measles). M-M-R II is a sterile lyophilized preparation of (1) ATTENUVAX’ (Measles Virus Vaccine Live), a more attenuated line of measles virus, derived from Enders’ attenuated Edmonston strain and propagated in chick embryo cell culture; (2) MUMPSVAX* (Mumps Virus Vaccine Live), the Jerl Lynn (B level) strain of mumps virus propagated in chick embryo cell culture; and (3) MERUVAX’ll (Rubella Virus Vaccine Live), the Wistar RA 27/3 strain of live attenuated rubella virus propagated in WI-38 human diploid lung fibroblasts.
The growth medium for measles and mumps is Medium 199 (a buffered salt solution containing vitamins and amino acids and supplemented with fetal bovine serum) containing SPGA (sucrose, phosphate, glutamate, and human albumin) as stabilizer and neomycin.
The growth medium for rubella is Minimum Essential Medium (MEM) [a buffered salt solution containing vitamins and amino acids and supplemented with fetal bovine serum] containing human serum albumin and neornycin. Sorbitol and hydrolyzed gelatin stabilizer are added to the individual virus harvests.
The cells, virus pools, fetal bovine serum, and human albumin are all screened for the absence of adventitious agents. Human albumin is processed using the Cohn cold ethanol fractionation procedure.
The reconstituted vaccine is for subcutaneous administration. Each 0.5 mL dose contains not less than 1,000 TCID(tissue culture infectious doses) of measles virus; 20,000 TCID of mumps virus; and 1,000 TCID of rubella virus. Each dose of the vaccine is calculated to contain sorbitol (14.5 mg), sodium phosphate, sucrose (1.9 mg), sodium chloride, hydrolyzed gelatin (14.5 mg), human albumin (0.3 mg), fetal bovine serum (
[Varicella Virus Vaccine Live (Oka/Merck)]
VARIVAX [Varicella Virus Vaccine Live (Oka/Merck)] is a preparation of the Oka/Merck strain of live, attenuated varicella virus. The virus was initially obtained from a child with natural varicella, then 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) that were free of adventitious agents. This live, attenuated varicella vaccine is a lyophilized preparation containing sucrose, phosphate, glutamate, and processed gelatin as stabilizers.
VARIVAX, when reconstituted as directed, is a sterile preparation for subcutaneous administration. Each 0.5 mL dose contains the following: a minimum of 1350 PFU (plaque forming units) of Oka/Merck varicella virus when reconstituted and stored at room temperature for 30 minutes, approximately 25 mg of sucrose, 12.5 mg hydrolyzed gelatin, 3.2 mg sodium chloride, 0.5 mg monosodium L-glutamate, 0.45 mg of sodium phosphate dibasic, 0.08 mg of potassium phosphate monobasic, 0.08 mg of potassium chloride; residual components of MRC-5 cells including DNA and protein; and trace quantities of sodium phosphate monobasic, EDTA, neomycin, and fetal bovine serum. The product contains no preservative. But that statement alone does not mean “aborted fetal tissue”. Diploid cells are defined as “having twice the number of chromosomes normally occurring in a mature germ cell”. Deceptive footwork on the part of the pharmaceutical companies; legal, without disclosing what would have surely led to a public outcry and a demand for immediate change.
Next, most doctors have at their disposal a book called a PDR (Physician’s Desk Reference). The same information, listing the WI-38 and MRC-5 cell lines can be found there as well.
But what happens when the information still does not prove that MRC-5 or WI-38 are aborted fetal cell lines? There are several references to document this as well a few of which are listed below. But finding the resource material yourself can be time consuming and cumbersome. Taken from the Coriell Cell Repository, a company that actually sells fetal (and other) tissue cell lines, is a complete scientific description of the cell lines and the information on the original abortions:

|Still not convinced? Read one of the letters Merck has written
Still Need More Proof That Aborted Fetal Cell Lines Are Used in These Vaccines?Though the First Plumbline Apologeticsdose not accept the Roman Catholic Church teachings or other wise this is a letter that the Children of God for Life a Catholic Charity against Abortion reported. http://www.cogforlife.org/ebolaAlert.htm(Clearwater Fl) Children of God for Life announced the discovery of plans byCrucell, N.V. and the Vaccine Research Center of the National Institutes of Health’s Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to jointly develop a new vaccine against ebola.The vaccine will be manufactured using Crucell’s PERC6 cell line, which is derived from the retinal tissue of an 18 week gestation fetus, aborted because, according to Dr. Van Der Eb at a recent hearing with the FDA, “The women wanted to get rid of the fetus. …The father was not known and that was, in fact, the reason why the abortion was requested.”In the FDA report found at http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/ac/01/transcripts/
3750t1_01.pdf Dr. Van Der Eb goes on to say that, “PER C6 was made just for the pharmaceutical manufacturing of adenovirus vectors.” He adds, “I realize that this sounds a bit commercial, but PER C6 were made for that particular purpose.”Children of God for Life has fought this issue before. Last fall when the Federal Government awarded a contract to Acambis for the production of a new smallpox vaccine using the aborted fetal cell line MRC-5, a massive public protest quickly mounted. Thousands of letters poured into the offices of the CDC, FDA, HHS and the pharmaceutical companies involved in the bid process, demanding alternatives. Thirty days later, a second contract was awarded to Acambis Baxter for 155 million more doses – but this time, they will use Vero cells, not MRC-5.
“When are the pharmaceutical companies and our government going to wake up and realize this is not the direction our country needs to take in developing important medical treatments and vaccines?”, Children of God for Life’s Executive Director Debi Vinnedge stated. “We already have an existing campaign and petition against vaccines utilizing aborted fetal tissue – MMR, Chickenpox and Hepatitis-A and so many parents are refusing to use these vaccines as they learn the truth about their source. They have a right to protect the health and safety of their families without violating their religious beliefs or contributing to the culture of death in this country.”
The non-profit, pro-life organization has already received over 450,000 signatures in their Campaign for Ethical Vaccines. Vinnedge admits the current situation is frightening because although many people would consider the dangers of something like chickenpox to be nominal, smallpox and ebola are well known to be deadly.
“When an on-line poll was conducted by WorldNet Daily News on whether people would use a smallpox vaccine derived from aborted fetal tissue, 56% of the people said they would refuse it, 34% said it would not deter them and another 10% were undecided. The public has a right to expect our government to take the necessary measures to ensure that the entire population can be protected against deadly, infectious disease – not just those who see nothing wrong with profiting from abortion.”
The revelation of the PER C6 cell line which was developed in the Netherlands also turned up a number of new alliances formed with American pharmaceuticals and Crucell. Under Phase 2 Clinical Trials is a new HIV vaccine being developed by Merck which will also use the PER C6 cell line.
“What do these people at Merck think?” Vinnedge wants to know. “Do they think that people with HIV are somehow less sensitive to abortion than the general public? Clearly they simply do not care about anyone or anything other than their bottom line! We are ready to support any company who promises to do it better – and we can guarantee them a solid return on their investment!”
Vinnedge is asking the public to respond once again by writing formal letters of protest to Tommy Thompson at the Department of Health and Human Services as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Merck. Any email correspondence to these offices should be carbon copied to email@example.com as the organization will track the public response. Addresses are as follows:

27 babies deliberately aborted in controlled setting in order to extract live virus
NORTH BRANCH, NJ, May 3, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Human Life International and Children of God for Life joined forces as a Merck Shareholder Meeting last month winning enough votes to have their pro-life resolution considered.
“As stockholders in Merck we are particularly distressed at the violation of human rights that occurred in the early 1960s in the development of two cell lines, the RA 27/3 and the WI-38, which were used to create the MMR vaccine. We are even more distressed that this same pattern of human rights violations continues to take place with the PER-C6 cell line that Merck has taken license for in developing a new AIDS vaccine”, said HLI’s Fr. Euteneuer in his opening statements at the annual Merck Shareholder meeting on April 27th in North Branch, NJ.
He continued a relentless pounding of Merck’s unethical behavior by admonishing the board, “The RA 27/3 obtained its tissue from the last in a line of 27 babies who were deliberately aborted in a controlled setting in order to extract the live virus. These cell lines were thus created at the cost of dozens of innocent human lives with the full knowledge of Merck researchers.”
The room fell silent as Fr. Euteneuer concluded, “We ask Merck for two things: full disclosure about the nature of Merck’s involvement in this gruesome business, and the withdrawal of the unethical vaccine from the market as soon as possible.”
Debbie Vinnedge of Children of God for Life who surprised the fidgeting board members by stating, “On behalf of over half a million parents and medical professionals nationwide who have joined our Campaign for Ethical Vaccines, I would like to begin by thanking you Mr. Gilmartin and the members of the Board for bringing your ethically produced single dose measles and mumps vaccines back to the market last summer.”
While the chairman of the meeting ignored the pro-lifers several shareholders told the meeting they were shocked by the revelations and demanded action. At the end of the meeting the pro-lifers had more than the necessary votes to continue to pursue the pro-life resolution.
Despite the victory, perhaps one of the most troubling aspects about the shareholder meeting came from the company’s own admission that they had partnered with the Bill Gates Foundation, one of the larger supporters of Planned Parenthood worldwide, in order to fight the HIV epidemic in Africa. Merck intends to use the aborted fetal cell line PER C6 to develop its new HIV vaccine.

…that two recommended childhood vaccinations are made using aborted babies?by Dr. Thomas J. Eads, M.D.The following vaccination schedule is the current recommendation as of July 2004.What you may not know is that the MMR [Measles, Mumps, Rubella] Vaccine and the Varicella [chickenpox] vaccines are both propagated [grown] on tissue derived from aborted babies. The cells are called “human diploid cells” in the product description [pdf of MMR product description | pdf of Varicella product description]
The following, less commonly used vaccines also are made using aborted babies:
Biavax [Rubella and Mumps]–Merck and Co.
What about Polio vaccines?
Much is written on the internet about Aventis-Pasteur vaccines containing the MRC-5 fetal line. The names given for the Aventis vaccines are inaccurate on most websites. If you are interested, visit Aventis-Pasteur here to read about their polio vaccines. It is not clear whether or not aborted babies are used or not for their polio vaccines. But the most common form of the polio vaccine today is GlaxoSmithKline’s Pediarix which contains DTap, Hep B, and IPV. This product does NOT use aborted babies for its manufacture and thus is safe from an ethical standpoint. I accessed the information about Pediarix at www.pdr.net, but didn’t link to it here because a password is needed.
What should I do if I want to immunize my children,
Merck & Co. has a measles only vaccine available that does not use aborted babies. The name is AttenuVax and can be ordered by your physician from Merck in a pack of 10 single use vials by calling 1-800-637-2579. The catalogue number for the AttenuVax is 458900. The AttenuVax would be administered at the normal times recommended for the MMR.
Merck & Co. also produces a mumps vaccine that does not use aborted babies. The name is MumpsVax and can be ordered by your physician from Merck in a pack of 10 single use vials by calling 1-800-637-2579. The catalogue number is 458400. There is an error at several websites that state that this product is made with aborted babies. This is not true and the product information for AttenuVax and MumpsVax can be downloaded here: Measles/Mumps Vaccine Product information: word | pdf
There is no currently available vaccine against rubella that is not propagated on human diploid cells [aborted babies].
Rubella is a mild childhood disease that is primarily vaccinated for due to the Congenital Rubella Syndrome [CRS]. CRS causes birth defects in babies of mothers who become infected during their first trimester. Approximately 25% of infected mothers will have a baby with some congenital abnormality.
“For countries wishing to prevent the occurrence of congenital rubella infection including CRS, two approaches are recommended:
1) prevention of CRS only, through immunization of adolescent girls and/or women of childbearing age; or
2) elimination of rubella as well as CRS through universal vaccination of infants, surveillance and assuring immunity in women of childbearing age.”
This means that prevention of CRS can be done with a single vaccination done at least one month prior to conception.
Male children could permanently forego the vaccination according to the first strategy outlined by the WHO. Female children could wait until they are of childbearing age. At that time, a Rubella IgG blood antibody level could be drawn because she may have contracted a sub-clinical/mild case of rubella in childhood and have antibodies and never need the vaccination. Hopefully by that time there will be a commercially available rubella vaccine that does not use human fetal tissue. At the time of this writing, the author has learned that the rubella vaccine available in China does use human fetal tissue, and several rubella vaccines are available in Japan and I am unaware of the cell medium used for these vaccines. We will keep you up to date.
There is no currently available chickenpox vaccine that does not use human diploid cells [aborted babies] to propagate the cells. The varicella vaccine is recommended by the CDC, but due to origin of the vaccine, there is a need for a varicella vaccine that is not derived from aborted babies.
What you can do:
We recommend that you let your doctor know that you don’t want vaccines made from aborted babies. Call Merck & Co. [1-800-MERCK-Rx] and tell them that you would like a varicella and rubella vaccine that isn’t propagated on human diploid cells or MRC-5 and WI-38. Call and write your Senators and Representative to discuss this issue with them. Finally, live by your convictions. Of what benefit are convictions if one is not willing to live by them? It is possible to properly protect your children from serious childhood illnesses and at the same time not promote abortion by using products made from aborted babies.
