Judge Thomas cites the alleged claim that the Covid vaccine is made of cells from “aborted children.”

With sharp words ObjectionOn Thursday, Judge Clarence Thomas expressed support for the alleged allegations that all Covid vaccines are made of cells from “aborted children.”

His dissenting opinion was decided by the Supreme Court as follows. Do not file legal objections by New York healthcare professionals Those who opposed the state’s vaccine obligations for religious reasons.

Thomas quotes the plaintiff, saying that healthcare professionals are “for religious reasons against all available COVID-19 vaccines because they were developed using cell lines derived from aborted children” to the state’s vaccine obligations. I wrote that I was “opposed”.

Pfizer and Moderna used fetal cell lines Early Covid vaccine development To test the effectiveness of their prescriptions, as other vaccines had in the past. The fetal tissue used in these processes came from a selective miscarriage that occurred decades ago. However, since the cells have been replicated many times, none of the original tissues have been involved in the production of the latest vaccines.

Therefore, the Covid vaccine is not manufactured using fetal cell lines and does not contain aborted cells.

Rather, the vaccine contains messenger RNA. It is a genetic substance that directs cells to make proteins and trains the immune system to fight the coronavirus. They also contain fatty substances called lipids that help RNA cross cell membranes, salts, sugar, and some substances that help stabilize other components.

In defending the vaccine’s mission, a New York lawyer said that laboratory-grown stem cells derived from cells taken from the fetus nearly 50 years ago were also used to test the rubella vaccine.

Thomas wrote for himself and three opponents, Judge Samuel Alito and Judge Neil Gorsuch, but nevertheless quoted the uncovered allegations.

The majority of judges declined Thursday to accept the legal challenges posed by health care workers who oppose the state’s vaccine obligations for religious reasons.

When the requirement is first imposed Last august We have granted exceptions based on medical or religious objections as a way to prevent the spread of the latest Covid variants. However, the religious exemption was later removed. New York Governor Kathy Hokul, a Democrat and Roman Catholic, is unaware of “authorized religious objections from organized religions,” and religious leaders, including the Pope, vaccinated people. He said he was recommending it.

Sixteen health care workers subsequently complained of religious dissent because the fetal cell line was involved in the testing, development, or production of the Covid vaccine. They said the mission violated their religious freedom because it allowed other unvaccinated people to continue working.

Thomas, along with Arito and Gorsuch, wrote on Thursday that the court should have filed a proceeding. Thomas wrote that confusion remained about orders like New York that did not provide religious exemptions, and the court should have filed a proceeding now to avoid similar confusion in the future.

A state lawyer said Covid’s mission is similar to the long-standing rule that requires health care workers to be vaccinated against measles and rubella. These requirements also allow exemptions only for medical reasons. “The existence of a single limited medical exemption for vaccination requirements does not require the state to provide a full religious exemption from vaccination,” they said in a written submission.
