    It is no accident that a good deal of vaccine research first and foremost seeks out aborted children as body donors. Umbilical cords, adult stem cells, and other suitable sources can be used in these vaccines. But hatred for God and sheer ignorance permeate the academy, and scientists are often linked to the academy in one way or other. As expected, the cited article goes out of its way to excuse Catholics from personal guilt if they choose to accept vaccines obtained through immoral means.
