We are urgently appealing to President Trump to direct that any new COVID-19 vaccine, receiving federal taxpayer funding, uses NO aborted human fetal cells in its development.
Please SIGN this petition which asks President Trump to prioritize only ethical COVID-19 vaccine development with federal funds, and keep his pro-life promise.
The Trump Administration’s Health and Human Services guidelines were only redrawn last summer to prohibit the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Government’s main medical research center, from using human tissue obtained from abortion in their research.
But, scientists in the West have long relied on using aborted baby tissue to unethically produce many of the most common vaccines used today, including the MMR vaccine, the polio vaccine, and the Hepatitis A vaccine, among others.
However, scientists in Japan have, for many years, ethically produced reliable vaccines from animal cell lines.
And now, some pharmaceutical companies with facilities in the U.S. are also employing similar, ethical techniques to produce the influenza vaccine.
Thus, we know that a vaccine for COVID-19 can also be ethically sourced and manufactured. ….
