WASHINGTON, November 8, 2002 ( – Children of God for Life, a pro-life group specializing in information on vaccine tainted with the use of aborted foetal tissue, is advocating an immediate boycott of all Merck products – not just aborted foetal tissue vaccines.

The boycott of Merck is part of the group’s ongoing Campaign for Ethical Vaccines. Children of God for Life says of Merck, “Since vaccines make up less than 5% of their revenues, our analysts have suggested an effective means of forcing a change in foetal tissue vaccines would be to boycott the products that most heavily impact the company’s financials,” said .  A chart listing Merck’s products and their competitors is available at:
