Why is Paul Offit's "Autism" Org Teaching VACCINE Compliance Propaganda Through CDC

Paul offit babyManaging Editor's Note: Why doesn't the Autism Science Foundation take autism out of their name once and for all? They are the Vaccine Schedule Protection Foundation. They exist to protect the vaccine schedule and the autism community has raised the most red flags (with the Gardasil girls close behind, but really, the Cervical Science Foundation sounds a bit risque.) This seminar is on par with the AAP inviting parents to focus groups to review ads to dispel the message from certain friends of ours (us!) and "celebrities." Smell the flop sweat?  Do you recall that the former head of the CDC Dr. Julie Gerberding is now head of Merck's vaccine division - which includes Dr. Paul Offit's RotaTeq vaccine in its stable of products?

Are Federal dollars being used to fund this seminar?

Making the CASE for Vaccine Safety:
A New Model for Communicating with Parents

December 9 , 2010 - 12:00 - 1:00 pm ET
(9:00 am PT, 11:00 am CT)

Speaker:
Alison Singer, MBA
Founder and President of Autism Science Foundation (ASF)

Autism was first described by Dr. Leo Kanner in 1943. Despite years of scientific study the cause of autism is still unknown. One theory popular in the late 1900s and early 2000s, that vaccines cause autism, has since been disproven by numerous studies conducted in multiple labs around the world.

Nurses, doctors and other health care workers face significant barriers when communicating with parents regarding the facts about vaccine safety. Singer proposes a new framework for communicating with parents.

This program will focus on the science of autism and the latest research regarding autism. It will also address barriers to communication, the top parental concerns regarding vaccines and how to address these concerns using the CASE method.

Objectives:
After watching this broadcast participants will be able to:

    * Identify the four elements of the CASE method of communication
    * Apply the CASE model to effectively respond to frequently asked questions about vaccine safety and autism awareness
    * Describe the latest scientific research on the causes of autism

We are being manipulated. They are playing us for fools!

“Immunization Ploys Are Parents Being Manipulated?”

"We could kneel on broken glass and give the American Medical Association (AMA) everything it wanted, and still they will oppose it. They are going to push us as far as possible, and then they are just going to screw us." --Federal Healthcare Task Force Member, Time, (September 20, 1993), p. 61.

"Every doctor will allow a colleague to decimate a whole countryside sooner than violate the bond of professional etiquette by giving him away." --George Bernard Shaw

VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM

Benedetta

Some times I have dark moments. I had one last night, hate them. I start thinking of the people that have a little power and think they are so much more intelligent than us. The ones that decided to give DPT shots and MMR shot, and Hep B shots knowing that a percentage of people would react.

Paul Offit is a FOOL in captial letters. There are many, many, many people like him and he was dumb enough to put HIS face up to be shown.

What's that called "a poster child"

Paul Offit--If you ever read any of this think about how you have made yourself the poster child of the very people that I think about in my darkest moments.

Surely there was something else you could have done with your life?

WL

Offit is a f-ing creep and Singer and the others who worship him are even bigger creeps.

I Love Acronyms

What exactly is the CASE method of communication? Creative folks, come up with a good description of "CASE."

Here's mine:

CALL them
ANTI-VACCINE if they don't
SUBMIT their kids to
EVERY vaccine.


Katie Wright

It drives me crazy how Offit is a doppelganer for the Dwarf Dad in "Little People Big World!"

mary

I'm not offended by Cherry's comment. I laughed out loud at it.

Cherry Sperlin Misra

To Mike, I know that it may seem to you that people on AOA are just anti vaccine- But you have to reflect on the fact that these are all parents who trusted their doctors and the public health officials, gave all the mandated or recommended vaccines and then saw their normal baby lose touch with reality and in some cases suffer great pain. They dont want this to happen to one more child. Under the anger and sarcasm are people who want to see other children saved from the fate of autism. I am not an autism parent, but I have seen with my own eyes the appearance of autism for the first time in my school in Delhi in about 1994 and now I have to see several cases , from very mild to moderate autism every year.(MY school only has 50-60 kids per year !)Those kids would not have been autistic if they had been born 25 years ago or even 20 years ago. I have had kids in my school who became deaf after DTP vaccines and there is a handicapped mom in my school now who got polio after the polio drops as a child (Yes, that is a known phenomenon) Probably many of us here would still give some vaccines, very very carefully, if we had to do it again, but believe me, the story of vaccines is not what you imagine. Start researching the topic of vaccine "adverse events" and you will be dismayed at how you were ignorant of the facts and truth, just as we were at one time

Stagmom

Mike, we have several categories here - and vaccination is just one of them. Remember that law in physics about for every reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction? THAT. KIM

Cherry Sperlin Misra

Autism Grandma, I love the analogy. By chance, last evening I thought of another one. I was watching my grandkids play a board game and somehow the old game called Clue came to mind. As I recall, one had to find out who committed a crime, how and where- so it would be something like "In the kitchen with the pistol"
Our vaccine Clue game would say "In the hospital with the Hep B vaccine" -(With apologies if my sense of humour is over the top here.)

Libby

Alison Singer, MBA?

MBA gives her credibility to lecture on vaccines?

Funny, I have an MBA and the NY Times said I was a raving lunatic.

Ugh!

MAKE AUTISM STOP

Mike

Why doesn't Age of Autism take autism out of the name when your clear agenda is solely to oppose vaccination?

michael framson

The same Paul Offit conducted "continuing medical education(CME)" courses for pediatricians, which would provide them with techniques to make parents "feel" like they were making an "informed" decision regarding vaccinations. The course description specifically stated, "parents would not of course be making an informed decision, but pediatricians would be taught ways to make them feel like they had."

How do you spell deception? PAUL OFFIT ALLISON SINGER

Anonym

I would like to see him getting those 10,000
vaccines and giving him a few hundred of his own Rotateq to. We need to see how "effective and safe" these vaccines are.
Put the kid down dr.offit and stay away from our babies and children.

Autism Grandma

Re: Post by RN Mommy

"Satan is alive and well and working through the US vaccine program. In the name of "good", he has managed to harm so many of our innocent children." AMEN SISTER!!!!

Just before Halloween, someone posted this photo with Offit as the GRIM REAPER wearing a hooded black cloak and the reaper sickle over his head. It was just too perfectly evil and perfectly appropriate. If a picture is worth a thousand words that picture is worth a trillion words.

I was hoping that Age of Autism would post this, but I am wondering if perhaps there is any legal liability in doing that??? Why would there be though, when there have been all kinds of terribly unfair racist images of Obama, and he's the president, and Offit is just a financially compensated industry spokesperson ...and the Grim Reaper image of Offit is totally justified.

julie

Herod comes to mind. Decimating the male children.

JenB

I'm wondering how "a new framework for communicating with parents" could really be anything other than a rehashing of the old "talking points" which ignores the otherwise unexplained nationwide epidemics of immune damage in our children and the quality of "science" that supports the current practices.

Is this more like an exercise in saying "Take heart, fellow peds, we have proof that our public outreach efforts are not a complete and total epic fail. Keep up the good fight!" by holding up an autism parent who does not believe vaccination has a possible role?

Janet Sheehan

first word that comes to my mind is "creep"...looks like others share the same sentiment! that is the scariest picture of someone holding a baby I have ever seen...someone grab that kid and RUNNNNNN!!!!!!

Lisa Clark

It does not feel like we are being educated. It feels like being intimidated. It feels like a scare tactic. The worst case of what is possible if you don't fill your child with this crap. IT screams desperation. CDC and DR OFFIT, stop being so desperate. It is very sad.

RN Mommy

Also find that photo extemely creepy, He looks like the devil! Satan is alive and well and working through the US vaccine program. In the name of "good", he has managed to harm so many of our innocent children.

cmo

He has a sort of a "Adolf Hitler of vaccines" persona ...

That my someday be his legacy.

Judith

What a freaking joke that "Autism Science" Foundation is!!! What science?? Unless there is a science to marketing vaccines? Maybe there is!
Proffit is creepy! I would be FREAKED out if someone like him was holding my baby!

Population Control

It doesn't matter how many there are, they're still safe.

funny onesies

I don't get it either. Since they don't believe that vaccines have anything to do with autism - why do they keep talking about them?

casey

Every time I see that picture I want to go hide under the covers. He is such a creep. And no Wendy, he does look sinister. Not a bias. Who would hold a baby that isn't theirs, stepping out of the darkness like a freaking boogie man with a smirk on their face and call it good publicity? And look at the baby's face. It's like "Oh shit! It's got me! Somebody help me!"

But this is beside the point, Benedetta is correct this is not 'education' this is indoctrination.

We need to know about what Singer and friends are up to....

wendy

ok, does he have an evil look about him or am i just biased? this is quite the spin! We gotta get a pic of Sahah palin with the caption "Spin Baby Spin!!"

Benedetta

"A New Model for Communicating with Parents" or

A New Model to continue to LIE to the parents?

Education or Indoctrination?

nhokkanen

Great points. What IS an "autism science" group doing talking about improving vaccine marketing? Shouldn't an "autism science" group be helping families of children with autism? Or helping those hidden hordes of adults with autism?

That ominous gray photo of Offit pushing a baby's face into his hard shirt buttons creeps me out.
