COVID VACCINES FOR PRO-LIFE CHRISTIANS
As Christians, it's important to make sure all of our decisions align with our conviction to protect life—both the born and unborn.
UNDERSTANDING THE ETHICS OF VACCINE PRODUCTION
Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines do not contain any aborted fetal cells.
And leading Pro-Life Christian leaders like the Catholic Bishops, SBC's Ethics Commission, and other leading pastors have gone on to say that if those vaccines are not available, Pro-Life Christians should take the Johnson & Johnson vaccine--even though it used technology developed from fetal stem cells--as the best choice to protect life and love your neighbor.
WHAT FAITH LEADERS ARE SAYING ABOUT VACCINES
Pope Francis has called the COVID-19 vaccine ethical and necessary.
“I believe that ethically everyone should take the vaccine,” the Pope said in an interview. “It is an ethical choice because you are gambling with your health, with your life, but you are also gambling with the lives of others.
Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict were both vaccinated at the Vatican.
REV. RUSSELL MOORE
President of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
Russell Moore says that “As people committed to the dignity and sanctity of human life” we should always stand up for life, both the born and unborn.
He encourages other Pro-Life believers to vaccinate, saying “Taking the COVID vaccine is morally right.”
Sadly, over 100 million Americans have been infected by COVID-19, and over 1 million Americans have died from the disease.
But American science has led the way in stopping this deadly disease.
And Americans are leading the world in total vaccinations, with over two-thirds of all Americans having chosen to get vaccinated.
LEADING THE WAY IN PROTECTING LIFE
American vaccines are the safest and most effective.
81% of Americans have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
70% of Americans are considered fully vaccinated.
