Bob Marshall: The perilous quest to fast-track a Covid-19 vaccine

To address the COVID-19 epidemic governments are considering mandatory vaccination of every person in the world with fast-tracked, never-before-approved vaccines that can alter genes; vaccines using tissue from aborted children and vaccines developed without animal testing prior to human trials.

Rushing to produce a Covid-19 vaccine could have similar effects.
