Two Covid-19 vaccines made with human fetal tissue

by Jennifer Stella
Several marketed vaccinations, including two Covid-19 vaccinations, are produced using human fetal tissue, including:

  • Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 injection: produced in genetically modified human embryonic retinal cells (PER.C6 TetR).
  • AstraZeneca Covid-19 injection: produced in genetically modified human embryonic kidney cells (HEK 293).
  • Chicken pox vaccines (Proquad, Varivax and Zostavax):  produced in human fetal lung tissue (MRC-5).
  • Hepatitis A vaccines (Vaqta, Havrix, Twinrix): produced in human fetal lung tissue (MRC-5).
  • MMR vaccines: produced in human fetal lung tissue (WI-38).

For a complete list of labeled vaccine ingredients, Johns Hopkins University publishes an up-to-date list, found here:

Concerning the Moderna mRNA covid-19 injection: Moderna’s 2018 SEC filing clearly states that, “Currently, mRNA is considered a gene therapy product by the FDA. Unlike certain gene therapies that irreversibly alter cell DNA and could act as a source of side effects, mRNA based medicines are designed to not irreversibly change cell DNA; however, side effects observed in gene therapy could negatively impact the perception of mRNA medicines despite the differences in mechanism.”

In 2020, it was discovered/revealed that RNA has a direct effect on DNA stability, according to Professor Klungland. [Source:].

Also in 2020, Sanofi Pasteur (a giant pharmaceutical company based in Lyon, France) announced its abandonment of the MRC-5 fetal cell line in the development and production of its polio vaccine, Poliovax. Sanofi continues to produce the Imovax rabies vaccine: produced in human fetal lung tissue (MRC-5).

Also, the presence of fetal DNA fragment contaminants in injections has been linked to autism spectrum disorder. [See letter from Dr. Deisher, and paper: “Epidemiologic and molecular relationship between vaccine manufacture and autism spectrum disorder prevalence” at].

  1. I believe that I heard the Pope say in spite of these revelations, if you are offered a vaccine to get it regardless of which one it is.

  2. The pope and bishops say that we may take vaccines made with use of cells from aborted babies, to protect ourselves and others, without moral culpability, if there are no alternatives. But we need to protest to drug companies that they not use aborted fetal cells in the research, development and manufacturing of vaccines as there are other cells available.
    The two best resources for accurate information and addresses are National Catholic Bioethical Center ( and United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (
    Also we need to protest to our elected officials that they not give taxpayer dollars for research that uses aborted fetal cells as other cells are available.

    • would this be the same elected officials who voted to rip the legs, arms and heads off of unborn infants, or just born?

  3. As a consumer, I will boycott any company that uses murdered aborted babies to make their product. Think about this, think, people in these companies took a human baby and …

    • The numbers have grown on people who forgot how to think logically and in this case spiritually! Just sick!!

  4. Well, this is a new moral conundrum…We can save Grandma, but we have to grind up baby to do it. Maybe there are other moral conundrums we involve ourselves in daily without even thinking about it?
    We kill some animals to make food to feed our own preferred pet animals. We kill the woodchuck that is helping itself to our garden, then we have amphibian crossing guards monitoring the roads on a rainy night to protect their precious lives.

  5. I believe if we were faced with a disease with a100% case fatality rate, taking these vaccines might be understandable…. maybe. Maybe, if there were no effective therapeutics or other alternatives. ….Comparing the case fatality rate of various diseases reveals that there are very few diseases that even approach a FIVE percent case fatality rate…. and this one is not one of them.
    Many doctors from early on have had great treatment results with various therapeutic treatments, ranging from things as simple as taking extra vitamins and zinc through the protocols used on Trump…. but those doctors are shouted down, ignored, and not treated in any sort of professional, scientific, free speech sort of way….

    Why? Why are so many vaccines based on baby murder? Why is debate verbotten? Why are people so afraid of dying that they pin their hopes of living just a little longer on bloody choices that are utterly avoidable, and that reflect a truly strange understanding of mathematical probability….. and certainty?

  6. The sneaky mandatory-vaccination-registry change was stuck onto a Big money bill at the last minute, after such a ploy had been shot down once already this month. Why…?
    Well, now that we are stuck with it (no pun there), Here’s an idea: Let’s use the tax money and the registry data to track actual health outcomes – vaccinated, versus unvaccinated. Treat the vaccinated the same was as the unvaccinated and then, tally it all up. We are now stuck inside this mandatory registry, it seems. It is for our benefit, we are told. Let’s use it then. If these data were used the right way, and people’s privacy truly respected, as is being claimed – then those signing up to take the research-use-only vaccines could be closely followed. (So far none of the vaccines have been approved by the FDA. That’s because pharma, investors and our government agencies need to study the effects on those who take them first. So far, the vaccines have NOT been tested to detect a reduction in any serious outcome – ER visits, hospital admission, ICU, or death. The vaccines have also not been tested or studied to determine whether they can interrupt transmission of the virus*). So let’s use the registry data for this. I’d rather see this all be Voluntary, never mandatory, but it seems that someone really wanted this change, in order to provide us all with… better service? Time to call for accountability.
