Is It Ethical to Kill Children to Save Children?

PR NewsWire

NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Should the government promote a medical intervention that undeniably causes death and serious injury to a minority in order to save the lives of the majority?

Vaccines are credited with saving the lives of millions of people from many diseases, but they have also taken lives. In Vaccine Epidemic: How Corporate Greed, Biased Science, and Coercive Government Threaten Our Human Rights, Our Health, and Our Children, authors Louise Kuo Habakus and Mary Holland explain that the current vaccine program stakes the life of one child over another.  No parents should be compelled to take actions that could cause their child to live a life of suffering, or even die.

Bill Gates recently stated on CNN that people who question the safety of vaccines are liars who are killing children: “So it’s an absolute lie that has killed thousands of kids… the people who go and engage in those anti-vaccine efforts — you know, they, they kill children.”  In reality, it is the people who fail to question the safety of the current vaccine program who may be allowing innocent infants and children to suffer serious injuries, and even death.  Could some of these injuries and deaths have been avoided?

Vaccine Epidemic is pro-human rights, pro-science, and pro-justice for those injured by vaccination. The book is not anti-vaccine; it upholds the right to choose and affirms the international human rights standard of free and informed consent to all medical interventions.  Habakus and Holland urgently call for more science to help identify those people who are most susceptible to vaccine injury. People die from vaccines just as people die from infectious disease. Life is sacred, and one child’s death is not more tragic than another’s. Who gets to make these life-and-death decisions?

Join the authors as they discuss these issues at their book launch event at the New York University School of Law, 40 Washington Square South, New York City, NY on February 18 at 6:30 pm. It is free and open to the public. For more information and to register, go to

Vaccine Epidemic is available on and in bookstores everywhere.
