I am a little nervous about the growing call for mandated vaccines. Full disclosure: I am fully vaccinated, and so are my 5 children. I am by no means an “anti-vaxxer”. But I am certainly not fully on board with “fully vaccinate no matter what”. Last week I recieved a HEALTH Magazine in the mail from Southwest Utah Public Health Foundation. It was filled with good advise for nutrition and exercise. I was mildly interested in the articles until I read the article on Measles written by David W. Blodgett who stated that “It really is almost a crime to allow your children to go unimmunized” and quoted Roald Dahl as stating that parents who do not vaccinate are either obstinate or ignorant. Blodgett went on to say that “all school-aged children…should beg their parents” to immunize them. These statements should cause an audible gasp from any liberty loving American. Some people have done research outside of the college and med school text books. This research includes studies by renouned doctors. They choose not to vaccinate based on the conflict of information or their religious views or perhaps because the evidence they have found is simply too convincing to see otherwise. Name calling these well researched parents “ignorant” and “obstinant” seems rather immature. If a position or platform is correct, then common sense and personal research should bring people to your side. Tywin Lannister of GOT said to the boy king, “Any man who must say, “I am the King“, is no true king.” I feel like anyone who must resort to name calling, begging the children to inform their parents of the propoganda they have been fed and calling it a crime to not do as we are told by the unelected bureaucrats must have something fishy surrounding their idea. If it were good and true and well tried, then people would flock toward it. I am not a pro-vaxxer, or an anti-vaxer. I am simply in support of informed decision. All parents have the God-given right and responsibility to make informed decisions on behald of their children. It is not the job of one doctor in town to call for all minors to run and beg their parents for shots after hearing one story in support of said shots. This is ludicrous! Without reading the brochure, just going from experience from 5 children recieving their measles vaccine, three of the six symptoms Blodgett lists for Measles are side effects of the vaccine. In addition to those 3 side effects, there is a pamphlet listing horrific side effects that go along with the vaccine. Every mother who has ever vaccinated can see the pamphlet. We usually give up after the 7th or 8th side effect and stop reading the pamphlet. Educate yourselves! Find out what both sides are saying. See what might be best for you and your precious children. Do not rely on one side of the issue and refuse to listen to anything else. Below is a list of facts you may find interesting. These were provided by my much more informed friend, Laura Bean.
MMR vaccine is not a risk-free product. It has not been proven safe. It has not been tested for safety via placebo controlled studies. In fact, it’s shown to cause more deaths than the measles itself. Here are just a few statistics and other facts…
➤The odds of dying in America from the measles in the 60’s, before the vaccine existed, was 1/500,000 for all and 1/10,000 in children. In fact, U.S. measles mortality data shows that deaths from measles rapidly declined in the years leading up to when the first vaccine was introduced, validating the success of improved sanitation and better nutrition, especially. By 1963, the death rate from measles in the U.S. had already dropped by approximately 98%. Also, no child has died from the measles in almost 2 decades– since 2003.
➤Going back many decades, 90% of measles cases were not even known because it was such a common childhood illness–most did not go see a doctor.
➤Comparative data provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has shown 449 fatal reports of the mmr vaccine in total. Comparing deaths from the last 10 years, there have been 108 deaths reported from the mmr, while zero deaths have occurred from the actual illness.
➤One of the side effects of the mmr is a case of atypical measles. It’s on the insert itself, along with hundreds more adverse effects, including death and Steven-Johnson’s syndrome.
➤The mmr is manufactured using cell lines that have been inhumanely developed. The process involved slicing into multiple living fetuses to obtain the needed LIVING tissue. At least 79 unborn babies were inhumanely killed to develop just the rubella portion of the mmr.
➤Whole human DNA as well as fragmented DNA has been found in the mmr vaccine.
➤The measles part of the mmr is a live virus and, therefore, has the potentiality to shed and actually spread the vaccine version of measles to others.
➤There is at least a 2-10% failure rate of everyone who gets the mmr. Meaning, they do not develop the antibodies to measles at all. Therefore, complete elimination of measles via mmr vaccination is impossible.
➤Natural, cell-mediated measles immunity has virtually been eliminated in America. We no longer pass the protective immunity onto our babies through mothers because mothers have not had the actual measles/immunity.
➤After genotyping those with measles from the 2015 Disneyland outbreak, 38% of those who had the measles had the vaccine strain! (Journal of Microbiology)
➤Antibodies created via the mmr, have been shown to wane after several years in many individuals.
➤The company who makes the mmr, Merck, is in court for fraud charges for falsifying data regarding the mmr. Merck, along with all vaccine manufacturers, is also not liable for any deaths or damages resulting from it’s products. Merck profits surrounding the distribution of the mmr vaccine, as of May 2019, have increased 27%– $496 million in the first quarter of 2019.
Anyone who truly researches this specific vaccine would concede that measles has been shown to be very beneficial as far as preventing cancer, providing lifelong immunity, and being very helpful to building a robust immune system.
