Medicines and Vaccines Free from or Tainted with Aborted Fetal Cells

  • II Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

As medical tyranny consumes the globe, deceitful practices are robbing souls of their God-given freedom to religious exemptions. Increasingly, places of employment are mandating invasive questionnaires that force their employees to sign deceptive forms containing false lists of medicines that are supposedly connected with aborted-fetal cells.

Lest God’s people become sheep led astray and to counter such deception, we desire to present an updated list of medications and vaccines that either are free from aborted-fetal cell lines or tainted with aborted-fetal cell lines.

  • -Before we get started, it is important to know the difference between aborted-fetal testing used in the development of a drug or vaccine, and aborted-fetal testing done after the drug or vaccine has been completed by scientists who wanted to understand how the drug or vaccine worked.
  • For example, if Bob develops XYZ medicine with aborted-fetal cells, then Bob is evil and XYZ medicine is morally tainted.
  • If Bob goes to Walmart and buys Tylenol, takes it home to his lab, and uses it to experiment on murdered baby cells, then that makes Bob evil but that does not make Tylenol evil anymore than tables, lab coats, and trays (also used by Bob) would be forevermore evil. Bob abused a legitimate tool. That says a lot about Bob but nothing about the tools he misused.
  • -Also of note: Many common, every day medicines were on the market before aborted fetal cell research ever began to be developed in the 1960’s and used in the 1970’s.


Abortion Free Medicines (before the use of aborted-fetal cells):

Acetaminophen (See Tylenol)

Advil (See Ibuprofen)

Amoxicillin was discovered in 1958 which is before aborted-fetal cell use in the 1970’s.

Aspirin, discovered in 1853, began circulating in the United States in 1899, although the key ingredients in aspirin have been used for thousands of years. Modern aspirin was formulated by Bayer in 1897. All of this obviously is before 1960’s aborted-fetal cell development let alone their use.

Benadryl (See Diphenhydramine)

Bismuth subsalicylate (See PeptoBismol)

Colace (See Docusate sodium)

Dextromethorphan (Dimetapp, Robitussin) was successfully tested in 1954 and marketed in 1958.

Dimetapp (See Dextromethorphan)

Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) was discovered in 1943 and first marketed in 1946.

Docusate sodium (Colace, DulcoEase) was patented in 1937.

DulcoEase (See Docusate sodium)

Guaifenesin (Mucinex) was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1952.

Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) came into recent public consciousness as an anti-COVID drug early in the lockdowns, although HCQ has been around for a few decades. Hydroxychloroquine is an anti-malarial medication and was first approved by the U.S. in 1955. There was a 2016 study by American Pharmacists Association that performed experiments using the aborted-fetal cell line HEK-293 to investigate if HCQ and chloroquine use led to sight problems. These were obviously performed a few decades after HCQ was already invented, and hydroxychloroquine, which also goes by the brand name Plaquenil, was obviously created a number of years before aborted-fetal cell research and development.

Ibuprofen’s discovery (Advil, Moltrin) in 1961 was the result of research during the 1950’s to find a safer alternative to aspirin, with a patent application filed in 1961. This was all before aborted-fetal cell use in the 1970’s.

Maalox was first marketed in 1949.

Moltrin (See Ibuprofen)

Mucinex (See Guaifenesin)

Paracetamol (See Tylenol)

Penicillin, one of the most common antibiotics, was discovered in 1928. Like acetaminophen, a test was done in 2017, this one by the American Heart Association, used aborted-fetal cells to investigate whether penicillin causes risk of heart problems and “cardiac death.” We have yet another medicine where it was tested on aborted-fetal cells long after the medicine had been invented.

PeptoBismol (bismuth subsalicylate) was first marketed as Bismosal in 1918, although, bismuth salts were used in Europe by the late 1700s.

Phenylephrine (Sudafed PE) was patented in 1927 and came into medical use in 1938.

Plaquenil (See HCQ, Hydroxychloroquine)

Pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) was first researched by German scientists in 1889, synthesized in early 1920’s, and tested on dogs by 1927. Again, all of this obviously happened before the 1970’s.

Robitussin (See Dextromethorphan)

Senna Glycoside’s origins (Senocot) go back centuries to about 700’s BC.

Senocot (See Senna Glycoside)

Sudafed (See Pseudoephedrine)

Sudafed PE (See Phenylephrine)

Tums was created in 1929 and entered production in 1930.

Tylenol, also known as Paracetamol or acetaminophen, was discovered in the 1866 by 2 French doctors, first synthesized in 1877, and first marketed in the US in 1950. It wasn’t tested on aborted-fetal cells until 2017, when an article on “Nature” ( described research into whether acetaminophen targets the “TRPV1” irritant receptor found on cell membranes. (The cells used were the HEK-293 aborted-fetal cell line.) So, we have another everyday medicine created long before (over 100 hundred years) aborted-fetal cells were tested on it.


Abortion Free Medicines (after the use of aborted-fetal cells): (Medicines invented before the use of aborted-fetal cell lines obviously aren’t tainted. However, it can be more difficult with the advent of secret, hidden aborted-fetal cell use to ascertain who does and doesn’t abuse aborted-fetal cells in their research and production. To the best of our knowledge, this updated list contains medicines and shots that are abortion free.)

  • The following mRNA, DNA, or whole virus Covid-19 vaccines did not use aborted-fetal cells in design, development, production, or testing. Sinopharm whole virus vaccine (China), Bharat Biotech whole virus vaccine (India), Israel Institute for Biological Research whole virus vaccine (Israel), Sorrento protein-based vaccine (USA), Curevac protein-based vaccine (Germany), Genexine DNA shot (Korea), Osaka University, AnGes, Takara Bio DNA shot (Japan), Zydus Cadila DNA shot (India).
  • January 2022 update: Covaxin, developed by Bharat Biotech in India and distributed by Ocugen in the USA and Canada, is trying to get approval from the FDA, for use of its Covid-19 vaccine.  Covaxin has not used aborted-fetal cells in production, development, or testing of their vaccine.  Also, Covaxin is not mRNA.  Covaxin is an inactivated virus vaccine.

Abortion Tainted Medicines:

  • -As we have noted in other articles, COVID-19 shots did use aborted-fetal cells throughout their development (HEK-293 and PER.C6). The informative website, Children of God for Life, which is listed on our Resources page, states that the mRNA shots “would not exist” without aborted fetal cells. They continue:
  • Aborted fetal cell lines were used in the foundational research (synthesis of the SARS CoV-2 spike proteins), the vaccine development process and validation assessment prior to initiating clinical trial. It is correct to say that these vaccines would not exist but for the use of aborted fetal cell lines.”
  • Lifesite news similarly reported in May, 2021, “Especially problematic is the fact that several Corona vaccines were produced (e.g. AstraZeneca, Johnson&Johnson, Altimmune, Sputnik V {Gamaleya}, CanSino Biologics, ImmunityBio, NantKwest) or tested (e.g. Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna) by using the cell lines of aborted children. According to a report in Science (June, 2020), cell lines derived from aborted fetuses were used for at least five of the Covid-19 vaccines.”
  • February 2022 updateRegeneron‘s Covid-19 Monoclonal Antibody Treatment, REGEN-COV, was tested on aborted fetal cells. An article from Newsweek (09/03/21) quotes a Regeneron spokesperson, “Of the many experiments, one involved using the HEK293T cell line to help us select potent virus-neutralizing antibodies.” Please also note that many science outlets tout “humanized monoclonal antibodies with transgenic mice.” These transgenic mice are often engrafted with harvested organs and tissue taken from murdered/aborted babies.

March 2022 update: “Despite Novavax’s public statements that its COVID-19 vaccine does not have any connection to abortion-derived cell lines, evidence from a private letter and Novavax’s own published study shows that the HEK293 aborted fetal cell line was used in the testing phase.”  The full article and research can be viewed here at Personhood Alliance or here at Lifesite News.
