<quoted text> As others have already stated this topix forum is supposed to be discussing immunizations for our children and what we think of the government forcing us to do so. NOT to talk about how other people spell,how their grammar is,or what you personaly think about anyone involved in this topic. As I said the important topic here is our children. So if you don't have anything to say about this matter maybe you should find a topic discussing spelling,grammar,and maybe read a little bit of the bible. DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU.....
I would rather not mix religion in with government affairs. I follow the mindset of our founders. please leave religious affiliation out of the this. Statistics tell us that diseases such as influenza have sharply declined. Any secondary or unknown effects apart from allergies to these immunizations are purely speculatory and are not grounded in scientific fact. I, too, think about the children, and I would rather not have poor children die of diseases that should be eliminated due to current medical progress. I call into question the judgement of those who honestly believe that immunizations hurt children more than they help them, as many who have spent their entire lives studying medicine say otherwise.

Well it is your own personal opinion not to mix religion with government affairs. Personaly I think the government might need some religion... But as far as these posts go I'll agree that religion isn't gonna help with this topic.an maybe I need to correct myself. I did not mean that I thought these immunizations hurt our children more than helped them. i just really don't think they are giving us all of the facts. whether they are good or bad. An I don't think by any means that our government should force us to do anything especialy involving our children. As I've stated before my children have been immunized BUT that was by my own choice NOT because my government forced me to..

Yet another popular vaccine is killing children in India and Vietnam. Here's the proof:

Perhaps, but I notice you did not say I'm wrong on any point, nor have you presented anything contrary to anything I've said. Of course, whatever you may present would also have to be backed up.

Hmmm. If I'm arrogant, I can only say that I sure wish more people were like me. We wouldn't be in the fix we're in if more would stand up and speak out. Doesn't matter if we agree or not, what matters is the willingness to stand up for what we believe in, and be willing to change if/when we're proven wrong. This quality is called "Humility" or more clearly "Teachable".

Seriously, people better get off their butts and start doing some research. These vaccines are full of poisons and other ingredients. One look at what they are really doing here should wake you up!

Though the founders may have kept religions out, they all understood that the Constitutional Republic they were forming was inadequate for any other than a moral society based on Christian principles. The First Amendment was actually the brain-child of a minister in New England {New Hampshire I think}.

If they choose not to allow their children to be vaccinated, is that reason enough for them to be forced into compliance, or stripped of their parental rights?

Many of your further points may or may not be valid, but I would encourage you to dig a little deeper. Much of what you call speculation is rooted in research that is excluded in the US peer review pool. This is becoming more prevalent in more disciplines/fields.

A late friend of mine from Wales once told me of a study done on ground water around certain industrial plants owned by a major multi-national corporation that was polluted by a certain cocktail of waste chemicals. This cocktail feminized the indigenous species, increased the percentage of those born with both male and female organs resulting in neither functioning properly, and what males were left in the environment were apathetic at best toward propagating their species.

I'm thinking that maybe with several sets of eyes looking instead of just mine, maybe this research can be found again. The research was done independently as no corporation would have funded such research.

So was the investigation done in Wales? Or are we just supposed to scour the entire globe for your elusive study? Your talking big with your worldwide contacts, however you aren't giving anybody anything of real substance to go on. Just a story with bold claims. You GO know it all. Of course that's because you've done your homework. In grade school anyhow...

I agree, vaccines are very dangerous. They are NOT the same as the ones us older ppl got in gradeschool. Big Pharma even uses ones that have expired, and they also know how dangerous they are. Vaccines have killed alot of kids and damaged others. Big Pharma does not care. They are only in it for the money, and if it makes ppl sick all the better. They can make money with the drugs they use to "treat" these problems. There are natural cures for alot of things but Big Pharma and the FDA are trying their best to keep that info from the people. They are actually trying to make you have a prescription for vitamin C! Hemp seed oil can kill cancer tumors but it is against the law to grow hemp, even tho it won't get u high. Jeez, how much money do they want? All of it I would say. Dam creeps.

I'm with you on this. I just read Big Pharma is buying up supplement companies so I guess they do want it all and of course do away with their competition.Then you have the government agencies suckin up to these crooks and it's getting like a bad dream.

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?
I don't believe these vaccines are safe for children. Genetics can be compared to a gun, and the environment is like the bullet firing. So no in many ways the vaccines don't cause the autism, and it can not unless you are pre-disposed for it on a different level.

The vaccines we get today are much more harmful, and there is so much money behind each of these vaccines the drug companies are not going go down without a fight. How many times have you seen a drug pass the FDA only to be pulled years later after the general public starts having casualties?

In Wales? I don't think so, but the UK was part of the research. Do I recall which country? No, if I had I'd have included that info. I do remember that one of the prominent chemicals is also common around volcanoes; does that help any? I didn't think it would, but if it does, GREAT!

Global contacts? Duh, World Wide Web, MD. Nothing impressive about that at all any more.

Homework is an ongoing thing, and the responsibility of everyone that cares for their family and home. The burden of "keeping up" is on each one of us, so don't disparage others that do. If you were willing to keep up yourself, I think you'd show more respect, providing you understand what that is.
