Did Bayer use "fetal cell lines" to isolate and market Aspirin in 1899? Answer: No!

Therefore, asking people not to take Aspirin because its development involved "fetal cell lines" is bunk.

Bill, you stated in the OP of this thread that Aspirin was developed using "fetal cell lines" and this is not factual! Bayer did not use "fetal cell lines" to develop and market aspirin!

Fetal cell lines... were not involved in the discovery of aspirin...

True!


but the development, testing and experimentation with aspirin didn't stop with its discovery.

Who cares? This is irrelevant.

Bottom line: Asking people not to take Aspirin because its development involved "fetal cell lines" is bunk.
