    DEAR KRISTEN BELL: Whose “Facts Are Friends”? – Yours or Mine?

    For those who do not know, there is a bill called SB277 that has currently moved forward through three different senate committees here in California.  (I encourage you to read this if you haven’t before proceeding).

    If you haven’t heard of it, perhaps you were one of the millions of Californians who were just too swamped with work or it wasn’t a sponsored blog on your news feed, or instead of keeping up with the current times you’ve been Keeping Up With The _______, you get where I am going with this.

    The great vaccine debate has been going on for quite some time now. Mostly it’s led to mom-shaming. There has been entirely too much labeling done as well and it’s leading nowhere. Let’s get one thing straight. Most of us “anti-vaxxers” ARE IN FACT:

    • Pro-Child
    • Pro Family
    • Pro-Community
    • Pro-Freedom
    • Pro-Critical Thinking
    • Pro-Research
    • Pro-Science (yes, you read that correctly.)
    • Pro-Honesty
    • Pro Government Transparency
    • Pro Pharmaceutical Company Accountability
    • Pro-Safety

    As I am sure most “Pro-Vaxxers” are. So let’s cut it with the “anti-this” and “pro-that.” We are all so much more than that label. This bill is NOT about arguing the science of vaccines, DON’T BE FOOLED. It is about YOUR RIGHTS being stripped away as a parent, and no longer being able to CHOOSE what enters your child’s blood steam. This bill passing means that doctors will no longer be required to tell you what’s in the syringe. So, once again, to be clear… THIS BILL IS NOT WHETHER VACCINES ARE GOOD FOR YOU OR NOT, IT IS ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS AS A PARENT!

    Since there are bills like this in the works that could completely remove those rights, you are starting to see so many more sponsored posts about vaccines and why they are good for you. Heck, even Jimmy Kimmel had to post up a video with doctors pretty much calling any parent who questions, an idiot. Then there are articles like this one from the actress Kristen Bell. A woman who prides herself in organic living/eating, who is completely pro-vaccinations. She wrote a very compelling article I must say, but there are always two sides to something. I want those mothers who are still against vaccines to not be afraid to stand up for what you believe in, and for the research that you have done and continue to do. We are not all a bunch of Jenny MaCarthy followers. I even had to Google what she has to do with this craze since her name kept getting dropped.  Sorry, but with a dramatic INCREASE in vaccinations, you have every right to question who/what/when/where/why and HOW. Especially when they are not 100% effective. Your vaccinated child can still catch the very disease you think you’re protecting them from. I turned to a great friend and writer, Naomi Goodale, (founder of Milky Momma) who is in the same boat as myself, and countless other parents out there who make up the “silent majority”. People who do feel a certain way and are feeling more and more attacked daily by how they choose to raise their own children. Something that NO ONE should have say over. I want to share with you a perfect response to such a memo from a Hollywood actress. I am beyond tired of being name-called and treated like I sit back and just jump on this bandwagon of mothers who out of nowhere won’t vaccinate. When in fact I am up to my ears daily in research! Without sounding like a broken record, below is a rebuttal to the letter that is currently circulating the interweb.

    Without further ado, Naomi.

    Dear Kristen Bell: Whose “Facts are Friends”—yours or mine?

    I want to start by saying thank you for your own version of concluded friendly “facts” on the issue, but more so for the lovely, adorable, talented actress that you are. As a matter of fact—no pun intended— I was just watching “When in Rome” when a friend emailed me this blog pleading with me to write a response as I thought to myself, “now what are the odds of that?”

    So who am I? Well, aside from a minor stint in reality TV in which my fifteen minutes couldn’t have ended soon enough, I am just your average So Cal, organic-lover, beach side, Life-living, devoted wife, and baby-crazed mom. Writer, blogger, music-lover, yes. Famous, no. I don’t have any celebrity power to sway fans. I don’t have some grand platform to stand on by the power of my name alone.

    But please don’t think I am condemning you for this. Although I admit I have no desire to step foot behind a camera again, it is in times like these that I can actually say—I envy you. Kudos for having the fame in your name to voice your own passionate plea to parents all across the nation, knowing you’ll be heard.

    Yes, in times like these as we are facing an internal war against the machine of supposed “proven” God Almighty Science and (some of us) are paying close attention to SB277 here in California, as many of us ‘average Joe’-mamas are losing sleep over wondering whether or not we will have to pull our children from the education system and home school them should the bill pass— I think I’ll go out on a limb to say we all wish we were famous right now. We all wish we had the type of following you do; to stand on that same platform and state our own passionate plea to think twice before you vaccinate your children.

    And while your facts suggest that vaccines are totally safe, I’d go out on a further limb to say that the 380 people who turned up at the State Capitol on April 8th’s hearing to state their objections to SB277 and plea on behalf of their vaccine-injured otherwise dead child would grill your facts into the ground.

    If this sounds snarky or condescending, my apologies— not my intention. But there is an absolute rebuttal of ‘facts’ here that entirely counter, even dismantle your own. While I may not have the celebrity power in my name to sway anyone, I am still just a mom like yourself wanting to keep those same constitutional freedoms and rights that belong to each of us.

    And your ‘facts’ and celebrity status (as of the moment) somewhat threaten those rights. Yes, I’m just a mom Kristen, whom, like yourself has spent hours upon hours for months on end, sifting through and reading every possible ‘scientific study’ in addition to the anecdotal data available through non CDC-affiliated, independently-funded case studies comparing the overall health of un-vaccinated children to their vaccinated counterparts—something the CDC refuses to do.

    So now that we’re acquainted, please don’t mind at all as we compare a handful of those ‘factual-friends’ of yours to mine. If you couldn’t tell by now, I really love that word—it’s become so, oh I don’t know—fluid and free in this day and age, don’t you agree?

    The Vaccine “Facts”
    “Even very young children can easily handle them.” ~KB

    This is an interesting one because it’s a ‘fact’ of omission. But hey, depending on who you’re talking to, a half-truth is just as good as a whole truth. Here I would’ve said “even young children, but definitely not all, and there’s certainly no way of knowing which children will not “easily” handle them, until it is too late.”

    Aren’t enough of us wondering at this point why we have this ‘one-size-fits-all’ vaccination program? There’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ health program for the rest of us and certainly no ‘across-the-board’ equal risk when exposed to biological substances of known and unknown levels of toxicity. So shouldn’t we be wondering by now why our doctors and children’s pediatricians are not handing over the vaccine inserts; telling us to take them home, read them over and weigh those risks versus benefits and then come back with fully informed consent for our children prior to their inoculations?

    Aren’t we all wondering by now why there isn’t a preliminary evaluation taking place to determine the genetic and medical family history of each child in order to determine the risk of vaccination on a case by case basis— the same protocol that every other medical procedure would require beforehand?

    The hundreds of thousands of parents at this point in time who faithfully believed their child could “easily handle” the ingredients in the vaccines couldn’t have known otherwise until their children lay crippled, paralyzed, and/or dead in their arms. But even so it goes, when our children seem to have “easily” handled their shots, I wonder how many of us have developed some sort of Super X-Ray Vision or the type of Super Power that can see into their children’s future to know just how the combo-cocktails would affect their general health for years to come.

    Yep, there are chemicals and toxins in the flu shot and so called “Preservative-Free” Vaccines
    Yikes, it sure does sound awful! I agree with you on that much…and perhaps because it is. Again, if only we had that Super X-Ray vision and could see through their tiny little bodies to know what’s going on inside their fragile, developing systems after they’ve been injected with these combo neurotoxins.

    And since we’re now on that subject, allow me to elaborate on those ingredients you’ve mentioned as well as add to your list. And just to be clear, I won’t delve into every single last harmful ingredient/toxin in every vaccine because that would simply take too long. We’ll just cover a few.

    I’m sure you’re aware that even “trace” amounts of foods that a child or adult is severely allergic to may cause severe swelling of the throat, rash, injury and/or death. So even ‘trace’ amounts are, as a matter of fact, my friend— unavoidably unsafe.

    And since our doctors and government regulated agencies love to tout the ‘fact’ that we now have “preservative-free” vaccines, let’s start with those “trace” levels of mercury in them. Yes, those “trace” levels that when combined in all their “trace” amounts into a combo-cocktail, exceed by ten times the maximum ppb amount of FDA-approved daily intake— hold onto your chair—for grown adults. And as a matter of (another) factual-friend of mine, The Department of Defense classifies mercury as a hazardous material that could cause death if it is swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin and in 2008 enforced a mercury export ban for this very reason.

    Two parts per billion is the maximum amount of mercury that makes water “safe” for drinking according to the FDA/EPA  and anything over 200 ppb mercury is considered toxic. In the “thimerosal-free” flu vaccine, there is almost 300 ppb and 25,000 ppb mercury given in the regular flu shot. Sure doesn’t seem harmless to me! Mercury poisoning has been linked to (yes) autism, seizures, cardiovascular disease, hyperactivity, mental retardation, dyslexia and a host of other central nervous system disorders. And how about Aluminum phosphate—same can be said here, where scientists know this ‘ingredient’ only increases the toxicity of mercury.

    And yes, let’s talk about ‘Formaldehyde’ since you brought it to the table— you say it’s really “not so bad” eh? I absolutely beg to differ. It is in fact a highly carcinogenic fluid that has been used to embalm corpses, also ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds to human health for the fact that it can cause respiratory distress, liver damage, cancer, gastrointestinal problems, and reproductive deformation. If that’s not bad enough, formaldehyde has been known to fail to deactivate the virus that the vaccine is supposed to cure.

    The live virus is then able to enter your blood and infect your system—hence the very reason we typically see so many cases of disease outbreaks among those who have been fully vaccinated. So, we not only play Medical Russian Roulette with our children’s health knowing they will receive a combo of toxins that may or may not even provide temporary “immunity” at all while taking the risk toward s possible host of future health problems; attempting to use the so-called “science” of “vaccine efficacy” automatically gets thrown out the window each time a fully-up-to-date vaccinated child acquires the disease to which they’ve been vaccinated against.  Vaccines are not bulletproof. 



    But that “preservative-free” list keeps going so, hang tight…

    Human albumin—sounds weird right? I think so—even a little disturbing— and for good reason. It’s the protein portion of blood taken from pooled human venous plasma that when injected may cause fever, rapid heart rate, chills, hives, headache, breathing difficulty, rash, nausea, and headaches. Injecting “pooled blood” can also produce a loss of body cell mass and lead to immunodeficiency viral infection, or contain AIDS, cancer, SV40 or Hepatitis B from drug addicts.

    How about some Phenoxyethanol? A glycol ether/chemical that is highly toxic to the kidneys, the liver, and nervous system. The FDA warns that it “can cause shut down of the central nervous system (CNS), vomiting and contact dermatitis” and that’s with regard to absorption using cosmetics! Now think about injecting it straight into your young babe’s bloodstream.

    Side-order of ‘Bovine cow serum’—no thanks! I’ll pass on the cow skin extractions that when injected cause connective tissue disorders, shortness of breath, LUPUS, low blood pressure, arthritis, negative skin reactions, and chest pains.

    MSG –that nasty little guy we’d like to see eliminated from our food (monosodium glutamate) that when injected becomes a neurotoxin and may lead to brain damage and CNS disorders in children.

    Sodium Chloride– Raises blood pressure and inhibits muscle growth and contraction.

    Egg protein— Are they organic eggs? Nope! And they may contain growth hormones, antibiotics, and salmonella bacteria because of it since vaccines are prepared in them.

    For the love of God, where are the CLEAN, GREEN VACCINES!?

    Childhood eczema, diabetes, hypertension, dyslexia, severe allergies, bed wetting, ADHD, Autism, autoimmune diseases, asthma, cancer (the list goes on) are plaguing our current generation of children in numbers never seen in history. According to current U.S. National Health Statistics our children are sicker than ever, so echo the question, ‘why do pediatricians deny the obvious’?

    Sure our compromised food supplies and external, environmental components play their part too, but how do we expect to inject our children with 49 doses of 16 different vaccines before the age of six and 69 by the age of 18 without any type of health repercussion? In comparison to the 6-7 vaccines those of us in our thirties and up received as children, this should be cause for concern to every parent. Our children today receive more vaccines before they’re six months old than we received by the time we graduated high school! What is wrong with this picture?

    And it doesn’t stop there. There are almost 300 new vaccines in the pipeline, all of which will be required for our children to attend public and private school if a bill like SB277 were to pass. If medical exemptions are the only thing left for us, which are in and of themselves extremely difficult to obtain (you have to be a chemo patient and near-dead, otherwise already adversely affected by a vaccine), few will have any favor when it comes to exempting from even a single one. In time, parents, teachers, day care providers, health care professionals—yes, all of us will be required by law to receive every last CDC-recommended shot, or else…

    But while there’s no good reason that any one of these ‘ingredients’ should be in these vaccines, and absolutely no good reason we don’t have clean, green vaccines with all our advancements in science and medicine today—this is so much bigger than vaccines alone. This is about the state and government deciding that they have the right to dismantle our constitutional rights for “security of persons”—That right to decide for ourselves what we allow in our own bodies and the bodies of our precious little loved ones, informed consent, freedom of religion (many object to the use of aborted fetal cell tissue in vaccines), personal belief, and the right that every child have access to a public education (along with general public), not ostracized with no choice but to homeschool.

    If we lay down this right without a fight, because they say it’s for “the greater good” of society, what rights could we possibly have left? And if there are any, do we lose those too just as soon as the State decides we are a public threat to the “greater good”? This is medical fascism and I cannot believe that every single parent across the nation is not in an uproar over this.

    If they can track us down and force us against our will to receive these injections—if they can, by law, take our children from us if we refuse the jabs, then what’s left of our constitutional rights and freedoms?

    Dear sweet mama, assuming you wrote this blog with a truly sincere heart at a most crucial time in the state of California. Scratch that—a crucial time in the entire nation for that matter as the rest of the country stands by watching and waiting to see what will happen with this bill— assuming you are pro-SB277 (though I hope I am wrong about that) have you considered all these implications?

    If we wake up tomorrow and our bodies belong to the State, we can expect (as it has been and continues to take place in those states such as West Virginia and Mississippi) state police to show up on our doorsteps ready to take our children into custody if they’re not “up-to-date” on their shots. As parents, we may end up fined for our children’s missed absences at school or imprisoned—in some cases both. If you think that sounds impossible, just look into those stories for yourself. Yes, it has happened. And all for what? For childhood illnesses that the CDC states are “rarely fatal”?

    We do not live in third world poverty. With proper nutrition and treatment of symptoms, a child who acquires a disease naturally (such as measles) according to the CDC, will most likely survive it and have acquired lifelong immunity as a result. TRUE HERD IMMUNITY WILL ONLY BE POSSIBLE THIS WAY.

    Why did I capitalize that last sentence? Because, we have to understand no matter how many times that word gets thrown out there as reason to validate such proposed bills, when immunization comes via an artificial process, we must realize it comes with a shelf-life, which is why continuous boosters are required. This temporary (if any) immunity wanes over time. So then, apply the supposed “science” of herd immunity—which by the way has never once been studied or proven— and it doesn’t take long to figure out that the majority of the population is “unprotected” and therefore our children are all at risk.

    And exactly why are we so caught up with ‘health in a vile anyway’? Proper nutrition, adequate levels of rest, and vitamins A, B, C, D3, E, K etc. Let’s help our children by helping their health and developing immune systems the natural way.

    “BUT VACCINES SAVED US!” …did they really?

    Not according to published peer-reviewed research when looking at two centuries worth of official health/death statistics. In fact, vaccines in every instance came on the scene way too late to take the credit, including diseases like Polio. Diseases were then, and still are cyclical and we don’t know when/how long those cycles last. Prior to the development of vaccines, diseases had been well on the decline already by over 90% in some cases before the first artificially-induced inoculation ever took place. What “saved” us was better hygiene, improved standards of living and medical practices, clean drinking water, and improved food transportation etc.

    Not to mention, and because naturally we are concerned for the immunocompromised children, live-virus vaccines such as measles, mumps, rubella, influenza, rota virus, and chicken pox may shed for weeks to a month and have been scientifically proven and evidenced to not only cause the disease itself in the child, but the very reason why parents to such vulnerable, immunodeficient infants and children are advised by their doctors to “stay away from children who have recently been vaccinated.”

    Even if a child shows no symptoms of the disease to which they’ve been vaccinated against, they harbor the virus in the throat and even that “tiny” little amount of it make them highly contagious. For proof of this, look no further than the most recent outbreak of whooping cough in California where the CDC had to admit the vaccine itself was the culprit in 97% of the fully vaccinated cases, and that’s with a dead virus.

    So following this line of reasoning, where is the amendment to this bill seeking to mandate vaccinations for public/private school administration that sets a quarantine period for all children recently vaccinated with (namely) live-virus vaccines? Do we not see the irony in this? This wouldn’t be convenient for any of our busy schedules but it’s a community health hazard nonetheless.

    I won’t site a bunch of sources from ‘this study’ or ‘that study’ because, quite frankly I’ve read them and don’t have too much faith in them. Where financial entanglements and conflicts of interest with funding from Pharmaceutical companies all meet together in one big, happy, lucrative bed, integrity seems to take a back seat to power, politics, and financial gain. As Robert Kennedy Jr. himself stated in his April 8th speech rally outside the capitol; “The CDC has a long history for being a cesspool of corruption.” Anyone taking the time to dig just a little would see that this statement is grounded in truth.

    I ask you a simple question instead. In fact, I’ll ask every pro-vaccine proponent reading this; have any of you taken the time to sift through the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) data available to all of us? While the CDC may disclaim that these reports don’t necessarily mean there was a “proven”  “causal” relationship between the reaction, injury, or death following an administered vaccine(s), the number of claims are staggering as they admit that due to the nature of the system being voluntary, the number of reports reflect a mere fraction (anywhere from 1-10%) of the total cases that go unreported every year.

    And why might this be? If you haven’t taken the time to do so, I encourage you to seek out the countless stories of parents being forced to leave their children’s doctors’ offices, told there’s “no way the vaccine(s) caused your child’s reaction or injury”— because there’s always some other random “coincidental” factor nearby to take the blame, right?. Truly, if there is one “fact” about vaccines at this point, I agree with Laura Hayes when she says they have officially become “the number one cause of coincidence in the world.”

    So then, how many cases do go reported a year? Well, before we get to that, let’s get to the bottom of one very important point: that is, in 1986 the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed in response to a large number of lawsuits claiming vaccines were causing adverse reactions such as brain damage and death. The Act permanently shielded the vaccine manufacturers and all medical professionals from any and all liability. So pardon me, sweet mama when I object to the statement you made that when it comes to vaccines, we can “trust” them even if we can’t trust them (e.g. FDA) on much else.

    I don’t believe its political rather common sense to say that there is an absolute conflict of interest here when it comes to our children. Where do we draw the line on the number of necessary vaccines and boosters our children receive if they won’t, because they’re not liable for any possible reaction, even death? And just to object to another one of your ‘friendly-facts’ with one of my own, let me say that YES, vaccines are absolutely  a multi-billion dollar profitable industry, but who profits?

    To date, almost $3 billion dollars have been compensated to families suffering a loved one’s irreversible injury, Autism, and/or death in the very secretive, private Federal Vaccine Court, which may not even exist much longer if informed consent is taken away from us. This is a lot of money considering just how difficult it is to even file a claim and receive compensation.

    And just for the sake of comparative purposes, let’s look at what the CDC says about measles and then have a look-see at what the vaccine insert says about the MMR Vaccine.

    According to the CDC:
    Measles begins with high fever, cough, runny nose (coryza), and red, watery eyes (conjunctivitis). Two or three days after symptoms begin… tiny white spots (Koplik spots) may appear inside the mouth. A few days after symptoms are observed a rash breaks out. It usually begins as flat red spots that appear on the face at the hairline and spread downward to the neck, trunk, arms, legs, and feet. Small raised bumps may also appear on top of the flat red spots. The spots may become joined together as they spread from the head to the rest of the body. When the rash appears, a person’s fever may spike to more than 104° Fahrenheit. After a few days, the fever subsides and the rash fades. Following this ordeal the individual’s fully operational immune system will have had the opportunity to produce a formidable lifelong measles defense.

    ADVERSE REACTIONS TO MMR II VACCINE

. The following adverse reactions are listed in decreasing order of severity, without regard to causality, within each body system category and have been reported during clinical trials, with use of the marketed vaccine, or with use of monovalent or bivalent vaccine containing measles, mumps, or rubella:

    • Body as a Whole
Panniculitis; atypical measles; fever; syncope; headache; dizziness; malaise; irritability.
    • Cardiovascular System
Vasculitis.
    • Digestive System
Pancreatitis; diarrhea; vomiting; parotitis; nausea.
    • Endocrine System
Diabetes mellitus.
    • Hemic and Lymphatic System
Thrombocytopenia (see WARNINGS, Thrombocytopenia); purpura; regional lymphadenopathy; leukocytosis.
    • Immune System
Anaphylaxis and anaphylactoid reactions have been reported as well as related phenomena such as angioneurotic edema (including peripheral or facial edema) and bronchial spasm in individuals with or without an allergic history.
    • Musculoskeletal System
Arthritis; arthralgia; myalgia. Arthralgia and/or arthritis (usually transient and rarely chronic), and polyneuritis are features of infection with wild-type rubella and vary in frequency and severity with age and sex, being greatest in adult females and least in prepubertal children. This type of involvement as well as myalgia and paresthesia, have also been reported following administration of MERUVAX II.
Chronic arthritis has been associated with wild-type rubella infection and has been related to persistent virus and/or viral antigen isolated from body tissues. Only rarely have vaccine recipients developed chronic joint symptoms.
Following vaccination in children, reactions in joints are uncommon and generally of brief duration. In women, incidence rates for arthritis and arthralgia are generally higher than those seen in children (children: 0-3%; women: 12-26%), {17,56,57} and the reactions tend to be more marked and of longer duration. Symptoms may persist for a matter of months or on rare occasions for years. In adolescent girls, the reactions appear to be intermediate in
incidence between those seen in children and in adult women. Even in women older than 35 years, these reactions are generally well tolerated and rarelyinterfere with normal activities.
    • Nervous System
Encephalitis; encephalopathy; measles inclusion body encephalitis (MIBE) (see CONTRAINDICATIONS); subacutesclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE); Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS); acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM); transverse myelitis; febrile convulsions; afebrile convulsions or seizures; ataxia; polyneuritis; polyneuropathy; ocular palsies; paresthesia. Experience from more than 80 million doses of all live measles vaccines given in the U.S. through 1975 indicates that significant central nervous system reactions such as encephalitis and encephalopathy, occurring within 30 days after vaccination, have been temporally associated with measles vaccine very rarely.{58} In no case has it been shown that reactions were actually caused by vaccine. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has pointed out that “a certain number of cases of encephalitis may be expected to occur in a large childhood population in a defined period of time even when no vaccines are administered”. However, the data suggest the possibility that some of these cases may have been caused by measles vaccines. The risk of such serious neurological disorders following live measles virus vaccine administration remains far less than that for encephalitis and encephalopathy with wild-type measles (one per two thousand reported cases).
Post-marketing surveillance of the more than 200 million doses of M-M-R and M-M-R II that have been distributed worldwide over 25 years (1971 to 1996) indicates that serious adverse events such as encephalitis and encephalopathy continue to be rarely reported.{17} There have been reports of subacute sclerosing panenc ephalitis (SSPE) in children who did not have a history of infection with wild-type measles but did receive measles vaccine. Some of these cases may have resulted from unrecognized measles in the first year of life or possibly from the measles vaccination.
Based on estimated nationwide measles vaccine distribution, the association of SSPE cases to measles vaccination is about one case per million vaccine doses distributed. This is far less than the association with infection with wild-type measles, 6-22 cases of SSPE per million cases of measles. The results of a retrospective case-controlled study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest that the overall effect of measles vaccine has been to protect against SSPE by preventing measles with its inherent higher risk of SSPE.{59}
Cases of aseptic meningitis have been reported to VAERS following measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination. Although a causal relationship between the Urabe strain of mumps vaccine and aseptic meningitis has been shown, there is no evidence to link Jeryl Lynn™ mumps vaccine to aseptic meningitis.
    • Respiratory System
Pneumonia; pneumonitis (see CONTRADICATIONS); sore throat; cough; rhinitis.
    • Skin
Stevens-Johnson syndrome; erythema multiforme; urticaria; rash; measles-like rash; pruritis. Local reactions including burning/stinging at injection site; wheal and flare; redness (erythema); swelling; induration; tenderness;
vesiculation at injection site.
    • Special Senses — Ear Nerve
deafness; otitis media.
    • Special Senses — Eye
Retinitis; optic neuritis; papillitis; retrobulbar neuritis; conjunctivitis.
    • Urogenital System
Epididymitis; orchitis.
    • Other 
death from various, and in some cases unknown, causes has been reported rarely following vaccination with measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines; however, a causal relationship has not been established in healthy individuals.

    CAN YOU IMAGINE how long of a TV Ad this one would be?

    Why isn’t this a TV ad announcement along with every other pharmaceutical drug? And how many of us have been given these inserts by our doctors prior to them jabbing our little ones? Where is the medical integrity? And so then, based on the VAERS data and according to the CDC:

    “30,000 cases of adverse reactions with 10-15% classified as “severe” (e.g. resulting in hospitalization, irreversible injury and/or death”) have been reported every year for the last two and a half decades.

    If you’re doing the math and adding it all up, even on the low end of it being 1-5% of total cases, you arrive somewhere in the millions ballpark of injuries and deaths over the course of twenty plus years—taking into account population growth and the increased number of vaccines and doses children and adults within specific professional industries must receive. In the last five years, those numbers have dramatically increased and it’s only getting worse.

    But the big question in this whole divide over vaccines and parents on either side of the fence of this proposed SB277 bill, should not continue on about those wishy-washy ‘facts’ about vaccines being “good” or “bad” rather; “Should we have the right to evaluate that risk for ourselves when it comes to our own bodies and the developing bodies of our little brood”? The issue is ‘Informed Consent’ and it is our parental and constitutional RIGHT to the ‘security of (our own) persons’ to make those decisions.

    And so, I plead to everyone the same, especially those of you who are pro-vaccine and think you’re fine with a bill like SB277. I ask you to consider the implications for yourselves and your children. Do you value your right to informed consent? Do you value your sacred, constitutional right to make decisions for your children, namely their health decisions? This is not an issue of “public health threat” as it is painted out to be. No, not over a few cases of measles (no one died) at Disneyland— the happiest place on earth.

    It is so much bigger than that. Imagine everything that will change in our culture should a bill like this pass. Imagine an entire subculture of prejudice and segregation from “those” un-vaccinated/partially vaccinated, home-schooled kids. It’s already happening with labels like “those dirty kids”, which I find incredibly ironic. My children’s systems are entirely free of every ingredient labeled above, and they’re somehow “dirty”?

    Do we or our children really deserve this type of treatment over childhood illnesses (once again) that the CDC labels as “rarely fatal”? What has this nation come to that we continuously treat each other with such contempt over those decisions we are entitled to make for ourselves and our children? I can’t help but wonder what God and all His Heavenly Host are thinking as they look down on all this insanity. When will it end?

The overall point here? Do NOT be afraid to QUESTION. Do not be afraid to follow your instincts. You can turn everything off if that makes it better, but there ARE facts out there and know that IT IS MORE THAN OKAY TO QUESTION YOUR DOCTOR/PEDIATRICIAN/ETC. Question away actually, since they are currently trying to take away that right. So while you still CAN, and while doctors still HAVE to tell you what’s in the syringe. If you are EVER feeling pressured by doctors or nurses and you are feeling uneasy, the best advice I can give you is to walk away from the situation. Say, “I am going to go home and discuss this with my husband” or “let me take a day or two to really soak this in and I will be back if we decided this is what we want to do.”

    YOU ARE THE ONLY VOICE YOUR CHILD HAS!!!

    My worst fear would be that in 20 years my children will look at me and say, “Mom, how could you NOT ASK? How could you NOT QUESTION?”

    They will thank you for doing everything in your power to at least LOOK IN TO IT. I promise you. May God bless you and your beautiful children! They are indeed the future, allow them to get there in the best possible health.

    • Carolyn - Something else that is being ignored through this whole debate is what the virus for the vaccines are cultured in. All measles vaccines available have been cultured in the WI-38, MRC 5 and RA 273 cell lines. Where do these cell lines originate from? They are cell lines that were derived from aborted fetus. Do really have the right to force someone who has a very strong religious belief against abortion to take a drug that is derived from it?ReplyCancel

      • Carolan - Oh my! Aborted fetuses? Did not know that and just disgusting to hear. So many have no clue about stuff like that and yet they do not appear to WANT to know. Minds closed tight. Makes me CRAZY!ReplyCancel

    • Deborah - Thanks for postingReplyCancel

    • HD - I read recently that Kristen Bell is vegan – does she know that she’s injecting animal-derived ingredients into her baby via vaccines?ReplyCancel

    • Excuse Me…There are Elephants in the Vaccine Room! | SoloSpark - […] Beyond the science of vaccines and their credibility enters another arena in this debate, that of human rights of informed consent.  Beyond the science and right/wrong of accountability issues, we also now face whether we even have a right to decide whether to vaccinate or not or to even know what is inside the syringe.  Yes, there are bills like this in the works that could completely remove those rights. […]ReplyCancel

    • Trisha - Thank you so much for this article! Love the way you write, God BlessReplyCancel

    • Nancy - Very well researched and very well said. If only we could make Kristen Bell read it. Most people with her perspective would rather name-call and enjoy their ignorance.ReplyCancel

    • Carolan - Excellent post! True that pro vax shills are busy little bees these days, which only prompted me to also finally speak UP. While I’ve followed this debate for a long time, had stayed silent for the most part, not wishing to enter that ugly arena. However silence can be interpreted as agreement. Too important to be passive.

    • mary trutter - THIS LETTER WAS MASTERFULLY WRITTEN – I HOPE EVERYONE READING WILL PASS IT ON TO EVERYONE THEY KNOW. the TIME FOR NAIVETY IS OVER. WE MUST SPEAK UP AND SAY NOReplyCancel

    • Lyndsey - Thank you. What a well written, smart letter. We needed someone to write this, thank you thank you.ReplyCancel

    • Stef - Thank you so much for this post. I could have never said it any better. Very good letter! Very good post!ReplyCancel

    • Hillary - Thank you so very much for writing this article. The media (AKA big pharma) fed witch hunt for people who disagree with the ridiculous vaccination schedule in this country has got to stop. Unfortunately, I don’t think it will. But, this article is a breath of fresh air to me. Thank you! Amen! Keep doing what you are doing. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!ReplyCancel

    • Shannon Nering - Thank you for your well-researched and ever-so eloquent article here. If only the pro-vaxxers would read it. I believe the only reason that they are PRO-vax is because they won’t take the time to do the research folks like you and I have done and HAVE to do (as you said, they’ve probably not even read the medical disclaimer in the vaccine insert). The irony is rich that we, anti-vax-types, are foolish and don’t do our homework. I’ve read volumes on this subject and hope I COULD/would be convinced to vaccinate as it would be SO MUCH EASIER! Going against the grain and standing up for something that the true herds have been brainwashed to believe (for the immense profit of very few) is the difficult road, and not the other. Kudos to you and the others taking a stand, and for doing it armed with clear facts and a clear conscience. I am beyond impressed. Keep on keeping on as will I!!!
      Best,
      ShannonReplyCancel

    • holly S - Very well worded, with lots of important facts! Now if only some of the people you’re addressing would actually read this, and be open to having their minds changed…

      You’re not the only one holding their breath and waiting on SB277. Here’s hoping our politicians decide to listen to us when we speak out against mandatory vaccines! Like you said, it’s not a matter of being anti-vaccine, anti-science… it’s a matter of parental choice and informed consent.ReplyCancel

    • Cherie - Very well written call to action. Thank you.ReplyCancel

    • Greg - Many people don’t remember Polio…and if you look into the facts you’ll see that the vaccine has been the primary reason for near global eradication of this disease. The major philanthropic effort of Rotary International has been eradication of Polio. Are you claiming the millions of dollars and countless volunteer hours spent were irrelevant?

      There were an estimated 350,000 cases of polio in 1988 and from this massive humanitarian effort there has been a 99% reduction since then with 416 cases reported worldwide in 2013 (according to the WHO).

      I would suggest learning more about Rotary International, some of the members may remember life before and after the polio vaccine. Their stories may surprise you.ReplyCancel

    • brittney - Thank you for this!!!! Good Lord do people need to wake up and either get informed or stop spreading this vaccines are safe nonsense! They are not safe, not by any means and you hit the nail on the head. Thank you for your courage!ReplyCancel

    • jen - Thank you for such a well worded post! I will be sharing it and hoping my points finally resonate with more people.ReplyCancel

    • Jen - Just read Greg’s comment. Jonas Salk himslef admitted polio cases today are only due to the vaccine. It causes polio. It has also been proven to cause cancer. These are facts. The polio argument is so very inaccurate.ReplyCancel

    • Kathy - The thing with facts is in how you define them. Kristin Bell, like the vast majority of doctors and scientists on earth, knows that there are not “hundreds of thousands of parents at this point in time who faithfully believed their child could “easily handle” the ingredients in the vaccines couldn’t have known otherwise until their children lay crippled, paralyzed, and/or dead in their arms.” Vaccines are blamed for far more than they really cause. They do not cause SIDS or autism, for example. Those are facts.

      Furthermore, I would argue, along with most all of the doctors and scientists on earth, that your blog post here does not actually contain as many facts as you think. Your ideas about disease eradication and vaccine shedding, for example, are quite simply wrong.

      And this is why people who advocate for vaccines care if you vaccinate or not. Because we worry that you have made decisions based not on facts but on very bad misunderstandings of the evidence. We worry about your health, herd immunity, and the health of the vulnerable.ReplyCancel
