Investigators and Families of Vaccine-Injured Children to Unveil Report Detailing Clear Vaccine-Autism Link Based on Government’s Own Data Report Demands Immediate Congressional Action

Directors of the Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy (EBCALA), parents and vaccine-injured children will hold a press conference on the steps of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (717 Madison Place, NW in Washington, DC) on Tuesday, May 10 at 12:00 PM to unveil an investigation linking vaccine injury to autism.  For over 20 years, the federal government has publicly denied a vaccine-autism link, while at the same time its Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has been awarding damages for vaccine injury to children with brain damage, seizures and autism.  This investigation, based on public, verifiable government data, breaks new ground in the controversial vaccine-autism debate.

The investigation found that a substantial number of children compensated for vaccine injury also have autism.  The government has asserted that it “does not track” autism among the vaccine-injured.  Based on this preliminary investigation, the evidence suggests that autism is at least three times more prevalent among vaccine-injured children than among children in the general population.

The federal government has called autism a “national health emergency,” conservatively affecting 1 in 110 children and costing the country billions of dollars each year.

Because almost all children in the United States are required by law to receive between 30-45 vaccines in order to attend public school, it is crucial that the VICP decide cases with justice and transparency.

EBCALA and the families of the vaccine-injured call on Congress to investigate the VICP, the only forum in which parents may bring claims of vaccine injury on behalf of their children.

(Washington, D.C.) Russ and Robalee Bruesewitz, parents of Hannah Bruesewitz, along with vaccine safety and autism leaders Mary Holland, Esq. and Louise Kuo Habakus will hold a press conference on Thursday, March 3, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. They will denounce the Court’s ruling last week in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth. Vaccine-injured children are now denied the right to sue for defectively designed vaccines in civil court.

The Supreme Court’s decision will erode public confidence in childhood vaccines. On behalf of over 100,000 concerned citizens, advocates, and professionals, these leaders urgently call for vaccine policy reform.

Vaccine Epidemic


Announcing… Vaccine Epidemic!

Louise Kuo Habakus, writer and analyst, and Mary Holland, research scholar at New York University School of Law, in conjunction with the Center for Personal Rights, Inc., a non-profit think tank and advocacy organization, present Vaccine Epidemic: How Corporate Greed, Biased Science, and Coercive Government Threaten Our Human Rights, Our Health, and Our Children.

Reviewed by Dr. Bernadine Healy

“There are unanswered questions about vaccine safety. We need studies on vaccinated populations based on various schedules and doses as well as individual patient susceptibilities that we are continuing to learn about. No one should be threatened by the pursuit of this knowledge. Vaccine policy should be the subject of frank and open debate, with no tolerance for bullying. There are no sides—only people concerned for the well-being of our children.”

—Bernadine Healy, M.D., former director, National Institutes of Health (NIH), and current health editor, U.S. News & World Report

Vaccine Epidemic Brings You the Real Story about Dr. Andrew Wakefield and the State of Vaccine Safety Science If you are scratching your head about the British Medical Journal’s big story last week and the extraordinary treatment that Dr. Andrew Wakefield has been receiving in the mainstream press, including CNN, Fox News, the New York Times, and the Washington Post, you are not alone. Vaccine Epidemic explains what’s really going on and why the global vaccine establishment is so hopping mad.

Notably:

• NYU research scholar Mary Holland answers the question “Who is Dr. Andrew Wakefield?” with a succinct review of the relevant events and the charges against him, and the reasons they do not stand up. Learn how Dr. Wakefield is the latest in a long line of dissidents, challenging scientific orthodoxy and being punished because his views profoundly threaten conventional wisdom.

• Epidemiologist Dr. Carol Stott and Dr. Wakefield present “A Call for More Research,” an excellent summary of the state of vaccine safety science today. The authors review new peer-reviewed research and meta analyses that raise grave concerns about the wisdom of current U.S. vaccination policy. Learn information that the government and the media do not want to you to hear about the inadequacy of vaccine safety science—in the words of the Institute of Medicine and other venerable sources.

• Dr. Wakefield, in his own words and uninterrupted by rude journalists and paid industry spokespeople with an agenda tells his own story in “The Suppression of Science.” He is not who you may have heard. For example, he is not anti-vaccine—he encouraged parents to vaccinate against measles, mumps and rubella using separate shots; it was the British government who took away that option, leading to a drop in MMR vaccination rates. Learn more of the facts in this insightful and personal chapter.

These chapters, and 23 others, connect the dots about this long-standing controversy that will not go away. Vaccine Epidemic explains how people concerned about many individual topics in this debate including:

• conflicts of interest and undue influence of the pharmaceutical industry

• increased compulsory vaccination for day care, secondary school, and college admission, employment, and immigration

• mandated anthrax and other vaccinations required by the military

• biochemistry of injected mercury and thimerosal, especially in babies

• deaths and devastating injury after human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination (Gardasil and Cervarix) for young girls and boys

• hepatitis B vaccination for newborns

• swine flu “pandemic” of 2010

• the myth of herd immunity, including persistent outbreaks among the vaccinated

• allegations of “medical neglect” and forced child removal involving vaccination

• thousands of families who witnessed their children’s regression into autism after vaccination, and more…

… are all asking similar questions and coming up against the same limitations of the state of the science. You will then understand why established vaccine interests feel compelled to make big news about an old story and relaunch an unprecedented character assassination of a courageous man who has already paid the highest professional price possible by telling this inconvenient truth: we need more science.

Stay tuned and you’ll hear more. Vaccine Epidemic tells you what the big story is really about.

Groundbreaking Handbook on Vaccination Choice

Nearly all Americans receive vaccines. The federal government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently recommends 70 doses of sixteen different vaccines between birth and age eighteen, and all fifty states mandate between 30 and 45 doses of vaccines for admission to day care and school.

Public health officials state that vaccines are safe and effective, but the truth is far more complicated. Vaccination is a serious medical intervention that always carries the potential to injure and cause death as well as to prevent disease. Coercive vaccination policies deprive people of free and informed consent—the hallmark of ethical medicine. National polls show that Americans are increasingly concerned about vaccine safety and the right to make individual, informed choices together with their healthcare practitioners. Vaccine Epidemic focuses on the searing debate surrounding individual and parental vaccination choice in the United States.

Louise Kuo Habakus and Mary Holland edit and introduce a diverse array of interrelated topics concerning the explosive vaccine controversy, including:

• The human right to vaccination choice

• The ethics and constitutionality of vaccination mandates

• Personal narratives of parents, children, and soldiers who have suffered vaccine injury

• Vaccine safety science and evidence-based medicine

• Corrupting conflicts of interest in the national vaccine program

What should parents do? A review of eight advice books on vaccines that span the gamut

Featuring more than twenty experts from the fields of ethics, law, science, medicine, business, and history, Vaccine Epidemic urgently calls for reform. It is the essential handbook for the vaccination choice movement and required reading for all people contemplating vaccination for themselves and their children.

STOP House Bill 294


It is not enough that our children get 48 doses of 14 vaccines before the age of six. Industry and government want to inject more and more into our children in the name of health, but is our children’s health getting any better and is it really protecting them?

In all of the reported outbreaks in history, and most recently the mumps outbreak in New York, the majority of cases happened in previously vaccinated people.

The following Delegates, Nathan-Pulliam, Benson, Costa, Gutierrez, Howard, Hubbard, Jones, Lee, Montgomery, Pena-Melnyk, Reznik, and V. Turner are sponsoring a Maryland House Bill 294 requiring the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s regulations regarding immunizations to include the requirement that the parent or legal guardian of a child born on or after January 1, 1990, entering the seventh grade or the equivalent in this State or transferring into a school in this State at the seventh grade or higher level on or after September 1, 2010, to have specified immunizations administered to the child.

The conventional mantra is that vaccines have eradicated disease. This simply is not true. You will see that all diseases were on a decline before the vaccine was introduced. View Here

Please CONTACT your representative and ask them NOT to support this bill because it is against your personal liberties and human rights.

Instead ask them to sponsor a bill for conscientious exemption to vaccinations.

Hearing is set for March 3, 2010. If you are able to testify or protest this bill please bring a sign and/or photo of your child.
