The U.S. bishops’ conference is encouraging Catholics to get a coronavirus vaccination because it’s a “moral responsibility for the common good,” even is some vaccines are connected to abortion-derived cell lines.
The Catholic Medical Association and three other physician-led organizations said Dec. 2 the “expeditious availability of effective vaccines” to fight COVID-19 is laudable.
The treatment that President Donald Trump has received to fight COVID-19 has turned the focus on an experimental drug that shows promise in combating the coronavirus but is raising ethical questions about the cell line that helped researchers develop the medicine.
Catholic pro-life leaders say they are seeing some progress in the development of vaccines with the use of ethical animal cell lines instead of cell lines derived from abortions.
