Many pro-lifers refuse to get the COVID ‘jab’ due to conscience-protection issues. The issue has reached a fever pitch as many employers in the medical field have issued an ultimatum to healthcare workers: get jabbed or get fired.
All of the major anti-COVID shots used aborted fetal cell lines in the testing of their products; Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca use them in the actual manufacturing process.
If you have ethical concerns with these products, Iowans for LIFE is happy to provide you with a letter in support of your conscience-protections for you to provide to your employer.
Simply email our Executive Director, Maggie DeWitte, at: email@example.com.
Here is what we would write:
To Whom it may concern:
Iowans for LIFE is the longest standing, non-profit pro-life organization in Iowa. Since 1972, we have been dedicated to protecting human life by informing, educating, and inspiring society to value the sanctity of all human life from fertilization to natural death.
We advocate at the state capital, in classrooms, and at events across Iowa (this week, the State Fair) on a range of life-related issues.
We are writing to you today on behalf of [name] in regard to the COVID inoculation. Like other medical workers, [she/he] is facing pressure to be inoculated as a condition for further employment.
We ask you to reconsider.
Iowans for LIFE is not insensitive to the unique medical environment wrought by COVID. Nor should you dismiss the legitimate ethical concerns your employees may hold regarding the development of a number of COVID preventatives.
Specifically, both AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson use abortion-derived cell lines in both the testing and manufacture of their product; Moderna and Pfizer both used abortion-derived cell lines in the testing of their product.
Many men and women of conscience believe that the use of products made on the backs of aborted babies make them complicit in grave evil.
Conscience-protections have been a fundamental part of the American experience for healthcare workers who want to provide excellent care for their patients without violating their own personal and professional integrity.
It is bad enough that aborted human babies are exploited by the medical community for profit, even if the ends seem to be good. But the ends never justify the means. The evil is compounded when good people striving to live intentionally ethical lives are coerced into participating in what they believe to be a gravely wrong act, in this case a COVID shot.
No one should have to make such a decision.
Abortion has scarred this country since the Roe v Wade decision in 1973. Its carnage continues with the development of morally tainted products developed on the backs of innocent, aborted victims.
I respectfully encourage you to honor America’s historic respect for conscience-protections for men and women of goodwill and find another path forward.
Maggie DeWitte, Executive Director
