Teen who sued San Diego Unified over vaccine mandate to file appeal after judge rejects religious exemption

The Scripps Ranch High School junior says taking the vaccine would go against her Christian beliefs because the vaccine was tested on stem cell lines derived from aborted fetal cells.

The 16-year-old junior and her family contend in the lawsuit that the girl’s Christian beliefs prohibit her from taking the vaccine since it was tested on stem cell lines derived from aborted fetal cells collected decades ago. Fetal cell lines are regularly used in the research and development of vaccines and common medications including Tylenol, Pepto Bismol and Sudafed.

This is all bullshit, something that right-wing, shit-stirrer Project Veritas tries to promote. Fetal cells are not in the Covid vaccines.

Brain cells are not in anti-vaxxers.

I'm not saying denominations aren't allowed to change their "deeply held beliefs," for example some Christian denominations now are fine with same sex marriage but weren't 20 years ago....

But these Christians who claim abortion goes against the Bible and their beliefs need to acknowledge that was NOT THE CASE a mere 40 years ago. Prior to that it was mainly a Catholic thing. White Christians in America being anti-abortion is VERY NEW THING in the scope of non-Catholic Christianity.

[quote]Few evangelical pastors believed that life begins at conception in 1970. That was a Catholic dogma, and Catholics were the enemy.

[quote]When Jerry Falwell founded the pro-life Moral Majority in 1979, Paul Brown, the founder of the American Life League, scoffed, “Jerry Falwell couldn’t spell ‘abortion’ five years ago.” But Falwell knew an opportunity when he saw one.
