Michigan bill requires informed consent for vaccines derived from aborted babies!

LANSING, Michigan, June 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-life lawmakers in Michigan have introduced legislation that would require vaccines derived from aborted babies to be clearly identified so patients can make more informed choices and potentially pursue more ethical alternatives.

Senate Bill 1055, sponsored by state Sens. Tonya Schuitmaker, Mike Kowall, Patrick Colbeck, Judy Emmons, Joe Hune, and Mike Shirkey, calls on the state Department of Health and Human Services to maintain an internet-accessible list of which vaccines were developed using stem cells derived from the tissue of aborted babies, as well as alternative vaccines when available.

Doctors would have to present this information to patients before administering vaccines as well. The list would be updated every year, and the requirement would take effect 90 days after being signed into law.

“The existence of these vaccines requires patients and parents to make important ethical decisions,” Right to Life of Michigan president Barbara Listing said. “Sadly, many people are unaware of these facts, including many doctors and nurses. Patients need accurate information to make informed decisions, and many are not getting that now.”

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration currently approves a number of vaccines produced using two cell lines, MRC-5 and WI-38, obtained from 1960s-era elective abortions. Federal law gives vaccine manufacturers legal immunity from lawsuits or charges from injured patients, instead delegating such cases to the Office of Special Masters of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. People injured by vaccines may be eligible to financial compensation from the government-run National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

Right to Life of Michigan currently maintains its own list of abortion-derived vaccines and ethical alternatives but hopes the law would make awareness and avoidance of the moral conflict more widespread.

“We should all agree that the existence of alternative vaccines proves it’s unnecessary to take human life to create effective vaccines,” she said. “Vaccine manufacturers should only use ethical sources for future vaccine production.”

Some pro-lifers, and and even the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Life, accept abortion-derived vaccines as morally permissible in the absence of alternatives. Others argue that the vaccines are not only immoral but that their origins “taint” them with an increased threat of medical complications.

Dr. David Gorski, editor of the website Science-Based Medicine, attacked the bill, claiming it was “designed to use emotive language to dissuade parents from vaccinating.” Right to Life of Michigan responded by noting that the legislation’s language was “undeniably true,” and that state health officials, not political activists, will be the ones drafting the specific, finalized language doctors must give patients.

“How does giving people information control their choices?” the group asked. “Isn’t it the opposite?”

Michigan is one of 18 states that allows exemptions to vaccine mandates based on religious or other objections. The state is also currently in the midst of the largest Hepatitis A outbreak in the United States, which has killed 27 people since 2016. State officials attribute the problem in part to a lack of supply, and there currently exists no approved, abortion-free alternative, but better tracking of the different options could help Michiganders with moral or religious concerns protect themselves and others from other diseases in the future.

About the Author

With almost twenty years spent researching and treating Cancer, I am a well respected author, teacher and health coach.

I do have a list of qualifications, but I find them cumbersome and false. The fact I am a qualified Holistic Doctor is neither here, nor there. Medical education is entirely corrupt and something that can be used against you. I go on courses in order to learn, not to buy a badge to hide behind, or a stick to beat people with.

So much nonsense has been written about me that I never read, or choose to absorb. It’s all about them, never about me. I have been attacked and targeted simply because I have helped people and not been silenced. A common misconception is that I am holistic, but the truth is I do not sit on either side of the imaginary divide between what is “mainstream” and what is “holistic.” There is greed and corruption on both sides and examples of bad practice in every field.
Personally, I am only interested in what works and improves the life of the patient.

In some cases, radiation can work and so am happy to recommend that route, if it works and saves a life in an emergency situation. But there is no ‘one size fits all’ and no cookie cutter protocol. There are many variables in healing the body. We are all individual and all capable of change, so each case must be considered individually. What works for one, may not work for another. Mass medication is wrong.
My research and work has led me all over the world and got me into some tight spots at times, but I am thankful for every twist and turn and have learned a lot from each. I am wiser as a result and see that life teaches us all. I recovered from breast cancer 20 years ago, which has saved my life over and over and made me very aware of how fleeting and precious life is. I live each day to the full and as if it were my last.
I have twenty children, many of whom are adopted, four are mine naturally. I love and adore them all and am honored to have been able to raise them, for now they are strong and independent adults. My children are the most important people in my life.

I despise materialism, I have old fashioned views and feel the modern world has lost much in the way of values and common decency. So I travel the world with my partner and 6-year-old daughter, helping people and sharing knowledge. I am still learning and feel that everyday is a school day. The reason I started this blog was so I could pass on some of this knowledge to others.

I speak the truth about everything and my honest approach shocks many, as I tend to say the things most people would not. I focus on solutions, as I am a problem solver at heart and there is only one truth. Stick to the truth and you will never go far wrong.
