If you visit a cos­met­ics or bath prod­ucts shop, you’ll see plenty of adver­tise­ments that their prod­ucts are “cruelty-​free,” mean­ing that they weren’t tested on ani­mals. You can also now buy veg­e­tar­ian, vegan, gluten-​free and a host of other prod­ucts, exactly to what­ever belief sys­tem you would like. For peo­ple who pay atten­tion to what they are using on their body, this is great news.

Unfor­tu­nately, when you go to the doc­tor and get your vac­ci­na­tion, you get a shot, which you prob­a­bly thought was held to the same stan­dards. Except if you’re Catholic and actu­ally care about abor­tion, this isn’t true, because a large num­ber of the vac­ci­na­tions out there are built from aborted baby stem cells.

I found out about this from a friend that is a nurse, who was try­ing to vac­ci­nate her baby with eth­i­cal vac­ci­na­tions. Her doc­tor was treat­ing her like a nut-​job anti-​vaccination wacko, despite know­ing that she is a nurse. Iron­i­cally, in her case, the doc­tor was not aware of the back­ground cells used to build the MMR vaccine.

The Vat­i­can weighed in back in 2005, say­ing that while use of stem cells to develop ini­tial vac­cines to com­bat seri­ous ill­nesses was OK, it was imper­a­tive that research focus on shift­ing away from aborted stem cells and towards avenues such as ani­mal or adult stem cells. If you won­dered where Planned Par­ent­hood was sell­ing aborted babies, here’s part of the answer: research uni­ver­si­ties, includ­ing such places as Yale. They’ve done a pretty good job of hid­ing the issue, prob­a­bly due to a com­plicit media and a “sci­ence knows best” attitude.

I’ve seen peo­ple die of what we would con­sider rou­tine dis­eases, and I cer­tainly don’t want more out­breaks of Rubella or other nasty dis­eases. And yes, my fam­ily and I are vac­ci­nated. But I find it com­pletely ridicu­lous that on one hand we will fight tooth and nail to defend ani­mal rights, but will then so quickly cast our own species under the bus in the name of sci­ence. It’s 2018. We have alter­na­tives, includ­ing adult stem cells, live vac­cines, ani­mal cells, and the like.

Action is needed. Start by writ­ing your Con­gress­man and demand a trans­fer of fed­eral money from Planned Par­ent­hood to adult stem cell research. Ask your doc­tor what vac­cines you are get­ting, and if there are eth­i­cal alter­na­tives (a good chart is here). Begin demand­ing that your med­ical provider stock eth­i­cal vac­cines. Read up on how vac­cines actu­ally work (RTL’s arti­cle is a good start). Get smart about how you and your fam­ily are vac­ci­nated. Get vaccinated…nobody wants dis­ease out­breaks, but con­tinue to apply pres­sure to move sci­ence onto a more eth­i­cal path. Above all, don’t accept being labeled as an anti-​vaxer or lud­dite. Sci­ence is a path to under­stand­ing the world, but it requires ethics to pre­vent it from becom­ing an end to itself. With­out ethics, sci­ence can jus­tify cruel exper­i­ments that destroy our human­ity.

Sci­ence can cure our body, but it doesn’t have to do so at the cost of our soul.

If you visit a cosmetics or bath products shop, you’ll see plenty of advertisements that their products are “cruelty-free,” meaning that they weren’t tested on animals. You can also now buy vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and a host of other products, exactly to whatever belief system you would like. For people who pay attention to what they are using on their body, this is great news.

Unfortunately, when you go to the doctor and get your vaccination, you get a shot, which you probably thought was held to the same standards. Except if you’re Catholic and actually care about abortion, this isn’t true, because a large number of the vaccinations out there are built from aborted baby stem cells.

I found out about this from a friend that is a nurse, who was trying to vaccinate her baby with ethical vaccinations. Her doctor was treating her like a nut-job anti-vaccination wacko, despite knowing that she is a nurse. Ironically, in her case, the doctor was not aware of the background cells used to build the MMR vaccine.

The Vatican weighed in back in 2005, saying that while use of stem cells to develop initial vaccines to combat serious illnesses was OK, it was imperative that research focus on shifting away from aborted stem cells and towards avenues such as animal or adult stem cells. If you wondered where Planned Parenthood was selling aborted babies, here’s part of the answer: research universities, including such places as Yale. They’ve done a pretty good job of hiding the issue, probably due to a complicit media and a “science knows best” attitude.

I’ve seen people die of what we would consider routine diseases, and I certainly don’t want more outbreaks of Rubella or other nasty diseases. And yes, my family and I are vaccinated. But I find it completely ridiculous that on one hand we will fight tooth and nail to defend animal rights, but will then so quickly cast our own species under the bus in the name of science. It’s 2018. We have alternatives, including adult stem cells, live vaccines, animal cells, and the like.

Action is needed. Start by writing your Congressman and demand a transfer of federal money from Planned Parenthood to adult stem cell research. Ask your doctor what vaccines you are getting, and if there are ethical alternatives (a good chart is here). Begin demanding that your medical provider stock ethical vaccines. Read up on how vaccines actually work (RTL’s article is a good start). Get smart about how you and your family are vaccinated. Get vaccinated…nobody wants disease outbreaks, but continue to apply pressure to move science onto a more ethical path. Above all, don’t accept being labeled as an anti-vaxer or luddite. Science is a path to understanding the world, but it requires ethics to prevent it from becoming an end to itself. Without ethics, science can justify cruel experiments that destroy our humanity.

Science can cure our body, but it doesn’t have to do so at the cost of our soul.
