The thing that makes this book moving is the stories from the parents. The stories of parents that their child had a negative reaction after receiving a vaccination. Part of it was describing the parent/doctor trust that was betrayed; the doctors and nurses gave the injection(s) then denied that the after-effects were a consequence of the shot, They told the parent not to worry or blamed them for being a bad parent; all this while the child is suffering temporary damage, permanent damage or will die.
A documentary was made about vaccine damage and had a very limited release; however, enough parents saw it to spread the word. All of these parent that had children damaged by vaccines and were told that the vaccine was not responsible recognized the story too well. The parents were furious and looking for some pay back for the evil that had been done to their child. These parents banded together to fight back.
After many years of saying that the pertussis vaccine was safe and that the parents were wrong to blame their misfortune on the vaccine; the pertussis vaccine was weakened/attenuated.
The government has recently done the same thing for the MMR vaccine. After many years of saying that the vaccine was safe and not responsible for the children that developed autism after receiving it; they removed the mercury from the vaccine after enough people were upset about it. I know someone that this happened to. They took their healthy, happy, and smart baby to the doctor for the (necessary) MMR vaccine then watched the spark of intelligence fade from his eyes after receiving the shot. This happened in California. The parents did not know that they had the legal right to exempt their child from vaccination; however, they would have probably given him the shot anyways. They believed that children should be vaccinated and that they would be irresponsible as parents if they did not give their child the vaccines to protect him against disease. What a hard way to learn that vaccines are not safe. Further study reveals that the vaccines are not even effective; these toxins are being injected into our children so some people can make a profit. They are also being injected because the parents do not want to be different than the rest of the sheep herd. It takes resolve to be different from the group and be called crazy. The media really helps reassure the sheep; they blame any outbreaks of a virus on the un-vaccinated. To find out if you can exempt your children go to NVIC.ORG; they display what the laws are in each state.
NVIC.ORG was the result of parents banding together to fight against the DPT vaccine; in fact, the original name for the organization was Dissatisfied Parents Together. They were responsible for the governments formation of the vaccine injury act and the organization that handles vaccine injury claims. This is touted as a victory in the book; however, the government has merely assumed the financial responsibility (with our tax dollars) for the vaccine manufactures and the doctors that administer the shots.
This book will break your heart, make you furious and change your life. One reason that people continue giving vaccines to their children (even after someone like me warns them) is that their entire belief system is threatened. All of their lives they have been told by doctors, nurses and the government that vaccines were safe. Most of us believe that doctors and nurses are good people who only want to do the best for us and our children. To think that a doctor or nurse would knowingly or unknowingly do something that would damage our precious children is unthinkable. A baby is a miracle; all of our hopes and love in a tiny little bundle. We offer our precious bundle into the hands of these people we trust. This offering is not intended to be a sacrifice. The USA is the greatest nation on earth; we are the good guys; we saved the world during WW2. How could it be possible that our government would willingly allow many of our children to be damaged or killed each year? How could our beliefs have been so wrong for all of our lives? I have multiple copies of this book. I give them to parents that I want to educated about vaccinations. I recommend that you do the same. SDSerf
