Why Giving the Flu Vaccine During Pregnancy Doesn’t Make Any Sense #Vaccines #Adverse Reactions To Vaccines #Mandated Vaccines

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice (ACIP) recommends flu vaccination during all trimesters of pregnancy.

However, according to a report published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, this recommendation is unjustified, unwise, and should be withdrawn.

Citing ACIP’s own sources, as well as current literature, the report based its conclusions on the following findings:

  • Flu infection is rarely a threat during normal pregnancy.
  • There is no “convincing evidence” that the flu vaccination is effective during pregnancy.
  • Studies have not adequately assessed the risk of flu vaccination during pregnancy.
  • Thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative present in most flu vaccines, has been linked to neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism, in humans.
  • Thimerosal has been linked to a number of animal reproductive toxicities including teratogenicity, mutagenicity and fetal death…

FDA Pertussis Vaccine Study Shatters Illusion of Vaccine-Induced Immunity #Vaccines #Mandated Vaccines #Adverse Reactions To Vaccines

November 10, 2013

By Barbara Loe Fisher

It was 1977 when I found out I was going to become a Mom. I instinctively knew I needed to be careful while I was pregnant, especially during the first two trimesters when the major organ systems of the fetus develop at a rapid rate. In the 1960’s there had been a lot of publicity about babies dying or being born without arms or legs because women had taken a drug (Thalidomide) for morning sickness in the first or second trimester of pregnancy1 and I wanted to make sure I did everything I could to protect my health and the health of my baby before and after he was born.

Mothers to be in my generation were told to take extra vitamins and eat nutritious food but, most of all, to avoid anything that could harm the developing fetus like alcohol, cigarette smoke, medications, radiation, household cleaning products and other toxic exposures. Some of us were aware of the risks of heavy anesthesia during delivery and signed up for Lamaze classes to prepare for a drug-free birth, which many obstetricians discouraged, and we chose to breastfeed, even though a lot of pediatricians were pushing formula and bottles back then…

  There is a lot of wisdom to be gained from individuals that have witnessed changes in standard health recommendations over the decades without a vested interest.  I once heard the suggestion, “If you want to be good at something then study from those who are successful at that particular skill.” This quote sounds like the obvious but how often do “experts” rely on a biased, financially lucrative view or put trust and base their word on organizations that with a small amount of research prove questionable? I would think when giving health advice to pregnant woman that it should truly be the best and proven healthy advice.

Q & A Cont. With Alan Philips Esq. #Vaccines #Mandated Vaccines #Vaccine Exemptions

Very fascinating material today and all week.  Thank you Mr. Phillips for your time in this area.  What a great value this has been to all of us.  We look forward to your future Q & A participation.

Q:   Can you complete waivers if you want to pick and choose which vaccinations your pet undergoes?

Illinois

A:  About a dozen states have medical exemptions for dogs, but that’s it. Pets don’t have religious beliefs, and they are considered “chattel”—property—under the law, for the most part. But first, determine what vaccines are required by law and which ones are merely recommended (for your veterinarian’s and big pharma’s financial gain). Beyond that, it’s probably up to a vet to decide, though the option to pick and choose could vary from state to state depending on the specific wording of each state’s laws.

   Very few states allow “pick and choose” for school exemptions. While such an option might be inferred in any state with a philosophical exemption, if it’s not clearly spelled out, you can’t necessarily make the assumption that it’s a legal option. Similarly, delayed vaccines, even where supported by a doctor, may not be a legal option. Remember—we don’t get to decide how to interpret the law—that’s the job of the courts. So, if you’re not sure about the interpretation of your state’s law, consider consulting an attorney about the matter. Every state has “statutory construction” rules or laws that explain how to interpret each state’s statutes. Legally, either those rules and/or legal precedent will answer the question; and if there is a formal dispute, then a judge may ultimately have to decide.

   I really like what Colorado has, a form that allows you to check exactly which vaccines you are refusing, and to indicate whether or not the refusal is for religious or philosophical reasons. You can’t get much more flexible than that! Odd, though, that Colorado state law also requires healthcare workers to get flu vaccines and offers *no* exemption option for that. There is a right to refuse for religious reasons, however, under federal civil rights law.

Q:   How is the vaccine court different from other U.S. courts?

A:   The “vaccine courts” are a division of the Court of Federal Claims that address only vaccine injury compensation claims, and nothing else. They have “special masters” instead of judges, and have their own unique procedural rules. They are the only option vaccine victims have for any kind of compensation for their injury, or their families for their death when a vaccines kills someone. At last check, only about 26% of applicants get compensated. The system was created by the National Childhood Injury Compensation Act of 1986, and supposedly to make it easier for vaccine victims to get compensation, but in practice it has become harder and harder to get compensation, and instead of being much quicker than state courts, it can take much longer, from what I’ve heard. Still, the system pays out $100 million annually, and this is despite the fact that the FDA and CDC say that only 1 – 10% of serious adverse events ever get reported in the first place. So, the system is, at least in the minds of vaccine injury advocates, in dire need of revision. A recent hearing to review the problems was postponed…

   Payouts from this system are posted on the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program’s (VICP’s) website: http://www.hrsa.gov/vaccinecompensation/index.html (go to data and statistics, link on the left)

TRUTH IN SCIENCE, TRUE SCIENCE IN LAW

Q & A Cont. With Alan Phillips Esq. #Vaccines #Mandated Vaccines #Vaccine Exemptions

Q:    What errors in regards to vaccinations are most common in triggering legal issues?

Texas

A:    By far, proceeding on your own without first learning about your rights! Vaccine are required for school (public, private, home, military), in the military (members, families, civilian contractors), with immigration—at least the legal immigrants (also includes foreign adoption), at work (primarily healthcare workers at this time, but DHHS plans to vaccinate *all* US employees with the flu vaccines, and there are over *270 new vaccines* already seeking FDA approval or in clinical trials to follow that one!)—sometimes required by employers, and sometime by state law…

   The biggest problems usually concern religious exemptions, in situations where you have to state your beliefs (sometimes you do, sometimes you don’t). If you do, consult with a knowledgeable attorney *before* you submit your statement of beliefs. In my experience, most people who do this on their own fall into one or more legal pitfalls, because the law in this area isn’t consistent with most people’s common sense approach. Where I see the greatest need for legal assistance is with employees, immigrants, in the military, with college students doing healthcare curriculums that require doing clinical work in local facilities (state laws don’t apply in this situation), and with parents in custody disputes (in my experience with family law attorneys around the U.S., family law attorneys don’t know how to approach parent/child-custody vaccine disputes; there are legal arguments unique to this situation).

   Unfortunately, people often mistake what they think their rights *should* be with what they actually are. For example, with vaccines, we don’t have a legal right to decide what goes into our body, despite how strongly you or I feel that we should. So, as with any important legal issue, find out as much about your rights as you can BEFORE you act.

   My e-book provides information to enable you to learn about vaccine exemption and waiver law, so you can make informed exemption decisions: http://vaccinerights.com/e-book.html

Q:   If you have been fully inoculated and the military loses your vaccination record is there anything you can do in order to avoid being inoculated again?

Hawaii

A:   Exercise an available exemption if you can. I expect that the military would see nothing wrong with vaccinating you again “just to be sure…” The military offers medical and administrative exemptions, and the latter includes religious exemptions. There are multi-branch regulations, and some branch-specific regulations.

   This can be tricky; most people in the military think there aren’t any exemptions, and they will not always cooperate with you. I got the Navy to agree to change their unlawful policy and banch-specific regulations, but they never followed through with that. So, it’s really hard to get an exemption there without my help, as you have to not only have a legally sound statement of beliefs, you have to go to the right person who has authority to tell your superior to allow you to have the exemption despite the (unlawful) regulations whose requirements are very hard to meet. Here’s an article about my experience with the Navy: http://www.naturalnews.com/032184_vaccine_exemptions_Navy.html

Q & A Cont. With Alan Phillips Esq. #Vaccines #Vaccine Exemptions #Mandated Vaccines

Q:  What is the process to add a philosophical exemption to one’s state?

Utah

A.   The specific procedure varies from state to state and can most likely be found on your state’s legislative website. In general, whenever you have a legislative concern, it’s highly recommended to schedule a face-to-face meeting with your representative, as letters and emails will get lost in the shuffle unless they come in by the thousands. You should also prepare a concise, bullet-point list of facts with cites (references to the medical literature, etc.) to go over briefly and leave with your representative. Finally, read this article for persuasive information you can use:

Q:  How can you verify that there is a genuine and significant outbreak when the local school sends a letter attesting to an outbreak with a suggestion of immediate vaccination?

Texas

A:  Call the local health department. While there’s no guarantee that they will always know or be forthcoming if they do know, you can ask questions like, “Can you confirm the local outbreak reported in ?”  Were the disease cases confirmed by laboratory specimens? What was the vaccination status of the diseased persons, and was this confirmed?”

Q & A with Alan Phillips, Esq. #Vaccines #Vaccine Exemptions #Mandated Vaccines

This week we are featuring Q & A’s in regards to vaccine legal questions.  We have the U.S. legal expert to answer these questions.

Please leave your name and/or where you are from in your comments and I will forward on to Mr. Phillips.

Following the Q & A’s, I have posted Mr. Phillips background.  I know he has been involved internationally, so feel free to ask questions that pertain to your area.

Answers are for educational purposes only and are not intended to constitute legal advice.

Q:    In hopes of bypassing harmful fillers can a homeopathic vaccine be in used in place of the vaccines offered at the health department?

From SLC, Utah

A:   To the best of my knowledge, homeoprophylaxis – the use of specific homeopathic remedies in the same function as immunizations – is not a legal option anywhere in the U.S. that vaccines are required. However, it can be a useful adjunct for those exercising a legal exemption who want something more to protect themselves or their children from infectious disease than good nutrition, vitamin supplements (many doctors recommend C and D in particular), etc. See this article about how Cuba used homeoprophlyaxis with 2.5 million citizens to address a leptospirosis outbreak in the fall of 2008—they has substantially better results than with immunizations for a fraction of the cost, and homeopathy doesn’t injure or kill anyone!

Q:    Are there situations when waivers are acceptable to WHO when entering countries that require vaccines?  If so, what is the process?

Anonymous

A:    Vaccines for international travel are governed by the World Health Organization’s International Health Regulations:

http://www.who.int/ihr/publications/9789241596664/en/index.html

   The only required vaccine is for yellow fever, for travelers going in and out of countries in sub-Saharan Africa and tropical South America. Unfortunately, the only recognized exemption is medical. The CDC recommends a boatload of other vaccines for international travel, but they are only recommendations, not requirements. If an employer is requiring vaccines for work-related travel, you can probably avoid them under federal civil rights law. However, there is not an exemption per se, only a right to religious freedom more generally, so it’s best to work with an experienced attorney in that situation.

A little about our Q & A participant today.

Alan Phillips, J.D. is a leading U.S. vaccine rights attorney. He advises individuals, families, attorneys, groups and organizations throughout the U.S. on vaccine exemption and waiver rights; supports legislative initiatives aimed at expanding vaccine freedom of choice; is published internationally on vaccine health and legal matters; and appears regularly at rallies, conferences, and on radio discussing vaccine rights issues.  Alan co-hosts weekly radio shows broadcast on BlogTalkRadio, Freedomizer Radio, and Natural News Radio, where he discusses vaccine rights issues. Alan is also a regularly featured writer for Natural News, GreenMedInfo.com, Liberty Roundtable, and the Pastoral Medical Association.

          Alan is a Board Member of the American Holistic Medical Association, the World Association for Vaccine Education, and the Pastoral Medical Association; an Advisory Board Member of the American Chiropractic Autism Board; a co-founder of North Carolina’s Citizens for Healthcare Freedom; an Associate and Legal Advisor to Source Force, Inc. (a caring ministry for poverty AIDS and terminal cancer victims); and an Advisory Counsel Member of Thai Healing Alliance International.

         Over the years Alan has helped clients secure vaccine exemptions in a wide variety of settings, including schools (public, private, home and military), colleges, the military (members, families, civilian contractors), immigration (including foreign adoption), healthcare and other employees, and parents in vaccine custody disputes. Alan’s e-book, The Authoritative Guide to Vaccine Legal Exemptions, is the only publication that provides authoritative, accurate, in-depth information about how state and federal laws interact with individual circumstances to form the precise boundaries of each person’s legal right to refuse vaccines. His Vaccine Rights website is the only Internet site dedicated solely to vaccine legal exemptions and waivers. Alan also spearheaded the Pandemic Response Project (PReP), a national initiative aimed at reforming state laws across the U.S. that currently provide for vaccines to be mandated *without exemptions* during declared emergencies and non-vaccinated persons to be quarantined in government facilities against their will.

Alan’s “Dispelling Vaccination Myths” article was published around the world and translated into Russian, Chinese, and several European languages in the late 1990’s. It has been used in medical school classrooms in three different countries, appears on websites around the world, and has appeared in publications including an Australian grassroots newsletter, Indian homeopathic journals, the Hindustan Times, and American and European magazines. Alan’s more recent publications include vaccine legal articles published in The Townsend Letter, The American Chiropractor, and the North Carolina Chiropractic Association‘s HealthTrek Magazine. (see articles)

          Finally, Alan is an accomplished professional singer-songwriter, composer, and producer. His performances of original songs on piano and 12-string acoustic guitar have received standing ovations at seven international conferences, while sales of original music have gone to citizens from countries on six continents. His first music video production, Destiny Freedom! (“For we must be the masters of our destinies!”), has received a strong, positive response from freedom advocates, while a prior music production, Share Your Light, stands as a possible theme song for the vaccine rights movement, ending with the prophetic words, “Share Your Light, let your truth be unfurled; One by one, we are freeing the world…”
