In recent times there has been discussions about the COVID-19 vaccine candidate supported by the Australian government – a letter was sent to Scott Morrison regarding concerns from three Archbishops.
A special episode of The Pastor’s Heart ensued – the key issue – should you personally choose to use a COVID-19 vaccine candidate that makes use of a cell line cultured from an electively aborted human fetus?
To put it super bluntly: If I get vaccinated for covid-19 am I complicit in an abortion?
