On Wednesday we attended a rally in Washington, D.C., headed by celebrities Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey urging the government and the vaccine industry to “green our vaccines.” Most people aren’t aware that vaccines contain various toxic ingredients — aluminum, formaldehyde, ether, and some still contain mercury, contrary to what you may have heard. It should be more then obvious to anyone (that is unless you work at the CDC) that toxins have no place in things we inject into our babies. Besides requesting a “greening of vaccines” Jim and Jenny’s message was simple, “Too many, Too soon”.
Reflect on this for a moment: Autism was 1 in 10,000 in 1983; it’s 1 in 150 in 2008. In 1983 children received 10 vaccines before school age. Today, it is an astounding 36 doses of various vaccines in the same time frame. Autism rates have risen simultaneously as the vaccine schedule has grown.
Vaccines have never been tested in combination. Some children are given an alarming eight shots at one time. Babies should never be vaccinated while they are sick — an all-too-common practice which has led many parents to report their child never being the same again after receiving shots while ill. The CDC provides a recommended list of vaccines, not a mandatory list. It is imperative that parents’ educate themselves on what exactly the diseases are that are being “recommended” for their child to be vaccinated against. Parents need to start making fully informed decisions when it comes to vaccines. The American Academy of Pediatrics has done nothing to address the autism epidemic. It’s done nothing to quell growing parental fears of what makes a child suddenly become autistic after receiving multiple vaccines. The AAP along with the CDC declined invitations to address the concerns of rally goers. Frankly, our community has lost faith in them. Over 8, 000 people attended the rally to lend a voice over concerns of toxins in vaccines. Every state in the union was represented along with Canada, Mexico, and the Philippines. What was so very disappointing was the poor media coverage this rally received by the mainstream media.
Our politicians need to be held accountable to us and our children. Any person holding office or running for public office should know our children are being damaged from toxic vaccines and they had better be willing to craft and support legislation that works to correct this problem and spare future generations from harm. In addition, they need to be prepared to create legislation that secures the funding needed to support the hordes of soon-to-be adults that will need lifelong care because they have been rendered autistic and unable to care for themselves. Robert Kennedy Jr. informed the crowd that the Iraq war is projected to cost us 3 trillion dollars. Yet, caring for all these autistic people will make that figure look small in comparison.
Our most precious commodity — our children — are literally being destroyed by government controlled propaganda and a profit driven medical establishment.
