In October 2021, a Pfizer whistleblower revealed internal emails from the Senior Director of Worldwide Research, Vanessa Gelman, discussing the use of fetal cells in their COVID-19 vaccine. On Wednesday, Project Veritas released a video of one of their journalists approaching Gelman to ask her about these emails. Without a word, Gelman ran away from the reporter, unwilling to explain her side of the story.
A Pfizer whistleblower, Melissa Strickler, leaked internal emails in 2021 that showed corporate executives telling staff to be secretive about using human fetal tissue in laboratory testing of the COVID vaccine.
In these emails, Gelman wrote, “From the perspective of corporate affairs, we want to avoid having the information on fetal cells floating out there… The risk of communicating this right now outweighs any potential benefit we could see, particularly with general members of the public who may take this information and use it in ways we may not want out there. We have not received any questions from policymakers or media on this issue in the last few weeks, so we want to avoid raising this if possible.”
“We have been trying as much as possible to not mention the fetal cell lines… One or more cell lines with an origin that can be traced back to human fetal tissue has been used in laboratory tests associated with the vaccine program,” Gelman wrote.
Philip Dormitzer, Pfizer’s Chief Scientific Officer, contributed to these emails, confirming that the fetal tissues used in the vaccine development process are “ultimately derived from an aborted fetus.”
James Lalino, a Project Veritas journalist, intercepted Gelman while she was outside, seemingly on a walk. Lalino approached her and asked, “Are you Vanessa?”
He had barely finished his question before she began sprinting away.
“Vanessa Gelman, I’m a reporter with Project Veritas,” said Lalino, hurrying after her and asking, “Miss, why did you send emails telling Pfizer employees not to report that you guys were using fetal cell lining?”
“What else are you hiding from the public today?” Lalino asked, as Gelman ran into her house and slammed the door behind her.
“Well, there you have it,” said Lalino after Gelman refused to comment. “We wanted to ask her a few questions, she broke out into a sprint… We tried to get a comment, she ran.”
Lalino concluded his attempted interview, saying, “Sometimes, they don’t want to answer for the fraud they’re committing or the corruption that’s going on.”
