Vatican: OK to get virus vaccines using abortion cell lines

Source: AP

The Vatican on Monday declared that it is “morally acceptable” for Roman Catholics to receive COVID-19 vaccines based on research that used fetal tissue from abortions.

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican's watchdog office for doctrinal orthodoxy, said it addressed the question after receiving several requests for “guidance” during recent months. The doctrine office noted that bishops, Catholic groups and experts have offered “diverse and sometimes conflicting pronouncements” on the matter.

The Vatican concluded that “it is morally acceptable to receive COVID-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses” in the research and production process when “ethically irreproachable” vaccines aren’t available to the public. But it stressed that the “licit” uses of such vaccines “does not and should not in any way imply that there is a moral endorsement of the use of cell lines proceeding from aborted fetuses."

In its statement, the Vatican explained that obtaining vaccines that do not pose an ethical dilemma is not always possible. It cited circumstances in countries “where vaccines without ethical problems are not made available to physicians and patients” or where special storage or transport conditions make their distribution more difficult.

"The Vatican hasn’t said if and when Francis would be vaccinated nor which vaccine he might receive."

1. Another clear Papal teaching for conservative Catholics to ignore...

...while they attack everyone else for disobeying clear Papal teachings.

7. And the story

today (in my morning paper) that Muslims and Jews are allowed to take vaccines that have been made with pork gelatin.

(It wasn't this story, probably AP or Reuters, but this works.)

13. Bishop Vigneron in Detroit
