On Thursday November 14th, I attended the 2019 Vaccine Injury Epidemic (V.I.E.) Event on the National Mall in Washington DC. About 3000 of us gathered to raise awareness of vaccine injury and to remember the victims and families who live with vaccine injury and those who did not survive their vaccine injury. It was a powerful event with excellent speakers including doctors, scientists, lawmakers, attorneys, advocates, parents of vaccine injured and deceased children and members of the clergy, one of whom was Fr. Michael Copenhagen, a Catholic priest from Rochester, New York. I had recently read Restore Ye to Its Owners: on the immorality of receiving vaccines derived from abortion by Fr. Copenhagen; so I was thrilled when I heard him introduced. Listen below and please share the video and above document with others, including and especially with clergy and members of your church; and with those who believe there is no justification for a religious exemption to vaccines.
"There are many here who make compelling scientific and personal cases, I'm here to make a religious and moral case for Catholics and for all to hear."
“Most people are misinformed about actual church teaching on the issue of immorally produced fetal cell lines; those obtained through the taking of innocent human life and the stolen DNA present in many mandated vaccines…The result is that Catholics are unrepresented in a moral fight that is ours by right and by duty. Everywhere I see faithful Catholics numbingly going against the instincts of conscience because they are convinced that the Church has given an unconditional green light to the use of these cell lines. Let’s set the record straight...”

Click here to read the 2005 Vatican document to which Fr. Copenhagen refers.
Also read the Children of God for Life document, "Aborted Fetal Material Used in Vaccines and Medicines", which answers the question "How many abortions were involved in vaccines?" This document gives the facts – the direct link to the abortions involved, the cell lines created and footnote hyperlinks directly to the science documents describing their work.
“No one is bound to participate in one sin in order to avoid another. It is never permissible to do evil for a good purpose.”

One year ago today, Haleigh Jenna Golden, a 20 year old senior at the University of Cincinnati College of Arts and Sciences, tragically passed away as a result of a vaccine related seizure.
Below is a compilation of posts shared by Haleigh's mother, Rishanne Golden over the last several months...
Haleigh Jenna Golden
July 29, 1998 - November 6, 2018
"We lost our precious and vibrant daughter to a pediatrician recommended vaccine in preparation for college. All of our lives, we unfortunately blindly trusted what we have been told and thought we were protecting our children. Little did we know these neurotoxic vaccines have been continually harming our girls."
"Tragically, our gorgeous 18 year old began having seizures after receiving the meningitis vaccination and after learning what happened while working in functional/naturopathic medicine, we began a protocol to slowly detox our beautiful Bearcat! Haleigh so wanted to live the life she deserved and she walked with such courage and positivity and choose to utilize a great number of support tools in order to recognize healing, all while trying to enjoy her life as a college student."
"Making progress, we unexpectedly and tragically lost our sweet girl November 6, 2018. Both of our girls are the absolute light in our life, and the very beats in our hearts, and we are all beyond devastated with the loss of our child and only sister. Knowing her injury and passing was absolutely senseless, completely preventable and occurred only because of the corruption, greed and fraud behind this evil agenda deeply adds to our agonizing pain."
"Our daughter was an amazing young lady! She was kind, generous, funny and so dedicated to learning. Haleigh was a double major/double minor graduating in 3 years from the University of Cincinnati and she loved being a UC student! She so enjoyed her collegiate life and planned to create some type of outreach following graduation. She even spoke of someday writing a book that would be geared toward young teens so to provide a scope of thought and dialogue with parents, asking each to properly grasp what was truly being injected into their bodies."
"We always believed we would be sharing Haleigh's healing success story and doing outreach together. Since that is no longer possible, our family has chosen to be our lively girls voice and we stand to share her truth. Attempting to honor Haleigh's life, and love her from this world, a website has been created and is managed by her older sister."
