Recently the big scare story in the media was Ebola. Just a few short months ago the media told endless stories of people dying from the resulting illness from Ebola exposure. We were told how easy it is to get it; how contagious it is if we are exposed and how rapidly it can spread. We saw images of doctors and volunteers who had been diagnosed with it in other countries coming into American with full protective gear and being quarantined until they recovered. We were told about the man who died from it here in America and how his family needed to be quarantined until there was no longer a threat. Speculation was rampant about his possible actions when he arrived in America and he was skewered for those speculations as if they were true. We were told how outrageous it was when a woman who may have been exposed to it broke her quarantine early. Americans were outraged at her irresponsibility. Americans were becoming anxious with constant stories about how hospitals were handling possible Ebola patients. Fear was spreading through our country. Maybe a little too much fear was spreading because suddenly the messages began to change. Suddenly a new perspective began to emerge. Doctors began to talk about how it’s not quite as easy to catch it as they once claimed. The family of the man who died never came down with Ebola and neither did anyone who came in contact with the woman who broke her quarantine, nor anyone who had taken care of those quarantined with the disease. The mass hysteria was suddenly averted by the same entities that created it: the authorities working with the media. Now we are told that measles is much more contagious than Ebola; that we really need to be diligent about this disease; that it is much less likely to kill you than Ebola if you get it, but if your children are exposed, horror awaits! I can’t help but compare this with the recent Ebola coverage, however.
Doctors and researchers ignore parents who best know their children by claiming that evidence of the injury cannot be proven, except that it can and it has. The mainstream media does not acknowledge this. And one would think the media would question why congress created the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) in 1986 and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) in 1988 if vaccines do not harm our children. Could it be that they were created to keep parents from suing pharmaceutical companies when a vaccine injury occurs? Parents must go through this process before they can bring suit against a manufacturer, but once an injury is determined, they are compensated by money in the NVICP, which is collected from a 75 cent fee on every vaccine given. It is a fee you and I pay to keep the manufacturers from having to pay when a child is injured. I wonder why doctors never mention these two significant subjects when asked about vaccine safety. These are questions I want you to begin to ask because I do not have a dog in this fight, so to speak. My son is 26 years old and has had every vaccination recommended when he was young. He is my only child and I will never be a grandmother, so this is about your children and your grandchildren. Let’s look at some facts.
