That story, mostly unknown until now, should at the very least require approval of any employee’s application for religious exemptions based on awareness of employer or government vaccination mandates.
On October 6, with the help of Project Veritas (PV) from James O’Keefe, a whistleblower at Pfizer revealed, in leaked internal emails, that company executives, in PV’s words, “tell staff to be secretive about the use of human fetal tissue in laboratory testing of the COVID vaccine.”
The video quotes an email from the company’s senior director of worldwide research admitting that “one or more cell lines with an origin dating back to human fetal tissue have been used in laboratory tests associated with the vaccine program.” The company’s chief science officer specifically identifies the cell line involved as “HEK293T cells … (which) are ultimately derived from an aborted fetus.”
Pfizer’s reluctance to reveal the roots of its vaccine origins seems inexplicable for at least three reasons.

First, in December, the Congregation of the Catholic Church for the Doctrine of the Faith, in light of the degree of perceived emergency presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, indicated that “it is morally acceptable to receive Covid-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and production process.” In non-emergency circumstances, such action would be considered mortally sinful as “cooperation in evil,” but the Congregation indicated that Pope Francis “examined” his work and “ordered its publication.”
Second, research on human fetal tissue, while controversial (as just noted), has been done since the 1930s and is said have “It helped develop vaccines for a wide range of diseases, including polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis A and B, shingles and rabies.”
Third, HEK293, the cell line Pfizer cited, has been around for almost half a century and has been widely used. To cite just one of many examples, cells HEK293 are accredited with “many of the antipsychotic drugs used to treat mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.”
One would think that these three factors, especially the de facto blessing of the Pontiff, would have caused Pfizer promote, or at least strongly advocate, his use of the HEK293 cell line as another shining example of scientific advancement resulting from human fetal tissue research.
Details of HEK293’s brutal origins, and to all appearances until very recently, largely undisclosed, explain the company’s deep malaise. Contrary to nearly half a century of misrepresentation and obfuscation, the creation of HEK293 did NOT stem from “abortion” as common people understand it.
A very recent fact serves to confirm this.
In August, the University of Pittsburgh did make a horrible admission. The Center for Medical Progress, which had to enlist the help of Judicial Watch before the university responded to its Freedom of Information Act request, explained that the school’s GUDMAP program (full name: Genito-Urinary Development Molecular Anatomy Project), with the help of area Planned Parenthood abortion providers, which “allows babies, some of viability age, to be born alive and then kill them by cutting off their kidneys. “
Everyone reading this article should surely agree that once a baby is born alive, killing it should no longer be considered an abortion. Killing a live-born baby is textbook infanticide.
Researchers at Pitt and Planned Parenthood had to resort to this gruesome carnage because it is the best and probably the only way to collect certain usable body parts, particularly the kidneys. Removing viable kidneys requires continuous blood flow, which in turn requires a beating heart, which in turn requires the baby to be alive (or at least almost always) outside the uterus when the kidneys are removed.
The HEK293 line was created in the early 1970s. Months before the University of Pittsburgh admissions, AnnaMaria Cardinalli, an extraordinarily insightful and conscientious writer, detailed the damning truth about its origins in Crisis Magazine in January:
… To obtain a viable embryonic kidney … Children healthy enough who are old enough to have adequately developed kidneys should be removed from the uterus, alive, usually by caesarean section, and their kidneys should be removed. This must be done without anesthesia for the child, which would decrease the viability of the organs.
… The deliberate murder of an unwanted child (a girl, in the case of HEK 293) was carried out in the devious way that it took precisely to obtain her organs for investigation. The removal of her organs was the direct cause of her death, prior to which, she was a living child, outside the womb.
In email correspondence, Ms Cardinalli indicated, based on her own discussions with medical experts and “the proof of News Primer,” that in her opinion, “we are genuinely talking about outright infanticide, not abortion.” In his article, he also indicated that he fears that “Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict did not have this information when they received the vaccines.”
In the decades since HEK293 was created, its two scientists most directly involved, Drs. Alex van der Eb and Franklin Graham, have been vague in explaining the origins of the cell line.
As seen in a draft transcript of a 2006 FDA conference (on page 81), Dr. van der Eb states that “The fetus kidney was obtained in 1972, probably. The precise data is no longer known. The fetus, that I remember, was completely normal. Nothing was happening. The reasons for the abortion were unknown to me. You probably knew it at the time, but all this information was lost. “
Graham He says that “the exact origin of fetal HEK293 cells is unclear. They could come from a miscarriage or an elective abortion. “
Cardinalli, who was unaware of Graham’s possible “miscarriage” speculation when she wrote her article, claimed that “There is no way that a miscarriage could result in the cell line (as the kidneys cannot remain viable beyond the short period in which they must be harvested) “. It is quite telling that Dr. Graham speculated on something that seems clearly impossible.
Regardless of whether any of the scientists’ memory improves, it’s hard to imagine how they could describe their work as anything other than what Cardinalli described and what the statement from the University of Pittsburgh confirmed.
Of course, you are welcome to give it a try.
Meanwhile, it is indefensible for an employer or government entity to try to force people to get punctured or lose their jobs or lose other privileges based on a vaccine whose development originated in infanticide.
