Americans are Talking About Vaccines

How many mothers do not witness a child’s vaccine reaction and never understand why their children whose physical, mental and emotional health suddenly regressed after vaccination? How many of those children are filling the special education classrooms, doctors’ offices, mental health facilities, and prisons in America?

What happened to my healthy son after vaccination in 1980 sent me on a journey to learn more and find out why doctors are not talking about vaccine risks, and why a commercial product that can brain damage and kill people is being mandated. In part, I was driven by disappointment in myself. As a college educated woman, who had come from a family of doctors and nurses, and had worked as a writer at a teaching hospital before I became a mom. Why did I irrationally assume that vaccines were 100% safe and effective? Why had I blindly trusted a doctor instead of examining vaccination with the same due diligence that I had researched nutrition and toxic exposures during pregnancy and had taken prepared childbirth classes to weigh the merits of an epidural versus natural childbirth, and breastfeeding versus bottle-feeding?

Some of my questions were answered during the two years of research that medical historian Harris Coulter and I conducted when I learned that pertussis vaccine contains lethal pertussis toxin and endotoxin, as well as aluminum and mercury which can make the blood-brain barrier more permeable. That research culminated in the publishing of our 1985 book DPT: A Shot in the Dark. Harris and I were the first to report an association between vaccine-induced brain inflammation and a spectrum of brain dysfunction that doctors give labels like seizures, learning disability, ADHD and autism.

But it would take another 25 years of research and interfacing with politicians and serving on committees with doctors and industry, government and medical trade to answer the rest of my questions. In 1982, when I joined with parents of DPT vaccine injured children and co-founded the non-profit charity that is today known as the National Vaccine Information Center, the number of Americans questioning the safety of vaccines was so tiny it could not even be measured in public opinion polls.

Three decades later, national polls reveal that the majority of parents in America say the number one child health concern they have is about the safety of vaccines. And that is because in the 21st century, everybody knows somebody who was healthy, got vaccinated, and was never healthy again. People are talking about it, especially mothers taking their children to pediatricians… because we are the ones who carry our babies inside us for nine months, and give birth, and feed and nurture them through infancy, and are responsible for their health. We are the ones who usually quit work and stay home and care for them when they are never well anymore.

Mothers are asking their doctors logical questions about vaccination, and when their doctors react to those questions with irrational rage or cold refusal to provide medical care if one or more vaccines are declined, it becomes obvious that there is something very wrong with doctors using threats to push and enforce use of a pharmaceutical product. The militarization of vaccine policy in the United States is eroding the trust that used to exist between the people and their doctors. That broken trust is being replaced by fear.

    Way to go, mothers!! Stay strong and keep questioning!! We need answers not confusion and rage from doctors! Those doctors should be ashamed of themselves for not seeking out the true risks and dangers and for misleading families. “Do no harm?” That is a joke. So sorry to anyone who has a vaccine-injured child. God bless you and your families. You deserve love not shame.

    Jane, just research “DTaP scream”, it really doesn’t seem to be considered “much safer” by the victims or their families.

    Jane, doctors consider lots of things – few if any of them are even remotely true.

    Actually, the DTaP probably is safer than the DTwP but I fail to see how that is some sort of an endorsement. At any rate, both vaccines are and were completely useless. Respiratory infections (both upper and lower) a dime a dozen these days so the vaccine is a waste of time and money – not to mention being dangerous.

    Every single last one of them should be banned.

    Have you researched the DTaP? Because the information you have posted refers to the DTwP which hasn’t been in use in many years. The acellular pertussis vaccine is considered much safer than the whole cell vaccine

    My son was another DPT casualty of 1981, the following year after your son’s injury. Back then, I visited almost all the major hospitals in the Philadelphia.Surely when they learned his my son suffered as well as his recent diagnosis if “autism”, they would grant a written exemption.I was so wrong.Not only would they not grant an exemption from future vaccines, the physicians insisted that he catch up with the rest of the vaccines.They basically called me a “nervous mother” who was displaying irrational fears towards vaccinations.
    I went with my intuitive voice and refused to further vaccinate. However, my now 35 year old son continues to suffer due to years of big pharma drugs which I was told would help with agitation and insomnia.This caused further mental and physical regression.
    Please parents, educate yourself before it’s too late. ?

        Les, I would love me to learn more about the 8 necessary plant sugars. My son had the MMR when he was 8 months. He is now 6. He had a reaction similar to GuillinBarre syndrome yet his pediatric neurologist from university of Michigan, Geneticist, and pediatrician could not find anything. It has been a struggle. All of the doctors, specialists, Physical, occupational, speech therapy. Getting the right care. Aside from the struggles to help my son, as a parent I feel guilty that I did this to him as well as robbed of a “normal” childhood for him. Michigan now requires parents to sit through a lecture on why we should vaccinate in order for a nurse to sign off on a form which allows our child to attend school. Without it, he would be denied his education. I just want help for him.
