Of the many things in my life I’ve planned and intentionally worked toward, writing about vaccines and abortion is certainly not one of them. This unexpected journey began with a claim I ran across:
An ingredient in vaccines – a human ingredient – comes from aborted babies.
That sounds bizarre and beyond farfetched, doesn’t it? If it were true, I reasoned, then the pro-life community would be up in arms and surely I would have been aware.
Even though it seemed almost impossible, it bothered me enough that I felt compelled to take a deeper look. I began with the most respected source I knew at the time – the CDC. From there I went to primary sources, and before I knew it I was hunting down old peer-reviewed articles, interviews with scientists, and official government documents. One source led to another until highlighted papers took over my floor.
The shocking history unfolding after each source made me sick to my stomach and sometimes left me curled up in a puddle of tears.
A decade of research ultimately culminated in the white paper that started this website in 2019.
Then, in 2020, the world intently followed COVID-19 vaccine development and awareness of the link between abortion and vaccines grew. Scientists working feverishly to develop COVID vaccines were using abortion-derived fetal cell lines to create many of the COVID vaccines. This new awareness opened up fresh opportunities to speak to the issue so burdensome to my heart.
I want this to be a place where truth – even very hard truth – is shared.
A little more about me
Always being drawn to people, I studied sociology and counseling, attended seminary, and worked in the legal field. Looking back, it was after graduate school that I honed my skills to think more critically. The tools I gained along the way to research, question, and analyze were suddenly worth all the schooling.
Being constantly curious, an observer of people, and a follower of Jesus reminds me I have a lot to learn. I hope I’m always learning and growing, loving people, and seeking Jesus.
