Maybe because they can sense the ‘preservatives’ that are known carcinogens being pushed through their helpless childs bodies….mercury, aluminium, formaldehyde and other toxic materials are used in vaccines to help them keep for longer shelf times. But check out this link… apparently it IS all for not. @LoveINpower: The USA requires more infant vaccinations than any other nation, yet it ranks 34th in infant mortality.

I’ll be submitting mine today to HenriettaLacksProject@gmail.com
I am now collecting letters to President Obama for the Henrietta Lacks Project with the objectives of:
1. Impressing upon him the need to publicly acknowledge and apologize to the Lacks family.
2. Raise a counter discourse to the narrative written by Rebecca Skloot and soon-to-be movie by Oprah Winfrey.
3. Create a space for public discussion about the abuse and appropriation of black women’s bodies for the sake of research and profit.
Why Henrietta Lacks? Her cells (HeLa) were extracted from her body while she was dying without the consent of her or her family. It was hidden for decades and her family has yet to receive proper justice. Her cells have led to the cure for polio and informed the research that led to gene mapping, invitro fertilization, and other solutions to health-medical issues.
Letters can be of any length but should discuss your unique perspective on the use of black women’s bodies in U.S history, critique/limitations of Rebecca Skloots narrative, and why public acknowledgement/ apology is critical to move toward justice.
Submissions and Questions can be directed to: HenriettaLacksProject@gmail.com
