Charleston (SC) Post and Courier

The South Carolina Medicaid agency plans to ask the Legislature for $30 million to comply with a new federal autism rule next year, but the department is less concerned about getting the money than finding enough autism specialists to treat the thousands of children who will become newly eligible for services.

"The primary issue is a capacity issue," said Pete Liggett, Medicaid's deputy director for long term and behavioral health. "There's simply not enough board-certified behavior analysts in the state or in the country."

It's state and local stories like this that are the proof that autism is an epidemic of recent origin.  (The national news never covers the urgent needs of autistic children on waiting lists in states all over the country.)  These numbers are shocking.  Too bad no one asked where all these kids are coming from.

More of the mystery of autism....Autism costs South Carolina millions of dollars. 

Less than half the kids who need therapists will have any. 

So what did S.C. do for autistic children in the past?

How many other kids with autism are there--ones who don't get Medicaid?

Have thousands of the disabled in that state simply withered on waiting lists?

If S.C. can't meet the needs of children with autism, what are they doing for adults?

This is a scary omen for the future.  Imagine what will happen when these same children age out of school with nowhere to go.  And how in the world will the state provide lifetime care for all of them as adults?


The vaccine debate is as ripe as ever in the parenting world. It seems that on almost a daily basis, I hear the pros and cons of vaccination with both pro-vaccine and anti-vaccine movements attempting to tell parents what they should or should not be doing. But who is right? Are anti-vaccine families putting their child at risk for unnecessary harm, or are pro-vaccine families doing the same by inviting a vaccine reaction?. . .

Within a few minutes of this article appearing on Google news, Ken Reibel had his venomous slam against parents posted.  (I just posted four comments.)

 Figures released Thursday suggest the number of autism cases in the state is up dramatically.
The 2014 Pennsylvania Autism Census estimates that more than 55,000 children and adults diagnosed with autism, are receiving services in the state. That's almost triple the number identified in 2009.

The survey by autism centers at Penn State Hershey, Western Psychiatric and Drexel University finds that adults receiving services were the fastest growing group in Pennsylvania. That trend is expected to continue.

The three autism centers are partners in ASERT-- The Autism Services, Education Resources and Training Collaborative,funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfa

In five years, the autism numbers in PA have tripled.

Obviously they don't know that, according to federal health officials, it's all just "better diagnosing" of a disorder that's always been around.

Maybe PA docs are really the best at BETTER DIAGNOSING.

(Everyone please notice the photo of the smiling kids and an autism puzzle ribbon.)  Autism isn't such a bad thing.   Those kids look happy!)


And what will you do when they keep on COMING AND COMING AND COMING?

Washington Post

NAIROBI, Kenya - A row between the Catholic Church and the government over a tetanus vaccine aimed at women in their childbearing years has clergy urging people to shun the injection, saying it's a stealth population-control ploy.

On Tuesday (Nov.11), the bishops appearing before the parliamentary health committee said they had tested the vaccine privately and were shocked to find it was laced with a birth control hormone called beta human chorionic gonadotropin.

"We are calling on all Kenyans to avoid the tetanus vaccination campaign because we are convinced it is indeed a disguised population control program," said Bishop Paul Kariuki, chairman of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops' health committee.

This story has been out on blogs........but I'm shocked to see it in THE WASHINGTON POST!

From "Contraceptive vaccines" by Aiken et al:

"Three major approaches to contraceptive vaccine development are being pursued at the present time. The most advanced approach, which has already reached the stage of phase 2 clinical trials, involves the induction of immunity against human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG). Vaccines are being engineered based on conjugates incorporating tetanus or diptheria toxoid linked to a variety of hCG-based peptides centred on the β-subunit of this molecule. Clinical trials have revealed that such preparations are capable of stimulating the production of anti-hCG antibodies. However, the long term consequences of such immunity in terms of safety or efficacy are, as yet, unknown...."

Children with congenital heart disease more like ly to be autistic.
