NOTE: This post was originally written in August of 2011. It has been updated (7/2/16) with the most current information. With the passage of SB277 in California, families in that state have lost their right to religious or philosophical exemption from vaccination. California now joins West Virginia and Mississippi as being the worst places in America to raise a family. If you live in those states, the government can force you to vaccinate your child in order for your child to attend public or private school. If you don’t live in those states, you need to become active to protect your rights. Please join NVIC’s Advocacy Portal and get active NOW.
In August of 2011, my then eleven year-old daughter was about to start middle school in Indiana. We made the decision that she would not be vaccinated because we believe that God created her immune system perfectly and we also believe that to artificially manipulate the immune system that God created is against His Will. This is exactly what is written on her Religious Exemption, which, thankfully, is part of the law in Indiana. If you do not live in Indiana, and you want to know your state’s laws on vaccine exemptions, you can find that information at the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) website.
A few years ago, Indiana (and many other states) changed their “mandated” vaccines to be in compliance with the CDC’s recommended schedule. This means that all children entering middle school (and who do not have either religious or medical exemptions) will receive three additional injections in order to attend the schools their parents pay for when they pay taxes. The “mandated” shots are TDaP, Varicella, and the Meningococcal vaccine. Many parents will also be talked into (or have been brainwashed by media lies) having their children vaccinated against HPV and the flu. These poor, unsuspecting children may receive FIVE injections of SEVEN vaccines in a single day. As I write this, my stomach churns and my heart sinks. I can’t wait to hug and kiss my daughter, knowing she is ONE LESS – Thank God for religious exemption. I don’t take it lightly and neither should you. This is a right that is being threatened and which we may lose if we do not take action to stop the corruption and collusion between the U.S. government, our state elected officials, and the pharmaceutical industry. Enough about politics. For now.
I wondered, for those children who will be receiving those vaccines, just what will be injected into them in that one visit? Many of them will be going to the vaccine clinics that have been advertised all over town. That means they will be getting vaccines from multi-dose vials that contain mercury. I know they will get a lot of aluminum, and since aluminum causes the same kinds of damage as mercury, AND since aluminum greatly increases the toxicity of mercury, even at minute doses, this is very worrisome. What else will they be injected with? Thanks to Barbara Loe Fisher at NVIC, we can find out.
I used NVIC’s Vaccine Ingredients Calculator and keyed in Leah’s age and weight (in 2011 she was 11 years old and weighed 95#). Leah wasn’t getting vaccinated, but many of her friends were approximately the same age and size, so I figured this was a good “standard” to use. The vaccines I chose (from the menu), are those that I know are used by my family doctor. The amounts will vary somewhat, depending on what manufacturer you choose. Here is a list of what will be injected directly into the bodies of middle-school children across the United States, if they are vaccinated according to the CDC’s schedule (adding the Varicella vaccine for those in Indiana).
Aluminum: 555 micrograms (mcg.)
Bovine Protein: Unknown amount – the amount of bovine (cow) protein in the Varicella vaccine is not disclosed by the manufacturer, so there is no way to know how much these girls will be injected with. There is no data available regarding the safety of injecting cow protein directly into children.
Egg Protein: Unknown amount. The amount of egg protein (chicken) in the Fluvirin vaccine is not disclosed. There is no data available regarding the safety of injecting egg protein directly into children.
Formaldehyde: 5 mcg. There is no data regarding the safety of injecting formaldehyde directly into children.
Human DNA from fetal cell line MRC-5
Human protein from fetal cell line MRC-5
Human protein from fetal cell line WI-38 – There is no way to know how much human fetal DNA & human fetal protein will be injected (again, not disclosed). There is also no data available regarding the safety of injecting human fetal DNA or human fetal protein directly into children. What we do know is that the DNA from MRC-5 is male DNA. WI-38 is female. Both of these are being injected into all children who are vaccinated, regardless of whether the recipient child is male or female. What do you suppose might be the consequences of that experiment?
Mercury: 50 micrograms (25 mcg from the flu vaccine, and 25 mcg from Menomune – both are multi-dose vials). The EPA safety limit is 5 micrograms. So, children who are vaccinated simultaneously with Menomune and Fluvirin at vaccine clinics will receive 10 times the safety limit of mercury. In one day.
2-Phenoxyethanol: 3.3 milligrams (mg.). There is no data regarding the safety of injecting phenoxyethanol into children. According to the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) on 2-Phenoxyethanol, it is “extremely hazardous” in case of ingestion, inhalation, skin contact or eye-contact. It is toxic to the nervous system, kidneys, and liver.
Polysorbate 80: 50 mcg. Again, there is no data available regarding the safety of injecting Polysorbate 80 directly into children. See this 2016 statement from the American College of Pediatricians regarding Polysorbate 80 and infertility.
Yeast Protein: Unknown amount, and no data regarding the safety of injecting directly into children.
In addition to the fact that these ingredients have not been tested for safety when injected, there has never been a single study investigating the safety or efficacy of vaccines as they are administered to our children. The following clip is from a talk given at USI (University of Southern Indiana), by Dr. Andrew Kroger from The CDC. At the end of his talk, I asked Dr. Kroger to confirm that vaccines given to our kids have not been studied as they are applied.
My daughter did not receive these vaccinations. She is not a guinea pig; she’s a child. And she’s my child – and she is God’s child. Therefore we are exercising our right to religious exemption. I hope you will, too. Help us fight to protect the rights of parents to choose whether or not their child should be used as a guinea pig, for the financial benefit of the medical community and big pharma.
