I Prayed have prayed
Father, give us Your wisdom as we discern through these vaccines. We want to honor and please you, Father.

Catholic bishops across the U.S. are encouraging people to educate themselves about the COVID-19 vaccines and the link to abortion before being vaccinated.

While many bishops encouraged people to be vaccinated, they discouraged people from getting the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, when possible, because it was developed with cell lines created from aborted babies. . .

Many Catholic bishops have expressed “moral concerns” about the newly-approved Johnson & Johnson vaccine. According to research by the Charlotte Lozier Institute, the company used cell lines created from aborted babies in the design and development, production and confirmatory lab tests to create the vaccine. No cells from aborted babies are in the actual vaccine.

Fetal cell lines are cells taken from an aborted baby and multiplied in a lab “into many cells of the same kind,” the research group explained. “These can be grown indefinitely and further multiplied, creating lines of cells that are sometimes used for science experiments.” . . .

In the case of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the cell line was created from a baby who was aborted in 1985, the Spokesman-Review reports.

Bishop Walter Hurley of the Diocese of Gaylord, Michigan, admitted that the issue is confusing as well as concerning, Up North Live reports. He and the six other Catholic bishops in Michigan issued a statement last week describing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as “morally problematic.” . . .

“What we have to recognize is the distance between the development of the vaccine and the actual production and use of it,” Hurley continued. “There’s a great deal of distance between those realities. And so the farther away you get from those who may have created the vaccines, the less moral responsibility there is.”

The Catholic leaders encouraged pro-lifers to seek out the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines when possible. However, the bishops also emphasized that Catholics can receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine “in good conscience if no other alternative is available.” . . .

Bishop Robert Brennan of Columbus, Ohio, expressed similar cautions in a statement this week, but he also wondered why pharmaceutical companies are relying on cell lines from aborted babies when ethical sources are available, according to the Columbus Dispatch. . . .

All currently available COVID-19 vaccines have some connection to aborted babies – some more than others. The Charlotte Lozier Institute identified several that are being developed ethically without cell lines derived from aborted babies, but they are not available yet.

Pro-lifers and religious leaders have conflicting opinions about the coronavirus vaccines. . . .

In the case of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, cell lines created from an aborted baby were used in “the animal-phase testing,” but they were not used in the development or production of the vaccines. Because the connection to abortion is small, many say the vaccines are acceptable, especially when no alternative is available. However, others argue that any connection to abortion, even a remote one, makes a vaccine unethical.

Vaccines can be and are produced with ethical materials, including pluripotent stem cells and tissue from placentas, umbilical cords and amniotic fluid. In 2018, the Trump administration created a $20 million grant to invest in these ethical research alternatives.

Last year, the Charlotte Lozier Institute identified 17 research groups that were conducting ethical coronavirus vaccine experiments while five that were not. The five using cell lines created from aborted babies in their research include the University of Oxford (AstraZeneca), Johnson & Johnson and the University of Pittsburgh. . . .

Lord you know what is truth concerning these vaccines & how they were created. You know what they contain that may cause hurt, harm or danger to those receiving them. I pray the wisdom of God over each person that considers receiving these experimental drugs & their potential to cause more harm than help. You are greater than this virus & greater than this vaccine. you are mighty to save & mighty to deliver. Deliver your people from every attempt of man to alter human cell structure with this new technology of creating something that has not been proven in Jesus Name. I plead the blood over every person that is your child. cover & protect those who receive these vaccines. Let every malicious attempt of the enemy be thwarted & rendered powerless, inoperative & ineffective in its efforts in Jesus Name Amen.

Covid is almost completely gone. I would not take any vaccine if you have not taken it already.
The media is “brainwashing” folks so easily. Fauci has been a “mouthpiece” for people with some bad agendas.
People need to think for themselves and their families, as the government is never the answer.
ASK GOD HE WILL LEAD YOU………Pray and seek TRUTH!

Lord help us to understand what this world will do next and help us to know what to do.Your Word says, “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19 We are trusting in You.

This is the thing that you gotta consider, God did not command is to have a vaccine or even consider it. Jesus is our healer so there is no covid virus. This virus and vaccine is just a way to steer people from God. When you see that this is a way to have safety apart from God, you realize that this whole agenda is against God.

This is why I struggle to have confidence in these vaccines. It really is hard to trust in them. It is my understanding that out of all the vaccines, Phizer and the other vaccine that starts with the letter M do not have aborted babies or stem cells. It is hard to know what to believe.

I have to agree with “In the case of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, cell lines created from an aborted baby were used in “the animal-phase testing,” but they were not used in the development or production of the vaccines. Because the connection to abortion is small, many say the vaccines are acceptable, especially when no alternative is available.

I’m just going to take a stab in the dark at this and wonder if we can perhaps look at this another way. While I am completely against abortion, transgenderism in sports etc.., vaccines and every evil thing the fake Biden administration is capable of, what if that one aborted baby was the reason many lives might be saved? It’s just a thought that came to me suddenly.

    I my heart I know that there was only ONE who died for many and that was our Savior Jesus Christ.
    All others were murdered by society.

    Robyn, I understand what you are saying, because that same thought briefly flitted into my mind as well. But as I pondered it, I came to the conclusion that the fetal tissue still is from a sacrificed child and innocent blood, so it would still be unclean.

Father God Almighty, YOU are the Creator. All life begins and ends with You. YOU are the Breath of LIFE.

Abortion destroys life. Each abortion destroys a precious baby, one tiny life at a time. Today the magnitude of this evil is staggering. In the USA, over 60million babies have died through abortion! Lord forgive us for falling for the enemy’s deception and calling this wickedness women’s health. Father God, forgive us for not stopping this genocide.

Father God, How can we ignore the connection of this evil extermination of life to a Vaccine that is supposed to save lives? Why isn’t the church strongly condemning this? Why aren’t Christians everywhere saying this is wrong?

Father, give us wisdom and discernment to recognize the enemy’s tricks. Give us strength and the knowledge to fight this evil even with hidden connections.

Lord we cry out to you for help. The evil and corruption in our nation and in our world knows no bounds. Lord make a way when there is no way. We pray this in the precious name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
Amen

      Thank you for I pray. I don’t see any info about aborted babies being used elsewhere for the vaccine it reminds me of the movie many years ago called solvent green. The society was taking this solvent green to eat daily as the world had endured war and large scale famine The ingredient was human beings . Well here we are experimenting with the aborted. How horrible is this The Democrats are Demoncrats. Shout it out we are next.
