When it comes to vaccine injury awareness, informed consent and vaccine choice, no one has done more or fought harder or longer for the rights of parents and children than Barbara Loe Fisher and the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) which Barbara co-founded with Kathi Williams in 1982 under the name Dissatisfied Parents Together. Barbara was there when the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed by Congress. The following HighWire interview with Barbara tells the whole story about the 1986 Act and more; and is, perhaps, the most powerful HighWire episode to date. Please take time to watch the interview, read the supporting facts, and share with others.
The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act created by members of Congress after more than four years of deliberation with vaccine stakeholders, including parents of vaccine injured children, medical trade associations, public health agencies, vaccine manufacturers, and Administration officials, was signed into law as part of an Omnibus health bill by President Ronald Reagan on Nov. 14, 1986. The Act’s provisions specifically applied to federally licensed and recommended vaccines for children routinely mandated by states
for school attendance.

“There is no justice in the compensation program. It’s a joke. It’s a cruel joke.
It’s an imitation, a poor imitation of a court trial in Washington DC,
in the U.S. Court of Special Claims.”
“…every admission, every award, is an admission that vaccines can do that; and that’s been the biggest problem because no one wants to acknowledge in the system, wants to acknowledge the extent of the problem with vaccine injury and death…
so it’s minimize, cover-up, deny.”
"The shaming and silencing of voices of the vaccine injured and those who are defending civil liberties
In the quiet suburb of Washington, D.C., the life of a stay-at-home Mom, Barbara Loe Fisher, took an unexpected turn in 1980 when her bright, healthy two and a half year old son suffered a reaction to his fourth DPT shot. It was a moment forever etched in her memory, as she remembers how her beloved first born child struggled with the ramifications of a decision she made with good intention, believing that a doctor would never give a child something that could cause harm.

“You cannot be in the presence of a profoundly vaccine damaged child and not know that child could be your own. And you cannot try to comfort a mother who has just buried a baby who has died from a vaccine...and not know that you could be the one standing over the grave. When it happens to your child, the risks are 100 percent.”

It caused quite a stir when civil liberties attorney, author and former Harvard law professor, Alan Dershowitz, stated in a public interview, “if you refuse to be vaccinated, the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor's office and plunge a needle into your arm.”
Within days, the HighWire's Del Bigtree talked with Dershowitz about that statement and others related to mandatory vaccines in an interview that you can watch here. At that time, Dershowitz stated that he had agreed to debate the vaccine issue with Children's Health Defense Chairman, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
The Kennedy/Dershowitz Vaccine Debate, which covered a great deal of information including the Covid-19 vaccine, aired Thursday, July 23, 2020. Listen below, learn and please share.

How Fear of a Virus Changed Our World
by Barbara Loe Fisher, National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC)
Fear is a primal biological response to a perceived threat to our survival. Fear triggers momentary paralysis and then a fight or flight reaction before the brain can rationally analyze and calibrate our response to a perceived threat.
Right now, people around the world are living in fear of being infected or infecting someone else with a new coronavirus that can kill those most vulnerable without warning. Along with confusion and uncertainty, which prolongs fear, many of us are traumatized by the authoritarian measures governments have taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that began in China in late 2019.
The “new normal” is disorienting, like we have taken a hit to the gut and then to the head that we didn’t see coming. Maybe that is why so many Americans, who value freedom of speech, religion, assembly, privacy and the right to work, have given those constitutional rights up, without stopping to think through the ramifications of the larger precedent being set.
We are slowly coming out of shock five months after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control declared a public health emergency on January 31, which escalated six weeks later into a social distancing lockdown when the World Health Organization declared a COVID-19 pandemic on March 11. Read more.

2019 V.I.E Event, National Mall, Washington, DC
Photo by Kari Bundy
On Thursday November 14th, I attended the 2019 Vaccine Injury Epidemic (V.I.E.) Event on the National Mall in Washington DC. About 3000 of us gathered to raise awareness of vaccine injury and to remember the victims and families who live with vaccine injury and those who did not survive their vaccine injury. It was a powerful event with excellent speakers including doctors, scientists, lawmakers, attorneys, advocates, parents of vaccine injured and deceased children and members of the clergy, one of whom was Fr. Michael Copenhagen, a Catholic priest from Rochester, New York. I had recently read Restore Ye to Its Owners: on the immorality of receiving vaccines derived from abortion by Fr. Copenhagen; so I was thrilled when I heard him introduced. Listen below and please share the video and above document with others, including and especially with clergy and members of your church; and with those who believe there is no justification for a religious exemption to vaccines.
"There are many here who make compelling scientific and personal cases, I'm here to make a religious and moral case for Catholics and for all to hear."
“Most people are misinformed about actual church teaching on the issue of immorally produced fetal cell lines; those obtained through the taking of innocent human life and the stolen DNA present in many mandated vaccines…The result is that Catholics are unrepresented in a moral fight that is ours by right and by duty. Everywhere I see faithful Catholics numbingly going against the instincts of conscience because they are convinced that the Church has given an unconditional green light to the use of these cell lines. Let’s set the record straight...”

Click here to read the 2005 Vatican document to which Fr. Copenhagen refers.
Also read the Children of God for Life document, "Aborted Fetal Material Used in Vaccines and Medicines", which answers the question "How many abortions were involved in vaccines?" This document gives the facts – the direct link to the abortions involved, the cell lines created and footnote hyperlinks directly to the science documents describing their work.
“No one is bound to participate in one sin in order to avoid another. It is never permissible to do evil for a good purpose.”
From Restore Ye to Its Owners: on the immorality of receiving vaccines derived from abortion

Vaccine Awareness Week 2019
The non-profit National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) provides the public with independent, well-referenced information on vaccines and advocates for vaccine safety and informed consent protections in the public health system. This educational charity’s mission since 1982 has been to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and to secure and defend your legal right to exercise voluntary, informed consent to vaccination. Please watch this three minute video about NVIC.
Video courtesy of Mercola.com.
In the video interview below, NVIC's Barbara Loe Fisher and holistic health advocate, Dr. Joe Mercola discuss measles outbreaks and how the ever-intensifying pressure by the forced vaccination lobby in 2019 to eliminate vaccine exemptions throughout the United States is affecting the public conversation about vaccination and informed consent rights.
This healthy little boy, whose parents have studied vaccine safety and efficacy and made the decision not to vaccinate him, has been kicked out of school in New York. His friends made him this card to tell him how much they will miss him. There are thousands of children like him.
The following post, was recently shared on Facebook. More recent articles on vaccine mandates for children and adults at the end of this post.
The Real Reason for Vaccine Mandates
by Ted Kuntz
The argument made for denying a public education to children who are unvaccinated or selectively vaccinated is the risk they pose to the immune-compromised who can’t be vaccinated. It’s a heart-warming story motivated out of compassion for those children who are medically fragile.
Or is it?
by Barbara Loe Fisher, National Vaccine Information Center
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.
