The Science, Ethics and Politics of Vaccine Mandates
(when you assume that vaccines are safe)

Written by Louise Habakus


This is a long post but I encourage you to read my remarks. Compulsory vaccination represents a severe limitation of our human, civil, individual and parental rights. It is very important to understand the arguments and justifications for vaccine mandates offered by doctors and public health officials. While the public health system usually appears anonymous and impersonal, a conference like the one I attended this week is an opportunity to see the individuals behind the system. The people who participated in the program are among the leaders upholding vaccine mandates in our country.

A Cancer Spreading in the Custody Court System

“Times Up”

September 16, 2010

By Barry Goldstein

The concept of Custody-Visitation Scandal Cases was developed because of the frequency of extreme results in custody cases in which children are endangered, safe, protective mothers are denied any meaningful relationship with their children and the results appear to be the opposite of what the evidence and the well being of the children would require. The Battered Mothers Custody Conference was started in response to what we believed were too many of these tragic cases to be viewed as exceptions.

Marc Baskett doesn’t remember the head-on crash or his trip to the ER, but he believes what doctors did in those first few hours saved him.

“On the Glasgow coma scale your brain normally activates at a 15, and being completely brain dead is a 3, and I was a 4, so I was almost completely … gone,” he said.

The nationwide HPV vaccination campaign is now underway, and will help protect more than 57,000 schoolgirls from developing cervical cancer as adults.

The vaccine – Gardasil – is free of charge and is being offered to all girls attending first and second year of second level schools.

In Ireland, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in the country among females aged 15 to 44. HPV or Human Papillomavirus, is proven to cause cervical cancer. It is a common virus – about 80% of people will have a HPV infection during their lifetime.

Abstract: Infectious agents contribute to the environmental factors involved in the development of autoimmune diseases possibly through molecular mimicry mechanisms. Hence, it is feasible that vaccinations may also contribute to the mosaic of autoimmunity. Evidence for the association of vaccinations and the development of these diseases is presented in this review. Infrequently reported post-vaccination autoimmune diseases include systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory myopathies, multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and vasculitis. In addition, we will discuss macrophagic myofasciitis, aluminum containing vaccines, and the recent evidence for autoimmunity following human papilloma virus vaccine.

Teens who have had an abortion are no more likely to become depressed or have low self-esteem than their peers whose pregnancies don’t end in abortion, reported a press release by the Guttmacher Institute Sept. 24. The Oregon State University study found that having experienced low self-esteem and depression before having an abortion were the factors most closely linked to experiencing these issues again. A 2008 study by the American Psychological Association found no evidence of mental health problems in adult women following abortion, but because of a scarcity of evidence on teens, no conclusions were drawn.

AUSTIN, Texas — High levels of the stress hormone cortisol play a critical role in blocking testosterone’s influence on competition and domination, according to new psychology research at The University of Texas at Austin.

The study, led by Robert Josephs, professor of psychology at The University of Texas at Austin, and Pranjal Mehta, assistant professor of psychology at the University of Oregon, is the first to show that two hormones—testosterone and cortisol—jointly regulate dominance.

Like most women in their late 50s, when Gabrielle Neal started to feel the odd ache and pain, she blamed the menopause and her age.

‘I laughingly put my pelvic pain down to a sign I’d need an imminent hip ­replacement,’ she recalls. ‘The lower back pains I blamed on our having just moved house and lifting and lugging things that ­perhaps I shouldn’t.’

Genetically Modified Soy Diets Lead To Ovary And Uterus Changes In Rats

If you’re still eating genetically modified (GM) soybeans and you plan on having kids, a Brazilian study may make you think again about what you put in your mouth. Female rats fed GM soy for 15 months showed significant changes in their uterus and reproductive cycle, compared to rats fed organic soy or those raised without soy. Published in The Anatomical Record in 2009, this finding adds to the mounting body of evidence suggesting that GM foods contribute to reproductive disorders (see summary at end).
