Catholic Duty to Resist COVID Vaccine: “Babies Alive when Researchers Extracted Tissue" Acker Says

Alexandra Clark | The Daily Knight

Today, the debate of whether it is a sin to take the Covid-19 vaccine is becoming a pivotal one. Many are having to choose whether to toe-the-line with governmental demands and the demands from clergy in the Catholic Church, who are urging and agreeing to make it mandatory to take the vaccine; or to stand firm and resist taking the vaccine based on its connection to the intrinsic evil of abortion, as well as many other health issues. Furthermore, there is a false moral push for people to take the vaccine on the grounds that they will not only protect themselves, but will save other lives from COVID, which recent scientific studies do not support, (https://img1.wsimg.com/blobby/go/99d35b02-a5cb-41e6-ad80-a070f8a5ee17/JSP_PP.pdf )


The push from the USCCB and bishops across the world to support this experimental COVID vaccine, despite it being tainted with cells from aborted babies, is shocking to many souls. In the least, many are confused on the situation.


Pamala Acker is a biologist and author of the recently released (and extremely informative) book Vaccination: A Catholic Perspective. In the book, she reveals precisely how Catholics should be thinking about vaccines. Aker has revealed a very disturbing fact that in the harvesting of cells used for vaccines, they are extracted not from “simple abortion” but that:


“They will actually deliver these babies via cesarean section. The babies are still alive when the researchers start extracting the tissue; to the point where their heart is still beating, and they’re generally not given any anesthetic, because that would disrupt the cells that the researchers are trying to extract. So, they’re removing this tissue, all the while the baby is alive and in extreme amounts of pain. So, this makes it even more sadistic.”

Some claim that taking the vaccine, regardless of it being tainted with aborted baby cells, either through testing or development, is justifiable because of the “extreme danger” of COVID-19. To argue that the "good intention" outweighs the intrinsic evil, some claim that more lives would be saved by the vaccine and that there is no other alternative.


On the contrary, using that logic would be similar to saying that, "giving just a pitch of incense to the Roman gods, would be okay, if lives would be saved in the process." Yet, that is not what the early Christians did. They refused to give a measly pinch of incense to the fake gods, loosing their lives as a consequence. These early Christians and martyrs understood that obeying God’s Commandments was more important that saving their lives, because in their obedience to God they were procuring their eternal life.


Today, that moral line and absolute truth seems to have been blurred to the point that has caused massive confusion among the faithful. Nevertheless, we must ask ourselves these questions:

Where do we draw the line?

Is killing still a sin?

Is it okay for us to ever be endorsing or using abortion for any means?

Is it ever good to have any collaboration with the fruits of abortion?


Our Faith and common sense clearly tells us the answers to these questions. The health of the body is not the highest and absolute value. Obedience to Divine Law and the eternal salvation of souls must be given primacy, thus determining murder as intrinsically evil in all cases.


Let us be clear about the truth of abortion. Abortion is murder and kills an innocent life.


The 5th Commandment of God is: Thou Shalt not Kill.


The end does not justify the means. As St. Thomas Aquinas states: "An evil action cannot be justified by reference to a good intention" (cf. St. Thomas Aquinas, Dec. praec. 6).


Moreover, the Catholic Church teaches in the Catechism that:


CCC 1755: A morally good act requires the goodness of the object, of the end, and of the circumstances together. An evil end corrupts the action, even if the object is good in itself


CCC 2258: "Human life is sacred because from its beginning it involves the creative action of God and it remains for ever in a special relationship with the Creator, who is its sole end. God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end: no one can under any circumstance claim for himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being."


CCC 2272: Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life.


More specifically, Justin Haggerty from The Daily Knight adds:


CCC 1750: The morality of human acts depends on:

- the object chosen;

- the end in view or the intention;

- the circumstances of the action.


The object, the intention, and the circumstances make up the "sources," or constitutive elements, of the morality of human acts.


CCC 1751: The object chosen is a good toward which the will deliberately directs itself. It is the matter of a human act. The object chosen morally specifies the act of the will, insofar as reason recognizes and judges it to be or not to be in conformity with the true good. Objective norms of morality express the rational order of good and evil, attested to by conscience.


CCC 1753: A good intention (for example, that of helping one's neighbor) does not make behavior that is intrinsically disordered, such as lying and calumny, good or just. The end does not justify the means. Thus the condemnation of an innocent person cannot be justified as a legitimate means of saving the nation. On the other hand, an added bad intention (such as vainglory) makes an act evil that, in and of itself, can be good (such as almsgiving). (Cf. Mt 6:24.)


CCC 1754: The circumstances, including the consequences, are secondary elements of a moral act. They contribute to increasing or diminishing the moral goodness or evil of human acts (for example, the amount of a theft). They can also diminish or increase the agent's responsibility (such as acting out of a fear of death). Circumstances of themselves cannot change the moral quality of acts themselves; they can make neither good nor right an action that is in itself evil.


"We can conclude, by the teachings of the Church, that the object and the intention must be pure and absent of intrinsic evil to objectively determine the good morality of a human act," Haggerty asserts. "In all cases, the circumstances of the act are subordinate to the first two 'sources.'"


The vaccine is a war on life, a war on truth, and a war on the family. This issue about the vaccine is more than just a debate, it is a matter of life and death.


As the great Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano stated:

“ this battle for the family is the defense of life from conception to natural death. The crime of abortion, which has claimed millions of innocent victims and that cries out for vengeance from heaven, is today considered as a normal health service, and just in recent days the Italian government has authorized the more widespread use of the abortion pill, encouraging an abominable crime…”


Bishop Schneider, in agreeance with Archbishop Vigano, asserted that the vaccine in a way is a mark of the beast, claiming that:

"one of the greatest evils of mankind, the cruel genocide of unborn. We will be marked. We will receive a sign in our body which will in any way and some way demonstrate that we are connected to this greatest, one of the greatest evils…..Because to accept in some way the fruits of the abortion and all of these horrible testing and production of cell lines, it is really horrible, and then when all the people of the earth will have this sign in their body, which is a sign of death, ultimately. Because without the first act of death, of murdering of this child, they would not have been this mark on your body with this vaccine.”


According to the US Bishops, although all the three vaccines produced by Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca have some connection to cell lines descending from aborted fetuses, their use and implementation in society would be morally justifiable. Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) confirmed: “the lack of available alternative vaccines, and the fact that the connection between an abortion that occurred decades ago and receiving a vaccine produced today is remote, inoculation with the new COVID-19 vaccines in these circumstances can be morally justified."


If we go back to April 2020, Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, TX projected this sad fact:

"Many Christians in our society, Protestant, Orthodox and Catholic alike, are too willing to allow an unborn child to be killed simply because they believe the unborn child’s death will somehow improve their lives….Just because the crime of abortion is considered legal in our nation does not mean it is morally permissible to use the dead bodies of these children to cure a global pandemic. Emphatically, this practice is evil.”


Whereas on the other side: the Archbishop of San Antonio said to his parishioners: ‘We need to be vaccinated.’

Pope Francis himself publicly called on “everyone” to take the COVID vaccine, ordering that “it must be done.”


Bishop Schneider, in a new video interview with LifeSiteNews, talks in depth about the confusion within the Church and differentiates it with what the Church has always taught the faithful:

Returning to the statement by Archbishop Vigano:


“When we consider the new orientation of the Pontifical Academy for Life (whose presidency has been entrusted to a person who is well-known for having shown the best of himself when he was bishop of Terni), we cannot expect any condemnation of those who use fetal tissue from voluntarily aborted children. It’s present members hope for mass vaccination and the universal brotherhood of the New World Order, contradicting previous pronouncements of the same Pontifical Academy.[1] In recent days the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales[2] has entered this anomalous wave. On the one hand it recognizes that “The Church is opposed to the production of vaccines using tissue derived from aborted {murdered} fetuses, and we acknowledge the distress many Catholics experience when faced with a choice of not vaccinating their child or seeming to be complicit in abortion,” but it then affirms, in very grave contradiction with the stated unchanging principles of Catholic morality,[3] that “the Church teaches that the paramount importance of the health of a child and other vulnerable persons could permit parents to use a vaccine which was in the past developed {not so} using these diploid cell lines.”


This statement lacks any doctrinal authority and instead aligns itself with the dominant ideology promoted by the WHO, its principal sponsor Bill Gates, and pharmaceutical companies.


From a moral point of view, for every Catholic who intends to remain faithful to his or her Baptism, it is absolutely inadmissible to accept a vaccination that utilizes material {the body} coming from human fetuses in its process of production. This has also been restated authoritatively by the Bishop Strickland in his April 27 Pastoral Letter[4] and in his August 1 tweet.[5]”


Five COVID vaccines are connected to abortion:

1. Pfizer vaccine – connected to abortion

2. Moderna vaccine – connected to abortion

3. Oxford/AstraZeneca – connected to abortion

4. Johnson and Johnson/ Janssen – connected to abortion

5. Sanofi Pasteur & Translate Bio – connected to abortion

Another good resource for information regarding vaccines is LifeSiteNews Vaccine page here: https://lifesite.kartra.com/page/vaccinations


In conclusion, it is immoral and a sin to take the experimental COVID vaccines that we know have a connection to the intrinsic evil of abortion. Furthermore, it is a sin to be complicit in that evil act of killing an innocent life, and it is our right to refuse and even a Catholic duty to NOT have any collaboration with that evil.


From a medical vantage point, the vaccines were rushed through clinical trials; much is unknown about the potential side affects and genetic adjustments, which have already caused many recipients to have extreme reactions. In fact, there is a growing list of people who are dying across the United States after taking the vaccine.


While abortion isn’t the only issue of concern with the vaccine, it is certainly the greatest of the concerns. Others have discovered that the HIV virus is in some of the COVID vaccines, others say that there is high risk of infertility for taking the vaccine, a connection back to Bill Gates who is a Eugenicist, who supports the UN's population control initiatives.


"Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them." ~ Pope St. Felix III


"If the faith is in imminent peril, prelates ought to be accused by their subjects, even in public." ~St. Thomas Aquinas {Amen, Amen!}
