What Are the Products That Use Aborted Fetuses?

Do some products contain parts of aborted babies?

The short answer is: “Yes.”

However, today’s consumer products are not the soap and lampshades of “recycled” Nazi concentration camp victims that we see in museums. The new utilitarian use of “people as product” is a sophisticated enterprise that is not visible to the human eye.

Perhaps you are a diligent supporter and promoter of pro-life legislation, only vote for pro-life candidates, and avoid entertainment produced by musicians and actors who openly support Planned Parenthood. However, regardless of how strongly you support life, you may unknowingly be cooperating in aborted fetal cell research by purchasing products that use aborted fetuses either in the product itself or in its development.

Perhaps you take Enbrel (Amgen) to relieve your rheumatoid arthritis. Maybe someone you know was prescribed Zoastavax, a shingles vaccine, at an annual physical. It may be that your mother suffers from diabetes and renal failure and obtains relief from Arensep (Amgen). Perhaps your grandfather was administered the blood product Repro during an angioplasty. Many school districts require that your children receive the MMRII (the Merck Measles-Mumps-Rubella vaccine). Your children might enjoy using coffee creamers and eat soup with artificial flavor enhancers (Senomyx and Firmenich) tested on artificial taste buds engineered from aborted fetal cells.

Because of the complexities of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) labeling, you would probably not know that these products come from the abortion industry unless someone informed you.

Types of Products That Use Aborted Fetuses

Products related to fetal material can be broken down into two categories, those that contain fetal tissue, and those that were developed using research on fetal tissue. These products tend to be artificial flavors, cosmetics, and medicines/vaccines.

Food and Drink

Food and beverages do not contain any aborted fetal material but may be tastier because of the nature of the research done in their development.

For example, the American biotech company Senomyx developed chemical additives that can enhance flavor and smell. To do this, they had to produce an army of never-tiring taste testers — that is, flavor receptors engineered from human embryonic kidney cells (HEK-293, a fetal kidney cell line popular in pharmaceutical research).1 These artificial taste buds told developers which products were desirable. Their goal is to produce low-sugar and low-sodium products that taste sweet or salty while actually using less sugar or sodium in the product.

Does your Nestle Coffee-mate Pumpkin Spice creamer taste more like autumn? Does your Maggi bouillon taste just like chicken?

Thank Senomyx.

The laboratory-created artificial enhancers do not have to be tested at length by the FDA because the Senomyx chemical “flavor compounds [were] used in proportions less than one part per million” and were classified as artificial flavors.2

In 2005, Senomyx had contracts to develop products for Kraft Foods, Nestle, Campbell Soup and Coca-Cola.3 However, pro-lifers boycotted PepsiCo when they discovered that it was cooperating with Senomyx to develop a reduced sugar beverage. This boycott caused Kraft-Cadbury Adams LLC and Campbell Soup to cancel their contracts with Senomyx.

In a 2012 letter to Children of God for Life, PepsiCo stated that “Senomyx does not use HEK cells or any other tissues or cell lines derived from human embryos or babies for research performed on behalf of PepsiCo.” However, the corporation began working with Senomyx on two products developed with Sweetmyx 617, a new Senomyx sweet taste modifier.

In 2018, Senomyx merged with Firmenich, a Swiss company that specializes in fragrance and flavors. The merge does not seem to have stopped the use of aborted fetal cells in development. Firmenich acquired Senomyx’s “taste platform,” which included the use of the HEK-293 cells. The Children of God for Life published this report that states that Firmenich uses HEK cells.


The fountain of youth appears to be…babies.

Commercially, it’s known as processed skin proteins (PSP), developed at the University of Lausanne to heal burns and wounds by regenerating traumatized skin. The fetal skin cell line that PSPs are based on was taken from an electively aborted baby whose body was donated to the University.

Neocutis, a San Francisco-based firm, uses PSP in some of their anti-aging skin products. Its website claims that the trademarked PSP “harnesses the power of Human Growth Factors, Interleukins and other Cytokines, to help deliver state-of-the-art skin revitalization.”

Vaccines and Medications

The Vaccine Chart of the Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute (SCPI) lists dozens of vaccines and medical products that contain aborted fetal cell lines. This chart also lists ethical vaccine alternatives when they are available. The morality of using these vaccines developed from fetal cell lines is a complicated issue, though there are ethical guidelines available.

products that use aborted fetuses
Excerpt from SCPI’s vaccine chart.

SCPI is a biomedical research organization headed by Theresa Deisher, who holds a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Physiology from Stanford. Deisher was the first person to identify and patent stem cells from the adult heart. She has worked for industry leaders such as Amgen, Genetech, and Repligen. She has an insider’s understanding of genetic engineering.

SCPI “promotes awareness about the widespread use of fetal human material in drug discovery, development and commercialization.” It reveals that no vaccine product is completely pure: “You will find contaminating DNA and cellular debris from the production cell in your final product. When we switch from using animal cells to using human cells we now have human DNA in our vaccines and our drugs.”5

The problem is four-fold:

  • Aborted baby parts are used for experiments.
  • Cell lines based on aborted babies are used in the production of various products.
  • There is fetal cellular DNA debris in vaccines and medications.
  • We cannot fully remove DNA from vaccines, and we don’t know the effects this may have as this topic has not been sufficiently studied.

Fetal Tissue Research

Much research is currently being done with fetal cells. We can deduce this because there is a lucrative market for the parts of unborn babies. In a series of undercover videos, David Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress exposed Planned Parenthood abortion clinics selling aborted unborn baby parts to investigators posing as medical researchers.

Planned Parenthood successfully sued David Daleiden for these videos, saying they were obtained through illegal means.

The harvesting of organs from aborted unborn babies has been going on without public pushback. Dr. Theresa Deisher attests in her interview with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., that when a heart is taken from an aborted fetus, they extract it while the child is still alive – and without anesthesia. Fresh aborted babies are abundant and are a time-saver compared to the days spent obtaining and preparing animal tissue for laboratory experiments.

Health care researchers working in scientific laboratory.

Much more recently, in 2018, professor emeritus Dr. Stanley Plotkin, lead developer of the Rubella vaccine for the Wistar Institute in the 1960s, was deposed as an expert witness on Vaccinology in a Michigan child custody case. One particularly interesting series of questions regarded the number of aborted babes Plotkin has used in his experiments:

Question: “So this study involved 74 fetuses, correct?”

Plotkin: “Seventy-six.”

Question: “And these fetuses were all three months or older when aborted, correct?”

Plotkin: “Yes.”6

All cells (including those harvested from aborted babies) have a finite capacity to replicate due to cellular aging. This vaccine trial thus required many cell lines in order to achieve its end.

Women’s Lives Are Risked for Profit 

Because fetal tissue can be very valuable, abortion providers have a strong incentive to ensure that the tissue is as intact as possible. Often the tissue is too mutilated to be useful, or is damaged by the chemicals used to kill the child. As a result, many abortionists alter their procedures to help produce more intact samples:

“If we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, we can make it part of the budget that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this, it’s all just a matter of line items.”Melissa Farrel, Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast

“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that. So I’m not gonna crush that part. I’m going to basically crush below. I’m gonna crush above. And I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”Deborah Nucatola, MD, Senior Director of Medical Services, Planned Parenthood Federation of America

This sort of behavior is particularly troubling because altering a procedure for the sake of obtaining fetal tissue puts the mother’s health and life second. In fact, since 1993 it has been expressly illegal to make any alterations to the timing, method, or abortion procedure to obtain fetal tissue. This, however, does not appear to have stopped abortion providers from doing so. 

Failed Fetal Tissue Experiments

While research using fetal tissue has produced some notable products, fetal tissue experiments often fail. At times, they have even killed people.

Perhaps the most common use of fetal tissue has been in transplants to treat various illnesses. The earliest recorded use in this manner was in 1921, when doctors grafted fetal tissue onto a man’s testicles in a failed effort to treat Addisons. Since then, doctors have attempted to use fetal tissue transplants to treat diabetes, with poor success rates.

Many other transplants have been conducted for a variety of conditions. Study results and the survival rates of the patients, however, have been dismal. Though to date hundreds of clinical trials have been tried using various types of fetal transplants, only a few have been successful.

Often, this has been the result of particularly hasty and cavalier research. Doctors have at times proceed with implantation before having even the most basic of understanding of the conditions they were seeking to treat. Nowhere is this more evident than in transplants to Parkinson’s patients in 2001. What was meant to be a miracle cure was anything but. The lucky patients saw little to no improvement, but the unlucky ones suffered through what researchers described as “absolutely devastating” results, “nightmarish” writhing, unintelligible speech, and a loss of even the ability to feed themselves.

Despite the researchers’ firm insistence that the transplants needed to halt, they have continued. And the results have not notably improved. No good evidence of improved results exists, and transplants have frequently been associated with severe increases in involuntary muscle movement. 

In recent years, research on fetal tissue transplants for some conditions, such as Huntington’s, has been slightly more positive. At least in the short term, some patients experienced notable improvement. However, other patients suffered complications, including mass lesions ultimately resulting in death.

The FDA’s Humanized Mice

In recent years, the US Food and Drug Administration has become increasingly focused on experimentation using fetal tissue. Most notably, the FDA has used large sums of taxpayer money to purchase fresh human tissue for use in experiments for humanizing mice. This practice is perhaps somewhat less bizarre than it sounds, as mice with transplanted human tissue are commonly used for research in many different fields.

Nevertheless, after the release of emails between the FDA and procurement groups, many were disturbed by the manner in which fetal remains were discussed. For example, in the emails doctors frequently expressed frustration that bodies were mutilated to the point where they couldn’t tell the sex from their genitals, or that the tissue was ruined by the injections used to kill the child.

Additionally, since buying and selling fetal tissue is prohibited, the FDA’s purchase of human fetal tissue was likely illegal. In fact, in 2018 its contracts were terminated by the government for this reason, suspending any research that required new fetal tissue. In 2021, however, the suspension was lifted, and it appears that the FDA has returned to its purchase and trade of fetal tissue.

A Better Option: Adult Stem Cell Research

Dr. David Vice is Adjunct Professor of Molecular Genetics at the John Paul II Institute and President of the Charlotte Lozier Institute. According to him, adult stem cells are the new “gold standard” for research and, unlike fetal stem cells, have led to actual cures. He writes, “The superiority of adult stem cells in the clinic and the mounting evidence supporting their effectiveness in regeneration and repair make adult stem cells the gold standard of stem cells for patients.”

The success of adult stem cell research is not necessarily unexpected. Even since early research on treating diabetes, adult cell transplants have produced significantly better results than fetal tissue. The hope that fetal stem cells would turn out to be a miracle cure was little more than that, a hope, and one that has been repeatedly disproven.

We should then ask why we are still using embryonic cell lines when adult stem cells have become the Gold Standard. There seems to be little excuse to use aborted babies.

U.S. Policy on Products That Use Aborted Babies

On the 20th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade in 1993, President Bill Clinton signed five abortion-related memoranda, one of which reversed the George H. W. Bush-era moratorium on harvesting new fetal tissue for research. Clinton claimed, “This moratorium has significantly hampered the development of possible treatments for individuals afflicted with serious diseases and disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and leukemia.”

In 2006, there was a major debate among bioethicists as to whether or not the United States would allow the use of new lines of aborted fetal stem cells in research. The medical research community had already decided that the future lay with human-animal hybrids and new aborted fetal cell lines.

According to a statement submitted to the President’s Bioethics Council:

Aborted human DNA in our vaccines is not the end, it is only the beginning, as the creation of human-animal hybrids demonstrates. A new aborted fetal cell line has been developed, called PerC6, and licenses have been taken by over 50 partners, including the NIH and the Walter Reed Army Institute, to use this cell line for new vaccine and biologics production. The goal of the company that created the PerC6 is to become the production cell line for ALL vaccines, therapeutics antibodies, biologic drugs and gene therapy.

In 2019, the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) granted a second 90-day extension to a contract it has with the University of California at San Francisco that requires UCSF to make “humanized mice” for ongoing AIDS research. The human fetal tissue comes from late-term abortions.

CNSNews reported, “according to an estimate it has published on its website, the National Institutes of Health (which is a division of HHS) will spend $95 million this fiscal year alone on research that — like UCSF’s ‘humanized mouse’ contract — uses human fetal tissue.”

In 2019, any NIH intramural research that “…requires the acquisition of human fetal tissue from elective abortions” was banned. This policy also required any outside researchers applying for NIH funds to go through an Ethics Advisory Board review. The Biden administration reversed this policy.


The Bible tells us that “the love of money is the root of all evil” (1 Tim 6:10). Nowhere is this more evident as in the example of the growing industry involving the use of aborted unborn children. Research and development continue into products ranging from various cosmetics to cures for various diseases.

This gruesome trade in human bodies will only continue until enough people stand up and oppose it effectively.

    This was very good information. I am pro life and I knew that they used cells from aborted babies but I never knew what brand carried these cells. It is so sickening to think that this is happening and we are working and praying daily at PP to stop abortions.

  3. Jack Dappen on June 25, 2021 at 6:04 PM

    I have a question? To be clear, food and beverages do not contain any aborted fetal material; however, they may be tastier because of it. (as stated above per Food and Drink). It would SEEM to me that using a cell (Fetal/Fetus) to grow other cells and then using them to enhance the flavor of food and drink would still be the cells fr0m fetal/fetus. It sounds a lot like double talking…The Vaccine (for the CCP virus-covid 19) does not change your DNA but the mRNA in the vaccine is programmed to change your DNA, which is what they are not telling you.

    • Rebecca on September 14, 2021 at 11:16 PM

      From what I understand from the article, the fetal cells are used to test the flavors to see how the cells (tastebuds made from the fetal cells) respond to them. This allows the company to tweak their flavoring accordingly for the desired effect. It doesn’t mean they are taking the fetal cells and putting them in the food (if you read the pdf contained in the article, that’s what it would seems to indicate). I also would like clarification on this. I don’t support either practice, but I have read other articles from other websites that seem to indicate that the cells are in the food. I think it’s incorrect, but in order to defend my point, it makes it seem that I am okay with the other process, which I am not. Any clarification from the one who wrote the article would be helpful, thank you!

      • HLI Staff on September 15, 2021 at 1:44 PM

        Thank you Jack and Rebecca for bringing up this question. Fetal cells are used in the testing process of some food products, not in the products themselves. Of course using aborted fetal tissue for any purpose is gravely immoral. As pro-lifers, it is important for all of us to make sure we are not benefiting from the violence of abortion, or creating a financial incentive for abortions to continue.

        • James Isaac on October 16, 2021 at 11:03 AM

          In view of all the deception and fraud I myself find it hard to trust ANYTHING that comes out of the mouth of this giant corporate entities, PepsiCo, Pfizer, etc. That is, I’m not so sure they don’t use the fetal remains in their products themselves despite stating otherwise. They tell pro-lifers something placatory so that we won’t boycott their products but I am suspicious of how honest they are being.

          Nevertheless I believe following St Paul’s advice to eat what is sold without feeling a need to ask questions is the more sane alternative since we can get into a paranoid rabbit hole pretty quickly otherwise. But if we know better, like in the case of the products you mention, we have a conscientious duty to avoid them.

          Thank you for your good work in exposing the unfruitful works of darkness. God bless

    May MOTHER MARY intercede for humanity to come to our senses to save lives. What does Biden aim to achieve by coercing other countries to embrace the culture of death? In Uganda, our myopic leaders have embraced planned parenthood pressure to offer contraception services to students and non -school going adolescents . With their greed for money surpassing the appetite of a starved pig, coming next is legalization of abortion and export of fetal corpses to the monster companies . Jesus, save our children.

    The drugs given to Trump during his Covid-19 treatments contained at least one that used fetal cells. Apparently he didn’t care. Whatever he signed that apparently was against use of fetal cells in research didn’t apply when it came to his treatment. He’s a fraud.

    • Baileyboo on August 31, 2021 at 12:20 PM

      Hmmmm!!!! Have you spoken directly to President Trump’s doctors to know “precisely” and for a “fact” what he was actually given? I dare say, you have not. Like most Democrats, you want “your thoughts” to become reality for the rest. It doesn’t work that way. You should be smart enough to know that you do not make statements without the proper backup. Stop being ignorant!!!!

      Since you would like to make this political perhaps you would help us understand what would make an American choose to support such a person that embraces an anti American agenda over a person who worked diligently for 4 years to try and reverse the damage that had been done for decades by these greedy leaders who clearly didn’t care about us or our Nation. Are liberals content with corrupt politicians?

  14. Jen on October 8, 2020 at 6:21 PM

    Brother and sisters, I am writing to you here to ask that you pray for us women who had abortions. This is my first public confession. I was a 15 year old living in a single parent feminist home and sexual liberation and female liberty was encouraged. I knew almost nothing of how reproduction worked, had none to talk to and no resources. I became pregnant, (please do not judge me, pray for me/those like me) early in my early relationship with an older boy. We aborted. I was devastated but without direction or Spiritual guidance (I was not yet saved)we repeated this horrible act over and over. I then began another relationship and did the same. In my social cultural environment children were burdens and woman as god of her life ruled… I SEE NOW the horror and sin but I was blind and my heart was more broken than hard. For the record, this is often the case, not rarely. So I write here today to say Jesus Christ has become my Lord and I now have 2 beautiful children, blessed reminders of God’s ability to change lives. Please, please if you have the opportunity-love and pray for these children and women. Jesus and brothers and sisters, Forgive me: pray for and love the blind.

    • HLI Staff on October 15, 2020 at 2:33 PM

      Thank you for being vulnerable and sharing your beautiful story, Jen. You are absolutely right. We do and need to love and pray for women (and their partners) who have had abortions. Your words, I’m sure, will be balm to other women’s hearts.

    Thank you for your kind words and question, Rita. We are a small staff and, unfortunately, do not maintain a list of products that do not use fetal tissue. A quick internet search of Oil of Olay pulls up many products under that brand, from body wash to moisturizer to facial cloths. Not knowing which product you use, I cannot answer your question. However, if you have a question about a specific product, please email our office, hli@hli.org, and we’ll try to find an answer for you.

    I discovered children of god for life in 2005 shortly after giving birth to my second son. At the time, I was in favor of vaccines but immediately decided to do everything possible to avoid the unethical vaccines. Our pediatrician listened and did his best to help. However, when Merck later took some of the ethical options off the market, I began to do further study into vaccines and it led me to believing that they are nothing but a deceit. I took several courses on aromatherapy and studied herbal medicine. There are many easy ways to avoid/heal bacterial/viral/fungal infections. God is healer and he provided us with everything we need to be healthy. I urge people to find alternative solutions to their health issues. One of the positive things about the internet is that you can find so much good information and knowledge. I believe that modern pharmacy is the ‘sorcery’ mentioned in the book of revelations. I have eight kids now and by the grace of God they are very healthy. My eldest who was fully vaccinated has allergies but I accept that as a minor issue when compared to the many children that have lost their lives thanks to severe reactions to a vaccination. Interestingly enough, my sister had a severe reaction to the MMR back in 1988. She suffered temporary paralysis and was hospitalized but later recovered. My Mom was always adamant that it was the MMR that caused it. God bless you all in your search for the truth. Glad to see this finally coming to light. I wrote to all my local Catholic Churches back in 2005 about this issue. Still, they insisted on mandatory vaccines in order to attend catholic school. As a result, I did not send my kids to catholic school.

    I was totally unaware about all this. After reading all these facts now what’s running in my mind is how to warn people globally about all this grievous thing going on. Im from a small country, Nepal. And im sure about it only few people are aware about it here in Nepal. I’ll give my best to share among people all about this going on. Thank you.

    I kind of chuckle (sadly) at the use of the phrase “elective abortion” – I know it refers to the woman choosing abortion (as opposed to a miscarriage or a coerced abortion). I know this is so obvious it doesn’t even warrant saying, but I can’t help think of the baby: that the abortion was not “elective” from the baby’s perspective.

      Very good point, Catherine.

    Spontaneous abortions are not collected, these are natural miscarriages which would not produce “marketable” fetal parts. We are talking of “harvesting” after clinical abortions.

  35. HLI Staff on June 17, 2019 at 1:49 PM

    I regret to say we do not. HLI does not take the position that one should not vaccinate; we feel people should advocate for use of non-fetal vaccines, which are entirely possible to develop. One has to weigh the evils; you should not feel you cannot use a vaccine that would save your life and health as you were not responsible for its development in the manner pharmaceutical companies chose to do so. If you have a choice of vaccines, though, all the better.

    • Gabriel R. on September 11, 2021 at 4:08 PM

      This HLI position doesn’t make sense. If they are using murders to create cures then it is the same as a curse. We ought not eat meat sacrificed to idols. Nor medicines. I can’t see how a actual good could come from things done involving known evils. No sane Jew would take a vaccine or other medicine if they were developed using Nazi derived “material”.

      In addition the entire vaccines keeps illness away position is spurious enough, I think, that it requires much more questioning of their real efficacy because the results can’t be readily seen and we often only presume that they are working because we don’t see bad outcomes that may be have been alleviated for reasons other than a vaccine. The black Plague never had a vaccine developed. Neither for leprosy. Deception and murder in medicine didn’t begin this century after all.

      • Jessica Haden on October 15, 2021 at 9:32 PM

        Amen!! There are exactly zero reputable double-blind studies proving the safety and efficacy of any vaccine. HLI should absolutely advocate against vaccines as there is no evidence they do anything but possibly create health issues in the receiver.

    I have been told that the “human”” synthetic Insulins were made using DNA from fetal tissues and that all the newer analogs use Fetal Stem Cell lines.
    I am facing the possibility of needing insulin due to decreasing autoimmunity destruction of beta cells. These Insulins are not an option if the fetal tissue and stem cell lines are true.
    Please, do you have any documentation of this so I can push docs when time comes to order for importations the animal insulins still used in England and Canada, tho only produced in 2 places in Europe.

    I am just curious, Do you know if these fetus’ that have been aborted by choice or a spontaneous abortion?

    • Maša on June 16, 2021 at 7:18 AM

      I read that is all (planned) abortion, not miscarriage.

  38. HLI Staff on June 4, 2019 at 10:22 AM

    It is an ethical dilemma, especially given that pharmaceutical companies could opt not to use fetal tissue. However, keep in mind that you have not had a role in the creation of those vaccines, and one can argue that not vaccinating also may lead to serious illness or death in children and adults. We also need to pray for an end to the use of any fetal tissue period.

    • Anais Adames on September 16, 2021 at 7:21 PM

      Virus and bacteria have existed alongside humanity since our creation. God Almighty would not need us to take vaccines that have aborted fetal cells in them in order to survive. If you question whether it is morally right, imagine the day you stand in front of God Almighty and tell him “well I needed to take the man made vaccine that contained aborted baby cells in order so that those around me could defy physical death”

    We appreciate your pro-life witness, Maureen – and those who even witness silently through prayer. Keep up the good work.

    I’m 29 teaching English aboard Hispanic Cuban
    From Florida and for the first time I’m my life. I seem to now notice a lot of things I did not before. This world we are living in is disgusting. PSP dead skin cells in my make up!

    • Lucille on September 16, 2021 at 5:43 PM

      Maybe it’s time not to use makeup?

      • Lou Gagon on November 4, 2021 at 6:23 PM

        My husband just asked me if I would just quit using makeup if my makeup was connected to fetal tissue in any way… I said of course.
        He doesn’t think most people would.

  41. Maureen Courtney on May 31, 2019 at 9:20 AM

    It makes me sick!! I just so sick of the thought! I’ve been so blind and ignorant. Now when I try to inform people, they tell me I’m crazy. I tell them to do the research, but they don’t. God will be coming soon! Please consider making car magnets for people to buy. Thanks for your work

      Our Priest always tells us to pray before every meal.
      Make the Sign of the Cross on yourself while praying this.
      ‘+ Bless us O Lord and bless Thy gifts which we are about to receive from Thy bounty to Christ, Our Lord. Amen.+
      If I just want to eat some food or snacks or have some drinks I just make a sign of the Cross on my lips saying In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
      After meal give thanks to him for all the benefit He gave to you.
      FYI this message is for Catholic who welcomes it.
      May God have mercy on us.

    This information should be widely available to the public. It’s understandable why parents won’t allow their children to be vaccinated, even without the threat of various diseases[autism to name one] the public should also be given information on which vaccines do NOT contain aborted fetuses.

    • Sharon Day on August 12, 2021 at 3:14 PM

      I read up on the work done by the person who says that vaccines cause autism. That research was duplicated and the results indicated there is not evidence to support the erroneous information that vaccines cause autism.

      • Lucille on September 16, 2021 at 5:56 PM

        Why do they vaccinate children who are healthy???
        Remember they have an agenda to depopulate ‘useless sheeple.’
        Scripture says 2/3 of world population will die because of our sins so God will use the reprobate to kill the reprobate.
        Our Lady of Fatima said ‘Stop offending God. He is too much offended and if we don’t listen nobody can stop His hand to send us the punishment we deserve.
        (Prophecy of Our Lady of Fatima 1917.)

      • Will Winn on September 21, 2021 at 11:04 AM

        If, and it’s a very big “if” you trust medicine and scientific research to have the ability to consider/observe anything and everything that is needed to know and understand why the incidence of autism has increased twenty fold in just the last 20 years!

    • Jessica Haden on October 15, 2021 at 9:29 PM

      I don’t think any vaccine is necessary or acceptable for the Christian. A vaccine injects foreign matter into a human (or animal) body. There are moral and ethical issues with that, in my opinion. Some believers are opposed to tattoos, but vaccinate their kids. That is not logical.

      Yes but there is hope for all born again Christians: get rapture ready, give your life to JESUS CHRIST today! We’ll soon be our of this filth!

      • Bird on September 20, 2021 at 4:05 PM

        Jesus is coming back for a victorious church, not a whipped church. He said “occupy till I come” and that he who OVERCOMES will rule with Him. If we give up and get ready to go home that’s not overcoming; we got some work to do before we get raptured. The rapture is a reward for a job well done, not a rescue mission.

        • Violet on January 22, 2022 at 12:26 PM

          Your absolutely right.. only one rapture… not 2… I was in that false teaching…for years.. then the LORD SHOWED ME TO BE READY AS I TRUST HIM YO LIVE DURING THIS TIME OF JACAB’S TROUBLE… may the LORD JESUS BE WITH US ALL
