'Objections to the MMR vaccine'

Print Article

I really appreciated Hillary Gavan's May 8 article on measles and vaccines. She reported the facts very accurately and cited her sources nicely.

Shifting gears, I have been extremely frustrated with the entire measles situation for some time. Here are a few of my main reasons for my growing angst:

1) I do not want my children injected with MMR; I only want the measles vaccine. Originally, the measles vaccine was created ethically and, when put into use in the 1960s, measles cases dropped by a drastic number. But shortly thereafter, the measles vaccine was combined with other vaccines - vaccines created from a murdered baby ("aborted fetus") of only twelve weeks age. Today, MMR (or MMRV) is the only version of the measles vaccine one can receive. The ethical dilemma created from the inhumane "science" behind this vaccine are the peak of my frustrations.

2) The government is slowly gaining authority over our children. May God have mercy on the governing leaders who usurp a good, honest, upstanding parent's responsibility of his own children when they force vaccinations on all children, regardless of the parents' moral convictions. We do not all want to live in California. More legislative power should return to the states and local communities.

3) This recent measles scare is not an epidemic. Between the years of 1912 and 1922 when 6,000 people died a year on average from measles is an epidemic. No one has died from measles in 2019. Let's hope it stays that way.

All in all, I hope someone with the power to bring back the original measles vaccine will do it. This would eliminate the ethical objections to using the MMR vaccine, and more people would vaccinate for measles if this was the case.
