Related: Beware of skin creams that contain fetal proteins from aborted babies
Below is an email I sent to my sister concerning vaccines being cultured in aborted fetal tissue. I thought I would post it here for documentation sake at Values Voter News. My wife and I are having our 5th baby and my sister just had her baby and so the issue of vaccines has surfaced. I never was anti-vaccine except I have a natural inclination to not want to inject anything into my children but vaccines I thought were justified for the protection of the diseases that they successfully protect children and society from. But then I heard of the issue that some vaccines were cultured in aborted fetal tissue then I started keeping an ear out and here is what I have found so far in an email to my sister:
"Since your baby and now that Vena and I are going to have to make choices on this issue in the near future with Teague and our new baby I thought I would bring this up to you and ask you what you think about it.
I never cared before about the Autism issue and still do not believe our child will get autism via a vaccination as none of our other children have nor do I believe your child will. But as I did some research another concern came up over the issue of cancer and brain development. I heard from pro-life news sources last year about vaccines being cultured in aborted fetal tissue. Now we as pro-lifers find that not very inviting to say the least. However, an institute called Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute (SPCI) whose President has some fair credentials. She has a PHD from Stanford University in Molecular and Cellular Physiology, has 23 patents but probably the most interesting and notable one is her being the first to discover adult heart stem cells. She has worked for biotech companies in the field and has 17 years experience. For some more on her click here.
She is very concerned with the vaccines being cultured with aborted fetal tissue. Not only because she is pro-life but because of all the scientific unknowns. Dr Oz on the Oprah Winfrey show said that he believes Adult Stem Cell research will cure many diseases in 10 years over Embryonic Stem Cell Research because stem cells from one's own body actually is less likely to form tumors than introducing embryo stem cells from another embryo cause from what I can gather from the interview is 1) they are much harder to control what they become and 2) they are not from one's own genes maybe one of the reasons why they are hard to control what they do become. You can watch his explanation here.
Now I was reading SPCI's April newsletter which you can read here. What really struck me as concerning as I was reading was what the newsletter claimed the FDA authors in 2008 wrote: “Whether this residual cell-substrate DNA can induce tumors in vaccine recipients and thus represent a risk factor has been debated for over 50 years without resolution.” (Biologicals 2008 vol 36 pages 184-197).
" So there apparently is residual DNA from the aborted fetal tissue that remains in the vaccine after it is cultured from what I am gathering here and we are injecting that into our kids.
Now I listened to an interview of this lady on some program here
and she said that vaccines cultured in animal tissue and residual from that tissue is not a problem because our body will recognize it as a foreign agent of some sort and fight it off however she is concerned that residual DNA from aborted fetal tissue the body may not fight off and wants to study the issue more.
So in the newsletter she explains that the FDA has begun to look at the dangers of residual human DNA in vaccines triggering cancer but SPCI is conducting the first studies to look at the impact of residual human fetal DNA in vaccines on brain development and autism disorder in our children. So it appears there are greater concerns than just autism which is now what is concerning me that being future formations of tumors and possibly cancerous tumors or tumors in dangerous areas and then brain development.
Here are my concerns: The most obvious is 1) the aborted life that was used to culture the vaccines. 2) Do I really want a vaccine that has residual human DNA from another human being's DNA in my child without any resolution on the science of such an effect? 3) Scripturally speaking and this may be stretching a little but it speaks of not touching a dead body, bone of a man nor grave and if one does they are considered unclean until evening or something and then here we are injecting ourselves with tissue from another dead human being. Now the stretch
is that this life is a life that died in early development as opposed to a life that is well along the way in development but none the less a bit concerning either way considering this is the actual DNA though residual of another human life being injected into our children.
Now God will take care of us either way but I never knew about the aborted fetal tissue before on my previous children and now that I know I am not sure if I am willing to get these types of vaccines. The neat thing is that Vena did some research and there are alternative vaccines that were not cultured in aborted fetal tissue for most of the vaccines though not all.
I guess my question to you is have you in your research of autism and vaccines and other issues come across the culturing process and the issues above that may be a possible rebuttal? I also wanted to give you this information for you and your child just in case there is some validity in the concerns this scientist has brought about and you find some weight to them. I myself do not condemn or judge another on this issue since there are so many questions not answered about it but when I learned of the aborted fetal tissue I automatically became concerned and I think many others would if they knew. It seems most people I speak to doesn't even know about this as I didn't know until just last year and this has been going for decades. Actually, the SPCI has been trying to get our government to pass law requiring manufacturers and distributors to inform the public of this on their labels or whatever. See actual language of law proposed here.
Here is a recent blog post that got me interested in the issue titled Vaccines made with fetal cells causing autism? as of late. And here are the conclusions that both the blogger and the scientist made that leaves some haunting questions.
Blogger said: "virus-laden DNA of aborted babies could be wreaking havoc on the DNA of healthy children is completely plausible."
And SPCI: "Shouldn't we determine whether injecting residual human fetal DNA into our children is safe, or not?"
Lastly, you can call me wacky on this but just follow my reasoning.
1) God says in the scriptures to not touch another dead human body, bone or grave or else you are unclean till evening or something like that and (again the stretch
) that we are injecting our children with dead residual human DNA in vaccines.
Then I was naturally concerned about vaccines cultured in animal tissue and whether or not that is an issue. The scientist answered in part one of my concerns that our body will fight off foreign residual DNA. So great but then I remembered there were certain animals that God in the scriptures said to not touch there dead carcass so maybe there should be a concern there. So if we are reasoning with assumption 1) and the stretch
then is there a problem with other animal tissue that the Bible considers unclean. The Bible talks specifically about certain animals to not touch their dead carcasses and one being the pig.
And then I found out that just 3 weeks ago a vaccine cultured in pig tissue was suspended because of a virus found in it in which the FDA as of 04/07/2010 has concluded: "does not know how DNA from PCV1 came to be present in Rotarix”
or whether “this means that intact virus is present. Additional studies are being conducted
for more on that.
I found this video that is from the above link and am inserting it here as you read the rest of the post.
So maybe we need to stop culturing our vaccines in animal tissue that God says in the scriptures to not touch or else you are unclean for so many days.
Now I am no scientist and my biblically inspired theory would need to be tested cause it may not be what God really intended cause there is "the stretch
" that I am making and there may be other stretches and this may not be God's intention at all. But it reminded me of different scientific discoveries that proved the scriptures correct in sanitary areas like the scientist in France discovering washing his hands over running water rather than still water and the scriptures talk about just that. Anyways, these are just some interesting findings that I wanted to pass on to you and see what you think. I know you have plenty to do so if you don't respond at all that is ok but these are issues Vena and I are struggling with and have come to some resolve but are still investigating and waiting for further scientific discoveries.
