Vatican condemns vaccines using fetal tissues

The Vatican has condemned the use of vaccines derived from fetal tissue. Although parents and doctors may be morally justified in using such vaccines, when no alternative is available, the Vatican document says that they "have a duty to take recourse to alternatives, putting pressure on political authorities and health systems" to produce morally acceptable alternative treatments. The document continues:

They should use conscientious objection and oppose by all means-– in writing, through 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 fetus.
The Vatican document was produced in response to a query from an American group, Children of God for Life, which had asked for guidance from the Holy See on the use of vaccines derived from aborted babies. The reply came from Bishop Elio Sgreccia, the president of the Pontifical Academy for Life. The bishop noted that this reply had been approved by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
