coronavirus rubber gloveWith the development of vaccines to combat the coronavirus becoming a growing concern, a watchdog for life says at least one option shows promise and is ethical.

For 20 years, Children of God for Life has investigated vaccines and medicines and found that cell lines from aborted babies have been used in some cases. So the organization's executive director, Debi Vinnedge, began to look into claims of vaccines to prevent the new coronavirus. One, Moderna, had been highly touted in recent news.

"When Moderna came out with this information, of course it required going in to see what they were doing and how the vaccine was being made," Vinnedge explains. "Unfortunately, the first thing I found was that it was using aborted fetal cell lines in part of the vaccine that's critical as far as the way the vaccine works."

So Vinnedge began probing other companies to see if they were utilizing ethical means of producing a vaccine.

"We found that Sanofi Pasteur, who is a very well-known manufacturer of vaccines in the country and ... in the world, has actually got a vaccine that's morally produced in the works," the Children of God for Life executive reports.

So it will be a question of whether people want to use a morally acceptable vaccine in the future or one that uses aborted baby cell lines.
