The Newer, Better Shingles Vaccine

The April Pharmacists Letter came out with some talk on the new Shingrix, shingles vaccine, which is said to be preferred by the CDC over Zostavax.

There’s another reason, besides markedly superior efficacy, to like the new vaccine offered by Glaxo SmithKline.  Merck’s Zostavax is not so highly purified, and has the liability of having been developed with that MRC-5 strain of cells obtained from the pulmonary tissue of a 14 week, electively aborted, male human fetus.

If you prefer human organ and parts donations to be voluntary, then you have a few good reasons to choose Shingrix over Zostavax for preventing shingles.   Shingrix is made using hamster ovary cells rather than a cell line from a killed human fetus.  The GSK product is highly purified, has undergone extensive clinical trials, and is showing better efficacy and longevity of protection against shingles than Zostavax.

The source of the MRC-5 cell line is no secret.  But you might want access to the drug information from Merck and Glaxo SmithKline to have certainty about how these vaccines are made.  Click them, look for the section called DESCRIPTION and compare.

Remember the folks at cogforlife.org who keep a comprehensive repository of information about vaccines and other medical products which have ethically controversial origins, as well as available alternative products which can be used in their place.

ACOG Admits Abortion Pill Mifepristone is an Underdose

If it were real medicine, we would say that the currently prescribed dose of mifepristone (RU-486) in the abortion pill regimen is “subtherapeutic”.  Since abortion isn’t therapy, ‘underdose’ is a better description.  In this long article from July, 2017, the NYT informs us that the ACOG (American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) admit that mifepristone fails 30 to 50 percent of the time.

Your’s truly thinks it fails more often than that, and that the misoprostil does the heavy lifting of a chemical abortion, by causing the embryo or early fetus to be expelled, most of the time.  Then the rest of the patients show up in our emergency departments, with an incomplete abortion.

Planned Parenthood saved money by cutting the original FDA approved 600mg mifepristone dose down to a third, in their chemical abortion regimen.  After many years, they persuaded the FDA to approve that lower dose  with a claim that there’s no difference in efficacy between 600 and 200mg.  Dr Daniel Grossman has claimed that mifepristone fails to starve the embryo or fetus out, up to 46% of the time.  He implies that it is mostly the lack of the second drug, misoprostil which is saving babies, when women change their mind about an abortion, rather than progesterone doses that are given as an antidote to mifepristone.

Isn’t that interesting?   Perhaps mifepristone has largely been a boondoggle all these years.  In other parts of the world, mifepristone is skipped, and misoprostil alone is used for a chemical abortion.   It is said to be 75 to 85 percent effective in expelling an embryo or early fetus in the first trimester, when used by itself.

One thing is certain.  The chemical abortion regimen has turned hospitals into abortion mills, whether they intended to be in that business or not.

Another John Jenkins Fail at Notre Dame

Dr. Gerard Bradley, Professor at Notre Dame’s Law School, has taken down Fr. John  Jenkins for failing to exercise the religious freedom now being respected by the federal government under President Trump.  Jenkins apparently likes to cover those birth control pills for Notre Dame staff and students.   He started out by retaining the entire Obamacare birth control policy, but, under pressure, decided to repudiate the morning after pills, while keeping coverage of what he called ‘contraceptives’.   Read Dr. Bradley’s worthy article HERE.

Fr. Jenkins likely has not enough understanding to know which birth control is abortifacient.  This pharmacist suspects that he really doesn’t care.  Just to clarify for everyone who DOES care:

The levonorgestrel morning after pills don’t work very well, and when they do, they can stop the life of an early embryo.  The (anti-progesterone),  ulipristal acetate, morning after pill  also has abortive mechanism.

Progestin only birth control pills, shots and implants are not very effective at suppressing ovulation, so a significant portion of their mechanism operates after fertilization (kills early embryos).  In addition, as the patients who  use these forms of birth control grow in size, (a side effect),  their ability to stop baby production decreases.

All combination birth control pills, with both estrogen and progestin analogs, can sometimes work after fertilization, possibly to impede tubal transport or implantation, thereby killing early embryos.

When Father Jenkins says yes to birth control other than condoms and diaphragms (which are also too artificial for adherent Catholics),  he is involved in stopping human life, not merely preventing it.

The Catholic Church has been shrinking itself in stature and number by saying “never mind” to so many of us who tried to take the Church’s teachings seriously.  I have found so many other Christian denominations catching on to the natural law that Catholics used to teach. Those groups will be growing, while the likes of Fr. Jenkins run faithful Catholics off.

Thanks to Dr. Gerard Bradley for giving a cogent update and analysis of Fr. Jenkin’s latest failure.

Complaint Portal for Those Suffering Discrimination Based upon Religion or Conscience

Here’s where You Should File a Complaint if you are suffering discrimination based upon your religious or conscientious beliefs. This includes ALL health care professionals who are being pressured to do things (such as killing, maiming, or fraud) which violate their conscience.

Tired of those bogus state and federal morning after pill mandates?

Tired of those State mandates that you have to tell women where to get an abortion?

Click here.

Though Pharmer focuses on health care professions,  everyone else has First Amendment rights too.  The Trump administration is much friendlier to people of conscience, and is listening.

Cecile Richards Planning to Relinquish the Reins of Planned Parenthood

After about a decade at the helm of USA’s largest abortion mill and baby parts supplier, Cecile Richards is reported to be planning her exit strategy.  At age 60 she perhaps finds the pace of the various state and federal hearings, concerning her establishment’s Mengelian practice, to be exhausting.  Keeping morale up, while pushing her employees to score more abortions, is not an easy task.  The available SNRIs might not be powerful enough to allow her to keep up with the demands of her position.   Cecile has had to live through the years of Live Action Film coverage, along with the Daleiden Adventure, which exposed their procurement of baby parts for sale.  She has had to pretend to advocate for women who are sexually assaulted, while Planned Parenthood was covering up the abuse of so many women and girls who were having abortions.  Those kinds of gymnastics are grueling for a woman rocketing past middle age.

Your friendly Pharmer would like to encourage Cecile to make a total break, and avail herself of the counseling services at ATTWN, which assists those workers who desire to leave the abortion industry.  It’s never too late!

Twitter Veiled Threat to Trump Supporters

Today I got a little email, supposedly from Twitter. It’s to tell me about the horrible Russians manipulating their platform (to get Trump elected). Hilarious. Betcha every conservative who followed Donald Trump’s main account got this letter.

Right after Obama was elected, there was a cute email from David Axelrod:  Hello Pharmer, we’re watching you conservatives… This has the same kind of flavor.

Ya, Twitter is a joke. When Trump is out of there, Twitter is finished in the USA.  Bet they hate that fact.

Chinese Company Buys Grindr

Josh Rogin of WaPo has weighed in on the hazards of the Kunlun Group out of China, taking over the International Gay Dating App, Grindr.

So anyone who isn’t totally out and proud about being gay, and about every single one of their intimate details shared on Grindr, might have a few extra worries.  Expect China to have a bit more influence to obtain personal data, and expect it to be used.

It could be that China just fished thousands of new agents out of the closet in the USA, and maybe even a richer haul from the Middle East.

Students for Life Interviews Pro-Infanticide Soy Boy

Assuming that this soy boy is somewhat serious about his statements, and not just trolling….. If you see him in your neighborhood, put up the for sale sign fast, before he starts causing your property value to drop. He compares a two year old kid to a tree, with respect to the ability to communicate, and expresses agreement with the idea that it’s therefore OK to kill toddlers. The soy boy specimen was found and characterized at University of Tennesee, Knoxville by Students for Life of America.

FaceBook Doesn’t Know Why Their Fake News Labels Didn’t Work

It really has to do with the reputation of their curators for bias, and for promoting their decision.

Facebook is going to stop labeling what they think is fake news, because they noticed that the label is associates with more sharing, not less.  Now their hive mind will try to be more subtle, by continuing to bury opposing views, and by planting opposing articles next to the ones they don’t like.

Read Facebook’s own version here, if you want.

Why will Facebook chug along for awhile?   It has lefties and boomers  (who have the money), to carry it along for awhile.  It will slowly die off, as the boomers do.  Younger people are moving on.  Business people have to hang out for awhile, to keep the boomer customers, but those targeting younger demographics are hitting the road.
