The Ethics of Vaccinations

This article on “Life After Death” considers whether it is ethical to use vaccines that save millions of lives but are derived from the tissue of aborted children.  Some pro-life advocates “have a deep aversion” to using vaccines that may contain “the remains of an aborted child,” says Debi Vinnedge, founder of Children of God for Life.  But Gene Rudd, the senior vice president of the Christian Medical & Dental Associations, believes since the manufacturing of such vaccines does not require ongoing abortions, it’s permissible for Christians to use them until alternatives are available.  This brief report may be a good introduction to the issue for students in the medical sciences, biology, ethics, and public policy courses.
