Emotions have run very high this past week. Countless parents in the autism community were cautiously excited that your festival would include a film that presented the truth about what an unchecked, unsafe vaccine schedule is doing to our children.
Now it seems that even you have given in to forces desperate to censor what "Vaxxed" has to say.
As more and more of our children fall victim to the nightmare of autism, you are now complicit in the cover-up. Our health officials give us an ever-increasing rate of disabled children, all the while calling it "better diagnosing."
Doctors are mystified every time a healthy, normally developing toddler stops talking, develops seizures, and descends into autism. The one thing they're sure of is that the round of vaccines the child just received wasn't the cause, and they have lots of industry-connected studies to prove it.
Half a million young adults with autism will be aging out of our schools in the next 10 years with nowhere to go. There are no services for them because we have never had a significant population of autistic adults before. The parents of these children are desperate about their future. Still the government refuses to recognize the problem. No U.S. health official has ever called autism a "crisis," despite the fact that it now affects two percent of children, with no known cause, prevention, or cure.
You and others may try to cover up the truth about what's happening, but it won't make these children disappear. And when autism finally becomes an economic disaster for our county as we have to support and care for the victims of this epidemic, you will be among those remembered for refusing to tell the truth.
