Will Vegans Reject Covid Vaccine that Drains Horseshoe Crabs of Their Blood?

Note: Can you be a Vegan, a true Vegan who does not consume animal products, and take a COVID vaccine that calls for the ex-sanguination of horseshoe crabs? What's the difference between the cruel existence of veal, and hooking horsehoe crabs to a machine that drains their 30% of their blood, if when they are returned "home," many die?  Is taking any product that knowingly harms animals hypocritical?  If you have never seen horseshoe crabs in the wild, you should. We used to see them often on Cape Cod.  They are mesmerizing, ancient creatures.

Each year, the medical industry catches around 600,000 horseshoe crabs. The crabs are drained of 30% of their blood and up to 30% of the crabs don't live through the process. The survivors are returned to the water, but no one really knows how well or if they recover. Source: Business Insider Why Horseshoe Crab Blood is So Expensive

Horseshoe crab blood is key to making a COVID-19 vaccine—but the ecosystem may suffer. Conservationists worry the animals, which are vital food sources for many species along the U.S. East Coast, will decline in number.

Each spring, guided by the full moon, hundreds of thousands of horseshoe crabs clamber onto beaches across the U.S. mid-Atlantic to lay their eggs. For hungry birds, it’s a cornucopia. For drug companies, it’s a crucial resource for making human medicines safe.

That’s because these animals’ milky-blue blood provides the only known natural source of limulus amebocyte lysate, a substance that detects a contaminant called endotoxin. If even tiny amounts of endotoxin—a type of bacterial toxin—make their way into vaccines, injectable drugs, or other sterile pharmaceuticals such as artificial knees and hips, the results can be deadly.

“All pharmaceutical companies around the world rely on these crabs. When you think about it, your mind is boggled by the reliance that we have on this primitive creature,” says Barbara Brummer, state director for The Nature Conservancy in New Jersey.

Every year, pharmaceutical companies round up half a million Atlantic horseshoe crabs, bleed them, and return them to the ocean— after which many will die. This practice, combined with overharvesting of the crabs for fishing bait, has caused a decline in the species in the region in the past few decades... Read more at National Geographic HERE.

COVID-19 vaccine mandate coming:

https://www.wavy.com/news/politics/virginia-commissioner-of-health-says-hell-mandate-a-covid-19-vaccine-bill-could-allow-some-to-opt-out/

"Virginia Commissioner of Health Dr. Norman Oliver told 8News on Friday that he plans to mandate coronavirus vaccinations for Virginians once one is made available to the public."

"Under current state law, only people with a medical exemption could refuse the mandate."

"The Virginia General Assembly is considering a bill during the ongoing special session that would allow people with a religious exemption to opt out of the requirement. The bill needs to clear a house committee before the full chamber could vote on it. There is no scheduled date for when the bill will be debated."

The article also states that Dr. Oliver "strongly opposes the bill". I'm not surprised; I don't remember the exact quote, but Dr. Oliver is also the person who previously stated that a 2 year lockdown might be necessary. His department later had to walk that back. I doubt they will walk this back.

Susan Welch: Agreed. I attended and testified at four of the five SB277 hearings (which took away all exemptions except medical, which they removed last year with SB276) in 2015. At the rallies, in the elevators, and standing in line for hours waiting to testify each time, I met many people, people from every possible political persuasion, occupation, and world view. Neither this movement nor AoA have anything to do with partisan politics. As for me, I was a liberal Democrat for forty-five years, until Gov. Brown signed SB277. My views have always tended to be libertarian, but I don't like any of the political parties. In California the Democrats have staked out such extreme positions that I have usually voted Republican since then. But as Kim mentioned recently neither party is our friend. One glimmer of hope is that Trump has been openly skeptical of vaccines, and he has pushed Fauci off to the sidelines.

but now most anti vaccine extremist are far right Christian fundamentalist.

Sorry, Bill. I have to disagree with you. Most 'anti' vaxxers are merely family members of children disabled by or dead from the liability free shots.

I obviously cannot speak for others on this page, but I voted Liberal/Liberal Democrat (UK) for most of my life. Having found out more about the political system since looking into vaccine injury, I would be hard put to vote for any of the major parties in future. I do not trust any career politician - left or right. As far as religion is concerned, I am of the Buddhist persuasion so, again, I do not fit into your theory.

I do not see how you can label people who have vaccine injured family members as you have in your comment.

Radical vegans are also a danger to health just like extreme anti vaccine people and this horse shoe crab controversy is a god reason why. I agree most food needs to be vegan but a human is an omnivore and sometime extracts from an animal are important in medicine. As for kosher and Halal I think only eating the animal is banned not using the animals products. Anti vaccine extremist used to be Far left hippies many of whom were vegans but now most anti vaccine extremist are far right Christian fundamentalist.

If vegans realize how much harm and injury comes to Horseshoe Crabs, what about all the FETUSES that are Killed for vaccines and put Into vaccines? Aborted Human Fetal Cell DNA which is in the so called "Live" vaccines which actually shed illnesses for around 30-60 days. A person for example can get a live vaccine-Hepatitis, Chicken pox, MMR or 1 of several others and make you sick. MRC-5 is boy Fetal Cell DNA and WI-38 is girl Fetal Cell DNA. They shoot the boy cells into girls and the girl cells into boys. While vegans are trying to be kind and save the lives of animals, they are unaware of how Pharma harms developing babies and just how "Cannibalistic" our Pharma science has become.

Wow! how interesting!

Looks like pharma companies still need nature?
I thought by now they could produce ever known molecule or protein from some magical flask and vial.

I guess not.
so that gets me back to maybe we rely to heavily in this country on one side of medicine to the point they have had no competition. Now we have medical tyranny.
