Clearly the church was trying to gain notoriety for themselves off of Wakefield, he probably attends the church and paid them for that sermon. Nowhere does the Bible advocate against seeking common-sense medical treatment, and what's really funny is how they back-tracked out the surmon and are sponsoring free vaccination clinics and urged all to show up and get their booster shots. They couldn't even stick to their own faith-healing beliefs!

In the end, yes, all agree there is no connection between vaccines and autism, and they don't support Wakefield's flawed study.

All Winnipeg has for evidence is some whale and youtubevideo's. Topix has had plenty of evidence just right here. But go ahead, be anti vaxxer. No one will care until you spread your germs.

Not only was Wakefield found guilty of fraud and uneeded medical tests, his study was funded by attorneys! No study is ever funded by attorneys in waiting to represent those within the study!
Not the truth

Wakefield was at Mind Institute of the University of California, Davis, 1999 where he jokingly described children fainting and vomiting after giving blood at his child's 19th birthday party of which he paid the children. This is on video, since at the time anti vaxxers posted every video about Wakefield that they could. Bit em in the butt. But Dr Wakefield told the GMC panel that he had made up these details to amuse his listeners. Imagine that. So he admits he lies. He later claimed that he had been “naive” to think he could take the samples without the permission of an ethics committee. So, he admits (or is lying again) he knows nothing about how to conduct a study.

This is their great guy! One who lies to them, and to the courts!

Prove it all. Links, witnesses everything. No you won't because you're a petty little liar who deals in rumour and lies not truth, reality or fact. Pathetic.

On 16 July 2007 a Fitness to Practise Panel considered the case of Dr Andrew Jeremy WAKEFIELD
GMC reference number: 2733564
http://www.scribd.com/doc/25983372/FACTS-WWSM...

Wakefields study technically really was a 'project'; not medical intervention.

It's 143 pages, but of most interest starts at page 4 through 55,(don't miss pages 49, 51 and 54) includes the famous birthday party, the patents and experimental product of
Wakefield's 'Transfer Factor', giving to Child 10 (page 52) and child 10's father was CEO of Immunospecifics Biotechnologies Ltd to specialise in the production, formulation and sale of Transfer Factor. Don't miss reading how a few of the children never had gastrointestinal issues and some never had a ASD diagnosis.
Plenty of great evidence.

Typical response. It's clear few if any anti vaxxers ever read the court documents, or they'd have a far better response. Had they, they'd see plenty of evidence against Wakefield was 'not proven', showing the court inded was not a 'kangaroo court'. Kangaroo courts find ALL the evidence proven! Lucky for Wakefield, the ruling outcome could have been far worse for him.

Bingo!
vaccines are causing all sort of diseases including autism. just read about how many parents lost their kid to vaccines after vaccination. and that wasnt month prior to or after vaccination, it is more like days AFTER VACCINATION. inform yourselves. these bozos have as objectif to describe vaccines as harmless so they can keep selling and profiting.
