    Much-hyped Moderna mRNA-1273 Covid-19 Vaccine Uses Aborted Fetal Cells – Sanofi Pasteur’s Version Does Not (Clearwater, FL) In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, pharmaceutical companies are racing to provide a vaccine to prevent further spread of the disease. Unfortunately, Moderna, the company that has been recently touted in news headlines for its developing mRNA-1273 vaccine to fight the virus, uses aborted fetal cell cells. Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director of Children of God for Life, a prolife organization whose mission is to end the use of aborted fetal material in vaccines and medicines, said her suspicions were raised after checking Moderna’s...

    I have received a few requests from pro-lifers like Vicki:Can you provide some clarity to the Pepsi/cells from aborted babies controversy.  I cannot sort out whether this is valid or not. Yes and NoBottom line: There are no aborted embryonic or fetal cells in any of PepsiCo’s final products.But: Aborted cells are used in the development of artificial flavor enhancers by biotech company Senomyx, with which PepsiCo signed a four-year, $30 million agreement in 2010 for research and development. No Pepsi products containing Senonymx flavor enhancers should be expected until 2013.Senomyx’s disputed cell line is HEK-293, derived from the kidney...

    Little upsets pro-life people more than learning that things they consider innocent are actually tainted with the shedding of innocent blood. This long list of guilt-ridden products includes childhood vaccines, wrinkle creams and even your favorite soft drinks and chewing gum The problem is, it’s hard to keep it all straight even if you are trying to avoid putting products in you that are obtained through the death of a baby. Fortunately, Children of God for Life has produced an easy reference guide—a one page list of fetal call products. CLICK HERE FOR A PDF DOWNLOAD OF FETAL CELL PRODUCTS....

    SAN FRANCISCO — Cells from fetuses have “unique properties” that aid in healing, boasts a Swiss biopharmaceutical firm, in response to complaints that it uses fetal cell lines in skin-care products.A Christian watchdog group called Children of God for Life brought attention to the fact that the company, Neocutis, used the cell lines, derived from an abortion, in the products.“It’s absolutely deplorable,” said the Tennessee group’s founder and executive director, Debi Vinnedge. “It’s not even for humanitarian reasons. They are exploiting the remains of a deliberately slaughtered baby for nothing other than vanity.”Vinnedge usually concentrates her watchdog efforts on...
  • Mandating Gardasil: A Gross Infringement On Parental Rights

    Children of God for Life is urging West Virginia lawmakers to scrap HB 2835 mandating Merck's new Gardasil HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccine. Following last week' hotly debated Executive Order by Governor Perry to mandate Gardasil in Texas, West Virginia is the latest of at least two dozen states proposing to add the controversial vaccine as a requirement for school attendance. However, unlike Texas and 48 other states including DC, which have laws allowing parents to opt-out, WVA and Mississippi are the only two States that do not provide religious or philosophical exemptions for vaccines. "It is utterly disgraceful that...

    Loving our enemies? By Leslie Hanks   One of the most difficult aspects of this walk we have as followers of Jesus, is the imprecation to love our enemies.   Who wants to do that?    A particularly vivid example in many of our lives at this juncture in history, is the wicked troika who seem to hold the fate of our friend Terri Schindler Schiavo in their hands.   One writer asks the question about Terri’s former spouse, “husband or monster?”   Monster, I say!!  It gives me some measure of comfort to describe him that way, I’m sorry...

    Please read the statement released by the National Catholic Bioethics Center regarding the aborted fetal cell line research at Georgetown University - and our response. And then I ask you to spread this message far and wide to every Christian you know. These people are supposed to be giving guidance and direction to our Bishops and Church leaders. And for those of you who have faithfully followed our work, you will be shocked to learn that not only does this Catholic organization think that Georgetown's research is perfectly acceptable, they believe the pharmaceutical industry is blameless as well! In Christ...

    WASHINGTON, DC, February 2, 2004 ( - Georgetown University Right to Life, the official pro-life club of the Catholic University, was incredulous that their Catholic school was using cell lines from aborted babies and found it even more unbelievable that the university would continue to use the cell lines after the research was recently publicly exposed. In related news, Children of God for Life, the pro-life group which initially discovered Georgetown's unethical research and brought it to the attention of Washington Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, has launched an online petition to stop the university's use of aborted fetal cell lines. They...

    URGENT - ACTION NEEDED AT ONCE While many have heard that Terri Schiavo's feeding tube has been re-inserted, her life is in eminent danger. Michael Schiavo is still her legal guardian. The would-be murderer is responsible for guarding his own victim! In addition when Terri was moved from hospice, he immediately blocked visitation rights at the hospital for her parents, siblings and family priest - the only source of Terri's comfort, love and joy. An emergency motion ordered visitation restored for the family but it was not received in the attorney's offices until 5:15PM today. By the time the family...

Yes they are fighting it...the attorneys for the husband are trying to sue the governor - they are trying anything they can pull - and they are scaring people into refusing treatment. Michael is still legal guardian so he has some rights - but he may lose them quickly (we hope!) The family has filed for a guardian et litem to be assigned at once...already rejected by one judge earlier today. That will change, mark my words!!! Meanwhile, she has an IV - not...

    SPECIAL ALERT:  New Smalllpox Vaccine May Use Aborted Fetal Cell Line, MRC-5 The Washington Post announced the award of a contract for the development of a new smallpox vaccine to Oravax/Acambis Corporation. The proposal presented to the CDC and FDA would encompass using "human fibroblasts."  We checked the proposed ingredients through the CDC and found they intend to use aborted fetal cell line MRC-5 as the cell substrate for growing the virus. The CDC report also stated that other established animal substrates such as chick embryo, (used in Rabies vaccine) Vero Cell Lines and FRHL-2 Cell lines were viable ...
