Unavoidably Unsafe

I've been back from the Autism One conference in Chicago for about a week and I'm still on a high!  Before I left I was down and out about autism, vaccine injury, diet, and anyone understanding me anymore.  I was sick of having to explain myself over and over and over again to family and friends who just think I'm crazy and cast negative judgement towards me as a mother.  Now that I'm back I'm more confident than ever in my parenting and the choices I've made for my children!  There were thousands of other parents who experienced the same issues I have, watched the same things happen as I have, and were helping their children get better.  Ever since Haiden's diagnoses and our road to recovery I've felt that I'm suppose to do something with this experience.  Maybe it was to just tell our story so that maybe I can save one other child but I have a drive to do more. 
Even though I was crazy busy photographing the conference I did get to sit in and listen to speakers I wanted to hear.  I learned so much from Law Day with Mary Holland that I had to share!
1. Did you know that the U.S. law states that vaccines are "unavoidably unsafe"? Hmmm, bet your not going to hear any doctor tell you that?!
2. There is a Vaccine Injury Court that has no due process, no jury, and no cross examination.  Sounds fair to me! (Insert sarcasm)
3. There is a 1986 Vaccine Injury Compensation Program that has compensated over 2,500 families since 1990.  In order to be compensated you have to go through Vaccine Injury Court which is almost impossible.  You also have to have hard core evidence.  How many of you are taking before and after pictures/videos of your children when they get shots?
4. There are over 11,000 cases awaiting Vaccine Injury Court.
Now, I'm not a doctor, I'm not a lawyer, and I know little about politics but to me this is worrisome.  If vaccines were so safe, and it is okay to give our children over 30 doses of vaccines by 3 years of age, then why does the U.S. law state that vaccines are "unavoidably unsafe"?  Why is there a Vaccine Injury Court?  Why is there a Vaccine Injury Compensation Program?  Why are there so many cases awaiting to be heard in Vaccine Injury Court? 
When vaccines where first considered effective living conditions were much different.  There wasn't proper trash removal, there wasn't proper transportation of food, there weren't waste treatment plants like today, and sanitation standards were different.  History has shown that diseases come and go even without vaccines.
There aren't any studies that shows the health of unvaccinated vs. vaccinated children.  There aren't any studies that show what can happen to our children when they have 30 doses of vaccines.  All our government keeps doing is adding more and more vaccines to the vaccine schedule.  All I keep hearing about is how Autism, ADHD, ADD, and allergies have increased by 400%!
Now, there are some of you out there who will say, "Well there have been studies that show there is no link between autism and vaccines."  Let me tell you what is wrong with those studies.  For one, they were funded by the vaccine makers themselves so there is a HUGE conflict of interest.  For two, they only tested one vaccine (MMR) and one vaccine ingredient (thimerisol).  You have no idea what all those chemicals can do to your child. You want to see what they are injecting your child with?  Take a look here, straight from the CDC, http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/excipient-table-2.pdf.
Also, the government is currently paying millions of your tax dollars to 83 known, and I emphasis known, families who have children with vaccine injury and autism. http://video.foxnews.com/v/4687300/. 
Like I said, I know little about politics but I feel like the only way changes are going to be made is if we go to the people who can change the law.  The Canary Party was launched two weeks ago and I am getting involved.  I feel that I can help make a difference and save other children.  If you are interested or would like more information, I encourage you to visit, www.canaryparty.org.

Dr. Wakefield and I.  I respect this man even more now that I had the chance to meet and talk with him!


  1. Love your passion sister...love you!

  2. From one crazy mom to another.....Keep on trucking. I feel like I have to tell others of our journey too...even though my son is not fully recovered yet. We are doing chelation.
