My wife shared this article with me this morning, I thought it was an interesting read, regarding the use of Vaccines and Aborted babies for the research. http://www.alabasterliving.com/blog/do-vaccines-violate-the-christian-faithI don't know if the author is a Christian, but she makes some good points. We need the wisdom of God these days.
