Catholic Archdiocese accused J&J vaccine of being immoral over links to abortion cells

DUBLIN: American Archdiocese warns Catholics against Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. The Archdiocese of New Orleans in the US accused the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine as immoral.

The cell line from abortion is used in the development, production and testing of the vaccine. Therefore, the Archdiocese suggests that the use of this immoral vaccine requires a moral compromise.

The archdiocese came under fire after it was recommended by a panel of experts from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve the vaccine.

The vaccine was approved by the Vatican and Pope Francis. Shrines host some vaccination centers, so the Archdiocese’s position is likely to adversely affect single-dose vaccine supply in New Orleans.

The Archdiocese of New Orleans says it agrees with the Vatican’s approval of Moderna and Pfizer vaccines. They use cloned stem cells only for testing. The archdiocese said it was opposed to J&J because of the use of these cells in vaccine development.

At the end of last year, the Vatican agreed that vaccines produced with such cells were permissible. But the Archdiocese of New Orleans disagrees. The Archdiocese recommends that people should take the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines and that the J&J vaccine should be abandoned.
