A message from Bernard Rimland, Ph.D.

Parents: You can make a difference! You MUST make a difference!

Big Pharma has more paid lobbyists in Washington than there are Senators and Representatives. And they have lots of money and lots of influence.

But we have Right on our side, and sincerity, and dedication. We can't let Pharma win ?" the stakes are high ?" we must win this battle, for our children and for ourselves.

Make appointments to see your Senators and Representatives. Tell them:

1. We have no faith in the integrity of the CDC and the FDA. They are doing all they can to protect themselves and Big Pharma from the truth; that the autism epidemic is caused by Big Pharma's greed and the failure of the CDC and the FDA to do their jobs.

2. Big Pharma must not be allowed to evade its financial liability for the damage their vaccines have caused. Like the tobacco companies in the last century, which kept denying the cigarette-lung cancer link, the drug companies are lying, with the help of the CDC and FDA, about the role of vaccines in causing the autism's epidemic. When the lung cancer cases finally got to court, the truth came out. We parents insist on our right to hold the drug companies liable, in court, for the harm they have caused. The matter must be decided fairly in the legal system, and not by loophole riders exonerating the drug companies that have been added to appropriation bills in the dark of night. The drug companies caused the autism epidemic and they, not the parents nor the public, must pay the costs. They are guilty, they are very profitable and can and should be held accountable.

Very Sincerely,

Bernard Rimland, Ph.D., Director
Autism Research Institute
