The Australian Vaccination-Skeptics Network, or AVN, is claiming that Australian mandatory vaccine laws, known as ‘no jab, no pay,’ is a direct violation of religious freedoms. They are basing this claim on some vaccines “containing the proceeds of abortion’’.
“To use vaccines prepared with the products of abortion is a moral evil, and a direct violation of the teachings of pro-life religions, which include Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Buddhism,’’ the group told the federal parliamentary inquiry into religious freedom via Daily Telegraph.
AVN claims that there have been many cases of people terminating their jobs due to an inability to comply with the laws.
The Australian Immunisation Handbook reads, “Some of these cell lines … were originally derived from human fetal tissue in the 1960s.”
“These cell lines have been growing under laboratory conditions for more than 40 years, and there has been no further foetal tissue obtained since the 1960s. The cell lines are not included as a component of the vaccine.’’
These vaccines include Rabies, hepatitis A, Rubella and the infamous MMR.
The AMA classified the claims as “completely irrational” and “unscientific.”
