Dr. Theresa Deisher, founder of the pro-life Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute, presented a study revealing the link between autism and aborted fetal DNA in vaccinations at the International Meeting for Autism Research in May.
“The temporal connection between the introduction of aborted fetal DNA and autism rises is found over decades and across continents,” Dr. Deisher told LifeSiteNews. “This temporal connection is more compelling than any mercury connection,” which, she said, had no temporal connection to rising rates of autism.
As the abstract of the study indicates, autism rates in the US and the UK began to increase around the same time that the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine switched from using animal cells to using human cells that had been derived from aborted fetuses.
The use of such cells means that the vaccine might contain residual human DNA fragments. Dr. Deisher told LSN that “short fragments of human DNA residuals in vaccines present two well-documented potential physiological dangers” and “the possibility for auto-immune reactions.” While the immune system recognizes the DNA as foreign, its similarity to an individual’s own DNA can cause the immune system to attack parts of the individual’s own body.
