US Government is Funding to Inject Millions with Vaccines Made from Aborted Babies

Mother Wins Legal Battle to Refuse Vaccine for Her Child Made From Aborted Baby Parts

vaccine2In New York, a woman has won a legal battle to refuse a vaccine for her child because it was made from aborted baby body parts. The vaccine, MMR, is for measles, mumps and rubella and required by New York City schools for enrollment.

However, the woman was granted an exemption on religious grounds because she opposes abortion and the vaccine was used from “tissue” collected from them. The New York Post reports that the mother’s name has been withheld for privacy reasons.

As LifeNews previously reported, in July, The Center for Medical Progress released multiple videos showing Planned Parenthood’s top executives negotiating the sale of aborted babies, admitting to using altered abortion procedures to obtain salable body parts for harvesting and casually discussing“less crunchy” methods for procuring fetal “tissue.” The videos reignited debates about fetal tissue sales and sparked investigations into Planned Parenthood across the county. Shockingly, one of thenewest videos catches the abortion company harvesting the brain of an aborted baby who was still alive.

The mother said the following about her decision to refuse the vaccine: “Abortion is clearly considered a mortal sin and is [an] abhorrent act to any Christian. The vaccine manufacturers’ use of aborted fetal cells in its products and research means that I cannot associate with them or support them financially (by buying their products), for such support would make me complicit to their sin and answerable to God for this violation.”

Mary Ellen, from the New York State Department of Education Commissioner said, “the weight of the evidence supports petitioner’s contentions that her opposition to the MMR vaccine stems from sincerely held religious beliefs,” but she also argued that the mother’s case is undermined by the fact she opposes all vaccinations, regardless of it aborted babies were used to create them.

The Director of Federal Reproductive Health Policies at the National Women’s Law Center, Sharon Levin, weighed in on the case and claimed it will open a “can of worms” just like the Hobby Lobby decision.

She explained, “The woman in New York is not the first to argue that her child should not have to comply with the vaccination requirements because of religion. The danger of these exemptions for vaccinations is that one person is making a decision that impacts the health of other people’s children. Vaccination regulations are put into place to protect public health. When one person opts-out, they are making a decision for everyone else who comes into contact with their child.”

In 2014, the United States Supreme Court ruled that Hobby Lobby, a Christian-run store, doesn’t have to obey the HHS mandate that is a part of Obamacare and requires businesses to pay for abortifacents in their employee health care plans. Of course, abortion advocates said the decision violated women’s rights even though many Americans do not believe a private family-owned business should not have to pay for abortifacent drugs.

The Obama administration announced more than $1 million in grants Wednesday to Planned Parenthood, banking on the women’s health care provider to help sell Obamacare to patients and defying congressional Republicans battling to end all public funding for the organization.

Planned Parenthood chapters in Iowa, Missouri and Montana were among 100 recipients of “navigator” grants, which pay nonprofit groups to provide in-person help to people trying to sign up for coverage under Medicare or the health insurance exchanges set up under Obamacare.

Republicans blasted the funding, saying it was a particular affront at a time when Planned Parenthood is facing intense questions over its practices involving the handling and sale of fetal tissue. A series of videos released by the Center for Medical Progress appear to show Planned Parenthood officials haggling over prices and discussing abortion techniques designed to preserve the most fetal tissue possible.

“This is another example of the Obama administration’s complete lack of respect for life,” said Emily Schillinger, a spokeswoman for House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican.

Planned Parenthood, which did not return a call for comment on its grants, has said the videos are edited to be misleading and deny illegal behavior.

But the videos have emboldened Republicans and pro-life advocates, who have tried for years to cut off funding for the country’s largest provider of abortions. The House Judiciary Committee announced Wednesday that it would hold a hearing next week on the undercover videos.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the agency that oversees much of the Affordable Care Act’s implementation, announced a total of $67 million in navigator grants, going to 100 recipients in 34 states to prepare for the next season of open enrollment, which begins later this year.

That amount is up $7 million from last year’s allotment.

“We’re pleased that the funding given is an increase from last year, and the three-year time frame of the grant provides the enrollment coalition with stability as we work to make enrollment a way of life for years to come,” said Anne Filipic, president of Enroll America, a nonprofit that links the uninsured to Obamacare.

Of the money, Iowa’s Planned Parenthood chapter will receive $304,373 to connect residents of 77 counties with Obamacare, while the Montana chapter will get $337,555 and focus on rural populations, including American Indians.

In Missouri, Planned Parenthood of St. Louis will receive $388,787 aimed at reaching minorities and populations with limited English proficiency — particularly Hispanics, Bosnians and Vietnamese.

The amounts reflect the first year of a three-year grant, so the groups are poised to receive additional funds in the subsequent two years, although the amounts could change depending on how much grant money is available, according to CMS.

Still, it appears to be a smaller number than in the past. Planned Parenthood of the Heartland in Iowa and Intermountain Planned Parenthood in Montana received the Obamacare grants in 2013 and 2014, and other chapters in additional states were listed as primary recipients or sub-grantees during those years.

An agency spokesman said the Planned Parenthood groups and other nonprofits were selected through a competitive grant process based on factors outlined in a funding opportunity announcement, or “FOA.”

“Their applications were reviewed by an objective review panel and received a score based on their ability to address the requirements of the FOA related to connecting uninsured individuals to coverage options,” said Aaron Albright, the spokesman.
