Vaccine Court Awards Millions to Two Children With Autism01/14/2013 9:43 am
The federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, better known as "vaccine court," has just awarded millions of dollars to two children with autism for "pain and suffering" and lifelong care of their injuries, which together could cost tens of millions of dollars.
The government did not admit that vaccines caused autism, at least in one of the children. Both cases were "unpublished," meaning information is limited, and access to medical records and other exhibits is blocked. Much of the information presented here comes from documents found at the vaccine court website.

Witnesses for Petitioners Are Often Tough to FindNovember 29, 2004
The vaccine court can be a hostile place not only for petitioners but for their expert witnesses too.
Take the case of Dr. Derek Smith. A neurologist and assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, Smith had been retained to testify for people with transverse myelitis, a potentially paralyzing neurological disorder.
Smith said he was "highly confident" that the tetanus vaccine could trigger the ailment in certain vulnerable individuals. Officials with the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program strongly disagreed.
Petitioners in vaccine court can have a tough time finding top experts, in part because many doctors are reluctant to say vaccines can cause harm. But Smith had no such qualms.
"He was so smart," said Sylvia Chin-Caplan, a lawyer for dozens of victims of the neurological ailment. "I had somebody who had academic credentials, who did research and had a clinical practice," she said. "Those are the best people you can get."
Then Smith quit.
According to court papers and interviews, Smith decided to bail out after complaints were lodged with his superiors by three other experts with a long history of testifying for the government in vaccine court.

Court Fines Doctor Who Did Not Tell Patient Hepatitis B Vaccine Causes Multiple SclerosisJanuary 8, 2013
A French Court has fined a doctor 3000 Euros for failing to inform a patient of all side effects of a vaccination. This included the risk of multiple sclerosis from the Hepatitis B vaccine.
This is an important decision which reinforces in law the doctor’s obligation to obtain informed consent from a patient.

Police Take Newborn After Mother Refuses Hep B Vaccination; Lawsuit and Trial FollowsWednesday, January 2, 2013
Kenny Valenzuela, Contributor
The state has granted powers to individuals though the use of titles, uniforms and badges; in this instance both ‘social worker’ and ‘police officer’ are the titles used to seize custody of Jodi Ferris’s newborn child after she questioned the hospitals ‘safety plan’. Once in the custody of the state the baby was injected with a Hepatitis B vaccination and the mother was evicted from the hospital and forced to stay in the parking lot, only permitted to return every three hours to breast feed her newborn daughter.
The next morning the court system determined this was a violation of Constitutional laws and the baby was immediately returned to the custody of her parents with no mention of the possible damage done to her immune system after receiving this toxic concoction.

Judge—Case of Seized Newborn May Now ProceedDecember 10, 2012
When Jodi Ferris arrived at Hershey Medical Center after giving birth in an ambulance, the last thing she and her husband, Scott, expected was to lose custody of their newborn daughter, forcing them to spend the first night of their daughter’s life sleeping in their car in the parking lot across the street.
But that is exactly what happened after Jodi—like any concerned mom—apparently asked hospital staff too many questions about the care her baby daughter was receiving.

Government tyranny vs parental rights in the UK

Women, Vaccines & Bodily IntegrityPosted: 1/24/2013 12:17:27 AM
By Barbara Loe Fisher
2013 was only a few days old when I saw a photo of 61-year old Ethel Hoover. . veteran hospital nurse, who had only missed 4 or 5 days of work in 22 years, she was fired from her job for declining to get a flu shot.
Defending Freedom of Conscience
On her last day of work, she wore black. In the photo, she was standing straight, looking directly into the camera, unafraid, signaling strong ownership of the principled choice she made in defense of autonomy,  freedom of conscience   and protection of bodily integrity. 
“This is my body,” she said. “I have a right to refuse the flu vaccine.” 
Punishment: No Shots, No Job
The Methodist-founded Indiana University Health Goshen Hospital rejected the medical and religious exemptions Ethel filed so they could punish her for obeying her conscience and choosing to stay healthy another way. Refusing to respect her beliefs or superior health and work attendance record, they cited the “no shots, no job” vaccine mandates being pushed by public health officials and Pharma-funded medical trade groups  as a reason to fire her.

Flu Vaccine Exemptions Denied Hospital Fires NurseJan 11, 2013
Eight employees, including at least three veteran nurses, have been fired by Goshen Hospital, in Goshen, Indiana, for refusing the flu vaccine. A religious exemption is available, but was denied because these employees did not meet the criteria for religious protection established by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. "What gives the EEOC the authority to define what constitutes an acceptable religious belief?" asks Jane M. Orient, M.D., executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS). AAPS opposes vaccine mandates, believing that patients and healthcare workers have the right to refuse medical treatment.

MNA/NNU Opposes Hospital Industry Policies to Mandate Masking of Healthy Nurses and Staff As Part of Flu Prevention ProgramCANTON, Mass., Dec. 20, 2012
There is no medical justification for these policies, which are designed to bully nurses and staff to take the flu vaccine regardless of nurses' medical and/or personal concerns
BMC nurse bullied into taking vaccine by this policy has reaction that places her in ICU
Hospitals are using this coercive tactic to boost flu vaccination rates to avoid losing Medicare funding instead of implementing truly effective prevention strategies, including safe RN staffing
CANTON, Mass., Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the state prepares for the upcoming influenza season, the Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA), the state's largest union of registered nurses and health professionals, strongly opposes a new policy being implemented by a number of hospital and health care employers calling for mandatory masking of health care workers as a component of a flu prevention program, and threatens to fire nurses who don't wear the mask throughout the hospital all day.
"Rather than focus on systems and policies that actually prevent flu transmission, many institutions are now focused on setting a misguided and ineffective policy which mandates that healthy health care workers wear a mask for eight to twelve hours while on duty if unvaccinated," according to a position statement approved today by the MNA/NNU Board of Directors. "We encourage nurses to become educated on the risks and benefits of the influenza vaccine and decide whether to vaccinate, but there is no medical evidence that the masking of nurses or healthy workers prevents the transmission of influenza."

Vt. vaccine exemption form relaxed after criticismNovember 30,2012
MONTPELIER — The Vermont Health Department has softened a rule affecting parents who want to skip vaccinations for their children, after some of those parents complained that asking them to sign a form talking about the risks and benefits of the shots amounted to unconstitutional “compelled speech,” a health official told lawmakers Thursday.
Deputy Health Commissioner Tracy Dolan said an earlier draft required parents seeking an exemption from vaccinations to sign a form acknowledging that they “understand that failure to complete the schedule (of shots) increases the risk to the person and others.”
Parents now will only be required to say they have read the department’s educational materials on vaccines, Dolan told the Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules. They will have to sign a form each year that says: “I have reviewed and understand the Required Parent Education Information developed by the Vermont Department of Health.”
Committee members voted to accept the department’s revised rules after the panel’s chairman, Rep. Richard Marek, a Newfane Democrat and lawyer, said he believed the revisions described by Dolan addressed the constitutional concerns.
The joint committee, made up of House and Senate members, reviews executive agency rules to be sure they comply with the intent of laws passed by the Legislature. If the committee objects to a rule, the executive agency can implement it anyway, but the committee objection would give anyone suing the state over the rule a stronger leg to stand on in court.

Private school vaccine opt-outs rise13 September 2012, Hannah Dreier, Associated Press
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Parents who send their children to private schools in California are much more likely to opt out of immunizations than their public school counterparts, an Associated Press analysis has found, and not even the recent re-emergence of whooping cough has halted the downward trajectory of vaccinations among these students.
The state surveys all schools with at least 10 kindergartners to determine how many have all the recommended immunizations. The AP analyzed that data and found the percentage of children in private schools who forego some or all vaccinations is more than two times greater than in public schools.

The Latest Sneak Attacks in a Coordinated Effort to Eliminate Vaccine Exemptions11 September 2012 by Dr. Mercola
The featured article in the latest newsletter from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) gets straight to the point with its headline:1 Back to School – Is the Child Sitting Next to Yours Immunized?
The article goes on to berate vaccine exemption options and parents who use personal belief exemptions to opt-out of vaccines for their children. It stops short of ordering parents to march into their children's classrooms and demand to know who's vaccinated and who's not (health privacy laws prevent that anyway).
It peppers you with enough scare tactics – along with links to information on vaccine exemptions and states that allow personal belief exemptions – to leave readers convinced they need to do something to stop vaccine exemptions.

At Last! Government Documents Locked Up for 30 Years Proving This Vaccine Unsafe Finally RevealedBy Christina England | August 30th, 2012
Many parents are opting to have their children vaccinated with the single measles, mumps and rubella vaccines due to growing concerns about the safety of the MMR, but are they jumping out of the frying pan into the fire? Hidden government documents have revealed that leading professionals have had serious concerns about the safety of the single measles vaccines for many years.
Secret government documents that have been under lock and key for thirty years have revealed that the UK government has known for many years that the single measles vaccine can cause the debilitating neurological disorder SSPE or Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis.
SSPE is a degenerative neurological condition, which affects a person’s behavior, memory and coordination, leading to fits, blindness and eventually death. The Disabled World News 2010  says that the symptoms a person with SSPE experiences are subtle:

Americans Fight for Vaccine Choices5/14/2012
Philosophical Exemption To Vaccination Saved in Vermont!
by Barbara Loe Fisher
In the first five months of 2012, NVIC staff and volunteers have helped citizens in Vermont and California take a stand in the historic state-based fight against Big Pharma, medical trade associations and government health lobbyists pressuring legislators to eliminate the legal right to exercise personal belief exemptions to vaccination in America. Personal belief exemptions include those for sincerely held religious, conscientious and philosophical beliefs.
The proliferation of new vaccines that have been added in the past 25 years to the government mandated child vaccination schedule, coupled with growing awareness that many highly vaccinated children are chronically ill, is powering the new citizen activism. Educated mothers and fathers have joined with enlightened health care professionals and are publicly defending the human right to exercise informed consent to medical risk-taking, which includes the legal right of parents of minor children to weigh the benefits and risks of vaccines and make voluntary vaccination decisions.
Educating One Legislator At A Time
Ground zero this year has been Vermont (S199) and California (AB2109). NVIC Director of State Advocacy, Dawn Richardson said, “We are educating one legislator at a time. Many are telling us that they have never taken a critical look at vaccine mandates and are surprised at what they are learning. They see smart, articulate parents taking a rational and principled stand for the freedom to make voluntary decisions about vaccinating their children and it is changing their views. They realize that a lot of the information being given to them by lobbyists, who are trying to take away personal belief exemptions, is just plain wrong.
Today, everybody knows somebody who was healthy, got vaccinated and was never healthy again. Among America’s highly vaccinated child population, today 1 child 6 is learning disabled; 1 in 9 is asthmatic; 1 in 88 develops autism and 1 in 450 becomes diabetic. Children are paying a high price for being forced to submit to one-size-fits-all vaccine mandates as many American parents are placed in the untenable position of choosing between protecting the health of their children and educating their children.

House Rejects Effort To Eliminate Philosophical ExemptionThursday, 04/12/12 5:50pm
Vermont Public Radio
(Host) After several hours of debate, the House last night rejected an effort to eliminate the philosophical exemption to the state's mandatory childhood immunization law.
The vote on the amendment was 93 to 36.
VPR's Bob Kinzel reports:
(Kinzel) This bill has become one of the most emotional issues facing lawmakers this year because it pits public health concerns against the rights of parents to determine health decisions involving their children.
There are three exemptions to Vermont's mandatory childhood immunization law; for medical reasons, for religious beliefs and for philosophical concerns.

Andrew Wakefield, the doctor who was struck off the medical register after triggering a health scare linking autism to the MMR vaccine, is suing the editor-in-chief of the British Medical Journal for defamation.
In a complaint filed to a district court in Texas, lawyers acting for Wakefield claim that articles, editorials and other statements that appeared in the BMJ were "false and make defamatory allegations" about the doctor.

GSK lab fined over vaccine tests that killed 14 babiesJanuary 5, 2012
GlaxoSmithKline Argentina Laboratories company was fined 400,000 pesos by Judge Marcelo Aguinsky following a report issued by the National Administration of Medicine, Food and Technology (ANMAT in Spanish) for the killing of 14 babies during illegal lab vaccine trials conducted between 2007 and 2008.
Likewise, two doctors -Héctor Abate, and Miguel Tregnaghi- were fined with 300,000 pesos each for irregularities during the studies.
The charges included experimenting with human beings, falsifying parental authorizations so babies could participate in vaccine-trials conducted by the laboratory from 2007 to 2008.
Since 2007, 15,000 children under the age of one from Mendoza, San Juan and Santiago del Estero have been included in the research protocol, a statement of what the study is trying to achieve. Babies were recruited from poor families that attended to public hospitals.
A total of 7 babies died in Santiago del Estero; 5 in Mendoza; and 2 in San Juan.

$61 Million Dollar Settlement for a Child Injured by a Vaccine Negotiated by Attorneys at Maglio Christopher & Toale, PAPRWeb – Fri, Jul 1, 2011
The U.S Federal Vaccine Court awarded a $61 million settlement for a child who suffered a severe adverse reaction after an immunization. Vaccine attorneys at the law firm of Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A., believed that the case was clearly a result of a reaction to the DTaP immunization. Court documents show that only hours after the baby received a routine diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccination, she started to have seizures, abnormal breathing, irregular heartbeats, and at 6:05am the next morning, her heart stopped completely. It took 6 minutes of CPR to revive her. She has spent that last 6 years of her life suffering from cognitive delays, cerebral palsy, encephalopathy, and seizure disorder. The family's attorneys say the $61 million dollar award will pay for the child's around the clock medical care for the rest of her life.

Truth About Gardasil Demands that the Department of Justice Investigate HPV Vaccines. Part 2 of 3September 29, 2011
Activist group delves further into the HPV Vaccines and the questions and possible dangers surrounding them.
Winston Salem, North Carolina, United States of America (Free-Press-Release.com) September 29, 2011 -- In part 1, we outlined for you how limiting the participation in the clinical trials has the potential to impact the general population that the vaccine is administered to and raised our concerns about the composition of the placebo. With all of this data that has been accumulated, one has to go back to the ingredients of the vaccine and ask why they cause the reaction rates that they do. We are only going to concern ourselves with the carrier solution here because we feel that the HPV-VLP rDNA is of a lesser concern.
In essence, these vaccines have the very real possibility of causing allergies (42), hyper-IgE syndrome, and a myriad of other symptoms that Merck and GlaxoSmithKline either have a treatment for or have ongoing studies to treat these conditions and/or symptoms..
These vaccines are creating a new clientele for therapies manufactured by Merck and GlaxpSmithKline. It is our belief that this comes under your jurisdiction in regards to the anti-trust laws.

Pharma-backed legislation to allow secret vaccinations of children without parental consent about to become law in CaliforniaSeptember 20, 2011
(NaturalNews) Growing and widespread public awareness about the dangers associated with vaccines has naturally resulted in the steady decline of this once-lucrative sector of conventional "medicine." And in a desperate effort to preserve the financial viability of vaccines, Big Pharma has switched gears and is now attempting to legislate the secret vaccination of young children without parental consent -- and we must band together now to stop this horrendous affront to health freedom from becoming law.

At least half of all parents tried over shaken baby syndrome have been wrongly convicted, expert warns30 April 2011
Eleven years ago, Lorraine Harris stood trial at Nottingham Crown Court charged with manslaughter. Although described as a woman of good character and a careful and caring mother, she was accused of shaking her four-month-old baby Patrick to death two years earlier.
Neuropathologist Dr Squier wrote a report for the prosecution saying that the child was the victim of shaken baby syndrome (SBS).
... ‘I now believe that half or even more of those who have been brought to trial in the past for SBS have been wrongly convicted. It is a frightening thought.’ It is indeed, and it is an extraordinary claim but one that should be taken seriously. Dr Squier, 63, is the most experienced paediatric neuropathologist in the country. She has spent 30 years researching baby brains and has a solid international reputation.

Vaccines - The Emperor Has No Clothes...August 26th, 2011
Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
On Thursday, August 18th, 2011, a meeting was held in Washington, DC hosted by John Thompson - Deputy Director, Office of Environmental Policy, U.S. Department of State. It was very eventful.
The fact that the meeting happened at all cascaded shock waves through the vaccine promotional community. Why? Because the reality of this meeting, and where the vaccine situation is heading, shows that the carefully contrived world of vaccine promotion is crumbling - and, hopefully, it will never recover.
The official reason for the meeting, called a "US State Department Listening Meeting" was primarily about the presentation of several NGOs (Non Government Organizations) each of whom have a seat at the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) on mercury in the environment, alongside the US State Department.
Those NGOs take a completely different position, in fact in total opposition, to certain official US government agencies, and pharmaceutical trade groups, on the issue being addressed at the UN meeting - mercury in the world environment.

Here is an excellent summary of the medical problem with mandating child HPV vaccination from the Catholic Medical Association (CMA). They oppose mandatory vaccination on several counts, and their brief reaffirms my point that sexual behavior and parental rights must be part of any future discussions of the UN program.

Fractures believed to be child abuse may be metabolic bone diseaseMay 3, 2011
Pediatric Academic Societies’ Annual Meeting 2011
New data suggest that metabolic bone disease, not child abuse, may be the cause of multiple unexplained fractures in some infants.
“Classic metaphyseal lesions, posterior rib fractures and fractures in different stages of healing are thought to be pathognomonic for child abuse,” researchers wrote. “However, we believe these findings can also be seen in metabolic bone disease of infancy.”
“Careful review of the X-rays with attention to the predisposing factors that can impair fetal and infant bone mineralization is critical to avoid an erroneous diagnosis of child abuse,” they wrote. “We do not believe that most [classical metaphyseal lesions] are fractures, but rather are regions of non-mineralized osteoid in healing [metabolic bone disease in infancy].”

Navy revises vaccine exemption policy and regs by attorney request - twice!April 26, 2011 by: Alan Phillips, J.D.
(NaturalNews) Lawmakers can and sometimes do enact laws that are unconstitutional. They can do this for the simple reason that a law isn't technically unconstitutional until a court says it is. This makes sense, since anyone can cry "unconstitutional" at any time about anything. Unfortunately, though, this means that laws can be enacted that are unconstitutional, whether intentionally or not by those enacting them. Such a situation occurred with the design of some Navy regulations concerning vaccine religious exemptions. The good news is, when the problems were pointed out to Navy officials at the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery in Washington D.C., they agreed to change policy and revise the regulations accordingly -- twice!

Perspective Safety, Supply, and Suits — Litigation and the Vaccine IndustryNEJM | April 20, 2011
On February 22, 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth that vaccine makers are immune from lawsuits charging that the design of a vaccine is defective. Many physicians and public health organizations applauded this outcome, believing that it will help to ensure the availability and promote the appropriate use of childhood vaccines. Others worry about what it may mean for patients’ rights.
... in 1986, Congress enacted the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), establishing a no-fault compensation system (“vaccine court”) for children who were harmed by adverse events following vaccine administration, as long as there was evidence that the vaccine actually caused the problem. The system is expert-driven, and there are no jury trials. Compensation covers the costs of medical expenses, projected lost earnings, and up to $250,000 for pain and suffering but does not include punitive damages. It is paid out of taxes levied on each dose of vaccine. Although the NCVIA permits plaintiffs to reject an outcome and file a claim in court, its key preemption provision says that “no vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death . . . if the injury or death resulted from side effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accompanied by proper directions and warnings.”

Seth Mnookin walks away without answering awkward questions on US government concessions regarding autism and vaccineApril 19, 2011
Panic Virus’ author Seth Mnookin closed his blog the other week entitled ‘More embarrassing reporting from CBS News’s Sharyl Attkisson’ (HERE) without responding to fundamental criticisms. ...
CHS summarised the points on Mnookin’s blog:-
- The US HRSA has confirmed vaccines can cause autistic conditions.
- Merck’s current Director of Vaccines Division confirmed vaccines can cause autistic conditions – and that was when she was the Head of the US Centers for Disease Control.
- Autistic conditions can be caused by multiple vaccines as was conceded by the US Department of Health and Human Services in the Hannah Poling case.
- Autistic conditions can result from acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) following MMR vaccination as held by the US Federal Court in the case of Bailey Banks.
- The increase in autistic conditions, diabetes, childhood asthma and obesity can only be caused by enviromental factors as was confirmed by the current Director of the US National Institutes of Health and leading geneticist Dr Francis Collins in evidence to Congress when he was head of the Human Genome Project.
- the rate in the USA is approximately 1 in 100 and in the UK it is 1 in 64
- the cost to the UK has been estimated to be £28 billion per annum.

Indicted Researcher Poul Thorsen: Autism Speaks' Original TrailblazerApril 19, 2011
Poul Thorsen, indicted last week (HERE) by US Attorneys for embezzling tax payers money via the Centers for Disease Control, also received $1 Million in funding through an Autism Speaks grant in 2008 (HERE). Now Autism Speaks is trying to hide their Thorsen affiliation. Why is that?
Families across the country work diligently to raise money for Autism Speaks at over 80 walks per year, despite the knowledge that Autism Speaks' research approach has always been to supplement projects currently underway by the CDC and NIH. This arrangement between Autism Speaks and the CDC/NIH amounts to a supplemental federal tax. However, walkers are willing to contribute, and individuals can light their money on fire by contributing at walks if they want.
Poul Thorsen crafted the plan to use Denmark vaccination data despite the fact that CDC, Thorsen and the NAAR board all knew that Denmark's vaccine schedule then, and now, is not remotely similar to the US vaccine schedule. The results of the Denmark studies helped the CDC out of a tough spot and over the past decade, Thorsen's studies were utilized by the CDC repeatedly to falsely reassure the American public about the safety of vaccines. CDC certainly owed Thorsen.

PIDS releases position statement on immunization exemptionsApril 15, 2011
The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society recently issued a position statement that “opposes any legislation or regulation that would allow children to be exempted from mandatory immunizations based simply on their parents’, or in the case of adolescents, their own, secular personal beliefs.”
In the statement, Christopher J. Harrison, MD, of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS), and others, including Infectious Diseases in Children Editorial Board member Paul A. Offit, MD, said any legislation being considered should contain certain provisions; notably, that parents who are claiming exemptions be given counseling about the importance of immunization to their own child, as well as the community overall, and that parents would have to sign a statement that they understand the risks of not immunizing their child.

Dr. Peter Gerhardt on the Needs of Adults with AutismApril 10, 2011
As you'll read, Dr. Gerhardt is among the growing community of autism experts who is concerned that we will soon be overwhelmed by a "wave" of adults with autism spectrum diagnoses. In his view, available resources are already swamped - and are unlikely to improve quickly in the present economic environment. Gerhardt outlines the issues, and then presents a challenge, paraphrasing Hubert Humphrey: "For generations of adults with autism and their families, this is a test we cannot afford to fail."

“Parents Lose High Court Appeal in Vaccine Case”The article started with a harsh paragraph:
“The Supreme Court closed the courthouse door Tuesday to parents who want to sue drug makers over claims that their children developed autism and other serious health problems from vaccines.

Proposed new limits on vaccine exemptions: Are they constitutional?February 22, 2011 by: Alan Phillips, J.D.
NaturalNews) Health authorities around the country are set on further restricting vaccine exemption rights, probably due to the growing awareness of vaccine problems and increase in exemptions around the country. Currently, proposed laws in Washington State and New Jersey would limit the ability of residents in those states to refuse vaccines. If not stopped, those new restrictions will soon become law and pave the way for further restrictions across the country. Predictably, anti-vaccine activists are opposing these bills, but with state health departments and well-financed pharmaceutical lobbyists on the other side, is a grass roots effort likely to succeed? Hopefully so, but if the proposed laws are shown to raise significant Constitutional issues, anti-vaccine activists may find that they have a "David" advantage against the "Goliath" opposition.

Father Fights Immunization PolicyUpdated: Oct 27, 2010
A Southwest Florida father is suing the Lee County School District over its immunization policy.
Acupuncture physician Robert Murdoch has not had his two teenagers vaccinated.
After extensive research, he's decided vaccines are not effective and even down-right toxic because some include mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde.
"People are being coerced into a medical treatment that has very suspect science behind it," he explains.
The school district granted his kids exemptions so they could go to school, but you'd never know you had that right by looking at the district's website.
Robert made a personal appeal to Superintendent Browder in hopes of making the exemptions known to parents, but his request was rejected.
And that's why he is suing, he wants you to know there are exemptions to the immunization requirement.

Ex-Pfizer Scientist wins $1.37 Million in Lawsuit Against Pfizer in Biotech Viral Exposure LawsuitThursday, April 1, 2010
I have posted on this before and below is the prior article about Becky McCain. This is fascinating to listen to her comments and anyone can benefit here. She states that the dangers are being hid and is requesting OSHA coverage for workers due to the condition she contracted as a molecular biologist, who manipulates DNA, works with assays and clones genetics with stem cells.
Injured Pfizer Biotech Talks About Biotech Safety and How She Became Infected and Sick at the Lab - Pfizer Won’t Release Health Records to Her Physician
“She was working with stem cell research and with various viruses. Pfizer will not release her medical records. It took 2 years to find out what she had been exposed to. What is shocking is that it was ruled that “trade secrets” were ruled as more important than her being able to get her health records. Genetically engineered viruses are created in all labs so cures can be created. They are cells that can make animals sick, so they can make humans sick too. She brings up some very good points about Biotech safety being needed everywhere.

Virginia House approves bill to end HPV vaccine mandate four years after overwhelmingly approving itJanuary 27 2011
(NaturalNews) Controversy over the safety of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine has led to a resolution to end mandates requiring young girls to receive it. If passed by the Virginia state Senate, a bill recently passed by the Virginia House of Delegates will end mandates put into place in 2007 requiring 11- and 12-year-old girls to receive the HPV vaccine before entering sixth grade.
"We just want to make sure parents are evaluating the risks of what they're giving their daughters, and not a legislative body," said Del. Kathy J. Byron (R-Lynchburg), sponsor of the bill. "I don't think that we have the medical degree to make those decisions."
The House voted 61-33 to end the mandate, leaving only Washington D.C. with HPV vaccine mandates. Texas Gov. Rick Perry attempted to mandate the HPV vaccine for young girls in 2007 through an executive order, but lawmakers effectively blocked it.

Thousands of Oregon Students Threatened With Mandatory Vaccinations
Administrators turned away hundreds of students in an Oregon county who did not comply with a previous ruling of mandatory vaccinations earlier this week.
School officials thought it would be appropriate to give children a green sticker of approval if they (and their parents) succumbed to the pressure imposed on them to receive the highly controversial flu vaccinations. Those without the sticker were told to go home.

Vaccine Court: Autism Debate ContinuesJun 10 2009
Court Again Concedes Vaccines Cause Autism
This week, in aHuffington Postexclusive, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and investigative journalist David Kirby reveal that in the recent case of Bailey Banks vs HHS, the Vaccine Court has ruled vaccines caused Bailey’s autism and ordered compensation for his family.
Banks is the second case where the government could not deny the overwhelming evidence showing vaccines caused a child’s autism. The first was the case of Hannah Poling in March 2008. The government conceded the case and awarded her family compensation.
Small victories for these children, but what about the hundreds of thousands of other families struggling with autism? Who and what can they believe in this continuing vaccine-autism controversy?

Children Who Have Received No Vaccines: Who Are They and Where Do They Live?Received December 2, 2003.
Participants. A total of 151 720 children sampled between 1995 and 2001, 795 of whom were unvaccinated.
Results. Undervaccinated children tended to be black, to have a younger mother who was not married and did not have a college degree, to live in a household near the poverty level, and to live in a central city. Unvaccinated children tended to be white, to have a mother who was married and had a college degree, to live in a household with an annual income exceeding $75 000, and to have parents who expressed concerns regarding the safety of vaccines and indicated that medical doctors have little influence over vaccination decisions for their children. Unvaccinated children were more likely to be male than female. Annually, ∼17 000 children were unvaccinated. The largest numbers of unvaccinated children lived in counties in California, Illinois, New York, Washington, Pennsylvania, Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah, and Michigan. States that allowed philosophical exemptions to laws mandating vaccinations for children as they entered school had significantly higher estimated rates of unvaccinated children.

Demographics of Unvaccinated Children
What are the characteristics of children who have received no vaccinations compared with those who are undervaccinated and to those who are fully immunized?
In 2001, 62.8% of US children 19 to 35 months of age were fully immunized with all the vaccines that were recommended at that time. It was estimated that 3 children per thousand had never received any vaccines (unvaccinated). The study found marked differences in the characteristics between children who were completely unvaccinated, those that either received some vaccines, and those who were fully vaccinated as recommended.
Children who had received some but not all recommended doses (undervaccinated) tended to be black and had a younger, often-unmarried mother who had less education than fully immunized children. These underimmunized children were more likely to live in a household below the poverty level, with more children, and had moved across state lines.
Compared to undervaccinated children, unvaccinated children were more likely to be non-Hispanic white, have a mother who was older, married and who had a college degree. These children were more likely to live in a household with an annual income exceeding $75,000.
