little known fact:aborted fetal tissue in your childs vaccines

I sometimes questioned to why I have a problem with vaccines. One of the main reasons is the use of human diploid cells in some of them. Most parents that hear that are shocked, some are horrified since they don't believe in abortions. Before you label me as a whacko, here is a link from the CDC (centers for disease control) about it: http://www.cdc.gov/nip/vacsafe/concerns/gen/humancell.htm CDC is aware that some, but not all, vaccines are made from human cell-line cultures, and some of these cell lines originated from aborted fetal tissue, obtained from legal abortions in the 1960's. No new fetal tissue is needed to produce cell lines to make these vaccines, now or in the future. Fetal tissue is not used to produce vaccines; cell lines generated from a single fetal tissue source are used--vaccine manufacturers obtain human cell lines from FDA-certified cell banks. http://www.eadshome.com/vaccines.htm These are the vaccines that have human diploid/aborted fetal cells in them MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), Varicella (chickenpox), The following, less commonly used vaccines also are made using aborted babies: Biavax [Rubella and Mumps]--Merck and Co. ImoVax [Rabies] -- Connaught Laboratories Havrix [Hepatitis A]--SmithKline Beecham Meruvax II [Rubella]--Merck and Co. M-R Vax [Measles and Rubella] -- Merck and Co.

Were you guys still military when you started deelaying his shots? I'm asking because we tried to delay some of our son's shots, but pretty much if we take him to his well baby appointments on base, he ends up with at least the MMR shot. So it's like we have to choose whether to take him to the doctor and get the shots, or whether he has to skip the well baby appointments so he doesn't have the shots. My son hasn't had any adverse reactions to any of the shots, but I would really not like to expose him to them unnecessarily.

We were still in when we refused the shots. The doctor basically said that well baby visits are for the shots once they get past a year old anyways. They can't make you get the shots, it's not mandatory. It's not even mandatory for school too, www.vaccinetruth.com lists exemptions by state ;)

Well, we don't want to skip the 15 month well baby visit because my son just started to walk on his own, so we want to make sure that everything is fine with that, since he still does it on his tiptoes more often than not. I will print out some stuff to take with us, though. He still hasn't had his 1 year shots yet. I know they will be trying to get to him for those this time!

The cells are to incubate the vaccines with. Just like when you get infected the virus incubates inside your cells for a period of time before you show symptoms. They incubate the viruses in the cells so that you will "catch" the virus right away rather than waiting. The toxic chemicals are generally preservatives.

that's interesting, I really never knew why they did that.
