As a pro lifer who is raising a grandchild vaccines have been a very aggravating experience for me. Many do not realize that many vaccines are now made from the cell lines of aborted children. Unlike many people who can refuse to get vaccines for their children based on conscious clauses I do not have that luxury. The state of Florida requires those who get government assistance such as relative as caretaker (which I receive) must be vaccinated. The monovalent vaccines are the only option for those who are pro life and must get vaccines. Without these I will have no choice but to have my grandson vaccinated with a vaccine that goes against my conscious. Please act today and follow the link below for more information and how to contact Merck.

Merck Stops Producing Vaccines Without Cells From Babies Killed in Abortions Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A leading pro-life group is worried about a new decision from the pharmaceutical giant Merck. The company has decided to stop producing some vaccines that are not made based on fetal cells from abortions. Merck & Co. Inc has stopped the production and sale of its monovalent vaccines for measles, mumps and rubella. Instead, the company will focus on combination vaccine, MMRII, which accounts for 98 percent of the company's sales of the vaccines targeting those diseases. "Merck's separate dose for rubella, Meruvax, uses aborted fetal cell lines and taints the entire MMR II vaccine," Debi Vinnedge of the pro-life group Children of God for Life tells LifeNews.com. "The separate doses of Attenuvax (measles) and Mumpsvax (mumps) use chick embryo. Without these separate doses for measles and mumps, there will be no moral alternative for parents." Merck spokeswoman Amy Rose said the decision to eliminate the monovalent vaccines was made for both financial and health reasons.
