Posted on 12/31/2008 1:35:57 PM PST by julieee
Washington, DC -- A leading pro-life group that educates about the vaccines that are based on the cells from babies killed in abortions is worried about a new decision from the pharmaceutical giant Merck. The company has decided to stop producing some vaccines that are not made based on fetal cells from abortions.

Gotta get in step with the Zero.
I had no idea they produced some that were. I hope Freepers holding Merck stock take notice.
Say, you should post comments some time too.
Hell is too good for whoever made that decision.
Really. If Zero finds out the number of baby killings isn’t rising he’ll be pissed.
oh my God! I had no idea they did this, and I have been an active pro lifer for many years. My children GOT MMR vaccines (over 15 years ago, not sure if they did it then) but WOW. Maybe that is the link to all the autistic kids! Prayers to end abortion..........NOW!
I have a chart of vaccines which lists which ones are the result of abortions. I’ll try to find the source.
It’s abortion that motivates many families to avoid vaccinations altogether.
Can you trust a drug company that peddles death, even part-time?
I am willing to bet that the “so called” pro-life version was just labeled that way.
Now the Merck announcement that is meant only to publicize their alignment with the Culture of Death.
Please post that list!
We didn’t vaccinate our daughters because I have a nephew who had his development severely zapped after getting the vaccination. The pushy-ness of doctors and nurses for us to comply to their Malthusian agenda to end all disease is very creepy. The say, “All these diseases are making a comeback don’t you know.” Yeah right, that’s because people stopped vaccinating? NO! It’s because of massive immigration, and guess what? You’re abortion slurry has been powerless to stop it.
They’re just experimenting on our kids to build their utopia. If a few of them get asperger here and there it’s worth it; collateral damage in the Humanist war against Humanity.
I sent this article to my nurse-supervisor. I will NOT be administering this product, any other like product. Fortunately, in my dept, it doesn’t come up much. My nurse-supervisor is very pro-life, as are many of the physicians. I work in OB, where we spend time trying to save babies. To inject someone with the remains of a murdered baby is wrong on SO many levels.
IMO, if it were a product that were based on something that was forbidden in the Muslim religion, it would no longer be produced. PC, you know. (Sorry for the unrelated rant. I think that you understand.)
I would like to see a list of Merck products so I can avoid them like the plague (which has no doubt killed fewer babies than Roe v. Wade).
I'm not as appalled as some others by this because these abortions were going to take place anyway and at least this way these lives mean something. Something good came from these lives. I wouldn't feel terrible about my kids having these vaccines, and for all I know they've already had them.
Um the ends do NOT justify the means, no matter how great the ends, or how small the means.
It sounds like a case of the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few to me, and that is what is wrong with the morality of this country today. Vaccinate my kid but at the expense of anothers. Nope. Can’t accept it.
Q: Does MMR vaccine contain fetal or embryonic tissue? If so, what kind?
A:The rubella vaccine virus is cultured in human cell-line cultures, and some of these cell lines originated from aborted fetal tissue, obtained from legal abortions in the 1960’s. No new fetal tissue is needed to produce cell lines to make these vaccines, now or in the future. Fetal tissue is not used to produce vaccines; cell lines generated from a single fetal tissue source are used; vaccine manufacturers obtain human cell lines from FDA-certified cell banks. After processing, very little, if any, of that tissue remains in the vaccine. Human Cell Cultures webpage (exit) and Summary of Vaccine Contents (2/27/03)
The article states that Merck is choosing to focus solely on the vaccine that generates 98% of their revenue. In a time when cost cutting measures are necessary, is this really a surprise? No doubt this has everything to do with reducing complexity (aka cost) and nothing to do with the origin of its cell lines.
Until today I had no idea this was even going on. I read that one of these vaccines common today was derived from cells taken from a baby aborted in 1961, before I was even born. I've probably had that vaccine. Most of us have probably had a vaccine like this. It's creepy that these vaccines were derived from cells from aborted fetuses. It's wrong that these women aborted their children, but I personally do not see it as being immoral to take cells from a fetus that was dead anyway to make a vaccine to help millions of people. You are free to have a differing opinion.
Educate before you vaccinate!
Aborted fetal tissue is but one problem with many (all?) vaccines.
I’m still waiting (years) for our pediatrician to produce a single long term study - double blind or not - comparing autism, cancer rates (etc) between vaccinated and unvaccinated children. There simply aren’t any. Not one.
“Something good came from these lives. “
Autism, cancer, learning disabilities, Asperger’s, Guillian-Barre, seizures...
I will NOT be administering this product, any other like product.
God bless you,
Guess who “sells” them the most “fetal cells” - answer besides your local abortionist, Planned Parenthood!
My oldest child was vaccinated with the two moral monovalent vaccines for Measles and Mumps. My youngest is just getting to the age where she’ll need them so now I have to see if we can get a hold of them and store them until we need them.
Actually, I think there are only two vaccines that are required that don’t have a moral non-fetal-line option — Rubella and Chicken Pox.
Many Muslims are actually pro-life. That might be an interesting approach to take on this, to get Muslims to claim that the vaccines are against their religion and turn Muslims against the MMR and other fetal line vaccines.
In human nature, it is IMPOSSIBLE to stop at one dead aborted fetus. No matter how you try to justify it, abortion of any kind, getting cells from one aborted fetus, will always lead to the world we have today. Abortion mills making millions off of fetal tissue, wanting new embryonic stem cell lines to decimate to “help” other illnesses, even though cord blood and adult stem cells work better. I have serious doubts as to how much truth in this issue there is, as the very people who are telling us what they are doing, are the ones who are using aborted children to inject into living children. I think I would choose to believe that they are telling us ONLY as much as they need to, but not the entire truth about what they are doing.
As always, the slippery slope when aborted fetal material was used for ANYTHING, it will ALWAYS deteriorate to the situation we are now facing. The end will never justify the means, and when one adopts an attitude that the baby was going to be aborted anyway, it will always lead to more abortion, the more “uses” that are found for the tissue will lead to even more. No, I am afraid I cannot agree with your stance. I would have surely like to know whether or not that baby would have preferred life over being made into a vaccine, and I think every child should have the right to answer for themselves.

Abortions were legal in 1961?
I thought they were only made legal in 1973.
I don’t know.
This is why abortion is a multiple billion dollar a year business and why there are no longer pictures of babies in dumpsters behind abortion mills any more.
“In human nature, it is IMPOSSIBLE to stop at one dead aborted fetus.”
Kinda like potato chips?
In a twisted way, I guess......
“Actually, I think there are only two vaccines that are required”
No vaccines are “required”.
Almost every state has legal opt-out. Either medical, religious or philosophical or a combination.
Correct. But given that vaccines in general don’t violate Christianityas far as I can tell and my state allows only religious objections, the only exemptions I can legitimately claim for my children, without lying (which also tends to run counter to Christianity), are the fetal cell line vaccines.
