WASHINGTON, May 25, 2001 (LSN.ca) – A new combined vaccine, TWINRIX¨, against both Hepatitis-A and B has been developed and is being recommended for children aged 1 to 18 years. The vaccine, by Glaxo SmithKline, however is tainted with the specter of abortion since it uses the Hepatitis-A vaccine, which was cultivated on aborted fetal tissue. The pro-life group Children of God for Life, which specializes in factual documentation of vaccines from abortion, notes that the same situation exists for the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine where Rubella is the “tainted” ingredient in the combo vaccine.
The pro-life group notes that while some vaccines for Polio, Rubella, Rabies are tainted by abortion, there are other vaccines against these diseases which did not use aborted babies for their manufacture. There is no available ethical alternative however for the chicken pox vaccine.
