Merck to focus on 'non-ethical' vaccines

Charlie Butts and Marty Cooper - OneNewsNow - 1/13/2009

Pharmaceutical giant Merck has decided to produce vaccines for measles, mumps, and rubella that only use cells from aborted babies.

According to, Merck & Co., Inc. has halted production of its monovalent vaccines, which only accounts for two percent of the total sales but are also important to pro-lifers because they are made from animal cells instead of aborted baby cells. The company announced it will focus instead on MMR11 vaccines, which account for 98 percent of the sales but are produced from "aborted fetal cell lines."
