Letters of Objection to U.S. COVID Vaccine Manufacturers

May 11, 2021 11:12 am

Earlier this year the diocese clarified that it is morally licit to receive the COVID vaccines available in the United States in certain circumstances, despite the use of abortion-derived cell lines in their development and manufacture.  See https://tinyurl.com/3vft2v54

The diocese emphasized, however, “This does not mean that there is not a grave concern raised by companies obtaining and using the illicit material.  For this reason, the Church also instructs us that though one may morally receive the vaccine for a serious reason, one also has the obligation to object to the continued use of illicitly-derived material and to request such companies to end these practices.”
