Thank you Laura! I can’t understand how anyone can support making medical procedures mandatory. It’s the most basic of all human rights to control our own bodies. The same people who have fits over sharia law requiring women to wear burqhas think governments should take control of personal medical choices. I don’t think it should be about whether it “causes” (more likely triggers or worsens) autism. First because that, proven or not, is a diversion from the fundamental issue of whether human beings have the right to self determination and bodily integrity. As an Asperger on the autism spectrum and a person with physical disabilities, I see the deeper issue as more significant and the way the pro-vaccine crowd is using the autistic community. We are not monsters to be feared or our conditions used as a specter to frighten people away from vaccines. Nor should we be pawns to manipulate public opinion on the issue. Our right to personal dignity and respect is equal to, and commensurate with everyone’s rights to the same. The problem is not autism it’s fascism. Even if vaccines truly caused no demonstrable harm the principle of bodily integrity remains a serious issue. But the evidence is widely available showing that they do cause harm in many cases. Why else would the corporations insiston immunity from llawsuits?
Although this video does not focus on scientific proof of vaccines’ connections to autism, it gives an excellent run down of exactly how the legal system works when it comes to vaccine injuries. Transparency? Hardly. One of the most damning facts of this video, in light of the Department of Health and Human Services consideration of the National Adult Immunization Plan (which sets the stage for mandatory vaccines), is that the Department of HHS owns patents on vaccines and makes money when they are distributed. How much deeper can the conflict of interest go? Watch and learn, then you decide if you’d like to encourage Rebecca Fish to exercise her conscience during this last day of public comment on the NAIP. Rebecca.Fish@hhs.gov
