Allergic Reactions Being Investigated
On the UK’s first day of the vaccine. Two people had serious reactions, both have a history of serious reactions.
How are mRNA Vaccines made
The first of the vaccines use mRNA Messenger Ribonucleic Acid. The starting point is a human cell needs to grow the Covid-19. There are various ways of getting those cells, an Aborted Fetus, a donated Placenta, cancer cells, Adult Stem Cells, and many others. These cells are cloned or made to twin by the labs. With the mRNA process, once the virus gets to the point of replicating itself, the original cell is destroyed leaving only the virus. The mRNA instruction that makes the spike is broken off and incased in something harmless. Once it is inside you, it continues the process of making a spike, but without a virus that can replicate, it happens once only.
With regard to an Aborted Fetal Line, you will be told that you are not being injected with aborted babies. What ever cell is used, what is left of that cell is destroyed and only the virus is left. However, the virus uses the material from the original cell to replicate itself. Put another way, if the virus was a Legos or a Widget, it makes new Legos or Widgets out of the material it infects.
When an Aborted Fetus is used by science, it does not die once. It is cloned or twined trillions of times. These babies die over and over again in numbers that are unimaginable.
Various mRNA human trials have been going on since 2013. These vaccine trials are 3 months old, but mRNA technology is not new.
Update on Side Effects
Like other vaccines, this works by convincing your body that it has a virus and it needs to mount an immune response to it.
You might be like me, I actually get sick when I get the flu shot. When we get the vaccine and it convinces our bodies that it is sick, we might feel sick. Then it goes away because it’s a fake or dead virus that does not reproduce it self.
From the trials, 15% have had between mild and short term flu like symptoms, for 85% nothing at all. Some people have reacted to the needle at the injection site, just like any vaccine.
The good news for long haulers like me, we might feel sick for hours or maybe days. For me, that beats a ventilator and making sure my will is in order.
That’s unless my only choice is a vaccine that has any involvement with the HEK-292 Aborted Fetus Line, I will gladly take my chances with Covid-19.
Forbes has an article on AD5 Researchers Warn Some Covid-19 Vaccines Could Increase Risk Of HIV Infection. We may all have a love one that this concerns. The AD5 is used in two of the Covid-19 vaccines in development. These two Vaxart VXA-CoV2-1 and CanSino Biogenics also used Aborted Fetuses in the development of their vaccines, AD5 was previously used in an AIDS vaccine, I think this is more about the behavior of those who received the AD5 treatment than the treatment itself. I don’t think they used dirty needles for that treatment, and no Pharmacy is going to use a dirty needle for a Covid-19 Vaccine. For those engaged in risky behavior, this is one more reason to change.
There are lots of Anti-Vax websites and Social Media Channels that have all kinds of crazy side effects. While I don’t think they are credible, I don’t recommend being first in line if you are not at a high risk of dying from Covid-19.
For Pro-Life Catholics, not using a vaccine derived from Aborted Babies should be a priority. There seems to be proof that Moderna used the HEK-293 Aborted Fetal Line. Pfizer did not, however, while it was not created with that line and it is not part of the product, The Pfizer Vaccine was tested on the HEK-293 Fetal Line. Basically, the HEK-293 line was used as the guinea pig.
The line in the sand seems a bit blurry to me. If you feel that you can’t wait, Pfizer is somewhere between ethical and the lesser of two evils.
The first of these two vaccines to hit the United States uses mRNA Messenger Ribonucleic Acid. Basically, it tells your cells to make a non-virus spike protein that your body then creates anti-bodies for.
This mRNA is extremely fragile so it needs to be encased in a lipid nanoparticle-based delivery system and frozen to -70 until it gets to you. That just a very tiny bit of fluid. Nanoparticles are not something from a Star Trek movie. The lipid nanoparticle-based delivery system is how the mRNA is delivered to your cells. It will be a big needle, and it will most likely be injected in your shoulder muscles. I assume you will be waiting in a room while it warms up.
The mRNA will make a small change to the DNA of the cells it encounters in your body. You won’t be chimera, part human, part something else. This is more like writing a note on a page of a book, a very large book. If you wrote a note or comment in War and Piece, it is still the same book. There are other things that changes your DNA, like being pregnant, catching a virus, transfusions, etc. To the extent that you are still you now, you will still be you if you get the vaccine.
I assume that website will update the information as the research changes. If you can not reach their website this is a Snapshot of the Ethical Comparisons of Covid-19 Vaccines.
With regard to the vaccines that have any involvement with the aborted fetus line HEK-293 I think Deuteronomy Chapter 30 applies on the side effects. This is the Pro-Life verses Abortion chapter that talks about being given a choice between life or death, blessing or a curse.
The Choice Before Israel.
15 See, I have today set before you life and good, death and evil. 16 If you obey the commandments of the LORD, your God, which I am giving you today, loving the LORD, your God, and walking in his ways, and keeping his commandments, statutes and ordinances, you will live and grow numerous, and the LORD, your God, will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. 17 If, however, your heart turns away and you do not obey, but are led astray and bow down to other gods and serve them, 18 I tell you today that you will certainly perish; you will not have a long life on the land which you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess. 19 I call heaven and earth today to witness against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, 20 by loving the LORD, your God, obeying his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land which the LORD swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them.
Some Thoughts about the Future
It may come down to a choice between taking our chances with Covid-19 itself and a curse for ourselves, our descendants and our country. Perhaps the whole world. If we don’t have an ethical choice.
Whatever choice we make now for the Covid-19 vaccines, effects the choices we may be allowed to make for a Covid-21, Covid-23, or a whatever comes next vaccine. Today this is a choice for the most vulnerable, then it is a choice for everyone, then it’s every season, and finally, it’s no longer a choice we are allowed to make.
If some people are right, I pray they are wrong, we may need a vaccine passport to travel, work, or enter a grocery store. If children can’t go to school without their shots, is it so far fetched to think that a Government that can tell you that you can’t go to Church can also say you must be injected with something developed using HEK-293 aborted fetus cells.
Remember, Two weeks to flatten the curve, then we are back to normal. I don’t think anyone wants to live 2020 over again. If they don’t make a vaccine a requirement for Covid-19, they probably will for the next one.
In the future, they may say, if your government does not require that everyone gets the Covid-Twenty-Next vaccine then we will all live 2020 all over again, so burn the City and burn the Church if until they require it. Perhaps they beat anyone that protests against an unethical vaccine while a crowd chants we won’t go back to 2020.
