Note: We ran this post in June of 2016. Today is "Sanctity of Human Life Sunday":
On January 13, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. (January 22, 1973, was the day the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand in all 50 states.) Churches around the United States use the day to celebrate God's gift of life, commemorate the many lives lost to abortion, and commit themselves to protecting human life at every stage. Churches continue to recognize the third Sunday in January as Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. In 2020, the date will be January 19.

I’m sure many of our readers are aware of the vaccine ingredient I’ll mention in today’s post. Others have already written about the topic and covered the facts well. Living Whole and Children of God for Life, for example, have bravely spoken up about the use of aborted fetal cell lines in vaccine production. I applaud them. I wish I could applaud more pro-life groups, but I hardly see them speak up about the topic.
I say that I’m a hardcore Catholic. But even I’ve yet to take on this subject. If I were serious about it, I’d have contacted the leaders in my Church about it. Some leaders have spoken, but their very broad statement seems more of a CYA than anything (and I’m not referring to Catholic Youth Association if you get my drift).
For whatever reason, “the greater good” that vaccines supposedly benefit seems to trump the act of abortion and the use of this ingredient is justified. It shouldn’t be. But it is. I think that needs to change. So here goes…
I shared this link of vaccine ingredients in a post a few weeks ago. I’m sharing the link again in today’s post. I’d like to do that because some of the ingredients that are listed have been on my mind for a few days now. They’ve actually been on my mind for years, but I haven’t written specifically about them yet.
Someone highlighted the use of aborted fetal tissue use in a screenshot.
Sitting here reading those highlighted words makes my stomach turn.
