SANTA ROSA, California (LifeSiteNews) – A 15-year-old boy in Sonoma County, California, died two days after getting his second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, with “no other significant conditions contributing” to his death, a county death report has confirmed.

The unnamed teenager died of stress cardiomyopathy with coronary artery inflammation in June, according to an investigation report last month from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office.

The deceased boy “was found unresponsive in his bedroom after his mother was checking on his welfare long after he was supposed to wake in the morning” and “was pronounced dead at the scene due to obvious death,” the report stated.

“The decedent’s body was transported to the Sonoma County Morgue Facility, where he was registered for a postmortem examination by a forensic pathologist,” it continued.

“There were no other significant conditions contributing to the death listed.”

Sonoma County investigated the death with the California State Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Press Democrat reported.

The investigation did not directly attribute the boy’s death to vaccination, despite the timing, lack of other health conditions, and well-documented cardiac side effects associated with the experimental COVID jabs.

In June, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned that the Pfizer shot is likely linked to heart inflammation, after receiving more than 1,200 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis after COVID-19 vaccination. The vast majority of cases involved men, and more 39 percent involved people under 30 years old, the FDA said at the time.

As of September, VAERS, a vaccine injury tracking system overseen by the FDA and the CDC, has received 1,590 reports of heart inflammation among young people. Around 9,000 total heart inflammation cases after COVID vaccination have been reported to VAERS as of October 1, according to openvaers.com. VAERS has been found to catch only around 1 percent of all vaccine-related adverse events.

Please SIGN this critical petition which urges the Catholic Church to demand that Big Pharma develop, produce and distribute ethical (non-abortion tainted) COVID vaccines for Catholics...and, anyone else who feels morally obliged to refuse abortion-tainted vaccines!

Over the past 10 months, the Catholic Church's teaching office (the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith - CDF) has quietly directed the Catholic faithful to protest against the use of aborted babies in the production or testing of available COVID vaccines in the West -- all of which use aborted fetal cell lines in either their development or testing phase.

Sadly, this direction has been so quiet that almost no-one knows about it.

At the same time, however, the Pope (see below), along with many other senior prelates, has been loudly promoting the uptake of these same unethically-produced vaccines amongst the Catholic faithful with only a whisper of protest.

It's clear that there is a major disconnect in the Church between word and action on this major moral issue.

But, instead of being a follower, the Church should be a leader in this area -- demanding the development of ethical vaccines (and, other ethically-developed products) for Catholics.**

In fact, there are already Catholic scientists, like Dr. Alan Moy, who are working with adult stem cells to help achieve ethical alternatives, but they have received "very little interest" from the Church, to-date.

And, to be fair, some individual bishops, like Archbishop J. Michael Miller of Vancouver, Canada, have vocally supported non-abortion tainted vaccines, with Archbishop Miller going so far as to donate towards ethical research.

But, it's time to try again and ask Church leaders in the Vatican and its US counterpart, the USCCB (the Catholic bishops' conference in the United States), to be fully consistent in word and deed on the issue of aborted fetal cell lines used to produce vaccines.

Jews have kosher foods and Muslims have halal foods. And, people from both traditions demand such foods - and, their demands are respected. As an example, please click and scroll down here to see all of the halal certificates which McDonald's needs to operate in Saudi Arabia.

So, certainly the Catholic Church could and should loudly demand that pharmaceutical companies develop and produce ethical vaccines for Catholics.

Indeed, the Church could and should ask the faithful to loudly demand ethical vaccines from Big Pharma (by providing phone numbers and email addresses, for example). And, or, the Church could and should commit to sponsoring the development of pro-life pharmaceuticals.

It should be noted here that the Catholic Church teaches that there is NO moral obligation, whatsoever, to accept a vaccine.

But, regrettably, for those who wish to take an ethically-produced COVID vaccine, even the Church's direction is hard to understand, precisely because it is contradictory.

On the one hand, the CDF says that acceptance of an abortion-tainted vaccine constitutes passive/remote material cooperation in the evil of abortion.

On the other hand the CDF also says that the acceptance of abortion-tainted vaccine is morally permissible when no ethically developed and tested vaccine is available.

At the same, however, the CDF paradoxically says that those who accept an unethical vaccine have the moral obligation to protest against it.

But then...there's the recent video of Pope Francis and other senior bishops, Archbishops and Cardinals promoting the COVID vaccines, without protesting against their gravely immoral development and testing, nor calling on Big Pharma to produce an ethical alternative.

So, where the current slate of COVID vaccines is concerned, the Church is apparently saying that you can cooperate with evil if some good may result...if you have no ethical alternative...but, you have to protest the evil...while participating in it.

And, well, the very people who are telling us to protest the unethical vaccines are, themselves, actually promoting them as, "an act of love."

That's confusing!

This kind of contradiction - saying one thing and doing another - is unacceptable because it assumes as normal the situation where only unethical vaccines are available for Catholics.

We are asking the Church to stop this seeming servility towards Big Pharma, and start a loud and active campaign promoting the development and production of ethical vaccines.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition urging Pope Francis and other Vatican authorities, as well as USCCB authorities, to loudly demand that Big Pharma develop and produce ethical vaccines for Catholics, untainted by abortion.

Thank you!

Stress cardiomyopathy, which involves rapid weakening of the heart due to extreme stress, has also been identified after injection with COVID-19 vaccines. A report recently published in the American Journal of Therapeutics detailed the case of a 65-year-old woman who developed the condition within days of taking the Moderna vaccine earlier this year.

The Sonoma County teenager’s death resembles that of a 13-year-old Michigan boy who died this summer after similarly receiving a second dose of the Pfizer jab. The reportedly healthy boy’s autopsy also revealed unexpected heart issues, his aunt disclosed in June.

Children and adolescents have extremely low risks of death and serious illness from the virus and a 0.00-0.03 percent COVID death rate, according to data from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Sonoma County has had no pediatric COVID deaths at all, Reopen California Schools, a pro-freedom organization, noted on Twitter.
