Autism File Magazine is running a campaign featuring strong, beautiful women also known as Autism Mothers. Here's a group from New Jersey looking better than Lady Luck in Atlantic City. Eat your heart out Dove soap with the women in their undies. We are Autism Moms!

The Mothers of New Jersey:
We are powerful. Women. Mothers. Activists. Professionals. Citizens. Patriots. We demand transparency of legitimate choices. We fight on behalf of those who were injured by their vaccines and will settle for nothing less than dramatic reform of a system that is broken. We defy anyone who dares to define the boundaries of this battle in pro- or anti-vaccine terms or within the diagnostic realm of a behavioral disorder. You crossed the line when you failed to protect our children. The stakes could not be higher. Or more personal.
Bonnie McPherson: "I was educated on the power of breast milk, taught how to lay my baby on his back while he slept, and guided in the proper way to strap a car seat in my truck...but no one told me that vaccines could damage his immune system and alter his development. We need to be empowered to find a voice and band together, to again use sound judgment and care when making decisions that affect our children, our health, and our planet."
Barbara Majeski: "It is my mission to give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves, to share their truth and find resolutions to the complexities of living and thriving with neurological impairments."
Manette Loudon: "This campaign is important to me because it supports parents who believe they are alone in their fight to protect their children’s health, including their fight with the system of medicine run amok."
Claudine Liss: "The numbers of ill children in the US and around the globe are catastrophic. Drug companies and governments care too much about profits and disease management. This campaign is important to me because we must help citizens of the world to wake up and take personal responsibility for their health and the health of their children. We can no longer rely on governments or industry to protect us. We represent the future."
Louise Kuo Habakus: "I believe in the power of grass roots advocacy to create positive change. This campaign is important to me because it is a high impact, visual reminder that we are all powerful. Mothers at home. Mothers at work. Mothers both quietly and defiantly effective. Mothers writing, filming, defending, researching and rallying for choice and truth."
Hilary Downing: "The campaign is important to me because it shows intelligent professional mothers seeking out the truth, and, in the process, changing society. We are moms supporting other families, changing laws, greening our environment, healing our children. We are moms demanding change because of the damage done."
