The Shocking Backroom Image Behind Every U.S. Vaccine

horseshoe crab vaccine

By Heather Callaghan

Arguably, vaccines are anything but vegan or “animal friendly” in case people were wondering. Science as a whole somehow maintains carte blanche when it comes to animal cruelty. But besides the typical cloned human cell lines and animal products used to make vaccines, another type of questionable practice takes place behind closed doors and looks more like a ghoulish scene from a dystopian sci-fi movie.

In the United States, the blue blood circulating in horseshoe crabs is vampirically taken from the strapped down creatures in order to test vaccines. Who knew? A tube is inserted into them as a crude siphon that drains them of their life force into clear jars before them.

Then again, we are talking about a field of work that just figured out that babies feel pain and then went on to discover that they feel the pain of vaccines even worse according to brain wave tests that were long overdue. It’s a wonder that the vague whole of “science” – which is often beholden to the corporate oligarchy – is worshiped like a cult with this blatant contradiction of cruelty. As you can see in the quote below, this practice takes place at the behest of pharmaceutical companies.

The Dodo is a popular animal advocacy site that celebrates all things animals.

Sarah V Schweig of The Dodo reports:

The females can lay 90,000 eggs, which feed countless species of shorebirds and bolster whole ecosystems. Only 10 of those eggs survive.

And, if you live in the U.S., the brilliantly blue blood of these animals has been used to test every vaccine you’ve ever had.

Half a million horseshoe crabs are caught and bled each year in laboratories linked to pharmaceutical companies. The animals are strapped in while their blood is extracted for 24 to 72 hours. Bottles fill up with their blood, a stunning shade of blue, which will be used to test vaccines for harmful bacteria.

Between 10 and 30 percent of the horseshoe crabs die as a result of this artificial bleeding, and female crabs are less likely to procreate after being bled. That is one way this process messes with the whole ecosystem that depends on their presence and the presence of their eggs to nourish the animal food chain. Data on global species of horseshoe crabs is insufficient, but in North and Central Amercia they are near threatened and considered in decline and vulnerable to overfishing. Is it any wonder when half a million are temporarily kidnapped each year?

They are said to be snatched while they make their way to mate and bird populations that feast on their eggs are declining. While the crabs are not directly killed and the intent is to return them to nature after the blood reaping, it is still stomach-churning to see for the first time. Alternative practices are in development but it is a wonder that the world – particularly the animal advocacy groups – went so long without noticing. (Read the rest of Schweig’s report.)

    I have many years of experience using horseshoe crab blood for vaccine testing. I worked in a lab where we tested vaccines and other injections for pyrogens which are fever causing elements.

    We did “limulus testing”: A small amount of blood from the horseshoe crab (limulus) was added to a drop of vaccine or other injection. If coagulation occurred then the presence of pyrogens was indicated in the vaccine or injection and it was discarded.

    I remember being very glad that the specially bred rabbits were no longer used to test for pyrogens. The poor rabbits were each placed in a tiny cage with a thermometer permanently in their anuses. They were regularly injected with vaccines/injections to see if they had a rise in temperature.

    I am not defending the cruel treatment of the horseshoe crab and I am certainly not defending the use of vaccines.

  • Thanks for sharing your experience

    This is new to me, thanks for the insight.

    Do you get vaccines? Not did you but will you from here forward?

  • Ben William

    Tested to see if they can cripple and maim WITHOUT being detected as the cause?

  • Ben William

    Yeah, I posted above…

    A fervor right after the jab could be used in a case where the vaccine was responsible for… fill in the blank. Ya can’t have that.

    Swear words: Dis-cussing medi-sin

    Oh, the hippocracy oath be applied to the people as well; just ask Big Pharma and their prescription writing pill dispensers how many “contra-indication side effect” deaths they have engineered in the last long while, not taking into account the multiple additional “ill-heath” conditions created by the “pills that don’t kill be designed to keep yee ill for yet another pill”.

    I have a personal pet theory that flu shots cause flu season, anyone agree? I have heard of so many people who have got the worst flu of their lives immediately following the flu shot. Many vaccines render a person or child infectious to others for a certain period after. They say they get an idea of what strain of flu will be here by looking at the southern hemisphere, as if all the people traveling between the northern and southern hemisphere won’t spread the flu until “flu season.”

  • Michele Brown

    It is not even applied there now for many years.

  • Ben William

    Autism is ‘deflection’ term. It defects ‘away’ from what is going on with multiple dosing of vaccines. I would challenge ‘any’ pro vaccine (for the lack of a better phrase) doctor to tell me the difference between one of their so-called ‘autism’ patients and a patient who has heavy metal / chemical poisoning. Truth is, they can’t. The symptoms are identical, right down to being spectral. This type of poisoning has been well documented for centuries. With vaccines (today) not only do you get heavy metal / chemical poisoning, you get a third poison in viral poisoning. This third poisoning can work in conjunction with the other two poisons or, it can manifest itself many years down the road in the form of cancer. Why people WILLINGLY traded so called childhood diseases of the eighteen, nineteenth and early twentieth century for poison and cancer ‘epidemics’ is beyond mind blowing.

  • Padraigin Eagle

    Thanks for sharing and explaining, Ben. I’m familiar with non-musical heavy metal posioning of the mass of humanity; and why people WILLINGLY traded…, well, the only information available on these matters that was deemed reliable was provided by those who promised to do no harm. Now we know, should we wish to, and for far too many, too late it surely is.

  • Afshin Nejat

    If its “good enough” for horseshoe crabs, why are you complaining?

  • Dean Wade Fayal

    My son was given the dtp shot at 2 months old. 1 hour after his vaccine he had a temp of 102. We called the doc they said it was normal and to keep an eye on him. 15 min later he had a seizure that changed our lives forever. He is nine years old now and can barley walk has seizures daily and cannot speak. He has permanent brain damage. Although testing on animals is horrible but giving these kids at 2 months old these poisonous vaccines is inhumane and criminal. We need to stop worring so much about the animals and worry more about our kids. I’m not saying if there is an outbreak of a certain virus we do nothing but these vaccines are hurting our kids and in some instances killing them. If ONE child is hurt from this crap it’s to many. My son will never get to enjoy life like he should because we are forced to give this to our kids. For anyone who reads this please please if you have children do your research on vaccines before you give it to your babys. I mean dig deep and really research it. It’s only your kids health or even their life your dealing with. Trust me. My son is living proof these vaccines are dangerous.

  • Cathy Ashwood

    If I were you, I’d be careful about sharing such information … why don’t you find a bunch of humans to test your vaccines on? There’s plenty of pro-vaxers that would be up for the challenge. Or how about those government officials trying to pass laws forcing people to vaccinate their children. Why don’t you test your vaccines on them?? Bullshit barbaric and just totally unnecessary practice in the name of science. That’s not science, it’s just an excuse to be cruel and nasty. Give me a break.

  • Cathy Ashwood

    Agree, it keeps the disease alive and kicking in my humble opinion, whether it be the flu or anything else they decide to jab into people. However, we can’t tell the pro-vaxers that aye? They’d call us crazy :/

  • Doctor Jack

    The so called “flu” Ivan, is nothing more than the body throwing off or purging toxins that have built up from improper habits of living total under out control. It is not something you catch. Therefore, any injection has absolutely nothing to do with anything other than making money. There’s not only no benefit to the one being injected, injecting poisons into one’s internal domain is always damaging and dis ease causing, sometimes resulting in death.

    please stop

    So in nature one animal can kill another for its survival and yet, people that say we are just another aninal are perturbed that we do the same as all the other animals that roam this earth, how ironic. There is at least one industry where there are these huge screens that keep the sea creatures from clogging up the inlet pumps, hoseshoe crabs were really easy to remove, I bet they could sell them to these labs. Hopefully nothing like the Sanish flu outbreak will ever happen again as long as the free market can enjoy a profit by producing a product that we need. Somebody tell me why immigrants that are not vaccinated die more and transmit diseases to others than those who do get vaccinated, And the flu season happens because we congregate together inside close spaces during colder weather, but the flu sticks around all year, mutating itself as it passes from one animal to another, making it tricky for vaccine producers to stay on top of before we all start to close ourselves up from the elements.

  • Cindy

    I know too many people who have gotten really sick when they’ve gotten the flu shot. Sicker than when they haven’t gotten them in the past. Of course they don’t get the shots after one or two times of that and they quit getting so sick too. More than a coincidence I’d say. I’ve known of some who’ve almost died after the flu shot too. Glad I never got one.

  • Ivan Sanchez

    U agree shots are poisonous, but there definitely viruses out there. I know about herx reactions. However the idea of the flu not existing is ridiculous. I doubt the many times I have gotten sick after being next to someone coughing with sickness, spread their detox to me.

  • Doctor Jack

    “It is easier to fool people than to convince people that they have been fooled.” – Mark Twain

    You have been fooled Ivan. The so called ‘flu’ is nothing more than a body initiated and conducted process of elimination just as defecation and urination are body processes of elimination. You’re doing it to yourself, over and over and over again, just as those around you are doing. Everyday you are doing and not doing things that are contributing to your own systemic toxemia. I could take you on as a client and teach you what you need to know so that you would no longer make it necessary to “get sick” but I doubt I would be allowed to give you my email or other contact information.

    Also, if you look up the word ‘virus’ in an older dictionary, the definition is “poison, as in snake venom”. That’s an accurate definition of the word and NOT what the medical prostitutes have led you to believe. The actual stuff that’s referred to as virus is the genetic debris from spent cells, which is dead by the way as human cells die off. Dead stuff doesn’t DO anything.

    If you were living physiologically correctly, you could sit next to sneezing/coughing people and nothing would happen to you Ivan. I know. I taught public school for a few years, never got sick and yet there were a lot of teachers who were frequently.

    I know I am correct here Ivan. I have been studying human physiology for 25 years and have put in over 25,000 hours of reading and research in this area. There’s no way I am incorrect. And when I ‘get sick’, I know what I’VE DONE THAT’S CAUSED MY ILLNESS. I don’t blame my ill health on viruses or bacteria or anything else except my own bad habits of living.

  • Doctor Jack

    One of the best and most accurate letters I’ve seen posted on any health issue topic anywhere. Vaccinations accomplish the duel purposes that their benefactors are shooting for – depopulation and making money, billions. I’ve gone beyond the call in attempting to wake up those in my small community but as Mark Twain purportedly said, “It’s easier to fool people than it is to convince them that they have been fooled.”

  • Ben William

    The ‘profit’ for ‘death’ equation concerning vaccines was understood in the latter part of the 18th century with the creation of the ‘smallpox’ vaccine. Based off my research, I believe the smallpox vaccine was created as a ‘tax’ scheme initially, because even though (at first) getting the puss was voluntary, you still had to pay for it. As the puss started to actually kill people and people were then ‘forced’ the puss, you ‘still’ had to pay for the puss.

    I also believe, it was what the money masters learned from the smallpox fiasco that led to the ‘treatment’ rather than heal industry.

  • Ivan Sanchez

    Well why does it spread so much? If you are right and know more than me in the past two years suffering and studying chronic Lyme and systemic candida that came on suddenly after a stressful event. Please tell me what to do, I have so many detox things, coffee enemas, special tinctures, liver and gall flushes… Candida destroys your immune system. Causing the Lyme i had when I was a kid to come out of dormancy. I can’t eat anything hardly, no sugars to fee candida, no dairy, wheat, corn… lost 50 pounds back up 10 lbs.

  • Doctor Jack

    Why does what spread so much?

    You’re in need of assistance Ivan and have been for a long time, apparently from your childhood or even infancy. From what you’ve written, your concepts are inaccurate because you’re following bad information most of which is probably from a medical perspective. Coffee enemas, special tinctures, liver/gall bladder flushes have nothing to do with improving health. Lyme isn’t something that lays in waiting and then comes out of dormancy. What’s going on with you is you have been and still are in a constant state of systemic toxemia. Your body is like a full glass of water that when occasionally there is one more negative influence, substance or condition, such as the above mentioned ‘stressful event’, that one extra “drop of water” causes the water to spew over the top and you become symptomatic. The symptoms we commonly label as disease – that is, the pain and discomfort. These symptoms are initiated by your sub conscious brain to purge toxins. In other words, the symptoms are RIGHT ACTION not wrong action. It’s the best your body can do under adverse circumstances that you’re unwittingly causing on an on-going basis. You’re talking about millions of years of evolution and evolution does not make mistakes. THE DISEASE IS THE CURE!!! So obviously, you need to know what you’re doing and not doing that’s making these various symptom complexes necessary and stop doing that which is making these symptoms necessary and start with the causes of health. I would need you to fill out a personal health profile that gives me all the information I need in order to provide you with the information you need in order to make the necessary corrections. I would need your email address so I can email it to you. Let me know if that’s what you would like to do.

  • Ivan Sanchez

    Illness, when one member of the family catches something, usually most of the rest of us get ill too. Do you mean to tell me that we all just purge toxins at the same time by coincidence? Yes I have met several others who have had Lyme as a child then gone through emotional, physical trauma and had it come back out of it’s cyst form, as under a microscope Lyme spirochetes go into cyst form and remain dormant. If I take antibiotics i have severe anxiety from the killing of the bacteria. If I take antifungals I also feel awful from the killing of candida. My arsenic levels are also 40x normal from working with treated lumber. This goes hand in hand with candida. When I try to chelate out the arsenic and other heavy metals it makes the candida flare up and get worse. My symptoms match exactly what hundreds of others say on the net.

I made sure they were posted but I don’t see them here either. Apparently, they were taken down by the moderator. That’s the only thing I can think of.
