Your Eminences, Your Excellencies,

The “Note on the Morality of Using Some Anti-COVID-19 Vaccines” was issued last year in the absence of complete data on both the nature of the gene serum and its components.

The safety and effectiveness of individual vaccines is determined after a period of experimentation that normally lasts for several years. In this case, the health authorities have decided to carry out experimentation on the entire world population as an exception to the usual practice of the scientific community, international standards and the laws of individual nations. This means that the entire population finds itself in the condition of being susceptible to suffering the adverse effects of the vaccine, at their own risk, when normally experimentation is done on a voluntary basis and carried out on a limited number of subjects who are paid to undergo it. ….
