David Kirby on HuffPo: On Kirsten Gillibrand, NY Senate Choice

Kirsten gillibrandBy David Kirby 

If media accounts about Kirsten Gillibrand of New York are correct, then I am pleased to be the first to report that my new Senator is a supporter of research into possible connections between vaccines and autism.

The presumptive Senator, a moderate Democrat from the Hudson Valley, is sure to join the growing chorus of voices in the US Senate - and well beyond - in calling for more Federal funding for scientific studies into vaccines and autism, including Senators Kennedy, Dodd, McCain, Lieberman and Enzi, among others, and former Senators Clinton and Obama.

In the 110th Congress, Representative Gillibrand was one of 22 Co-Sponsors of H. R. 2832, the "Comprehensive Comparative Study of Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Populations Act of 2007." This bill would direct the Secretary of HHS "to conduct or support a comprehensive study comparing total health outcomes, including risk of autism, in vaccinated populations in the United States with such outcomes in unvaccinated populations in the United States."

Dan, when I clicked on the link you provided it went to the main page. It said "autism" couldn't be found. Can you tell me where on that site to go?
Thank you

I was so disappointed that Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney was passed over, so the news about Gillibrand's position on vaccine research is a huge relief.

Way to go NY!
