    I think you already know what that means... Maybe google fetal calf serum if your interested at all but be warned its a touchy subject! I have used it before but there isn't much choice in my field.

    Just remember another one.. often people don't believe I am allergic to Stainless steel & most hypo-allergenic medical tapes & creams. They tend to think it is impossible to be allergic to them.

    Isn't that what they use in vaccines?

    Im not sure about that exactly. It is used extensively to grow cells/tissues (so yes i guess in a way vaccines). It is used because of the growth hormones present mainly because they cannot yet be artificially synthesised. There is a number of different serums used.

    They don't actually contain aborted fetuses?
    The original vaccine was grown in fetal cells wasnt it?,

    Yes they are cell lines grown from human fetal tissue so no not technically aborted fetal tissue

    Sounds a bit scary to be honest I don't
    Think I really want to know.....
    The virus is grown in the aborted cells that once were a human fetus, the original cells for vaccines grown this way were taken from 3 aborted fetuses.

    I do not believe the vaccine contains aborted fetuses as such in the same way veggies are grown in the dirt but once washed do not contain dirt?

    They did get it from the fetuses I think in the 1960,s? Then just took the cells and grew them so they are derived from but not actually human fetal tissue ( I am not a scientist so someone correct me if I'm wrong but that's how I read it!)
