I'm sorry for your loss, but doctors were not to blame for your child's death. And telling people not to get their children vaccinated is a selfish, dangerous thing to do. Do you want every parent to suffer as you have suffered? Do you have any idea the kind of diseases and deaths that modern vaccines have practically made extinct? Ask your grandparents how many of their friends developed polio and spent their lives crippled or in iron lung wards. Take a look at the infant mortality statistics for 100 years ago, or 50 years ago, or heck even 20 years ago and compare them to today's.
It should be the parents choice!

Also they didn't admit it but the doctors at children's said that it was probably too early to give him his shots and that's why it happened. We should have waited a few more months.

stop taking the tainted vaccines if you want to stop getting cancer and having mentally challenged children.

It's hard enough to see a young child suffer a cold, why would anyone want their child to have whooping cough, mumps, measles, or ruebella? The cause of autism is unknown, how can they say having immunazation shots has anything to do with a child having autism? Makes absolutely no sense.

Well instead of worrying every time your child or children are sick do not feel pity constantly for them. Every single time your child fights off a cold by "their means" instead of inducing medicine, that child's immune system becomes stronger and stronger.So literally look at it as, no matter how hard it is, "my child is becoming stronger and stronger". Instead of the OH MY GOD NOT MY BABY! WE GOT TO FIX YOU, LETS FORCE FEED EVERYTHING THE DOCTOR SAYS DOWN YOUR THROAT, cause they SAID TO!" Yes I know it is hard knowing and watching your child suffer from cold and flus and some cases even worse sicknesses. But just remember it really is ok, it teaches them to be "tougher" at a younger age, and can handle sicknesses way better when they become older. Once they do get older they will say to themselves either say "meh this is not so bad, it will be over soon" or " MOM!!!!!! or DAD!!!! HELP!! im SICK!!

Every single time you use hand sanitizer you actually end up "hurting or weakening" your immune system. Our bodies regardless of age have ONE hell of a defense to sicknesses, and each time we use medicines we actually cripple our ability to fight off sicknesses better and better.

A proven fact that many doctors will NEVER admit to, for the simple reason of losing business. Is that you can actually cure your own body of diseases and cancers. Our bodies are amazing healing "machines". We put WAY too much faith in our doctors and their abilities. You got to remember they have their jobs to MAKE money also.

If you have never heard of the placebo effect before, look into it. Its a proven fact that our own mind and body can cure things out of this world and destroy diseases. There is no need to become a germaphobe" by any means, lots of people do not realize, when you are washing or sanitizing your hands alone, you are creating the mental blueprint that your "saving" yourself from all kinds of sicknesses. So in return your are tricking yourself and your brain is literally just putting out the extra enzymes to fight germs,bacteria and so on, every time you wash your hands alone. That process carries through all the way up to, going to the doctor and you think that you his remedies are what is really "healing" you and your children. Now do not get me wrong and say doctors methods are purely a sham or out to just "get you". Some doctors are wonderful "healers" and can do wonders for you. But the majority of so many ales and sicknesses comes from your own weakened immune systems, and you have THE ability to heal yourself.

YOU do not have to get your child vaccinated, their is many of waivers and petitions in effect, but it is LITERALLY not a law that ANYONE can enforce. You truly believe your going to children are going to be neglected of a REAL LAW of education, cause of not getting some funky ass shots? You can be your own childs worse enemy when it comes to their own health. Stop worrying when you hear stories on the news, cause they are based on shit media sources and even worse research.

You are 100% right. I started training my son to be resistant to falls by pushing him off of higher and higher things. He made it all the way up to 25 feet before he broke his neck. As soon as he gets out of rehab he's going to drive his wheelchair off fall creek falls.

Sir Unknown:

I applaud you and your posts. Am posting this just to show you - from a doctor's daughter ...that there ARE people waking up. Me for one. Never in a million yrs would I have EVER dreamed that I would go against the things my father believed in/practiced. It took a long time - but I am truly awake now. God rest his soul but I knew he
was only trYing to help . He loved people... He didn't realize what ALL was up with the FDA and big pharma , I assure you...

Anyway... applause!!!
Keep up the good work in trying to educate others of the vaccine dangers, ETC!

Listen to the man, folks!

Excellent point and I agree. We had to pay for our childrens' vaccinations. I never thought someone else should foot the bill. With parenthood comes responsibility and it's a big one!

This toxic winner-take-all politics has been complicated by a corporate mainstream media largely complicit with a right that has the deep pockets to keep the mainstream media afloat with hefty advertising revenue, and an American public that is, generally speaking, of limited education (the phrase “dumbed down” is repeated often of late) and given to manipulation because it tends to operate more on belief and myth than facts. Many voters are simply poorly informed. While a large number of U.S. citizens are angry and loudly belligerent, another large number are apathetic. A third group appear to be confused. Suggestions have been made that today’s United States shares uncomfortable similarities with the Weimar Republic that preceded the Third Reich.
Americans are noted for their “hating politics” but yet are quick to express heated political opinions. For example, they are not shy about their opinions about economics. They don’t seem to fully appreciate the cause of the current fiscal crisis that began in late 2007. The United States shows all the signs of an oligarchy, and it is seeing the most severe economic inequality in its history. Its economy is under siege, yet very few voters have had exposure to economics, its history or any other history. The fine points of such economic terms as aggregate demand and supply and demand elude them and they seem to embrace the myth of “trickle down” economics, and appear not to know that it is the middle class that drives the U.S. economy. Further, the public is unaware that America’s Great Middle Class was not a natural outgrowth of the nation’s economic system. It was, as Robert Parry has pointed out:“the creation of the federal government and especially the New Deal” of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Americans have what has been called terminal historical amnesia, but they also seem oblivious to current conditions resulting from the Great Recession. A 2012 study reveals that almost half of all Americans are dying virtually penniless.
The right-wing extremist party of authoritarians has been working to disenfranchise American voters and they are spending millions of dollars to buy the 2012 elections. The 5-4 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in January 2010: Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that held that corporations are citizens has permitted a flooding of corporate money that corrupts our electoral process (already imperfect) on an unimagined scale. Money is suffocating our politics and our very democracy.

Right...like pertussis is the REAL sickness to worry about...Why dont you actually read what the vaccine ALONE can do, that "protects" your child from, a bad coughing disease.

Vaccines and modern medicine is what destroys, immune systems and creates WAY worse diseases down the road for children. I have no idea how civilizations even made it, without "super" shots from doctors? Crazy to think about all the healthy children that made it,without receiving any immunizations at all huh? Or maybe you could reply, what about polio? I would recommend looking back at that very disease and learning its true origins or any disease(s) you may use to differ my "opinion".

What happens when children collect ignorance of parents, and are shown only biased ways of thinking?..False hopes,boundary lines,racism,political ties,man made religions,fears, and so many absent minded thought processes. Not saying you are providing such environments, but based on your comments it sounds to me, your doing some of those exact things.

That is a VERY deadly and unproductive future citizen, which can do way more damage than any disease known to man.

Where do you think ALL of these diseases come from? Guess they just appear from thin air? Or maybe a magical dirty fan, blows it them across the country? About 90% of "diseases" are self inflicted or made in a fucking lab, by our very own "medicine providers". Im not into a giant conspiracy, im living in the giant conspiracy of people who will literally, believe ANYTHING they are told by ANY source. Self preservation has turned into, blind immoral reasoning with major ego inflation.

If anymore questions, then by all means ask, or if you would like to retort with knowledge then im your "huckleberry".

Critical Thinking 101 - Provided by legit research and a open mind.

Filtered and spat out by an obnoxious asshole, with nothing but positive intentions and willpower, that will hopefully be heard in the background, of all the front runners, who have been trying to warn the masses for decades now.

I only want truth and compassion from every human. If it takes "deep" cuts in a humans ego to get there, then by all means hand me the scalpel.

Take care and much love

13 Sep – Two years ago, Jim West (HARPUB) predicted the link between whooping cough (pertussis) outbreaks and pesticide spraying; noting that, in California, counties that have no quarantine or spray programs report no incidents of pertussis, while counties that have such programs do (see chart).

Last month, Dallas-Fort Worth officials began spraying programs to combat an alleged West Nile outbreak and, as West predicted, Pertussis cases were reported.

I think yes shots should be mandated for the health and safety of our children. In the past 2 months children have gone over sea's and come back w/ whopping cough and mumps because those countries don't mandate or can't afford shots. I watched a program that said they did research on shots and autism they said the shots had nothing to do w/ it. I don't know if they do or not but seems to me if they did more kids would get autism especially since the shots now are the shots our parents and we got. When you decide to have children you take on their wants and needs no the government shouldn't have to pay for anybody's kids. The parents should pay for their health care, food, education, etc that's most of the problem w/ government today ppl except the government to pay for everything which is us the tax payers not the government.
The shots they give children nowdays ARE NOT THE SAME as what they gave to us in the 60's, 70's. Now they are putting mercury in them, along with other things that we don't need, or has anything to do with what they are trying to control. Don't be ignorant folks, do your homework. Don't just ask your doctor about whats in these shots, they are all for giving shots.

If you want the truth about whats in the immunizations these days, ask a Chiropractor.
