|Vaccine Rights Rally Draws Thousands|
A 3,000-strong march and rally sponsored by Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), Generation Rescue, Healing Every Autistic Life Foundation (HEAL), and Moms Against Mercury demanded legislative action on issues surrounding mandatory vaccinations. The protest specifically addressed toxic substances in vaccines, the mandatory vaccination schedule, and the restricted statute of limitations, which makes it difficult for many children who allegedly have vaccine-induced autism to file for assistance from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
Families came from all 50 states to˙make their voices heard. Many of their lives changed forever on the day they submitted their infants or toddlers to the same forced dosage of vaccinations that a forty-year-old man receives. Representatives from Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, and Guam were also present to testify to the ruinous side effects of too many forced vaccinations given before a child's body can adequately cope.
Renowned mercury researcher Boyd E. Haley Ph.D., pediatrician Dr. Jay Gordon, activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (who wrote the groundbreaking article "Deadly Immunity"), and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) spoke at the Green Our Vaccines rally, headlined by celebrities Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy, mother of an autistic child.
The speakers emphasized that they were not anti-vaccine as much as they were against the medications' toxicity and the lack of individual choice to object to the inoculations. Dr. Gordon called attention to a major problem for those who oppose toxic vaccines the mainstream media's biased coverage. He said that the media's attempt to frame parents' rights advocates as anti-vaccine is a trick that allows the media to get rid of the advocates more easily.
Dr. Boyd Haley testified to the "sad fact that it wasn't the American Medical Association or the American Society of Psychiatrists or even other medical associations that got [him] involved." Instead, perhaps demonstrating that the hand that rocks the cradle is still the hand that rules the world, it was parents of autistic children who initiated this movement and involved Dr. Haley.
A brief look at the active ingredient list of most common vaccines could startle anyone concerned for our nation's children. The chemical cocktail called Varivax, a chickenpox vaccine, contains phosphate, sucrose, monosodium glutamate (MSG), processed gelatin, fetal bovine serum, guinea pig embryo cells, albumin from human blood, and human diploid cells from aborted fetal tissue. Another repeat toxic offender is formaldehyde, which is listed with aluminum phosphate, ammonium sulfate, thimerosal (a mercury compound), and washed sheep RBCs on the ingredient list for the diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus vaccine, DPT.
Professor Haley commented on the dangers of aluminum. He claimed that while the daily toxic limit for aluminum intake is 50 micrograms, the amount of aluminum in a vaccine can be over 250 micrograms. Additionally, Dr. Waldman pointed out that the nonsensical vaccination schedule often requires doctor's offices to inject a ten-pound baby with up to ten doses of vaccinations on the same day.
Make sure to become informed on the vaccination schedule in your area and how to waive your child's participation. Seize your right as a parent to determine what is best for your child. Our children are too precious to sacrifice to big government's method of mommying.
