Vatican on Vaccines
Holy Little Saint
We will never forget
Children of God for Life partners with
AVM Biotechnology and Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute
(A Match Made in Heaven!)
A Faith Based Biotech Company? One that is motivated by morals, not money? Who would believe it could ever happen!
In the fall of 1999, Children of God for Life began the Campaign for Ethical Vaccines in an effort to put an end to the use of aborted fetal cell lines in vaccines and medical products. We were laughed at by some, chastised by others and probably hated by a few. Despite the obvious problem even some of our fellow pro-lifers were skeptical. They said it couldn’t be done. They told us we were wasting our time – the pharmaceutical industry would not change, would never listen. But Children of God for Life did listen – to the heartfelt anguish of thousands who saw the grave necessity to bring about changes in the industry – to stop the exploitation of our unborn for profit – to allow families and physicians a moral choice in protecting their families, without compromising their pro-life and religious convictions. We listened, we worked tirelessly around the clock and we waited patiently for our efforts to bear fruit. And we came to understand that the more you complain the longer God lets you live! And oh yes, we complained loudly – to God – to every pro-life group, to leaders of all faiths, to members of the House and Senate in DC and to the pharmaceutical industry especially!
The solution would slowly begin to emerge in June 2005. In a response to our plea for help for families who were being persecuted for refusing to use these vaccines the Vatican issued an important eight page document. In no uncertain terms, they instructed the faithful:
“Therefore, doctors and fathers of families have a duty to take recourse to alternative vaccines (if they exist), putting pressure on the political authorities and health systems so that other vaccines without moral problems become available. They should take recourse, if necessary, to the use of conscientious objection with regard to the use of vaccines produced by means of cell lines of aborted human foetal origin. Equally, they should oppose by all means (in writing, through the various associations, mass media, etc.) the vaccines which do not yet have morally acceptable alternatives, creating pressure so that alternative vaccines are prepared, which are not connected with the abortion of a human foetus, and requesting rigorous legal control of the pharmaceutical industry producers.” (Moral Reflections On Vaccines Prepared From Cells Derived From Aborted Human Foetuses, Pontifical Academy for Life)
In May 2006, the Catholic Medical Association would be the first to faithfully respond with their own formal resolution, stating unequivocally that alternatives must be used. Not “could” or “should”, but MUST be used. Truly, they set the high standard for all Catholic and Christian physicians. The gauntlet was dropped, the stage was set and the challenge lay waiting to be accepted.
In December 2007 meetings, Children of God for Life’s and millions of parents’ long-awaited hopes were about to be realized by the commitment of AVM Biotechnology. Founded by Research and Development Director, Dr. Theresa Deisher, the company is fully dedicated to the discovery, development, and commercialization of safe, effective, affordable, and ethical human therapeutics and vaccines that are not in any way tested or developed using immoral sources. Dr Deisher is an internationally renowned expert in the field of adult stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine. With 17 years experience in scientific and corporate leadership positions involving research, she also has 23 patents issued in her name. She has published numerous scientific manuscripts and is a frequent invited lecturer and guest speaker in the area of stem cell technology and regenerative medicine. In her new role at AVM and their non-profit Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute (SCPI) the goal is to eventually provide moral alternatives for every single medical product that uses aborted fetal or embryonic cell lines.
Further, SCPI will provide certification on medical products that are not screened, evaluated, tested or produced using immoral sources. Sort of like the old Good Housekeeping Seal – but instead consumers will have a Pro-Life-Certified seal!
How can one adequately describe what this means to millions of pro-life families, physicians, pharmacists, missionaries, members of the military, clergy, educators and fellow researchers who will soon have a REAL choice?
Two words: PRAISE GOD! For through Him all things are possible.
