Update: COVID-19 Vaccine Candidates and Abortion-Derived Cell Lines

Accurate information about the development and production of COVID-19 vaccines is essential, especially because many proposed candidates use newer molecular technologies for production of a viral vaccine.  One concern regarding the ethical assessment of viral vaccine candidates is the potential use of abortion-derived cell lines in the development, production or testing of a vaccine.  This analysis utilizes data from the primary scientific literature when available, along with data from clinical trial documents, reputable vaccine tracking websites, and published commercial information.1  It is the hope that by providing accurate data, recipients can make well-informed decisions regarding vaccine choices.

Top 7 quotes from dissenting opinions in the June Medical abortion case

The Coronavirus Pandemic and the Ethics of Triage

How ought we think ethically about triage and rationing during a pandemic? How do we decide which patient is given a ventilator and which goes without? Is it permissible to refuse a ventilator so that another may live, even if it means we die? Some basic principles follow, although it must be remembered that such general principles provide guidance without supplanting the needed prudential judgments of qualified and conscientiously informed authorities in concrete situations.

Ignoring the Scientific Facts Doesn’t Make the Pain Go Away

Fetal pain, according to Rep. Dr. Kim Schrier’s statements at a recent hearing in the House of Representatives, is “pseudoscience, total baloney.”  Interestingly, though she recalled caring for extremely premature babies during her pediatric training, perhaps the congresswoman was unaware that, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the medical standard of care for these little ones is to prevent pain, “not only because it is ethical but also because repeated painful exposures have the potential for deleterious consequences.”
