Just don't do it.

The Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans is asking Catholics to avoid the recently-approved Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, which it says is “morally compromised” by its “extensive use of abortion-derived cell lines.”

In a statement on Friday, the archdiocese noted that while deciding whether to receive the vaccine is an individual choice, that “the latest vaccine from Janssen/Johnson & Johnson is morally compromised as it uses the abortion-derived cell line in development and production of the vaccine as well as the testing.”

Can someone please translate this post without the BS language:

It means that development of the vaccine was helped by use of fetal cells from dead babies that had been aborted.

They can also include pluripotent cells that were produced through in-vitro fertilization but were never implanted in a uterus. Not sure if that makes a difference to anti-abortionists. NIH guidelines require informed consent from the donors.

Did you miss-speak?...Fetal cells are not from dead babies.

Cell lines created from fetal stem cells from fetuses aborted in the 1990's have been used in the development of this vaccine and other vaccines.

In 2005, the Vatican approved the use of vaccines that used a cell line from abortion, but allowed doctors and patients to exercise their moral conscience to refuse such a vaccine. The NOLA Archdiocese is simply telling people to avoid the vaccine if possible and to follow the Vatican's statement on the subject.

Most Catholics will ignore the directive like they do birth control.
