Your Catholic Vote and Bioethics

There is a lot of buzz about whether or not there will soon be a Covid-19 vaccine.

As Christians, the methodology used to discover vaccines and other medical advancements is of great importance to us. Are they ethically created? Do they uphold the dignity of the human person? These are critical questions, especially as we consider the upcoming election and who our future political leaders may be.

The destruction of human life for medical research is firmly opposed by the Catholic Church. The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith made this clear:

Therefore, it needs to be stated that there is a duty to refuse to use such “biological material” even when there is no close connection between the researcher and the actions of those who performed . . . [the abortion]. This duty springs from the necessity to remove oneself, within the area of one’s own research, from a gravely unjust legal situation and to affirm with clarity the value of human life. (Dignitas personae, n. 35, emphasis original)
