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...”

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.”

In the following brief video, Dr. Theresa Deisher talks about human aborted fetal contaminants and retroviruses in the Rubella, MMR and Chickenpox vaccines and their association with several human diseases including Multiple Sclerosis, Schizophrenia, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) and HIV associated dementia.
“Anyone who says that these contaminants in a vaccine would not do anything, either knows nothing about immunology or vaccinology; or they’re not telling the truth. If I talk to someone in the field of small fragment homologous recombination and I say “how much human fetal DNA fragments left in a vaccine do you think would be safe?” They say, ‘zero’.”
After starting video, be sure to click "unmute" icon at bottom right to activate sound.
“…and mutated stem cells could cause problems for us for life. The dangers of retroviral fragments as well as the residual human fetal DNA are an unstudied risk to vaccine recipients. No study has ever been done to look at the safety of these contaminants. No cytokines have ever been measured;
and no antibodies have ever been measured.”
In the June 20, 2019 episode of The HighWire, Del Bigtree talked with Dr. Deisher of Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute, about aborted fetal cell DNA fragments in vaccines. The video originally included with this blog post has been removed by YouTube. Below is an alternative video. Click image to view.
On July 11, 2019, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) published a feature article, entitled, "Fetal Cells and Vaccines -- Common Questions Answered." The article contained several false statements; including that the final vaccines are pure and "... will not introduce unnecessary components that could trigger immune responses or affect us in other ways." They did not reference any safety study for that statement. Click here to read Sound Choice Pharmaceuticals' July 21, 2019 rebuttal -- complete with references -- to the CHOP article.
Stanley Plotkin, MD, aka "The Godfather of Vaccines, is considered the world's leading authority on vaccines.
Originally published in 1988 and now in it's 7th edition, his book "Plotkin's Vaccines" is the standard textbook for vaccines; and has been called "the bible for vaccinologists" by pro vaccine advocate, Bill Gates. Following an introduction at the February 2017 meeting of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services National Vaccine Advisory Committee, Dr. Plotkin commented, "I hope you all have indeed have read the book, and I hope it's more accurate than the Bible." Listen to Dr. Plotkin make that statement here.
Dr. Plotkin is an atheist who has little tolerance for religious beliefs. He stands by his statement, “Vaccination is always under attack by religious zealots who believe that the will of God includes death and disease.”
The first video below, is a brief excerpt from a nine-hour deposition, in which Dr. Plotkin while under oath, details the use of aborted babies in vaccines. If you have read J. B. Handley's, "How To End the Autism Epidemic" you will be aware of this deposition conducted by attorney, Aaron Siri. In the second video (beginning at 0:29:54) from the January 17th episode of The HighWire, you'll hear several pro vaccine advocates praise Dr. Plotkin and get a sense of the "god-like" influence that Dr. Plotkin has over them. Perhaps the most revealing and disturbing comment about Dr Plotkin comes from Dr. Paul Offit who states, "He trained a generation just a generation of scientists, including myself, to think like he thinks."
Theresa Deisher, PhD is President of the non-profit Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute. Her research focuses on the health risks of residual human fetal DNA contaminants and retroviruses found in pharmaceutical products, including some vaccines and how these contaminants may be implicated in autism, autoimmune disease and cancer. Dr. Deisher was the first person to discover adult cardiac derived stem cells, and has been a champion of adult stem cell research, both professionally and privately for over two decades. As the result of this work, her name is on 23 patents as the inventor. Read more about Dr. Deisher here. Not only is Dr. Deisher a brilliant scientist, who has the integrity and courage to speak out about her research even when it goes against popular mainstream thinking and corporate interests; she is a mother whose own son developed and passed away from a rare childhood cancer that her research has linked to human fetal cell vaccines.
Take the time to listen to two recent interviews with Dr. Deisher and please share with others. The first is a Vaccine Choice Canada interview recorded in June, 2018 at the Alliance for Life Ontario annual conference where Dr. Deisher was one of the featured speakers. Topics covered in the interview include:
"I encourage parents to let their pediatrician know how these vaccines are made. Most pediatricians don't even know. Let their pediatrician know about the established biologic dangers to their child. Most pediatricians don't even know. Make their objections known, because if we declined these vaccines, we would have alternatives and in some cases, it's a matter of months. So there are alternatives that can be available in three months if we said no thank you as a population as a whole; we want a safer vaccine... If you're forced to vaccinate, it's very reasonable that you would delay until your child's as old as you possibly can; and I think that clearly reduces the risk for autism. That won't reduce the potential risk for cancer, but the cancer rates in children are much lower than the rates in autism."
-Theresa Deisher, PhD-
In "The Truth About Stem Cells" interview below with The HighWire's Del Bigtree, Dr. Deisher explains how human fetal cell line vaccines are having adverse effects on our children in the form of autism and rare childhood cancers. Dr. Deisher also talks about the arrogance of many MDs and PhDs who don't like to admit that they might be wrong.
“...I can say this because I’m a scientist, but you can’t. I think that there is, in many cases, an arrogance among MDs and PhDs; that they don’t want to admit that they are wrong. They don’t want to question. Sometimes they’ll hold to dogma, I mean they’ll hold to dogma where there’s actually no data anywhere that supports it; but these are also very confident people and you have to be confident to be a doctor or a scientist, right; and so yet that strength if it’s not balanced with perspective and curiosity and inquisitiveness, is a huge weakness. So confidence can then become arrogance and arrogance does not like to be wrong and if that arrogance is not, is based on a really weak foundation, right, then, it’s attack; because they’re arrogant really; really, they’re not confident. …They’ve lost the balance and so it’s turned into arrogance; and arrogance is weak actually and vulnerable and they’re very angry. when they feel that they’re attacked.”

In May, I shared a post by Courtney Charles entitled, "Do Vaccines Violate the Christian Faith?" In the following post, "Calling All Christians" Courtney addresses the use of aborted fetal cell vaccines, and the dilemma that causes for those opposed to abortion, especially in light of the recent approval of CA SB277 which eliminates religious and personal belief exemptions. Inspired by a scripture passage, Courtney's message speaks to both Christians and non-Christians who oppose vaccines due to deeply held religious beliefs. It also reminds me of the scripture passage that "nudged" me to start Vaccine Choice Prayer Community. Read about that here.
Note: There is much misinformation about the Vatican and the use of aborted fetal cell vaccines. For accurate information, please visit Children of God for Life; and for further clarification of the "right of conscience" please read this May 6, 2015 letter sent to California lawmakers by Children of God for Life.
Do Vaccines Violate the Christian Faith?
by Courtney Charles
Continuing along the same lines as my post "Aborted Fetal Cell Vaccines & Religious Beliefs," below is a beautifully written, well referenced article by Courtney Charles from her website Alkaline Mom's Alabaster Living. It comes at a time when Christians and non-christians are facing the very real possibility that they will have to violate their deeply held religious beliefs in exchange for education, employment, medical care and more. Thank you Courtney, for permission to share your post!
