San Jose, good point there. I would say this is an in-house issue. The world does not care that cells from an aborted baby's retina are used to create a cell line for developing vaccines. (or whatever other organ) MRC-5 cell line would've originally come from an unborn baby with a name, as would have been WI-38, RA 273, etc.

Children of God for life has been fighting to educate the public on the uses of the aborted baby industry. http://www.cogforlife.org/fetalvaccines.htm Many vaccines have been made with aborted baby fetal cell lines. Here's their reference list so you can compare which one is aborted fetal cell based or not: http://www.cogforlife.org/fetalvaccines.htm a virus is not a stand alone organism, it needs a host. To develop a vaccine, a host infected animal cell must be used. sometimes it is monkey, or aborted fetal cell, etc. Here's a thoughtful article: http://www.silentvoices.org/VaccinesAbortedFetuses.html
When you mention it like that, we're not so far removed from the dispicable Nazi practice of using remains (hair, teeth, etc.) of exterminated Jews during WWII. Of course the slightest mention of this correlation to anyone in our present, so-called "enlightened" liberal society will surely infuriate them.
