2021 Life Ministry Conference
As time goes by, more people will be offered the opportunity to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Protecting yourself, family members, and society from the ill effects of the pandemic are good goals, but others have decided not to get vaccinated. They may be worried about side effects, mistrust the healthcare system, or are cautious for other reasons. Some pro-life Christians are concerned that fetal cell lines derived from induced abortions may be involved in the development and testing of COVID vaccines. For example, HEK 293 (human embryonic kidney) cells were utilized in the testing phase of some COVID vaccines. This presentation will take into account practical matters and apply religious and philosophical ethical standards to this issue so that participants can make informed decisions about coronavirus inoculations.
