The Smearing of Dr Wakefield
Dr. Andy Wakefield  MMR vaccines

[This is propaganda ploy Word Game or ad Hominem. Comes through hack Brain Deer of the Sunday Times, flag piece of the UK Corporate media (last investigation into childhood vaccines was in a provincial US paper in 1984).  Stunning hypocrisy just for starters (all of their MMR spokespeople receive money from Merck, the MMR maker, and one has a patent on Rotavirus vaccine).  See these quotes.]

‘My husband has been persecuted by extremely powerful forces for asking questions that his research findings made it morally and ethically essential for him to ask,’.......... ‘I used to believe that this country was a bastion of academic integrity and intellectual freedom. So this whole sad process of attrition, isolation and vilification, on a very personal level, has sickened and disillusioned me. [Media Oct 2006 Wakefield] VILIFED by the MMR zealots

Dr Andrew Wakefield Demolishes Ignorant US Vaccine Lobby

"Prof Denis McDevitt,.....attended meetings that discussed warnings from other countries about an early form of the triple jab, using the Urabe strain of mumps virus, which caused encephalitis and meningitis. Despite warnings and the fact that this vaccine had already been withdrawn in Canada, the Urabe-containing jab was introduced in the UK in 1988.  Some of the 12 children whose medical history featured in the controversial 1998 Lancet paper, drawn up by Dr Wakefield and his colleagues and which suggested a possible link between the jab and bowel disease and regressive autism, had received the Urabe-strain vaccine - as indeed had some of those children in the high court litigation with manufacturers."

[NVIC June 12, 2006] UK Docs Attack Wakefield
From the moment Andy Wakefield stood his ground and said "I will not live my life in fear" and then went on to talk with me about how important it was to stand up for the truth even though you risk your life to do it, I knew he was an extraordinary individual. I knew he would make history but pay a terrible price for it.
   During the past 25 years of work to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and defend the informed consent ethic, I have seen doctors who tell the truth about vaccine risks be viciously attacked by their colleagues in government, industry and academia. The attacks are both professional and personal and, with surgical precision, the goal is to evisicerate rather than simply stun the victim. It is an ugly process and it has a distinctly Spanish Inquisition flavor to it.
  Undaunted, Dr. Wakefield has continued to conduct his humanitarian research into the biological mechanisms for MMR vaccine induced neuroimmune dysfunction. Finally, after nearly a decade of persecution for conducting scientific research that questions the scientific and moral integrity of one-size-fits-all mass vaccination policies, Andy Wakefield's accusers are taking him to their own Medical Court. In a final attempt to silence him, they want to take away his medical license and his ability to care for vaccine injured children.
   The BBC in London said the General Medical Council is charging Dr. Wakefield with carrying out "inadequately founded" research, failing to obtain ethical committee approval before publishing, acquiring funding improperly and subjecting children to 'unnecessary and invasive investigations.'
     A leading London newspaper, The Daily Mail, protested Dr. Wakefield's treatment by the General Medical Council, saying "He had a duty to speak out and now he is being made to suffer for it. His treatment by the GMC is utterly unjust. If this preposterous body had existed 200 years ago, defending the prevailing wisdom against new ideas, doctors would still be treating illnesses by slitting their patients' veins."
   F.E. Yazbak, M.D., FAAP, a pediatrician and researcher of autoimmune regressive autism and vaccine injury, has published an excellent analysis of the scientific issues and political motives involved in Wakefield's persecution at the hands of the medical hierarcrhy. Dr. Yazbak's article "When Finding Nothing Is Wonderful" was first published on RedFlags on June 9, 2006.

From Paul Shattock, "I was at the ASA conference in Indianapolis a months back. Brian Deer and a camera crew turned up. They booked under their own name. I was the warm up act and, when I had finished, I went to the back of the room to talk to parents. Then Andy was on and was as excellent as usual. As he got off the stage, he was surrounded by mothers asking questions. Deer and his crew pushed them aside, turned on their recording equipment and attempted to conduct an interview. (Clearly there was no permission or request  to film.) Andy did that thing where you put your hand over the camera lens and attempted to leave the room fast. He bent down to pick up his computer and knocked against the cameraman. Deer interprets this as an attack. Deer's interpretation is that his polite request for an interview was turned down. No doubt edited highlights of this event will be shown." ----Paul Shattock
