This week New York authorities ordered mandatory vaccinations in a Jewish community in Williamsburg/Brooklyn where multiple cases of measles have recently occurred. Read the order or a New York Times article about the measles cases and the decision to mandate vaccines without a religious exemption.
A hearing was scheduled this week in Colorado to debate a bill that would require the health department to mandate all vaccines routinely recommended by the CDC and allows the health department to mandate any other FDA approved vaccines in Colorado. Read the bill here. You may also want to read the testimony of this Harvard immunologist that unvaccinated children do not threaten their communities.
In Maine this week, Democrats voted to repeal exemptions from the laws governing immunization requirements. This means that they do not want any religious exemptions from the vaccine mandates.From the Maine House Republicans Facebook page: “All Committee Republicans today opposed the mandatory immunization bill (LD 798), because it overrides parental consent, violates body autonomy and targets a minority of children and parents seeking to opt out of vaccinations on philosophical and religious grounds.” Rep. Heidi Sampson stated, “This bill targets a minority who represent 5% of our student population for the purpose of segregating and marginalizing a small group of our children using coercive measures and threatens to force them to comply or be expelled. There are more prudent measures we could implement to achieve the accurate data to make the most informed decision.”
Why should it matter to you whether children are forced to be vaccinated and religious exemptions removed from mandatory vaccine requirements?
Most vaccines commonly administered to both adults and children today contain cells derived from the lungs of an aborted girl (named WI-38 at 4 months gestation) and/or an aborted boy (named MRC5 at 3 months gestation). It is likely that many Americans do not know that vaccines began with taking life. Since 1963, these two fetal cell lines have served as components in vaccines for Measles, Adenovirus, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertusis, Polio, Haemophilus influenza type b (HIB), Hepatitis A, Measles, Mumps and Rubella, Varicella (Chickenpox), Rabies, and Shingles. Most people who have received these shots have also received the cellular remains of aborted babies WI-38 or MRC-5, or both.
The cell lines of WI-38 & MRC-5 were extracted from their lungs, which would have otherwise held the breath of God. Dr. Stanley Plotkin discusses his participation regarding the use of 76 aborted children in a video-taped deposition on January 11,
2018. This isn’t just part of history – it is happening today. Why? The process of harvesting newly aborted children to create them is underway around the world, just as China announced in 2015 with the case of WALVAX2 (girl, 3 months gestation). IFA recently published a Special Report Prayer Guide about the development of vaccines with the cells from aborted fetuses.
Use this Special Report to educate your elected officials, especially those who are pro-life, about the vaccines that are being mandated. The measles, mumps, rubella vaccine (MMR) is the only vaccine in the U.S. for which there is no ethical alternative. This is the vaccine required right now in the Orthodox Jewish community of Williamsburg/Brooklyn.
IFA has been working with a national expert on vaccines who has testified in Congress about vaccines. Reflecting on the actions in 3 states, just this week, this is what she wrote us: “The same spirit that drives abortion is driving this . . . . Its goal is not only to kill, steal and destroy life physically, but spiritually also. Less than 500 people nationally in a country of 327+ million people have contracted measles and there have been zero deaths. Is that worth us losing our religious freedom? Is anything worth losing our religious freedom?”
