I hadn’t planned on writing anything today. In fact I have another post that I’ve been doing research for. And I’m supposed to be packing since the husband and I are moving Saturday morning. However, good ole’ Google Alerts tipped me off to some AMAZING STUPID today and I couldn’t not share. Examiner Long Island published this article a couple weeks ago, in which an idiot author “exposed” the National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) for using aborted human fetuses in vaccinations, thereby exposing innocent children to “contaminated human DNA.”[emphasis mine:]
Before children received so many vaccinations and before vaccines contained aborted fetal DNA, only 1 child out of 10,000 was diagnosed with autism; the rate is now 1 out of 150. Is there a link? Presently there is not enough definitive research to draw a conclusion. Only further, specific research will tell us.
Well, Patty Knap, you could start by looking at the ample evidence that’s been found in regards to the “link” between autism and vaccines. Evidence that states that there is no link. Evidence that exists all over the damn Internet. But that would require you to research facts, admit your mistake and, in this case, redact your pro-lifer agenda.
That’s right, I said pro-lifer agenda. Ms. Knap seems to be getting her information from these people – Children of God for Life – “which provides a detailed list of which vaccinations contain aborted fetal tissue as well as any available pharmaceutical alternative.” Because fundamentalists believe that scientists are so morally corrupt that they line up outside of abortion clinics, waiting for a scoop of mutilated baby carcass to shove into a hypodermic needle.[emphasis mine again:]
The media near-total black out on the issue of aborted baby parts used in vaccines has further kept parents in the dark in terms of informed consent. Â With the exception of Catholic/Christian/Conservative media outlets, there is little coverage of the topic. Apparently it has been, at least up until this point, a non-issue for the FDA.
Good thing we’ve got the triple-C looking out for our best interest! You know… condemning valuable scientific research, claiming the government is going to kill our grandparents, telling us we have to keep all of the future babies we accidentally make. Um, hello, overpopulation will effect Heaven just as much as the earth.
Many parents feel they were not told about the use of aborted fetal tissue in these vaccines, although pharmaceutical product inserts list the ingredients in very fine print. However, the lists are only helpful if you know what the often vague medical terminology means, and naturally it isn’t routine for a parent to ask for the ingredient list. Â Sometimes listed is “human diploid cells” but it is not specified that these cells are actually from aborted babies. Â Many times doctors themselves are unaware. Â Nor has the media wanted to focus on this uncomfortable fact. Â Yet, interestingly, there has been great attention on the mercury-in-vaccinations issue in recent years, particularly with respect to a possible autism link.
I can’t believe it!!11! Give this woman a medal for being so goddamn smart that she knows more about vaccines than doctors do! She’s the first EVAR… on August 8th, anyway. Funny that she finds the ingredient lists unhelpful when it just took me literally 5 seconds to find the CDC’s Immunization Fact Sheet, which is highly informative. It’s actually highly routine anymore for parents to ask for the ingredients lists on pharmaceuticals. People, for one reason or another – unfortunately for many negative reasons, are becoming more informed. What they do with that information is obvious when articles like this surface and sat for 2 weeks without being ripped apart.
Human diploid cells are used in scientific testing… But they are grown in a lab, not ripped from the wombs of promiscuous she-devils who dare to nip their pregnancy in the bud. According to the National Network for Immunization Information, “Vaccines prepared in human diploid cells have proven to be very safe over the past several decades.” There is talk of alternative cells being used to produce vaccines.
However, there is no guarantee that vaccines grown in these alternative cell lines would be as safe and effective as currently licensed vaccines and development is likely to be extremely costly. Thus, there is little incentive for vaccine manufacturers to develop and test new vaccines when an existing licensed vaccine is known to be both safe and effective.
Sounds good to me. And it should sound good to these people, since they’re the same people who think that spending tax money on nationalized healthcare is the worst idea ever. Why should they want to replace something that already works perfectly freaking fine? Oh, right. Because apparently the link between vaccines and autism is the “contaminated human DNA.” If you’re preggo with an autistic kid and abort it, those cells are going to be implanted into a perfectly healthy child. Or not at all.
Because, you know, having someone else’s DNA implanted in your body causes you to mutate. Like Peter Parker. Or in this case, like Jenny McCarthy’s son Evan. His indigo senses are tingling.
