i didnt know to put this here or in Vax! But I was wondering what the actual Catholic Churches position on vaccinating is.

(Because there are fetal cells in at least one of them-that I know about...I dont know where they get the cells though-misscarriages or abortion clinics I suppose.)

Like most denominations, there is no "official" church position.

Here's an article on the topic from a Catholic doc, so that you may educate yourself:

http://www.cogforlife.org/thevaccinationquestion.htm

The link to the Vatican's "statement" about vaccines is in the first paragraph.

The article will also tell you where the aborted fetal tissue came from, and how many abortions were performed to get it.

Every baptized Christian is, or should be, someone with an actual (disturbing) experience, ... a close encounter, with God; someone who, as a result, becomes a disturbing presence to others. - Fr. Anthony J. Gittins, A Presence That Disturbs
