Emily Tarsell is a licensed mental health counselor and a leading advocate for HPV vaccine safety. She wrote:

There’s no one like your child and there was no one like my child, Christina. I lost my beloved 21 year old daughter three years ago. She had no pre-existing health conditions and yet died suddenly 18 days after her third injection with the HPV vaccine, Gardasil. She was found dead in her bed. After an extensive investigation we now know it was no coincidence. She died from an autoimmune response to Gardasil, a vaccine she didn’t even need. I am here to raise awareness about the suppressed truth about Gardasil because there is no one like your child; he or she should not become seriously ill or die from a vaccine.

THE GREATER GOOD looks behind the behind the fear, hype and politics that have polarized the vaccine debate in America today. The film re-frames the emotionally charged issue and offers, for the first time, the opportunity for a rational and scientific discussion on how to create a safer and more effective vaccine program.

Filmmakers Leslie Manookian, Kendall Nelson and Chris Pilaro spent over five years researching and making the film, which follows three families personally impacted by vaccination. The film also features interviews by experts from all sides of the issue, including Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center, a co-sponsor of Vaccine Awareness Week, and more than a dozen others. (A full list of experts is available HERE).

I ordered the DVD. I'm looking forward to watching it.

How's this for some good news:

I don't know whether anyone from the Center for Personal Rights was involved in this case, but bravo to the people who took this one to court. Before reading *Vaccine Epidemic,* I had no idea this BS went on. I'm glad at least one state is putting a stop to it.
