a recent federal court ruling that denies there is a link
between a combination of vaccines given to children and
a rise in autism the debate still rages on.
all people had access to was the mainstream media, they
would think that the case is closed on the link between
vaccines and a mysterious and debilitating disease known
as autism, which causes a downward spiral in a child's ability
to communicate and think clearly.
mainstream media pointed to the three highly touted "test
cases" against families who had claimed that their
childrens' autism had been caused by the MMR (mumps-measles-rubella)
vaccine, a combination of vaccines that purportedly immunize
kids against these diseases. The court ruled on Feb. 12
that the families had "failed to establish causation
between MMR vaccines, the mercury-laced vaccine preservative
known as thimerosal, and autism.
an opinion piece posed online, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the
son of the assassinated attorney general and a leading advocate
for autistic children, wrote that the mainstream media joined
the government and its allies in the pharmaceutical industry
"hailing the decisions as proof that the scientific
doubts about vaccine safety had finally been ‘demolished.’”
they apparently missed another case which ended one week
later with a family of an autistic child receiving $800,000
after a court had ruled in June 2007 that they had proven
a link between MMR and autism.
family of 10-year-old Bailey Banks won their case quietly
and without fanfare in June of 2007, but the ruling has
only now come to public attention,” wrote Kennedy.
“In the remarkably clear and eloquent decision, Special
Master Richard Abell ruled that the Bankses had successfully
demonstrated that ‘the MMR vaccine at issue actually
caused the conditions from which Bailey suffered and continues
to suffer.’ ”
cites a number of other recent cases, which also sided with
the families of autistic children: “Medical records
associated with these proceedings clearly tell the tale.
. . . the children have all the classic symptoms of regressive
autism; following vaccination a perfectly healthy child
experiences high fever, seizures, and other illnesses, then
gradually, over about three months, loses language, the
ability to make eye contact, becomes “over-focused”
and engages in stereotypical head banging and screaming
and then suffers developmental delays characteristic of
to these dedicated families, the debate over the link between
vaccines and autism still carries on—in spite of the
well-funded medical-industrial complex and its lackeys and
mouthpieces in government and the mainstream media.
