Question for Pro-Lifers
110
Thu, 02-26-2009 - 2:05pm

I'd like to know how pro-lifers feel about vaccinations. Which of you vaccinate? Which of you don't? Why or why not?

I'm asking here instead of the Vaccine Debate Board because of the number of people here I'm certain are pro-life and I'm looking for some answers and correlations.

Thanks

My understanding is that vegetarians eat eggs and dairy, while vegans do not.


You don't have to be vegan or vegetarian to oppose animal testing.

OK but they are still not asking women to abort or anything to get new lines correct?

I'm glad modern medicine has saved the lives of you and yours. Without details there's nothing more I can say. I was careful to use the word "most" in my statement. I'm fully aware of lives that are saved by medical intervention. I'm also fully aware of useless medicines and overmedication and overdiagnosis and the likes. But you're right...to each his own. Remember, there's a difference between "medical advances" and "medication".

Honestly, the animal stuff isn't what turns me off to vaccines but I've seen the injection/ingestion debate go into through most of the ingredients. I was basically spitballing one possibility for the reason someone ingests one thing but objects to injecting it. No matter the amount, there is a difference.

I absolutely agree. I am in no way shape or form a vegan/vegetarian. I do, however, oppose animal testing and cruelty to animals. I know there are many levels of opinions on all these things. It's the same as those who only oppose a few vaccines (selective vaccinations) or those who only oppose third trimester abortions, etc.

No, sorry. I have met many like me who don't oppose vaccines for any religious reasons or vegan reasons or pl reasons or because their favorite celebrity opposes them but ONLY because of their own research. There are many reasons people choose to not vaccinate. That's all I was saying. I'm really just trying to get more insight into those reasons and if other beliefs lead to those reasons.

Thanks for this answer. This is the kind of answers I was hoping for. Honest and complete and sarcasm free. Thanks!

I understand people's beliefs sometimes must be pitted against each other and weighed on a risk/benefit analysis. It's starting to seem that in lots of cases, the want to vaccinate seems to outweigh any other beliefs. I'm trying to understand those lines of thinking.

No, the cell lines are from long ago abortions.

Hypothetically, if the abortions were recent (not for that sole purpose but recent nonetheless) would it affect your decision or is it still "lemonade out of lemons"?
