Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) rushed-to-market Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine was recently granted emergency use authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which means there is now a third Big Pharma contender vying for a piece of the Chinese virus fear pie. Not everyone is excited about the new jab, though, including the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
Several higher-ups at the Roman Catholic religious organization issued a statement denouncing J&J’s experimental injection because it contains ingredients derived from human babies that were murdered in their mothers’ wombs. Instead, the USCCB is urging congregants who want to get jabbed for Chinese germs to instead opt for either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine, both of which supposedly do not contain ingredients made from aborted fetal remnants.
“If one has the ability to choose a vaccine, Pfizer or Moderna’s vaccines should be chosen over Johnson & Johnson’s,” say Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of Kansas City, Kan., and Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Ind., both of whom are chairs at the USCCB.
The two bishops stopped short of telling American Catholics to avoid the J&J jab altogether, though. They are simply urging congregants to take one of the messenger RNA shots, if possible, instead of the J&J shot. (Related: You can learn more about what mRNA “vaccines” do at this link.)
“We should oppose authorizing or funding research rooted in the taking of innocent human life,” added Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission at the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). “That does not mean, though, that people must shun medical treatments that can save lives because they were discovered through means of which we would not necessarily approve.”
Late last year, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary head Al Mohler urged Southern Baptists to take a Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine because doing so, he suggested, is a way for Christians to “love thy neighbor.”
“Pressing against disease and viruses is part of our mandate,” Mohler wrote in a lengthy piece that blatantly took the Bible out of context and misappropriated the words of Jesus to push the plandemic agenda. “Medical treatment is an extension of God’s common grace and Christians have always understood this.”
The Vatican’s official “Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith,” meanwhile, has decided that when “ethically irreproachable COVID-19 vaccines are not available, it is morally acceptable to receive COVID-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and production process.”
The aborted baby cell line used in J&J’s Wuhan flu vaccine is known as PER.C6. It originated in an 18-week-old baby that was murdered back in 1985. These types of fetal cell lines can be used as “miniature ‘factories’ to generate vast quantities of adenoviruses … that are used as vehicles to ferry genes from the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19),” according to a June 2020 article published in Science.
As it turns out, both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna China virus vaccines were made using human fetal cells. In their case, however, these fetal cells were only used during the testing phase of the jabs to determine their “efficacy.”
“While neither vaccine is completely free from any connection to morally compromised cell lines,” the bishops added, “in this case the connection is very remote from the initial evil of the abortion.”
An exception among other Catholic leaders, Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Tex., says he opposes the use of any Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) that was made using aborted fetal tissue, which includes all of them.
