Covid-19: The Evangelical Protestant Committee for Human Dignity takes a stand on vaccines

The Evangelical Protestant Committee for Human Dignity (CPDH) spoke in a press release about vaccines intended to fight Covid-19. It points to the use of cell lines of fetal origin used for the design of certain vaccines.

Dyears one communicated published Tuesday, March 9, the Evangelical Protestant Committee for Human Dignity ”(CPDH) has taken a position on the issue of vaccines to fight against Covid-19. The fact that vaccines use cell line cultures of fetal origin from an abortion performed in the 70s and 80s poses a real ethical question for some evangelical Christians.

Today in France, we do not have the choice of the vaccine recalls the CPDH, it is indeed “the available stocks” and the “decisions of the government which are essential”. If the committee considers that "not all vaccines are equal" from an ethical point of view, he recommends to "the most vulnerable people to be vaccinated, whatever the vaccine".

In this context, the CPDH proposes to discover a reflection on the “degree of ethical responsibility” and the “choice of the lesser evil, when necessary” of Dr Michel Cambrelin on this subject which echoes their position. The Committee specifies that accepting these vaccines "in no way constitutes approval of Voluntary Pregnancy Interruptions and will not encourage them".

The organization believes, however, that it would be "desirable for citizens to be able to choose the vaccine, and thus position themselves on an ethics that will not encourage scientific research using cell lines of fetal origin."
