is an article from Scientific American
on the use of aborted fetal tissue for research. The article is from 2015 so that it predates Covid-19. The article also addresses why the research animals (usually various mice) die and have to be replaced. Often it is because their natural immune system is removed and replaced with human stuff. They eventually die after shortened lives. (Not so good if you are a mouse!)
The article shows how this tissue is used for research in a number of categories of diseases. My point being, if one is going to avoid the Covid-19 vaccine due to aborted fetal tissue being used in the research, then, there are any number of other treatments for other diseases that fall into the same category.
The article points out that the research does not drive the abortions. But the aborted tissue would otherwise simply be destroyed.
It's not a clear cut issue by any means.
is what the CDC (Centers for Disease Control - a US agency) has to say about whether the vaccine can alter DNA or not. And similar news articles:
Don't get me wrong. I'm not for or against anyone getting the vaccine. That's a personal decision. But the conspiracy aspect of all this has two sides.
