Vaccines Contain Fetal Cells

Life size replica of baby at 12 week gestation.

Many deny. Dr Richard Pan stated in the CA legislature (was he under oath??) that it was a myth that vaccines contain aborted human fetal cells. Many doctors state something similar. Even a well known Christian author who writes science text books, denies the use of aborted fetal cells in vaccines. Dr Paul Offit, a primary vaccine spokesperson, actually admits the use of fetal cells, but said there were only 2 abortions involved and they were a long time ago.

Watch this 5 min video excerpt where Dr Stanley Plotkin admits that well over 76 abortions took place in the development of the Varicella, Rubella, MMR, and Hepatitis A vaccines. His testimony is part of a 9 hour deposition which he volunteered to do in a child custody case in Michigan involving vaccines in January 2018. He confirms in this statement that his experiments involved lung tissue, skin tissue, tongue tissue, and tissue from other body parts of these healthy babies who were aborted at 3+ months gestation.

Perhaps most surprising is Dr Plotkin’s complete disregard – at any point in his illustrious vaccine career – to investigate whether injecting human DNA fragments could have a deleterious nonspecific effect (unintended consequences, in lay terms). In correspondence, he dismisses the extensive work of Dr Theresa Deischer who notes clear signals in the population after the introduction of vaccines containing aborted fetal cell fragment debris. I summarized some of her conclusions in a previous blog. On what basis does he dismiss her? She’s well known to be Anti-Vax. I don’t think she started out against vaccines, but she allowed the science to influence her opinion of vaccine safety – which any honest scientist would do.

Dr Plotkin admits being an atheist and shows disdain for those having a religious conviction against the principle of using aborted human cells for scientific experimentation. The vaccine package inserts list aborted fetal cell fragments in the ingredients. And here, the man who states publicly that his vaccine text book is more reliable than the Bible, admits there were a very large number of abortions involved in the development of vaccines.

Would you buy your baby shoes made with human baby skin?

Is it ok to have human fetal cells in any product?

It is clear that abortions provided a foundation for vaccine science and that vaccines continue to contain aborted fetal cell fragments. You can find more details here.

Christians. We need to talk. Do you think injecting babies with both male and female DNA fragments is a good idea? Do we NEED this procedure in order to keep our babies healthy? How is this different from sacrificing babies to Molech? I’d love to hear your views.

My goal is not to provoke guilt in anyone. We don’t know what we don’t know. But please, do not let your actions, guided by the medical advice you received, continue to dominate your current outlook. Young parents need wise information. Young Christian families depend on Christians they look up to. We owe it to them to be fully informed. Can we really afford to ONLY listen to the spokespeople for the $60 billion vaccine industry? Please take a few hours to review this critically important topic.

A Choice

A song I heard recently resonated in my heart: “I need You to soften my heart. I need You to open my eyes, to pierce through the darkness, expose the lies and deception.” I think I added some words, but you get the idea! Here is the song in case you want to start worshipfully. It’s all about surrender and trusting that God loves you.

I’m just a mom, and now a grandmother, trying to figure out what is truly healthy for babies and children. I’ve been at this for a long time, since about 1982 when I found out God was blessing my husband and I with our first child.

Imagine this scenario:

There is a disease. It may make some people sick. A very small number of people may die if they get it. The disease can be spread from one person to another, but self-imposed separation can reduce the spread, and most people will recover fully and obtain lifelong protection and never get that disease again.

Now, some smart people didn’t want to see people suffering. They didn’t have confidence in the body’s self-healing mechanisms. They considered themselves able to circumvent God’s design. They developed a ‘preventative measure’ against the disease.

This ‘preventative measure’ may prevent someone from getting the disease, but it is known that it will kill some previously healthy people – we know that some percentage will die from receiving this ‘preventative measure.’ And, it will cause lifelong damage and suffering to an undetermined, but substantial, number of people.

Which do you choose?

Please bear in mind that there are other ways of helping to reduce the impact of the disease and shorten the duration of suffering – ways that are completely safe and beneficial.

What do you choose? The man-made ‘preventative measure’ that WILL kill and harm some? Or, the potential risk of getting the disease, and using known safe measures to treat it?

What number of healthy people dying will it take before the ‘preventative measure’ is unthinkable?

There are many ways of reducing the duration and severity of the illness, which do not result in death or life-long impairment. Would you choose these? Or would you choose the ‘preventative measure’ that will kill and seriously harm some?

Your child could be one of the ones harmed.

But, the plot thickens…

What if you knew that this ‘preventative measure’ is built on the lives of aborted babies, and the final product contains DNA fragments from the cells of those babies?

More on that in the next blog

Before we choose a ‘preventative measure’ that has the known capacity to kill some, we need to research that preventative measure extremely carefully, paying close attention to who is providing the information, and what they may possible gain from their connection to the ‘preventative measure’.

A Loving Entreaty

I seek to lovingly make my case for why a person thoroughly convinced that vaccines are absolutely essential “because they have saved the lives of millions of children,” should re-evaluate their firmly held ideas about vaccines.

I am absolutely convinced. You are also absolutely convinced. One of us is wrong.

I am not accusing you of causing harm to children. I am not trying to load you with a burden of guilt. I am not assaulting your character, your competence, or your training. I am simply asking you to reexamine your stance on vaccines and ask yourself before God, “Is it possible that I could have been deceived?”

I come to this topic not as a doctor, but as a mother, a grandmother, a breastfeeding counsellor eager to help moms raise a healthy baby, and as a citizen journalist seeking to uncover the truth.

But mostly, I come to this topic as a devoted follower and believer in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit opened my eyes in 1980 to accept God’s grace and salvation though Jesus. As a thoroughly rebellious individual, I wholeheartedly dived into grace, seeking God’s direction, through the Holy Spirit, towards truth in every area of my life. Hard decisions were made easier because of my past wrong choices that were primarily guided by adhering to cultural norms. I questioned every culturally accepted practise, especially where it pertained to the babies God blessed my husband and I with.

Trying to change the mind of a resolute vaccine proponent is a huge assignment for which I need some help. I am not a doctor. That doesn’t make me less able to read and understand science and statistics, but it may make me less able to understand how thoroughly entrenched vaccine thinking is amongst those who have undertaken medical training. Thus, I have chosen a doctor who explains in detail his journey as he began asking questions about vaccines, and what he discovered as he explored with an inquiring mind.

Sam Eggertsen, MD

I’ve been accused of not understanding physiology and seeking to benefit from the fact that most of the population is vaccinated, thus keeping myself, my children, and my grandchildren safe from infectious disease even though we refuse vaccines. However, I believe the science that has been uncovered in the last 15 years presents facts showing the foundation for injecting vaccines is faulty. Dr Suzanne Humphries has done more research on vaccines than any medical professional known and does a brilliant job explaining both the physiology of the human body, detailed analysis of the most recent science available, and the mechanism of vaccines in light of the latest understanding of the gut microbiome, the blood brain barrier, aluminum safety, and many other topics. It will take some time to listen and comprehend her lectures. Some of her lectures I have watched and taken notes four times or more. If you are honestly interested in finding out the true state of vaccine safety and efficacy in light of all the recent science discovered, you can find a lot more of Dr Humphries’ videos for free on Youtube. She has also written two excellent books, Dissolving Illusions (a detailed historical analysis of polio) and Rising From the Dead (a fantastic autobiography reflecting on her training in medicine and her journey to question her training) both available on Amazon. One of the most exciting aspects of Dr Humphries’ story is her coming to find a relationship with Jesus Christ after she began her search for truth in the vaccine realm which she describes in her autobiography.

Suzanne Humphries, MD

There are so many reasons to be skeptical about vaccine safety. Each topic could be a complete book. I will list some of the most powerful, compelling points which convinced me that vaccines deserve to be questioned:

  1. Absolute immunity. The makers of vaccines were granted absolute immunity from lawsuits for any type of damage caused by their products in 1986. This has seriously reduced the motivation for manufacturers to ensure the safety of vaccines. It is a business plan to die for: a product recommended to millions, yet no liability.
  2. Acknowledged harm. Since 1988, after vaccine makers received protection, nearly $4 billion has been paid by the HHS to victims of vaccine injury and death. HHS was charged with the mantel of vaccine safety by the same act of Congress, which gave protection to the makers, and the VICP (Vaccine Injury Compensation Program) was set up to compensate for known and expected vaccine harm.
  3. Lack of safety studies. In July 2018 HHS confirms they have not conducted any safety reports or studies on the improved safety of vaccines in over 30 years, as they were charged by Congress to do in 1986.
  4. Bloated schedule. In 1986 children were recommended to have a small number of vaccines. Since the makers have been protected from liability, the recommended vaccine schedule has ballooned. Children are now recommended to receive 72 vaccines by 18 years for 18 different infectious illnesses.
  5. Manufacture and delivery errors. Vaccine manufacture in inherently unsafe. Cold supply delivery chain is essential for many vaccines. Unsafe batches and unsafe delivery is a very real risk. The Cutter Incident and the Wyeth memo reveal some history of unsafe vaccines in the USA. Additionally, today many vaccines are made in China and the USA FDA has no jurisdiction over the safety. Chinese vaccines have had several serious wide-spread problems. An Italian study in 2017 demonstrates serious contamination in most vaccines analysed. []
  6. Administrative errors become increasingly problematic with the bloated schedule of vaccines given. In Texas a 4-month-old baby was given her recommended vaccines and was also injected with the HPV vaccine intended for her older brother. All the vaccines were put on a tray and all injected into baby. The doctor received no disciplinary action. The mother struggled with baby’s health. All connection to vaccines was denied, and CPS was called to initiate the removal of baby from the mother’s care. Sheila Ealey recounts how in 2000 her son, a twin, was given both MMR vaccines, as well as the DTaP and HIB at their routine one-year doctors visit. Somehow the office staff intended to give MMR shots to each twin, but injected her son with two MMR vaccines. He is severely neurologically impaired, while his twin sister excels in many areas. Administrative errors happen.
  7. Aluminum. There are many questionable ingredients in vaccines, perhaps in small amounts, too many to focus on in this list. One of the more troubling ingredients in vaccines is aluminum, added purposefully as an adjuvant in much larger quantities to ramp up the body’s immune response. If an infant receives all the vaccines on the CDC recommended schedule, the will be injected with 4,925 mcg of aluminum  by 18 months of life. The FDA stipulates a safe limit for intravenous feeding of 25 mcg per day. The aluminum content and quantity in vaccines has never been studied for safety or long-term impact. Current aluminum ‘studies’ are based on ingested aluminum in an adult. More on aluminum, by world renowned aluminum expert, Dr Christopher Exley, Keele University: []
  8. Human DNA fragments. Many vaccines are derived from the use of aborted human fetal cells. While attempts are made to remove these cells from the final vaccine product, there remains residual contamination of DNA fragments of both male and female aborted babies. The practise of developing pharmaceutical products from aborted fetal tissue may be abhorrent to many, but purposefully injecting DNA into infants with no long-term safety testing is proving to be extremely problematic and perhaps contributory to a host of issues, including auto-immune disorders and NDD. “In the US, autism has spiked up in 3 distinct years, called changepoints. The first changepoint occurred in 1981, the second in 19881, and the third in 1996. These spikes coincide with the introduction of vaccines that are produced in human fetal cells.” Dr Theresa Deisher
  9. Deception and Greed. Jeremiah warned us thousands of years ago, “the heart of man is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked, who can know it.”Many of the NT writers also warn of deception based on greed. Here is just one example: “But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them – bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.” 2 Peter 2:1-3. Throughout history people with power have sought to control, gain wealth, and gain more power through taking advantage of others. The reality of companies seeking profit over health is just as real today and can be easily verified by the track record of pharmaceutical companies and prescription drugs – for which lawsuits can be brought. If pharmaceutical manufacturers have pled guilty, or been fined billions of dollars in cases of purposefully perpetuating harm on a population in order to profit through the sale of a specific drug, why do we trust them absolutely in the area of vaccine manufacture? Jesus told us to judge by the fruit. Is the fruit of the pharmaceutical company above reproach? “Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing but inside are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them.” Matt 7:15
  10. Unavoidably unsafe. The US Supreme Court ruled that vaccines were unavoidably unsafe, yet the media, the CDC, local pharmacies, doctors, and nurses continue to tell the public that “vaccines are safe and effective.” Somewhere, somehow, there is a disconnect. Both statements cannot be true. []
  11. VAERS. While the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System is a passive reporting system and cannot be an absolute marker of true vaccine reactions, the NIH estimates it accurately reflects only 1% of actual vaccine adverse events because most cases are not reported.
  12. Media slant. Orchestrated campaigns and the full weight of media seek to drive home one message. Why can’t their be rational discussion and honest questions on the topic of vaccine safety?
  13. Legislative Onslaught driven by Pharmaceutical companies. In the name of ‘safety for the children’ nearly every state is facing rabid lawmakers seeking to push through obviously pharma favorable bills.
  14. Fraud. Admitted fraud by the CDCWhistleblower, Dr William Thompson and the two scientists working on the MMR vaccine for Merck. Paul Thorsen is a major author of papers promoted by the CDC as proving vaccine safety, yet is wanted on many criminal counts by the FBI. See this 22 page report on the criminal activity of this CDC researcher:
  15. Myth of Herd Immunity. Disease rates and vaccine rates in 1980 were low. Most adults were not up-to-date on vaccines, thus did not posses vaccine acquired immunity. Basically, because the overall vaccine rate in the population there was no ‘herd immunity’, yet there were not widespread outbreaks of disease. Herd immunity is a term that only accurately applies to the immunity acquired via natural exposure to diseases such as measles.
  16. Hepatitis B shot given to newborns on the first day of life. Please investigate this one vaccine. Why are mothers who test negative for Hepatitis B still encouraged to give their babies the Hep shot on the first day of life? This disease is well known to be primarily transmitted through sharing needles and sex. Why does a 24 hour old baby get injected? This vaccine contains 250 mcg of aluminum and has never been studied for long-term safety. Recent studies show a potential increase in neurological developmental disorders in animals who received the vaccine equivalent for their weight. These studies were repeated and the team found a latency period suggesting that greater neurological harm develops over time. This finding needs urgent attention. Until conclusive results are found, vaccine recommendation for babies of Hepatitis B negative mothers should be halted immediately. []
  17. SV40. Polio vaccines administered in the 1960s were contaminated with a cancer causing virus, simian virus 40. []
  18. Vibrant health of non-vaccinated individuals. It is so obvious and it speaks for itself. Doctors who have a large non-vaccinated population note they are the healthiest of all the children they see by far. Non vaccinated individuals with adequate nutrition, clean water, and a healthy life-style are utilizing their God-given innate immune system for protection against illness. Additionally, breastfeeding is the designed method to feed babies and passes on immunological benefits that last a life-time.

If after investigating each of these 18 points, you are still absolutely convinced of the necessity and goodness of vaccines, we may just have to agree to disagree. I do not believe we should expose even one healthy child to harm in the hope of protecting many. The reality is that we may be exposing a far higher percentage to harm than we every thought possible.

I am absolutely convinced. You are absolutely convinced. One of us is wrong. One day, before God, we will find out.

This decision – whether to question vaccine safety and history or accept the mainstream point of view – is critically important to your personal health, your family’s health, generations to come, and our culture as a whole. Paul’s admonishment to the Ephesians seems appropriate to keep in mind as we delve into this topic:

Let no one deceive you with empty arguments, for God’s wrath is coming on the disobedient because of these things. Therefore, do not become their partners. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of the light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible – and everything that is illuminated becomes a light… Be very careful, then, how you live – not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:6-13; 15-16

Pediatrician Speaks Openly About Vaccine Harm

Dr Bob Zajac is a board certified pediatrician. Prior to his seven years of medical training, he earned a PhD in Special Education. He also earned a MBA. He is highly qualified to speak on the neurological impact of vaccines AND the amount of income potential that can be generated by vaccines.

Dr Zajac admits to being a former vaccine bully, believing vaccines confer immortality and not giving vaccines would cause all the babies in the world to die. He regrettably confesses that he knew very little about the vaccines he was pushing, but that all changed when he experienced vaccine injury first hand in his patients. He witnessed a perfectly normal baby regress into severe autism after his twelve month vaccines. He also had a baby die a few hours after receiving vaccines which was attributed by the coroner, without questioning, to SIDS.

Dr Bob is the father of eight children and along the way he became more cautious about giving vaccines to his own children and refused to give any new vaccines recently released on the market. He started to realize that the vaccine injury rate is far greater than admitted by the CDC. Once he started to read the vaccine inserts, and review published science, he was appalled to realize that there were far more assumptions about vaccine safety than actual scientific proof. Many aspects of safety have not been studied at all, and some aspects are studied, but in quite small numbers, yet these vaccines are routinely given to millions of healthy babies.

Dr Bob graciously admits many parents know a lot more about vaccine science than he does since they may spend hours every day researching the topic. This is a dramatic shift from the arrogance he possessed early in his medical career.

Some other critically important points made by Dr Bob Zajac:

  • The fully vaccinated children in his practice are the sickest, partially vaccinated are healthier, but the healthiest by far are the non-vaccinated.
  • The estimated lost profit to his clinic because of not pushing vaccines and allowing non vaccinated patients is now around $1.7 million each year. He gets reduced rates from insurance because of reduced numbers of fully vaccinated children.
  • A profit is made on each shot given.
  • Discussing vaccines with parents costs a clinic more in productivity.
  • Informed consent and patient choice is essential, yet is missing in most doctor-patient interactions regarding vaccines.
  • Pediatricians and those who give vaccines declare that vaccines are safe, yet they are hurting children. They don’t know the harm they are inflicting.
  • The vaccine industry is the only industry in this country with no liability. Accountability for vaccines is the only way to drive safety.
  • As a faith based person, Dr Bob is stressed about end times when he will have to answer about how he treats the children in his practice. This inspires and motivates him to continue vaccine safety education with his patients even if it means reduced revenue for his clinic.

Dr Zajac is one of a growing number of doctors taking the time to inform themselves of the actual science regarding vaccines, and speaking out about vaccine harm. He is a true hero.

A compendium for my expectant friends

Our oldest grandson born to our oldest son and his wife in 2012.

Dear Friend

I’ve got so much on my heart to share with you. I’ve been working on presenting information for new parents, especially moms, since 2013. I’m not sure I’ve got the presentation exactly right. I don’t know everything. I struggle to adequately share the passion of my heart. Sometimes I feel I might be too passionate. I don’t want to alienate new parents, but perhaps I have.

It’s just that the stakes are pretty high. Listening to the wrong advice can impact our whole life. I try to avoid giving advice. I urge new parents to investigate and understand everything – from car seat safety to medicalised births, and all procedures that are recommended for new babies. Don’t take anything for granted, especially when there are major industries involved.

Since my first baby was born I have been passionate about breastfeeding, one of the most empowering acts a woman can do.

The wonders of breastfeeding are far-reaching and well documented, yet, despite what we know, the actual breastfeeding rates are quite low. Woman are not getting helpful information or the support they need to be successful in breastfeeding their babies. I truly don’t believe it is a failure on the part of women, but a failure on the part of our culture and society. Many times a new mother’s attempts to breastfeed can be complicated by standards of care for pregnant, laboring, and new moms. Misinformation abounds in our society. If every mother and father fully understood how breastfeeding impacts life-long health and well-being, they would be far more committed to searching out information on how to be successful. Listening and following the wrong information could sabotage your best attempts in breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding is a learned art. Breastfeeding is best learned from someone who has been successful at breastfeeding, has helped other mothers reach their own goals for breastfeeding, and has enjoyed the process. All five of my babies and all six of my grandchildren have been breastfed. My daughter-in-law has told me many times that I need to write a book for young moms who are trying to navigate the world of motherhood.

Here are some of my blogs I’ve prepared for someone just like you. I pray you will browse, check out my sources, dig a little deeper, and come to your own conclusions. I am always available to discuss anything. I try to keep an open mind and dig for the truth. I share with you because I care about you and the health and happiness of your future babies.

Our oldest granddaughter born to our second son and his wife in 2010.

Many friends have shared information with me along my journey of motherhood which began in 1982. I am thankful they did. Motherhood is perhaps the most difficult yet most significant job we will ever have in life. I’ve never met anyone who wanted to be a bad mother. I’ve never met anyone who wanted a miserable baby. Yet I’ve met many mothers who face profound discouragement and when they trace back their journey they often find it was because of poor advice they were given early in their motherhood career. I pray you will find strength in your motherhood journey and have wisdom to discern what is best for you and your baby.



Here are some suggestions on places to start on specific topics. You could consider it something like a table of contents in a book.

10 Not so frequently shared facts regarding Circumcision

Circumcision is a very hot topic. So hot, in fact, that many parent health forums on Facebook completely ban it from discussion and all posts using the word are deleted. Discussing the genitals of males seems to elicit strong emotion from all angles. For this reason, I believe a lot of people have never really taken a serious look at the discussion — have never investigated the true facts for themselves. My toddler grandson was able to get away from his mother during a diaper change at a church social gathering and enjoyed the freedom of walking around naked. There were several young fathers who noticed him and remarked amongst themselves, “He must be European.” Between them they had seven sons. They totally accepted that the American way is to cut off the foreskin.

1. Circumcision practiced today is NOT the same as Biblical circumcision. Firstly I want to address the actual word. The word circumcision is a familiar term to Christians and people familiar with the Torah or religious practices of Abraham’s descendants. The use of the word in our modern context is not at all the same. The procedure performed on infants today, predominantly in the US, should more appropriately be known as foreskin or prepuce amputation. Many people refer to it as genital mutilation.

Language is critically important in this discussion. The practice introduced to Abraham was not the same practice performed in US hospitals today. During Abraham’s time no one could imagine the complete amputation of an infant’s foreskin. This is part of the reason that ancient artistic depictions of the infant Jesus show him to be intact. ( Of course the fact of Jesus’ circumcision according to the Jewish law was never questioned, but the procedure was one of a slight cutting of the foreskin which left the appearance of an intact organ. Biblical circumcision was a cutting of the foreskin, not a cutting off of the entire prepuce.

2. Rate of death from the modern practice of foreskin amputation is approximately one infant every two days in the US. According to those who have researched documented cases of death where the stated cause is circumcision, approximately every second day a baby boy dies as a result of circumcision complications. The actual number may be far higher, as circumcision is not always listed as the cause of death. Deaths may be attributed to a secondary cause such as infection or bleeding, which would never have occurred without the surgical procedure of cutting off the foreskin. Parents are rarely warned that there is a real risk of death from the trauma, or from the bleeding.

MORBIDITY: Deaths from circumcision and its complications are estimated at 229 per year based on a ratio from a British study. There are about 178 times the number of circumcision deaths than schoolyard violent deaths each year.

3. The US is the only country with high rates of routine infant foreskin removal. Prevalence of circumcision in other countries according to the WHO is ±30% of the total male population. Parents in the US are completely oblivious to the rate of circumcision throughout the world.

“The strange truth is that the U.S. is the sole country in the world where a large majority of its male population is routinely circumcised at birth for non-religious reason.”

“The neonatal circumcision rate peaked in the U.S. in the late 1960s, at around 80-90%. Since then, the procedure has been slowly declining—in part due to the skepticism of parents who no longer place blind faith in the medical establishment and in part due to the profession’s own writings.”

Good news: “The intact rate among newborn males in the U.S. has increased from 15 percent in 1965 to 44.5 percent in 2006. This is an increase of 294 percent.”

4. The positive role of the foreskin. The foreskin is an organ that the majority of men in the US have not experienced. “Removing this healthy, vital, fully functioning organ from a non-consenting person will forever change the sexuality of this future adult man and his partner.” The intact foreskin provides external protection, self-cleansing, internal self-protection, immunological protection, antibacterial function, coverage during erection, erogenous sensitivity, sexual functions, and self lubrication. Foreskin removal deprives a man of these benefits.

5. There are no health benefits from routine infant foreskin removal. Circumcision has no justifiable benefits and is in fact harmful – from pain and suffering to surgical botches to reduced maternal-child bonding and interfering with breastfeeding. Medical authorities throughout the world consider circumcision medically unnecessary and unethical. Botched circumcisions can cause trauma for boys and men throughout their lives.

6. Blood loss is a serious risk of routine foreskin amputation, especially for infants. Parents are not adequately warned of this danger. Losing a small amount of blood results in a significant loss of a baby’s total blood volume. “An eight pound baby only needs to lose 1 ounce of blood to hemorrhage, and just 2.3 ounces to die as a result of this blood loss. It can, and does, occur at a frighteningly quick pace.” Smaller babies are even more at risk.

7. Baby Foreskin is a highly profitable commodity. Infant foreskins are sold at considerable profits for scientific research, vaccine development, and other consumable uses. Details of the many uses and how to harvest the highly valuable fibroblast cells are discussed here.

8. Baby boys should be like their fathers/brothers/etc.? Performing a surgical amputation is not justified because of a surgical amputation performed on the infant’s father, siblings, or other males. Most of us were taught as children, Two wrongs don’t make a right.

9. Male infants are not able to give informed consent AND the experience is painful and traumatic. The most popular surgical procedure performed on male babies is profoundly stressful, provides no medical benefit, and can impair breastfeeding and thus long-term health, yet it is completely cosmetic.

10. There is no current Biblical imperative for Christians to circumcise their infant. In fact, the imperative is to love and treat others the way you would want to be treated. Part of the parental role is to investigate every single medical procedure recommended for your baby and ask questions. Any procedure that provides an income stream to hospitals, doctors, and research labs is going to be promoted. Get the facts. I encourage you to read the entire letter Paul wrote to the Galatians, especially chapter 5 and 7. Here are the highlights:

“But if I still proclaim circumcision … then the stumbling block of the cross has been abolished.” 

“I wish that those who are pushing you to do so would mutilate themselves!”

“And even those who advocate circumcision don’t really keep the whole law. They only want you to be circumcised so they can brag about it and claim you as their disciples.” 

“For neither circumcision nor uncircumcision matters. Rather, what matters is being a new creation.”

Galatians 5:11, 12; 6:13, 15

“Cutting off a functional, protective, and sensitive body part is a far-reaching decision that the vast majority of Europeans believe should be left to its owner when he becomes old enough to understand the consequences. Despite the recent, backward-looking statements by U.S. medical organizations, more and more Americans are beginning to agree.” Morten Frisch, M.D., Danish epidemiologist

“Genital cutting and the amputation of a healthy, functioning body organ from a non-consenting human being is a severe violation of human rights. If we did such a thing to a dog, we would be charged with animal abuse.”

Who Me?

“As high as the heavens are about the earth, so are My thoughts higher than your thoughts and My ways higher than your ways.” Isaiah 55:9

What does God desire? Is there ONE thing God desires more than anything else?

Repentance. What is it? A recognition and acknowledgment that I have done wrong, that I have been pursuing the wrong path. Even my best efforts, my noblest deeds, apart from my Creator, are of no credit or value to Him. HE must be my starting point, my inspiration.

True repentance denotes a change of mind. Not a whimsical change, an enduring, lasting change. I must realize I am not good; I need a new heart and mind to even grasp what defines ‘good.’ Jesus clearly stated that we cannot embrace God, our Creator, without fully accepting and embracing Jesus Himself. Refusing to repent of the basic flaws in our thinking prevents us from fully receiving all the Creator desires to bestow on us.

Repentance is HARD! It challenges us to the core of who we think we are. The older we are, the more challenging it will be, because the foundation of all we profess to know about ourselves and the world around us, must shift to allow the light of Jesus Christ to re-interpret everything.

How do I being? Honestly. Perhaps like this,

“Lord God, my Maker, I don’t really believe my biggest problem is me, or that I need to repent. But I have a desire burning in my heart to know You, to please You, and to do good. Help me start where I am. Reveal Yourself and Your truth to me. I’m not convinced that Jesus is the exclusive access point to You, but I’m willing to explore. Since You designed me and all I see, I accept that You are higher and greater. If You indeed can be known by me, I accept Your offer. Lead me.”

The Biggest Deception

Society has been sanitized.
Cleansed from vital information.
Our culture contrives to conceal
Two critically important facts:
Our Creator and our enemy.
The King of glory,
Creator, Designer, and ruler of all,
In whom justice and mercy
Perfectly balance,
Full of grace and truth,
Seeks to restore, heal, empower, and guide
Every individual who surrenders.
Yet at every point the enemy seeks
To twist, distort, hide, and ignore
The reality of our Creator
And His absolute love for us.
The enemy tempts with counterfeit pleasures.
Feed our appetites;
Feed our desires.
Seeks to obliterate knowledge of God,
Through lies and deception,
Starting with the very young.
The enemy leads us to follow
Our own lusts and passions;
Distractions abound;
Desensitization to his methods
From earliest childhood.
By any and all means,
The enemy of our souls
Seeks to keep us disconnected
From our Creator.
He may lure with wealth, success, satisfaction
Yet hates us with a
Malignant malevolent furious contempt.
Don’t be fooled.
He is a deceiver.
Correctly understanding these
Two essential foundational realities
Changes everything.
Reframes our reality
In its true context.
My life, for the glory of God alone.

I reflect on these things with thankfulness knowing that through Jesus, I have been “rescued from the dominion of darkness and brought into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom I have redemption the forgiveness of sins.” (Colossians 1:13-14)

Father Yearning

father-handA guest blog by my friend, Marcella Piper-Terry, who powerfully conveys the intrinsic desperate need we all have for the love of our father. Our heart’s yearning for love and acceptance from our earthly father, is a mirror of the hunger placed in our heart to know and be accepted by our Father in heaven. Many will never know the love or have a relationship with an earthly father, but a relationship with our heavenly Father is an open invitation to all. If you can relate to father hurt, at any level, I urge you to seek your heavenly Father with all your heart, soul and mind.

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord… Jeremiah 29:12-14

There’s this man…
He was the first man in my life.
He was the first man to break my heart.
When he left, I felt abandoned, unloved, confused, afraid, and very angry. For a very long time.
I couldn’t let him go.
He moved on.
I couldn’t let him go.
He disappeared and in the vapor that was left behind were the ghosts of my needs. Reaching. Clawing at the nothingness.
Until I found a substitute. Who also moved on, and who repeated the abandonment and inflicted the same pain on our son.
But there was still this man.
I loved him.
I couldn’t let him go.
Even though he let me go.
I couldn’t let him go.
Over decades, I called. He hung up.
I tracked him down and rang his doorbell with my baby on my hip.
He didn’t recognize me.
Over decades.
More than 40 years.
I couldn’t let him go.
Then it happened.
My phone rang.
He was back.
And now, only a handful of years later, he is leaving me again.
And I am here. With him. In his world.
Learning who this man is.
Learning about his life, his perceptions of the world and the people he has known and loved. Learning about the parts of me that come from him.
Please pray for God to give me strength and to fill my heart with love, acceptance, and forgiveness as I spend what will most likely be my final visit with my father.
He is so many things.
He is handsome, charismatic, intelligent, artistic, and beautifully… humanly… incredibly flawed.
And I love him.

Choice & Belief

6 needles croppedThe overriding issue in the vaccine debate is choice. Many highly educated doctors and parents, who take the time to closely dissect the research behind ‘vaccine science’, develop deep concerns.

Anyone who desires the truth and wants to understand vaccines should start simply by reading the vaccine ingredient list. The ingredients of each vaccine can be found in the complete vaccine package insert (VPI) provided in the box from the manufacturers – not the “info sheet” that the CDC has prepared and that your doctor will have in his office. You can read all the package inserts on the FDA’s own website. Section 11 of every VPI contains the ingredients. Look up the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) on each ingredient.

When discussing vaccine ingredients, many who are pro-vaccine repeat (ad nauseam) that the ingredients we eat (i.e. pears) contain more of these toxic chemicals than are in vaccines. This concept deserves deeper consideration. The FDA has standards for safety for the ingestion of many of the ingredients listed in vaccines. However, ingestion is inherently safer than injection because the gastro intestinal tract contains and eliminates toxins rather efficiently. Injecting toxic chemicals intramuscularly is exposing the body to far more harm. The blood system and lymph system is not always able to identify and eliminate harmful ingredients such as aluminum, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, mercury, and Glutaraldehyde.

Vaccines also contain protein and DNA fragments from the growth medium used which could include aborted human fetal tissue, dog tissue, egg tissue, monkey kidney cell tissue, etc. Apart from the ethical issues raised by these methods of vaccine development, especially for those who maintain a ‘pro-life’ or vegan standpoint, very little scientific study has been done to determine the impact of injecting these fragments of foreign material into the muscle of a small baby. One study on the elimination of aluminum by infants after receiving vaccines containing aluminum adjuvants showed that it was not excreted in the urine and was not measurable in the blood in the two weeks following the injection. Where was it? Since the researchers did not find it excreted by the body, the obvious question that one would think they would be eager to ask and answer is, “Where is the aluminum and what is it doing?” Further studies have not been published, so the answer is conjecture, but seems obvious. The aluminum must be in the tissue, brain, other vital organs, or bone since it was not eliminated into the blood system or urine.

The point is that we are regularly injecting babies with a host of harmful ingredients with blind faith that these vaccines will be safe and will prevent a range of “vaccine preventable disease.” What is the truth?

There is a risk associated with every medical procedure. The US Supreme Court has ruled that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.” Those were their exact words. Where there is a risk, there must be a choice.

The state of California passed a bill which made a significant change in the ability of families to have a choice in giving a potentially harmful medical procedure to their babies and children if they want to participate in schools.

The rationale behind this push to force vaccines on all children is hard to grasp. A healthy child who has not received the Hepatitis B vaccine (which is given in three doses and contains 0.25 mg of aluminum per dose) cannot attend school in California, Mississippi, and West Virginia, yet a child diagnosed with an active case of Hepatitis B can go to school and no one would ever know, because that child’s medical status is protected by law as privileged medical information – and rightfully so. But is this logical?

A further question that must be asked by those considering vaccines is, “Do vaccines even prevent the diseases for which they are intended?” Recent incidents of multiple outbreaks of various diseases in the mostly vaccinated populations in both the USA, India, and China demonstrate that the vaccines are not delivering on their promised protection from infectious diseases.

Most parents who find themselves strongly opposed to mandatory vaccines were once quite pro-vaccine. They have learned through a long difficult experience that sometimes what you think is good for your child can actually cause a great deal of harm. In fact, for some families who have watched their child die immediately following a ‘well’ baby visit where they received multiple vaccines given at one time injected into the thighs while they helped hold baby down, the guilt is enormous. They were not told that the CDC recommended shot schedule has never been tested for safety. Many vaccines have been added to the schedule without ever considering the combined impact of multiple vaccines on the infant’s body.

Other families have watched their precious baby regress in their previous abilities and become challenged with numerous physical symptoms demonstrating severe damage in the body. When they return to the same doctor who gave their baby the vaccines, and ask for help to understand and fix the host of symptoms, those same doctors deny any connection to vaccines and often dismiss them from their practice. The doctors are unable to address the myriad of physical symptoms resulting from vaccines, from non-stop diarrhea, constipation, neurological digression, seizures, tics, head banging, loss of speech, failure to thrive, etc. Parents recognize something is severely wrong with their child and are left helpless. They know their child is in pain and the severe gastrointestinal connection is obvious, but they don’t know where to begin to heal or fix the damage caused by vaccines.

Parents are left with the aftermath of a debilitated child and absolutely no support. The vaccine manufacturer is indemnified. No matter what happens after a vaccine, the manufacturer is not responsible. The CDC, who recommends nearly 80 vaccines to all children during their childhood, is also free from liability. The doctor and/or nurses who inject the vaccines have no legal responsibility for what happens, and further, are deeply indoctrinated that vaccines are ‘safe and effective’ and thus often cannot recognize the overwhelmingly obvious impact of the vaccine on the overall health of the child in front of them. They do not want to see it, and they have no understanding of how to help heal the child.

Do you believe in vaccines? That’s an interesting word. It seems a word that should be connected with a religion. Perhaps it is. Perhaps the whole system of vaccination promoted by the western medical system is just a man-made religious system.

This information is not designed to make you feel guilty for what you did or didn’t do as a parent. 99% of all parents want the best for their child. Every action towards our infant is done from the depths of our loving hearts. We want the BEST for our babies. Sometimes we are misled by those we trust and respect. They may be misled because they respect the ‘experts’ who perhaps have undisclosed vested interests, or complete ignorance. Doctors are generally very busy and don’t have time to research each topic in depth. They trust “experts” to do unbiased analysis and evaluations. It is time for more unbiased science to fully examine all the facts surrounding the vaccine debate.

The point of understanding vaccines and the potential harm they can have on babies is to help educate those making this decision today. We can’t change the past, but we can warn the generations to come so that they make wise choices. It’s all about choice.

Here are some excellent resources to help you on your journey towards understanding the vaccine debate:

  • Dr. David Ayoub presents vaccine safety issues and autism causation to a group of doctors who support giving recommended vaccines.
  • Vaxxed the Movie: From Coverup to Catastrophe provides a detailed account of the confessions made by Dr William Thompson, the CDC Whistleblower, interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured children, which reveal an alarming deception that has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime.
  • Dr Suzanne Humphries has spent years and thousands of hours reviewing the science behind vaccines for herself after discovering that the information she received in her medical training was far from thorough. I’ve linked one of her videos here.
  • District Attorney Nico LaHood, with his wife, Davida, tell their story of vaccine injury and their journey to discover and share truth. As a district attorney he has great insight into the role of evidence in drawing conclusions.
