Add Intercessors for America to the New York Jewish communities and the expanding list of religious groups standing up on vaccine issues.
Intercessors for America is a group founded in 1973 to pray. About everything. They started with the Vietnam War, Watergate, and Roe v. Wade, and they are still going.
Earlier this year IFA learned that some vaccines contain the remains of aborted fetal cell lines, and their leadership, who have been earnestly praying for the lives of unborn children for since before most of us were one, found out that they had been participating in the very practice that they had been entreating God to end.
They were devastated.
One of their staff remarked to the vaccine injury mother who had brought her the information that she didn't understand how she could not know that she was participating in a practice that she had been fighting against for decades, and that a pall had fallen over their office as they tried to process the harsh reality they were confronting.
IFA has processed and responded to the conviction that their consciences pressed upon them in one of the best examples of humility and repentance that I have seen. They have not become lost in "Greater Good" excuses rooted in hypocrisy that we see happen so often. They have stayed true to their core beliefs and are telling the greater church and pro-life community about the ugly truth, issuing multiple calls for prayer and action on vaccine choice rights.
They started by issuing a report on the matter which included introductory discussions of the WI-38 and MRC-5 cell lines and how it relates to prayer and members of the Christian church. And they do not mince words.
They then sounded the alarm about the March 5th Senate Hearings and noted that 13 of the Senators on the Committee that attacked our rights are proponents of the Born Alive Act, and must be informed of the conflict. They even reported on the treatment of our families:
*** IFA Just received this from those at the hearing: “They are refusing to let any family that does not want to vaccinate to come into the hearing. They are sitting in the hallway. Please help pray for peace for our families. We are so hurt and our children are so sick…and I know God is moving in this but it breaks my heart into a million pieces.” ***
IFA put out a prayer request surrounding the Rochester ruling that initially disallowed children to return to school on March 16th.
And this week they issued another prayer to call in action surrounding the attacks on religious freedom in vaccination in Brooklyn, Colorado and Maine. They even reference Plotkin's videotaped testimony admitting to facilitating multiple abortions for just one of his research papers.
We are seeing religious communities become more vocal about their 1st Amendment rights in vaccination. It is going to take ALL religious communities becoming vocal about their 1st Amendment rights in vaccination to push back the predatory, rapacious and liability-free vaccine industry.
If you pray, please visit IFA, thank them for their service on this issue, and pray with them. If you don't, visit IFA anyway, and thank them for being a voice for our rights.
