Vaccine Epidemic

WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR GOVERNMENT TO ACKNOWLEDGE A LINK BETWEEN VACCINES AND AUTISM?

What if our government was compensating large numbers of children for vaccine injury who also have autism, but no one knew it...'til now?

Whatever you have planned for Tuesday, May 10, make a lunch date with USTREAM and watch a short and powerful press conference that will be taking place in Washington DC at noon. If the above USTREAM link does not work, type in www.USTREAM.tv/channel/EBCALA.

As people come to grips with the reality of an autism-vaccine link, they will ask, "How could this have happened?" Many answers are in Vaccine Epidemic. In particular, read:

  • Chapter 5: "The Right to Legal Redress" (Holland and Krakow)
  • Chapter 9: "Medical Ethics and Contemporary Medicine" (Sharav)
  • Chapter 17: "The Vaccine Bubble and the Pharmaceutical Industry" (Belkin)
  • Chapter 18: "The Role of Government and Media" (Taylor)

Scroll down for the media advisory for tomorrow's press conference.

You'll remember 5-10-11 as the date that changed the vaccine-autism debate forever.

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.

WHERE: United States Court of Claims, 717 Madison Place, NW, Washington, DC
WHEN: Tuesday, May 10 at 12:00 PM noon

GREAT PRESS FOR VACCINE EPIDEMIC!

We've been on a national radio tour... talking about Vaccine Epidemic on the air waves from NYC and DC to Tampa and Los Angeles and places in between! For more information on media appearances, click HERE.

Louise was interviewed by Governor David Paterson on The John Gambling Show on April 12 (click on the link to listen to the 10 minute podcast).

Mary squared off against Dr. Meg Fisher on NJ12 News on April 27. We're obtaining the video and will upload it to share very soon.

"I HAVE NO TIME TO READ!"

It's a lot to ask someone to read an entire book. We find it's much easier to ask people to read ten pages (the preface and introduction) and just one chapter. From there, most people keep reading! So send us an e-mail. Tell us a little about yourself and why you're interested in this subject. And we'll suggest the chapter for you.

PLEASE DONATE TO THE CENTER FOR PERSONAL RIGHTS

We're passionate about this work, but we can't do it without your support. Promoting a book is expensive. All donations to the non-profit Center for Personal Rights (CPR) are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

All proceeds from book sales go to CPR. Please ask your library and local bookstore to carry our book. Suggest Vaccine Epidemic for book clubs and college reading lists. And buy copies for family and friends. This topic will be in the news for a long time to come. Join us in asking for respectful engagement and open dialogue about developing a more responsible, measured, and just vaccination policy for us all.

We hope to see many of you soon.
