I’ve been quiet here, yet again. Things have been strange lately. I honestly feel like I’ve been transported to a strange opposite world, where my understanding of life totally conflicts with others. At least, that’s what the media tells me.
My husband is facing a vaccine mandate at his job. Is he in healthcare, you might ask? Why no, he works at an electric co-op in conservative North Georgia. There are medical systems who still do not mandate vaccines in our area, and yet my husband’s workplace has. What in the world?
He has until Friday to “choose” to take the vaccine and receive a $500 bonus for doing so. After that, the vaccine will be mandated, and no bonus for you.
Oh, how we’ve struggled with this. We are freedom loving people, and do not take injecting a foreign substance into our arm which then changes things at a cellular level in our bodies lightly. At the same time, we do love our neighbor. We social distance and mask up. We stay at home. But mandating a vaccine which is now threatening my family’s livelihood is going too far.
And so, I thought I’d like to share why we are hesitant to become vaccinated. Surely we aren’t alone in this.
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were tested using cloned cells from aborted fetal cell lines, and the J & J vaccine was both created and tested using these aborted fetal cell lines. You can read more about this here.
Pfizer has a very tainted history in regards to lying and manipulation. The company has paid out massive cash settlements in the past. You can read more about this here.
Just because a drug is FDA approved, it doesn’t mean that it won’t later be pulled for serious side effects and deaths. You can read about the times this has happened here.
Fully vaccinated individuals are now known to spread the virus and have been told to wear masks in areas of high transmission. The vaccinated folks are unknowingly spreading the virus to others. This is not okay. In our area, approximately 30% of people are vaccinated, and 10% of those in area hospitals are vaccinated. This doesn’t seem like the protection I’d be looking for. You can read more about this here.
Serious side effects and deaths have been reported due to this vaccine. When there is a risk, there should be a choice. Let me repeat. When there is a risk, there should be a choice.
It would be nice if we lived in a world where the importance of a healthy lifestyle was discussed more regarding this virus. The standard American diet and our sedentary lifestyle is killing us, and instead of addressing this serious problem, we are instructed to get a jab. A study has found that vegans are 73% less likely to get severe Covid. I’d much rather eat this way and allow my God-given immune system protect me. You can read more about this here.
I would appreciate prayers for my family, and for others who may find themselves in this same situation. I’m grateful to trust that God is our ultimate provider. He will hold us fast!
