In the end, your claim that aspirin was developed with the same technology as monoclonal antibody treatments that use fetal cell lines is bunk.

As usual, you run away from fact-fact statements.

Aspirin was developed outside the US--and was patented by Bayer, in Germany. Those are facts.

However, that is just the original discovery and development over a century ago.

Aspirin today is not made from the original development. Yeah, that is reality (which you do not want to admit because it contradicts your limited point of view).

"Aspirin is prepared by chemical synthesis from salicylic acid, through acetylation with acetic anhydride. The molecular weight of aspirin is 180.16g/mol. It is odourless, colourless to white crystals or crystalline powder."

Here you go--for Regeneron, which DID use fetal stem cells in its development.

'Indeed, Regeneron’s monoclonal antibody drug works by binding to the virus’s spike protein. Early in the drug development process, scientists used HEK293T trained to produce the protein to test whether the drug would, in fact, bind to it, Bowie said.

“The antibodies themselves weren't made of any of these fetal cells,” Kriegstein noted. “But it was really critical to use these cells to test how effective their approach really was.”'
