Live virus vaccines are typically grown in fetal cell lines developed from organs of aborted babies. The cell lines are listed as an ingredient in the vaccines as a lab connotation. Those connotations stand for the following individuals:
WI-38: Developed in 1964, taken from the lung tissue of a 3 month gestation female baby. WI = Wistar Institute, 38 = 38th baby. Is the Growth medium for the Rubella virus- RA273.
RA273: Taken from the lung of a 3 month gestation baby. R=Rubella, A=Abortus, 27=27th baby, 3=3rd tissue explant. (Then cultivated on the WI-38 aborted fetal cell line to get the MMR viruses. Stanley Plotkin, vaccine developer, would later reveal that 40 more babies were aborted after RA273 was successfully isolated, with virus strains taken from 34 of them. A total of over 80 separate abortions were involved in the research and final production of the present day rubella vaccine- 21 abortions from the original WI-1 through WI-26 fetal cell lines that failed, plus WI-38 itself, plus 67 from the attempts to isolate the rubella virus.)
MERC-5: Developed in 1970 from the lung tissue of a 14 week gestation male baby. Introduced in Great Britain by the Medical Research Council.
HEK-293: Developed in 1973 from aborted baby kidney cells genetically engineered combined with adenovirus. 293 is the number of the experiment.
Per C6: Developed in 2001 from an isolated retina of a baby about 18 weeks gestation. This cell line was made to be ‘immortal’ but failed. It caused cancerous tumors in mice. Was used in the HIV vaccine trial but caused cancer so it was pulled. Crucell-advent of their PER C6 fetal cell line took off. PER C6 is a normal cell that has been modified to resist cell senescence. In doing so, it introduces the potential for cancer to form in the vaccine recipient.
WI-26 VA4: An SV40 transformed derivative of WI-26, a human diploid cell line derived from embryonic lung tissue of a male Caucasian. The cells have SV40 T-Ag but infectious virus has not been rescued.
WALVAX2: Recently developed, in China, from the lung tissue of a 3 month gestation baby girl, chosen from 9 aborted babies. This cell line is to replace the current MERC-5 and WI-38 which are depleting.
PBS recently reported on how fetal tissue is VITAL to vaccine and drug development:
Why does this matter? Two reasons:
#1: A considerable portion of America is Pro-Life making the religious exemption viable and important.
#2: It is established scientific fact that loose, living DNA can insert itself into the genome of any host. The introduction of aborted fetal DNA via injection has never been studied by vaccine manufacturers nor the FDA. Many scientists hypothesize that some childhood cancers and neurological disorders can be traced to genetic interference. http://soundchoice.org/research/
New research shows that nearly complete DNA from the aborted fetus is being found in the MMR vaccine. This DNA is reported as being abnormal and possibly tumorigenic, meaning cancer causing. “The vaccine should be considered defective and potentially dangerous to human health.”
Religious Reasons to not get vaccinated
Dr. Theresa Deisher published a study indicating a link between the MMR and autism due to the fetal cells used. Unfortunately, this work is a clear conflict of interest, as she is developing an ethically sound version of the MMR vaccine, which does not contain fetal cells. While the results are interesting, I would like to see this study repeated by independent researchers to verify that it models reality.
