The Commoditization of Human Beings 

Dr. Theresa Deisher

“How can you be so gullible?” Dr. Deisher remembers being called to task by a research associate in the late-1990s after she nearly purchased material that she was told came from miscarriages. It would have certainly been convenient for her work to acquire a human heart cell line, but this comment gave her pause. That pause grew to an investigative curiosity which eventually led her to confirm that this material came from electively aborted babies. As this research material became ever more pervasive and after years of suggesting that someone should do something about this practice, she felt the calling to establish her non-profit research company Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute. As an organization, it is committed not to use materials that commoditize human beings. But has the research for life-saving medical products and procedures suffered? On the contrary, Dr. Deisher lends hope with her continuing research into the moral alternatives. Having worked in a lab since she was thirteen, she is a molecular and cellular physiologist and a Stanford graduate. After graduate school, she spent her career in commercial biotechnology working for some of the largest and most successful companies in the industry including Genentech, Immunix, and Amgen. Dr. Deisher’s presentation will explain,“Regardless of your stance on women’s reproductive rights, it’s philosophically abhorrent to know that every time we inject our children with a vaccine that’s manufactured using an aborted fetal cell line –that vaccine contains contaminants from that aborted fetal cell line –DNA contaminants and cellular debris.” Also, “Embryonic stem cells are by nature tumor forming. That’s how we define them.”

The Doctors’ Plague 

Dr. Andrew Wakefield 

Like Dr. Semmelweis, Dr. Andrew Wakefield made a few crucial professional errors: he listened to women; he took seriously the concerns of his patients’ parents; he chose principle over popularity. Semmelweis didn’t live to see the day his theory of handwashing to prevent the deaths of thousands of women and babies was validated. Thankfully, Dr. Wakefield’s theory of a novel bowel disease in some children has been validated in his. Despite this, we wish he had a dollar for every time someone in the scientific or medical communities mutters something about the gut/brain connection. Dr. Wakefield’s presentation lends brilliant insight into the unintended consequences of the mass vaccination campaign and the resulting future of immunity. He is a physician, author, and filmmaker. Qualified as a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1985, he was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists in 2001. He has published over 150 original scientific articles, books, book chapters, and invited scientific commentaries. In addition to authoring two books, he is the Director and co-writer of VAXXED: from Cover-up to Catastrophe, a whistleblower story and one of the top US documentary features of 2016. VAXXED is his second movie. His third movie ____ is soon to be released.

The Anatomy of a Scientific Study 

Dr. James Lyons-Weiler

In the spring of 2019, a Priest, a Rabbi, and an Evolutionary Biologist walk into Albany, New York; but it’s no laughing matter. They and others converge to defend the religious exemption from forced vaccination and in effect to defend science itself. Philologist, Christian apologist, and critic of modern “scientism,” C.S. Lewis would be proud. Dr. Lyons-Weiler is a long-time veteran in the areas of genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics and evolutionary biology. He earned a PhD in Ecology, Evolution & Conservation Biology, and won a US DOE/Sloan Postdoc in Computational Molecular Biology at Pennsylvania State University under the mentorship of Drs. Webb Miller and Masatoshi Nei. He has served as faculty, Senior Research Scientist, and Scientific Director in support of translational research, systems biology, sequence analysis, and the creation of novel algorithmic solutions for the analysis of complex and challenging data. He is author of three books: Ebola: An Evolving Story, Cures vs. Profits: Successes in Translational Research, and The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism.

An Internist's Look at Risks, Benefits, and Ethics

Dr. Jane Orient

“Who appointed Congressman Adam Schiff as Censor-in-Chief?” On Jan 15, 2020, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against California Congressman Adam Schiff alleging he has abused government power and infringed free-speech rights. Under his influence, Google, Facebook, and Amazon created policies to de-platform and discredit what he asserted to be inaccurate information on vaccines. Following his March 1, 2019 press release, the media giants denied access to materials and information previously attainable. “The internet is supposed to provide free access to information to people of different opinions,” stated AAPS Executive Director, Jane Orient, M.D.

Dr. Orient has served as the Executive Director of AAPS since 1989 and is the President of Doctors for Disaster Preparedness. She is the editor of AAPS News (www.aapsonline.org), the Doctors for Disaster Preparedness Newsletter (www.ddponline.org), Civil Defense Perspectives (www.physiciansforcivildefense.org), and is the managing editor of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (www.jpands.org). More than 200 of her papers and op-ed pieces have been published in the scientific and popular literature on a variety of subjects including risk assessment, natural and technological hazards and nonhazards, and medical economics and ethics. She obtained her undergraduate degrees in chemistry and mathematics from the University of Arizona in Tucson and her M.D. from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1974. She completed an internal medicine residency at Parkland Memorial Hospital and University of Arizona Affiliated Hospitals and then became and instructor at the University of Arizona College of Medicine and a staff physician at the Tucson Veterans Administration Hospital. She is the author of YOUR Doctor is Not In: Healthy Skepticism about National Healthcare; Sutton’s Law (a novel about where the money is in medicine today); two novels on Kindle Books, Neomorts and Moonshine (where environmentalism is leading us as foreseen in the 1980s); and the second through fifth editions of Sapira’s Art and Science of Bedside Diagnosis published by Wolters Kluwer. She has been in solo private practice since 1981.

How to Grow a Movement from the Grassroots Up

Joshua Coleman 

Joshua recalls, “The doctor asked me, ‘Has he been sick?’ I said ‘no.’ ‘Has he been recently vaccinated?’” After his son Otto’s devastating vaccine injury, Joshua Coleman naturally took to the fight against mandatory vaccination. As a filmmaker, his activism naturally married with his craft. In 2016, he joined the Vaxxed documentary bus tour capturing over 700 stories of vaccine injury from across the country. He is credited as co-executive producer and cinematographer on the follow up film, Vaxxed II, which features those heartbreaking stories. Joshua is well known for his outside-the-box and provocative journalism. Not shying away from exposing the lies and corruption surrounding the vaccine industry, he keeps the pressure on prominent figures pushing vaccine mandates. Most recently Joshua founded the organization V is for Vaccine, launching a campaign to educate the public on basic but alarming facts about the vaccine program. This campaign has quickly caught fire, mobilizing activists all over the globe to participate in what they call Education Demonstrations. Joshua explains what can be done to shift the collective mindset of a sleeping generation.

Statistics Don't Lie; But Statisticians Sometimes Do

Karl Kanthak

“Is it illegal to catch measles if you want it?” Defending the personal and religious exemptions in Washington State last year, Karl contended, “This ‘outbreak’ was an ‘in-break.’ These people have the desire and the intent to contract natural measles for the complete and lifetime immunity it provides over the incomplete, temporary, and vaccine dependent immunity of the injection. No one caught measles who didn’t want it. There are no victims here.” Karl Kanthak is a lifelong educator and elected school board official specializing in the inaccurate data being used to restrict citizen access to both public, taxpayer supported, and private education. Mr. Kanthak’s activities include being a patient safety advocate for preventing medical errors, unnecessary treatment, and undesirable pharmaceutical interactions. Other projects include educating Health Care Providers about the identification of Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Associated Disability and Gadolinium Deposition Disease as potential causes when confronting idiopathic illnesses.

The Privilege to Know is the Duty to Act 

Irene Pi

Irene Pi is the AZ State Director of the National Vaccine Information Center, a local activist and a single mom dedicated to ‘Educating our Legislators.’ In this role Irene has helped organize protests at the CDC as well as the Capitol in DC, organizing a legislative lobby day with participants traveling in from across the nation to meet one-on-one with Federal Representatives and Senators exclusively to discuss the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, the exploding vaccine schedule and the corruption within the CDC.

Having experienced vaccine injury herself, as well as other family members, she immersed herself into the investigation of this topic befriending experts top in their fields, reading and attending lectures around the country spending well over 10,000 hours on the subject in the last 20 years. Irene works at a national level with other state leaders as well as with local constituents and legislators alike to ensure Arizona exemption laws and the Parents’ Bill of Rights are never compromised.

Gala Speaker 

Karen Kain

How much is a child’s life worth? What about your child? How many of us have considered it a necessary question to be asked? A fierce advocate for her vaccine injured daughter, Karen battled the government that injured her. Karen writes, “When you choose to vaccinate your child, you must sign a document stating that you understand the risks associated with vaccines. The document states that if your child has an adverse reaction, the government will step in and support your family with compensation. The government immediately acknowledged that my child was injured by the vaccine. Yet trust me when I say that no one from the government came forward to support me.” Karen is an advocate speaking at events raising awareness on the dangers of vaccinations and supporting the movement for healthy babies. She and Lorrin were briefly featured in the movie Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe. Lorrin crossed into the nextlife December 22, 2009, and yet, she still inspires us here in this one. Recently, Karen shared a message from Lorrin: “She said my focus of speaking should be to parents about how I survived.” We are blessed Karen will share their experience, and she and Lorrin will be honored at the summit gala.


Aborted Fetal Cell Lines: A Christian, Latter-day Saint Perspective

Jami Hepworth

A homeschooling mother of 4 beautiful children and the wife of a medical doctor, Jami and her family live on an acre in northern Nevada where they care for dairy goats, chickens, rabbits, and honey bees. She is passionate about preparedness and Permaculture. Jami would prefer to be giving more time reading classics aloud to her children and cultivating a food forest, but the battle for freedom is raging and she feels compelled to join the fight. She is a proud lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. In 2016, after discovering aborted fetal cell lines were a component in some vaccines, Jami became a diligent independent researcher on the practice of vaccination. Dismayed at how little the doctors in her life knew about vaccines and how few of her questions they could answer, she realized that making informed decisions on the subject would have to be without their help. She has since had the privilege of sharing her findings with many doctors both publicly and privately. Jami is a founding board member of the new non-profit organization — Health Freedom Nevada — and was instrumental as a citizen lobbyist in the defeat of Nevada’s latest vaccine-related bill, AB123. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.A. in German Literature and is a certified Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis instructor. Jami is currently working on a vaccine video course at www.skepticaldoctorswife.com where she will discuss the latest peer-reviewed literature and “official” government information. Her videos and materials will explain her findings in bite-sized chunks so viewers can quickly enlighten skeptical science-brained others about the truth behind vaccines.  She seeks to inspire others to be fearless in defense of liberty through her educational lectures on vaccination.

Small Farms & Big Impact: Just Say No to Monocrop

Anne Loftfield

“After twenty plus years as a mother, another twenty plus years as a corporate accountant I finally found my purpose in life when I began farming with my son.” Anne Loftfield works with her son, Greg McGoffin, on their regenerative farm High Energy Agriculture in Marana, AZ. An advocate of regenerative farming, she routinely touts its superiority over the simple “organic” label. Anne explains, “If the nutrients are absent from the soil they simply won’t be in the produce. The bacteria, enzymes, and microbes all communicate to work together to make it all happen.”  In other words, it’s not simply about the absence of toxic herbicides.


As a mother in the sixties and seventies, Anne fell victim to the convenience of processed foods and microwaves believing that food was food, all watched over by the USDA. She carefully followed the food pyramid but she preferred fresh fruits and vegetables over frozen with canned as the last resort. Having grown up with a cow and chickens, she refused to give up whole milk, butter, and eggs despite the dire warnings of cholesterol.


After twenty years in the business world, she returned to her birthplace, Tucson, and joined her son’s landscape construction company. The debacle of 2008 and 2009 brought an abrupt end to that endeavor but opened the door to a whole new world! Anne and Greg planted their first crops in 2009 and began selling at Farmers Markets in 2010. Greg attended a conference in Minnesota in December 2009 sponsored by ACRES USA to learn the best techniques and chose natural methods which avoided chemicals, commonly known as “organic.” However, as they got their hands “dirty,” so to speak, they discovered it is much better to feed and nurture the soil rather than trying to feed the plants. As a result their vegetables not only have more nutrients, they noticeably have more flavor.


As time passed Anne began fermenting vegetables to make them even more valuable for our bodies. As vegetables ferment they become more digestible, and produce vitamins and bacteria that are vital to our microbiome. New research indicates that these bacteria in fact are the communication system for our organs, leading to the designation of our gut as our second brain. Anne’s excitement is contagious, “There is so much more to learn about this mysterious world inside our guts.”


Yeah, but Does He Really Believe That?

Dan "Taxation is Theft" Behrman

Does anyone remember the inspiration of Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty or give me death?” Oh yeah, it was a stamp tax, as in a tax on… speech... in letter form. Apparently today’s apple is far removed from its revolutionary tree, and Dan distills liberty down to its root principles. “By its very definition, it is theft, and this cannot be disputed. If you don't pay, they will take it. If you try to hide it from them, they will arrest you. If you resist, they will hurt you. Theft is taking property which is not yours by the use of force or the threat of force. That is exactly what the government does every day to millions of people." Dan is a supporter of free markets, individual rights, environmental and social issues, and has delivered this message on six continents empowering people in some of the world's most impoverished nations. He is running for the Libertarian candidate for president of The United States because he believes no other presidential candidate understands that the government belongs to the people and that we are not government property. “The purpose of government is to protect our rights, not to force us to live our lives in any particular way that a simple majority has deemed preferable. Any person should be free to live their life however they prefer, so long as they don't hurt others and don't take their stuff.”

The Ethical Answer & The Quality of our Questions 

Dru Heaton

Reader, Thought Criminal, Sinner, Latter-day Saint, Fallen, Forgiven, Wretched, Redeemed, Human. Dru’s lifetime ambition to be categorically ignored, ostracized from friends and family, and threatened with criminal imprisonment has finally been realized. Motivated by a strong desire for humiliation, when Dru speaks, Nobody* listens. Intrigued to meet the savior of mankind, she decided to read the writings of Dr. Jonas Salk and was surprised to find he was actually a religious man. Her presentation finally addresses the question: “How can our government agencies say it is unethical to conduct inert placebo vaccine safety studies?”  *by Shel Silverstein
