Witnessing the Vaccine Injury Epidemic

Analysis by Barbara Loe Fisher Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • On November 14, 1986, President Reagan reluctantly signed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act into law over the objections of drug company executives and federal agency officials; For the first time, the U.S. government admitted that vaccines can cause severe reactions: reactions like brain inflammation, permanent brain damage, paralysis and death
  • By the end of 1987, Congress had quietly amended the law and handed doctors a liability shield from vaccine injury lawsuits. In the early 1990s, Congress added more amendments to weaken vaccine safety provisions
  • The final betrayal came in 2011, when the U.S. Supreme Court granted the request by Big Pharma, medical trade and government and effectively shielded drug companies from all legal accountability for harm vaccines do to children
  • About 35,000 bad health outcomes after vaccination, including injuries and deaths, are reported to the government every year. That number is less than 1% of the total because doctors are not penalized for failing to report
  • Today, children and young adults part of the highest vaccinated population in American history are sicker than ever, crippled by chronic disease and disability marked by chronic inflammation in the brain and body

Those tiny miracles. God's most precious gift to us. We hold them in wonder just moments after they are born. We love them in a way we never thought we could love anyone and they love and trust us in a way that no one else ever will. Then one day, we wake up, and they're as big as we are, ready to go out in the world and make their own way, and hold their own babies in their arms, completing the natural order of life.

But for many children, the natural order of life will never be completed. Some have already died. Some will one day join the ranks of the working disabled. And others will grow old and die in state homes with the bodies of adults and the brains of babies. For these children, the natural order of life has been forever changed by manmade viral and bacterial vaccines they were required by law to use.

We are here today to witness the suffering of children, who have no voice and have no choice except the voice and choice that we, their mothers and fathers, give to them.

We stand here united in our commitment to challenge unscientific vaccine policies1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14 and oppose inhumane public health laws that violate civil and human rights.15,16,17,18

Many of us, who made the pilgrimage to be here, know the pain of watching a healthy child die or regress after vaccination and become chronically ill or disabled.19,20,21,22

We know the pain of being marginalized and discriminated against by doctors23,24,25,26,27,28,29 and government officials for standing up, speaking out and refusing to sacrifice our children in the name of the greater good.30,31,32,33,34

We are here because we love and want to protect our children. And there is no power on earth greater than that love.

As mothers and now grandmothers, in 1982 Kathi Williams and I joined with other parents of DPT vaccine injured children and launched the vaccine safety and informed consent movement in America.35 Through the non-profit National Vaccine Information Center, our mission since then has been to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and defend the ethical principle of informed consent to medical risk taking.36,37

Kathi and I remember this day 33 years ago. We had spent four long years waging an epic David and Goliath battle on Capitol Hill against a rich and powerful pharmaceutical industry blackmailing Congress by threatening to stop producing childhood vaccines when, on November 14, 1986, President Reagan reluctantly signed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act38 into law over the objections of drug company executives and federal agency officials.

To the bitter end, the government and drug companies wanted that Act to eliminate all vaccine injury lawsuits.39,40,41,42,43

Instead, with no personal computers, no cell phones and no Internet, a small group of parents of DPT vaccine injured children managed to protect the legal right of parents to file a medical malpractice vaccine injury lawsuit against negligent doctors and to sue drug companies when there is evidence a vaccine could have been made less harmful.

For parents who did not have the money to sue, the 1986 Act created what was supposed to be a less expensive and time-consuming administrative compensation program alternative to filing a lawsuit.

For the first time, the U.S. government admitted that - just like any other pharmaceutical product - vaccines can cause severe reactions: reactions like brain inflammation, permanent brain damage, paralysis and death.

For the first time, preventing vaccine injuries and deaths was elevated to a national priority in a federal law.

Now doctors would be required to give parents vaccine and disease risk information before vaccinating children; and to record vaccine reactions in medical records and report them to a public Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. And the government would have to fund vaccine science research and make vaccines less harmful.

So, in many ways, November 14, 1986 was an historic day. But we had been fighting for so long to protect the Act from industry greed and government overreach, that we never saw the betrayal coming. On November 14,1986, we did not know that the very same lawmakers sponsoring the Act were already working behind the scenes to dismantle it.

By the end of 1987, without our knowledge, Congress quietly amended the law and handed doctors a liability shield from vaccine injury lawsuits.44

Then, in the early 1990s, Congress added more amendments to weaken the vaccine safety provisions,45 and allowed the Departments of Health and Justice to systematically gut the federal compensation program with rule making so fewer vaccine injured children would be compensated.46,47 And, all along, the vaccine safety studies parents were promised were never done.48,49

The final betrayal came in 2011, when the U.S. Supreme Court did what Congress refused to do in 1986. Ignoring the law's legislative history,50,51 the court majority granted the request by Big Pharma,52 medical trade53 and government54 and effectively shielded drug companies from all legal accountability for harm vaccines do to children.55

Today, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act looks nothing like the one signed into law in November 1986.56,57,58,59,60,61,62 Still, it is the only U.S. law confirming that government licensed and state mandated vaccines can and do injure and kill people.

So what else has happened since November 14, 1986? Four billion dollars in compensation has been awarded to over 6,000 Americans - but two out three vaccine victims are turned away.63

Today, most of the awards go to adults injured by flu shots,64,65,66 while thousands of families whose children have died or suffered catastrophic vaccine injuries are left with nothing but medical bills and shattered lives.67 Clearly, public health officials do not want to concede that the risks of vaccination for children are far greater than 1 in a million.68

About 35,000 bad health outcomes after vaccination, including injuries and deaths, are reported to the government every year.69 That number is less than one percent of the total70 because doctors are not penalized for failing to report.

Since 1986, nine more vaccines have been licensed and mandated for children71,72 and there are twice as many drug companies making and selling them.73

Vaccination forces atypical inflammatory responses in the body to produce artificial immunity74,75 and, today, infants and children are subjected to that process three times as often. The numbers of childhood vaccines have tripled from 23 doses of seven vaccines76 at a cost of $80 per child in 1986,77 to 69 doses of 16 vaccines at a staggering cost of $3,000 per child.78,79

But what has happened to the health of the most highly vaccinated child and young adult populations in our nation's history?

They are sicker than ever. Millions of children and young adults are filling crowded special education classrooms80 and doctors offices in greater and greater numbers.

They are crippled by an unprecedented epidemic of chronic disease and disability marked by chronic inflammation in the brain and body,81,82,83 which is common in most individuals diagnosed with a developmental, mental, behavior, autoimmune or allergic disorder.

  • Today, 1 child in 5 is learning disabled;84,85 in 1976, it was 1 in 17.86
  • Today, 1 child in 6 under age eight,87 1 in 2 adolescents, and 1 in 4 young adults is diagnosed with a mental, behavior or emotional disorder;88
  • There has been an unexplained 55 percent increase in depression and anxiety in children since 2003;89,90,91
  • Today, 1 child in 13 has a food allergy,92 often life threatening, and food allergies have increased 50 percent among children since 1997;93,94,95
  • Today, 1 child in 40 develops autism;96 it was 1 in 2,500 in 1991;97,98
  • Today, 1 child in 166 has active epilepsy with recurring seizures,99 and epilepsy is mysteriously increasing among both children and adults;100,101
  • Today, 1 child in 400 has type 1 or type 2 diabetes,102 which increased 20 to 40 percent in one decade,103,104 and has increased 382 percent among Americans of all ages since 1988.105,106

Millions of children and adults are suffering with other types of inflammatory brain and immune system disorders like rheumatoid arthritis,107 lupus, thyroid disease, guillain barre syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and inflammatory bowel disease.108

On top of that, America has the worst infant mortality,109 maternal mortality110 and life expectancy rate111 of all developed nations. This is a failing public health report card of historic proportions. Today, everybody knows somebody who was healthy, got vaccinated and was never healthy again.

Just like the 1982 TV documentary DPT: Vaccine Roulette112 and the 1985 book DPT: A Shot in the Dark113 were wake-up calls for America 37 years ago, in 2019,Vaxxed: The People's Truth movie114 and this Vaccine Injury Epidemic event115 are the latest in a long series of warnings that the health of our nation is being destroyed one child at a time.

The biggest public health emergency in America today is not 1200 cases of measles.116,117 It is the one being covered up by government agencies working overtime with industry, medical trade and mainstream media to distract, deceive, stonewall and restrict the freedom of Americans to take back control of their health.118,119,120

There are states in this country today, where children cannot go to daycare or get a school education without five dozen doses of vaccines.121 Pediatricians are refusing to provide medical care to children who are not strictly vaccinated according to the government schedule, even when there is a past history of serious vaccine reactions and injury.122

That is because 99 percent of Americans, including most immune-compromised persons, do not qualify for a medical exemption under narrow federal guidelines.123

Lucrative public-private business partnerships between federal agencies and pharmaceutical corporations124 are making it easy for experimental vaccines to be fast tracked to licensure,125 like ones for HIV/AIDS and herpes, influenza and TB, that will be forced on adults, as well as children.126,127,128

The vaccine status of all Americans is being closely monitored by the government in electronic health records tracking systems129,130,131 to make sure everyone is vaccinated from cradle to the grave with or without consent.

Science is not perfect, doctors are not infallible, and vaccines carry unpredictable risks that are greater for some people.132,133,134

If we do not get up off our knees and stop worshipping scientists and doctors who have too little knowledge and have been given too much power, tomorrow we will not be able to get on a bus, train or plane; enter a store or sports arena; obtain a driver's license or passport, file our taxes or function in society without getting every vaccine that industry creates and the government orders us to get.

And the ones who know deep in the core of their being that children are in danger, are the mothers, who carry babies inside them for nine months and give birth and are endowed with a primal instinct God gave women so they have the courage to protect their babies from harm until they are able to survive on their own.

That biological imperative is hard wired into our DNA. It is what protects the survival of every species on this earth. And yet, mothers, who know their children best, are being bullied, ridiculed and punished if we use our intellect and listen our gut instincts and refuse to violate our conscience when caring for our children.135

The right to autonomy and protection of bodily integrity is the first human right.136 If you cannot voluntarily decide when and for what reason you are willing to risk your life or the life of your child, your unalienable right to life and liberty has been taken from you.

The right of the state to tell us what to do to our bodies or the bodies of our children ends where our right to protect our lives and our children's lives begins.

It is time to reject the cruel pseudo-ethic of utilitarianism propping up mandatory vaccination laws that justify child sacrifice by reducing what is moral to a mathematical equation.137,138

When the State considers one of us to be expendable, then we are all considered expendable.

And if the State can tag, track down and force individuals to be injected with biologicals of known and unknown toxicity today, then there will be no limit on which individual freedoms the state can take away in the name of the greater good tomorrow.

We can throw off the chemical chains making us sick if we act to instill truth, transparency, integrity and compassion in government. We must elect lawmakers who believe in and will act to protect freedom of thought, speech, and conscience and reform public health laws.139

There is no greater calling for Americans in the 21st century than to defend those civil and human rights that protect against tyranny.140,141

We will not be silent.

We will not go away.

We will never give up.

We are the daughters and sons of liberty, and our mission continues:

No forced vaccination. Not in America.
