We Would Like to Apologize

Tears roll down my face as I read yet another story on Facebook about a once healthy child clinging to life because of a vaccine injury. My heart is broken! Yet, after I solemnly pray for that dear child, I scroll down to another post and see this:

My friend’s post read: “Not vaccinating your kids leave them vulnerable. Are you prepared to say ‘I’m sorry’ when they get a vaccine preventable disease?”

My heart sank. Don’t they know: WE DID vaccinate our children?! And, they have paid a HORRIBLE price as a result of our choice to do so.

So, yes, I HAVE said, “I’m sorry.” A thousand times, I have apologized to my son for ruining his health at age sixteen because I trusted the medical community about the “complete safety” of vaccines. I know many other parents with similar stories. Some have even buried their children.

In July of  2011, my healthy 16 year old received the Varicella, MCV4, and the TDaP vaccines. Two days later he began showing  the troubling & life-threatening symptoms of Guillian-Barre Syndrome. He was diagnosed with heavy metal toxicity & adrenal failure among other things.

The comments on the Facebook post I mentioned above were ruthless, cold, and profoundly arrogant, all while dismissing the comments of grieving parents whose children’s lives were devastated by vaccine injury.

Who could be so heartless with disregard and void of basic human compassion? As a pastor’s wife, I have a few things to say: As a society, we have failed. More importantly, those of us who are Christians have failed.

First, we have failed at acknowledging some of the ethical concerns behind vaccines. There are many, many issues I could explore here, but I will bring up just one for now: no less than 80 abortions were performed for the Rubella vaccine alone (see pp. 447-448 of linked source). Where are our morals?! Have we, as believers, been so blinded by “science” that our moral compass has been compromised?

Secondly, we have failed as human beings. Where is our basic compassion? These families did their due diligence of adhering to the most bloated childhood vaccination schedule among the world’s developed countries, yet these children are simply considered collateral damage? Where are all the congratulatory “atta boys”?

I mean, we “took one for the team,” right? Where are our “thank you” or “I’m sorry” notes?

There are none. Instead, we are met with ridicule, skepticism, and yes, even death threats solely because we choose to no longer vaccinate.

Where is the justice in this? Where is the compassion? Is this the way we treat families who have been through grueling circumstances? Is this how we honor the individuals who have literally given their lives up in the name of “herd immunity?”

Since we’re on the topic of apologies, Texans For Vaccine Choice would personally like to apologize:

We’re sorry your children have been injured.
We’re sorry you had to bury your child.
We’re sorry you are now shamed & abused when you decide to forgo all vaccines because you deem them unsafe.
We’re sorry your families are now falling apart.
We’re sorry you now face financial devastation because of vaccine injury.
We’re sorry for all the single parents now raising your disabled child/children on your own because your marriage could not withstand the emotional toll vaccine injury takes.
We’re sorry you are belittled and demoralized because you speak out about the dangers of vaccines that you have witnessed firsthand.
We’re sorry for the uncertainty of what tomorrow, next year, next decade hold for your child and the lack of resources to care for them now and in the future.

Society may have failed you, but we here at TFVC give you this promise:
We will work harder than anyone. We will go anywhere and do whatever it takes to protect and advance informed consent, medical privacy, and vaccine choice. Our children are worth it!!

To my fellow pastors, pastor’s wives, and fellow Believers: let’s be the leaders God has called us to be, seeking truth and compassion above all. (John 8:32, 1 Cor. 13:13)

In Truth,

Star Stevens

  1. Beautiful as always Star! God is using your grief and heartache to help others. Thank you for letting Him use your voice to help others make educated decisions. Many people are praying for you and the many other families who have been affected by vaccine injury.

      Please tell me, Ethan, that you are being sarcastic. We may lay your own rights to life down, “for the greater good”, but we may not lay down the rights of others. If you are a believer, please consider God has a plan for each of us. We are to expand the kingdom , live, not die and declare the Good news. He made us in His image with a beautifully created body system made to deal with disease. It does not require injecting toxins. Good nutrition, sanitation and lives filled with the Peace of Christ (His ways) equip us to deal with the viruses and bacteria encountered.

  2. Greater Good? Please. There needs to be a study comparing vaccine injured and disease injured. I had the real measels, mumps, chicken pox, etc. No problem but then was mandated to get the MMR and HepB for rubella and HepB titters. Chronically ill ever since and ruined my life. Honestly I wonder how many parents don’t even realize their child is injured by a vaccine because so many doctors refute it. They did with me and like really doc? Whether it was directly or indirectly it was 100% why because I was an adult not a child who can’t defend themselves. It’s unbelievable how corrupt the system is. They know 100% without any doubt vaccines are good but unfortunately don’t know what causes most diseases out there. Im terrified my granddaughter will be mandated to get that gardisal shot as it was added to the MA school immunizations. OMG she is 10 and that isn’t something that the person next to her could ever get. Not worth the risk!!

      Oh Sharon please don’t let her get that my daughters obgyn said as long as they have their yearly paps there’s no need for it I’ve met so many children permanently damaged by that vaccination

  3. Do you have any evidence at all that the unfortunate illnesses you describe were caused by vaccines? Anecdotal evidence us useless, statistical evidence rules.

    The sad thing is that there are so many things that really are harming people and causing miscarriage sin large numbers, whose ill effects are well understood from decades of scientific study: exposure to lead, mercury and other heavy metals, as well as other chemicals in the effluents produced by the oil, chemical, and mining industries. However, you choose to ignore the real killers and attack the one thing that is really saving us.

    I’m 60 years old with Scleroderma, Lupus and Crest Syndrome. My mom took me to get my shots since I can remember. Dr’s say that they still don’t know where these illnesses came from. So basically I’m a dead person walking. There’s no clue and no cure for this yet. So who’s to say they didn’t come from the vaccines I received as a child. So who’s going to say I’m sorry you’re going to die soon.
