I just found that out and was sickened. That some vaccines are made with substances from aborted foetuses!!!
How can you tell which are, do you know?
Also the same with skin creams, etc?
There are some (probably illegal) skin 'creams' and products usually from the Caribbean. None of those products are available here (legally) I'm fairly sure of that.
As for the vaccines, it's not exactly aborted babies being ground into vaccines.
There are a few cell lines that are used in the production of certain vaccines (examples, Rabies, Rubella, and I'm not sure about varicella aka 'chicken pox,' I'd have to look) that were originally derived
from aborted fetal tissue.
In the case of two major cell lines, they were derived from fetuses that were infected with Rubella, which is nearly always fatal to unborn children. In fact, this is the reason we vaccinate for Rubella, not because you or I cannot handle it (or even kids) but because a pregnant woman's fetus that gets infected with Rubella will almost certainly die.
I'm not going to speculate about whether the aborted fetuses would have 'died anyway' since that wouldn't make it any less of an abortion, but if one is truly concerned
abortions then one should get the Rubella vaccine, because it would most certainly result in abortions or at the very least dead babies if we have an epidemic of Rubella.
A couple of the most common cell lines were obtained from abortions that took place in the 60's, of Rubella infected fetuses.
I believe there is another cell line that was not
from an infected fetus, but was a 'voluntary reduction' (hate that term), but I'd have to do some searching to find out which one it is, and which vaccines it was involved in.However
, it's worth pointing out that today's cells are many, many, many, many 'generations' removed from those cells, it's not as if it is the actual cells from the 1960's themselves.
Hopefully you don't get rabies, since there's no alternative, but for MMR there was an 'alternative' where the Rubella component contained none of this for people with such objections. They have since stopped making it due to low demand.
It's worth pointing out also, if you have access, and even though it it not licensed in the US (not that meaningful) the Japanese vaccine contains no aborted cell lines. It's at least as 'safe' as the US version (however safe you think vaccines are), as it is given to an entire country.
