Let's Talk About The V-Word

Updated: May 15, 2021

These days, vaginas would be easier to discuss publicly.

But, of course, that’s not the V-word to which I’m referring.

I’ve seen so many reliable resources have to substitute words in their emails, blogs, and videos because of Big Brother’s censorship of even the most innocuous health postings.

Pro vac-seen. Anti-vaxx. C-19. (You’ll have seen the latter in this blog.)

So maybe I’m being a little over-cautious, but when some of the most scientifically rigorous sources I know have been deleted from YouTube, FaceBook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and even Survey Monkey, I’m likely to err on the side of caution.

As evidence of extreme cancel culture, any vaccine criticism must now begin with, “I am not anti-vaccine.”

So for the record, I have been vaccinated in the past and am about to get my tetanus shot - which has, ironically, been postponed because of lockdown.

With that now necessary disclaimer, there are a few things we need to know and think about.

First, let’s talk about open dialogue.

Why have we become so rigid of mind that we are no longer willing to investigate this one aspect of the medical industry?

Would anyone ever say that all drugs, are always safe, for all people, at all times, and should not be investigated for safety or held to account for any side effects?

That would be absurd.

And yet, that is the V-word paradigm in which we now find ourselves.

Second, did you know that vaccine companies cannot be sued in the US?

There is, however, a US government database (VAERS) for recording adverse events from vaccines - which has been used in many successful lawsuits by people who have suffered such events.

So clearly, there are adverse effects for some people.

Third, no vaccine in history has ever been developed this quickly.

We have been told that this record speed is due to the concerted efforts of a number of coordinated constituencies.

Even so, there are no longterm human trials yet.

If you choose to get a vaccine, you are part of the human trial.

Fair enough.

There are people who are vulnerable to this virus, for whom this may be a good option.

Fourth, for decades, no one has ever been able to create a vaccine for a coronavirus.

This article from The Guardian, posted in May 2020, when we were still questioning whether an effective C-19 vaccine was even possible, explains why this type of vaccine has never been done and why there was trepidation that it could ever be done…

Fifth, some of the so-called covid vaccines now available are not vaccines - they are genetic engineering.

In this short video, an emergency room doctor at several Toronto teaching hospitals explains…

Sixth, there are growing concerns about blood clots, especially connected with the AstraZeneca vaccine, which is now being taken out of circulation in some countries.

So we need to do our research and understand what we’re getting into.

And this is the whole point.

We are being asked, no, told, to submit to an experimental injection without informed consent.

We are being pressured, coerced, and even shamed into it.

I’m sure we all know people (maybe are these people) whose colleagues, friends, or even family are pushing them into getting an experimental injection for a virus from which they have a better than 99.9% survival rate - if they even get the disease.

Seventh, there’s bodily autonomy.

The Los Angeles Unified School District filed a lawsuit against mandatory C-19 vaccines for students, citing the FDA’s own regulation that no one can be forced into an experimental drug or vaccine, the US Constitution, as well as the Nuremberg Code…

That’s a lot of info and I know it can be overwhelming.

So here’s a great summation article, with references, that lists 18 reasons to consider before getting the vaccine...

Whether or not you choose to get a covid vaccine is entirely up to you.

And that is the point.

We must maintain a culture of freedom of information, robust discussion, and bodily sovereignty.

Anything less is unhealthy for all of us.
