As I mentioned in my last post, the speakers at the 2019 V.I.E. (Vaccine Injury Epidemic) Event in Washington, DC were excellent. (Scroll down for a list and video of all the speakers.) In the video immediately below, pediatrician Dr. Bob Sears gives a powerful and emotional explanation of why doctors deny vaccine injury. Please watch, hear and share.
“I’m here today to talk about one of the worst evils of our time. The denial of vaccine injury; the threat of mandatory vaccination; and a new form of discrimination — government mandated, industry sponsored and media supported discrimination. Vaccine injured children are the most invisible group of disabled children in history. It’s as if none of your children who are here today exist.
They don’t exist!”
“It’s time to normalize vaccine injury; to make it something that is ok to talk about…It is time for the world to see that while vaccines may save some people; they also cause severe harm to tens of thousands right here in America every single year.”

2019 V.I.E Event, National Mall, Washington, DC

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.”
From Restore Ye to Its Owners: on the immorality of receiving vaccines derived from abortion

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."
Michael Simms, from Australia, is the father of a vaccine injured son.
Thank you, Michael for "just asking" and for permission to share your simple and powerful message. Love and prayers for you and your little boy.
Why when I asked for the vaccine insert was I given a promotional flier?
Why when I noticed immediate changes in my son after vaccinations did multiple doctors tell me nothing is wrong with him and he may be deaf?
Why are vaccine injuries never on the news but every single case of measles is?
Why are other countries cutting back their vaccines while we are increasing ours?
Why are doctors not allowed to speak against vaccines?
Why does nobody know where Autism comes from, and why is it increasing so much?
Darcy, from Austraila, was not quite two months old when he passed away, just one week after receiving his six week vaccines. He leaves behind his heartbroken mother and father and his little twin sister. The following is Darcy's story, in words and photos, as shared by his mother, Brooke.
21 January 2019 - 18 March 2019
Darcy is a twin to his little sister, Jada...
He was born premature at 35 weeks. Perfect and healthy. Here in Australia NSW, vaccines are to be given at 6 weeks not corrected age. Both my babies received their 6 week needles at 1 week corrected age.
After Darcy and his twin sister Jada had their needles, Darcy had come down with a fever. I was told by the doctor and nurse to give him some Panadol. I did, and everything was fine after that. He was back to his usual self in no time.
"Best friends...We miss you so much Darcy."
One week later on March 18, 2019, I woke up around 6am for Darcy’s feed time. Everything was fine...completely normal and his usual self. Darcy finished his bottle, nappy change, and burp and we both went back to sleep.
I then woke up around 10am to roll over and find my son pale, cold, milk stain around his mouth and a reddish bubble hanging out of one of his nostrils. I rubbed my eyes, thinking I was having a bad dream.
I started screaming and my partner woke up. I already knew and I felt sick struggling to catch a breath. I picked my son up and was screaming “Darcy, Darcy wake up” JUST WAKE UP..
Sweet Andi passed away just two days after receiving her six month vaccines. Like many babies who have died shortly after vaccines, her death was classified as SIDS. This past July 7th -- the 9th anniversary of Andi's death -- her mother shared the following message on Facebook; and like other mothers (and fathers) who have lost a child to vaccines, Andi's mother shares their story to protect other children and families from the harm and heartache that vaccines can and do cause.
"In spite of my grief, the will of my heart is to remain open...Today is the anniversary of Andi’s death. Andromeda Grace Whitney, beautiful, perfect, loved...Please take a moment to educate yourself on vaccines, the possible adverse effects, the illnesses they are meant to protect against, and the treatment protocol for those illnesses. Then look further at the CDC list of who should NOT be vaccinated against those illnesses. If our pediatrician had taken a simple family history, we’d still have our child."
December 23, 2009 - July 7, 2010
"Her last vaccines were July 5, 2010. I could never remember the date of her vaccines, just that when the coroner asked, I told him she had just had them."
In 2018, Andi's mother shared their story on the Circle of Mamas website. It is shared here with her permission.
SIDS After 6 Month Vaccines
Today marks the 8th anniversary of our daughter’s death, following her six-month vaccines. Here’s our story.
We were blessed with a daughter when our son was five-years-old. She was beautiful -- a little doll. When she was born, she had a head full of black hair, and a wise look in her blue eyes. She was so loved. Not only by our immediate family, but at my school (26 children) as well as the Martial Arts studio, where my husband taught.
Our daughter was strong, just beginning to crawl, smart and opinionated. I remember thinking,“Here we go again!” Because her brother was spirited as well.
While I was pregnant, I received vaccines for dtap, flu, and swine flu. Our daughter was vaccinated according to schedule on time, every time. She died of SIDS following her 6-month well baby check up. She had her six-month shots two days before she died, July 5.
That morning, I woke before everyone in the family, to get ready for the day. She stirred for a moment, I settled her back down to sleep (she usually slept a bit longer in the mornings). I hauled the trash cans up our driveway, came back down to shower. When I came back to the room to change (15 minutes from when I left her), she was in bed, arched back, and not breathing.
I started CPR (my daughter was actually at my most recent CPR training with me), called to my husband, he took over as I called 9-1-1. The operator was reassuring as she was giving the instructions that we were already familiar with.
About two years ago I first read a post about Jayden that his mother, Michelle, shared on Facebook. Almost immediately, this sweet little boy and his devoted family worked their way into my heart; and I've wanted to compile a blog post about them for quite some time.
Like many other parents of severely vaccine injured children; when the conventional medical establishment gave them little hope or options for recovering Jayden; with relentless determination, in depth research and unwavering faith in God, Jayden's mom and dad found ways to recover their son. In addition to being Jayden's primary caregiver, while raising his very bright and busy older sister, and operating a home-based business, Michelle still finds time to keep her social media family updated on Jayden's progress and setbacks.
It is extremely disturbing that children and families like Jayden's; get ignored by pro-vaccine advocates and legislators who cling to the belief that vaccines are "safe and effective" and push for vaccine mandates and repeal of vaccine exemptions.
Thank you Michelle Marie and Dave for your inspiring faith; for sharing your sweet Jayden with all of us; and for speaking out to educate and protect others. The following post from Michelle, along with photos and videos summarize Jayden's story; and tell the very real truth that vaccines can and do cause serious harm and heartache. Read, watch and share and please keep Jayden, and all vaccine injured children and their families in your prayers.

"That one family who was willing to tell me their story of vaccine injury likely changed the course of my entire life and the lives of my three children."
In 1996, when I was pregnant with my first child, I walked into church one day and saw a child and a family I had never seen there before. The little girl was wheelchair bound, had a trach, could not hold her own head up or clear her throat. I don't know that I'd ever seen a child in such a severe condition outside of a hospital
I remember introducing myself to the family and asking if they were open to explaining to me their little girl's diagnosis. I will never forget the mother looking at me and saying, "I can't really tell you but, my sister is right there. Ask her.
Her sister began to tell me about how this little girl had been a perfectly healthy baby right up until the day that she received her MMR at 12 months. Within hours, she developed a fever in excess of 108, began seizing, and ended up permanently and severely brain damaged. She explained to me that the family had been awarded a settlement through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. I knew that vaccines could cause reactions, but I had never heard of anything like this or seen with my own eyes such a tragic outcome. I was speechless.

It’s not “cool” to not vaccinate.
And not in the way you think I mean.
Socially and professionally, it’s suicide.

I see your cartoons and your posts about people who are questioning vaccines. I was you, just a little over 3 years ago. I saw it as a black and white issue with no room for debate. I thought ugly thoughts and stated my opinion plainly. I thought I had read the science, which of course was me reading abstracts of a handful of industry-funded, cherry-picked studies that did not contain true inert placebos. I read the CNN articles. I looked at the CDC website. I knew what the WHO was. There was absolutely no possible way in my mind that getting vaccines involved any risk worth my consideration.
Then my beautiful daughter, Rosie, regressed into autism slowly, incrementally, and profoundly. I denied that vaccines played a role. I just couldn’t believe it. I didn’t want to believe it. After a significant decline following a flu shot, I asked the nurse, awkwardly…
“Rosie really tanked after her flu shot. I don’t want to be one of those people, but could there be something to that?”
The nurse took a deep breath, and very diplomatically said, “Vaccines create an immune response in the body and if her immune system was poor or struggling, it could affect her negatively.
Say what?! Enter doubt. Rosie’s immune system was terrible. During her short life she had already had many ear infections with multiple rounds of antibiotics. She had even contracted the rare Epiglottitis – two months before getting that flu shot. Epiglottis is “a rapidly progressive bacterial infection of the epiglottis and surrounding tissues that may lead to sudden respiratory obstruction and death” – something the HIB vaccine should have protected her from! Fail.
