Secular Coalition to FDA: Keep religious politics out of vaccine research

The Secular Coalition for America, with member organizations  American Atheists, American Humanist Association, Center for Inquiry, and The Freedom From Religion Foundation have sent the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) a letter urging them to disregard messages from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, anti-abortion groups, and other religious right organizations that wrote urging the government to “incentivize pharmaceutical companies” not to use embryonic stem cells in developing a COVID-19 vaccine, calling the practice unethical.

“As the development of vaccines for COVID-19 and other preventable diseases is imperative to the health and well-being of Americans, we ask the FDA not to allow unscientific religious ideology to interfere with open scientific inquiry into all available lines of relevant research,” reads the Coalition letter. We will let you know when the FDA responds.
