COVID-19 Aborted-Derived Cell Lines :: Covid-19 Vaccine "Ethical Profiles"

The information in this chart regarding vaccine manufacturers and abortion-derived cell line usage was originally collated by the Charlotte Lozier Institute, and the "Ethical Profile" designation is provided for comparative purposes by Fr. Tad Pacholczyk. For further explanation of the chart, see this link: Must Catholics Refuse a COVID-19 Vaccine Made with Cell Lines from Abortions?

Samaritanus Bonus

The following is a link to a letter issued by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Samaritanus bonus (The Good Samaritan) which speaks to the care of persons in the critical and terminal phases of life. Further materials will be coming from the USCCB Pro-Life Secretariat this Fall. It is asked that pastors and parishioners are familiar with this document before the additional materials are released. Thank you.

In the Fall, more materials will be available from the USCCB.
