Autism: Is the government covering up for the drug companies?
May 22nd, 2009
The other side of the autism debate provided by a mother who has a child with autism
opinions of Ginger Taylor
This story is a response to Utah Stories previous article on autism.
You cite three cases in which The HHS's vaccine court ruled our vaccines as a cause of a child's autism, but you didn't mention the 10 cases that were won in that court by autistic children.
Three of those 10 families have gone public, The Polings, The Banks and The Hiatts.
The Poling case is the only one that got mainstream media coverage.
Only ten days after the court said MMR doesn't cause autism, they said that MMR caused Baily Banks autism.
"In his conclusion, Special Master Abell wrote:
The Court found that Bailey's ADEM was both caused-in-fact and proximately caused by his vaccination. It is well-understood that the vaccination at issue can cause ADEM, and the Court found, based upon a full reading and hearing of the pertinent facts in this case, that it did actually cause the ADEM. Furthermore, Bailey's ADEM was severe enough to cause lasting, residual damage, and retarded his developmental progress, which fits under the generalized heading of Pervasive Developmental Delay, or PDD. The Court found that Bailey would not have suffered this delay but for the administration of the MMR vaccine, and that this chain of causation was not too remote, but was rather a proximate sequence of cause and effect leading inexorably from vaccination to Pervasive Developmental Delay.
And he added this:
Petitioner's theory of PDD caused by vaccine-related ADEM causally connects the vaccination and the ultimate injury, and does so by explaining a logical sequence of cause and effect showing that the vaccination was the ultimate reason for the injury.
Shouldn't we be shouting a collective, "WTF?" to The Department of Health and Human Services?
Here is the thing, when the Department of Health and Human Services puts the Department of Health and Human Services on trial, and the Department of Health and Human Services wins, that is not news. When they put themselves on trial and loose, as in the Poling, Banks and Hiatt cases THAT IS NEWS!
THOSE are the cases we should be demanding answers from the government on.
The Poling family has requested that their daughters case files can be made public so everyone can know the reasoning behind HHS's decision, but HHS isn't sharing any of their insight into WHY Hanna deserves a million bucks for her vaccine injury.
So let's not boil this debate down to scientist v. tv stars. There are MANY in the scientific and public health community who believe that vaccines are involved in the autism epidemic.
And apparently HHS itself does too because it keeps paying claims for autistic kids while trying to keep the payments quiet.
Do yourself a favor, check out the VICP's vaccine injury table
You will note that "encepalopathy" is listed as a compensated injury for DTaP and MMR.
Then scroll down to the middle of the page and look at the symptoms of encepalopathy for 18 month olds:
- Loss of eye contact
- Unresponsive to stimuli except for loud shouts
- Seems disconnected from the world around him
THAT is a description of a child with "autism".
THAT was a description of MY son after his DTaP shot for which he was diagnosed with "autism".
The government has ruled that vaccines do and do not cause autism. Are You ok with that solid, definitive, case closed argument?
I REALLY hope not because that closes the case on the public accepting that the dramatic increase in autism cases has nothing to do with harmful chemicals introduced into infants bodies.

Thank you Ginger for asking the question the mainstream press never does. They never note that someone will be held responsible if it's clearly shown that unsafe vaccines have damaged a generation of children. Lots of people have everything at stake in seeing that does not happen.
Thanks, Ginger, for this concisely-informed response to just one side of this issue. It is extremely important that both sides be heard; because the practice of vaccination (NOT 'immunization'; more accurately, sensitization) is not the wondrous medical modality that it has been cracked up to be by the Powers That Be in both organized medicine and the government (both subject to the controlling hand of Big Pharma). Yes, they have done good; and, they have done a lot of harm. Think an epidemic of chronic illness. Think autoimmune diseases, and neurological disorders, and...and...
The white-coated priesthood of our day and age have feet of clay. So what's new? The powerful, direct effect on our health and finances is new. And that goes directly to the health of our nation. Our collective health, as well as individually, and in family constellations.
There are other treatments for the childhood diseases that don't have the damnable side effects to them that the vaccines have. It's time and past for wholistic medicine to rule the day. Not the corrupt medical-pharmaceutical-government complex that has been in charge for far too long.
Read, parents. Read both sides. And claim your right to giving your informed consent to this, as any, medical procedure.
