"The right to refuse is not about the measles shot, it's not about whether you're a bad parent, whether or not you get your kids a couple of these vaccines. It is about what is barreling down the track at us in a very near future. I would maintain that many of the very leftist or very liberal, . . rabid pro-vaccine people . . don't even understand that what is coming down on them. They may not want to have a shot that requires them to get something for obesity or depression . . . They may not have a right to refuse that."
"Not only will it become about vaccines. When they first started mandating shots for health care workers about three years ago, . . . I said, where is this going to stop? They require someone to be injected with a substance against their will. . . It's something that can cause them serious harm, in some cases even cause them to die. And the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in the last two years, has paid out more compensation for people injured by the flu shot than for any other vaccine, and I think it's because they're requiring so many people to have it.
"So where are we going to stop with that? Is it going to be all the vaccines? .
I wrote about Dr. Tenpenny in January when the country of Australia was threatening to deny her a visa because she was going to be speaking on vaccine safety in that country.
With this aim in mind, GreenMedInfo.com has painstakingly collected over 300 pages of study abstracts culled directly from the National Library of Medicine's pubmed.gov bibliographic database on the wide-ranging adverse health effects linked to vaccines in the today's schedule (over 200 distinct adverse effects, including death), as well as numerous studies related to vaccine contamination, and vaccine failure in highly vaccine compliant populations.
We know there is plenty of science that challenges the safety claims of CDC officials/mainstream medicine. GreenMedInfo cites the science that's being ignored.The award-winning documentary, The Greater Good, has done the same.
This research is out there-in plain sight, yet no one is talking about it. The fraudulent claim that all the science says vaccines are safe, vaccines save lives needs to be exposed for the lie that it is.
The backlash, much of it from people who fear unvaccinated children could infect their own kids, has been so severe that dozens of anti-vaccine parents contacted by The Associated Press were afraid to speak out. But a handful of mothers agreed to discuss their thinking. . . .The CDC says years of testing are required before a vaccine is approved, and the shots are continually monitored for safety and effectiveness. . . .
The CDC has phased out a mercury-containing preservative in vaccines as a precautionary measure, and the agency says vaccines containing aluminum pose extremely low risk to infants. Federal officials also say GMOs in foods are safe, as are pesticides if used according to labels.
Here is CBS pretending to be fair and balanced. This story was also published by a number of leading newspapers in the U.S. CBS is giving time to exempting parents who are actually well-educated and well-informed on vaccines.
CBS however gives the last word to the CDC as if their claims are unassailable. No one is supposed to question pronouncements from the agency that approves, recommends and vigorously promotes vaccines-and has hundreds of employees with conflict-of-interest waivers because of their direct financial ties to the industry they're overseeing.
CBS says there's no mercury in vaccines anymore and we all know that's not true. The CDC assures us that injecting aluminum into humans can't hurt them either. (And BTW, CBS adds an endorsement for the safety of GMOs and pesticides.)
I tried to post comments but no matter what network or email address I used, I was unable to. I can see why Sharyl Attkisson left this network.
Becky: "Within hours of him receiving his vaccines he had pretty significant reactions which ended up really causing a lot of immune system dysfunction for a couple of years actually. During that time he lost skills and basically stopped developing, and at two years, nine months, he was diagnosed with autism. At that time I had already given birth to another son and after going through what we went through with our first one, we were very careful and we actually stopped vaccinating him because of what happened to our first son. Because for us, it's not the choice between measles and not getting measles; it's a choice between brain inflammation that caused permanent damage-and that risk is so great and that injury is so dire that we decided not to do it for our younger son. And basically I've spent the last fifteen years working on vaccine safety, parental choice and asking the government, please try to identify risk factors for children that might . . . be susceptible to injury so we can know for everyone, who is safe and who isn't."
When she was asked which vaccines affected her son son, Becky said they were the Hepatitis B at nine months and the MMR at twelve months.
Becky: "And I just spent the last eight years working on a documentary called Trace Amounts, and people can go to TraceAmounts.com and find out more."
Newsman David Nazar talked about what autism is in the next segment. "Autism is a far-reaching neuro-developmental disorder that affects millions of children in the U.S.
Becky, like always, was poised, reasonable, knowledgeable and thought provoking. Why hasn't anyone looked at the individuals who've been compensated for vaccine injury to see what risk factors they share? Why is there no way to identify children who might be susceptible to vaccine injury?
As usual autism was brought up and marginalized. An expert was quoted denying any link to vaccines.
It is clear that this kind of discussion will continue until we really get worried about what autism is doing to our children and what it's going to cost this country. The clip of Nazar's sister, Dr. Biesman was all about autism. I would seriously like to ask her why the focus is always on meeting the needs of children with autism. Why are experts doing nothing to address the needs of middle-aged and elderly people with autism? Since so many officials and experts still believe that there's been no real increase in autism, then where are the adults? And if there's been a real increase, why aren't we moving mountains to find out the cause?
And I'd like to ask CA State Senator Ben Allen to look into the California State Senate Select Committee on Autism. What they have to say is really, really scary.
2009, President pro Tem of the California State Senate Darrell Steinberg announced the establishment of the Senate Select Committee on Autism (ASD). Steinberg said that their intention is to make autism a "public health priority." Rick Rollens of the MIND INSTITUTE spoke: "Autism is epidemic in this state as it is throughout the country." "Autism population is skewed dramatically toward young children." "Eight-four percent of the autism population is under the age of 21." "More six and seven year olds in the system than all the adults with autism combined." We were given the mindboggling numbers: There were "14,000 students with autism a decade ago" in California, and "46,000 students today, and growing."
The Maine Department of Health and Human Services will pay a former employee $142,500 as settlement of a federal whistleblower lawsuit.
Sharon Leahy-Lind, once a division director for the Maine Center for Disease Control, sued DHHS and her bosses at the after she said she was harassed and retaliated against for refusing to shred public documents.
What does this tell us about ethics at the CDC? There must be lots of examples of corruption and cover-up.
Monday 10pm: Eyewitness News investigates concerns over harmful reactions to vaccines in some pets.
“ABC I-Team investigates claims of adverse reactions, dangerous side effects from pet vaccines, heartbroken dog owners left with thousands in vet bills. . . .
“Are those shots making your pet sick?”
“Because there’s so much fear involved and there’s so much money involved.”
“What you need to know to keep your pet safe.”
It should be pointed out that ABC 7 did cover the Alex Spourdalakis’ story in December 2014.
While they talk about regression, the vaccine controversy wasn't discussed.
