China’s Golem Babies: There is Another Agenda

The shocking news that a team of scientists working in China have managed to gene-edit the DNA of recently-born human twins to allegedly make them genetically immune to a HIV infection is more than bizarre and irresponsible.

The Strange World of Vaccines, Pregnancy and Children

Back then, pregnant mothers were advised to take no medications, not even an aspirin! All medications were to be carefully “vetted” by the female’s obstetrician-physician and were to be taken only when absolutely necessary! …
