(LifeSiteNews) — A Catholic “fact-checking” group that clarifies “fake news and misleading information about vaccines against COVID-19” and defends the abortion-tainted injections, receives funding from Google, and is linked to Bill Gates, George Soros, and the Pontifical Academy for Life. 

The recently formed organization, also known as the International Catholic Media Consortium on Covid-19 Vaccines, has the aim to “clarify fake news and misleading information about vaccines against COVID-19.”

To achieve this, as noted by Church Militant, the group is comprised of an “international consortium of Catholic media, news agencies, and world-renowned scientists.”

The consortium seeks to respond to the “many scientific and ethical questions” which are being raised “regarding the ethical character of the process of producing the vaccines.”

“These issues need to be clarified or explained by scientists, bioethicists, and theologians,” the group adds. 

The Consortium defends the use of the abortion-tainted COVID jabs, attacks natural immunity, and criticizes the concept of seeking a religious exemption to jab mandates.

In turn, Eric Sammons, editor in chief of Crisis Magazine, soundly criticized the group as being “funded by Google to push the COVID vaccines (and silence opposing views).”
