It’s that time of year again… parents are scrambling to make doctor appointments for their children so they can comply with daycare, preschool, elementary school, junior high, high school, and yes, now even college, vaccine requirements.
Time to stop and ask yourself, if you are one of these parents, why you are choosing to comply with these vaccine mandates.
Read through these possible reasons one by one, and check all that apply:
1. Because I want to believe that vaccines were responsible for eradicating the infectious diseases against which we vaccinate, even though data going back more than 150 years definitively show that vaccines were not responsible for the major drop in mortality from infectious diseases, or for the complete disappearance of horrible diseases for which there never was a vaccine (so how did those diseases go away, I’m wondering?), or for the increase in life expectancy. In actuality, mortality rates often increased after the initiation of mass vaccination programs. I want to believe it was the vaccines that were responsible, so I can have a false sense of security that my child will be protected from infectious diseases (at least the ones I’ve been taught to fear, i.e. the ones for which there is now a vaccine).
2. Because I want to believe that my doctor would not tell me vaccines are safe and effective if they weren’t. I want to believe that my doctor is a vaccine expert. I don’t want to know that my doctor received about two hours of vaccine information during four years of medical school, and that two hours was spent teaching how and where to inject up to 11 vaccines contained in seven syringes into a tiny infant, all at the same time (tricky to do, as there are only so many limbs on a human). I don’t want to know that my doctor receives his vaccine safety and efficacy information from the pharmaceutical reps (and oh, those reps are so good-looking!) who love to take him out to lunch and give him nice gifts, and whose companies rake in billions of dollars from vaccine sales each and every year. I must admit I was shocked when my pediatrician told me he knew that vaccines were safe because the pharmaceutical reps told him they were.
3. Because I want to believe that definitive studies have been done showing that vaccines are safe. I don’t want to learn that vaccine “safety studies” are done by the makers of the vaccines, i.e. the ones who profit to the tune of billions of dollars from vaccine sales. I don’t want to learn that vaccines are not tested against placebos, but rather are tested against other vaccines, or combinations of vaccines, or adjuvants, which cause reactions in and of themselves. If I thought about this too hard, I would see that saying one vaccine is no more dangerous than another, or than a combination of vaccines, or than a dangerous adjuvant, doesn’t mean it’s safe at all. That would be like saying heroin is safe because it’s no more dangerous than crack. Seriously, who has been allowing such studies? (Hint: the FDA, CDC, and HHS, for starters.)
4. Because I want to believe it doesn’t matter that a study comparing the health and development outcomes (both short- and long-term) between the vaccinated and unvaccinated has never been done. Upon further reflection, though, I guess that’s like saying I don’t care to know that the many disabilities and chronic health issues plaguing the children in our country, not to mention our high infant mortality rates, are being caused by the very things parents are duped into believing will protect their children. Now I’m asking myself, why hasn’t this study been done? The comparative information it would provide is so basic that a fifth grader could tell you it needs to be done.
5. Because I want to believe that vaccines are effective (even if they’re not responsible for eradicating any disease). Although that is getting harder and harder to believe, with all these “outbreaks” the media is constantly reporting. Our vaccination rates are incredibly high in the U.S., hovering in the high 90 percents almost everywhere, so why all the outbreaks? And why are so many fully vaccinated people part of these “outbreaks” – over 80% in some instances? Let me think about this for a minute… children receive five DTaP vaccines by age five, yet they are still getting pertussis. Hmm… to the average person, that would suggest that the vaccine doesn’t work… but not to our government, not to our health “professionals,” and not to our media. But the facts seem obvious to me: These vaccines are not working. Yet instead of blaming the vaccine manufacturers for selling faulty products, vaccine promoters blame parents who don’t vaccinate their children – even though those children are sailing through “outbreaks” relatively unaffected. Hmm… I wonder what the non-vaccinating parents are doing that is keeping their children so robust and healthy? Note to self to check into that.
6. Because I want to believe that our government can be trusted, including the FDA with its vaccine approvals, the CDC with its vaccine recommendations, and our state governments with their vaccine mandates. Wait a minute, though – it seems like I’m always reading about government corruption, elected officials who are beholden to their big business donors, revolving doors between government and industry, lack of oversight and accountability at every turn, pork bellies and payoffs, pharmaceutical companies fined huge sums for unethical and sometimes deadly deeds… the list goes on. Why would I believe that in this one area of business (and what a profitable one at that), everyone all of a sudden acts honorably, ethically, and morally? That seems a stretch, the more I think about it.
7. Because I want to believe that medical procedures wouldn’t be prescribed if they aren’t needed, especially for tiny babies. You know, though, that hepatitis B vaccine recommendation always gives me pause. Why is it recommended that every newborn in the U.S. get a vaccine for a disease that is transmitted sexually and/or via illegal IV drug use? That does sound a bit suspicious, now that I think about it. Could it be that the surest way to get a mom to accept the whole kit and caboodle of recommended vaccines (70+ and counting, not including those now delivered in utero) is to get her to accept that very first one, while she is in a hospital setting surrounded by a bunch of white-coats, exhausted after having just given birth, feeling somewhat indebted to the person who is now telling her that her newborn baby simply must be vaccinated for a sexually-transmitted, IV-drug-user disease? Now I must ask myself, if that sounds illogical and looks like profiteering, what about all the other vaccines they’re pushing on my kids? If I can’t trust our government and the health care industry regarding the hepatitis B vaccine, how can I trust any of their recommendations?
8. Because I want to believe that good health comes through a pill for this or a shot for that… easy-peasy. But realistically those shortcuts hardly make sense, as I’ve heard my grandma explain (who’s 95, never vaccinated, and healthy as a horse). For years she stressed the importance of three healthy meals per day, clean water, rest, exercise, fresh air, staying home when sick, staying away from others who are sick, washing my hands (with regular soap, not that newfangled antibacterial soap), and not putting dangerous stuff in my body (and I must admit, after looking at the lengthy list of vaccine ingredients recently, I don’t think my grandma would approve of injecting that stuff into anyone). Question to self: Injecting lead into an infant is illegal, so why is it legal, recommended, and mandated to inject the even more neurotoxic mercury into an infant?
9. Because I want to believe that I can delegate my children’s health to others, and not have to take on that responsibility myself. Doctors know best, right? Wait; what if that’s not right? Especially considering today’s insurance-run world of medicine, where profits for the health insurance companies trump all… wealth versus health. Maybe I do have it in me to take charge of my children’s health. Maybe my grandma’s advice wasn’t just old-fashioned, but wise beyond belief.
- What if I focus on protecting, maintaining, and enhancing my children’s health by breastfeeding them for the first year or two or three of their lives, then feeding them nutrient-dense, organic foods?
- What if I keep my children mostly at home the first couple months of their lives, versus exposing them to germs at the grocery store, the airport, or the doctor’s office?
- What if I keep my children home when they’re sick and take care of them, keep them away from others who are sick, and teach them the importance of hand-washing – including at school, where time and supplies are often not allotted for that basic and sensible form of hygiene?
- What if I make sure my children get plenty of exercise and rest, avoid over-scheduling them, provide proper supervision at all ages, create a loving and supportive home environment, and reduce toxins to which they’re exposed at home, at school, and in the community as much as possible?
Wow, those ideas sound sensible, healthful, and best of all, not harmful… no lengthy lists of adverse reactions to this list, unlike with vaccines.
10. Because I want to believe that if our government did discover that the vaccines they had been approving, recommending, and mandating were causing great harm, responsible regulators and policymakers would immediately take action and halt our nation’s vaccine program until its safety and efficacy were proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. In the back of my mind, though, I keep thinking about things the parents of vaccine-injured children keep trying to get me to read about:
- The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, which removed liability from both those who manufacture vaccines and from those who administer vaccines;
- The tripling of the vaccine schedule after the 1986 Act was passed, a schedule which included inconceivable and devastating amounts of highly neurotoxic mercury, deadly in some cases (What? Mercury in shots for infants and children?);
- The CDC’s investigation of the sudden and skyrocketing rates of autism in Brick Township, NJ during the 1990s, an investigation that stopped abruptly with no explanation to the townspeople;
- The transcript from a meeting in Simpsonwood, GA in 2000, a CDC-sponsored meeting where evidence linking thimerosal in vaccines to autism and other childhood disorders was presented, but never reported to the public;
- Refusal of doctors and hospitals to report adverse reactions to vaccines to the national VAERS database (just talk to the parents of vaccine-injured children);
- Refusal of the CDC and HHS to monitor, investigate, and act upon or even take an interest in the adverse reactions to vaccines that do get reported to VAERS (talk to the parents who have filed reports);
- Wanted criminal Paul Thorsen, whose published studies our government cites in an attempt to prove no link exists between thimerosal and autism;
- The HHS’s former head ordering the media to censor and not give equal weight to anything that would call into question our nation’s vaccine program, and/or its link to the autism epidemic;
- How the FDA and CDC recommended (not required) the removal of neurotoxic thimerosal (i.e. mercury) from vaccines, only to later reverse their decision – and instead implement a cover-up of the vaccine damage done during the previous two decades, a cover-up which included recommending the thimerosal-containing flu vaccine for pregnant women, infants, and toddlers.
- How government and industry increased the levels of neurotoxic aluminum in vaccines while also touting the “trace” amounts of thimerosal in many vaccines as “safe,” thus permitting the synergistically super-neurotoxic effect of thimerosal and aluminum in vaccines;
- Regulatory agencies and industry not monitoring whether vaccine labels accurately reflect what’s in the vials.
I know there are more concerns to consider… I’ll have to talk to my friends who have vaccine-injured children (I have so many of them; is that strange?).
Are you having second thoughts after reading this? Check which vaccine exemptions exist in your state, and don’t be bullied into vaccinating your child by anyone. Remember, it’s your child, your choice. It is your decision to allow or not allow any medical procedure or treatment for your child. Also remember that if your child suffers a vaccine injury, you will be on your own. No person and no entity will be held liable for any harm that comes to your child from any vaccine product.
