To Vaccinate or Not: A Physical AND Spiritual Decision


To Vaccinate or Not–A Physical AND Spiritual Decision

 
anh-usa.org

During the first half of November 2011, we discussed the controversial topic of vaccination on HFFG’s Facebook page.  I received many emails and Facebook messages, some good and some, well, not so good.  I have also received comments and messages looking for specific information that was posted since it can be difficult to locate on Facebook after a while.

Consequently, I would like to summarize our discussion and include the strongest points and information in one concise blog post.  This article can be used to forward to friends who may be asking questions like those I received in many emails during that time: “What’s wrong with vaccinations?” “Should I delay them?”  “Which ones are the most dangerous?” “What about herd immunity?” And so on.

But first, I’d like to remind my readers that as a parent of five children, I have been on both sides of this issue.  I blindingly and naively followed the masses on this topic for my first three children who were fully vaccinated.  I beamed with pride whenever I pulled out that fancy, up-to-date, gold vaccination card for each child.

When our fourth child was a year old, God placed some friends in our lives that gently warned us of the dangers of vaccines.  Because our fourth son had just experienced what we believed to be a reaction to those shots, we began to look into it further.  What I’ve found has led me to fiercely refuse any further vaccinations.

Vaccines May Not Even Work

First and foremost, I think we need to examine if vaccines even work.  At the beginning of my research, I primarily studied the side effects of vaccines.  Those side effects led me to decide that I would possibly just delay vaccinations for my younger children until they were older.  This was based on the lingering assumption that vaccines work.

However, the more research I did, the more I realized that the efficacy of vaccines has never even been proven.  In fact, there are plenty of studies proving that vaccines aren’t even working.  See for yourself:

In the vaccine maker’s own words and mandated by the government, the flu vaccine does not even work.  The following language is taken directly from the package insert that accompanies the flu shot:

“There have been no controlled clinical studies demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with AFLURIA.”

Not only do they have to state that they have never even conducted clinical studies proving its efficacy, but they also state that it’s SAFETY for certain groups has not been proven:

“Safety and effectiveness of Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine have not been established in pregnant women or nursing mothers and in the pediatric population below 6 months of age.”

Read for yourself here: http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM182401.pdf


In the words of a governmental research study:

In children under the age of two, the efficacy of inactivated vaccine was similar to placebo. It was not possible to analyze the safety of vaccines from the studies due to the lack of standardization in the information given but very little information was found on the safety of inactivated vaccines, the most commonly used vaccine, in young children.  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16437500

Additional information on the efficacy of other vaccines:

Whooping Cough Vaccine Not Working
“Nearly two out of three people diagnosed with whooping cough in San Diego County this year were fully immunized.”
http://www.kpbs.org/news/2010/sep/07/whooping-cough-vaccine-working/

“According to Suffolk health officials, ALL those affected had been immunized in the past, but immunizations are not 100 percent effective.”
http://raisingnaturalkids.com/2011/10/27/whooping-cough-outbreak-vaccinated-or-not-were-all-in-the-same-boat/

In an interview by an ex-vaccine worker, this expert says:

“Vaccines are superstitions. And with superstitions, you don’t get facts you can use. You only get stories, most of which are designed to enforce the superstition. But, from many vaccine campaigns, we can piece together a narrative that does reveal some very disturbing things. People have been harmed. The harm is real, and it can be deep and it can mean death. The harm is NOT limited to a few cases, as we have been led to believe.”

He further states:

“There were cities in England where people who were not vaccinated did not get smallpox. There were places where people who were vaccinated experienced smallpox epidemics. And smallpox was already on the decline before the vaccine was introduced.”

This interview is one of the most life-altering articles I read along my journey to the truth.  I highly recommend every parent read this for themselves:

We can clearly see from recorded outbreaks that vaccinated people are not even protected.

What About How Vaccines Save Lives?  
In order for them to work, then they should save lives.
The fact that vaccines have been saving lives for decades is usually based on two things:
 
1.  Medical publications/research studies
2.  History
 
Let’s take a deeper look at these two things:
 
1.  Medical Publications/Research Studies
It’s true that many, many articles have been published about the efficacy of vaccinations.  Unfortunately, there is growing proof that most medical journals are financially supported by pharmaceutical companies.  Consequently, they are likely to only publish studies with favorable results.In order to get to the truth, it’s helpful to look outside of medical journals sponsored by Big Pharma. The British Medical Journal (BMJ) conducted a rather large study to “explore the relation between study concordance, take home message, funding, and dissemination of comparative studies assessing the effects of influenza vaccines.”This 2009 study analyzed hundreds of studies to determine whether there was a link between study outcomes and the study’s funding groups on the influenza vaccines.  Here are a few of the things they discovered:
 
  • 23% of the studies had missing funding information (meaning the organization funding the study was “missing”).
  • “Studies partly or completely sponsored by industry, however, were published in more prestigious journals and are probably cited more, although their methodological quality and size were similar.”
  • 70% of the studies “were of poor quality with overoptimistic conclusions—that is, not supported by the data presented.”

The study concluded:

“Publication in prestigious journals is associated with partial or total industry funding, and this association is not explained by study quality or size.”

(Full study can be seen here: http://www.nvic.org/Downloads/Jeffersonetal-BMJ2009.aspx)

It is no secret that most of the articles printed in medical journals are the most biased sources of information available.  Dr. Jefferson, one of the authors of the study cited above, states:

The study shows that one of the levers for accessing prestige journals is the financial size of your sponsor. Pharma sponsors order many reprints of studies supporting their products, often with in house translations into many languages. They also purchase advertising space in the journal. Many publishers openly advertise these services on their website. It is time journals made a full disclosure of their sources of funding.

However, I’m not fully convinced that this is where healthcare workers are directly getting their own information from anyway.  As the BMJ study cited above said:

Healthcare workers wanting to keep up to date with recent advances in their specialty must deal with the quantity and quality of information sources. One study estimated that every month journals publish 7287 items (studies, letters, and editorials) relevant to primary care. These would take physicians trained in epidemiology 627 hours to read and appraise. Few healthcare workers have the time and skills to carry out in depth critical appraisal of published articles.

So we’ll discuss the other source of information for both healthcare workers and the general public:

2.  History 
Many healthcare workers, as well as parents, are quick to cite historical reports of infectious diseases declining due to the introduction of immunization.

Citing renowned physician McKeown’s work, Columbia University reports that there were other factors that were much more responsible for the decline in diseases than vaccinations:

The main influences on the decline in mortality were improved nutrition. . . reduced exposure (from better hygiene). . . and, less certainly, immunization and therapy on the large number of conditions included in the miscellaneous group.  Since these three classes were responsible respectively for nearly half, one-sixth, and one-tenth of the fall in the death rate, it is probably that the advancement in nutrition was the major influence.”(http://www.columbia.edu/itc/hs/pubhealth/rosner/g8965/client_edit/readings/week_2/mckinlay.pdf)

The following chart makes it clear that the rate of measles deaths in Europe gradually declined at a constant rate with improvements in sanitation, hygiene, nutrition, etc.:
http://childhealthsafety.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/0707275measleslog.jpg

Researchers at Columbia concluded the following:

In general, medical measures appear to have contributed little to the overall decline in mortality in the United States since about 1900.  More specifically, with reference to those five conditions (influenza, pneumonia, diptheria, whooping cough, and poliomyelitis) for which the decline in mortality appears to be substantial after the point of intervention–and on the unlikely assumption that all of this decline is attributable to the intervention–it is estimated that at most 3.5 percent of the total decline in mortality since 1900 could be ascribed to medical measures introduced for the diseases considered here.

It is unfortunate that doctors do not instead concentrate on nutrition which appears to play the largest role in warding off diseases.

 

*Healthcare workers–please continue to read below where we explore the possible spiritual implications of dispersing vaccines that may take someone’s life.

What About Herd Immunity?

What if the whole idea of herd immunity is another big fat lie?! And furthermore, what if the VACCINATED are the ones spreading around the diseases?! Yes, this may sound like a ridiculous claim but research, even some posted on the CDC’s website, proves this is the case:

For instance, most babies actually contract whooping cough from children who were recently vaccinated, as proven in studies like this one published on the CDC’s website: 

“Vaccinated adolescents and adults may serve as reservoirs for silent infection and become potential transmitters to unprotected infants (3-11)…even young, recently vaccinated children may serve as reservoirs and potential transmitters of infection.”
http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/6/5/00-0512_article

And this research published on the NY Times website found that those who are recently vaccinated with the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine carry the disease around in their throats and said:

“When you’re newly vaccinated you are an asymptomatic carrier, which is good for you, but not for the population.”  http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/26/health/study-finds-vaccinated-baboons-can-still-carry-whooping-cough.html?_r=0

 

“So in actual fact, the vaccinated are the ones who carry the disease and risk infecting the unvaccinated, rather than the other way around.”
http://www.vaccineriskawareness.com/The-Herd-Immunity-Theory-Treating-Our-Children-Like-Cattle

 

Ironic how much backlash people who do not vaccinated their children get for allegedly spreading around illness when the truth of the matter is that it is the recently vaccinated who are doing it.

 Be sure to check out my post about Secondary Transmission to see how vaccinations are actually spreading these diseases as taken directly from vaccine manufacturers’ product information sheets and medical research. This information is very important for everyone, especially those who are going to have their older children vaccinated and bring them around infants, elderly, etc. 

Herd Immunity Is Nothing More Than Vaccine Quotas


In the following article, the writer points out that the truth behind the concept of herd immunity is really just financial quotas:

“Section 27-8.1.7 of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) Health examinations and immunizations law explains that if a school vaccination rate falls below 90 percent, state aid payments to that school are automatically cut by 10 percent until the school comes into ‘compliance’ “

Read the article in its entirety here:

http://www.polkmoms.com/forum/topics/herd-immunty-from-vaccines-is-nothing-more-than-vaccine-quotas

Besides–if vaccines really worked, than why are the vaccinated so worried about the unvaccinated?

What About Polio?!

Many people who get defensive about anti-vaccine campaigns vehemently bring up the cases of paralysis from polio that their family members suffered from.  To that, I recommend reading the following articles:

Vaccine of Death
Pakistanian Prime Minister calls for halt in polio vaccines due to vaccine-derived outbreaks

 
Nigeria Sees Polio Outbreaks from Mutated Vaccine Virus
“A mutated virus from the oral vaccine used to prevent the spread of polio in Nigeria has paralyzed at least 124 children in the West African country this year.” (2009)
 
And especially this one, which is is a great post about the truth of polio, including how many cases of paralysis that were attributed to polio were actually from something else. Additionally, things that cause the exact same symptoms as polio today are simply labeled something else which provides the appearance that polio is eradicated or at least on the decline.
Vaccines Carry Dangerous Side Effects

“If vaccines were safe, manufacturers would not need federal legislation to protect them from liability. If vaccines were effective, no one would question the value of their use. If vaccines were good for us, state mandates would not be necessary to enforce them. A growing number of adults are investigating vaccines and discovering their contents.

Vaccines are grown on monkey kidneys, chicken embryos and contain bovine (cow) serum. Vaccines contain particles of viruses, bits of bacteria and measurable amounts of aluminum, gelatin, polysorbate 80, MSG and other chemicals. A responsible adult who concludes this combination of pathogens and chemicals can be harmful is not a ‘countercultural type who views life through a prism of conspiracy theory.’ ”Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, (http://drtenpenny.com/question_vaccines_by_Tenpenny.aspx)

 

Side effects from vaccines can be as simple as a 3-day fever, pain and swelling on the injection site, and irritability.  They are also very likely to cause even more dangerous symptoms like permanent suppressed immune system strength.

The following study is just one example of one ingredient contained in vaccines that has been medically proven to cause anaphylactic reactions. This one in particular says:

Polysorbate 80 is a ubiquitously used solubilizing agent that can cause severe nonimmunologic anaphylactoid reactions.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16400901

Furthermore, this does not discuss the link between polysorbate 80 and infertility. (See below for more info on that.)

“We have exchanged chicken pox for autism, flu for asthma, ear infections for diabetes…and the list goes on and on. In the zeal to eliminate relatively benign microbes, we have traded temporary illnesses for pervasive, life-long diseases, disorders, dysfunctions and disabilities.” Dr. Sherri Tenpenny

 
Research proves that children who get annual flu shots do not develop adequate T-cells and subsequent immune strength that they would otherwise develop by naturally being exposed to the flu.

“Annual flu vaccines. . . could leave people more vulnerable to novel pandemics.”http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/11/111116192801.htm

In the flu vaccine insert from the FDA’s (a government agency) website linked above, it states the following:

“In adults, the most common systemic adverse reactions were headache, malaise, and muscle aches.”

“In children, the most common systemic adverse reactions were irritability, rhinitis, fever, cough, loss of appetite, vomiting/diarrhea, headache, muscle aches and sore throat.”

Even worse than commonly giving patients the same symptoms its meant to prevent, the flu vaccine can cause far worse problems, as stated once again in the vaccine maker’s own words on packet inserts mandated by the government:

“Administration of CSL’s 2010 Southern Hemisphere influenza vaccine has been associated with increased postmarketing reports of fever and febrile seizures in children predominantly below the age of 5 years as compared to previous years.”(http://www.merck.com/product/usa/pi_circulars/a/afluria/afluria_pi.pdf)

 

“If Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) has occurred within 6 weeks of previous influenza vaccination, the decision to give Influenza A (H1N1) should be based on careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks.”

“3% who received PEDIARIX and 4% who received INFANRIX, ENGERIX-B, and IPV reported new onset of a chronic illness during the period from 1 to 6 monthsfollowing the last dose of study vaccines. Among the chronic illnesses reported in the subjects who received PEDIARIX, there were 4 cases of asthma and 1 case each ofdiabetes mellitus and chronic neutropenia. There were 4 cases of asthma in subjects who received INFANRIX, ENGERIX-B, and IPV.”(page 8;http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM241874.pdf)

Further packet inserts for these two vaccines indicates the presence of other complications including febrile seizures.

From the packet inserts (again, as stated by the manufacturer) for the inactivated polio vaccine (IPV):

“GBS [Guillain-Barre Syndrome] has been temporally related to administration of another inactivated poliovirus vaccine. Deaths have been reported in temporal association with the administration of IPV.”(Page 3: http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM133479.pdf)

 
The Hepatitis B vaccine is one of the biggest no-brainers of all!  Hepatitis B is contracted through shared needles and unprotected sex.  The vaccine carries the highest risk of death and is a ridiculous newborn hospital standard practice.

 

“The risk of a serious reaction to the Hepatitis B vaccine is 100 times greater than the risk of the disease.” http://towncenterwellness.com/learning-center/vaccination-information/vaccination-handouts/hepatitis-b-vaccinations-for-babies/

 

Hep B: Good for newborn “prostitutes” and drug users

“Merck generates over $1 billion worth of revenue from this vaccine alone.”
 
Read this story of how baby Ian was killed from the Hep B shot. A beautiful, precious new life designed by God and killed by man-made vaccines that make no sense for a new baby to receive anyway:
 
Another vaccine story that I highly recommend all parents read before giving their tiny infants any vaccinations.  It also provides good insight into what’s really going on in baby’s brain and body when he/she is screaming and crying uncontrollably from vaccines.

Other research studies are discussed on this topic in the following articles:

“A child’s future good health is more assured by getting through childhood diseases without vaccinations.”

 
Unvaccinated Children Far Less Prone to Allergies
 
Rise in Peanut allergies and problem with adjuvants
 
Peanut Allergy Epidemic Is A Man-Made Epidemic Caused By Vaccinations
 

Death

From other vaccine inserts (remember–as stated by the manufacturer):

“Some cases of SIDS can be expected to follow receipt of pertussis-containing vaccines.” (page 8;  http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM241874.pdf)

An analysis of Infant Mortality Rates (IMR) published in Human & Experimental Toxicology, and published on the government’s health information web database, discusses studies proving that SIDS is, in fact, largely a cause of vaccines. In fact, the term “SIDS” was presented in 1969 after vaccine programs were introduced and actively recommended. From the analysis:

Prior to contemporary vaccination programs, ‘Crib death’ was so infrequent that it was not mentioned in infant mortality statistics.

The analysis continues to discuss the increased risk of SIDS following the DPT vaccine:

Torch found that two-thirds of babies who had died from SIDS had been vaccinated against DPT (diphtheria–pertussis–tetanus toxoid) prior to death. Of these, 6.5% died within 12 hours of vaccination; 13% within 24 hours; 26% within 3 days; and 37%, 61%, and 70% within 1, 2, and 3 weeks, respectively.

 

Torch also found that unvaccinated babies who died of SIDS did so most often in the fall or winter while vaccinated babies died most often at 2 and 4 months—the same ages when initial doses of DPT were given to infants. He concluded that DPT “may be a generally unrecognized major cause of sudden infant and early childhood death, and that the risks of immunization may outweigh its potential benefits.  A need for re-evaluation and possible modification of current vaccination procedures is indicated by this study.”25

 

Walker et al. found “the SIDS mortality rate in the period zero to three days following DPT to be 7.3 times that in the period beginning 30 days after immunization.”26 Fine and Chen reported that babies died at a rate nearly eight times greater than normal within 3 days after getting a DPT vaccination.27

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3170075/

 

Further coroner examination of infants would reveal this information. The analysis above says, “Without a full necropsy study in the case of sudden, unexpected infant death, at least some cases linked to vaccination are likely to go undetected.” Unfortunately, when “SIDS” is listed as the cause of death, coroners usually do not (and refuse) to do any more investigation than simply evaluating for suffocation and examining the patient’s organs. There is a clearly a massive cover-up going on.

There is now increasing evidence pointing to a rise in rates of infertility as a result of vaccines.

 

Are New Vaccines Laced With Birth Control?

“Here are the known facts concerning the tetanus vaccination campaigns in Mexico and the Philippines:
 * Only women are vaccinated, and only the women between the ages of 15 and 45. (In Nicaragua the age range was 12-49.) But aren’t men at least as likely as young women to come into contact with tetanus? And what of the children? Why are they excluded?
 * Human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) hormone has been found in the vaccines. It does not belong there — in the parlance of the O.J. Simpson murder trial, the vaccine has been “contaminated.”
 * The vaccination protocols call for multiple injections — three within three months and a total of five altogether. But, since tetanus vaccinations provide protection for ten years or more, why are multiple inoculations called for?
 * WHO has been actively involved for more than 20 years in the development of an anti-fertility vaccine utilizing hCG tied to tetanus toxoid as a carrier — the exact same coupling as has been found in the Mexican-Philippine-Nicaragua vaccines.”
 
Bill Gates Speech Exposes Plan to Use Vaccines to Control Population
This article also discusses the findings of HCG hormone in tetanus shots and how it causes spontaneous miscarriage.

The main ingredient in the HPV vaccine now being given to young girlsand boys is polysorbate 80 which caused infertility in laboratory studies.

 
I read through some of 2011’s vaccine adverse effects reports (http://vaers.hhs.gov/data/data/) and read a report of a young boy who experienced shriveling and shrinking of his penis immediately after receiving the HPV vaccine.  Yikes!

Directly from the packet inserts for the Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV):

“Long-term studies in animals to evaluate carcinogenic [cancerous] potential or impairment of fertility have not been conducted.”

 

 

Vaccines Are Made From Aborted Baby’s Cells and Biblically Unclean Animals

lovethetruth.com

“There are two particular fetal cell lines that have been heavily used in vaccine development. They are named according to the laboratory facilities where they were developed. One cell line is known as WI-38, developed at the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia, PA. The other is MRC-5, developed for the Medical Research Council in England. WI-38 was developed by Dr. Leonard Hayflick in 1962, by taking lung cells from an aborted female baby at approximately the end of the third month of pregnancy.”

“The abortion was done because they felt they had too many children.”

In the case of the rubella vaccine, researchers needed to find a “specimen” carrying the live virus. At least 26 babies’ lives who would have been born healthy were carelessly and needlessly destroyed:

Preying on the fear that 20%-25% of pregnant women infected with Rubella pass it to their unborn children, possibly causing defects, doctors encouraged pregnant women to have their unborn children aborted during the 1964 epidemic.The first 26 aborted babies were unaffected.   The live rubella virus was found in the 27th killed unborn baby.

Unfortunately, many people, including Christians, are quick to dismiss this.  There are defenses thrown around such as, “The babies were not aborted for the purpose of vaccines,” and “The vaccines did not cause the abortions.”

One if the most highly misunderstood notions among moral theologians and ethicists is that the abortions involved were not done with the intention of creating vaccines.
“In order to sustain 96% of the cells, the live tissue would need to be preserved within 5 minutes of the abortion”-Dr. C. Ward Kischer…”Within one the cells would continue to deteriorate, rendering the specimens useless.”
It was the intent of the abortionist and the researcher to destroy these babies specifically for vaccine manufacturing.

Even if this wasn’t the case, does that really make it okay to inject our children with products created from aborted baby’s cells?! Forgive me, but I don’t see where there’s any gray area here.  It’s basic economics–when we give our children a vaccine made from aborted fetal cells, we are financially supporting the abortion industry.

As Dr. Joseph Mercola states in an article:

“How can a person be pro-life and NOT object to the use of these vaccines?”
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/07/10/this-shocking-fact-is-never-disclosed-on-any-vaccine-informed-consent-form.aspx#

An organization points out this simple fact:

“If these vaccines were developed from cell lines taken from Jews murdered in Nazi concentration camps, it is not difficult to imagine that there would be widespread, if not universal rejection of those vaccines.” Right to Life of Michigan

Women considering abortion are more likely to do so if they believe they can donate the fetus for research.  There are many studies to support this, including this one:

A study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal 1995, 153: 545-552 reported that “of the 122 [women] who indicated that they would consider an abortion if they were pregnant, (17.2%) stated that they would be more likely to have an abortion if they could donate tissue for fetal tissue transplants.  (http://www.cogforlife.org/fetalvaccinetruth.htm)
 
We also see the health effects of using vaccines from aborted fetal cells:

recent study by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has confirmed 1988 as a “change point” in the rise of Autism Disorder rates in the U.S. – a date that pro-life leaders say correlates with the introduction of fetal cells for use in vaccines.
http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/archive/ldn/2010/apr/10042306

 
Here is a chart showing the vaccinations that use aborted fetal cells:

In addition to the use of aborted infants’ cells, I would like to explore the Biblical warnings regarding taking a life, and the implications of doing so, since we have proven evidence from the VAERS that lives have been taken as a result of vaccinations.  This is especially not something I think healthcare workers (and parents) should take lightly.

In Exodus, God states that when a pregnant woman’s baby/babies are harmed, that the one who injured the baby shall be punished with the same fate as the baby’s:

“When men strive together and hit a pregnant woman, so that her children come out, but there is no harm, the one who hit her shall surely be fined, as the woman’s husband shall impose on him, and he shall pay as the judges determine. But if there is harm, then you shall pay life for life. . .” Exodus 21:22-23

When God gave Noah permission to also eat meat, He reminded him that we will each be held accountable not only for the lifeblood that we take from animals but that from people as well:

“And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each human being, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of another human being.

 

‘Whoever sheds human blood, by human being shall their blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made humankind.’ ” (Genesis 9:5-6)

There is no way to guarantee that the next shot a healthcare worker gives will not be one that sheds innocent blood.

Pro-vaccine M.D. Jessica Farnsworth says:

I am a doctor and a mother of young children who desires to keep my children safe. But above these callings, I am a Christian, and as such I cannot use a product that was developed from the abortion industry, even if it means great inconvenience or even danger for my family. The evil performed when these babies were killed decades ago is sufficient to make these tainted vaccines morally unacceptable. The passage of time does not diminish a sinful act. The close working relationship between abortionists and researchers introduces even more reason to abstain from participation in the fetal tissue market, and we have discussed how the practice of developing new cell lines continues.

 

No matter what “good” may be engineered from an evil, the evil act remains evil, and any participation in that evil is immoral. We cannot justify the evil of abortion by saying it provided the “good” of vaccines that protect our children and society. I do not find anywhere in Scripture that says we have a moral obligation or justification to protect ourselves at the expense of another human being. Promoting the greatest good for the greatest number of people at the expense of an innocent person is utilitarianism, and violates the sanctity of human life.

Vaccines Displace a Christians’ Faith

“Our own decision not to routinely vaccinate our children is founded on a number of factors, but the biggest one is this: we believe God knew what He was doing when He designed our bodies.”
Rachel Ramey, Titus 2 Homemaker

In another statement, she goes on to say:

 “We believe that God knew what He was doing when He designed our bodies, and that knowingly, intentionally circumventing His design is foolishness, denies His deity, and fails to uphold the inerrancy of Scripture. (Psalm 139:14; Proverbs 3:5-8; *Isaiah 55:8-9)”

 

“It says a lot when we take the bodies of our healthy children, made in the image and likeness of God, which are temples of the Holy Spirit, and forcefully inject them with various pathogens, heavy metals, foreign DNA etc in an attempt to “save” them from dying. It’s almost like…oh yeah, a false idol. It’s not using the minds God gave us to treat people with medicine. It’s giving God the finger and saying we can fix His Creation.”
The Guggie Daily

As I said in my post In Medicine We Trust, I believe much of our dependence on the medical field is based on our distrust of God and trust in the medical system.  Do we ever stop to look at how intricately and amazingly God’s creation is? From our bodies to the rotation of the earth and to the tiniest microorganisms on earth, there is unlimited intelligence in every single bit of creation.

And even though He created all these things before the fall of mankind, He created them with defenses for a fallen world in place.

For instance, every human body has a liver which has the job of eliminating toxins out of the body.  Tonsils carry the responsibility of catching and filtering out bacteria and viruses; eyelashes carry the job of keeping out dirt and other things from the eyes; nose hairs. . . fingernails. . . the list goes on and on.

But when we doubt this intricate design, we fall under the false presupposition that His design needs our help.

Titus 2 Homemaker goes on to say:

“See, vaccines administered to infants fundamentally alter the development of the immune system, so that its mature form is completely different than that of an immune system that matured without the influence of vaccines. As with everything else in modern society, we like to think that we can improve on God’s design, so this “redesign” of the immune system is viewed as a good thing. But isn’t that a humanist perspective? Can we really improve on the design of the Creator of the universe? Do we really believe we’re smarter than He is?” http://www.titus2homemaker.com/2010/02/does-god-know-what-hes-doing-vaccines/

What if our use of vaccines to protect our children is really just displaced faith? For more on that topic, view my post In Medicine We Trust
http://healthyfamiliesforgod.com/2011/08/in-medicine-we-trust/

As you will notice in that article, this may be the very same thing prophesied in scripture to lead ALL nations astray. 

One of the most amazing thing I have learned about God’s design is that breastmilk, the first food God intended for babies to get, has many protective effects against every single thing that babies in America are recommended to be vaccinated for. Here’s a post with some great information detailing some studies and research that show how amazing breastmilk, especially colostrum, is for protection against illnesses, diseases, and more: http://www.vaccineriskawareness.com/Disease-Killing-Properties-Of-Breast-Milk

 

I definitely think God knew what He was doing! He gave us eyelashes to protect our eyes from foreign particles, He gave us a liver to help eliminate toxins, and He gave us so many other things to help us live in a fallen world. Why would He not also consider ways to protect His precious children?!! How can we doubt His ways and His design, thinking instead that we can do better than Him? THAT is the same thing people did in the story of the Tower of Babel!

  4. […] As we briefly discussed above, vaccinations actually reduce immune health in many ways, one by destroying gut health. In our family, we didn’t stop vaccinating until child #4. We can see a clear difference in the children’s immune health for those who received vaccines vs. those who didn’t, as well as those who we used to give medications for and those we didn’t. (See below for more on that.) For more information on vaccines, you can read my post ‘To Vaccinate or Not: A Physical AND Spiritual Decision’ here. […]

    Some thoughts I shared with a friend of mine that was head-over-heels in love with this article:
    fairly informative, but highly suspect. not working? did you read all the referenced articles? It is easy to pull what you want from what you research and site and just hope that your readers don’t actually check your sources. this article for instance http://www.kpbs.org/news/2010/sep/07/whooping-cough-vaccine-working/ is surprisingly different than how the writer presents it. Consider for instance that the trending choice to not vaccinate may have allowed practically eradicated disease to begin slowly creeping back up, and like the flu in new forms, thus like the article says, with safer yet less effective vaccines – “We gave up something for decreased reactions: we gave up efficacy.” – we are seeing these disease resurface even in vaccinated people because they have been allowed to, due to not vaccinating. This is just a different perspective to remember. Also, I take very big issue with using the Bible or Spiritualizing issues like this. VERY dangerous. For example to claim that vaccines are created with unborn fetuses and Biblically unclean animals? (See Acts 10:9-23, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean”, just as one example of abusing the Bible for social issues). Furthermore, to say imunizing is like giving the finger to God because God made everything perfect is just naive. Why do we pull wisdom teeth? Why can the spleen be removed safely? Or, like I have heard some folks say, including you and Lee, people are completely evil from birth? Wait what? Now I am confused. are we created perfect, unblemished and only become imperfect through our interference? Or are we born into a fallen world? You see what I mean by spiritualizing social issues becoming dangerous and confusing. Not a good idea in my opinion…

      I find it interesting that you completely v
      Ignored the aborted fetal cell issue even after mentioning it in your comment. This is an actual fact and you can find which vaccines contain them what the strains are a d where they came from quite easily. It is undeniable fact that aborted babies are used for creating vaccines as well as for ca cine development.

    • Nicki says:

      and i am completely disturbed at the fact that you used the verse acts 10:9-23 to all but say that God had made aborted fetal cells clean?

      ummm…..

    I am very thankful to have found your website. Since I have join a few natural family facebook pages I repeatedly saw posts about vaccines which made me question why I was blindly following along with what everyone else did. I am thankful for your information so I can talk more to my husband about continuing with further vaccinations.

  10. Tessa says:

    Love this! I wish I had educated myself before allowing my first 2 children to be fully vaccinated. My third one is partially vaccinated. He was showing symptoms of autism that my pediatrician would not acknowledge. Not to mention the constant acid reflux and ear infections that the toxic stuff they call formula contributed to. It saddens me that I let my baby suffer for as long as I did. I believe that if God had not brought to my attention the things that he did in His perfect timing that my child would have become fully autistic. It is a wonderful blessing to others that you are part of sharing the truth of God’s healing.

  11. A says:

    To Nate, I understand where you are coming from. You have been taught something and you love what you do. You feel very strongly on this subject, but to some of us, we too feel very strongly. I blindly followed my peds recommendations and gave my children every vaccine, antibiotic, and medication he said they needed. My oldest daughter had ear infections and “sinus infections” at least once a month until she was almost 5. My son had ear infections every other week until he was 3 q/2. He got tubes at that time but the damage was already done. He has major speech delays and terrible stomacher problems. He has border line autistic behaviors and some days are a real struggle. If I had known the damage I was doing by giving them antibiotics like that I would have looked into other options…more natural options. Chiropractic care and diet are now a huge part of our lives. We take a daily vitamin and probiotics and no linger vaccinate. (Although my oldest is fully vaxed, my son is mostly vaxed and my youngest daughter is vaxed up until her first mmr-she had what drs say was a mild reaction- and it was more than enough for me to stop) I have done hours of research and do wonder why some of the things are done the way they are. I recently found my vax record, I haves TOTAL of 13 shots. I am 26…my daughter has as 20! She is 7…there is something seriously wrong with those numbers. Why is it we need to vax against a *mostly* harmless childhood disease? In fact, the chicken pox is now becoming a problem for teens and adults because of the vaccine…instead of getting it when its easiest to fight, the vaccine is proving to “wear off” after 5-7 years causing more and more cases. Why do we need to tell mothers that since their breastmilk makes the rotavirus less effective they should halt nursing around the time the vaccine is administered, even tho breastfeeding is the best thing you can do for your child? How many adults are actually “current” on their vaccines? I am not, obviously, buthow many others are not currently protected against these diseases? How many unvaxed adults are actually spreading these diseases instead of the unvaxed kids?

    I just noticed that you have to “moderate” my post in order for it to be posted on your site. So, do I have to agree with you for my post to make your page? PS–I would be happy to email you a ppt about immunization with medically accurate data.

  13. Nate says:

    I am a christain physician that sees children every day of my life and have 3 children of my own. I do respectfully disagree with much of what you have posted. I have researched this topic extensively and often give community talks showing the scientifically proven reduced prevalence of certain diseases due to immunization. However, one statement you posted truly troubles me. You say, ” It’s giving God the finger and saying we can fix His Creation,” when speaking of immunizations. Let’s face it–sin entered the world and took God’s creation from perfection to an organism that is in the process of dying from the day he/she is born. Here is my question for you–If you child developed leukemia, would you have them go through chemo and radiation to fix this? Isn’t this “fixing God’s creation” too? Or if your father is having a heart attack, would you want to “fix God’s creation” by placing a coronary stent or just let nature take its course.

    • sjpoff says:

      Thanks for your comment Nate. First off, that was a quote from someone else–I was simply sharing what they said. But I included it because the purpose of vaccines is to “help” the baby’s immunity to disease, which basically says that God did not properly design our immune systems so we have to make up for that. If God designed our bodies based on a perfect world, why do we have a liver to filter out toxins? Why do we have eyelashes and nose hairs to filter out dirt? Why are our bones and skin designed to naturally heal itself?

      Secondly, like 75 percent of oncologists, I would absolutely and adamantly refuse chemotherapy, especially for my children. The success rate is far better with God’s healing foods and methods for cancer. And I am trying to convince my dad not to eat things that will lead to a heart attack! 🙂

      I would encourage you to prayerfully consider if any children have been injured/killed as a result of vaccines you gave them. I personally know many people who have had this happen and the chances are highly likely that this may be the case. If you seek God on this issue without precedent or bias, I fear you may see the truth of blood on your hands.

      Thanks for your comments!

      • Nate says:

        First of all, it is a ridiculous statement to say that 75% of oncologists would refuse chemo to a child. It is very dependent upon the type and grade of the cancer, and many types of leukemia have cure rates as high as 80% with chemo and radiation. Where did you get that 75% number? Give me any evidence that healing foods heal cancer. I would love to pass this information on to my patients and the cancer research institutes.

        I believe it is very Biblical that when sin entered that world, so did death and disease. If you truly believe that God designed our bodies to maintain perfection and be able to fight off any disease, then why does anyone get sick and die? So, should we not treat pneumonia with antibiotics, high blood pressure to prevent stroke, diabetes with insulin, heart attacks with stents, etc. All the above mentioned could be interpreted as “fixing God’s creation.”

        You made the statement, “If you seek God on this issue without precedent or bias, I fear you may see the truth of blood on your hands.” It sounds like you are calling me a murderer? I can honestly say that no child that I have every immunized has ever died as a result of a shot. However, the question is how many children could potentially die from preventable diseases due to the spreading of non-scientific, scare-tactic propaganda? I guess we’ll just agree to disagree. God Bless.

        • sjpoff says:

          You’re right–We are all destined to die a physical death. Therefore, we can’t be free of sickness or disease. I did not say that the earth (as it is now) can be free of death and disease, nor did I say that our bodies were meant to maintain perfection. I was simply saying that in God’s amazing and intricate design, He has given us the food and bodies we need to maintain a healthy, functional life for as long as He has destined us to be on this earth. Thinking anything less says more about what we think of God than we do of medicine.

          Did you know that breastfeeding reduces the efficacy of vaccines? Of course you did. But did you stop to think why? Maybe because God’s design for breastmilk was to do what vaccines do (without the side effects of course), but using vaccines instead of encouraging breastfeeding and healthy lifestyles would not provide a decent income for doctors.

          As far as the information for healing cancer, the information has been available for almost one hundred years. If doctors wanted it, they would have it. Check out the movie, “The Beautiful Truth” or research Dr. Max Gerson, who was murdered to hide the evidence that natural therapy kills cancer.

          And no, I do not believe we should be treating diabetes with insulin, heart attacks with stents, and medication for high blood pressure. There are dietary changes and cures for all of these. Modern medicine does not cure; it masks symptoms. In the process, it predisposes the patient to additional problems. For instance, insulin medications increase a patient’s risk of heart disease and stroke. So does hormone replacement for women. It also makes women more likely to have diabetes. Stents are proven to be a very short-term fix that only lasts temporarily without dietary changes and orthomolecular therapy. I could go on and on with those. I’ll be happy to provide evidence for each one of those should you be interested.

          In the meantime, I think you may want to check out my article In Medicine We Trust (on this website) to get a clearer picture of where I stand on medicine and why. Did you know that the word Pharmakeia, where pharmacy comes from, is in the Bible and interpreted as sorcery? We are warned against it in the Bible, including in Revelations.

          I know doctors go into the medical field wanting to help people. It’s just unfortunate that the love of money has tainted medical schools and doctors and stripping them of that passion.

          I also recommend Dr. Mark Hyman & Dr. Mark Liponis’ book Ultra-Prevention. And any of Dr. Linus Pauling’s nobel-prize winning work on orthomolecular medicine. Thank you again for your discussion! I hope it can in some small way even bring glory to God.

    Thank you so much for the links!

    I am honored to be linked/quoted in such a calm, well-researched, and non-alarmist article. 🙂

    Thanks for confirming what we believe. Boy now 2 got his first shots before we questioned this and just the truma of seeing him cry at such a young age made me as a dad question if this is really God’s will. By grace is he fine, his sister did not get any shots.

  16. Hannah says:

    Thanks for this wonderful compilation of facts regarding vaccines. We allowed our daughter to receive Hep. B and her 8 week shots before I really dug into what was in vaccines. We will not allow her and any future children to receive another vaccine. I wish someone would have shared more information with me before she was born. I listened to a respected Christian radio program and he had on a doctor who “debunked” many of the vaccine “myths” and that is what initially convinced me vaccines were safe. If only I had done more research. I hope I can thoughtfully share what I’ve learned with other moms and allow them to learn the real truth about vaccines. It’s scary to see how many people, especially those in the medical field, are deceived.

  17. Mandy says:

    Very well written. This was a blessing to me today as I struggle with this decision in my family. Thanks so much!

  18. Hello, I was wandering around online and I saw your site from another site. I read a few of your posts and thought they are well written. Thanks, Ill visit your page again soon.

  19. Nichole says:

    I love this post! Thanks to this I’ve just realized that our baby we lost in march 07from miscarriage happened only a few months after i was obligated to get a tetnus vax, this was before id learned the truth about vaxs. 🙁

    On another note I’m curious if you are familiar with homeopathy, that is true medicine and God
    given. We use homeopathy for nearly everything, its amazing how many ways God has given us to help heal our bodies of differing ailments.

    • sjpoff says:

      Oh Nichole, I’m so sorry for your loss 🙁 That is heartbreaking.

      We are very big fans of natural remedies although we have only briefly stepped into the world of homeopathics. I have found much of the medicine we would need for basic stuff in food-type sources but will use things like arnica, belladonna, chamomile, and stuff if the situation ever arises! God truly HAS given us everything we need!! Thanks for your comment! God’s blessings to you and yours!
