Aborted Fetal DNA in Children's Vaccines

I have been doing some research into the traditional gamut of vaccines administered to infants and toddlers; the Autism Research Institute and the National Vaccine Information Center have been especially helpful. Perhaps one of the most concerning things is the connection between aborted fetal DNA and some traditional vaccines. The Minnesota House of Representatives is currently dealing with legislation on point:

"ST. PAUL – Citing studies that suggest stem-cell based vaccines are temporarily linked to rising autism levels across the nation, State Representative Laura Brod (R-New Prague) is authoring legislation requiring product labeling and patient consent before human DNA vaccines are administered to them."

The National Catholic Bioethics Center confirms that this should be a point of concern for parents who vaccinate their children:

"There are a number of vaccines that are made in descendent cells of aborted fetuses. Abortion is a grave crime against innocent human life. We should always ask our physician whether the product he proposes for our use has an historical association with abortion. We should use an alternative vaccine if one is available."
