Not Born With It [Autism]

Recently, the newest U.S. autism prevalence numbers were released by the CDC.  It was not good news.  Among children born in 2004 and 2006, the prevalence of autism had increased from 1 in 68 to 1 in 59, respectively.  Leading the nation in terms of autism prevalence was New Jersey with a rate of 1 in 35 children and 1 in 22 boys.  In other words, nearly 5% of boys in New Jersey have autism spectrum disorder as defined by the new DSM V criteria. Of the children with autism in the U.S., 56% had an evaluated IQ of 85 or less, meaning they possessed intellectual disability, with the majority of those children having an IQ of less than 70. 

Many in the scientific community have posited that autism is genetically determined, and researchers have searched the genome looking for the cause of this disorder.  However, the over 400 genes that have been attributed to autism risk were found to contribute to only a fraction of autism cases.  Climbing down this flimsy branch of genetics, researchers and lauding media contrived the phrase “individuals born with autism.”

Looking at prevalence alone, we are seeing a dramatic and chilling increase in numbers of autism cases, especially in the past 18 years since CDC started to officially count autism numbers in the U.S.  In 2000, the prevalence was 1 in 250, then 1 in 133 (2006) followed by 1 in 88 (2012), 1 in 68 (2014) and now 1 in 59.  Historic data also consistently show that the rate of autism in the 1980’s was near 1 in 2000 children.  It is clear that we are in an ever-increasing epidemic of this often profoundly debilitating developmental disorder, where the majority of these children will never be able to live independently throughout their lifetime.

…these wonderful kids were born normally, developed normally for the first one year to 18 months of life, and then regressed into the isolated, painful and disabling world of autism.

Let’s go back to the “individuals born with autism” phrase that I take issue with.  It is the experience of my family and many, if not most families of children with autism, that these wonderful kids were born normally, developed normally for the first one year to 18 months of life, and then regressed into the isolated, painful and disabling world of autism.  They were not born with it but experienced a significant decline in function after an environmental stressor.

Just prior to the release of the CDC’s autism prevalence numbers, an important paper by Dr. Sally Ozonoff and her colleagues at the prestigious UC Davis MIND Institute was quietly published in the journal Autism Research.  The paper, entitled “Onset Patterns in Autism: Variation across Informants, Methods, and Timing” was the culmination of a prospective study tracking the onset of autistic symptoms as evaluated by special education practitioners and parents.  This was done with the gold standard autism assessment instrument Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), including assessments of frequency and quality of eye contact, shared affect, and overall social engagement by highly trained examiners.

It’s been 2 years since Vaxxed captured international headlines when it was pulled from the already-announced line-up of the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival on March 25th, 2016 and what a wild ride it has been since then! Immediately following the de-selection from the festival, the film was launched on a nationwide theatrical release, premiering April 1, 2016 at the prestigious Angelika Film Center in NYC, where it achieved the highest single screen box office gross for a documentary that year.

Since then, the film has experienced numerous examples of additional censorship in the U.S. along with several other countries. The film premiered in Belgium, the U.K and France despite significant censorship attempts by European Union parliamentary members, the Mayor of Paris and a U.K. cinema owner. It also opened in Italy and Ireland after significant unsuccessful local censorship efforts.

Over these last two years, Vaxxed was released theatrically in over 60 U.S and Canadian cities, and was the 8th highest grossing documentary of 2016. The filmmakers toured the U.S and Australia by bus during the Vaxxed tour, and have recorded nearly ten thousand vaccine injury stories. Vaxxed is now available to watch via digital stream and DVD in over 250 countries worldwide in English, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and French.

Since these past two years have been filled with so many exciting milestones for the Vaxxed community, we wanted to commemorate our two year anniversary with this FREE screening event and 30% off Vaxxed DVD sale! See below for purchase links!

Tell President Trump That You Want Vaccination Choice Included in the Proposed Rule Protecting Statutory Conscience Rights in Health Care

Note:  Below is an excerpt from the Federal Register on President Trump’s Proposed Rule Protecting Statutory Conscience Rights in Health Care; Delegations  of Authority. You have an opportunity to comment on the need to include conscience rights for vaccination choice. The vaccine pipeline is chock full of new opportunities to compel Americans to uptake a product through shaming, job loss and denial of a free an appropriate education – a product that carries known risk of injury and/or death and yet whose manufacturers bear no liability. Like guns, vaccines have been designated by SCOTUS as “unavoidably unsafe.”   This simply means that by their very design and nature, they can harm you with use. Obvious in the case of guns. And obvious to most of us here at AofA when it comes to vaccines as well.

Even if you currently choose some, few or every vaccine available for yourself and/or your children, if you would like the have the OPTION of saying “NO” to a vaccine in the future, you should consider leaving a comment as a vote for your personal medical rights.

A Proposed Rule by the Health and Human Services Department on 01/26/2018

SUMMARY:

In the regulation of health care, the United States has a long history of providing conscience-based protections for individuals and entities with objections to certain activities based on religious belief and moral convictions. Multiple such statutory protections apply to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS, or the Department) and the programs or activities it funds or administers. The Department proposes to revise regulations previously promulgated to ensure that persons or entities are not subjected to certain practices or policies that violate conscience, coerce, or discriminate, in violation of such Federal laws. Through this rulemaking, the Department proposes to grant overall responsibility to its Office for Civil Rights (OCR) for ensuring that the Department, its components, HHS programs and activities, and those who participate in HHS programs or activities comply with Federal laws protecting the rights of conscience and prohibiting associated discriminatory policies and practices in such programs and activities. In addition to conducting outreach and providing technical assistance, OCR will have the authority to initiate compliance reviews, conduct investigations, supervise and coordinate compliance by the Department and its components, and use enforcement tools otherwise available in civil rights law to address violations and resolve complaints. In order to ensure that recipients of Federal financial assistance and other Department funds comply with their legal obligations, the Department will require certain recipients to maintain records; cooperate with OCR’s investigations, reviews, or other enforcement actions; submit written assurances and certifications of compliance to the Department; and provide notice to individuals and entities about their conscience and associated anti-discrimination rights, as applicable.

With this proposed regulation, the Department seeks to more effectively and comprehensively enforce Federal health care conscience and associated anti-discrimination laws. Specifically, the Department proposes to grant its Office for Civil Rights (OCR) overall responsibility for ensuring that the Department, its components, HHS programs and activities, and those who participate in HHS programs or activities comply with these Federal laws. In addition to conducting outreach and providing technical assistance, OCR will have the authority to initiate compliance reviews, conduct investigations, supervise and coordinate compliance by the Department and its component(s), and use enforcement tools comparable to those available under other civil rights laws to more effectively address violations and resolve complaints. In order to ensure that recipients of Department funds comply with their legal obligations, as it does with other civil rights laws within its purview, the Department will require certain funding recipients to maintain records; cooperate with OCR’s investigations, reviews, or enforcement actions; submit written assurances and certifications of compliance to the Department; and provide notice to individuals and entities about conscience and associated anti-discrimination rights (as applicable).

Pharmacist’s Daughter Stops Vaccinating and So Does The Pharmacist!

Pharmacist’s Daughter Stops Vaccinating and So Does The Pharmacist!

http://www.stopmandatoryvaccination.com/parent/vaccine-injury/pharmacists-daughter-stops-vaccinating-an-so-does-the-pharmacist/

Scott Borges, a retired pharmacist, shares his professional background, his vaccine experience, and what led him and his daughter to stop vaccinating.

“I was a pharmacist for 39 years, managed three different large chain drug stores for the last 25 years that I worked. Retired in 2014 and thought I might do a little part-time work. Worked about 20 hours giving flu vaccines after retirement and finally said I was through. My daughter, Lisa, had a child in 2016 more than two months premature that weighed 3.6 pounds. Lisa started questioning the idea of vaccinations which made me look at them for the first time ever, even though I had been vaccinating for the last six or seven years. Luckily, she stopped the vaccines after my grandson’s second doctor’s office visit and did not wait for me to do the research or even ask the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU), “Why on earth are you injecting a toxin linked to illicit drug use and sexually transmitted disease into a premature infant?” This is what got me started on questioning vaccines.”

Q: Before we explore questions about your grandchild, was your daughter vaccinated on a full, or partial schedule, or not at all? 

Lisa was vaccinated on time and was fully vaccinated. She is almost 32, so she didn’t have the 72 doses they recommend now on the current childhood vaccination schedule. She traveled to Thailand in 2013 and I gave her the tDap vaccine before she left. That night she was in such horrible pain she could not sleep. Convinced myself it was the tetanus ingredient and a normal reaction. Wow.

Q: Was your daughter’s preemie vaccinated and if so, which vaccines did her baby receive? 

My daughter Lisa’s son, Aidan, got the Hepatitis B shot at 2 weeks old, when he weighed less than 4 pounds, and was born 10 weeks premature. He received his 2 month shots when he got home, still not even term age. And again, received shots at 4 months. We thought we were doing the right thing and I was the pharmacist. Lisa found the movie, Vaxxed, before the 6 month vaccination round and informed her pediatrician she was going to delay the rest of the vaccinations. The pediatrician was not in agreement, so Lisa found a different doctor.

Q: What inspired your daughter to further research vaccines?

Lisa’s child, Aidan, was the impetus for her research. She has been health conscious for years. She is vegan, tries to use all natural products and essential oils. Lisa has nursed Aidan since day one, tried to do all the “right things.” She had reservations about the vaccines, yet vaccinations were not a real issue. How could vaccinations be wrong if your dad administers them for a living? It wasn’t until Aidan reacted to his 4 month shots that she questioned vaccines. In her words, “Aidan was so sad when we got home, it was awful. He was inconsolable and just kept on crying.” That is when she found Vaxxed.
