Article link: Does Acceptance of a COVID-19 Vaccine Represent Endorsement of Abortion? By Megan Best (From the Gospel Coalition Australia)
“Christians should call on the government to provide access to a vaccine that is produced ethically, should such a vaccine become available: no Australian should be forced to choose between being vaccinated against this potentially deadly virus and violating his or her conscience.
“In the absence of an ethical vaccine, Australian Christians should submit to vaccination on grounds of loving their neighbour, and contributing to the public good. Even though an ethical vaccine is preferred, the remoteness of the evil which led to the fetal cell line makes it more important to avoid the evil of contributing to further spread of the COVID-19 virus.
“Regardless of the method of manufacture for the vaccine eventually available to Australians, Christians should continue to call for ethical production of all vaccines and a ban on future scientific research which utilises fetal cells derived from elective abortion in efforts to halt the trade of human remains.”
