This year, the fear mongering about measles has reached epidemic proportions in America. A day doesn’t go by without media outlets publishing angry articles and editorials spewing hatred toward a tiny minority of parents with unvaccinated children, who are being blamed for measles outbreaks. 1 2 3 The remedy is always a call to track down, persecute and punish any parent whose child is not vaccinated. 4 5 6
Some state and federal lawmakers are reacting to the relentless fear mongering by proposing to severely restrict the medical vaccine exemption and eliminate all religious and conscientious belief exemptions in state vaccine laws. 7 8 9 10 These exemptions, which help prevent vaccine injuries and deaths, also protect parental rights, civil liberties and the ethical principle of informed consent to medical risk taking. 11

It’s not “cool” to not vaccinate.
And not in the way you think I mean.
Socially and professionally, it’s suicide.
As the middle of five siblings all born between 1947 and 1957, I was lucky enough (we all were) to get natural measles and lifelong immunity. So did our cousins, friends, classmates, etc., and those of us who became mothers, passed on protection to our children for the first several months of life. When my early vaccine safety research started in 1988, I talked with my own mother, aunts, and friends' mothers to find out what it was like when we kids got measles, mumps, chickenpox, etc. Read more about that here, but basically they all said, "No big deal." A few years ago, I asked my then almost 90 year old aunt what she remembered about measles. She told me when she was young (one of ten children) and got "them", they put a measles quarantine sign on the house. They had to stay inside and no one could come in; but years later, when her own four kids got measles, she told me there was no sign. She laughed and said, "Measles? Never thought much about it. Just waited until they ran through the house and were finished!"
I know that there can be complications with measles. They're listed in five lines on page 1 of the vaccine package insert. However, if you turn to pages 3 through 8 of that same vaccine package insert, you'll find those same complications plus a whole lot more listed under vaccine contraindications, warnings, precautions and adverse reactions. In most cases with rest, good nutrition and adequate Vitamin A (Mom always made us take cod liver oil) measles is a fairly benign illness; and as a reward for your temporary discomfort and inconvenience, you'll have lifelong immunity. I hope the information below will help you put and keep measles in perspective. Read, watch, share; and if you've had a measles experience -- either as a child or more recently -- please post a comment sharing what it was like when measles "ran through your house."
Stanley Plotkin, MD, aka "The Godfather of Vaccines, is considered the world's leading authority on vaccines.
Originally published in 1988 and now in it's 7th edition, his book "Plotkin's Vaccines" is the standard textbook for vaccines; and has been called "the bible for vaccinologists" by pro vaccine advocate, Bill Gates. Following an introduction at the February 2017 meeting of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services National Vaccine Advisory Committee, Dr. Plotkin commented, "I hope you all have indeed have read the book, and I hope it's more accurate than the Bible." Listen to Dr. Plotkin make that statement here.
Dr. Plotkin is an atheist who has little tolerance for religious beliefs. He stands by his statement, “Vaccination is always under attack by religious zealots who believe that the will of God includes death and disease.”
The first video below, is a brief excerpt from a nine-hour deposition, in which Dr. Plotkin while under oath, details the use of aborted babies in vaccines. If you have read J. B. Handley's, "How To End the Autism Epidemic" you will be aware of this deposition conducted by attorney, Aaron Siri. In the second video (beginning at 0:29:54) from the January 17th episode of The HighWire, you'll hear several pro vaccine advocates praise Dr. Plotkin and get a sense of the "god-like" influence that Dr. Plotkin has over them. Perhaps the most revealing and disturbing comment about Dr Plotkin comes from Dr. Paul Offit who states, "He trained a generation just a generation of scientists, including myself, to think like he thinks."

Ashley Everly is a toxicologist, science writer, activist and the mother of a vaccine injured child. She is also the force behind Vaccine Guide and the blog think love healthy. Click here to listen to a very informative interview with Ashley; and keep reading for a post that she recently shared on her Facebook page, about the importance of high quality vaccine safety research; which is vital for anyone considering vaccines for themselves or their children. If you are new to vaccine safety research and not sure where to begin, start here; and be sure read the recently published, very comprehensive, well written, well referenced, "How To End the Autism Epidemic" by J. B. Handley.
The following post appeared on Ashley Everly's Facebook page on November 14, 2018. Thank you Ashley for another great post and for all that you do to protect children and families from the harm and heartache that vaccines can and do cause.
The end game of every single debate on vaccines comes down to the quality of the research.
The pro-vaccine side absolutely cannot disagree that there is a great deal of research that calls into question the safety and efficacy of vaccines.
What they will do, however, is discredit every single scientist or researcher - from countries all over the world - who publishes research that is critical of vaccines.
Followers of this page, of Vaccine Guide, and of many other prominent, outspoken critics of the vaccine establishment, know that there is more than enough published scientific research and evidence otherwise to prove that vaccines are neither safe, nor effective.
Unfortunately, this research hardly ever sees the light of day because the CDC and the mainstream media (more than they care to do their due diligence and put the health and welfare of the people first) are mouthpieces for the industry.
J. B. Handley's new book, "How To End the Autism Epidemic" has created quite a stir in the vaccine truth movement. Here's a brief synopsis from the book's publisher, Chelsea Green Publishing...
"In How to End the Autism Epidemic, Generation Rescue’s co-founder J.B. Handley offers a compelling, science-based explanation of what’s causing the autism epidemic, the lies that enable its perpetuation, and the steps we must take as parents and as a society in order to end it...Handley confronts and dismantles the most common lies about vaccines and autism. He then lays out, in detail, what the truth actually is: new published science links the aluminium adjuvant used in vaccines to immune activation events in the brains of infants, triggering autism; and there is a clear legal basis for the statement that vaccines cause autism, including previously undisclosed depositions of prominent autism scientists under oath." - Chelsea Green Publishing
On the September 20th episode of The HighWire, host Del Bigtree interviewed J.B. Handley, Jenny McCarthy, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Rolf Hazlehurst, a Tennessee Assistant District Attorney and father of a vaccine injured autistic son who was denied compensation in the Omnibus Autism Proceeding (OAP). Del and guests discuss J.B.'s book; review the details of the Omnibus hearings and the fraud perpetrated by Department of Justice lawyers that resulted in the denial of compensation to more than 5,500 families for their vaccine injured children; and closed the door to any further claims of vaccine induced autism. Listen to their powerful and eye-opening discussion below; and please share with others.

Robert Kennedy, Jr. has been fighting to protect all of us from exposures that have a negative impact on our environment and our health for a very long time. In recent years, much of his effort, through his World Mercury Project, has focused on the adverse health effects those environmental factors, including vaccines, have on our children. World Mercury Project has changed its name to Children's Health Defense with a mission "to end the childhood health epidemics by working aggressively to eliminate harmful exposures, hold those responsible accountable, and establish safeguards so this never happens again."

A young mother recently told me how her infant son slept through the night following his vaccines, not even waking up for his feeding. Her pediatrician assured her the next morning that it was "normal." As you will learn in the video below, "excessive sleepiness" is a vaccine reaction to watch for. Knowing how to recognize a vaccine reaction, and asking yourself these 8 questions before you vaccinate, could save your child from long-term vaccine injury and even death. Please share this important information with those who choose to vaccinate.

Do you know how to recognize a vaccine reaction?
Like with prescription drugs and other pharmaceutical products, reactions to vaccines can be mild or severe. There can be complete recovery or long lasting health problems after vaccine reactions. Rarely, vaccine reactions can be fatal. 1 2
If you are making a decision about vaccination for yourself or your child, it is important to first become fully informed about each vaccine’s reported side effects, precautions and contraindications, which means reasons for why a person may be at risk for having a serious reaction. 3 4
It is especially important for parents to become informed about vaccine complications and how to recognize the symptoms of a vaccine reaction. 5

When it comes to vaccine safety, I question what has happened to common sense which the Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines as "sound and prudent judgement based on a simple perception of the situation or facts." I agree with something a wise young father once said to me, "Common sense has become uncommon sense."
Listen below to this brief and compelling message from Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and the World Mercury Project; and then ask yourself, does it make sense?

“Consider this. That all of the companies that make vaccines, Merck, Sanofi, Glaxo and Pfizer, have all paid billions of dollars in penalties in their pharmaceutical business for lying to the public, for cheating on their testing, for deceiving regulators and for committing other crimes in order to sell products and maximize their profits. Why does anybody believe that if you suddenly gave them immunity from all liability which we’ve done with vaccines, that they’d suddenly stop doing bad things to our children and to the rest of us? It makes no sense; and of course, they haven’t.”
- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., World Mercury Project -
Has "no liability" from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Act led to massive vaccine manufacturers profits and a rise in childhood chronic illnesses? Taxpayers have paid almost $4 BILLION for vaccine injuries while vaccine manufacturers are liability-free with no incentive to make safer vaccines.

If you've read my last two posts, you know that for over 30 years, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services has not made sure that childhood vaccines are safe as mandated in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. Therefore, it's up to us to demand a new vaccine safety policy. Keep reading, listen to and please share an important video message from Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., World Mercury Project.
Demand New Vaccine Safety Policy
In 1986, prior to the explosion of the vaccine schedule, only 12.4% of American children had a chronic disease such as ADHD, autism, rheumatoid arthritis, food allergies, asthma, just to name a few. Today it's 54%. Anyone who tells you vaccines are eliminated as a culprit in these childhood epidemics is not telling you the truth.

“I don’t think that there’s any crisis that is as devastating or threatening to all of our values, to everything we care about as a nation, as a people, than the epidemic of chronic disease in America’s children...We know from the science that all of these diseases can be caused by the ingredients in vaccines; and we know that the epidemic of these diseases exploded after the dramatic expansion of the vaccine schedule that took place in 1989. That doesn’t mean that all of these epidemics are definitely being caused by vaccines; but it means that we ought to be doing the science. And anybody who tells you that the science has eliminated vaccines as a culprit in these epidemics, is not telling you the truth.”
It's time to do the research and we need your help to spread the message. Facebook is not allowing us to boost ("promote") our newest video, so please watch and share this video of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and help World Mercury Project demand vaccine safety policies that start with good science and a clean regulatory process.
