You may have read recent statements from the Vatican and USCCB about the moral implications of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine; see below. The USCCB article reported that neither vaccine options available in the US from Pfizer and Moderna used morally compromised cell lines from aborted fetuses in their design, development, or production, but both companies used a commonly used, but morally compromised HEK293 cell line in a confirmatory test. Because the connection to these morally compromised cell lines is so remote, the Vatican and USCCB have approved the reception of these vaccines for Catholics, provided that better options are not available.
With this guarded approval, the USCCB letter further cautioned against complacency or desensitization regarding the gravely evil nature of abortion and our obligation to do what we can to oppose it.
In this month that we remember the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision in the US, please join me in praying and working toward the end of abortion – may we see the day when the sanctity of every human life from conception to natural death is preserved in our country and world.
