49: Christians, Vaccines and the Public Good


Christians, Vaccines and the Public Good

with Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit

What are the ethical questions behind taking the upcoming COVID19 vaccines? In all conscience, can Christians benefit from anything that has resulted from an abortion?

This episode, the With All Due Respect team test our sense of the ‘greater good’ to its limits.

The creation of a COVID19 vaccine from research that resulted from a decades old abortion has Christians asking whether or not they can benefit from a loss of life.

Megan Powell du Toit and Michael Jensen ask Denise Cooper-Clarke, a graduate of medicine and theology with a Ph.D in medical ethics, how ethically sound it is for Christians to take the new vaccine.

Then our WADR hosts deepen the debate in For Arguments Sake and consider whether or not people should be compelled to take this life-saving treatment.

Finally, episode 49 finishes up with a review of The Queen’s Gambit, showing how a mini-series about chess also has something to add to this thorny debate.


Less aggro, more conversation.

Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.

There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
