With the release of COVID vaccines, and then the mandates, we’ve seen a new resurgence of people attempting to gain religious exemptions.

Many of these attempts focus on fetal tissue obtained through abortion.

On January 19, 2021, AnnaMaria Cardinalli published an explosive article in Crisis Magazine, headlined, “Catholic Conscience and the COVID-19 Vaccine.”

Cardinalli details the collection of fetal tissue for the cell line named HEK 293.

The tissue was taken from an aborted infant in the Netherlands in 1972-3.

This cell line was used for “testing” the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.

Cardinalli writes: “We know that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines do not use any cells derived from abortion in the production process. That is, we know that we are not being directly injected with fetal cells or their engineered descendants (though this fact differs with other manufacturers). We hear that the abortion-derived cell lines were only used in testing, which should somehow comfort us, though it still means that the vaccines from which we seek to benefit depend on the involvement of abortion. We are told that the cell line used in testing came from one abortion, which took place decades ago. These things are all true, but they do not serve to inform us fully.”

“What we may not know follows. The most prominent cell line, called HEK 293, comes from an abortion performed in the 1970’s…”

“HEK stands for human embryonic kidney. To harvest a viable embryonic kidney for this purpose, sufficiently healthy children old enough to have adequately-developed kidneys must be removed from the womb, alive, typically by cesarean section, and have their kidneys cut out. This must take place without anesthesia for the child, which [anesthesia] would lessen the viability of the organs. Instead of being held, rocked, and comforted in the time intervening between their birth and their death, they have organs cut out of them alive.”

“There is no way that a spontaneous abortion could result in the cell line (as the kidneys cannot remain viable past the brief window in which they must be harvested) or that some brilliant researcher found a way for great good to come out of a rare tragedy by making use of a child’s body donated to science after it was aborted. The deliberate killing of an unwanted child (a little girl, in the case of HEK 293) took place in the tortuous manner it did precisely to obtain her organs for research. The harvest of her organs was the direct cause of her death, prior to which, she was a living child, outside the womb.”

“I fear that Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict may not have had this information when they received the vaccines. If we re-examine the Vatican statement that ‘it is morally acceptable to receive COVID-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and productions process,’ we see that it does not apply here. It does not imagine this scenario. To approve of the currently-available vaccines, it would have to read ‘it is morally acceptable to receive COVID-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from living persons, killed by the harvest of their organs for use in medical research and productions processes,’ but the Church’s moral teachings could never truly bend so far.

Similar to the human rights abuses exposed by international tribunal in today’s China, where unwanted individuals such as religious and political dissidents are executed by the harvest of their organs for profit, the little girl whose cells gave rise to the COVID-19 vaccines was brutally sacrificed for the purpose, as were all the children whose cell lines failed before her.”

After reading Cardinalli’s analysis—not only should the granting of religious exemptions from vaccination be a foregone conclusion; the whole field of fetal tissue research, going back many years and involving many pharmaceutical products, should be put on trial.

The people who have been carrying out the murders, the people who have been using the harvested tissue, the companies—all of them—on trial.

I hope many medical professionals will take Cardinalli’s article as a springboard, and weigh in on what she is very clearly stating.

And not just doctors. All people who are shocked by her conclusions.

So far, I see one counter-claim to Cardinalli’s assertions:

The notion that the kidneys of the aborted baby must be harvested very quickly is false. The kidneys can survive for a longer period.

On that score, I refer you to a devastating video interview conducted by Robert Kennedy Jr. His guest was SOUND CHOICE PHARMACEUTICAL INSTITUTE “President and Founder, Dr. Theresa Deisher Ph.D., [with] over 30 years of pharmaceutical research and leadership experience. She discovered adult cardiac derived stem cells, has worked on their therapeutic uses as an alternative to human fetal DNA, and leads a team of scientists at AVM Biotechnology dedicated to changing what a diagnosis of cancer, autoimmunity, or chronic infectious disease means to patients and their loved ones. As a result of this work, Dr. Deisher is named as an inventor on over 47 patents.”

In the first 15 minutes of the interview, Deisher makes it quite clear that infants in the womb are taken out alive, with their blood supply functioning (essential) and then killed by cutting out their hearts or their brains. This is what is done in order to obtain tissue that will be turned into fetal cell lines.

Since this act of murder is standard practice, it would appear it was committed against the live baby whose kidney cells became cell line HEK 293, used in testing the COVID vaccines.

At the top of the interview, Kennedy said he didn’t want to get into the moral aspect of fetal cell lines. But after listening to Deisher, he was quite shaken. He said so. He said they would have to cover the moral aspect.

The whole world has to.


For all people of faith. Every faith.

“According to my religious belief, the murder of an undeniably live infant for any reason is unconscionable and evil, and I refuse the vaccine.”

Here is a Force against which no government, no establishment, no secret society, no wealth can stand.

I fully understand all sorts of professionals will spout language that purports to show “the aborted infant was not alive, the lab followed all the legal guidelines, this is an old argument that has been debunked…”

But this is not just an old argument. This is the equivalent of an opening statement in a murder trial. Nothing less.

If religious leaders will read AnnaMaria Cardinalli’s article, they will see how important her charge is.

The question isn’t “will people of faith wake up and do what they should”; the question is “how can any person of faith NOT do what they should”.

If they will make a stand; if all people of faith will; the entire dire situation we are facing changes in the blink of an eye.

Solomon to God: “You have made Your servant king instead of my father David, but I am a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in…Therefore give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil.”

Gautama Buddha: “To cease from evil, to do good, and to purify the mind yourself, this is the teaching of all the Buddhas.”

John 10:10: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

Would any church, any religion in the world say that God wants the killing of live infants for the purpose of medical research?

In the midst of this COVID tyranny, haven’t we all been looking for a truth that will galvanize huge numbers of people?

And not as some kind of stunt. But rather as an inevitable outcome of deep faith.

Faith and justice come from the same everlasting tree.

    I must preclude my comment with, I am no saint, yet, even so :

    For many, many years I have asked :

    What was the most heinous of crimes the Canaanites engaged in?

    What was the most heinous of crimes the Aztecs engaged in?

    What was the most heinous of crimes the Mayans engaged in?

    (these, only three of numerous other civilizations).

    Did these ancient civilizations simply mysteriously disappear?

    Isn’t the word “abortion” nothing less than a “political” euphemism? I wonder if the “services” Edward Bernays (or some other of his “profession”) was employed to devise such a euphemism?

    Abortion is (had been for several years) being “championed” in nations formerly considered bastions respecting sanctity of life for the most innocent among us.

    How much more time will God, the creator of all things, tolerate the transgression of “child sacrifice”?

    Can you guess my (vehement) stance against the “Death-Vaxx”?

    Can you guess my (vehement) stance against the entire created global “Scam-Demic” production (charade, false-flag, psy-op)?

    • Vakzine Machst Frei says:

      Maya civilization collapsed because people just left. They left cities and went to live on in the jungle. No need to work for the state, for the priest and for other parasites.

      Actual parasites are scared that people could find out this and get ideas. They removed this info from history books.

    • William R Hall Jr says:

      It’s a world run by psychopaths. A psychopaths biggest fear is being exposed. These tyrants must be held accountable.

      Everyone must know the the Covid-19 virus does not exist and neither do the HIV virus or the Polio virus.

    • Siouxma says:

      Satanists don’t seem to have a problem sacrificing babies to Moloch.
      There are two types of Abortions in medical coding: Spontaneous abortions are commonly referred to as a Miscarriage where nothing was done to purposely cause it. Induced abortions are performed intentionally for the purpose of removing the baby (chemically, pharmaceutically, mechanically, surgically).
      This practice of aborting late term babies who could survive outside the womb brings up some huge questions. How can anybody carry a baby for 7, 8, 9 months and then at the last moment decide to abort a viable child that could be given up for adoption). How can any doctor perform such an atrocious murder?
      The only answer I can come up with is the woman is being paid for her trouble- BigPharma is paying the tab, and the doctor and his/her coworkers have no souls any more to harvest whatever raw materials are needed. Does anyone really believe these babies are given a proper burial…or left to rot in a dump of biowaste?

      • trishwriter says:

        Please don’t suggest adoption as some kind of savior for abortion. Many of us adoptees see quite clearly the problems inherent in separating mother and child via adoption.

        • Susan Moskalets says:

          It’s better than murder.

          The most famous adopted child was Jesus. Joseph “adopted” Him.

          You are in very good company

  2. Julie M. says:

    Thank you for this powerful post, Jon. Even as a dedicated lifelong prolifer at 70 years old who has rejected any medical interventions that have involved the use of cells derived from the killing of fetal children, I was not aware of the full extent of the horror of obtaining HEK cells. I will share this knowledge with anyone who will listen. (If only more were willing to listen.)

    I have been disgusted by defenders of this practice pointing out that the fetal child was “aborted decades ago,” as if the passage of time lessens the crime. “But, Your Honor, I bludgeoned that guy to death 40 years ago, so it’s not murder anymore, right?” People will rationalize anything to suit their wishes.

    You are doing God’s work, Jon. May He bless you richly.

  3. Jim S Smith says:

    Not to mention that “vaccination theory”, itself, is so full of holes, that it can barely compete with a sponge!

    The entirety of modern allopathy is a system of “war against Nature” – for max profits. So how else would “vaccine-research” be carried out in so cavalierly a fashion? “Life” means very little, other than its equated “economic value” to those who exploit it.

  4. Orpheus Owl says:

    Then there’s also the Fetal Bovine Serum of 3 to 9 month old cow fetuses still in the womb. After all, God created animals as sentient beings too.

    PROCEDURE: After the slaughter of a pregnant dairy cow, the 3 to 9 month old fetus is cut out and removed while still alive during the evisceration process. (The heart is too small to puncture under 3 months old) A needle is inserted between the ribs directly into the still-beating heart without any anesthesia.

    All the blood is then suctioned out and sold to pharma companies for use in vaccines and serums. About 132,000 gallons of FBS are sold per year worldwide. It’s used in the mRNA Covid injection as well as most of the vaccines on the market.

    • Steve Johann says:

      Wow Thanks for noting this. So many evils lurking behind the veil we call business as usual, especially Big Pharma. The bible states it’s the love of money that births all sorts of evil. Paul wasn’t kidding. I have more research to do. I have come to see the vaxx industry has nothing to do with health and everything to do with wealth. Best to you.

  5. Laura says:

    Thanks Jon! Big Pharma scum (Stanley Plotkin) openly admit under oath that FOR DECADES they’ve tested vaccines on orphans, babies of mothers who are in jail, retarded people and in 3rd world countries. I resent that they try to “ease our conscience” by claiming that only 1 baby’s cells were used to create these “life-saving” vaccines – an absolute lie! Stanley Plotkin (inventor of many vaccines) openly admits to chopping up dozens of babies for use in the development of many vaccines.

    My other frustration is where did the notion that we need to justify declining a medical procedure with a religious exemption? It seems like the idea for requiring a religious exemption for COVID was also planned well in advance. Out of nowhere, people like “The Healthy American Peggy Hall” were charging people money for their classes teaching how to jump through employers’ ridiculous, unconstitutional hoops to get a religious exemption from a medical procedure they had NO legal authority to require in the first place. What about INFORMED CONSENT as the only reason needed to opt out of a proven dangerous medical procedure? My question to people seeking a religious exemption is, what if your reason isn’t “religious” enough – then what? Can your employer then tie you down and force you? Or can your employer then justifiably fire you for not giving a “religious” reason that seems sincere enough? No one should have gone down the religious exemption route because it set a precedence that we all now have to justify not wanting a medical procedure. It set precedence that we have to ignore the REAL reason we don’t want the vaccine (potentially debilitating and deadly side effects) and people made fools of themselves coming up with Bible verses (which they never read before COVID) as justification. INFORMED CONSENT IS THE KEY.



    • AJ says:

      Well said

    • Kathy says:

      I believe the reason for using religious exemptions is that no one can question what your religious beliefs are. It is enough to say that you have sincerely held religious beliefs that would be violated, assuming that you generally demonstrate having a level of moral integrity. But in most cases it was the only way to opt out & still keep your job, though many states or employers disallowed religious exemptions as well.

  6. AJ says:

    These facts have been exposed and most fail to find them. And believe the truth. The catholic church is lost in it’s acceptance of the profit.

    Murder for profit will never stop. Moral wars seem to be losing. China still murders it’s people for organs. And no one raises any real resistance. China and other murderous tyrants have no fear because too much influence, bribery, flowing in the world.

    Germany now is prosecuting it’s citizens that verbally attach it’s politicians. Germany continues to advance it’s nazi heritage. Tyrants always expose their tyranny.

    In Europe, only some of the old people understand what is happening. The young are 99% brainwashed or not present.

    People from West Europe, who experienced freedom, understand what they lost. The ones from East Europe see EU as the new Soviet Union.

    The European civilization will be no more in 20-30 years. They will erase all books and movies about it.

    • Steve Johann says:

      There is hope for people in Europe as witnessed by all the protest marches going on throughout Europe for the past 2 years. Plenty of freedom fighters who refuse the vaxx and masking. I watch many of them via various platforms. You are not alone. Trust the Lord He is working: cleansing, exposing and waking people up. Don’t forget most people who live in Europe replaced faith in God with faith in pleasure and comfort like those who live here in USA and Canada. Romans 1:18- tells what happens when this takes place. Best to you.

  10. Yvonne Blasy says:

    What is disturbing as well is that, once one’s clergy have been made aware of this, they will still not warn their parishioners against the “vaccine” (gene modification modality), yet pretend to stand for pro life. They go on in support of this heinous agenda, even allowing their churches to be used as vaccination centers. My guess would be that it’s the non prof status that is threatened with lack of funding from the state if they don’t. Either that or they’re just plain cowards who don’t want to confront their big $upporter$ in the congregation who have had and promote the jab.

  11. Sue says:

    It’s to be expected because we have always blurred the lines, approving and supporting many forms of extreme violence, torture, and brutal slaughter of other living, breathing, thinking, sentient beings. Lines may then be easily crossed, and excuses glibly offered.

  12. Dr David Hill says:

    When The WHO mandates all pandemic vaccines globally in 2024 and national governments have to abide (they will have no national power to stop this), all people will be forced to have these killer vaccines – Our government’s are signing up to this now behind the scenes and sanction it. This is when the real tyranny starts with these Godless people…no choice or freedom then to say NO. Go to The WHO’s website and read up and where we are being controlled by evil people as we all know now, or should know. Biden and all other western leaders are our enemy not our friends and the sooner western people realise this the better chance we have of tryting to stop this genocide, which once in place, will go on indefinitly with them controlling the military and enforcement agencies. We have limited time to avert this now.

  13. Laura says:

    How am I not surprised in the least that the monsters took out a live baby’s organs, thereby killing her, “for science”? Gee whiz, could it be because they’re vivisectors? “Oh, but they do it all to save human lives!” people like to say, “Animal researchers sacrifice animals for their love of humanity!” People are such morally depraved fools.

  14. Roundball Shaman says:

    “Here is the basic ramification: THERE IS A RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION FOR THE WHOLE WORLD.”

    Yes, there is a religious exemption for the whole world. But we need to back up a step.

    We SHOULD NOT NEED AN ‘EXEMPTION’ from ANYONE. Because NO ONE has a right to push this toxic crap on any human being.

    The entire notion that someone or some group can dictate to any human being what they ‘must’ put into their body is an atrocity and a false idea from the beginning. Call this what it is: A form of rape. Period.

    And we already have laws against rape. Or, at least we used to…

    “Faith and justice come from the same everlasting tree.”

    The Tree of Life. From which springs all our lives, yours and mine and all who come after us. Not something ‘They’ gave us or have any right whatsoever to say anything about.

    Dress it up under imposing initials like WHO and CDC and posers in fancy suits and huge bank accounts and with titles like Doctor Weasel has. But rape is still rape no matter how many initials or titles you try to use to justify the horrendous abuses of and violation of others.

    Shame on Them ALL… to the power of infinity.

    • Invisible Man says:

      (Round of applause)

      Thank you Shaman. It is indeed a form of rape.

    • Laura says:

      Rape is such a brilliant way of framing what happened over the past 2 years – it is so true. I completely agree that no one needs to seek a religious “exemption” from being raped. I refused to get a religious exemption when my employer illegally “mandated” the jab, masks and testing. I also refused to fill out any electronic form asking me for my medical information and vax status. I simply respectfully asked my employer to show me where he got the legal authority to require these medical procedures as a condition of employment. Funny, he couldn’t provide me any legal authority and he left me alone – never vaxxed, never masked, never tested! The employers who went along with the rape of their employees for $ are scum, too.

  15. Michael says:

    Recently noted by Dr. Lee Merrett was the curious lack of spike protein generated by jabs in a very specific genomic group. Designated K26R, found in Khazar progeny, tracking back to Black Sea/Caspian area, modern-day Ukraine mostly. Immune, according to Dr. Merrett, unlike EVERY other genomic type known. Descendents of Khazars, are present-day Ashenazi and Amish, presumably enjoying no serious ‘side’ effects of tox. In their time, Khazars were famously ‘identity theives’ offering HOSPITALITY to wayfarers on trade routes. Barter, usury, taxes, tribute to clans the norm. But, often the victims were cajoled into revealing intimate details,…then murdered and alias assumed by murderer.
    Totally interesting that Semitic tribes were, and are now, fiercely under assault by Ashkenazi ‘identity thieves’ and Israel (not coincidentally most yabbed/sick/dead) or, more properly, Rothschild Acres is largest open-air Semitic settlement and targeted by descendents of Turkic tribes today. Bibi deal w/Bourla bragging about ‘world’s biggest laboratory’ hearkens to Boer/Pirbright/Rhodes/Wellcome concentration camps where newly-invented hypodermic needle used to shoot any and every filth imaginable and results tabulated. Mengele, Ishii, Fauci et al cut from same cloth. All of whom were ‘rehabilitated’ after WWII to continue grisly pursuits, American-style, in name of freedom, science naturally

  16. RevJack says:

    Thank you Jon for this post! Much appreciated.

  17. marlene says:

    I suspect one of the reasons for California’s now law that allows a baby aborted live to be killed up to several months old. Seems the organs of young children are more valuable than those of newborns, and bring in more money for those who abortion babies live. Thus, it’s more important than ever to have a data base to track these unidentified, unnamed, unknown babies to prevent them from being sold and used for unimaginable purposes by evil people who can get away with it, if they have a lenient judge.

  18. marlene says:

    In the case here, I suspect the “need” for fetal cells from live babies to make their HEK293 cell lines has created a greater demand for babies aborted live. Again, for ALL babies aborted live there needs to be a document chain of custody. Otherwise, the unthinkable is possible, and so many people today doing the unthinkable, the living human beings need to be protected from them.

    • Jacek Tokarski says:

      293 – it means that it was a 293-rd attempt to get a proper sample. How many lives it took to get a “success”?

  19. Loran says:

    All of the above, and other teachings, fell on deaf years.
    Repeating them will not change things.
    But one doesn’t stop doing what one thinks is the right thing to do – and that makes the doer/sayer the only certain beneficiary of what is done/said.

  20. Gringo says:

    Jon, here is a part I am unable to understand.

    In order to extract specimen from live baby fetus, there cannot be contamination of anesthesia chemicals. So is true for mother. Now, how you end up having around a woman about to give birth while set of doctors and nurses is waiting with instruments? Poor woman gets no anesthesia, too. That brings question: how do you incapacitate such a woman, so she offers no resistance? Murder?

    They admit, it was done hundreds of times!

    Another issue: who are the target group, for this Mengele/Frankenstein Pfizer experiments? Drug junkies are easiest to find and nobody will look for them when disappear, but they are chemically contaminated. Who else can be a candidate? I think there is still way more to this story beyond fetuses.

  21. Saul Boutme says:

    Big Pharma and Big Phood have been using aborted human fetal tissue for years, as flavor enhancement, among other uses.


    They are so wicked and deceitful it is beyond disgusting.

    All one can do is avoid these things and pass the info on, if people would only believe me. Damn near all my “conspiracy theories” have been proven to be fact, but I still get no credence.

    I ain’t shuttin’ up!

  22. LibertyLiz says:

    While we focus on a cell line horrifyingly obtained in the 1970s, keep in mind that these atrocities against human children occur EVERY DAY for “scientific research” as well as for satanic rituals and organ (as well as adrenochrome) harvesting.

    Of special note is that now these demonic lunatics are pushing to pass legislation allowing the killing of children 7 (or more) days AFTER BIRTH, because killing them in the womb and just before or after birth was simply not enough to satisfy their demonic lust for the destruction of humanity and anything created in the image of God.

  23. jessiemt says:

    Thank you Jon for this post and many others. Also thank you to the commentators above. Much appreciated.

  24. Peachy Sarmiento says:

    Every abortion is a sacrifice to the Canaanite false god Moloch or Baal. The true God destroyed civilizations and cities whose inhabitants practised these abominations of idolatry and murder of the innocents, which according to scientists/archeologists, were “abandoned”. The demonic civilizations of Meso-America, and the cult of the Babylonian false gods, the biblical account of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, as well as the annihilation of the ancient city of Carthage by the Romans are just examples of Divine Wrath for those peoples who are guilty of these sins. Today, the true God has been patiently waiting and calling for us to return to Him, convert and mend our ways, which fell into hardened hearts. Clearly, the world has never been in a precarious condition in any time in history, than today. There never was in history so much carnage of innocent life! The cries of the aborted/murdered infants rise to heavens for vengeance, and God who hears the cries of the weak, the poor, and the defenseless shall avenge them, throwing them all to the the Eternal fires of Gehenna.
