On the Fetal Testing Angle to the Vax?

If I may beg your patience to help me unpack the above as part of a charitably fraternal response, isn't it true that in moral philosophy there are some instances whereby one may remotely cooperate with evil; however, isn't it also the case that the available Covid vaccines must continually test against the virus using new fetal cell lines?  As for her second argument that other childhood vaccinations we may have already accepted for our kids are just as tainted, couldn't one argue that less information was available at the time, or that we were coerced?  I feel that my children's pediatrician either was woefully ignorant or lied to us.  In this new vax, furthermore, we know we are the lab rats and have no long-term data to show the possible side effects.  I'm also planning to modify one of Patrick Madrid's rhetorical devices by switching the victim of abortion with tissue/testing on a slave or an inmate in a Holocaust concentration camp.

Nevertheless, if my poor sister is willing to buy into this (when we were okay with just masks & "social" distancing for the past year+), I feel pretty helpless in convincing her.  It's "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" time.  

So my suggestion is to take your post, and simply substitute your objections for hers. It simply goes both ways.

The Church has suggested that most of its members get the vaccine to help protect others from contracting this disease and to stop the spread, illness and death from Covid. If the Church's word isn't good enough for you, no sense in looking for other moral or philosophical arguments to support your decision.

Yes, your chance of survival may be pretty good. But what is the cost of a long hospital stay both monetarily and to your health and family.

Also, if you are fine with her decision for you not to visit her family at the cabin, why are you looking for support in your argument with her. Just don't go. It seems however that you aren't "fine" with her decision for you and your family not to go to their cabin. Solution, get your own cabin and go there.
