In May, I shared a post by Courtney Charles entitled, "Do Vaccines Violate the Christian Faith?" In the following post, "Calling All Christians" Courtney addresses the use of aborted fetal cell vaccines, and the dilemma that causes for those opposed to abortion, especially in light of the recent approval of CA SB277 which eliminates religious and personal belief exemptions. Inspired by a scripture passage, Courtney's message speaks to both Christians and non-Christians who oppose vaccines due to deeply held religious beliefs. It also reminds me of the scripture passage that "nudged" me to start Vaccine Choice Prayer Community. Read about that here.
Note: There is much misinformation about the Vatican and the use of aborted fetal cell vaccines. For accurate information, please visit Children of God for Life; and for further clarification of the "right of conscience" please read this May 6, 2015 letter sent to California lawmakers by Children of God for Life.
Do Vaccines Violate the Christian Faith?
by Courtney Charles
Continuing along the same lines as my post "Aborted Fetal Cell Vaccines & Religious Beliefs," below is a beautifully written, well referenced article by Courtney Charles from her website Alkaline Mom's Alabaster Living. It comes at a time when Christians and non-christians are facing the very real possibility that they will have to violate their deeply held religious beliefs in exchange for education, employment, medical care and more. Thank you Courtney, for permission to share your post!
