What vaccines contain cells of aborted fetuses?
WI-38 (ingredient in MMR vaccine) is a diploid human cell line composed of fibroblasts derived from lung tissue of a 3-month-gestation female fetus.

None- viruses can be grown in bacteria via recombinant DNA. Anti-Vaxxers love to tell people (esp in America) that all science/vaccines use aborted foetuses to stop the majority of people having it because they're Christians and believe this to be wrong.

That would be impossible.

The WI38 cell line was taken in 1962 from one aborted foetus, and has been reproduced in laboratories and used ever since for the production of vaccines.
It is nothing to get excited about. It is just a cell.
Edit: To give you an answer: All vaccines contains these cells because it is a grow medium. You cannot filter all cells out of the fluid - the same with HELA cancer cells.
(HELA cells = the fastes growing cancer cells from HEnrietta LAchs - she died of this cancer and "doctors" were been very happy to get this cancer material...terrible!
What stupid people don't want to realise is that these cells act like a transplantation organ - alien cell is alien cell. If you get a transplant, you need to take immune suppressants your whole life. You don't take it if you get these vaccines. The result is a lot of allergies. If you go to one of these stupid doctors with an allergy, they give you a ****îng immune suppressant instead of finding out that the vaccine is responsible.
People are dying by stupidity. Congratulations!

And at the rest of that first paragraph of the wikipedia article where you got that quote: "The contributions from this cell line towards human virus vaccine production have been credited with avoiding disease in, or saving the lives of, billions of people."
So I'd say the usage of those cells, rather than just disposing of the fetus, was well worth it.
