We had prayer at our church

We had prayer at our church last night for a lady who was pregnant and the bady died two days after she took the swine flu shot. I don't draw any conclusions from that but it is just a statement of fact.

Soldout, please stop being a

Soldout, please stop being a fear monger. We get it, you are deathly afraid of the flu shot. It is irresponsible of you to try to scare people out of getting a flu shot. We are adults who are perfectly capable of doing our own research and drawing our own conclusions. Quit trying to stuff your beliefs down our throats. And shame on you for preying on the fears of mothers to be. Unless you have an autopsy report on that baby you have no right to insinuate that it died because of the flu shot. There are many reasons the baby may have died besides the flu shot. Have you ever thought for a minute that if someone listened to you and didn't get a flu shot and then died from the flu, you would be morally responsible? Please, just back off and let people make their own decisions.

I said I draw no conclusions.

I said I draw no conclusions. It is just information. Information doesn't hurt and never causes a side effect. Everyone makes their own decisions in this still free country. No one should make a decision out of fear. If anyone ever says anything that doesn't agree or support every word off the local news or from the CDC they become a bad person. Even when you report what the CDC says people get upset if it doesn't agree with the majority. (like the number of flu deaths) I never tell anyone what to do but tell them what is out there. If I don't tell people information that is available to anyone then I would have regrets. I don't insult anyone or call names because where there is strife and envy there is every evil work. I get my information from doctors including this.

Well, soldout, maybe if you

Well, soldout, maybe if you wouldn't be so transparent about how you are trying to drum up customers for your business on a daily basis, we would think you are altruistic.

I have no type of health

I have no type of health business at all. This research is a hobby I have done for 30 years or so. For another view on the swine flu vacinnation if folks have an interest they can check out

interesting, how long this

interesting, how long this swine flu has been touted as a pandemic for what? seven months or so? we heard about it back in feb/march, then nothing over the summer, now all of a sudden it's a big deal again. anyone who wants to play russian roulette with their lives by taking a flu shot is more than welcome, but i'll take my chances and rely on my body's immune system to take care of me if and when i get sick. that's what it's there for. survival of the fittest and all that, you know. there's a reason nature weeds out the weak ones.
