vaccine warning

Maybe you already knew this, but I certainly didn't. Several vaccines that are given to our children are made using "aborted fetal tissue". I've never thought to ask for an ingredient list before letting my children be vaccinated. I'm pretty sick to my stomach right now. Thankfully, there are some alternative vaccines you can have given instead (although I don't know how easy it is to request a different vaccine brand if your doctor's office carries one of the deplorable ones).

More information here and here. Also, this site better explains what is meant by "aborted fetal tissue" although I don't agree with this person's stance.

And some related news.


  1. *sigh* So sad I know. I'm struggling over this right now. The Church says it's regretable but if one gets the vaccine hey incur no sin because they are so far removed from the actual crime. I would argue howver that even though the fetuses were from the 1960s, it's my understanding they will eventually be exhausted and new fetuses would be needed. What to do?? No, it's not easy to obtain the alternative vaccines. They must be bought in bulk. My guess is and I'm not sure... that insurance might not cover it?? I want to look into this myself. What are you planning on doing? I don't know yet.

  2. Well, it's a little late (esp. for Amelie), but the next time vaccines are due I'm going to do what I can to find the alternative vaccines. Depending on what vaccine it is, I may re-evaluate getting it altogether or postpone it if possible (hoping that more alternative vaccines will be available at the later date).
