Hepatitis Vaccine uses aborted children's lungs????
World Net Daily ^ | 1/13/08 | not named

A U.S. Coast Guard officer and devout Catholic has filed suit to prevent being forced to receive a vaccination derived from the lung of an aborted child after a higher ranking officer disputed his understanding of Church theology.

The Alliance Defense Fund filed a complaint last week in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of Lt. Cmdr. Joseph Healy, charging the government with using its own arbitrary judgment of what constitutes Catholic theology while permitting religious exemptions to others, effectively discriminating against Healy's sincerely held religious beliefs.

Healy's request for religious exemption cited a 2005 letter from the Vatican's Pontifical Academy for Life which condemned the use of cell lines from abortions in vaccines and supported Catholics' right to refuse them while not requiring them to reject the medicines.

In May, 2007, Capt. Brent Pennington rejected Healy's request, saying Catholic teaching "does not state that these immunizations are against the religious tenets of the Catholic Church."

"Please note that the refusal to be vaccinated or failure to comply with a lawful order to be vaccinated is a violation of Coast Guard regulations," Pennington wrote Healy. "Any member who refuses to be vaccinated or fails to comply with a lawful order to be vaccinated is subject to military proceedings under [the Uniform Code of Military Justice] or other appropriate administrative proceedings at the unit commander's discretion."

All members of the Coast Guard must be vaccinated against a broad spectrum of diseases. The requirement for all active-duty personnel to be inoculated against Hepatitis A was instituted in May 2006. While a vaccine derived from animal sources is awaiting FDA approval, the immunization procedure currently available in the U.S. is based on lung cells taken from an elective abortion performed at 14 weeks approximately 40 years ago.

This was horrifying news to me. Is this old news that I somehow missed? All current Hep A vaccines are made from murdered children? I am in shock.

Would rather die of the disease than be cured by the remedy

Oh great. I had to have a Hep jab when I went overseas a few years ago.

Forty years ago would have made that abortion in 1967 and, if memory serves me correctly, abortions were performed then only to save the life of a woman. Abortion on demand didn’t get rolling until the 1970’s, a few years after the Roe vs. Wade ruling by the Supremes.

In those days the reason for most elective abortions had to due with tubal pregnancies, which are always fatal to the mother. The placenta, rather than securing a place on the wall of the womb, embeds in a fallopian tube instead.

Just let me die an honorable death...I would not wish to survive by use of this vaccine.

Thanks for the clarification. I read the article twice, but I read too fast.

Still, I don’t think this is right. And I wonder if there are many Americans who are aware.

I don’t know.. would you automatically reject a kidney from a murder victim? Especially in this case where the intent is to keep your unit safe...

Between using aborted children’s lungs to cure me and dying … gee, just a little thought here … death, and be in the arms of Jesus, would be my choice.

Not even close to kidney from a murder victim. Large difference, in my opinion.

On the other thread someone posted an explanation stating that the male baby was aborted at 14 weeks in 1966 due to psychological health of the mother. Whatever that means!

From what some of the other posts there state, more vaccines are out there using cells from aborted foetuses. This is quite distressing.

Sorry if this thread is a repeat, but I searched abortion and vaccine and found nothing before I posted.

Apparently the Pope’s Christian theology doesn’t hold as much water in the military as does Mohammed’s teachings. We cater to the Islamic dregs of the earth, the terrorists, as we grant each and every religious request they make; prayer blankets, korans, cells facing towards Mecca, porkless meals, foot baths, prayer sessions five times a day. But a patriotic Catholic military Officer asks to be excused from receiving a vaccination that was derived from the babies slautered enmasse in the abortion mills and that’s too much to ask.
