Are aborted fetal cell lines used in vaccine manufacturing?

Human fetal cell lines are used to culture some vaccines. They are listed on the CDCs Vaccine Excipient list as WI-38, MRC-5, HEK293, PERC.6.
  • WI-38 is a diploid human cell culture line composed of fibroblasts derived from lung tissue of an aborted female fetus.

  • MRC-5 (Medical Research Council cell strain 5) is a diploid human cell culture line composed of fibroblasts derived from lung tissue of a 14-week-old aborted male fetus.

  • Human embryonic kidney cells 293, also often referred to as HEK 293, HEK-293, 293 cells, or less precisely as HEK cells, are a specific cell line originally derived from human embryonic kidney cells grown in a tissue culture.

  • PERC.6 cell line was derived from human embryonic retinal cells taken from an elective abortion.

  • The newest cell line created in 2015 for vaccines: WALVAX 2 is taken from the lung tissue of a 3-month gestation female who was ultimately selected from among 9 aborted babies. The scientists noted how they followed specific guidelines to mimic WI-38 and MRC-5 in selecting the aborted babies, ranging from 2-4 months gestation. They further noted how they induced labor using a “water bag” abortion to shorten the delivery time and prevent the death of the fetus to ensure live intact organs which were immediately sent to the labs for cell preparation.

Which vaccines utilized aborted fetal materials?

Human Diploid Cells (aborted fetal material) provide the “cell culture” in which vaccine formulas are often grown or nurtured. Current vaccines in circulation which were manufactured using aborted fetal material include:

  • Polio vaccine (inactivated/IPV) & Oral Polio (live virus) drops : Sanofi Pasteur recently announced they are discontinuing the use of aborted fetal cells in the manufacturing of Poliovax, Pentacel, and Quadracel polio vaccines. Ask before receiving these vaccines as it will take some time for the ethically available options to be widely available.

  • Measles, Mumps, Rubella vaccine/MMR (Rubella component)

  • Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Poliomyelitis vaccine (DTaP/TdP)

  • Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccine & Shingles (zoster) vaccine

  • Hepatitis A and Hepatitis A & B vaccines

  • Rabies vaccine

  • Shingles

  • Some Coronavirus vaccines

Is the US Government aware of the dangers?

The United States government has known about the dangers of human DNA from aborted fetal cell-lines since at least 2005. They set guidelines which are supposed to keep the DNA at a specific limit, which they hypothesize will not cause cancer. There is no monitoring of vaccines by our government agencies to ensure those limits are adhered to. Vaccines (MMR, Varicella, and Hepatitis A) sent for independent analysis have consistently shown levels of human fetal DNA that are far beyond the “established safety limits.

Instead of conducting safety studies the FDA regulated the amount of human DNA that could be present in a vaccine to no greater than 10ng.

Unfortunately, the Sound Choice team discovered that the fetal DNA levels ranged anywhere from 142ng – 2000ng per dose, way beyond the so-called “safe” level.

Safety Concerns

“Today, more than 23 vaccines are contaminated by the use of aborted fetal cells. There is no law that requires that consumers be informed that some vaccines are made using aborted fetal cells and contain residual aborted fetal DNA. While newer vaccines produced using aborted fetal cells do inform consumers, in their package inserts, that the vaccines contain contaminating DNA from the cell used to produce the vaccine, they do not identify the cells as being derived from electively aborted human fetuses.”

Dr. Theresa Deisher, Ph.D.

“Not only damaged human cells, but also healthy human cells can take up foreign DNA spontaneously. Foreign human DNA taken up by human cells will be transported into nuclei and be integrated into host genome, which will cause phenotype change. Hence, residual human fetal DNA fragments in vaccine can be one of causes of autism spectrum disorder in children through vaccination.”
