Why Americans Should
Resist Forced Vaccines

By Pat Shannan

.Osler’s Modern Medicine, Volume I stated: “With the greatest care, however, certain [vaccination] risks are present, and so it is unwise for the physician to force the operation upon those who are unwilling, or to give assurance of absolute harmlessness.”
This was nearly a century ago, and not much has changed.
Given today’s hysteria over a nonexistent swine flu threat and possible mandating of experimental, untested, toxic (and likely bio-engineered vaccines), it’s appropriate to review early fears about their dangers, when evidence first surfaced and concerns were raised. In 1920, Charles Michael Higgins’ Horrors of Vaccination Exposed and Illustrated: Petition to the President to Abolish Compulsory Vaccination in Army and Navy (now available in a new 2008 edition) issued a public challenge to health departments when it charged in a headline: “Deaths from Vaccination Denied and Concealed—More Deaths from Vaccination than from Smallpox.”
Higgins charged that he could prove “from their death certificates and vital records, now concealed and withheld from the public, that there have been more deaths from vaccination than from smallpox in every year for the past 15 years in the city and state of New York.”
Referring to compulsory vaccinations as “medical barbarism,” Higgins petitioned President Woodrow Wilson to stop mandating them for Army and Navy personnel. He cited facts he called shocking, including death certificates of primary school aged children “all killed in one week in September 1915 from vaccination resulting in lockjaw and septicemia” and numerous others dead from “vaccine infection.” Yet throughout 1915, only three people died from smallpox. Higgins bluntly stated that “compulsory disease as a condition for public schooling or for service in [the] Army and Navy is medically barbarous and legally unconstitutional, and should be abolished.”
From the American Revolution through the Spanish- American War, smallpox vaccinations were administered. In World War One, typhoid was added, and in World War Two, shots were given for smallpox, typhoid, typhus, tetanus, cholera, diphtheria, influenza, scarlet fever, plague, paratyphoidA and B and yellow fever. The Korean War adopted the same regimen, and Vietnam added immunizations for polio, tetanus-diphtheria, measles and meningitis.
For the gulf wars, still more were added for anthrax, botulinum, adenovirus types 4 and 7, hepatitis B, MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) and rabies—a virtual toxic stew. Add a dash of depleted uranium and you have “Gulf War Illness,” which is having a devastating and lifelong effect on many thousands of U.S. soldiers, even as the Pentagon continues to stonewall on the subject.
The Afghan and Iraq wars added varicella (chickenpox), hepatitis A and pneumonia, plus the upcoming swine flu vaccine. In combination, U.S. military forces now get a greater than ever toxic brew of up to 20 dangerous inoculations plus booster shots (including for diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis DTaP) that assure damage to (or destruction of) their immune systems followed by serious health problems later on.
Today it’s at an intolerable level. In 1988, a portion of a brief New York Times obituary read: “On April 5, Dr. Robert S. Mendelsohn, a physician, author and critic of the medical establishment, died after a brief illness. . . . He was 61 years old. Besides teaching at the University of Illinois and Northwestern University, he was best known for his 1979 bestseller, Confessions of a Medical Heretic, in which he cautioned against ‘the harmful impact upon your life of doctors, drugs and hospitals.’ In a November 1984 East West Journal article, he called immunizations a ‘medical time bomb,’ and said the ‘greatest threat to childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them.’”


In his Murder by Injection, Eustace Mullins quotes Virginia doctor Henry Bybee as publicly stating, “My honest opinion is that vaccine is the cause of more disease and suffering than anything I could name. I believe that such diseases as cancer, syphilis, cold sores and many other disease conditions are the direct results of vaccination.” And Dr. Rebecca Carley calls vaccinations “The true weapons of mass destruction causing VIDS (vaccine induced diseases.)”
Dr. J. Anthony Morris, former FDA Vaccine Control head said: “There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good.”
He concluded that “There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway.”
Dr. Gerhard Buchwald concluded from the results of 150 trials that “vaccination is not necessary, not useful, (and) does not protect. There are twice as many casualties from vaccination as from AIDS.”
It appears that even if taking any vaccination shot did prevent what it was supposed to, by submitting to it, one also makes himself a lifelong customer of the medical profession.



What’s in a Vaccine?

MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT AWARE that vaccines typically contain, in addition to the viral and bacterial RNA or DNA, many of the following fillers (according to Dr. JosephMercola): aluminumhydroxide, aluminum phosphate, ammonium sulfate, amphotericin B, animal tissues: pig blood, horse blood, rabbit brain, dog kidney, monkey kidney, chick embryo, chicken egg, duck egg, calf (bovine) serumbetapropiolactone, fetal bovine serum, formaldehyde, formalin gelatin, glycerol, human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue), hydrolized gelatin, monosodium glutamate (MSG), neomycin, neomycin sulfate, phenol red indicator, phenoxyethanol (antifreeze), potassium diphosphate, potassium monophosphate, polymyxin B, polysorbate 20, polysorbate 80, porcine (pig) pancreatic hydrolysate of casein, residual MRC5 proteins, sorbitol, sucrose thimerosal (mercury), tri(n)butylphosphate, Vero cells, washed sheep red blood cells and more.
