As I mentioned in my previous post, I have met some amazing, intelligent, strong and caring women who are not afraid to speak up and take a stand when it comes to the health of children -- their own and others. Many are mothers of vaccine injured children -- children with compromised immunity, mitochrondrial disorders, autism spectrum disorders -- and many are mothers whose precious children died soon after receiving vaccines. The cause of death for many of these children was SIDS, but the mothers do not agree. Others, like me, are the fortunate ones who questioned vaccine safety and the ever increasing vaccine schedule even though we had not experienced a vaccine injury. As a result of independent research, we made alternative vaccine decisions which may have saved our children from becoming another vaccine victim.
As if the pain of losing a child or having a child with autism and chronic health challenges isn't heartbreaking enough, many of these mothers carry with them a tremendous sense of guilt because they, not knowing that vaccines could cause harm, trusted their doctors and permitted their child to be vaccinated. They often share how they just wish someone had told them about the dangers before they had their child vaccinated.
The following post was written by VCPC member Nancy Babcock, who is passionate in her mission to educate others about the dangers of vaccines. Please read and share. You may just save a child from vaccine injury or death and a mother from heartbreak.
Why I Don't Vaccinate
by Nancy Babcock ~ October 10, 2014
I have many new Facebook friends and many have asked me about vaccines, if they should vaccinate, which ones, etc.
Here is what I can tell you:
Close to 5 years ago, I began researching vaccines because I knew things had changed a great deal since I was young. We all had chicken pox, measles, mumps, rubella, etc., as kids. No one feared these things. They were a right of passage. You stayed home from school, got spoiled, watched cartoons and went back to school and that was that. We also didn’t have peanut allergies, or autism or diabetes. As a child, I knew of no one who had any if these illnesses. I think we received about 4 vaccines in my generation. I began to realize that today’s children receive a lot more, but I didn’t realize how many. I learned: 69 doses of 16 vaccines before age 18. Including a Hep B vaccine on day of birth in most hospitals. Outrageous.
A picture started to form while I was doing this research. A very clear picture that was at the same time, very disturbing.
Vaccines kill children
This is not a conspiracy. This is a fact that is admitted by doctors, the package inserts and the manufacturers themselves. Children die after vaccine. A lot more often then you would imagine.
Vaccines cause harm
I know that with every “medicine,” there is risk. The benefit should offset the risk. None of these childhood illnesses were worrisome when I was young. When you vaccinate, you take the risk of lifelong chronic illness, or even death. A big price to pay, to avoid a mild childhood illness that gives you lifelong immunity.
Read about them. Understand them. It’s no wonder so many children die and are injured. Read the inserts too.
I learned a placebo isn’t a placebo when it comes to vaccine studies. I learned that the studies are not independent. I learned that nothing is what I thought it was. The vaccine industry has long known the harmful side effects and are indemnified from any harm they cause. Some of the things that have happened are downright criminal, but no one will step in and prosecute.
There is no advance warning for vaccine injury. It doesn’t matter if you selectively vaccinate, get one vaccine, delay, etc. You have no way of knowing in advance if your children will be injured. If you are holding your breath and praying when you vaccinate, you shouldn’t be vaccinating.
Take your time
You are in no rush. Take all the time necessary to learn everything you can so you can make an informed decision.
Most doctors know as much about vaccines as I know about rocket engines
Doctors don’t know what is in a vaccine, what isn’t in a vaccine, what an injury looks like or how to report them. Most doctors, according to some research, don’t even vaccinate their kids on schedule. Most doctors aren’t “up to date” on their own vaccines. Most doctors don’t understand the history of herd immunity and how it does not apply to vaccinated populations. They don’t understand anything outside of what they have been taught by their pharma-funded schooling.
Don’t be bullied
The AAP, which is where pediatricians get all their information, pushes pediatricians to have their patients vaccinated and the propaganda is extreme. Many peds are not seeing patients who don’t vaccinate. FINE. They work for you and not vice versa. Find a family doctor or a DO or a chiropractor or an ND to see you and your kids. Most don’t push vaccines because they don’t have the AAP breathing down their necks. Most kids don’t need medical care anyway. “Well visits” are vaccine visits.
Vaccines aren’t required for school
Exemptions exist in every state. Some states are more difficult than others, but they exist in every state.
Many doctors have spoken out against vaccines
Vaccines didn't save us from anything
Yes, we have been told that vaccines eradicated polio, small pox, etc. I have learned there is so much manipulation, it's hard to know exactly what happened with polio, but it's very clear that vaccines didn't eradicate it in the U.S. or in any other country. In fact, there is plenty of evidence vaccines have caused polio many times, in the U.S. and in other countries. Looking at the history of disease and mortality rates before and after vaccine was mind blowing.
Study, read, research, ask questions, talk to other parents, read everything you can get your hands on. Then make a decision. Don’t let anyone make your decision for you. It’s your child, your choice.
