Abortion and Vaccines, #8 - Selling our bodies for profit

I really have no intention of making this a blog about nothing but abortion and vaccines, regardless of the trend with recent posts! As the masthead says, the primary purpose is to promote discussion about freedom in decision-making around vaccination. 

But there is yet another similarity between abortion and vaccines: both procedures center around the selling of bodies and lives - as well as their destruction, though of the two abortion is far more effective and efficient. 

In the summer of 2015 David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress released a series of videos documenting Planned Parenthood's practice of selling body parts from aborted children as an adjunctive profit center. 

At least they (theoretically) obtained the consent of the mother's of these children - I doubt they offered them a discount, though!  

In much the same way, our bodies (both our children, and increasingly, adults) are likewise for sale - to the makers of vaccines, as well as to those who advocate for vaccination. The presence of conflicts of interest among those who legislate for vaccine mandates (CA State Senator Dr. Richard Pan, for example) is not hard to find. Click here for an article that discusses his "support" from pharmaceutical companies as well as several other examples of conflict of interest. 

Merck, the maker of Gardasil, was initially very heavily involved in fomenting states to mandate use of Gardasil - a strategy that may have backfired. To be sure, they "lobbied" the end-users with TV commercials as well. But that is just icing on the cake, since those targeted for vaccination increasingly do not have any choice in the matter. 

Physicians make money from vaccinations - both from visits to provide them as well as from bonuses they may be eligible for if a high percentage of their patients are vaccinated. 
Money talks, bonuses work

Flu vaccines are mandated for healthcare workers in hospitals. The hospitals can be docked Medicare payments for failing to report the percentage of staff who have been vaccinated against influenza. 

Whether dead or alive, we are being sold. Either our bodies are the product being pedaled to research companies (fetal tissue) or we are being offered to vaccine makers as a recipient of their product regardless of whether we want it or not - and money is greasing the pockets of others for this priviledge of making a profit off of us. 

Given legitimate questions surrounding vaccine safety and efficacy (detailed on this and many other blogs) - it is reasonable to expect a high degree of freedom regarding the use of vaccination. Even if they were 100% effective and 100% safe there should be a high degree of freedom as human beings are designed to live in freedom, and competent adults are not wards of the state.
