Reasons not to vaccinate your child


by Rose Winters

When I was a child, there were 15 vaccines recommended before enrollment in kindergarten. Now if you follow the CDC’s recommendations, your child will receive 49. Why should parents be concerned by this? After all, the polio vaccine eradicated polio, right? The more vaccines the merrier right? Stop for a second and think about this. There has never been a study that shows the cumulative effect of this many vaccines on a human body, and the children receiving this many doses of vaccines, which contain ingredients that are known neuro-toxins are truly guinea pigs. Fast forward a few hundred years from now in the mind’s eye, and take a look at where we are going to be if we continue on this current trajectory. The vaccine manufacturers are developing new patents to vaccines at an alarming rate and the recommended boosters have increased in frequency to the degree that at some point, every child and adult will be required to get mutlitple vaccines a year.

20% of all corporate crime is now committed by pharmaceutical companies, and those are just the cases that are litigated and settled. The problem with corruption in scientific studies that are used to approve drugs do not even come up in litigation...In the past three and a half years alone (2009 to mid-2012), criminal and civil penalties have totaled $18bn, well over half the total for the past 21 years. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) topped the list of repeat offenders with total criminal and civil penalties of $7.56bn since 1991, comprised six different federal settlements and an additional number with states. Pfizer was the second highest with $2.96bn. Overall, since 1991, 11 other companies also had criminal or civil settlements or both exceeding $50m on at least two occasions. —Sidney M Wolfe, British Medical Journal

I can picture it now-- Advertisements to the tune of "Time for your summer/spring/fall/winter vaccine"--- Eventually, even that will be replaced by "Get your monthly vaccine"--- Where does it end?

When the pharmaceutical industry introduced the measles vaccine in 1963, measles was already on a sharp decline. This pattern is also true for other vaccines.

Why should we be concerned? A vaccine forces the immune system to bypass the part where the person gets sick as well as the natural processes that our immune systems have developed over the millennia to kill a virus and develop lifelong immunity. Injecting a child with a multi-dose vaccine like MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) or DTaP (Diptheria, Tetanus, Acellular Pertussis) and accompanying either of those with Hib, Varicella/Chicken Pox, Heb B, etc. in one Dr. visit, is forcing the child to produce immunity to all of these viruses at once, when these diseases would never have been encountered in that way in a natural environment. ~~Multiple injections are needed, and the immature infant must have these pathogens introduced out of nowhere into their bodies, when in a natural setting they would be introduced slowly, one at a time, (inhaled or introduced through the mouth) and handled entirely differently by the body.

The human body has co-evolved with these viruses and the human immune system is designed to get stronger with each interaction with any of these invaders. It was not designed to replicate and mimic these viruses all in one day when injected with weakened or dead versions.

By thinking that we can bypass nature’s design for a healthy immune system, we are creating a gene pool where no one has any natural (real) immunity against anything. It is getting to the point where it is almost criminalized if your child develops chicken pox, and who is to say that a human can even develop a healthy immune system without some of these triggers? What is the evolutionary purpose of viruses in the first place? Why has the human immune system adapted the ability to build lifelong immunity to specific viruses, and what happens when we replace that with artificial immunity which requires "boosters" since the immunity from the vaccines wanes over time?

At the present moment, intelligent people do not have their children vaccinated, nor does the law now compel them to. The result is not, as the Jennerians prophesied, the extermination of the human race by smallpox; on the contrary more people are now killed by vaccination than by smallpox. —George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950), the only person ever awarded a Nobel Prize and an Academy Award

Yes, it would be great if we could eliminate all disease, all childhood suffering, but that goes against all natural laws, and we should consider the purpose of viruses in the first place. We should also consider that viruses mutate in order to survive, and we are potentially creating “super bugs” to which no one has the ability to fight. What if mild childhood diseases like chicken pox are training the immune system so that it has experience when it comes into something more deadly? There are many doctors who are now beginning to question whether or not it is beneficial to the body to bypass the natural function of the immune system. To think that the "science is settled" is so far from the truth, but that doesn't mean the manufacturers (who oversee their own studies on their own products) will not use that as a selling point.

The pharmaceutical companies would like us to believe that health comes from an injection or can be swallowed in a pill. It would suit them just fine if every American were on prescription meds and took bi-annual injections to all the new vaccines in development, and boosters to the ones already received. When you look at the number of pills that have been recalled over the years that were once approved by the FDA, as well as the tweeks they have done on the vaccine schedule, (DTP was replaced with DTaP, oral polio vaccine was banned in the US after causing accute flacid paralysis, mercury was replaced with aluminum in most of the childhood vaccines) ~~all of this was done quietly, with no admission of guilt, they do not want to ruin their reputation by saying that they had to get these things off of the market because of the damage they had caused. There were no formal apologies for the numerous children injured by these vaccines that have since been taken off of the market.

The truth is, the science isn't settled. The truth is, there is a Bill sitting in the US Congress right now HR 1757 proposed to actually study vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children, but that Bill has been stalled, and likely will not be passed as the pharmaceutical companies have more lobbyists in Washington than any other industry. They will fight tooth and nail to keep a study of this nature from being conducted, because they already know that vaccines are incredibly damaging to developing children. They use the excuse that a study of this nature would be unethical because it would need to be a "double blind" study in which neither the doctors nor the parents would know if their child was vaccinated or not. This would mean that some parents who want to have their child vaccinated would not be able to, and some parents who do not want their child vaccinated would.

In this 2008 report, CBS’s Sharyl Attkisson discusses the conflicts of interest in those supposedly ‘independent’ sources that back the government’s assertion that vaccines and autism are not related. AAP, Every Child by Two and Dr. Paul Offit all receive hundreds in thousands of dollars in funding from Pharmaceutical companies that make vaccines, they do not disclose how much money they make, and yet claim that these huge sums of money in no way influence their stance on vaccine safety. Katie Couric was the news anchor in this report, and therefore is obviously familiar with these conflicts of interest in the pharmaceutical industry. —Sidney M Wolfe, British Medical Journal

Of course a double blind study is the most reliable study, but to use "ethics" as a reason to not do a study and continue to recommend the schedule is one of the most unethical things I have ever heard. (So rather than study the children who are already unvaccinated and allow parents to retain the freedom to decide for their children, they would rather push the vaccine schedule on everyone, with no study at all?) Yeah, real ethical. Of course that is all bullshit and everyone who conducts their own research into the vaccine ingredients knows it. Everyone with a vaccine injured child knows it. Everyone with a healthy unvaccinated child with none of these neuroligical, autoimmune disorders that has to fight to retain the freedom to choose for their child knows it...

The medical records of every child born in the US are now digital, there are databases that track vaccination rates. We have the technology to use the existing data to cross reference vaccination rates with autoimmune disorders, cancers, leukemia, autism, asthma, etc. Why do we never see any of this information to determine if these disorders are happening in children that are unvaccinated? ***They are pushing hard to eliminate unvaccinated children as a control group, so that one day everyone will believe that these disorders at these rates are just a part of the human condition--(and even now there are ignorant folks who think that something mysterious has happened to the human genome in the last 30 years or so)--- There is no mystery... We should be at the height of human evolution, and instead we have been led to believe that all of these disorders are genetic or inherited. Human evolution (or any type of cell based evolution) does not work that way. We were never meant to be reliant on the pharmaceutical companies to be healthy, but the number of children requiring continuous medical care is growing daily.

Big Pharma wants lifelong customers, giving every child a vaccine within 24 hours of birth goes a long way in creating a large customer base. Continuing the assault on the human body at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, and so on almost guarantees it.
Do not let your child become a statistic. Research the ingredients in vaccines, start with aluminum---


Every couple of months, there is a coordinated attempt to bring the vaccine debate into the national spotlight and create a sort of mass hysteria. With the failure of the flu vaccine, the recent hype about measles serves as a necessary diversion to draw the attention from the failing flu vaccine. This month measles, two months ago Ebola (the vaccine is conveniently sitting on the back burner waiting to be "fast tracked" for approval), next month when Gardasil 9 is scheduled to be released, it will be HPV and cervical cancer that make the headlines. The Disney connection with a cartoon Mickey with pink bumps on his face is perfect, it makes a great headline and stirs up a nice frenzy... They are depending on the masses that only skim headlines to react with fear and provoke them to attack those that do not vaccinate... In situations such as these, even if the majority of cases in the "outbreak" are vaccinated individuals, they will always blame the unvaccinated---

Vaccination is a barbarous practice and one of the most fatal of all the delusions current in our time. Conscientious objectors to vaccination should stand alone, if need be, against the whole world, in defence of their conviction. —Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

The reason they are stooping to this level is because there are so many people who have started researching vaccines, and decide that the risks of vaccination outweigh the benefits... They will continue to manipulate the masses with misinformation because when they stir up the debate, parents start to turn on other parents, which turns into people backing legislation which makes it harder for parents to opt out... When enough people are scared of mild childhood diseases, and think vaccines are safe, it makes it easier to push them on everyone... With the number of vaccine injured children growing daily, many parents with a vaccine injured child will not vaccinate their other children, and anyone who spends a significant amount of time researching vaccines will never go back to trusting the standard motto: "safe and effective"---

They must go to great lengths to keep up the illusion and generate these debates publicly and paint the unvaccinated children out as a threat...

Whether you're pro-vaccine, anti-vaccine, or fall somewhere in the middle, the questions you need to ask yourselves are as follows:

Do you want to live in a world, where you cannot freely refuse a medical procedure that carries risk of injury or death? I'm not questioning your comfort level with today's vaccine schedule, because today's vaccine schedule will change. New vaccines and additional doses are added all the time. children today receive as many as 49 doses of 14 vaccines before they reach age six, which is roughly 12 times higher than the number of vaccines administered to children back in 1940. With more than 220 new vaccines in the developmental pipeline for children and adults...and no end in sight..the question you must ask yourself is ARE YOU CERTAIN you will be 100% comfortable with vaccines that are added to the mandated list in the future?

If you say that yes, you're comfortable, then you're either

a) not expecting to be a parent or grandparent,

b) don't have to worry about it because your kids are grown and out of the house, or

c) lying to prove a point. No critical thinker, no honest person, would ever sign off on the sight-unseen vaccine schedule of the future. And yet that's what you're doing when you condemn the people who are fighting for your right to refuse.

YOU have the right to refuse, should you ever choose to use it, because the very "anti-vaccine" people you demonize have been fighting for us all.

Right now, the burden of "herd immunity" falls on small children, but that is changing. Vaccine manufacturers see an untapped market in adult vaccines and are coming for you next. What will you do if your state, your employer, or your insurance company forces you to get a vaccine that you simply don't want? It hasn't happened to you yet, but if the right to refuse is eroded, it will happen to you sooner than you might think.

Who then will you turn to?

Your legislators who get campaign donations from pharmaceutical companies?

The CDC that has former pharma executives sitting on the board?

Who will you turn to if you ever want to say no? There will be no one.

Once we enter the slippery slope of removing an individual's right to refuse medical procedures that carry a risk of injury or death, once we remove an individual's right to speak for him/herself and his/her children, we open ourselves up to an insidious new era, where other drugs and other procedures can be mandated. I heard (on NPR, interestingly enough) that there are people who want to test for a gene marker that's been found in mass shooters in the hopes that they can put the carriers of that gene on medications in early childhood.

Sounds great, right? But many of us carry genes that will never be expressed. You could be a carrier of that gene. Or your child could be a carrier. So if we follow the "for the greater good" mentality behind vaccines (or the Nazi's "for the greater good" mentality behind eugenics (breeding out illness), we are looking at forcing people who may never express a sociopathic gene to take antipsychotics, just in case. Because that's what forced vaccination does. It asks children who may never come into contact with a particular virus to accept a vaccine just in case. And that's what eugenics was all about. It sterilizes people who can pass on a genetic disease just in case. Forced vaccination is a human rights violation, and to support it when you know that the government's own Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System exists and lists people who have died as a result of vaccines is unethical at best, sociopathic at worst.

The ethical thing to do is to allow people their right to refuse and leave it up to doctors and big pharma (who have marketing budgets larger than the GDP of some countries) to do a better job of convincing parents that vaccines are safe. We can start by reversing the law that grants vaccine manufacturers total immunity from vaccine injury lawsuits. Because as it stands, you can't sue a vaccine manufacturer if your child is injured or killed by a vaccine, even in cases where they could've made a safer vaccine and chose not to or when they failed to recall a contaminated lot# in a timely manner. Think about that. You can't sue the manufacturer. That immunity from liability does more to shake parents' confidence in vaccines than anything else out there."

Measles Pose No Danger

[ If you're a concerned parent, your child has a higher chance of choking on food or suffocating from a toy than from dying of the measles ]

The letter below was sent to me today by our family doctor in response to the "measles outbreak". Let the 4th paragraph sink in good. He has offices in Manhattan and Woodbury NY for anyone in search of a new family doctor who isn't a whore for the pharmaceutical companies.

Measles Matters: News You Can Use

Dear Parent,

As a board certified pediatrician, I took the same oath as all physicians, "to do no harm."

The latest media presentation of the measles outbreak at Disneyland as a result of unvaccinated children is very upsetting to me. We are being fed information that is essentially inaccurate by media journalists - none of whom have medical degrees - which may actually be promoting medical harm to our children.

The latest reports blaming a failure of the measles vaccine on the unvaccinated population are not accurate, and in some reports, not true at all. In fact, over the past 30 years, there have been similar numbers of measles cases reported in various areas of the United States. Studies published in leading medical journals, such as the New England Journal of Medicine, American Journal of Epidemiology, American Journal of Public Health and others around the world have confirmed small numbers, 75-140 cases of measles annually. So why then is the latest statistic of over 90 cases of measles spread over 14 states, representing tens of millions of people being billed as an epidemic?

The media would have us believe that this is a result of the fringe population of anti-vaxers who refuse to have their children vaccinated according the guidelines of the current vaccine schedule. Medical reporting has brought to light the glaring ineffectiveness of the measles vaccines in fulfilling their widely claimed promise of preventing outbreaks in highly vaccine compliant populations. In fact, measles outbreaks have occurred in populations that have been vaccinated on the average of 77%- 99%, not the so-called anti-vaxers.

Last year 1 in every 500,000 Americans came down with the measles. Nearly all recovered in a few days without serious consequences. At the same time 1 in 68 American children were diagnosed with autism or for every case of measles there were 7000 cases of autism. I ask myself which is the real epidemic here?

Frank Bruni in an editorial in the New York Times on February 1, 2015 states that this measles outbreak is a result of "wealthy, educated people who deliberately didn't vaccinate their children." He refers to measles as "the scourge once essentially eliminated in this country is back" when, in fact, it never left! He refers to all links between autism and MMR vaccines as having been discredited yet he obviously has not read all the studies from the U.S. and around the world proving his information false. As a recent example, I would ask him to justify the 340% increase in autism in African-American boys in Chicago - a report that was supposedly squelched by the CDC . While he reports that the incidence of measles has increased over the past 10 years, no patients have died.

Scare tactics were used to terrorize those who attended this year's SuperBowl in Phoenix because of one woman who sat in a clinic without being properly isolated or that every one of the thousands of people passing through Penn Station are at risk because of one man who rode an Amtrak train. It appears that the saturation of the media amplifies the hypotheses to a point that seems misleadingly worthy of consideration. In other words, if enough people say things enough times there must be some truth to it. Does that justify USA Today publishing an article claiming that non-vaccinated parents should be jailed or sued or have their children removed from the home if they chose not to vaccinate their children against the measles? Does that justify the immediate vaccination of every child and adult in this country regardless of their immune status or overall medical health? Will the local pharmacies be hooking pedestrians into their stores for MMR vaccines as they have been doing for the less than effective flu vaccines?

As I write this piece, the director of the CDC states that the overall vaccination rate in this country is 92% !! Yet he is very concerned of a large outbreak because of the trend in not vaccinating certain children. Does this make sense?

I wish these journalists, vaccinologists and infectious disease specialists spent a week in my office. I wish they would actually listen to the testimonials given to me by parents of autistic children who were obviously affected by these vaccines adversely. I wish they would tell parents that the risk of dying from the measles in the United States is around zero. I wish they would admit that they are being told by pharmaceutical companies not to report certain statistics or to cover up factual scientific information. I wish they could be free to report honestly about vaccines rather than being dependent upon drug advertising and internet information.

This is an emotional debate for sure. If we discount emotion and fear, we would realize that a child may have a greater chance of getting struck by lightning, accidental drowning or possibly from adverse side effects of the MMR vaccination itself than from acquiring live measles infection. I wish that my pediatric colleagues would offer parents factual pros and cons of vaccines in general so that a parent can make an informed decision and then give consent to vaccinate rather than being told that if their child isn't vaccinated they will be thrown out of school and they are guilty of child abuse!

I am not advocating that vaccines be discontinued. I am advocating that doctors and patients become aware of the ingredients of these vaccines, what they can potentially do to affect an adverse outcome in an immunologically compromised child. Adverse reactions to MMR and other vaccines have been reported in numerous clinical trials and studies. I am advocating that medical practitioners and researchers, not journalists, address the real medical epidemics of autism, asthma, GI disease and autoimmune diseases facing our society and people around the world. Stop hyping the safety of MMR vaccines which may actually be more dangerous than live measles and may be ineffective in preventing the illness which they are so anxious to report as a dangerous epidemic itself.

Let's stop believing that the mainstream media is telling us the truth when all they are doing is shutting down any intelligent and open discussion about vaccine safety and how to improve it.

Mandatory Vaccination Is Infringement on Freedom of Choice

As a mother of a severely immune compromised child- I'm tired of so many people using my situation as a reason to excuse tyranny & oppression. It is MY RESPONSIBILITY to protect my child. Don't you dare pretend like everyone else shares that responsibility equally- it is an insult to my rights, duties and privileges as her mother. As soon as everyone else decides to grant themselves the same level of responsibility for the welfare of my child as I have, they tend to judge and find every reason to take me out of the picture. So, please get over yourselves.

Yes, I prefer that you don't bring your sick kid to church or to the store (unless you're there to get medicine and don't have a sitter- in which case it would be nice if you wore masks or just kept a distance). Yes, please use common courtesy & encourage others to do the same.

If you want to know the truth, I am just as concerned about my kid catching something from a shedding vaccine as I am about her catching something from a sick person- as well as catching something there isn't a vaccine for. But you don't have to stay away because you got your shots- unless they made you sick. Please, do what you can to be healthy- out of the goodness of your heart & from a place of integrity. There is a certain amount of unavoidable risk that we just live with. If you just visited a country where certain diseases are more common- whether or not you are vaccinated- please avoid my house and the children's hospital (unless you need to be there for your kid) for a few weeks. I won't demand it, but I do respectfully request it. And just know that I will do the same for you.

I eat well & feed my children well (nutrient dense whole food style), not just for us, but also so as not to be prime hosts for pathogens to mutate and become more dangerous to those around us. We do believe in immunization- of which there are many forms and science has NOT concluded which is best. Because it may very well be a different answer for each person. It is okay if the answer for you is vaccines. It's also okay if vaccines are not the answer for you.

Knowing what it is like to have a vulnerable child and how that isolation is lonely and stressful- not just for me, but mostly for my child- I wonder whether that isolation is really so safe or if human interaction has immune boosting powers that overcome that risk. Because when I am able to relax and let my child interact with others, she thrives better and has more vigor to take on her health challenges. So, please know that you are important. I thank you for doing your best to help your body be healthy in the way that you know how to support it. I also appreciate the smiles and kind words and real human interaction that you give my child and that your children give my child. She seems fragile, but she is a warrior. When she is wounded, it is MY JOB to protect and care for her. Please trust me to do that. Stop trying to give that job to everyone else. Show kindness, understanding and love, for I can attest that those are more powerful and pure medicine than anything invented by man- and they are wonderfully contagious!!

Thank you.

Salem Pearson-Thorup
