In a 2010 letter to PBS Frontline following the release of their documentary “The Vaccine Wars,” Jennifer Margulis, PhD writes: “ I am not anti-vaccine, I am pro-questions. Parents should feel free to question their healthcare providers before agreeing to injections that contain substances whose effects may not be fully understood.”
A brave writer and a brave media source give voice to those parent’s who know their child was injured or who died from a vaccine injury. Instead they are ostracized and assigned to the “anti-vaccine cult.” Amy’s courageous remarks and making space to tell of parent’s stories comes at a time when many vaccine safety and awareness advocates, a long with other health practitioners are looking on in shock as prominent holistic physicians are been mysteriously found dead.
Did you know that reporting your child’s vaccine injury to VAERS – the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System is required by law? Does your doctor know that?
Perhaps if all injuries were reported that “significantly small number” would become a red flag for the real number of injuries and deaths from vaccines. Right now it is estimated that only 1 to 10% of the vaccine injured are reporting. Many times doctors will not report injuries in their practice because it goes against the standard of care set forth by the medical and pharmaceutical industries.
Please remember the parents chose to vaccinate their children – and who are now carrying the burned of grief and guilt – were not “anti-vaccine.” They were playing by the rules – doing what they were told by trusted physicians… and now they suffer alone and carry the financial burden. It is time that we have honest conversations about their suffering – so we can prevent others from going through the same pain. That is how they get labeled as “anti-vaxxers,” and their stories are diminished.
All we want are safe vaccines. All we want is to protect our children. Where is the harm in having this conversation?
The science is there.
