have been in the world of special-needs advocacy for 10 years, and in that
time I have come across countless people who are defensive, close-minded,
and extremely indoctrinated about their across-the-board absolute statements
that vaccines canít cause autism. These people are often applauded or even
possibly financially compensated for their stance.
After a decade of some disappointing and one-sided conversations, I refuse
to go toe-to-toe with these people anymore, because they are not going to
hear me, and I am not going to hear them. But I would like to go on record
with a quick list of how I know it did (in my sonís situation), and does
happen. VACCINES CAN CAUSE ďAUTISM.Ē THEY CAUSED MY SONíS ďAUTISM.Ē THEY
CAUSED MANY OF MY FRIENDSí CHILDRENíS ďAUTISM.Ē
Hereís what I want to say to all the people who say it isnít so:
1) Many people have been compensated
in vaccine court for
medical issues that are a part of their autism and even autism itself. If
the American government is paying people who have autism due to
can you say vaccines donít cause autism?
2) Many autoimmune
issues are scattered throughout my family including lupus,
epilepsy, asthma, allergies, and eczema. How do you attempt to trick a
babyís immune system, when that system is likely not functioning properly?
Thirteen needles worth of maniuplation by six months of age without
consideration for family history is just plain old insanity, actually. But
thatís what happened to my son.
3) Speaking of family
history, my sister spent a week in the hospital after the MMR at
age 7, and my cousin contracted a ďrare
blood diseaseĒ after her
nursing school vaccines at age 24. My sister was never vaccinated again per
her pediatrician, and my cousin will never vaccinate herself or any child
she may have, either. Which leads to the argument that there are people who
cannot handle vaccines, and thatís why everyone ELSE should be
vaccinated Ė to create herd immunity for those that are contraindicated,
immune-challenged individuals like my son. Well, no one is considering each
childís vulnerability. No one. Every child is vaccinated with no questions
asked (unless the parent refuses). In addition, herd
immunity is nothing more than a theory. I
havenít been vaccinated in years. And I certainly wasnít vaccinated against
much. Studies show immunity wanes in 2-10 years. Iíve had maybe seven
vaccines. How many adults do you know who are fully vaccinated?
4) I worked for a pediatrician as an autism family advocate. I did intake
for approximately 300
families with children with autism. I took my
story to the CDC. From what
I saw, many of these families and their previous doctors linked vaccines to
their childrenís issues. There were no ďcoincidences.Ē Like my family,
more than half had autoimmune family histories.
5) As an activist in childrenís health, you meet many moms who have
sick children. Some of them have kids with autism, some with
PANDAS/PANS, some with life-threatening allergies, others with the most
terrible of attention/behavior issues, skin issues, learning issues, sleep
issues, breathing issues. Some with mitochondrial disorders, some with
genetic issues in the family, some even courageously face cancer. Because
most of these issues can overlap, we may not even see it because we donít
know what ďnormalĒ looks like anymore. Children with chronic
health issues have become the norm. Many things can be connected
to the declining health of America, but some things stand out: the uptake
in vaccines; the uptake in the use
of Roundup and GMOs; the
use of chemicals with no
safety data, making vaccines just that much more potentially harmful. All
combining to poison our children.
6) My sonís issues have improved dramatically from treatment
for vaccine injury. He has been treated for heavy metal burden,
immune system dysfunction involving hard to treat systemic pathogens, gut
dysbiosis and inflammation. And his life is going to turn out great, you
know why? We TREATED the vaccine injury. He was basically non-verbal at
four and not toileting at age five. He is now a seventh grader and is fully
included. You can read more about him and our path in the last
chapter of The Thinking Momsí book.
7) And finally, hereís the rub. My sonís pediatrician concluded that his autism
was caused by his vaccines. You
do not know my child. His doctor and his parents do.
I am completely aware that this might not be your childís story. I am only
telling ours. Our TRUTH.
