Did so-called "Conservative" Death Penalty & Abortion-Tainted Vaccines Advocates "Obfuscate... ma[king] it sound as though Pope Benedict himself said it might be Permissible to use the [Abortion] Cell Lines. [When] In fact no such thing was ever said" in 2011?
"Might the "Catholic principles" which Brugger teaches be heretical since
they apparently come from Brugger's problematic mentor, Germain Grisez?" - The Catholic Monitor
In 2011, Life Issues exposed so-called "conservative" influential "New Natural Law Theorist" William E. May's "obfuscat[ion]" of what Pope Benedict XVI taught about abortion-tainted vaccines. May was a close collaborator of E. Christian Brugger who currently promotes Francis's apparent heretical death penalty teachings. [http://lyceumphilosophy.com/?q=node/97]
Both belong to the Germain Grisez School of Vatican II theology which is called "The New Natural Law Theory" that advocates apparently for abortion-tainted vaccines, Francis's teachings that contradicts past teachings and is judged "heretical" by a Doctor of the Church and seems to promote more abortions as well as more deaths to the most vulnerable COVID patients while claiming to be "pro-life."
One decade ago, Life Issues reported that Brugger's close collaborator May "caus[ed] confusion and consternation for Catholics, where none existed before. Because the writer himself seems confused on Pope Benedict XVI's approved instruction, Dignitas Personae... obfuscat[ing] the intention of this passage by eliminating the entire actual quote that showed a clear reference to those insufficient statements made by ethics committees in the past. In doing so, he made it sound as though Pope Benedict himself said it might be permissible to use the [abortion]cell lines. In fact no such thing was ever said':
Some ethicists have opined in the past that using embryonic or aborted fetal cell lines that are taken from deliberately aborted fetuses or embryos is not morally problematic since the researcher had nothing to do with the initial destruction of innocent human beings.
Perhaps this is why Mr. May chose to ignore the opening sentence in this section of Dignitas Personae that addresses this clearly and concisely:
Whoa - let's stop right there for a moment and examine what the Magisterium just said versus what Mr. May wrote. The Church notes above that the "criterion of independence as it has been formulated by some ethics committees is not sufficient." They then go on to explain that "According to this criterion" - that is the criteria formulated by "some ethics committees" - not the Vatican's criteria - "the use of such "biological material" would be ethically permissible..."
But in an unusual twist, May obfuscates the intention of this passage by eliminating the entire actual quote that showed a clear reference to those insufficient statements made by ethics committees in the past. In doing so, he made it sound as though Pope Benedict himself said it might be permissible to use the cell lines. In fact no such thing was ever said.
No wonder faithful Catholics are confused! May continues to treat the above passage throughout his discourse as though the Vatican is allowing exceptions in certain cases for researchers using these cell lines, when clearly the exact opposite is noted in several places.
In an attempt to further confuse what the Church intended, May again omits key sentences that forbid the use of cell lines by researchers as he quotes sporadically from the instruction.
For example, he fails to mention these two key sentences in Dignitas Personae: (No.35, par 3)
Again, instead of citing this properly, May omits the above and immediately jumps to the very next sentence, in which he again eliminates important criteria. May begins by writing, "In fact, 'there is a duty to refuse....'", as he continues with the text in its entirety from this paragraph.
But Dignitas Personae actually begins a bit differently in that sentence:
It is a slight nuance, between what May wrote and what Dignitas Personae actually stated, but it's an important one. The intention was to show that because of past confusion on whether one could use the cell lines or not, it was necessary to state it clearly, as was finally done in this Church instruction.
Now if May had stopped right there and explained that indeed, these cell lines clearly could not be used by the researchers, it might not have been necessary to cry "foul!" Instead, he then goes on to blur the distinctions Dignitas Personae made between those who use the cell lines in research and those who use vaccines produced from these cell lines, citing a 2009 article by Christian Brugger, Strengths and Weaknesses of Dignitas Personae.
In that article Brugger poses some rather absurd questions regarding the use of these cell lines, where he writes, "Would this apply to an epidemiologist in 2009 doing research on the WI lines, or to vaccines derived from those lines, given that both were taken from electively aborted fetuses? The moral wrongthe grave evil of abortionwas done nearly forty material cooperation in those immoral acts is doubtlessly remote."
Let's break this down because we are talking apples and oranges here.
First, epidemiologists do not use aborted fetal cell lines to conduct research; scientists in the lab might, but epidemiologists gather statistical data and do not conduct biological research.
Second, the Vatican has drawn sharp distinctions between those who conduct research using immoral cell lines and parents who use the vaccines produced from those cell lines in order to protect the health of their children. At no point do they use the fact that the abortions were done several years ago. Anyone with even a cursory knowledge of Catholic teaching knows that time does not diminish the sin, nor does it lessen the evil of the act that was performed.
Third, the Vatican did not say that, "Current material cooperation in those immoral acts is doubtlessly remote," as Brugger contends.
In fact, here is what the Pontifical Academy for Life stated on cooperation for both researchers and the parents in their 2005 dissertation, Moral Reflections on Vaccines Prepared from Cells Derived from Aborted Human Fetuses:
For Researchers (Pages 5-6)
In fact, that last statement is exactly what has happened with new abortions and new fetal cell lines being used for future vaccines. As for the level of cooperation by parents who use the vaccines, the PAFL had a lot more to say about "remote cooperation":
For parents and physicians who use the vaccines from aborted fetal cell lines: (Page 6)
Without question, the PAFL went to great lengths to describe the various levels of cooperation and how those levels are far more complicated than Brugger described for both parents and the researchers using these cell lines. It is both irresponsible and incredible that Brugger and May fail to either understand or acknowledge this.Yet May continues to distort the facts by quoting from Berger who goes on to assert, "Is a researcher's duty to refuse to work on those materials exceptionless,[sic] even when the refusal could result in harms to the researcher and to his or her family? The text indicates that it is not. It states that "grave reasons may be morally proportionate to justify the use of such 'biological material' (n. 35)"
And while May includes it in his article, Brugger omits the real explanation that Dignitas Personae gave for such criteria. The "grave reasons that may be morally proportionate" are directed toward parents who might need to use the vaccines for their children - not the researchers!
Here is the sentence from Dignitas Personae, which immediately follows why these "grave reasons may be morally proportionate":
Note, the "responsibility of those who make the decision to use them" applies to the researchers, whereas "those who have no voice in such a decision" are the parents and physicians who use the vaccines produced from cell lines of illicit origin.
Without question, there is no "exception" anywhere in Dignitas Personae for researchers as it states:
While this portion in and of itself is enough to explain the Vatican's position on researchers using these cell lines Brugger and May continue to act very mystified and confused as to what the Church says on using these cell lines, opining, "But the Instruction, following the 2005 Pontifical Academy for Life text, "Moral Reflections on Vaccines Prepared from Cells Derived from Aborted Human Fetuses," only mentions parents consenting for grave reasons to their children's immunization. Where does this leave morally conscientious researchers?"
Now certainly both May and Brugger read the documents in their entirety didn't they? Then why act as though additional clarity is still needed? But just in case anyone still has any doubts after all that has been presented here from these Vatican documents, this is what "morally conscientious researchers" are left to consider according to the PAFL:
Regardless of Brugger and May's personal opinions, neither the PAFL dissertation nor Dignitas Personae left any wiggle room for the researchers.[https://www.lifeissues.net/writers/vin/vin_12dignitaspersonae.html]
Moreover, Brugger recently has advocated teachings that contradicts past Church teaching that were judged "heretical" by a Doctor of the Church and seems to promote more abortions and more deaths to the most vulnerable COVID patients:
Brugger who supports the Francis teaching against the death penalty "according to Catholic principles" wrote:
Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He wants you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost - Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.
