Human Life International Denounces Unconstitutional Vaccine Mandate

CHARLESTON, W.V. -- At a rally being held today at

the state capitol in Charleston, Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer, president of Human

Life International, is challenging West Virginia health officials to recant

testimony regarding Senate Bill 439 that the group considers to be misleading.

The pending legislation, which will be voted on by the Senate on

Wednesday, would effectively deny parents the right to any and all vaccine

exemptions. The bill also adds the chickenpox and hepatitis B inoculations to

an already-extensive list of mandatory shots.

Comments Euteneuer, "Along with Mississippi, West Virginia is the

only state to forbid religious vaccine exemptions. This bill goes even

further by prohibiting physicians from granting medical exemptions according

to what they believe is best for each patient. Senate Bill 439 would also make

West Virginia the only state to force homeschoolers to be immunized."

In testimony related to SB439, state health officials denied that aborted

fetal tissue is used to culture the chickenpox vaccine. HLI vaccine expert

Jameson Taylor counters this assertion: "The chickenpox vaccine's own product

insert clearly states each dose contains 'residual components, including DNA

and protein,' of cells acquired from aborted babies -- what the pharmaceutical

industry refers to as 'human diploid' cells. Why are state health officials

trying to hide this fact? Because they know most parents don't want their

children injected with cells from aborted babies."

Adds Taylor, "No medical or scientific necessity requires this vaccine be

cultured on fetal tissue. Furthermore, the current chickenpox vaccine has an

average failure rate of 66 percent."

Concludes Euteneuer, "It is deplorable that the West Virginia

department of health is attempting to mandate these vaccines without an

exemption. That, on top of this, state officials are misleading the public

about how these vaccines are manufactured is inexcusable. State officials

have a moral and legal responsibility to uphold parents' constitutional right

to make an informed decision about the medical care their children receive.

They're taking the fruit of the poison tree and making us eat it."
