(LifeSiteNews) — A whistleblower employed by vaccine maker Pfizer has been fired after she leaked emails by company executives discussing how to best hide information from the public regarding the use of fetal cell lines derived from aborted babies in the development of the COVID vaccine.
A new video released by Project Veritas on Saturday featured an audio recording of a message that was left on Melissa Strickler’s voicemail, informing her of her termination. Strickler is the whistleblower who recently exposed Pfizer’s policy of withholding information from the public on the use of fetal cell lines in creating the vaccine. The message was left by K.J. Wigglesworth from the corporate office of Pfizer in New York City who spoke on behalf of Ian MacKellar, VP and site leader at the McPherson plant where Strickler was employed.
Wigglesworth said, “We’ve been advised to let you know that you are not under any circumstances to return to work. Your termination is being processed at the current time. If you have any questions, contact Mr. MacKellar at the McPherson plant, and I’m sure that he will explain the reasons why.”
In the video exposing her company, Strickler was asked by Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, if she was worried about the potential consequences of her decision to talk with him.
“I don’t know if anyone’s ever done this before,” said O’Keefe. “I don’t see much investigative reporting in the big pharma, certainly not emails from executives.”
The founder of Project Veritas asked Strickler if she was afraid of “blowing the whistle at Pfizer” as she was still a current employee at Pfizer at the time, to which Strickler replied that she was “a little anxious and nervous at what they may think or do.”
Strickler mentioned several times in the video that what she found out about her own company shocked her so much that she had to take a “mental leave of absence.”
“I was genuinely traumatized and sickened from the things I saw, and I needed to leave, but I didn’t want to quit because I didn’t know what to do, so I just took a leave of absence [in order to] gather my thoughts and heal from this information,” she said.
O’Keefe called her action an “extraordinary act” and argued that, while Strickler initially decided to take a leave of absence, publishing emails from the company’s Vice President was “another step entirely.”
“Are you afraid of doing this?” he asked.
“A little bit, but I have faith that I’ll be protected or whatever the outcome is, is what it’s supposed to be,” replied Strickler. “I’m at peace with it.”
It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.
We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.
Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.
On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.
While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.
This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.
Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:
- A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
- A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
- A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
- A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
- A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
- A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
- A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)
All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!
And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.
While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.
And now, it would seem that time has officially come.
"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.
This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."
In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."
These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.
As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.
But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.
This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.
Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

Throughout her conversation with O’Keefe, Strickler insisted that her actions were not politically motivated.
She told Project Veritas that her motives were to make sure people are aware of these issues before making the decision to get vaccinated or not.
“This is [about] informed consent on injecting something inside of you from a company that has ‘called it an experimental vaccine.’”
Another motive cited by Strickler was Pfizer’s recent attempt to obtain FDA approval for vaccination on children, which she said contributed to her decision to expose the cover up.
“It needs to be seen by the people because they’re trying to give this to kids, and if they’re being this deceptive about it, I don’t feel comfortable being silent while they’re trying to give it to babies who can’t talk.”
The Pfizer whistleblower also said she’s not an anti-vaxxer and that she is passionate about her job.
“I work at a pharmaceutical company, I’m not an anti-vaxxer. I believe in research and science,” she said, adding that she has worked at Pfizer for ten years. “I’ve been trained there … I know the process, I love my job.”
When asked by O’Keefe what she thought the reactions to the leaked emails would be, Strickler replied, “I pray that it unites us … that we can [ask ourselves] ‘why do they think they can make us take something when they’re not even honest about what they’re doing or what’s in it?’”
Strickler concluded the video by directly addressing Pfizer: “You guys are very adamant about integrity and making sure that things are done right, and that things are always double-checked. But I’m just one person, one face of many of your employees who are willing to fight this, and reveal to the world what’s going on, and all we want is for you to be transparent and honest with us and do the right thing.”
Two days later, Pfizer fired her.
