According to the Daily Mail, his opinion came during a Supreme Court decision not to take up a legal challenge by New York health care workers who opposed the vaccine mandate because of religious beliefs. Thomas cited the plaintiff's argument of the vaccine being denied based "on religious grounds to all available COVID–19 vaccines because they were developed using cell lines derived from aborted children," the outlet reported.

According to the Daily Mail, the idea that COVID vaccines were made using fetal cell lines is not true. Rather, Pfizer and Moderna used fetal cell lining to test the efficacy of their formulas early on during the vaccine process.

The Daily Mail reported that the cells used were from elective abortions from decades ago. The cells have replicated several times and none of the original tissue has been used in current vaccines. Lawyers for New York state said lab-grown stem cells were also used in the rubella vaccine process.

Sixteen health care workers sued, saying they had religious objections becauses of the fetal cell lines that were involed in the vaccine development. New York state lawyers argued that the process was not anything abnormal.

"The presence of a single, limited medical exemption to a vaccine requirement does not require the State to provide a blanket religious exemption from vaccination,' the lawyers said in written submissions," the lawyers wrote.
