SANEVax: Heart Broken Moms Offended By AAP Statements on Merck Gardasil

Broken_heart Open Letter to Dr. O. Marion Burton, president, American Academy of Pediatrics

Re: Heart-broken moms offended by statements of AAP on Gardasil®

September 16, 2011

Dear Dr. Burton:

On behalf of the thousands of parents who have either lost their perfectly healthy teenage daughters, or been left to endure the physical/mental/emotional and financial hardship of being forced to deal with the permanent disabling effects of Gardasil® vaccination, SANE Vax Inc. is offended by the thoughtless, ignorant and offensive press release issued from the office of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) on September 13, 2011.

The press release criticizes the comment made by Republican presidential candidate, Michele Bachmann regarding Gardasil® side effects as ‘false statements’; and instead stated authoritatively ‘…it (Gardasil®) has an excellent safety record.’

Are you still practicing pediatrics? Physicians in the U.S. look to the AAP for guidelines yet the AAP seems to be oblivious to the latest Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. VAERS statistics clearly show that HPV Vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, have been associated with 22, 619 adverse reactions; 8,926 of those reports requiring emergency hospitalization; and 4,616 cases where the victim did not recover. Death reports stand at 102.

According to the National Vaccine Information Center, these figures reflect 1 to 10% of the vaccine injured population reporting.

The rate of anaphylaxis in young women post HPV vaccination has been found to be significantly higher by approximately – 5 to 20 fold – than those identified in comparable school-based vaccination programs. In fact, out of the 76 vaccines approved by the FDA the HPV vaccines make up 24% of the adverse injuries being reported.

The AAP is responsible for the health and welfare of our children. The Academy’s ignorance of vaccine injuries is deplorable and unacceptable.

Instead of showing compassion to victims and their families and making attempts to clarify or further investigate the possible causes for all these unexplained side effects, you simply dismissed them all by stating: ‘There is absolutely no scientific validity to this statement.’

This letter is to inform you that SANE Vax, Inc. has recently informed the FDA that the Gardasil® vaccine currently on the market has been found to be contaminated with residual recombinant HPV DNA. This hitherto unknown contaminant may have provided a scientific basis for Gardasil-induced autoimmune-based inflammatory diseases in various tissues, including inflammation in the joints and central nervous system. If the AAP is interested in this subject, perhaps using it as part of the AAP’s continuous medical education (CME) materials in place of those distributed by Merck, please read the hyperlinked documents below.

SANE Vax Inc. is wondering if Merck’s advertisements for Gardasil® in the AAP journals and cash contributions to sponsor various AAP CME programs that promote Gardasil® influenced the decision to issue the September 13 press release. In addition, is it possible that the $433,000 contribution made by Merck to the AAP might have influenced your position? Interesting to note: this was the same year the academy endorsed Merck’s HPV vaccine.

Perhaps the AAP should consult with Governor Rick Perry about disclosure.

Written by the SANE Vax Team on behalf of Gardasil® victims around the world,
Norma Erickson, President

That CDC information sheet indicates that 8% of the adverse
reactions were serious.That means the vaccine is causing more problems than cervical cancer.How many girls will need
infertility treatment down the road?? How many will suffer
damage to their immune system?? How many adverse reactions are not reported?? 90-96%!!!???
Time will surely answer these questions.

Thanks for the great article - I'll spread it far and wide!

Vaccination is an absolute fraud which has gone on for over 200 years. There is no scientific evidence that vaccines have ever prevented anything, apart from health, sanity and common sense. Genetically engineered vaccines like hepatitis B and Gradasil are particularly harmful.

Unfortunately, most people are too deeply immersed in this institutionalised insanity to realise that vaccination is an organised criminal enterprise dressed up as disease prevention, backed up by junk science.

There is however alse real science behind vaccination, that is biochemical warfare science, namely how to cause as much harm and chronic ill-health as possible, while dismissing it as unrelated.


Your information is in direct contradiction to the VAERS reports themselves:

It really doesn't matter what the AAP are aware of providing the cash registers continue to tinkle.


Is AAP aware of the fact that the vaccine may actually increase the risk of cancer?

This question will remain unanswered until at least the following issues are addressed:

- Lack of carcinogenicity testing (- absence of evidence is not evidence of absence)
- Replacement (virus strains which have been removed are ALWAYS replaced by new ones. It is completely unknown whether the new virus strains will be more carcinogenic than the original ones which have been removed).
- Presence of recombinant DNA (rDNA)

Is AAP aware of the fact that Gardasil contains polysorbate 80/Tween 80 which is used in drug targeting to render the blood-brain barrier more porous and so facilitate passage of substances through the barrier into brain tissue?

Is AAP aware of the fact that there is an increased risk of this occurrence with Gardasil – which contains both polysorbate 80 and neurotoxics?

Is AAP aware of the fact that this may increase the risk of brain damage?

Is AAP aware of the fact that thousands of girls suffer from serious adverse events after Gardasil vaccination and that many of these present symptoms resembling brain damage?

Is AAP aware of the fact that many girls have died after vaccination with Gardasil, and of the fact that the autopsies rarely if ever include thorough investigaton of brain tissue?

Is AAP aware of the fact that according to information from the manufacturer Merck, more than seven of ten may suffer from a new medical condition after Gardasil injection?

Is AAP aware of the fact that a considerable and growing number who criticise vaccines have medically related backgrounds and that many have studied the subject extensively for years – and are far more knowledgeable than the doctors/ pediatricians who are supposed to be able to answer questions about vaccine issues?

Is AAP aware of the fact that clinical trials and safety statistics are known to be frequently and grossly manipulated?

Is AAP aware of the fact that there is growing suspicion directed towards the academy and towards many other vaccine promoters because of widespread conflicts of interest?

Notagotchaquestion deserves a special award for irrelevant pharma trolling. So, because anaphylaxis is an adverse event for all vaccines - although significantly than most for this one - it doesn't count?

They never stop trying it on. It reminds me of the joke:

Question: "How many vaccines is it safe for a pediatrician to give a two month old infant?"
Answer: "It depends how much they are getting paid."


Hopefully you guys realize that Ms. Bachmann is still wrong when linking Gardasil to mental retardation.

And all this article proves is that anaphylaxis (a medical term for allergic reaction, which all vaccines have as a possible side effect) can be a result from receiving Gardasil. Anyone with medical knowledge should know that because it pertains to every single vaccine out there.

You're correct. It's insulting!


My past investigation shows that the Teacher's Union had heavily invested their pensions with Merck.But when the schools are pushing the vaccines they do not inform the mothers and the students about the major investments they have with Merck.The system had become a complicated spider-web and politicians with no health or biology/biochemistry
degree are pushing vaccines under the lobbyist's influence.
Meanwhile the number of injured,disabled and dead continue to rise.The healthcare in the USA keep slipping to a lower and lower level.The cost is rising but things are not improving,but getting worse.Maybe that is the goal of the
pharmaceutical companies.Where are the independent researchers? This vaccine needs to be investigated and withdrawnn from the market ASAP,before more death occurs,
or cervical cancer begins to rise to higher levels.


For those who understand Spanish, Vacunacionlibre.org has excellent videos on the HPV vaccine.

Also re the above letter from Sane Vax to the AAP,
are the morbidity and mortality numbers for the USA only?

I agree that this letter should be reprinted in USA Today and/or the New York Times. I wonder if these pharmaceutically supported papers would even touch this letter.

In one of presentations during a very interesting conference in Berlin Germany 2011 "Controversies in Vaccination in Adults (CoVAC)" http://www.comtecmed.com/covac/2011/program.aspx the title was:

We ought not be surprised that main-stream media has made no effort to locate and interview the woman the approached Michelle Bachman regarding her daughter's severe adverse reaction to Gardasil.

Which is exactly why .. when the opportunity presents itself .. and .. trust me on this .. it will .. over and over again .. in the already robust campaigning for elective offices .. we desperately need someone like JOE THE PLUMBER.

Remember JOE THE PLUMBER? He's the guy who had been playing football with his son in his front yard at the time when Obama was on a "campaign walking tour" through his neighborhood. Joe said: "I'm getting ready to buy a company that makes 250 to 280 thousand dollars a year. Your new tax plan's going to tax me more, isn't it? Wouldn't your tax plan be at odds with "the American Dream"?

That's what we need .. someone who can confront ANY politician seeking their vote .. to introduce them to a family who has suffered severe damage from a vaccine .. and .. then were left to fend for themselves in the wake of the damage suffered.

We learnt something in 2004 when ten medical scientists had their arms twisted by the editor of the Lancet to issue a statement retracting "an interpretation" of the Wakefield paper on MMR which neither stated nor even hypothesised that MMR caused autism or bowel disease but simply recorded the concern of parents or reporting doctors. The paper wasn't retracted, or anything that it said: what was being said was the professionally you may not think this or consider it a possiblity: in Orwellian terms "a thought crime" to be punished. It is very obvious that we are in the world of totalitarian doctrine. At that stage science has ceased to be science.


This letter needs to be a full page piece in USA Today!

@Carol - An excellent point, as this is exactly what happened with the PCV7 vaccine (bacterial not viral, but an interesting comparison none the less).

The PCV7 vaccine did not provide protection against pneumococcal strain 19A. After widespread use of PCV7, there has been a large increase in strain 19A, a much more dangerous antibiotic-resistant strain. PCV7 had the unintended consequence of replacing easily-treatable strains with a difficult to treat strain. Their answer to the problem was PCV13 that includes strain 19A.

The California Dept of Public Health issued a recent press release urging pediatricians not to use PCV7 but PCV13 instead due to a pediatric 19A death. To my surprise, they actually admit 19A has increased in the wake of PCV7. I'm sure it was through gritted teeth as the CDPH are foremost among vaccine apologists.


In five or ten years we'll see new press releases again describing unintended consequences and urging use of PCV25, then PCV50 a few years after that. Where does it end?


Interesting article on New Scientist, a place where I don't expect to find a balanced treatment of vaccines:

"There is another serious question that may be answered sooner: what effect will the vaccine have on the other cancer-causing strains of HPV? Nature never leaves a void, so if HPV-16 and HPV-18 are suppressed by an effective vaccine, other strains of the virus will take their place. The question is, will these strains cause cervical cancer?

Results from clinical trials are not encouraging. Vaccinated women show an increased number of precancerous lesions caused by strains of HPV other than HPV-16 and HPV-18. The results are not statistically significant, but if the trend is real – and further clinical trials should tell us in a few years – there is reason for serious concern."

The AAP does not advocate children's health, but pediatrician's wealth. They are akin to teacher's unions; does anyone seriously believe teachers union demands are driven by student concerns? This is no different.

These people realized long ago that monopolizing children's health care would give them unrestricted power to set prices, treatment standards, ability to legitimize or de-legitimize practices, and enforce discipline among members. As long as they stick together, they can't be touched. Those that dissent are crushed. Word quickly spread that you tow the AAP line or else; those with differing opinions learned to keep their mouth shut.

Asking the AAP if your child needs a vaccine is comparable to asking a car salesman if you need the car he's selling. Both have a vested financial interest in your decision. What do you expect them to say?

Rosemary - thanks for your willingness to go public on this issue, our prayers are with your daughter.


CMO, a real live, grieving mother would never DO on TV - that would dispel the carefully crafted myth that we are stupid, crazy, hysterical heretics instead of educated (mostly the hard way) consumers. Can't have that, now can we?


The morning network TV shows are always trying to locate survivors of various accidents and weather related tragedies across the United States. They are on the morning shows in some fashion nearly every day.

For some reason, these shows make no effort to locate the Florida Gardasil mother or victim mentioned by Michelle Bachman.

They tell "both sides" by first telling the Gardasil side, followed by the same person telling why the other side is wrong.

Of the 76 vaccines approved by the CDC, I understand that 25% of the VAERS reports involve Gardasil. At present 83 deaths on the docket at the CDC Vaccine Court...

Banned in India, approved for boys in the USA...

35 million doses will hardly provide the "herd immunity" desired by Dr. Nancy, the AAP and the CDC.

John Stone

I think we have to emphasise the hit and run element of the AAP and the government. If they don't acknowledge the damage it really is not the same as establishing there isn't any: the only thing they establish is their bristling arrogance and negligence. The more ruthlessly they deny the more strongly they make our point.

Rosemary Mathis, Mother of Lauren, Victim of Gardasil, North Carolina

My 12 year old daughter was disabled by Gardasil. We spent tens of thousands of dollars having her treated by some of the finest hospitals in the country. Our family was under much emotional stress during that time because we truly believed we were going to lose her. We still are because I believe the vaccine has harmed her for life. Who knows what the future holds for Gardasil Victims?

Michele Bachmann was correct to stand up for the victims of Gardasil. Gardasil injury is a huge problem and should be investigated.

The benefits definitely do not outweigh the risks.

The only consolation that my pediatrician offered me when my daughter became disabled was that this horrible vaccine was recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and as long as they recommended it, he will also.

His guidance after she became injured by something he recommended was that his only duty was to send her to the proper specialist. The parents are pretty much on their own once their child becomes vaccine injured. The doctors and members of the American Academy of Pediatrics do not have a clue how to treat them or recognize the side effects.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, CDC, and FDA need to investigate this vaccine. Wake up people! Our children's health depend on you and you are asleep on the job!


Thank you Age of Autism for covering this issue.
