Vaccine Studies… “the science is settled” and the evidence cannot be denied

There is nothing more important than protecting our population, especially the most vulnerable, from risks. If there is a risk, there must be a choice. Vaccines (lab-created biologics) are not without their risks. The statement “Vaccines are safe and effective” is simply unfounded. Protection of informed consent is essential in a free society, but that is threatened today.

Independent bodies such as the Cochrane Collaboration, which is considered Level I hierarchy of medical evidence, are unable to determine if vaccination prevents primary disease and reports safety issues. This is a lot of information, so it is broken down by the vaccine. I have thoroughly covered measles and chickenpox, so they are not included in this post. You can find those here and here. Quotes below are directly obtained from studies.

 

COMBO VACCINES

In 2012, Bar-On, Goldberg, Hellman, & Leibovici evaluated DTP-HBV and HIB vaccines. Overall, they reported “Data for the primary outcome (prevention of disease) were lacking” and reported increased bias within performed studies. There was a reassessment of this in 2017, and those authors were unable to perform the study.

 

HEPATITIS B

Mathew, El Dib, Mathew, Boxall, & Brok evaluated Hepatitis B in 2009 and stated “Twelve trials were eligible. All had high risk of bias and reporting was inconsistent.” They went on further to state:

“In people not previously exposed to hepatitis B, vaccination has unclear effect on the risk of developing infection, as compared to no vaccination. The risk of lacking protective antibody levels as well as serious and non-serious adverse events appear comparable among recipients and non-recipients of hepatitis B vaccine.”

A review evaluating Hepatitis B booster vaccination conducted in 2016 reported, “There were no eligible randomised clinical trials fulfilling the inclusion criteria of this review.”

In 2017, Eke, Eleje, Eke, Xia, & Liu performed a study evaluating the Hepatitis B vaccine on newborns of seropositive women, and they stated:

“Due to very low to low quality evidence found in this review, we are uncertain of the effect of benefit of antenatal HBIG administration to the HBV-infected mothers on newborn outcomes, such as HBsAg, HBV-DNA, and HBeAg compared with no intervention. The results of the effects of HBIG on HBsAg and HBeAg are surrogate outcomes (raising risk of indirectness), and we need to be critical while interpreting the findings. We found no data on newborn mortality or maternal mortality or both, or other serious adverse events. Well-designed randomised clinical trials are needed to determine the benefits and harms of HBIG versus placebo in prevention of MTCT of HBV.”

 

TETANUS AND PERTUSSIS

In 2014, Zhang, Prietsch, Axelsson, & Halperin reported in a tetanus study that:

“Ethical barriers to the inclusion of a placebo group, combined with the evidence that whole-cell vaccines are not uniformly effective, will create problems for future efficacy studies. Such studies will need to include a self-selected, non-immunised and potentially biased control group, in order to provide an estimate of absolute vaccine efficacy. Further, analyses of the data from existing placebo-controlled studies, with the aim of determining characteristics of participants and their environment which affect vaccine efficacy, will permit future studies to improve these estimates of absolute efficacy by adjusting for such factors.

Finally, the lack of a laboratory correlate of efficacy means that the testing of new acellular pertussis vaccines currently requires prolonged and expensive clinical trials. Research into determining such a laboratory correlate should be a priority.”

In 2015, Demicheli, Barale, & Rivetti evaluated the studies on effects of TDaP vaccines in pregnant women concluding, “For our primary outcomes, there was no high-quality evidence according to GRADE assessments.” They went on to elaborate on two chosen trials and said:

“One study (1182 infants) assessed the effectiveness of tetanus toxoid in comparison with influenza vaccine in preventing neonatal tetanus deaths.

Another study, involving 8641 children, assessed the effectiveness of tetanus-diphtheria toxoid in comparison with cholera toxoid in preventing neonatal mortality after one or two doses.”

These two studies qualified to be evaluated, and both studies do not have true saline-placebo controls as the ‘placebo arm’ was administered a vaccine including adjuvanted components.

 

PNEUMOCOCCAL

In 2012, review by Moberley, Holden, Tatham, & Andrews on a Pneumococcal Pneumonia Vaccine (PPV) they report:

“PPV was not associated with substantial reductions in all-cause mortality (OR 0.90, 95% CI 0.74 to 1.09; random-effects model, I2 statistic = 69%). Vaccine efficacy against primary outcomes appeared poorer in adults with chronic illness. Non-RCTs provided evidence for protection against IPD in populations for whom the vaccine is currently utilised (OR 0.48, 95% CI 0.37 to 0.61; random-effects model, I2 statistic = 31%). This review did not consider adverse events as it was outside the scope of the review.”

In a 2015 review of evidence for the use of pneumococcal vaccines in pregnancy, Chaithongwongwatthana, Yamasmit, Limpongsanurak, Lumbiganon, & Tolosa reports:

“The overall quality of evidence is low for primary outcomes. Most outcomes had wide confidence intervals crossing the line of no effect, and most of the included trials had small numbers of participants and few events which led to downgrading evidence for imprecision of findings.

There is insufficient evidence to assess whether pneumococcal vaccination during pregnancy could reduce infant infections.”

 

ROTAVIRUS

In the 2010 review by Soares-Weiser, Goldberg, Tamimi, Leibovici, & Pitan on rotavirus in preventing diarrhea, the study reported:

“Evidence about safety, and about mortality or prevention of severe outcomes, is scarce and inconclusive… Rotavirus vaccines can prevent diarrhoea caused by rotavirus, but we are still not clear about safety and whether they prevent deaths.”

Because the vaccine evaluated in the above study was taken off the market due to intussusception, there was an updated review conducted in 2012. Soares-Weiser, MacLehose, Bergman, Ben-Aharon, Nagpal, Goldberg, Pitan, & Cunliffe conclude:

“Serious adverse events were reported in 4565 out of 99,438 children vaccinated with RV1 and in 1884 out of 78,226 children vaccinated with RV5. Fifty-eight cases of intussusception were reported in 97,246 children after RV1 vaccination, and 34 cases in 81,459 children after RV5 vaccination.

The vaccine efficacy is lower in high-mortality countries; however, due to the higher burden of disease, the absolute benefit is higher in these settings. No increased risk of serious adverse events including intussusception was detected, but post-introduction surveillance studies are required to detect rare events associated with vaccination.

Of the 41 RCTs analysed in this review, 25 (61%) reported an adequate generation of allocation sequence, while the method of assignment was unclear in the remaining studies. The methods used to conceal allocation were considered adequate in 19 trials (46%), and unclear in the remaining studies.

Incomplete outcome data was adequately addressed in 28 studies (68%), unclear in 12 studies, and was not addressed adequately in one study. Sixteen trials were free from selective reporting bias, eight were not, and the remaining trials were unclear. Most trials were sponsored by the industry and it was not possible to assess if they were free of other biases; two recent trials performed in Africa were considered free from other biases.”

 

INFLUENZA

In 2018, Jefferson, Rivetti, Di Pietrantonj, and Demicheli reported in an influenza vaccine study in healthy children that, “Only a few studies were well designed and conducted, and the impact of studies at high risk of bias varied across the outcomes evaluated.”

The 2018 study on influenza vaccination in adults conducted by Demicheli, Jefferson, Ferroni, Rivetti, & Di Pietrantonj, they report:

“We found 52 clinical trials of over 80,000 adults. We were unable to determine the impact of bias on about 70% of the included studies due to insufficient reporting of details. Around 15% of the included studies were well designed and conducted. We focused on reporting of results from 25 studies that looked at inactivated vaccines. Injected influenza vaccines probably have a small protective effect against influenza and ILI (moderate-certainty evidence), as 71 people would need to be vaccinated to avoid one influenza case, and 29 would need to be vaccinated to avoid one case of ILI. Vaccination may have little or no appreciable effect on hospitalisations (low-certainty evidence) or number of working days lost.

Fifteen included RCTs were industry funded (29%).”

In the 2018 study performed by Demicheli, Jefferson, Di Pietrantonj, Ferroni, Thorning, Thomas, & Rivetti regarding influenza vaccination in older adults, they concluded:

“The evidence for a lower risk of influenza and ILI with vaccination is limited by biases in the design or conduct of the studies. Lack of detail regarding the methods used to confirm the diagnosis of influenza limits the applicability of this result. The available evidence relating to complications is of poor quality, insufficient, or old and provides no clear guidance for public health regarding the safety, efficacy, or effectiveness of influenza vaccines for people aged 65years or older. Society should invest in research on a new generation of influenza vaccines for the elderly.”

 

There you have it! Of the available studies about vaccines, this is the available analysis…

  • Lack of
  • Limited by bias
  • Low-quality
  • Low-certainty
  • Uncertain
  • High-risk of bias
  • Inconclusive
  • Insufficient

Don’t believe me? Go have a look for yourself. These evaluations were made by medical doctors of an independent, non-profit organization that are free from conflicts of interest. This demonstrates that there is no evidence of safety, nor efficacy, of these vaccines. Further, evaluating the use of several vaccines at the same time is absent from the literature. We need to create an independent council that can evaluate the overall safety of the childhood vaccine schedule. We also need the ability to evaluate vaccines for all ages, as mandatory vaccine laws are entertained in legislative houses today.

The good news is that the Cochrane Hepato-Biliary Group has proposed a systematic review on the use of aluminum adjuvants in vaccines this year (2019). This is going to be a monumental study that has implications for the entire vaccine schedule as most vaccines contain aluminum adjuvants. I eagerly await the results.

HEAR THIS WELL: Your rights to medical freedom and informed consent are being threatened TODAY. These are current vaccinations that are being tested.

Vaccine Trial Tracker

Maybe you don’t care about the childhood vaccine schedule. Maybe you don’t have children and never plan to do so. Maybe you believe in your heart of hearts that vaccines are for the greater good. That is fine. That is YOUR choice (for now). However, if a mandatory vaccination law is passed, there is NO LIMIT to the number of vaccines that are authorized to be injected into YOU, an adult.

What happens if it is no longer your choice? What happens when Stage 4 of the clinical trial (use in populations and post-marketing studies) determines that a new vaccine causes harm and you did not have a choice? Well, by that point it does not matter. You have NO CONTROL over your health. You have NO CONTROL over what goes into your body at the discretion of pharmaceutical companies and government agencies. Then what? Public health officials can essentially go door-to-door to mass vaccinate communities. Is this what you want? Because if you do not stand up now, this is what you will get. It has been done before and it can be done again.

Your voice must be heard. Informed consent must be protected. A law mandating a medical intervention eliminates informed consent, as you no longer have the choice and therefore do not need to know the risks. Last year (2018), HEPLISAV-B was approved for the adult vaccination schedule. Just look up ACIP vote last year on this issue and how exactly they voted this vaccine through, here is one link. Certainly, that brings you to pause. Still feel like lining up for the future HIV vaccine?

Above all, we need to focus on safety. Even if you are a proponent for mandatory vaccines, you should be able to prove their safety and efficacy. You should be 100% confident in what an unbiased safety council will find when evaluating these biologics. So why not prove it? This easily accessed petition will help squander this debate.

You can find state-specific information on vaccine laws here. But in the meantime, #IDoNotConsent. A society that touts personal liberty should be free from coercion. Informed consent, body autonomy, individualized care, and evidence-based practice are cornerstones to today’s medical practice; without these things, we can expect higher profits for pharmaceutical/medical technology and insurance companies, higher risks, and worsening health outcomes. Stand up for yourself (and future generations), before you’re forced to sit down and blindly accept medical interventions.

Shalom, Light, and Love.

The Art of Medical Kidnapping: Alfie Evans

If you have not heard of this, that is mainstream media working at its finest. Only social media will show you the harsh truth about the world and governments. Take the time to catch up with a quick Google, Twitter, Facebook, or another social platform search then return to this post.

THIS IS SOCIALIZED MEDICINE. Is this really what you want the U.S. to have?! Should this be the standard? Should governments choose who receives and doesn’t receive medical care? Should insurance companies make those choices instead (because they certainly do)? Don’t be fooled… medical kidnapping already happens in America. That’s right! This is why informed consent should be heavily protected and upheld.

I cannot begin to fathom how these parents are functioning or coping. Honestly, I don’t want to imagine that reality. Their rights to their child were taken from them by the government who ruled to end this toddler’s life. The “high courts” ruled to end his life even though another hospital was willing to take over his care and Italy granted him citizenship to get him there (due to the plea of his parents). The hospital, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, could have removed their ties and let the patient go, but they denied him this opportunity. It wasn’t about resources, as the helicopters were ready and the Italian hospital was on standby.

Alfie Evans was extubated on Monday at 9 pm UK time, and he lives over 36 hours later. He breathes on his own, yet the hospital REFUSED to let him leave and withheld water for almost 24 hours. They planned to hold him prisoner until death. This is appalling. A second opinion hasn’t been given to him or his family. A second emergency court appeal denied his transition of care again. Another doctor and hospital (in his country of citizenship) are NOT ALLOWED to treat this patient. Rumors are that he is allowed to go home to die and strictly forbidden to seek alternate care. WHAT?!

Why is Alder Hey so adamant to control the end of his life? Are they hiding something? Have they mismanaged his care? This level of government control is frightening and should be a wake-up alarm to people around the world. Go ahead a look into Adler Hey and their organ harvesting mishaps. It may be unrelated to this case, but their hands are soiled with past crimes.

Let’s Talk About Parental Rights and Responsibilities

When you decide to have a child, it’s a big deal. You are in charge of another human life for at least the next 18 years. Sometimes this is longer. When you decide to have a child, you fear all of the unknowns. You are terrified of messing it up, so you research just about everything…

You look for the safest car seat. You spend hours on various safety websites. You compare brands and testimonies. You make sure it fits your car. You even find the safest seat in your car. You may (and should) get it inspected by a certified car seat inspector for proper securement. Some even buy a whole new car when they’re expecting! We did… a few times.

You look for the best crib and mattress. You’re scared to death of SIDS (which, by the way, is not suffocation) so you look for a breathable mattress. Maybe it is hypoallergenic or some fancy cooling gel type. You spend time comparing reviews.

You look for a sleeper for an additional place to sleep. You know infants sleep a lot and want eyes on them all the time, so you buy a sleeper. You might want them in your room for the first few weeks or months and can’t fit the crib, so you buy a sleeper. You don’t buy any sleeper, you buy the one that rocks, changes positions, and plays music or soothing sounds. You buy the one that gets the best ratings. You want ultimate comfort for your baby.

You look for a stroller. Does it come with the car seat? What if I want one for jogging or different terrain? Are the tires plastic or rubber? Does it come with a weather shield? Maybe you opt to buy a baby carrier. Which one is the most comfortable? Should I try babywearing? What brands are the best? You read and read.

You look for a diaper bag. Am I going to carry bottles? How many pockets does it have? Does it have extra cooling space? Can I wash it? Do I like the straps? How many diapers will it fit? How much clothing can I pack?

You look at diapers. You have a friend that uses cloth, maybe you look into it and reach out to her. What about disposables? Which is cheapest? What brand is best? Which ones won’t give my baby a rash? What about rash cream? I need some of that too, right? You look into it.

You research some of these things, maybe all of them, maybe more… because this is YOUR baby. You care for them. The minute they hit your chest, your whole world is different. You have a fierce love for this tiny human. You will do anything for them; then the nurse comes at them with a needle. They cry. You cry. Did you ever look into it? Did you ever look at newborn interventions? You had a birth plan, did you include your baby? If so, you did a lot more research. You looked at cord clamping, skin-to-skin, and indications for “eye goop.” You looked up newborn vaccinations.

The hospital or staff told you it was routine. They told you it was mandatory, and they had to have them, but is this YOUR child or does this new baby belong to the hospital? Does this baby belong to the pediatrician? Do they belong to the government? How about your state? Do you think this baby belongs to the CDC? After all, they are the ones who proposed the vaccination schedule. The CDC and ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) are the ones that recommend the vaccines. Do they own your child? No? Then why are they making decisions for your child?

You should look up the schedule. You should research the diseases, their history, and their treatment. You should research the vaccines. You have the ability at your fingertips. You are the parent. This is your responsibility. You did it for everything else, so why is this someone else’s territory? These substances go into your newborn’s body. This developing infant gets these biologics… you should know what they are. This is your baby. This is your responsibility. If you want to pass that responsibility off to another person, go for it. That is your choice. Nothing about that is “normal.” Passing off parental responsibility should not be seen as the norm. What should be seen as the norm is parents making informed decisions and having open discussions with healthcare professionals. That should be normal.

Remember, most doctors are not scientists. They don’t usually know the intricacies of vaccine manufacturing, “screening,” testing, approval, courts, payouts, and events reporting. Pediatricians follow protocols mandated upon them by entities that don’t go to med school. Even medical journals are becoming drug advertisements (see video). The art of medicine has been drained by corporate interests, demands of insurance companies, and government protocols. Doctors have been shackled to mandates from people who haven’t been to med school. Providers worry more about litigation than medicine. They cannot deviate, for they will be questioned. Even if it is in the best interest of the patient, they are forced to do otherwise. There is no money in wellness. Think about that. It is no secret that we have the sickest developed nation, and our children are now subject to our poor health habits. Something isn’t working, and we all know governments destroy just about everything. They destroy our money, relationships with other countries, relations within our society with the help of mainstream media, personal rights (there is no shortage of that). So, back to those rights…

Right to body autonomy means that you have ownership of your body. It is your own and you control it. This also goes for your children. They own their body and have the right to their body. You make decisions for them, until they have the mental capacity to do so for themselves. If you didn’t have body autonomy, you could be taken from your home for no reason, imprisoned, tested upon. Somebody could break your bones, stab you, beat you and you’d have no recourse. If you don’t own your body, who does? Right to bodily autonomy is the foundation of liberty.

How is it that in today’s America, in what’s supposed to be a “freed” country, parents are pushed around by health care professionals and government bodies to inject biologics into their children? How is that possible? This is not individual liberty. This is a medical mandate reminiscent of Hitler’s Nazi Medical Experiments.

It is time to rise, parents. You are raising future America. Is it going to be a place where adults don’t believe they have a right to their body? Will it be a place where the government decides who gets what medical interventions? What happens when millions are maimed and killed by said interventions? Without the right to body autonomy, you won’t have a choice, and they won’t have a consequence. Sounds like the predicament we already face with our infants.

Children are the responsibility of their parents, let’s not diminish that role. Parents need to arm themselves with knowledge. Read like you did when preparing for a newborn and baby-proofing your home. We must empower ourselves and each other with the strong message of being responsible for our children (and self) and becoming more educated. There is always more to learn.

Shalom, light, and love.

Lesson #3.5: Education is Key to Informed Consent, Everything Else is Coercion

Part 2 of 2.

Aside from the “medical neglect” fiasco, the nurse felt like the pediatrician involving the DA, PD, and CPS stemmed from a huge misunderstanding. The pediatrician hadn’t been in to speak with me since she threatened to call the very people who visited the afternoon prior. So, the nurse convened a meeting. The pediatrician, charge nurse, and my primary nurse came in. They spoke their side. I spoke mine. I questioned everything. I got vague answers. She didn’t care to see what I compiled on my laptop. I questioned the dangers, showing her the insert. The nurses downplayed the adverse effects listed, saying the neurological effects were for older populations. One even said the neurological risks were with multiple vaccines and not for this vaccine (though, it is written in its specific insert). Somehow the immature immune system and developing organs of a newborn are more adept to take on this vaccine than an adult with fully functioning immune systems and mature organs? Or, do we ignore presentations in infants? Perhaps, we call these presentations and conditions “idiopathic” and SIDS.

My husband arrived with the kids. We discussed the issues as a group. Well, they discussed. To stop the pediatrician from prying and fear of something happening to take our children from us, we consented. Under duress. I see now that this was not truly informed consent. Consent is an act of freewill. I should have protected him better. I didn’t.

Immediately after the vaccine (over 30 hours into his life), my infant developed horizontal nystagmus every time his gaze drifted. I pointed it out, and the pediatrician did not address it. This persisted for about 2-3 weeks. At his follow-up visit, I mentioned it again and the new pediatrician did not address it. At his one month visit, the nurse and pediatrician asked for clarification about his milestone questionnaire. “He sleeps 20 hours a day?!” “Yep. Including nursing sessions, he only has 4 hours of wakefulness.” That was an overestimate. It was sometime between month 2 and 3 when he started to come around.

I spent months following his birth compiling my research and knowledge. I was not prepared for the day of his birth, and I was going to be prepared for the in-clinic visit. I am prepared today. I even researched the adjuvant ingredients. Adjuvants are substances that the body would identify as foreign and mount a “stronger immune response” toward, at least that is the theory. They’ve used Aluminum in vaccines for so long that it is assumed to be “safe” because vaccines are assumed to be safe. See how that works?

Aluminum (Al) is present in our environment. We consume it. The EPA regulates the “safe” amount of aluminum in our water. Remember, there is a difference between consuming substances that confront your gastrointestinal tract (first line of defense) and bypassing all that and placing it into your muscle for direct absorption (sources calculate absorption within 10 minutes or sustained for weeks). Aluminum is poorly absorbed in the GI tract; this has been studied. Intramuscular (IM) aluminum has not been studied. The DHHS and Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) states that “healthy serum levels of Aluminum are 1-3 mcg per liter.” A healthy adult (upper-end 5.5 liters of blood) would have a maximum serum Al level of 16.5 mcg. A newborn infant would have a max of 0.6 mcg Al for their entire blood volume. A single dose of the Hep B vaccine contains 225-500 mcg of Aluminum. TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE AT THE VERY LEAST. That is 375 times the healthy serum level for an infant! Are. We. Serious?!

The equivalent, 375 times the safety limit, for an adult is a 6,187.5 mcg Al injection. Who volunteers to test the effects of that? No? Does this not pose valid concerns? Health agencies say the amount of Al in vaccines is “extremely low.” By what standards? Why aren’t we questioning this adjuvant? It’s a neurotoxin, yet we give it to babies within minutes of life. A reckless, in my opinion, and clearly unsafe amount of it. What are the consequences of the entire Al quantity being released systemically within 10 minutes? How does that differ from a sustained release over time? Why don’t we study absorption IM of Aluminum? (Side note: I recently reviewed some documents and it looks like 2 doses of Hep B were given to my newborn, one of each type, in one single injection.)

But hey, correlation doesn’t equal causation and my healthy newborn may have coincidentally developed the eye drift and twitches 30 hours into life. My baby was simply categorized as “a sleepy baby.” Extreme drowsiness is a documented symptom of aluminum toxicity, but he was just an infant. How would we know? We have no qualms with too much sleep. If an adult acted that way, we would do a slew of tests because that isn’t normal. That’s what they tell us about anything developing after a vaccine. It is a coincidence that it developed after injection. This was a healthy newborn. That was not a coincidence. The ATSDR even reports “neurological effects” due to toxic levels of Aluminum. Don’t take my word for it, go fact check me on all of this. I’ll provide you some links.

If I only knew then what I know now, I would have demanded more from the pediatrician than a nod in your direction when I pointed out your nystagmus twice. I would have advocated better for you. I would have pressed them to acknowledge the concerns. I would have pointed out all of these facts, but mama was still learning. If I knew then what I know now, I would have stood my ground for you. You depend on me, and I won’t fail you again. Guaranteed.

Shalom, light, and love.

Lesson #3: Education is Key to Informed Consent, Everything Else is Coercion

Part 1 of 2.

When our third child was born, I was not prepared. I was 41 weeks, and I still feel guilty for how ill-prepared I was the morning after his birth. No, I’m not talking about the car seats we installed, crib we dusted off, clothes we dug in boxes to find… I’m talking his birth vaccines. My midwife and I had spoken extensively about my wishes, and she agreed. I didn’t birth with her or that facility. I will say my obstetrician was excellent, and my nurses were incredible (minus one or two), but the pediatrician was out of line.

I declined the Hep B vaccine. She came in three or four times saying he needed it and it was safe. I said no each time. During her last intrusion, she said she spoke to her supervisors and was going to make some calls. I told her to do what she had to do; he wasn’t getting the vaccine. She didn’t come back. Were they going to inoculate him against my will?! They can’t do that. That’s a direct violation of human rights. Were they going to take him and seize custody?! I’ve heard rumors of this… I won’t let them! I asked my nurse to grab the vaccine insert from the vaccine lot; she brought it to me quickly. Boom. Proof. The adverse events were clearly written.

I was exhausted. I had already been up around 30 hours, in which time I had a baby! My husband had gone home earlier to relieve our friend who was with our other two, but now I was panicked. Stress, exhaustion, and panic were a recipe for disaster. I called him. He said he would come and bring my laptop. I hurried to pull my files. I couldn’t access my desktop, so I went to the databases to grab articles. I couldn’t find my 1000 peer-reviewed studies file anywhere. Why was the internet SO SLOW?! I didn’t even have Word on this laptop. It was a mess. I had compiled some files, but it wasn’t organized.

It was 5 pm now; I was still copying files from databases. My nurse walks in, nervous. CPS and the police were in the unit, and she didn’t know what was happening. I was NOT giving them my baby, that’s what was happening. My husband arrives. An officer walks in with a CPS official to issue me an affidavit from the district attorney that the pediatrician was going to press criminal charges should harm come to my newborn. I asked the officer “Who would be responsible if harm came to him from the vaccine?” He said he “assume[d] whoever made the vaccine.” I laughed at that one and told him the doctor is free of liability, and so is the maker of the vaccine. The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act frees the manufacturer AND doctor from all liability should a child be harmed. Instead, they put into place a vaccine court for compensation. If your claim is approved, you sue the government. Your case is managed by government-appointed lawyers and heard by government judges. Awkward. Don’t take my word for it. Google it.

Anyhow, the officer handed me this paper that I promptly read and placed on the table. I told them they were giving us no options. He said “Nobody is going to force you to do anything today. I just have to issue this to you.” They left. I likely wasted his time, oops. I don’t think they realized the gravity of the situation. Nobody does. I went to the state CPS website to see how they got involved and noted that it is considered “medical neglect” to withhold vaccines in our state. WHAT. I was shocked.

The next morning a new nurse comes in and asks what has been going on and hears me out. She voiced her acknowledgment and seemed to agree with me. She returns later to ask if my other children were seen anywhere in the community. I asked her why it was important, and she said, “I’m not completely sure, but it sounds like the pediatrician is digging into your other kids’ files and trying to prove medical neglect.” I was floored.

When did parental duties to raise children and care for their general health fall upon doctors? When did the work of parents need to be approved by doctors at routine “well child” visits? Have parents lost all ability to raise healthy children without help from the medical industry?

I have always felt that routine appointments, with no concerns, were a waste of time and resources. Doctors should be spending their time caring for at-risk and at-need children. They should additionally promote wellness in populations that are not the picture of health. I do not want to monopolize the time of a physician to show them a healthy child. First of all, my kids don’t need to go to a location of sick children so they can pick up mutated viruses and resistant bacteria. They do enough of that at playgrounds and grocery stores. Secondly, it is a literal waste of time, and I always leave feeling like I gained nothing. Third, healthcare is not mandatory. It is available for your use, should you need the services. Yes, first-time parents should use their resources and visit the doctor with their concerns and alleviate worry about their child’s development for their age. If you have concerns, see a doctor! Totally appropriate. Seeing a doctor with no complaints? Odd. But, maybe that’s me…

Part two to follow in the next few days.

Shalom, light, and love.
