Is it true that aborted fetal tissue is used in our vaccinations?

  • vaccines are attenuated microorganisms NOT fetal tissue

  • What are attenuated microorganisms?

  • NO NO NO absolutely not, anyone with any type of biological background could tell you that injecting a foreign tissue into a host could and most likely would be lethal. Vaccines are made from attenuated microorganisms which mean that the microorganism is either dead or the mechanism of infection has been removed. If a person were injected with tissue from another person a VERY massive immune response would take place and MANY people would die. While vaccines DO contain DNA or RNA it is NOT from an aborted fetus it is only from the microorganism that you are being exposed too.

    and where do the microorganism come from?

  • This is not true the reason this rumor got started is the the vaccines for HEP A, MMR, and the chicken pox would only grow on a medium that had human cells in it and the cells were obtained from 2 aborted fetuses when the vaccines were made. There is none of this fetal tissue in these vaccines and today they use a medium with fresh cells (example blood from a living person) to make these vaccines.

  • The microorganism that you are being exposed to will be grown in whatever medium that it is suited for. many are grown on standard agar plates which is a nutrient rich broth. some must be grown in plasma or blood and allowed to replicate in the cells but they most assuredly do not use aborted fetuses for this and they do not need these fetuses in order to mass-produce them.

  • These microorganisms are viruses or bacteria that are literally all around you on every single surface that you can see and touch. Our skin provides a barrier but we are exposed to literally thousands of nasty microbes every day but most of the time we do not know because they either do not get in (our skin is very dry and slightly acidic) or if they do many of them cannot live. Most of the microbes you are exposed to come in through the mouth but since most are not acidophiles they cannot survive past the stomach.

  • Do yourself a huge favor and do the research yourself. If you pull up the list of vaccine ingredients you will without a doubt see fetal tissue. And not just human but monkey and bovine as well... The CDC has a full list of ingredients as do many other sites. If you can't find them or don't want to take the time to just pm me, I'll send it to you...

    There is without a doubt aborted fetal tissue in vaccines.

  • The cells used to produce vaccines do come from cells that were taken from 2 aborted fetuses. One of which was aborted in 1962 and another in 1966. The actual vaccines that you receive do not have any of these human cells left in them because as other people have said that would be lethal. The germ lines used are called MRC-5 and WI-38 and these are the only germ cells used. So while some people may not like it they do use these cells to grow them but you are not being injected with aborted fetus cells.
