In response to requests for information about the COVID-19 vaccine and the use of aborted fetal cells, PLM has added this chart from the Charlotte Lozier Institute. As the research arm of the Susan B. Anthony List, the Lozier Institute provides more detailed information at its website,

50 states require vaccinations for children entering public schools even though no mandatory federal vaccination laws exist. All 50 states issue medical exemptions, 45 states (excluding MS, WV, CA, ME, NY) permit religious exemptions, and 18 states allow an exemption for philosophical reasons.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends getting 29 doses of 9 vaccines (plus a yearly flu shot after six months old) for kids aged 0 to six. No US federal laws mandate vaccination, but all 50 states require certain vaccinations for children entering public schools. Most states offer medical and religious exemptions; and some states allow philosophical exemptions.

Did You Know? Vaccines Are Made From Abortions | CDC Vaccine Ingredients

Which vaccines contain human protein and DNA?

The information in this table is drawn from vaccine package inserts downloaded from the FDA website. The Vaccine Ingredients Calculator, following the lead of the package inserts, treats each source of human protein and DNA as a distinct ingredient.

Vaccine Chart

Where did the human protein and DNA come from?

There are three main sources of human protein in vaccines: (1) fetal cell lines, (2) human albumin derived from human blood and (3) human albumin genetically engineered from yeast. The human DNA in vaccines comes from the MRC-5 fetal cell line (see below).

Human Protein from Fetal Cell Lines

  • The MRC-5 cell line was developed in September 1966 from lung tissue taken from a 14 week fetus aborted for psychiatric reasons from a 27 year old physically healthy woman.
  • The WI-38 human diploid cell line was derived by L. Hayflick from normal embryonic (3-month gestation) lung tissue of a female.
  • The rubella vaccine currently used in the United States and in most countries was developed after an American researcher at the Wistar Institute cultured rubella virus from a fetus aborted because the mother was infected with rubella. This vaccine is called RA 27/3 because the rubella virus was isolated from the 27th aborted fetus sent to the Wistar Institute in the 1964 rubella outbreak.
  • This article, while incomplete regarding the sources of human protein/DNA and the vaccine in which they are found, attempts to explain why some vaccines are grown in cell cultures that were originally obtained from human fetuses.

A CBS News Investigates article quotes a former senior scientist at a pharmaceutical firm who claims that human tissue is currently used in 23 vaccines; however, we adhere strictly to the vaccine package inserts from the FDA as our ingredient data source and cannot confirm nor deny this claim.

"Due to dwindling capacity for existing aborted fetal cell lines to self-replicate, scientists in China have developed a new aborted fetal cell line, WALVAX 2 that will be used for viral vaccine production. The existing cell lines, MRC-5 and WI-38 are currently used in MMR, Varicella, Hepatitis-A, Shingles, some rabies and some polio vaccines." -Children of God for Life

Vaccine Excipient & Media Summary

Excipients Included in U.S. Vaccines, by Vaccine
This table includes not only vaccine ingredients (e.g., adjuvants and preservatives), but also substances used during the manufacturing process, including vaccine- production media, that are removed from the final product and present only in trace quantities. In addition to the substances listed, most vaccines contain Sodium Chloride (table salt). ...Read More

While many adults could opt out of any of these unethical vaccines, our children must receive injections in order to attend public or private school In Mississippi. Mississippi has no religious or philosophical exemptions available. An increasing number of other states are stripping their religious exemptions, leaving only medical exemptions. Physicians are under increased scrutiny and intimidation from state health departments for issuing medical exemptions. In 2019, Maine joined California, Mississippi and West Virginia as states that do not allow parents to opt out of unethical vaccines for their children on religious or philosophical grounds in order to attend school.
