NACN-USA Urges the FDA to Find Alternatives to Immunizations Grown in Aborted Fetal Cells

While alternative vaccines exist in the United States for polio, rabies and shingles, there are no ethically-produced alternatives for the Hepatitis A, MMR and Varivax vaccines. Specififcally, the rubella portion of the MMR uses RA27/3 virus which was cultivated on the WI-38 cell line, both of which involved nearly 100 elective abortions in the research and development. Likewise, the Varivax (chickenpox) vaccine also uses both WI-38 and yet another aborted fetal cell line, MRC-5, which was developed in the UK and is also used in Hepatitis-A.” (Excerpt from FDA letter below)
