Remember the 2005 Danish study on thimerasol & autism? It seems the author is a tad corrupt...

10. Most. Wanted.

Meanwhile, the lead author of the Wakefield study has been exonerated of any wrong doing.

Which exonerates all authors associated with the study.


Yep.

"... a man sees what he wants to see and ignores the rest."

Man, or woman, it doesn't seem to matter. It seems some prefer to be told what to do by some authority structure rather than think for themselves, and furthermore want others under the same tyranny they crave.

Behold the death of the U.S.A. Whether we give terrorists credit for the death of freedom in the US, or attribute it elsewhere, freedom is equally ill and dying, and when all is said and done it is "We the People" who are to blame.

Should the state should mandate immunizations for your children? Do you feel they are safe for all children. Do they cause other health issues like autism? Should the state also pay for them as well if they are requiring them?
it is the law to get theshots for your kids

This is a very good informative video. I doubt you'll agree with it. Pot smokers, I've found, are very closed-minded. They will argue in favor of its use no matter how many scientific facts are presented to them.

Yep.
POUL THORSEN is a wanted fugitive & the researcher who authored 21 of the 24 government studies that the CDC says prove vaccines don't cause autism.

He stole over a million of the research money (U.S. tax dollars), was indicted on 22 counts of Wire Fraud & Money laundering, committed forgery, purchased a new home, a Harley, an Audi, an SUV, and fled -- yet the CDC continues to base their claim of no link on his research.

He is top on the list of the Inspector General's "Most Wanted" list.

Still think vaccines don't cause autism?
its the law

My 5 month old has not received any vaccinations. We go to her pediatrician regularly who supports our decision. I have an 8yr old step son with autism that seemed to develop post MMR vaccination. I think the government tells us what to do enough as it is. This should always be a choice for parents. Every time our children get vaccinated we sign a form stating we can't sue if our kids are harmed or die..... They have found mercury in shots in the past.... How do we know what's really in the vaccines. I can put a label on a bottle of alcohol and call it water... Why should we trust these money hungry drug companies?

how are you going to enroll your kids in school with no shots ever been given? you are being selfish not getting the shots your kid is at risk and any other kid that they are around

It is law in TN. Your child can't enroll in school without proof of immunizations, been law for a while.

Also, if you don't want your child to have immunizations, you should be forced to home school. I do not want my children exposed to all those horrid diseases, because you don't believe in it, that's just stupid!

As for the lawsuit argument, we already know the people that don't want their child inoculated don't have a pot to piss in, so why should we be forced to live by the decisions of the opposition?

Two words 'Freedom and Liberty.' Please research the pros and cons bout vaccinations. Do y'all really think a baby strait its mother's womb need to be vaccinated against a sexual (hepatitis B) disease? Can we not wait until the babies immune system kicks in like we to with puppies.
Please educate yourself about vaccinations before deciding what you think others should do.
Did y'all know that autism was unheard of before the 70's... It's not just autism either it's autoimmune disease, neurological problems, so-called attention deficit disorder, and many many other problems.
Big Pharma pumps a lot of money into our congressmen's pockets just so they can make tons of money pushing crap that they don't even know that works.
Ask yourselves why Dr. Oz recommends vaccinations for your kids, yet refuses to give them to his own??????????
