Child Safety or Parental Duty: New Study Maps out Core Concepts in the Vaccination Debate
Levi Quackenboss: "John Oliver, You Unfunny Shmuck..."

Response to AMA’s Status Quo Vaccine Policy, Trumping Safety

No harmThe American Medical Association does not want a vaccine safety commission (as promised by President Trump during the election.) They are quite content with their industry based system of checks and imbalances.  Read the full letter at the end of this post. Here is the response from James Grundvig and several doctors, listed as signatories at the end of this letter.

At the 2017 AMA Annual Meeting in Chicago, the AMA House of Delegates (HOD) adopted policies aimed at protecting children’s health by addressing vaccine policy, the rising incidence of myopia, lead poisoning and ocular burns from liquid laundry packets.

It remains clear that the use of vaccines benefits public and individual health. Yet the authors of a resolution on the topic said that “physicians remain concerned the current federal administration may attempt to establish new vaccine policy based on unfounded and unscientific facts.”

Response to AMA’s Status Quo Vaccine Policy, Trumping Safety

23 June 2017

Since 1996, the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has led a concerted effort on
driver safety. Its excellent results reduced highway fatalities by 50 percent, per 100,000
licensed drivers, from 23.21 down to 15.26 in 2014.1

Over the same period, autism cases per 100,000 have skyrocketed from 2.1 to 25.8 cases,
or from 1 in 500 (1995) to 1 in 68 babies born in 2014, more than a seven-old increase. 2
If those statistics aren’t damning enough, for the first time since 1993, U.S. “life expectancy”
has declined3 and a HHS-sponsored study in 2011 reported that nearly 43% of US children
(32 million) had at least 1 of 20 chronic health conditions, increasing to 54.1% when
overweight, obesity, or being at risk for developmental delays are included.4 Of course, we
are supposed to believe that the dramatic spike in childhood illness and cases of autism has
nothing to do with tripling of the number of vaccines on the CDC’s Childhood Immunization
Schedule between 1996 and 2017.5,6 It should be obvious that such a powerful correlation
should be examined. But it is not being investigated.

How can the FHWA get safety so right, but the three federal agencies tasked with the
safeguarding the health of U.S. citizens—the CDC, the NIH, and FDA—get safety so wrong?
That begs the question, where is the American Medical Association (AMA) demanding more
research to determine why our children are suffering through an autism epidemic?
One answer: Big Pharma-funded professional organizations, like the AMA and the
American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), have gone to great lengths to ensure that vaccine
safety remain in the hands of policymakers; they have systematically blocked efforts of
investigations by independent scientists.

Deep Flaws within the Three Agencies



The AMA’s view on vaccine safety—that the status quo is fine and needs no changes—runs
counter to the evidence. None of the three-letter agencies are capable of ensuring vaccine
safety. The entire system of checks and balances has been so upended that safety, quality
control, and quality assurance within the U.S. immunization program has been completely
compromised. The flaws are so deep and pervasive that nothing short of a total overhaul
should be undertaken. Soon, the crumbling edifice of “vaccine safety” will collapse under its
own weight.

So how can the AMA condone “flawed science” and “political manipulation” at the CDC, the
NIH, FDA, and within the IOM? Does the AMA believe the echolalia repetition of “safe and
effective” is the same as “science-based evidence?”

Why does the AMA continue to condone the CDC’s efforts, even after the domestic (Dr.
William Thompson whistleblower7) and international (Danish scientist Poul Thorsen8,9)
fraudulent science studies have been exposed?

Response to AMA’s Status Quo Position

On June 19, AMA News senior staff writer, Sara Berg, published an Opinion: “AMA backs
evidence-based vaccine policy, opposes new commission.”10

For many doctors, lawyers, professionals, advocates, and parents of autistic and chronically
ill children, we stand against the AMA and the rest of our severely broken, corrupt system
of government organizations. They have done nothing as an entire generation of children
has spiraled in to a litany of debilitating illnesses, more than at any time in human history.
Vaccines are currently advocated for the elderly, the infirmed, all adults, all pregnant
women and their fetuses, and all children of all ages, including premies and micropremies.
The standards of vaccine safety must be closely examined. Vaccine trials are only interested
in the development of an antibody after a muscle has been injected with foreign matter.
The combined and cumulative effects of 55 shots, 209 vaccine antigens, 525 mcg of
mercury and 13,425 mcg of aluminum that have been injected into a child by 18 years of
age in accordance with the CDC’s 2017 childhood immunization schedule has never been
examined. In fact, it has never even been questioned.

The AMA’s blathering that, “physicians remain concerned the current federal
administration may attempt to establish new vaccine policy based on unfounded and
unscientific facts” is a red herring. It is meant to distract from the current state of poor
health experienced by today’s children.

A new, fully transparent Vaccine Safety Commission must be formed. With nearly 250
vaccines in the developmental pipeline,11 examining the safety of injections cannot be
overstated. The three-letter agencies, which would subvert this effort, are clearly looking
through tainted rose-colored glasses intent on protecting the status quo.

We call on Dr. Kobler and the AMA to a public discussion of, and if necessary, debate on
vaccine safety issues.

From AMA:

At the 2017 AMA Annual Meeting in Chicago, the AMA House of Delegates (HOD) adopted policies aimed at protecting children’s health by addressing vaccine policy, the rising incidence of myopia, lead poisoning and ocular burns from liquid laundry packets.

It remains clear that the use of vaccines benefits public and individual health. Yet the authors of a resolution on the topic said that “physicians remain concerned the current federal administration may attempt to establish new vaccine policy based on unfounded and unscientific facts.”

In recognition that vaccinations are safe and effective, and that their benefits far outweigh any risks, the AMA adopted policy that:

  • Supports the rigorous scientific process of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices as well as its development of recommended immunization schedules for the nation.
  • Recognizes the substantial body of scientific evidence that has disproven a link between vaccines and autism.
  • Opposes the creation of a new federal commission on vaccine safety whose task is to study an association between autism and vaccines. 

“The AMA fully supports the overwhelming body of evidence and rigorous scientific process used by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices which demonstrate vaccines are among the most effective and safest interventions to both prevent individual illness and protect the health of the public,” William E. Kobler, MD said in a statement. Dr. Kobler is a member of the AMA Board of Trustees. 

“We are deeply concerned that creating a new federal commission on vaccine safety to study the already disproven association between autism and vaccines would cause unnecessary confusion and adversely impact parental decision-making and immunization practices,” Dr. Kobler added. “The United States has a long-standing system for ensuring the ongoing development, safety, and efficacy of vaccines.”  

“The AMA will continue its work to promote public understanding and confidence in the use of vaccines in order to prevent resurgence in vaccine-preventable illnesses and deaths,” concluded Dr. Kobler.

https://www.healthnutnews.com/expert-believes-the-lower-teen-birth-rate-may-be-due-to-infertility-from-gardasil/

Based on birth certificate data, teen birthrates are dropping. In 2015, the teen birthrate hit a record low, dropping 8%. In 2014, the birthrate per 1000 teen girls (aged 15 to 19) fell to 22.3 births. Since 1991 there’s been a 64% decrease.

The CDC is touting (as you can imagine) the success of birth control. After all, they’ve spent decades as “pharma’s marketing voice.”1 But, what if something else more sinister is responsible for the lower birthrate?

THAT IS WHERE GARDAKIL COMES IN !!

Hans Hitten

AoA needs to write a piece on the glorious victory against Gardasil in Ireland .

Kevin Kelleher
“Part of it is equally us being able to put in place a system where they have enough knowledge to undertake the decisions that are appropriate. Now that’s quite a paternalistic approach as well. Cause actually what I’m saying is, I want to give them [parents] the knowledge to make the decisions I want them to make.”
---------------------------------------------
In a disturbing turn of events, Big Pharma pushes to hijack informed consent by removing side effects from direct-to-consumer pharmaceutical advertising.

David Weiner

I applaud these doctors for their dissent here, but I must say: What really ought to happen is that the vaccine program should be suspended until there has been an adequate demonstration of safety. That will light a fire under the folks who want to see the program endure.

Actually, I think that the program should be abolished, but the above would be a tolerable compromise.

David Weiner

Good response to AMA plutocrats.

One question though: What exactly did FHWA do to decrease highway fatalities? Does it, in fact, deserve the credit for this?

John Stone

Six years of lies and wasted time. In May 2011 I wrote an open letter to NIH Director Francis Collins writing along similar lines and got back a month later a stupid message.

The image that Kim found at the time of the sinking ship is somewhat appropriate. What the AAP and Francis Collins are really about is saying "trust us" as they steer the ship onto the rocks or the iceberg. But really, of course, unlike marriners negotiating the sea, who make mistakes, it actually seems that they are doing it deliberately.

getting hit by a bus is safer than taking ANY vaccine :

ELIMINATE DISSENSION , CONTROL ALL DOCTORS FROM A CENTRAL POINT :

The minister also told the gathering that he wanted to introduce a new system whereby GPs were salaried. Currently, GPs are self-employed but take on contracts to provide services such as the medical card scheme for the HSE. He said the option of salaried GPs, who would be paid by the HSE, should be considered. Negotiations on a new contract between the HSE and GPs are under way.

"I acknowledge also that GPs working in rural and socially deprived areas play a particularly important role. That is why I am committed to ensuring that general practice in such areas remains a sustainable option. This includes discussing the possibility of an option of salaried GPs," he said.

HarvardMD

Group think at its worse!

How else to understand doctors adhering to this ridiculous position of opposing a commission on medical safety mostly impacting children.

There's also the Left-Right divide, and the politically easy stance of opposing Trump,even if Robert Kennedy Jr would head the comission.

The medical profession, as a whole, has signaled its demise. They will increasingly loose the public's trust.

And look at the mercenaries filling up the comments . All fully well paid up members of Pharma Harma Brigade, not a dissenting voice with any knowledge anywhere.

Simon Harris (shame on you , damn scoundrel)
You will not be forgotten for this.

"If you want to give medical advice on vaccinations, become a doctor. If not, get out of the way and stay away from our public health policy."

Paul Thomas

I would sign on in a heart beat. I couldn't agree more. To take a stand against investigating vaccine saftey when no studies, NONE, have been done to carefully examine the effects of the entire vaccine schedule over time compared to a true placebo group (non-vaccinated) is beyond reason or common sense.
Obviously the AMA and AAP, the CDC and the NIH, along with all who cling to the mantra "vaccines are safe and effective" are either conflicted, corrupt or ignorant.
With the hundreds of studies showing problems with vaccines or vaccine ingredients. With the understanding of immune activation and the direct toxicity of aluminum, mercury etc. One simply needs to pause, step back from the polarized debate and think. If we don't have the vaccinated to unvaccinated studies ... WHY not?
Until we do have lots and lots of studies ongoing and completed we simply cannot say one way or the other if vaccines are safe. The basic science literature would suggest they won't be. Let us get these studies going folks.

South Korea 2012 autism rate 1 in 38
South Carolina 2017 autism rate 1 in 28
South London May2017 autism rate 1 in 9

The South Pole seems like the safest place to be , 0% autism . No vaccines down there .

Barry

It remains clear that the use of vaccines benefits public and individual health.

**********

No, that is not clear at all.

Ask someone to PROVE that any vaccine has ever prevented a disease of any kind... and they can't. They might get mad at you for asking the question. And/or admonish you with far reaching assumptions, inferred from industry funded, dubiously crafted statistics. But they will never be able to provide scientific proof of vaccine efficacy, or safety. Because it doesn't exist.

The only thing clear to me is that when a doctor vaccinates a child, the medical community enjoys 100% of the financial benefits. While the child assumes 100% of the risk.

bob moffit

I am trying .. very hard .. to understand the reasons WHY the AMA is opposed to the creation of a federal commission on vaccine safety whose task is to study an association between autism and vaccines. The TWO main reasons given ....

#1 .. the AMA supports the rigorous scientific process of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices as well as its development of recommended immunization schedules for the nation.

#2 .. the AMA recognizes the substantial body of scientific evidence that has disproven a link between vaccines and autism

I believe common sense should require the AMA to SUPPORT the commission .. if for no other reason than to PROVE their strong professional convictions .. namely ... that vaccines are as safe and effective as the AMA believes them to be. NO?

In other words .. their reasons to oppose the Commission .. are the exact reasons they should be strongly supporting the Commission .. made even obvious by the following statement attributed to Dr. Kobler ..

“We are deeply concerned that creating a new federal commission on vaccine safety to study the already disproven association between autism and vaccines would cause unnecessary confusion and adversely impact parental decision-making and immunization practices,” ....

How does Dr Kobler KNOW .. in advance of the Commission .. "that it WOULD cause unnecessary confusion and adversely impact parental decision-making and immunization practices"?

In any event .. it is beyond shameful the AMA is opposed to the Commission on such spurious .. self-vested grounds .. indeed .. possibly clear and convincing EVIDENCE of professional malfeasance .. all to allow the AMA to ..... "continue its work to promote public understanding and confidence in the use of vaccines in order to prevent resurgence in vaccine-preventable illnesses and deaths,”

AND THE BAND PLAYS ON .. AND .. ON ..
