“My sons are both diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders…I am catholic and was looking to use the religious exemption…”


This question comes from Jill:

“My sons are both diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders. They are both vaccinated. The younger one was supposedly vaccinated w/ moral vaccines (using animals instead of humans). The younger one is in preschool and they are requiring him, under nj state law, that he get a flu shot. I am catholic and was looking to use the religious exemption. However, they are supposedly moral now. I’m just done with the whole vaccine thing and I need help fighting with the school district.”

    They are not allowed to ask you what religion you are practicing.  It doesn’t matter if you are still Catholic… Just get far away from the vaccines or use a homeopathic vaccine specialist.  There is a great one in Morristown NJ.

    the vaccines are *not* moral now. The adjuvants used in almost all
    vaccines are used to induce rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune
    diseases in lab animals. If only just to be on the safe side, it cannot
    then be moral to inject them into newborns, infants, babies and
    children, and that’s only one of many such considerations. The Church is
    not considering all the evidence. Besides, ultimately the church
    resides in every believer. Mt
    18:6 – But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in
    me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck,
    and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.It
    seems to me to be a matter of what each individual Catholic believes in
    her heart Jesus would say, were He aware of all we know.I
    strongly advise considering the above, but also consulting with an
    attorney, to analyze the wording of the law and how it might apply. Two

    If you think the ingredients in vaccines are safe, I doubt you have checked out the ingredients in them.   Common in all vaccines are poisons that no one would eat none the less inject into themselves for any health reasons?  The risk to your child is high and exempting out for religious reasons is a good reason to not let the poisons affect your child’s future and health.  It is time not to trust their rhetoric and instead do some homework, take the list of ingredients and look up these poisons and find out how touch, breathing them in affect our health and decide how injecting these into children is ‘real medicine’  if you would not eat it why would you let them harm your child’s health and future.   There is a lawyer who handles other parents who have the same issues, I cannot remember her name but I will look on my fb for it.  Stand tall and protect their future’s- health and state of mind for the rest of their lives.

    Can you get a medical exemption?  We had our doctor sign the medical exemption form and the school has never questioned it.

  • Piotrek

     I’m Catholic and we used the religious exemption with our daughter. HollisticWellnessNetwork is correct: no state or federal agency (school receiving federal and/or state funds) can ask you what your religion is. That is the first step to religious prejudice and is illegal.

    Good luck!

    Are your children sensitive to eggs or milk? If so, there’s something you can use as your out.

    I am not aware of any religion that can make the decision for any parent as to whether vaccines are safe for their children or not.  This is a personal matter.  I use the religious exemption: meaning that I feel as strongly about this as I do my religious beliefs.

    I would also say- homeschool until you can  figure out what to do.  New Jersey seems to be one of the most dangerous states to live in today-  too many toxic sites and too many vaccines. Too much mercury spewing out of the factory towers and the power plants.    I have seen three families  that live in New Jersey.  They all have children between age 4-6 and all of the boys are very small- just tiny – and you hear about how often they are sick.   Some of the vaccines, such as flu vaccines still have mercury,in large doses and some , in so-called trace amounts and , in my opinion, equally bad is the aluminum, which is present in so many vaccines.  Aluminium is only recently coming into focus as one more toxic ingredient in vaccines and we will learn much more about it in the next 5 years , I am very sure.  Just wait   . TThe word morality is a very strange  word to use, in our bizarre modern world which is cutting down the children left and right, with the link to vaccines becomming more and more apparent .  In case you think this is an exaggeration,  please study vaccines for 10 years as I have, talk to the older teachers in the primary schools, who remember the good old days when children were so normal in health that it must ha ve been very boring to be a school nurse.

    BTW, you said that both your sons have Autism, I suggest you research and consult a good homoeopath as Autism can be reversible.

    The vaccine issue can easily be based on a religious exemption, simply because several of the vaccines are made with human diploid tissue, (aborted fetal cells). 

    There is as well a single study that has been done, showing clearly that not all of the contamination from the manufacturing process is actually complete, by the known and typical step processes of so called vaccine purification, before marketing. 

    MRC-5 (Lung, diploid, human)


    Derived from normal lung tissue of a 14-week-old male fetus
    by J. P. Jacobs in September 1966 (Nature 227: 168-170, 1970), the MRC-5 cell
    line was established in a growth medium consisting of Earle’s Basal Medium in
    Earle’s balanced salt solution supplemented with 10% calf serum. Following
    initial cultivation, subcultures were prepared twice weekly at a 1:2 ratio. When
    the cells reached approximately the 7th population doubling, the majority of
    the cultures were harvested to prepare a frozen cell stock. Subsequent
    observations revealed that the MRC-5 cells are capable of attaining 42-46
    population doublings before onset of the decline in proliferation usually
    experienced with human fibroblast lines. The MRC-5 cell strain (like the WI-38
    cell line) is susceptible to a wide range of human viruses.


    Culture Medium

    Minimum essential medium (Eagle), with 10% heat-inactivated
    fetal bovine serum.


    Growth Characteristics

    Cells seeded at a concentration of 4×104 cells/cm2 in the
    above culture medium will be 100% confluent in 7 days.


    Plating Efficiency

    Less than 1%.






    Chromosome Frequency Distribution is 46 Cells: 2n = 46.



    Confirmed as human by cytotoxic-antibody dye exclusion test.


    Common Utilization

    Supports the growth of a broad range of viruses, including
    Adenoviruses; Coxsackie A; Cytomegalovirus; Echovirus; Herpes simplex Virus;
    Poliovirus; Rhinovirus; Respiratory Syncytial Virus; and Varicella Zoster
    Virus. Also used for in vitro cytotoxicity testing.


    http://www.viromed.com/services/product/mrc5.htmThe MMR vaccine is made by use of aborted fetal
    tissue; more specifically, MRC-5 and WI-38.This study takes a realistic look at the contaminant material left in vaccines, after they are made from human diploid tissue, (aborted fetal cell tissue); and outlines the potential harm that can do. Several of the childhood vaccines are made by this method. The study is said to be only a hypothesis, but none the less comes up with some very significant findings not only in relation to autism, but as well in what would be clear resulting in potential adverse effects on health as well.The said study:Computational Detection of Homologous Recombination Hotspots in X-Chromosome Autism-Associated Geneshttp://www.cogforlife.org/SCPIIMFARHR.pdfVaccine Ingredients:http://www.novaccine.com/specific-vaccines/Here is a little more information, and a list of vaccines that have been made with human diploid cells, (shocking).Vaccines, Abortion, & Fetal Tissuehttp://media.rtl.org/pdf/VaccinesPrint.pdf
    of Christians need to learn about the vaccine dangers and how vaccines are
    contaminating their DNA.

    Just chiming in with my 2 sense. My husband and I have 7 biological children between us. Our twins are ours together. Our twins were born at 36 weeks 5 days which is full term for a twin pregnancy. They were born healthy and not autistic. At 8 days of age, they were diagnosed with a milk allergy and put on soy. Vomiting began which then they were diagnosed with reflux. No doctor thought to diagnosis them with a soy allergy. We went through many formulas. They were sick with numerous ear infections and upper respiratory infections. At 6 months, while sick, the ped gave them the cocktail of shots that they currently push on children including the flu vax. Just shy of 7 months, they received their next flu vax. They started going down hill fast. No more eye contact. Stevie lost the 3 words he had and Sam lost the 2 words that he once had. We were pushed into giving them those vaccines as we were told they would die if they caught the flu. NOT TRUE! Just shy of their 1 year birthday, a friend of the family called. She was watching “Imus In the Morning.” Don Imus interviewed David Kirby and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Marion asked me if I had heard of Thimerosal? Of course not, I replied. She suggested that the twins had autism. Marion was a retired English Professor from Towson State University. I began researching vaccines and was horrified at the ingredients. We immediately stopped vaccinating. Our twins have had multiple medical issues including Regressive Encephalopathy w/features of autism, Mitochondrial Myopathy and Eosinophilic Esophagitis. Do I think vaccines played a roll in all of this? DAMN RIGHT I DO! I urge any parent even entertaining the idea of vaccinating to educate before you vaccinate. Our twins may not be sickly but have multiple medical issues and will need a lifetime of care. I do not wish this on anyone. There are plenty of websites full of information regarding vaccine injuries. I certainly hope someone learns from our mistake. We were very naive about the dangers of “herd immunity.” God Bless anyone reading this.

    Stand your ground, Jill! Try to find solution that will ease your burden. I recommend maxamlabs.com products. Maxam’s new product, PHP, is intended to help replenish and restore proper immune and gut bacterial functionality beyond the standard probiotic formula.  It helps to detoxify your body from all the junks inside.

    Have you ever heard of glutathione? It is good for the brain, this natural drug, help people with Parkinson’s disease.

    Dairy cows fed a grain (corn) diet are eating GMO corn which is: 1: Very TOXIC= POISONOUS to any animal or human who eats GMO “food”.
    2: Corn is NOT, I repeat, NOT the natural food that cattle eat. 
    So if you feed your family traditionally raised and butchered beef, you are POISONING
    you family with this TOXIC “meat”. You will of course experience all sorts of health problems, especially your children. The BEST thing you can do for your family is to STAY AWAY FROM GMO “FOOD”, AND EAT ORGANIC. It’s a little more expensive but the health risks from GMO “food” is MUCH, MUCH, MUCH WORSE. 
    Do the research, PLEASE. AS for vaccines, my opinion of them is that they are engineered these days to cause extreme harm and even DEATH. Vaccines are a major part of billionaire BILL GATES plan to kill off millions of human beings. Look up his vaccine speech on YouTube. You’ll see the UGLY truth behind vaccines!

    You absolutely should not let your child get the flu vaccine. I have a friend in Salt Lake City whose daughter regressed into autism after the H1N1 vax three years ago. I’m Catholic too, but I took a religious exemption to shots for my autistic, vaccine-damaged daughter. You don’t have to belong to a specific religion to claim it. I sincerely believe that God is against permanently damaging people with vaccines. Don’t you?

    Has anyone read the warning second coming website? Jesus says that a vaccination will be introduce to kill many. Check the message on November 9th 2012.
