“There’s a profound moral and ethical dilemma for Christians, in particular, who may be profoundly opposed to the fact that the rubella vaccine that is used in this country and the chickenpox vaccine, amongst others, are grown on aborted fetal cells and, inevitably, children are going to be injected with remnants of those cells and the DNA. And that is a major question that is vexing a lot of people.
It doesn’t seem, however, to be affecting many in the Catholic Church. Their representatives, the Bishops, have supported the removal of the religious exemption to vaccination… absolutely extraordinary situation, where rather than supporting their congregation, they are turning against them and saying that they cannot get into Catholic schools.
We encountered this in Florida just the other day, where they have taken away the right to be in Catholic schools and yet choose not to vaccinate. So, we have the churches actually turning against their congregations in the light of the fact that there is the use of aborted fetal tissues in the manufacture of certain vaccines.”
