    Abortion-Derived Cell Lines NOT Used for Production, Some Use in Laboratory Tests   Washington, D.C. – Today, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted full approval for the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.  Scientists and researchers at the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) have been studying the Pfizer vaccine from a pro-life perspective since March 2020.   “The […]

  • CLI Statement on Johnson & Johnson Vaccine: Abortion-Derived Cell Lines Used in Production Process

    “For many Americans, the approval of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine raises renewed questions about the use of cells derived from elective abortions. Many leading vaccine candidates supported by Operation Warp Speed, including the approved vaccines produced by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna, do not use abortion-derived cell lines in their production. Unlike the majority of those candidates, Johnson & Johnson does use these cell lines in the production process.

  • Muestra de la infección viral y la producción de vacunas

    Como resultado de la rápida propagación del nuevo coronavirus, técnicamente conocido como SARS-CoV-2, los gobiernos de Estados Unidos y de otros paises han pasado por varios intentos fallidos en la producción de una vacuna efectiva contra esta enfermedad que se transmite tan rápidamente.  Ha surgido una selección de candidatos para esta vacuna  y se encuentran en distintas etapas de desarrollo y de prueba.  Al mismo tiempo, se han manifestado otras preguntas acerca de la manera en la cual estas vacunas son producidas; inlcuyendo los procesos sobre los cuales millones de americanos tienen objeciones en material moral.  Hoy en día, la variedad de medios utilizados para producir vacunas es inmensa; en algunos casos son éticament lícitas, mientras que en otros los procedimientos que utilizan son questionables.  Para ayudar a la comprensión de estos modos de producción, ofrecemos una guía básica respecto a la ciencia involucrada.
