I was thrilled to learn that Mrs. Debra L. Vinnedge was honored with the Evangelium Vitae Award at the Catholic Medical Association (CMA) conference in Orlando last month. Debi has been an advisor and friend since I first read about vaccines grown in cell lines derived from aborted human fetuses. Our family has been grateful for her efforts to provide parents with ethical and safer alternatives. The CMA recognized Debi for her “outstanding service to the prolife movement” and her accomplishment over the past fourteen years at her organization, Children of God for Life. Cardinal Burke presented her with the award (shown above).
Here’s a list of the fruits of her organization’s efforts since 2000.
They conducted nationwide seminars, appeared on local and national television and radio programs, issued massive press releases and paid advertisements, and distributed hundreds of thousands of free vaccine brochures world-wide to educate the public.
They filed a formal appeal with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for personal import of the ethical Japanese rubella vaccines under federal regulations for hundreds of families.
Their supporters are demanding legislation that would require accurate labeling and informed consent so that ethical alternatives may be selected, thus opening the market for companies willing to provide them.
And last but not least, they forged a partnership with Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute—a non-profit prolife biotech company whose goal is to provide moral alternatives for all problem vaccines.
Please join me in thanking Debi for all her hard work for our children.
