Vanessa Gelman, Pfizer Senior Director of Worldwide Research: "From the perspective of corporate affairs, we want to avoid having the information on fetal cells floating out there…The risk of communicating this right now outweighs any potential benefit we could see, particularly with general members of the public who may take this information and use it in ways we may not want out there. We have not received any questions from policy makers or media on this issue in the last few weeks, so we want to avoid raising this if possible."
Gelman: "We have been trying as much as possible to not mention the fetal cell lines…One or more cell lines with an origin that can be traced back to human fetal tissue has been used in laboratory tests associated with the vaccine program."
Philip Dormitzer, Pfizer Chief Scientific Officer: "HEK293T cells, used for the IVE assay, are ultimately derived from an aborted fetus. On the other hand, the Vatican doctrinal committee has confirmed that they consider it acceptable for Pro-Life believers to be immunized. Pfizer's official statement couches the answer well and is what should be provided in response to an outside inquiry."
Melissa Strickler, Pfizer Insider and Manufacturing Quality Auditor: "They're being so deceptive in their emails, it's almost like it is in the final vaccine. It just made me not trust it."
Strickler: I came to Project Veritas because "I have no one else to turn to when my own company won't be honest with me. What I was told to do was to trust Project Veritas and to go with you guys by lawmakers, by lawyers."
Strickler has created a GiveSendGo campaign for herself where the public can go and directly support her financially in her time of need.
