VACCINES: A Moral Issue?

on November 16, 2019

vaccines_

PREFACE: This study is written in regards to vaccines in the United States. Other countries may have varying products, policies and procedures. This is an informational article only. Therefore, all of your healthcare is ultimately decided upon by you, individually, and your physician.

This platform is a Bible study blog and not one utilized for ulterior motives or any type of agenda – other than to spread the truth and share God’s Word. However, since becoming a new mother, I have been forced to face many issues that I wouldn’t have otherwise; one of which is the topic of vaccines.

I thought that vaccines were more of a medical issue – but I have been amazed to find out that they are quickly becoming a moral issue, as well. Why? Because, it is a proven fact that aborted babies (and fetal cells from such) are used in vaccine research and in many vaccines themselves and even cited on the (CDC) Centers for Disease Control website. Abortion is definitely a moral issue dealing with murder (see Matt. 5:21-22, Rev. 21:8, Exo. 20:13).

Furthermore, research suggests that many of the ingredients in vaccines may be toxic – even carcinogenic in some cases. Therefore, even if we should wholly bar the topic of abortion, we must also ask ourselves if we are being good stewards of our bodies and/or our children’s bodies as the temple of the Holy Spirit? 1st Corinthians 6:19 states: Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

Before embarking upon my study of vaccines, I wondered why I felt such a compulsion and zeal to write about/study this topic? Afterall, I used to get the flu shot every year. A few years ago, I stopped getting the flu shot after a horrible reaction. Still, I never felt the need to try to coerce others to abstain from vaccines… until lately.

As I stated above, I am not intending to take the place of your physician nor am I stating that vaccines are completely ineffective – I am merely writing for one goal: To potentially help others by shedding light on this topic and to make the public aware of what hidden ingredients are in so-called “safe” vaccines, while taking a closer look at the moral implications, thereof.

My blog stands for truth (see John 8:32) – therefore, I feel a moral obligation to make others aware of my findings. I have spent many hours researching and would feel remiss if I remained silent. It is for these aforementioned reasons that I have decided to tackle this very touchy and very complex topic. This is a lengthy read with a lot of information, so it may be best read in sections (like chapters of a book).

The Great Vaccine Debate

Writing on a subject so exhaustive as this takes a lot of research, time, and prayer. I want to present a factually-based blog and let my readers prayerfully decide what they feel is best. With so many different angles and views in this “Great Vaccine Debate” (as I’m calling it), I want to be fair to both sides while maintaining a push for what is right, morally-speaking. So, allow me to begin by stating both sides of this debate.

On one side you have the people that are pro-vaccines (pro-vaxxers), and on the other side you have those who are against vaccines (anti-vaxxers). Somewhere in the middle, there is an undecided subset of people that can see valid points from both sides of this debate. I may use the terms “pro-vaxxer” and “anti-vaxxer” in this blog to describe the two opposing sides. I am not using the terms in a derogatory manner, but simply to differentiate the two sides.

When writing about a topic with so many twists and turns, it can become mind-boggling and challenging to keep everything concise yet thorough. It also poses a challenge to know where to start and where to end. So, I suppose we will just dive into this topic and expound as needed.

Do Vaccines Really Contain Aborted Fetuses?

Pediatrician, Dr. Paul Offit, is a pro-vaxxer, co-inventor of the Rotavirus vaccine, and one of the more vocal supporters of vaccines. However, even he admits that some of the vaccines used today still contain aborted fetal material. In a video posted on the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia website, he stated the following:

“One question some parents are concerned about is whether or not vaccines are made using fetal cells – and the answer to that question is, YES! There are a few vaccines that are made that way.”

He goes on to list the vaccines which use the aborted fetal cells such as:

~Varicella (Chicken Pox) Vaccine

~Hepatitis A Vaccine

~Shingles Vaccine

~Rubella Vaccine

~Rabies Vaccine

 

He failed to mention a few other abortion-tainted vaccines such as:

~MMRII Vaccine (Measles, Mumps, Rubella combo)

~HIB Vaccine (Influenza Type B)

~Adenovirus Vaccine

~Diphtheria Vaccine

~Hepatitis B Vaccine

~Pertussis Vaccine

~Tetanus Vaccine

~Polio Vaccine

All of the above-mentioned vaccines are still utilized even though they contain known aborted fetal cell DNA.

Dr. Offit explains that viral vaccines are grown in cells. The aborted fetal cells for some of the vaccines were obtained in the 1960s from two elective abortions (one in England, one in Sweden). These cells have been reproduced to create the vaccines of the past and the ones we have today.

When aborted fetuses are used in vaccines, the package insert which lists the ingredients for the vaccine, will not state it so blatantly. Rather, phrasing such as “human diploid cells”, “recombinant human albumin”, “cellular proteins”, etc. are used; and codes such as “MRC-5”, “WI-38”, etc. are also utilized. The MRC-5 represents an electively aborted male at 14-weeks gestation whose lung tissue is utilized in many vaccines. The WI-38 represents an electively aborted female at 3-months gestation whose lung tissue is also utilized. Other codes you may see are: IMR-90, RA27/3, PERC6, or HEK293.

CDC website listing vaccine ingredients (I placed boxes around a few examples of aborted fetal cells in certain vaccines. There are more which contain such; this is just a small sampling.)

There is also mounting evidence that more aborted fetuses were used for research and development such as the “Walvax-2”, which was derived from a 3-month-old fetus. The Walvax-2 is being considered for manufacturing, as well as additional aborted fetuses used in Zika Virus research.

The Glaxo SmithKline package insert for the Hepatitis A Vaccine states, in part:

“Havrix (Hepatitis A Vaccine, Inactivated) is a noninfectious hepatitis A vaccine developed and manufactured by SmithKline Beecham Biologicals. The virus (strain HM175) is propagated in MRC5 human diploid cells.”

This is just one example from Glaxo SmithKline, but we find other companies using aborted fetal cells in their vaccines such as: Barr Labs Inc., Lilly, Merck & Co., Sanofi Pasteur, and Novartis. There may be others, but these are the ones I could pin down in my research. Even Merck, a major pharmaceutical company, admits there are aborted fetal cells in many of their vaccines. Furthermore, anybody can go to the official CDC website and read the vaccine ingredients for themselves and see that many do, indeed, contain aborted fetal cells and other surprising ingredients (more on this later).

In a response letter to the Executive Director for Children of God for Life, Debra Vinnedge, a representative with Merck’s Vaccine Division, Eileen M. Dolick, writes the following:

“Several of Merck’s current vaccines are developed in human diploid cell lines, as you mentioned. Human diploid cells are used to prepare vaccines against other serious or fatal diseases as well, including polio and rabies. We use these cell lines because they are the best science has to offer in terms of producing a safe and effective vaccine against certain diseases. Varicella (chicken pox) virus, for example, grows in a limited range of cells–human and guinea pig. After 28 years of research and clinical trials, Merck scientists determined that the most effective vaccine to prevent varicella is produced in the former.”

We also see, there is a more recent aborted fetal cell line, “PERC6”, which was developed in 1985 and is currently used in research to develop vaccines to treat Ebola and HIV. The origin of PERC6 is clearly documented. In direct testimony before the (FDA) Food and Drug Administration’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee, Dr. Alex Van Der Eb, the scientist who developed PERC6, stated:

“So I isolated retina [cells] from a fetus, from a healthy fetus as far as could be seen, of 18 weeks old. There was nothing special in the family history, and the pregnancy was completely normal up to the 18 weeks; and it turned out to be a socially indicated abortus, abortus provocatus, and that was simply because the woman wanted to get rid of the fetus.”

Currently several vaccines using the PERC6 cell line are in development. Undoubtedly, the cells used to establish PERC6 came from a healthy baby, aborted by a healthy mother for social convenience reasons. In a paper published on PubMed.gov, it states: “The use of fetal tissue from elective abortions is commonplace in the pharmaceutical industry and in medical research.”

Many people are calling for the aborted fetal cells to be removed from the vaccines and an alternative to be used. But, (aforementioned Pediatrician) Dr. Paul Offit said, “…to remove human fibroblast cells entirely from vaccines is out of the question…” since human viruses don’t grow well in animal cells. However, there are still a few vaccines which utilize animal cells, also.

Kyle Christopher McKenna, PhD., who is an associate professor of Biology at Franciscan University of Steubenville writes the following:

So yes, expert proponents and opponents to vaccines can agree on this one fact – many of the vaccines we have on the market today do, indeed, contain aborted fetal cells.

What Else Do Vaccines Contain?

Not only do we run into a moral issue with fetal manufactured vaccines, but there may also be more reasons why parents opt-out of vaccinating their children or themselves. Loving parents feel a moral obligation to protect their children to the best of their ability, since they are a gift from God. Children are indeed a heritage from the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is His reward” (Ps. 127:3).  However, it’s not only childhood vaccines that are in question.

Many of the flu vaccines used nowadays contain very toxic chemicals and surprisingly odd ingredients such as: Shark liver cells (squalene), Formaldehyde (a known carcinogen – capable of causing cancer), Armyworm cell proteins (Spodoptera frugiperda), Cocker Spaniel kidney cell protein (MDCK), Thimerosal (a potential toxin at certain levels), Pig gelatin (Porcine), and such.

Even many of the childhood vaccines and vaccines suggested for pregnant women (such as DTaP) contain Formaldehyde which is carcinogenic. Likewise, they also contain Aluminum which has been scientifically-proven to be toxic to the embryo in animal models and a neurotoxin to humans. The more Aluminum, the greater the risk of adverse neurotoxic effects (children born in the US are the highest vaccinated in the entire world). The vast majority of all vaccines contain Aluminum, in some form.

As mentioned above, DNA cells from animals are also utilized in a variety of vaccines. Some may take issue with this due to the Bible’s prohibition of consuming animal blood. It seems the primary cause, among other reasons, for abstaining from consuming animal blood was/is that it can cause disease. Although we are not eating the vaccine ingredients, some may feel uncomfortable mingling animal blood with human blood.

In the Old Testament, consuming blood was met with severe punishment. Leviticus 17:10 states: And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, that eateth any manner of blood, I will set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people.”

In the New Testament, a letter was written to the Gentile Believers in Antioch. In part, it stated that they must abstain from blood. It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to burden you with anything beyond these essential requirements: You must abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals, and from sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid these things. Farewell” (Acts 15:28,29).

Suffice it to say that there is much controversy over the ingredients and/or preservatives used in vaccines such as: aluminum, neomycin, glyphosate, MSG, antibiotics, Thimerosol/ ethyl mercury, Vero cells (African green monkey), and more.

Do Vaccines Actually Cause Health Problems?

The primary argument of pro-vaxxers is that vaccines are safe and protect against illness. But, at what cost? And, are the potential side effects, and known toxic chemicals contained therein, worth the risk? It stands to reason that vaccines are not the only way to protect against illness.

Merck (a global healthcare company and vaccine manufacturer) even admits that no vaccine can result in 100% effectiveness for all vaccinees. Let’s look at just a few vaccines, for example purposes.

Influenza Vaccine:

The flu (Influenza) vaccine greatly varies in effectiveness since there is no way to emphatically predict which strain of flu will circulate in any given year. The non-profit organization, National Vaccine Information Center, reported a few studies in regards to flu vaccines. One was a Canadian study published in 2015. This study found the effectiveness of the flu vaccine decreased when a person received the shot two years in a row. Another study looked at adults hospitalized for the flu. In these individuals, the flu vaccine’s effectiveness against the H3N2 strain was reported at -43% (negative forty-three percent). NVIC states: “A negative percentage indicates that persons who were vaccinated with the 2018-2019 seasonal flu vaccine were more likely to be hospitalized for flu, than those who were not.”

Cochrane, a research website unconstrained by commercial or financial interests, reported that vaccinated adults over the age of 65 only have a slightly lowered risk of Influenza (from 6% to 2.4%); but, they readily admit that the evidence for this “lower risk” was limited by biases from the outside studies they looked at. Cochrane stated that such available evidence provided “no clear guidance for public health regarding the safety, efficacy, or effectiveness of influenza vaccines for people aged 65 years or older.” Another Cochrane study review found that healthy adults who were vaccinated only had a lower influenza risks by 2% down to just under 1%; but also stated: “Vaccines increase the risk of a number of adverse events…”

Founder of the Vaccine Course Organization, André Angelantoni, writes the following:

vq2

Angelantoni also writes about the biggest risk associated with the flu shot… Guillain- Barré Syndrome, which causes paralysis (most times temporary but sometimes permanent). He writes, “There are lots of other ways the flu shot causes the body to attack itself… Saying that repeated immune activation has nothing to do with the body eventually learning to attack itself [as in autoimmune diseases] is absurd on its face. In reality, it doesn’t matter whether the activation is naturally caused or artificially caused. Each activation increases the risk of the body learning to attack itself. It [the influenza vaccine] is the most compensated vaccine injury in the United States National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.”

(MMR) Measles, Mumps, Rubella Vaccine:

The MMRII vaccine, which contains a live virus, toxic chemicals, and aborted fetal cells, can cause significant adverse events such as: atypical measles, encephalitis, deafness, pneumonia, diabetes mellitus, seizures/convulsions, subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, neurologic disorders, aseptic meningitis, and renal failure. Independent research has also linked the MMR vaccine to Autism (more on this later).

Earlier this year, Maine’s first case of measles since 2017 was reported in Somerset County. Even though the CDC confirmed that the child was vaccinated, he/she still became ill with the measles. Likewise, a Utah boy, Finn Price, became ill with the mumps even though he was up to date on his vaccines.

As of 2015, the CDC and VAERS data showed no deaths, in over a decade, from people who had the measles (disease); however, there were over 100 deaths reported during this time linked to the measles vaccine. More recently, that number has risen to 500 deaths and approximately 100,000 adverse events from the MMR vaccine reported to VAERS. Bear in mind, this number may be modest as a very small percentage of vaccine injuries are actually reported and accounted for by VAERS. By this, it is clear that the measles vaccine poses more of a risk than the measles itself.

Hepatitis B Vaccine:

One of the very first vaccines given to newborns immediately after birth is the Hepatitis B vaccine. This vaccine was designed to protect against STD’s (sexually transmitted diseases) and can offer some protection against infected needles used in illicit drug use or tattoos.

Some of the more serious potential side effects of the Hepatitis B vaccine include: Multiple Sclerosis, Seizures, Lupus, and anaphylaxis. Mind you, this is just a sampling of its potential dangers. Furthermore, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends patients be monitored 15-minutes after a Hepatitis B vaccine to make sure they won’t have an acute adverse reaction or syncope (fainting).

Below, you will find some alarming statistics by VaxTruth.org:

~Healthy, full-term United-States-born infants are at INCREASED risk of DYING between 1 month and 1 year of age. [Most of which receive the Hepatitis B vaccine.]

~Infants born in other countries (Sweden, Norway, Japan, Finland, Switzerland, Denmark), who have an increased probability of living past their first birthday, do NOT receive the Hepatitis B Vaccine. 

~The Hepatitis B Vaccine contains 225 micrograms of aluminum! That is nearly 10 times the amount allowed by the FDA to be given to ADULTS over a 24-hour period in IV medications. 

Rotavirus Vaccine:

The very first vaccine given for rotavirus had to be withdrawn because it caused intussusception. This is a life-threatening illness where the bowel folds and becomes obstructed. Even with the current rotavirus vaccine, there is still a small risk of intussusception. Even though the original vaccine was withdrawn, the damage was done. Who is to say that the current rotavirus vaccine couldn’t be recalled at some point, as well? Even if the vaccine does not cause intussusception, it has possible side effects of vomiting and diarrhea – exactly what the vaccine is supposed to prevent. It seems senseless to take a vaccine or any medication that actually causes what it is supposed to be preventing. What’s more, the rotavirus vaccine sheds for weeks after it is given and could possibly spread to the parents or siblings of the vaccinated child.

Smallpox Vaccine:

The vaccine for smallpox is no longer routinely given, but is still available for certain individuals. It has been notoriously dangerous for pregnant women as it can cause stillbirth. Furthermore, the CDC recommends that people with health conditions (even something as mild as eczema) should not receive the vaccine or even be in the same house with someone who receives it! Accidentally touching the site of the vaccine can easily spread smallpox since the vaccine contains a live virus (the US vaccine). It can even be spread to oneself. The site of the vaccine is often itchy – therefore, if a person scratches where the vaccine was given and then rubs their eyes or another part of the body, they can spread the live virus over their own body!

DTaP Vaccine:

According to the CDC, the DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis) vaccine has the potential to cause long-term seizures, coma, permanent brain damage, or a fever over 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Yet, such a vaccine is recommended (even pushed, in some cases) for pregnant women to receive!

Shingles Vaccine:

One of the vaccines for shingles, Zostavax (manufactured by Merck & Co/parent company Bayer AG), has been at the center of over 50 lawsuits, according to Tor Hoerman Law, LLC, and is part of a multi-district litigation (MDL).

This law office states that Zostavax only works in about 50% of patients and has caused serious injuries such as “blindness, hearing loss, paralysis, brain damage, and fatal liver failure.” Tor Hoerman Law, LLC also reports that, “Yes – this shingles vaccine will likely cause you to contract shingles.”

Subsequently, a Zostavax vaccine label change was required in 2011; nonetheless, this very dangerous vaccine is still on the market. Furthermore, if patients were to read the fine print about this vaccine, they would find (on Merck’s dedicated vaccine website, merckvaccines.com) that “transmission of vaccine virus may occur between vaccinees and susceptible contacts.”        

HPV Vaccine:

The HPV (Human Papillomavirus) Vaccine was designed to protect against the Human Papillomavirus which is a sexually transmitted disease. However, there have been thousands of reports of adverse effects from this vaccine which have caused permanent damage to some individuals (and even death).

Christina Tarsell was a 21-year-old woman who received the HPV vaccine, Gardasil (manufactured by Merck), and died a few days thereafter. Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld and Dr. Michael Eldar determined that Christina died from an arrhythmia which was an autoimmune response to the HPV vaccine. Christina’s mother, Emily Tarsell, had enough evidence to prove to The United States Court of Federal Claims that the vaccine was the cause of her daughter’s sudden death. In part, the court document reads:

“Ultimately, because of the finding that Christina began to experience arrhythmia after her HPV vaccination, Ms. Tarsell has presented preponderant evidence of a logical sequence of cause and effect, connecting the HPV vaccination to the ensuing arrhythmia.”

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Generally-speaking, Pharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs concluded the following: “Our study suggests that HPV vaccines containing HPV-16L1 antigens pose an inherent risk for triggering potentially fatal autoimmune vasculopathies.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., nephew of President John F. Kennedy, Activist, Attorney, Executive Producer (of the movie, “Vaxxed II”), and Founder of the non-profit organization, Children’s Health Defense, states: “…nobody in the world would ever, who has any concern for a little girl, would ever give them this [HPV] vaccine.” He continues, “This vaccine gives you cancer, if you’ve already been exposed.”

 

Autism, SIDS & More:

Many have questioned whether or not vaccines could be to blame for Autism, SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), and/or other severe childhood illnesses. The Children’s Health Defense posted a report showing an increase in childhood chronic illness as the number of vaccines increase. In 1986, there were a total of 7 routine vaccines given (in 24 doses) and 12.8% of children with chronic illness. However, in 2019, there are 16 routine vaccines given (in 72 doses) and a huge increase in childhood chronic illness of 54%.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (also known as ASD or Autism) is a neurologic disability. We have also seen that certain chemicals used in vaccines, namely aluminum and Thimerosal, are neurotoxins. In his book, Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. writes about the “…broad consensus among research scientists that Thimerosal is a dangerous neurotoxin.” He also spoke at the Autism One Conference about vaccine safety and his closing remarks were, “What are we doing to the children in this country?”

Many believe that there is a direct link between certain vaccines and the increase in Autism. The website cogforlife.org states: “Would it surprise you to know that prior to the introduction of the MMR vaccine that was produced using aborted fetal cell lines, the rate of autism in the United States was 1 in 10,000?  Would it surprise you to learn that the dates coinciding with vaccine mandates state by state also coincide with a rise in autism?  In 1995 another spike in autism rate surged.  Why?  The chickenpox vaccine, which uses aborted fetal cell lines was introduced to the US market that same year.  Would it surprise you to learn that in other countries, the same spikes in autism correlate to the introduction of aborted fetal vaccines?” 

As of 2017, Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute found a direct link between human fetal manufactured vaccines and autism. Their study did, indeed, show a link between the two. Their findings demonstrated “ecologic, epidemiologic, biologic and dose-dependent associations between human fetal manufactured vaccines and autism.”

vaxcensorautism

Professor Chris Exley and Dr. Andrew Wakefield are two of the better-known researchers who have claimed that the MMR vaccine causes Autism. The CDC claims that the MMR vaccine does not cause Autism. However, we must also consider that the CDC has a vested interest in protecting the MMR vaccine since they benefit financially from the sales thereof (more on this later).

Toxicologist, Ashley Everly, reported the following (summarized):

~Autistic children are known to accumulate/harbor aluminum.

~Aluminum is a neurotoxic metal. When it reaches the brain, it tends to be deposited in the cerebellum.

~The cerebellum is the most frequently disrupted brain region of individuals with autism.

~Aluminum is an ingredient in many pediatric vaccines: Hep B, Hep A, DTaP, pneumococcal, Hib…

~We do NOT readily excrete injected aluminum. In one study it was found that 94% of the aluminum injected via vaccine/intramuscular injection remains in the body after 28 days.

~We are repeatedly injecting babies with neurotoxic levels of aluminum on day one of birth (more or less neurotoxic depending on the child), then every two months until 6 months, during the most critical neurodevelopmental phases of their lives, and beyond.

~The amount of aluminum in vaccines has risen dramatically since the 80s, along with autism rates.

~While our own federal government refuses to perform a study comparing the health of vaccinated children to unvaccinated children, they have financially compensated families of previously healthy and normally developing children who regressed into autism following vaccines via the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

~Another study found that 98% of autistic individuals have at least one MTHFR mutation – which means they struggle to detoxify and eliminate neurotoxic substances like aluminum from the body, much more than individuals who do not have this mutation.

~MTHFR mutations have been linked to an increased risk of adverse events from vaccines, in at least one study.

You can read more of Ashley Everly’s reports and articles by clicking HERE.

In regards to the MTHFR gene mutation, I would like to add one more thought.

Let me briefly define MTHFR. These initials are short for a very long medical term: “Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase”. The MTHFR gene mutation can be found in over 40% of individuals. That means those with the MTHFR gene mutation may not be able to properly break down/process or detox from the toxic ingredients found in vaccines. MTHFR mutations are not routinely tested for and require specific genetic testing; therefore, how would a parent know if their child has this mutation on the first day of its life when the first vaccine is given??

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome:

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS, has been reported by countless parents within hours or a few days after their infant was vaccinated.

vaxSIDScdcform

The form used for SIDS victims as listed on the CDC website. Notice item 4 (which I placed a box around to highlight).

Circle of Mamas is a website that brings awareness to vaccine injuries in infants and children. On a recently published article, a very valid point was brought out: “Not every person who gets a vaccine will experience a recognizable vaccine injury, but that doesn’t mean vaccine injuries are rare, or don’t happen. We know they happen.”

vaxcircleofmamas2DTAP

SIDS listed as a possible side effect… that means DEATH is a known side effect of this vaccine, yet it is still administered! This drug is also known in the U.S. as Pentacel.

The following infant deaths were reported shortly after vaccinations:

  • Evee Clobes died 36 hours after 6 vaccines, in two shots, one of them a 5-in-one.
  • Remy died the same night as his 2-month shots, where he received 8 vaccines total.
  • Nicholas Catone died 17 days after one Dtap, at 18 months old.
  • Gemma died 5 days after her 2 month check up.
  • Madilynn received her 8-week shots, was screaming/fussy, and died the next morning.
  • Malcolm died 7 hours after his first immunizations at 2 months old.
  • Donovan died 4 days after his 2-month shots, which were even a little late.
  • Rory died just 5 days after her past-due shots at 9.5 months old.
  • Berit died less than 48 hours of his 2-month shots.
  • Corbyn was 13 months old and died 14 hours after a flu shot.
  • Vida died 7 days after her 4-month shots.
  • Remi Rose died less than 48 hours of a Hep B vaccine she received at 19 days old.
  • Kia died suddenly 6 days after his 2 month vaccines.
  • Amiah died less than 21 hours after her a Dtap shot she got at 15 months old.
  • Michael Whitesell (age 1) died three days after getting four shots in October of 2015.
  • Matthew Gage Downing-Powers (5 1/2 mos. old) died less than two days after receiving vaccines against eight diseases in October 2013.
  • Zara Antoinette Shiel (15 mos. old) passed away in her sleep the day after receiving her scheduled 15-month vaccinations in November 2014. 
  • Lucas Annikan Cage Shull (6 mos. old) passed away in his sleep of SIDS a few days after getting his very first round of vaccinations in February 2018.
  • Healthy Babies Don’t Just Die

(Infant deaths listed above was reported by Circle of Mamas. Also see HERE for more parents who say their children were destroyed by vaccines).

Religious Views on Vaccines

Although this blog does not endorse or promote Catholicism, we can agree with their belief that abortion is sin. For research purposes, let’s look into what the Catholic view is on vaccines – since many vaccines contain human aborted fetal cells, and pose moral concerns.

Dr. Offit, as previously mentioned, states that some Catholics have questioned vaccines being created by aborted fetal cells as a moral issue, since abortion is a sin worthy of ex-communication within Catholicism. However, he assures Catholics that Pope Benedict XVI ruled on this issue by basically saying that, although it was unfortunate the aborted fetal cells were chosen to make certain vaccines, it was still justifiable to give such vaccines to their children. By this, it seems that the Catholic church has changed or loosened its previous stricter view.

Around the year 2005, the Pontifical Academy for Life produced a study on the topic of aborted fetal cells in vaccines. In part, the study states that such vaccines…

“do not cease to pose ethical problems.” And asks these thought-provoking questions: “If someone rejects every form of voluntary abortion of human fetuses, would such a person not contradict himself/herself by allowing the use of these vaccines of live attenuated viruses on their children? Would it not be a matter of true (and illicit) cooperation in evil, even though this evil was carried out forty years ago?”

Furthermore, it names three categories of evil. “In the specific case under examination, there are three categories of people who are involved in the cooperation in evil; evil which is obviously represented by the action of a voluntary abortion performed by others: a) those who prepare the vaccines using human cell lines coming from voluntary abortions; b) those who participate in the mass marketing of such vaccines; c) those who need to use them for health reasons.”

We find that the basic summary of this entire study by the Pontifical Academy for Life is this:

“-there is a grave responsibility to use alternative vaccines and to make a conscientious objection with regard to those which have moral problems;

– as regards the vaccines without an alternative, the need to contest so that others may be prepared must be reaffirmed, as should be the lawfulness of using the former in the meantime insomuch as is necessary in order to avoid a serious risk not only for one’s own children but also, and perhaps more specifically, for the health conditions of the population as a whole – especially for pregnant women;

– the lawfulness of the use of these vaccines should not be misinterpreted as a declaration of the lawfulness of their production, marketing and use, but is to be understood as being a passive material cooperation and, in its mildest and remotest sense, also active, morally justified as an extrema ratio due to the necessity to provide for the good of one’s children and of the people who come in contact with the children (pregnant women);

– such cooperation occurs in a context of moral coercion of the conscience of parents, who are forced to choose to act against their conscience or otherwise, to put the health of their children and of the population as a whole at risk. This is an unjust alternative choice, which must be eliminated as soon as possible.”

Whether we agree whole-heartedly with the above-mentioned study or not, we find one truth screaming at us… using vaccines with known aborted fetal material in them poses a huge moral issue for many.

Most Christians would consider abortion to be a sin (murder) which has lasting consequences for the one who chooses such as well as the unborn child. As commentator Matthew Henry once wrote: “If we dishonour God with that which is our honour, it will, sooner or later, be turned into shame to us.” However, for the woman who deeply regrets her decision to abort – there is forgiveness through Christ (see 1st Corinthians 6:11).

Mandates and Religious Exemptions

In times past, it was not revealed to most parents that their children’s vaccines contained aborted fetal cells, as well as other harmful ingredients. The vaccine schedule for times past, even as recent as the 1980’s, was not as exhaustive as it is nowadays. We find childhood chronic illness rising as the number of childhood vaccines rise. No matter which camp you identify with, pro-vaxxers or anti-vaxxers, it is of utmost importance to do your research.

Parents who decide that vaccines just aren’t right for their child may face many obstacles. Firstly, many public schools will not allow a child to attend without proof of immunizations. Also, there are a few Pediatricians who refuse to accept patients who abstain from vaccines. There are many other obstacles that anti-vax parents must face such as bullying, medical/peer-pressure, being misunderstood and called “irresponsible parents”, “uneducated”, or “flat-earthers”. The bullies suppose anti-vaxxers believe the earth is flat and not round; insinuating that they are conspiracy theorists. In reality, the vast majority of anti-vax parents are well-studied, highly responsible, and merely doing what they feel is best for the well-being of their child.

Such treatment is not only a problem for parents, but also a problem for many adults with no children. In many professions, namely the healthcare industry, there is a possibility that employees can get fired (laid off) from their job due to vaccine-abstinence. Vaccines are also mandated in the military.

v3Mandate

Threats from the FDA about possibly mandating vaccines

It is unclear if vaccines will be mandated for all in the future, but as it stands now, there is still the right (in most states) to obtain a religious exemption. According to Tampa Bay Times, there has been a large increase in people obtaining religious exemptions for vaccines. It was reported that “between 2011 and 2018, religious exemptions shot up each year from about 6,500 students to almost 25,000 — an increase of about 375 percent over those years.”

Political Views on Abortion and Vaccines

We find that abortion is also a political issue – even more so now. This is why vaccines are such a hot topic – because many of them contain aborted fetal DNA which raises the topic of pro-life and pro-choice which has been highly politicalized.

_I’ve noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born._

Former President, Ronald Reagan, once said, Each year, remarkable advances in prenatal medicine bring even more dramatic confirmation of what common sense has told us all along: that the child in the womb is simply what each of us once was, a very young, very small, dependent, and very vulnerable live member of the human family.”  President Reagan was also quoted as saying, “I’ve noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born.”

Former President, John F. Kennedy, supported the polio vaccine and signed the Vaccination Assistance Act. However, one of the leading voices and advocates for safer vaccine practices nowadays is his nephew, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who writes the following:

In addition to vaccines being a health, religious, and political issue, they are also a governmental and legal issue in the United States. Our government websites (such as CDC.gov, FDA.gov, etc.) seem to support and even push vaccination. Yet, we also have vaccine injury court, Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), and legislation in certain states questioning vaccine safety.

Most recently, the state of Texas set forth a bill to be enacted by the Legislature of the state to amend a health and safety code in regards to vaccines. This Act was to take effect on September 1, 2019. The Act stated that administration of certain vaccines be prohibited unless they met certain guidelines set forth. In short, a few of the guidelines mentioned were:

*The vaccine had to be evaluated for safety against a control group receiving a placebo.

*There needed to be a sufficient time to study the vaccine to identify possible autoimmune, neurological, or chronic health conditions that may arise from the vaccine.

*The vaccine needed to be evaluated for its potential to cause cancer, mutate genes, affect fertility or cause infertility, cause Autism Spectrum Disorder.

*Any findings of injuries, diseases, chemical, pharmacological, therapeutic, and adverse effects from the vaccine should be disclosed on the department’s website.

What Does the Bible Say?

We know that vaccines, as such, did not exist during the time when the Bible was written. Nonetheless, the use of drugs is mentioned in the Bible.

Of note, the Bible speaks of the future fall of Babylon (evil) in Revelation 18:23. “…For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived.” It is quite intriguing that the word used in this scripture, “sorcery”, actually is derived from the original Greek word “pharmakeia” (which is where we get the English words, “pharmacy, pharmacist, and pharmaceutical”). The definition for the word, “pharmakeia” from the Strong’s Concordance is: “the use of medicine, drugs, or spells.” It is further explained by HELPS Word-Studies as: “pharmakeía (from pharmakeuō, “administer drugs”) – properly, drug-related sorcery, like the practice of magical-arts, etc.”

Galatians 5:19-21 also mentions the word “sorcery” which is derived from the same original Greek word, “pharmakeia”. “Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Vincent’s Word Studies expounds on sorceries: “From φάρμακον a drug, and thence a poison, an enchantment.”

Without going into an exhaustive side study on this topic alone, I cannot comment as to all of the implications and meanings of this. Nonetheless, I felt it note-worthy to mention since we are speaking of drugs/vaccines in this post.

Money, Money, Money!

If vaccines are unsafe, why are they still available?

It seems the answer to the above-stated question can be answered in four words…

THE

LOVE

OF

MONEY

The Bible states in 1st Timothy 6:11, “For the love of money is the root of all evil…”

The pharmaceutical industry is a proverbial money-making machine. For instance, Merck (a global healthcare company/vaccine manufacturer) reported a 2018 revenue of $42.3 billion! That’s not to mention other “Big Pharma” companies, organizations, etc. We also find astronomical price gouging on many prescription medications. By in large, the pharmaceutical industry can be quite greedy. When there is anything that might pose a potential threat to their financial income, they will attack it. The attacks can be in the form of media censorship (or censoring free speech), cover-ups, counter-attack ads, lies, industry-funded biased studies, scare-tactics, and more.

In order for the larger entities to be protected from devastating lawsuits, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) was put into place. Even the NVICP website admits the program was “created in the 1980s, after lawsuits against vaccine companies and health care providers threatened to cause vaccine shortages and reduce U.S. vaccination rates…”

The Children’s Vaccine Initiative book echoes this statement by stating that the program removes, “most of the liability burden from manufacturers for immunization-related injuries…” What’s more, the NVICP has a cap on how much they will pay out. Even if it can be proven that a death was related to a vaccine, there is a limit of $250,000 compensation, and the vaccine may remain on the market.

As far back as the late 1980s, there were so many NVICP cases of vaccine injuries pending that the processing time for claims had to be extended; imagine how many more claims have been adding up since that time! Children’s Health Defense states that “anywhere from 4,500 to perhaps 45,000 serious vaccine injuries occur every year in the United States.” Even still, injuries are under-reported and the NVICP doesn’t play fair in compensating those who are/were vaccine-injured. Former Chief Special Master, Gary Golkiewicz, said, “[The government] has a vested interest in vaccines being good. It doesn’t take a mental giant to see the fundamental unfairness in this.”

According to Children’s Health Defense, there is a $4 billion “budget for federal vaccine promotion and development.” Additionally, vaccine promotion is funded by The Gates Foundation. As you may know, Bill Gates is the founder of Microsoft and is among the wealthiest in America. The National Vaccine Information Center reports that The Gates Foundation is the largest philanthropic foundation in the world with a $43.5 billion trust. One of the primary goals of this foundation is to make certain that “every child in the world is vaccinated.”

In 2015, an undercover video was released claiming that Planned Parenthood was profiting off of sales from aborted fetal tissue. Of course, they have denied this charge. But as we have seen, aborted fetal tissue is in high demand since it is used for research purposes and utilized in some vaccines.

PBS reported the following:

“From 2011 through 2014 alone, 97 research institutions — mostly universities and hospitals — received a total of $280 million in federal grants for fetal tissue research from the National Institutes of Health. A few institutions have consistently gotten large shares of that money, including Yale, the University of California and Massachusetts General Hospital, which is affiliated with Harvard.”

Marketing Lies

As stated earlier, when there is anything that might pose a potential threat to the vaccine industry and their financial income, they go on the attack. In this section, we will briefly cover some of their strategies.

It would take an entire book to cover every single lie told by some of the major pharmaceutical companies. For the sake of time and space, we will just cover a few.

For starters, Tor Hoerman Law office handled a multi-district lawsuit against Zostavax, a shingles vaccine. This lawsuit alleges that “Merck & CO became aware that the vaccine could cause patients to contract shingles during its premarket approval trials but failed to list shingles as a possible side effect until December 2014, nearly seven years after it was approved by the FDA.” Could this also be the case with other vaccines on the market?

Speaking of Merck, it was reported by CBS News that Merck executives had created a “hit list” in 1999 of doctors who were critical of one of their products, Vioxx. Even though this drug was not a vaccine (but a pain killer; since taken off the market), this example is merely to show the hidden behavior behind some of the largest pharmaceutical companies. In regards to this case, one Merck email stated: “We may need to seek them [opposing doctors/researchers] out and destroy them where they live …”

Merck’s goal was also to discredit opposing doctors. The lawyer for the Plaintiffs said: “It gives you the dark side of the use of key opinion leaders and thought leaders … if (they) say things you don’t like to hear, you have to neutralize them… It does suggest a certain culture within the organization about how to deal with your opponents and those who disagree with you.”

The CBS report further stated: “The allegations come on the heels of revelations that Merck created a fake medical journal — the Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine — in which to publish studies about Vioxx; had pop songs commissioned about Vioxx to inspire its staff, and paid ghostwriters to draft articles about the drug.“

In 2016, yet another bombshell came out against Merck – one of the world’s leading drug/vaccine manufacturers. The Los Angeles Times reported that “Merck lied in a patent trial” about a Hepatitis C drug and that they lied under oath. Federal Judge Beth Labson Freeman had the following remarks to make about Merck’s conduct (or lack thereof): “…systematic and outrageous deception in conjunction with unethical business practices and litigation misconduct.” If they have lied before, what is to stop them from doing it again?

We have also seen some shadiness this year with the licensing of the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine. Emmy-Award winner, Del Bigtree, brought attention to this matter recently on his medical news program, The HighWire.  Bigtree reported that government records showed the MMR vaccine was licensed “using an irresponsibly small and limited group of children.” Therefore, it was licensed on limited and corrupted data. Even though over half of the participants in the trial for the MMR reported upper respiratory infections and gastrointestinal symptoms, the FDA looked the other way and the symptoms were wrongly labeled as “other viruses”. Bigtree also said, “But what’s even more alarming is learning about the serious adverse events that were known and acknowledged, yet ignored in order to license the MMR vaccine.”

Restricting and Censoring the Truth

Earlier this year, GoFundMe (an online fundraising platform) announced they would no longer allow those who oppose vaccines to raise money on their website. A spokesman for the company stated that it went against their terms of service to promote “misinformation about vaccines”, even though the information may be accurate… just not readily accepted or popular.

v2pinterestcensor

Notice how it is automatically assumed that opponents to vaccines have “misinformation”?

We also find such censoring on popular social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, and Pinterest (perhaps other websites, but these are the ones I have confirmed). For example, there will be a supposed “fact check” under YouTube videos by anti-vaxxers or those exposing the dangers of vaccines (see screenshot image below from YouTube).

vaxcensor

Notice the “Vaccine controversies” disclaimer under the video? Ladies and gentlemen, this is censorship at it’s finest (insert sarcasm).

vfbcensor

Even more censorship and restrictions for those against vaccines

Biased, Favorable Marketing

Don’t be deceived… many large entities are in cahoots with one another and as the saying goes, “money talks”. Some media outlets are used to promote scare tactics of supposed outbreaks as to garner more business for vaccine manufacturers. The news used to be a factual way to obtain information and was free of opinion – not so any longer. The term “Fake News” is not so far-fetched. Outbreaks which have been reported by the media/news are mostly found to be small in number and caused by vaccine shedding – when a person gets a vaccine and sheds, sickening innocent bystanders (even some vaccinated bystanders).

vaxscaretactic

CDC using media for scare tactics

We also find mostly favorable reporting on vaccines and their safety. Why? Because many of these reports are actually funded by the vaccine manufacturers or those who will benefit financially from the sale of vaccines (see example HERE of a favorable report funded by the CDC.

Not only do financial beneficiaries fund vaccine studies/reports – they also receive acclaim in higher traffic websites (such as Google), and popular media outlets.

v1googlepush

Google media push to market vaccines

A PubMed report found “industry funded studies were published in more prestigious journals and cited more than other studies independently from methodological quality and size. Studies funded from public sources were significantly less likely to report conclusions favorable to the vaccines. The review showed that reliable evidence on influenza vaccines is thin but there is evidence of widespread manipulation of conclusions and spurious notoriety of the studies.”

Some Things to Consider

One of the arguments of pro-vaxxers is that vaccines are for the greater good and help lessen certain diseases. Perhaps vaccines did some good to an extent, but at what cost? Let us also consider other ways by which health (and the improvement thereof) have been achieved. Back when there were no vaccines, there were also poorer living conditions, more widespread poverty in America, lack of adequate nutrition, poor sanitation measures, and less medical research. Since that time, there have been new inventions that make life easier, thus, prolonging the span and quality of life to an extent.

There have also been other safe remedies discovered to treat common diseases. We find that Scurvy was effectively treated (and mostly eliminated in the US) with high doses of Vitamin C. There are other vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and foods that can facilitate healing and/or help with immunity. Since these advances coincided with the time in which vaccines were introduced, could it be possible that a percentage of disease-elimination was due to the advances and not entirely due to vaccines? Are vaccines getting too much credit? That’s not to say that they are altogether ineffective; but let’s also take the small benefit of them and compare to all of the other information presented. When all things are considered, is the risk of getting vaccines worth the small, non-guaranteed benefit of them? Could they be doing more harm than good? Can we, in clear conscience, inject our bodies with such ingredients?

It is my hope and prayer that this blog has shed light on this highly controversial topic. I also hope that it has brought education, yes, but mostly valuable insight for you and your family in your healthcare decisions. It could be a matter of life and death. Life is sacred, and I take this topic very seriously… will you?

5 responses to “VACCINES: A Moral Issue?

  1. […] Gates and his wife, Melinda, are the Founders of The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation who fund partners worldwide. Namely, the Foundation’s ‘Global Health Division’ develops “new tools and strategies” for healthcare and infectious disease in poor countries. They “…work with partners that can help to affect change globally, and then scale solutions to a local level” by developing “vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics.”  (See my post, “Vaccines: A Moral Issue?”)  […]

  2. Anti-Anti-Science Guy says:

    I hope you also get shut down. Years of conspiracy theories about “all the evil around us”… I don’t care. (Although it also promotes anti-science which we already have to much on Earth). But purposefully spreading misinformation about a much needed tool (vaccines) and brainwashing parents and risking epidemics and hundreds of thousands of lives because an insurgence of diseases which were under control until now thanks to vaccines, is completely unacceptable. Plus, you misuse religion in order to make your points. You need serious psychiatric help.

  3. Kimberly Dunn says:

    Very thorough and well researched! Thank you for writing this. I myself got sick from a tetanus shot and have chosen to receive no more vaccinations
