So much confusion. So much disinformation on COVID-19 vaccination.
Is there anyone who can explain in basic terms the differences between fetal cells and fetal cell 'lines'? More so than my ninth grade memory in Mr. Jones' Biology class and later my brief, very brief, Anatomy course in college will allow? I don't want to contribute to all the confusion already out there.
From all the reading I've come across, and I've read quite a lot, no mRNA COVID-19 vaccines contain aborted fetal cells.
And no fetal cell lines were used to produce or manufacture the vaccine. There are no fetal cells or fetal cell lines inside the injections.
Fetal cell from the 1970s and1980s were cloned. From which fetal cell lines were developed and used to test 'efficacy' of a COVID-19 vaccine. These 'cloned' cell lines have been used in a variety of medical studies, however, and not just recently to test for an effective COVID-19 vaccine. Even in the development of Regeneron treatment it was confirmed in at least one experiment, fetal cell line HEK293T was used in the testing process.
The cloning of cells and cancer cell lines, grown in a lab nicknamed Hela cells, taken from the woman for which they're named and who died of a rare form of cervical cancer in 1951 are still used today. Today they are used to study toxins, drugs, hormones and viruses on the growth of cancer cells without having to experiment on humans. Those HeLa cell lines have also been used to test the effects of radiation and poisons to study the human genome and learn more about how viruses work. They also played a role in the development of the polio vaccine. All this, according to John Hopkins.
There was a rubella pandemic in the 1960s that resulted in over 12.5 million reported cases in the U.S., 2,000 cases of encephalitis, 11,250 fetal deaths, 2,100 neonatal deaths, 20,000 children born with congenital rubella syndrome that resulted in blindness, deafness and heart diseases. According to nih. That led to the creation of a rubella vaccine that significantly reduced rubella infections and also decreased the number of infants born with congenital rubella syndrome. Fetal cell line tissues were used in the testing and development of the rubella vaccine. When you think of Chicken Pox vaccine. Shingles. And a host of other illnesses, viruses, infections, age related illness such as dementia, using fetal and other cell lines aren't at all new. The cloning of cells and cells lines used in studies, testing and development are not the same as using actual cells taken directly from a person or aborted fetus. They are cloned then grown in labs.
The confusing, disinformation is mind-boggling and disturbing. Especially, when you see otherwise educated people buying into and spreading the disinformation.
