Open Letter to Doctors Who Reject Unvaccinated Patients

by Sarah VaccinationComments: 133

doctors refuse unvaccinated patients

I was kicked out of my first pediatrician office in 1998. The Pediatrician in question was an old family friend, a neighbor of my high school sweetheart whose family I knew very well.

He was also a colleague of my Dad, a Geriatrician and Family Doctor at the same hospital in Dunedin, Florida.

This well-respected Pediatrician was very welcoming at first when I arrived for my initial office visit with our newborn son. Thankfully, my Mother-in-Law who is a nurse was with me. The alarm bells began going off in my head shortly after the examination started when I told him that my healthy, beautiful baby had been born at a birth center.

You could immediately see in his eyes the mental shutdown process begin as he proceeded to chastise me for my birthing decision and how women foolishly risk their own lives as well as the lives of their babies by forgoing a hospital birth.

When the time came for vaccination, though, that’s when things got ugly.

I had thought that because this Pediatrician was a friend of the family and was a very gentle, hands on type of doctor, that he would understand and respect our family’s wishes to delay vaccination due to concerns about toxicity and overall safety.

I was wrong.

While he seemed to grudgingly accept that I was going to delay standard childhood immunizations for the time being, he proceeded to push hard for me to vaccinate my son for rotovirus.

He explained that this particular vaccine was not a live vaccine and was “perfectly safe”.  He also said it was very important that I vaccinate for rotovirus as it was an extremely contagious and dangerous intestinal illness for babies that caused dozens of deaths each year.

Was I scared by these words as a new Mom?

Yes, I most certainly was!

I remember the moment so well as I was struggling mentally with what to do at that moment. It was as if time stood still, and I felt that this moment and what I decided to do would somehow change my life forever, strange as that may sound.

In a split second, the answer came to me. I told him that I really needed to discuss the issue with my husband first as we had promised each other that we would jointly decide all medical decisions for our family.

My Mother-in-Law voiced her support for my decision.

I heaved a sigh of relief as I left the office.  I had bought us some time.

Time to think. Time to research.

When I got home, I researched the rotovirus vaccine as best I could with what little was available online and was horrified at what I discovered.  The list of ingredients was something that I would never consider, for any reason, for injection into my baby’s vulnerable little body! There was no way this lethal mixture could have benefits that outweighed the risks to his health, both in the short and long term.

I called the Pediatrician’s office and relayed my decision. I was promptly told that the doctor would no longer have me as a patient.

Shocked and hurt, I cried at the callous betrayal by an old family friend.

What to do now, I thought?

Was I going to be able to find a doctor who would respect our wishes to delay vaccination?

A few months later, I learned that the rotovirus vaccine this Pediatrican had pushed on me and promised was safe had been withdrawn from the market as it carried the significant and life threatening risk of twisting of the bowel which had already caused the hospitalization and emergency surgery for a number of babies. By the way, the new rotovirus vaccine that replaced it, RotaTeq, is even worse. It is a genetically engineered vaccine made of live, attenuated human-bovine hybridized reassortant rotaviruses.

It was at that point that I realized that assurances of vaccine safety by those in authority are hollow and meaningless. Our decision to delay vaccination turned into a decision to opt out of all vaccines.

As it turned out, I had no trouble finding another doctor who gladly accepted us as patients and has proven to be a wonderful sounding board and healer for our family for many years.

Other families I know who have been kicked out of a Pediatrician’s office because they don’t vaccinate have reported the same – no trouble at all finding a caring, open minded doctor who is happy to accept them in a nonprejudicial manner. In fact, there are many medical doctors today who not only respect a patient’s civil right not to vaccinate, but also don’t believe in vaccination themselves!

So, does it really matter that many conventional doctors choose to bully and pressure their patients to vaccinate or else?

No, it does not, although it makes for great mainstream media headlines hell bent on scaring parents into thinking that the choice not to vaccinate will lead to ostracization from society.

Guess what?  It doesn’t. At least for now, thankfully this is a free country and forced drugging of the population with toxic chemicals touted as “beneficial to health” is not an acceptable form of governance.

Who needs a doctor who doesn’t respect my authority and right as a parent to make medical decisions for my child? Who needs a doctor who so cavalierly violates the Hippocratic Oath taken by physicians for centuries?

I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:

I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.

I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.

I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.

I will not be ashamed to say “I know not,” nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient’s recovery.

I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.

I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person’s family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.

—Written in 1964 by Louis Lasagna, Academic Dean of the School of Medicine at Tufts University, and still used in many medical schools today.

Who needs a doctor who violates the Constitution by discriminating against pro-life families who don’t vaccinate for religious reasons because numerous childhood (and adult) vaccines use electively aborted human fetal cell lines?

Don’t believe it Doc?  Click here for a list of vaccines that use abortion as the manufacturing method of choice.

Oh, and it wasn’t “just one abortion a long time ago” not that this would make any difference anyway. According to the Catholic website cogforlife:

While it is true that the each of the cell lines used in final production came from only one aborted child as described above, there were numerous abortions and fetal tissue samples used before the final cell line was perfected.  For example, in the case of the rubella vaccine there were at least 62 recorded, elective abortions involved in the research before the final version was developed.

So, good riddance to you and good luck living with yourself.  You’re no physician. You’re a mercenary with a medical degree. I look forward to the day when a class action lawsuit is filed against one or more large doctor groups like Pediatric Healthcare Alliance in my community which practice this type of medical tyranny, lack of humanity, and religious intolerance toward unvaccinated patients.

The only reason these doctor groups haven’t been sued already is because it is so easy to find another doctor who accepts unvaccinated patients and also because when a parent chooses not to vaccinate, there is so little sickness which requires a doctor’s care anyway!  Could vaccination be one way of ensuring repeat and residual business?

    You are lucky. When my pediatrician told me my daughter wasn’t welcome at the practice anymore, it took 112 calls to doctors before I found ONE in the entire San Antonio/Austin area that will accept a patient that isn’t fully immunized – even if there is a valid medical reason…

    Also – I don’t know how much you have read about it, but babies born to mothers with auto immune diseases aren’t supposed to receive all vaccinations either…

    I 100% support your opinion and truly am disgusted that doctors have stepped in to try and enforce their politics on parents and their children by denying them care I really do. But the rumor that fetal tissue is in vaccines is completely UNTRUE. Please check your resources from SCHOLARLY resources that have been backed up by OTHER scholars before making wild claims.There is NO SCIENTIFIC reason for human tissue of ANY KIND aborted or otherwise to be in a vaccine in fact it would kill most people and children. This is why it’s so hard to find tissue and organ donors because you can’t just to shooting up random bodily fluids or yes even tissues put into your body you’d go into toxic shock syndrome!

    If this is the only reason you’re not vaccinating it’s safe to reconsider because it’s political none sense! However if you’re declining for other factual reasons or because of allergies or safety issues I continue to support you!

      You can choose not to go … I know many parents who don’t bother to go to well baby visits at the Ped anyway as they are just a cover for vaccinating anyway. I only go to the doctor if my child is actually ill or needs a physical .. and choose a family doctor or holistic practitioner of some kind as they are far more reasonable about parental choice.

        With all do respect… I’ve seen multiple posts that are in regards to not going to the well baby check-ups. The posts of these opinions seem to just be statements and not directed to anyone in particular; however this mom shouldn’t be given a false sense of security for what these check-ups are for. You stated a ‘cover for vaccinating anyway’.

        I beg to differ and I’m very much against vaccinations. I’m quite petite and my baby was born with torticollis, which was not diagnosed until her 2 month check-up. Our pediatrician, who we ultimately left due to vaccinations, was amazing in other areas and the specialist for the torticollis was amazed she saw it so early on. I think there is a place for well baby check-ups and they don’t need to be thrown out the window and broad statements made like the ‘vaccination cover-ups’. I don’t work for any medical industry- I’m an Art Curator, so I have no hidden agenda to advocate for the well baby visits. I think we need to be careful about dismissing everything for newborns/young babies in general, such as well baby visits.

        To say what the above poster (Jessica Butts) is going through is unfortunate would be an understatement; however I would never feel comfortable telling a mom with an infant to not go to any of the well baby visits, unless her baby is sick. She might not see something with the baby that a professional may take notice. We would’ve had to do major physical therapy if we never went in until it was apparent to the untrained eye.

          I have 3 children and stopped going to “well” baby visits when my first was 1 month old .. that was almost 17 years ago. Well baby visits are by and large a waste of time and just a moneymaker for pediatricians (who should wear a “I work for Big Pharma” cap on their heads at all times). I only go to our holistic practitioner now and only when they are sick or need a physical for school or sports .. just like mothers did when I was a kid (and children were a whole lot healthier then too).

      I know it’s been a few months, but did you find anyone? My parents live in Pennsylvania. I am also part of several fb groups that may be able to find a doctor or holistic doctor for you.

      I know sometimes seeing a doctor sometimes is necessary…I would suggest being open to a family doctor AND to driving a bit…if you don’t have to go as often hopefully the drive would not be prohibitive. :)

    This was my response to Jennifer Hibben-White…
    I feel your pain over losing your daughter to a blood infection years ago. And I am sorry that you have to wait, even if your child is symptomless while you rant. Please don’t discount the pain that I felt when my 1-year-old son developed a fever of 107, went in convulsions and seizures and almost died… from the MMR vaccine. He has suffered 22-years of learning disabilities since. He was normal until he got the vaccine… his life changed in one day. Please also do not discount the pain of the 86 US mothers whose children died from the MMR vaccine since 2005, 68 of them under 3 years old. Not one person has died from the measles in the US since then (or long before then either). A good article, written by a doctor, that you should read can be found at…/how-vaccine-hysteria-could-spark-tot…/…. Another one has data from the government database for the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System… 329 people have died from the MMR vaccine……. Or, you can find all the horrifying data you want about all adverse events for all vaccines by perusing the web site. But that is the tip of the iceberg. My son’s case isn’t represented in the database even though all doctors agree it was the MMR vaccine, they didn’t want to report it. The question is not should we vaccinate… the question is why the HELL can’t we have safer vaccines? Oh. because the vaccine debate is so polarized that everybody yells at each other, claiming sanctimoniously that their motherly concerns are more important than other’s motherly concerns and so nobody holds the pharmaceutical companies accountable or pressures them to higher standards. I am not your enemy… the pharmaceutical companies who profit from the same laziness that almost killed my son are both of our enemies. Place your withering glare on them.

    Someone please help!

    I need a pediatrician who accepts unvaccinated children in Maryland. My son has a rare genetic mutation on the COL1A2 gene. Two weeks after receiving the hepatitis B vaccine, he presented with a fractured femur with no trauma nor bruising. No one wants to believe that a combination of his genetics and the ingredients in the vaccine may have worked together to cause the fracture. The FDA states that aluminum can cause bone issues!

    I DO NOT want to vaccinate my son. I believe he is one of the rare people who would have serious adverse reactions from it.

    Please let me know if you know of a doctor. Dr. Beams is out, she no longer accepts unvaccinated children.

      The reason people get abusive about this topic is because your questioning of it makes them terribly uncomfortable because deep down, they are questioning it themselves but are repressing the urge to investigate with an open mind … hence the lashing out.

    I can see why the doctor would say that. Say you decided not to vax your child against anything, measles, flu, etc. As soon as your kid comes down with that, and you walk into the doctors office with a contagious kid, you are putting every single person who walks into that office at risk. Who knows, maybe the doctor treats children who are immuno-deficient, like children with cancer, or that have had any sort of transplant that can’t receive these vaccinations.Its like bringing peanut butter in a room of people with a severe peanut allergy, you run the risk of hurting all of those people.(Of course no one would do this, but this is just an example)

    Someone whom is very close to our family recently had a new baby and after much research, decided not to vaccinate. As a result, they couldn’t get even 1 pediatrician in their town (of about 115,000 people) to see their son. After their obvious shock, they began to call pediatricians in a metropolitan area that is about 2 hours from their home. Guess what? They only found 2 doctors who would agree to see their baby for a well check! They called well over 100 doctors, and that was the result.
    This is SO wrong for so many reasons!

I don’t have kids, but when I do I will absolutely be vaccinating. As a responsible global citizen, and someone who works in pubic health, I believe it is our duty to protect the community from preventable disease.

      In my experience, natural health communities are more than willing to accept others and have no issues with them making informed decisions for their families. That is all any of us ask, the right to make the best decisions for our families. However, if you come in with an “attitude”, declaring yourself “a responsible global citizen” and thus implying others of us are in some way irresponsible? I would suggest that you might be happier in some other community more like-minded with your beliefs:-) As my husband always says, its all in your attitude!

    Here is the truth about the use of aborted fetuses in making vaccines.

    Note the quote from the National Catholic’s Bioethics Center (NCBC) in the section titled Ethical Issues with Human Cell Cultures. The aborted fetus which was used to originate the vaccine (many years ago) was referred to as a victim, which it was. All aborted children are victims. That said, read the article.

    So, what do you do when relatives don’t agree with you on not vaccinating? The scenario is that we’ve not given an open invitation to discuss vaccinations and not included them in on the medical decision for our child. My sister-in-law (found out from my husband) had told my husband’s parents that we were delaying them. My husband’s parents mentioned briefly that “She’s our grandchild, too you know.” VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. I don’t know what to say to that and now my husband and I have decided to ultimately not vaccinate her at all, which no one in the family knows about. I know there will be a questioning of vaccines in the future. Anybody have a good response to use that won’t ruin relationships and won’t involve lying? I just don’t feel like I should have to hide or lie about something that seems like a no brainer.

      Hubs told his mother that it’s basically our way or the highway, as far as her seeing her (only) grandkids goes. (At the time, we had reason to worry that she would go behind our backs, which is no longer really possible) My dad wanted more info, so I pointed him to some, and recommended he read The Vaccine Epidemic. He hadn’t raised the issue again, and that was a few years ago.

I couldn’t believe the media only report a news like this yet didn’t talk about the side effects of these vaccines. I had few bad experiences with doctors like this too. One of them was so mad that I didn’t let my only two months old son get 3 shots on that day. I asked her if she could tell me the ingredients of each shot and she couldn’t. She didn’t know the ingredients of the shots yet she told me those shots were all safe. How could I blindly trust a doctor like that?

    My son is now 30 yrs old and I was 40 yrs old when he was born. While I did eventually get him the shots recommended at the time, I prayed over them. I had witnessed a 3yr-old daughter of a physician I worked for at Kaiser have such a reaction that it caused permanent brain damage. My pediatrician claimed “well, that is perhaps 1%,” which was supposed to calm me. I never felt calm but like many remarks here fell victim to the threats. He is ok (but not eating healthy :( ). My 93-yr-old mom & I take glyco nutrients and do our best to eat healthy. I swear pharms are trying to kill us. She recently suffered from a urinary tract infection and the side effects were scary reading. I bumped up her nutrition intake and prayed over the side effects. God gave us the food to heal our bodies but He also gave us science and doctors and I am grateful for them all. Just cautious.

      It is true that a vaccine can cause a severe reaction and, yes, those reactions are rare. An allergic reaction can occur after administration of a variety of different medicines., including antibiotics. Does that mean that antibiotics should not be used? There are risks involved in almost everything you do in life. You are faced with weighing the risks versus the benefits. All we can do is have faith that our child will not fall within that 1%. Otherwise, we will spend our lives in fear of everything and anything that may go wrong. Is living in fear something we want to teach our children?

        This deference is – you take antibiotics when you are already sick & NEED them.
        Giving vaccines full of toxic chemicals because your child MAY or MAY NOT ever encounter a certain disease (or even more uncertain, your child MIGHT get a disease & then MIGHT spread that disease to someone else) is no different than a woman cutting off her breasts because she MIGHT get breast cancer. Should we also start cutting off all female’s breasts?
        THIS is weighing the “benefits” vs risk!!
        How about this risk?
        You vaccinate your kid, then your kid sheds & somone else contracts the very thing your child was vaccinated (supposedly to protect others & themself)?

    My son got deathly ill from a vaccine but not sure still to this day which one, the doctors in the ER tried to reassure me it wasn’t a vaccination issue and that all kids should be vaccinated, while also telling me they cant find out why he is constantly screaming in pain, has no appetite, and has a constant fever of 104 for the 4 days were we admitted. He had gotten his shots 2 weeks prior I believe, it’s been a little while. Some instinct inside me, I’m not sure why, has me believing it was one of the 6 shots he got during that one visit… I’ve never been one to question my instincts. But I’m not about to test with my sons already weak immune system again. The measles outbreak scares me though.. I’m extremely conflicted. :(

      You don’t need to be afraid of measles. When I was little in the 60s we all got it and you didn’t even need to see a doctor. My mom was a nurse so if measles was dangerous she would have known and acted accordingly. Don’t listen to the fear mongering because that is all it is.

        I agree about the Measles panic. Not denying some cases turn bad but what I noticed when I was in California last November to March this year (2015) was the panic in the media, with never a word about what to do if your child developes measles. I looked and listened in vain for a word of advice.
        the kind of advice we had in the UK back in the 60’s & 70’s prior to vaccinations for measles.

        ie: keep the child cool in a darkened room, use a flannel with cool water, to wipe them down, keep them hydrated.

        My 4 children had measles, mumps, chicken pox and one had a rash for a day only considered to be German measles.
        Eldest now over 50.

        Two of my grandchildren had separate vaccination for measles privately and avoided the mmr, they had the baby 3 vacs. I don’t think they allow children to attend playgroups or nursery unless they have the first vaccinations.

        It was due to pharmaceutical drugs I lost my daughter.

      That’s because it wasn’t a side effect from the vaccine. Your kid got sick, like all kids get sick. If your kid got new shoes and two weeks later got sick, would you blame the shoes? Would that even cross your mind?

      So let me get this straight Dominique. Your kid got shots TWO WEEKS prior to getting sick…maybe, you’re not entirely sure on the timeline. You’re also not sure which vaccines he got. Doctors told you it wasn’t vaccines, BUT you’re positive it was a vaccine that caused it?!?!? Seriously? Are you for real?

        Considering that some vaccines are documented to have cancer viruses in them, but the cancers might not show up for decades, and considering that it might take a small body months or longer to process out the heavy metals and other chemicals in 6 vaccines, a delayed reaction is not at all unlikely. So, yeah, she’s for real.

    Just had a conversation with a holistic therapist today from the UK. She said years ago when her daughter was young and taken to playgroups, the recommendation was for the mothers to be careful of diapers and used wipes because the newly vaccinated infants would be shedding viruses.

      I have a rule of thumb as the old saying goes when it comes to medications, vaccines, etc. If something has not been on the market for years then I will not allow my family to use it. I have great respect for the medical community and doctors like Jonas Salk who fought so hard to eradicate disease. But in todays world it is not these doctors who are now controlling how medicine or vaccinations are being made. Big Pharmaceutical Companies are and they truly are evil. all big pharms care about is money and costs. They have known for years that children and teens should not have antidepressants because they make teens violent. 100% of ALL school shootings, the Colorado movie theater, Newtown ,Ct shooting, etc.were all taking psychotropics. when the tv commercials say that the side effects to a med are cheating, gambling, suicide and homicidal thoughts the medicatio should be taken off the market. But big business now owns congress and no one cares that 1000’s of innocent people have become murderers because of these meds. Doctors do not defend us, they continue to write the prescriptions, they are even writting orders for 4 and 5 year olds to be medicated with these horrible meds. So when it comes to vaccines trust your instinct. Children need to be safe from disease but they also need to be safe from the monster pharms and doctors who no longer put safety above the bottom line

    I’m so happy there are people like you in the world!

    I was pregnant with my third and determined not to vaccinate her. I was fed up with the pediatrician I used for my first two children. She was set in her ways and yelled at me for believing the internet over her. I thought I could find someone better.

    I interviewed a new pediatrician who seemed nice and agreed to work with me because of my vaccine concerns. I would go into each appointment telling myself I would not give in to any of the scare tactics, but standing there in front of him I would become paralyzed with fear and just give in! I hated myself for it! He was pushier than my previous pediatrician. He was Indian and told me how he worked on 3 continents and about all the children that died from these preventable diseases. He said to be lucky to have access to these vaccines!

    After the third visit, I called the office and said I will no longer be coming in for shots. Well, I was informed I was no longer welcome to the practice and to find a new doctor! I did learn from the nurse that he apparently used to be flexible, allowing people who didn’t vaccinate, but got seriously fined by the insurance companies.

    Getting dropped was the best thing that could happen. I was having trouble being confident in trusting myself, and this forced me to. I found an AWESOME alternative medical doctor who has given me so much strength and knowledge and is fantastic with my children. I drive an hour to see her and it’s worth it. She doesn’t accept insurance, so I pay up front, but she submits my claims for me. I ended up switching to a PPO insurance, so that helps. Since she is not tied to insurance, she doesn’t have to worry about keeping the insurance people happy. She can actually do things that are in your best interest.

    I’m grateful for all the knowledge and truth you share. You are the best! :)

    Wait, so its okay for you to believe that vaccines are bad and harmful but when your physician has a professional opinion and simply refuses to see you he has to be sued?! If he believes that unvaccinated children are a harm to his other patients, he is fulfilling his professional obligation to them.

    How is it possible for a doctor to “violate the constitution.” The constitution is a document regulating the relationship between the government and its citizens, He isn’t a public servant, he’s a private citizen. He’s not obligated to have your child as a patient. If you were to have a heart attack right in front of him, he wouldn’t be obligated to intervene.

      The same professional ethics problems as if a fertility doctor dropped a couple as patients because they refused to do in vitro for religious reasons (many faiths are against in vitro fertilization including Catholics and many conservative Christian churches). The ethical doctor would find another treatment plan for that couple just as an ethical pediatrician would still consent to treat a family that doesn’t vax because they are pro-life.

        It isn’t the same thing at all. If his unvaccinated patient comes down with measles, whooping cough, polio etc. and comes into his office while there are babies present who can’t yet be vaccinated, he has now put their lives in danger. No innocent third party is put in any danger by someone refusing to do in vitro.

        Actually Whoa Nelly, a healthcare professional is ONLY required to treat an established patient. For instance, if an individual has a heart attack in the community and a doctor (who does not know that person) does not help, they will NOT lose their license. Although most health care professional would, this is not a legal obligation if that person is not a known patient.

    I would have given my daughter every shot without questioning it had it not been for one fateful day with a massage therapist. I went in for a thrid trimester prenatal massage when the therapist, who is also a family friend, asked me about vaccines and what I had to decided for our unborn daughter. I told her I hadn’t gave it much thought. She casually mentioned that her daughter, who was an RN, started researching vaccines and was astounded at what she discovered. The therapist left it at that and I did my own research once I got home and I was floored. I decided right then I wouldn’t vaccinate or it would at least be very delayed. I was scared to death when I had to tell my pediatrician and she assured me it was perfectly fine with a kind smile. I breathed a sigh of relief until an angry looking nurse came in and basically threw info at me on the particular vaccines I was refusing. Of course it was full of fear inducing bull crap. It rattled me and I questioned my decision and did more research. The second time she did it I smiled and accepted the papers and stuffed them in my diaper bag. The third time I was ready, she put the papers in my face and I replied, “No thank you. Unlike most your patients I have educated myself on vaccinations, did you know this particular vaccination (fill in the blank with a lot of info on why this vaccine is a lie). She just scowled at me and spouted out something rude that I don’t recall and as she went to turn away I called to her and said, “Wait, I have something for you. Do you understand the risk of smoking?”. I smiled pleasantly at her as I handed her some papers on the risk of smoking. The look on her face was priceless. This woman smelled like an ashtray and her face and teeth told the story of her long years of smoking. Needless to say after that I always got a different nurse and it seemed my doctor liked us even more after that as she would spend more time with me just talking. Sadly she moved to another state a year later :(.

    Sarah, excellent post !
    Notice how the media frames this argument: whether vaccines are safe and efficacious – and they would have us arguing endlessly about that obscuring the real issue: do we have the right to decide what is put into our bodies – do we have sovereignty over our own bodies (anymore !)? Force those experts to answer that simple question. The Media can argue about safety ad nauseam – but I have already made up my mind.

    We would be well served not to piggy-back on the Media’s narrative but zero in on the correct issue.

    Sarah, I applaud you for standing your ground and sharing both your viewpoints, your research, and your experience. It can be so lonely and scary feeling like you are alone in your choice to not vaccinate, but when I visit your blog I feel such a sense of community from like-minded people. It helps my husband and I feel stronger in our decision to avoid vaccination, and pediatricians in general, based on our own research.

    We too are choosing not to vaccinate our children, and I have never once regretted that decision. We have one of the healthiest little boys I know, while his vaccinated playmates at his babysitter are constantly sick with colds, flu, bowel and digestive issues, you name it! Despite being exposed to all of these germs and sickness, our little guy (now 2 years old) has only had 1 cold each fall that went away on it’s own after a week or so of general symptoms. We have another baby on the way and plan to protect this one from vaccinations as well!

    At the very least, I am holding out for the day when the pro-vaccination camp can at least RESPECT other’s opinions. Their general lack of respect and reason shows just how shaky ground they are on. Those that are not confident in their decision will always push others to follow.

          Thanks for the idea. We live in a good sized city but have had a very difficult time finding a doctor who respects the decision to choose regarding vaccination and whom is covered by our insurance. Our latest doctor, who we went to for 3 years, is part of a practice that just decided to boot out patients who weren’t keeping up with the vaccine schedule. They were concerned that parents who vaccinate and parents of young babies wouldn’t want to share a waiting room, and they were concerned about the possible liability this would bring.

    We vaccinate our kids, but we spread the shots out over many visits so that we never have to do more than 1-2 at a time. We are so lucky to have a supportive family doctor who never bullies us into doing more than we are comfortable with. I once asked him point-blank if he would kick us out of his practice for not vaccinating “on time”, and he said he didn’t understand how that would serve anyone. This is about our right as parents to choose when and whether to inject things into our children. If we don’t have that right, what do we have?

    Sarah, thank you for keeping us posted. How about since parents must sign the waiver that you understand no one can be held accountable if your child is injured from vaccination. That waiver also means that you the parent are helping to add to the vaccine i jury compensation program. Why don’t we write up a letter stating our pediatrician can guarantee that vaccines are safe with no side effects now or years to come. One they must sign bet ya that won’t happen.

      Physician’s Warranty of Vaccine Safety
      I (Physician’s name, degree)_________________________, _____ am a physician licensed to practice medicine in the State/Province of ________________, in the country of _________________. My State/Province license number is _______________ , and (if the USA) my DEA number is _______________. My medical specialty is ________________________
      I have a thorough understanding of the risks and benefits of all the medications that I prescribe for or administer to my patients. In the case of (Patient’s name) ___________________________ , age _________ , whom I have examined, I find that certain risk factors exist that justify the recommended vaccinations. The following is a list of said risk factors and the vaccinations that will protect against them:
      Risk Factor ____________________________________________ Vaccination ___________________________________________ Risk Factor ____________________________________________ Vaccination ___________________________________________ Risk Factor ____________________________________________ Vaccination ___________________________________________ Risk Factor ____________________________________________ Vaccination ___________________________________________ Risk Factor ____________________________________________ Vaccination ___________________________________________ Risk Factor ____________________________________________ Vaccination ___________________________________________
      I am aware that vaccines typically contain many of the following fillers:
      * aluminum hydroxide * 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) serum
      * betapropiolactone * fetal bovine serum * formaldehyde
      * formalin
      * gelatin
      * glycerol
      * human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue) * hydrolized gelatin
      * mercury thimerosol (thimerosal, Merthiolate(r))
      * 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
      * tri(n)butylphosphate,
      * VERO cells, a continuous line of monkey kidney cells, and * washed sheep red blood
      and, hereby, warrant that these ingredients are safe for injection into the body of my patient. I have researched reports to the contrary, such as reports that mercury thimerosol causes severe neurological and immunological damage, and find that they are not credible.
      I am aware that some vaccines have been found to have been contaminated with Simian Virus 40 (SV 40) and that SV 40 is causally linked by some researchers to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and mesotheliomas in humans as well as in experimental animals. I hereby warrant that the vaccines I employ in my practice do not contain SV 40 or any other live viruses. (Alternately, I hereby warrant that said SV-40 virus or other viruses pose no substantive risk to my patient.)
      I hereby warrant that the vaccines I am recommending for the care of (Patient’s name) _______________ _______________________ do not contain any tissue from aborted human babies (also known as “fetuses”).
      In order to protect my patient’s well being, I have taken the following steps to guarantee that the vaccines I will use will contain no damaging contaminants.
      STEPS TAKEN: ______________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________
      I have personally investigated the reports made to the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) and state that it is my professional opinion that the vaccines I am recommending are safe for administration to a child under the age of 5 years.
      The bases for my opinion are itemized on Exhibit A, attached hereto, — “Physician’s Bases for Professional Opinion of Vaccine Safety.” (Please itemize each recommended vaccine separately along with the bases for arriving at the conclusion that the vaccine is safe for administration to a child under the age of 5 years.)

      The reasons for my determining that the articles in Exhibit C were invalid are delineated in Attachment D , attached hereto, — “Physician’s Reasons for Determining the Invalidity of Adverse Scientific Opinions.”
      Hepatitis B
      I understand that 60 percent of patients who are vaccinated for Hepatitis B will lose detectable antibodies to Hepatitis B within 12 years. I understand that in 1996 only 54 cases of Hepatitis B were reported to the CDC in the 0-1 year age group. I understand that in the VAERS, there were 1,080 total reports of adverse reactions from Hepatitis B vaccine in 1996 in the 0-1 year age group, with 47 deaths reported.
      I understand that 50 percent of patients who contract Hepatitis B develop no symptoms after exposure. I understand that 30 percent will develop only flu-like symptoms and will have lifetime immunity. I understand that 20 percent will develop the symptoms of the disease, but that 95 percent will fully recover and have lifetime immunity.
      I understand that 5 percent of the patients who are exposed to Hepatitis B will become chronic carriers of the disease. I understand that 75 percent of the chronic carriers will live with an asymptomatic infection and that only 25 percent of the chronic carriers will develop chronic liver disease or liver cancer, 10-30 years after the acute infection. The following scientific studies have been performed to demonstrate the safety of the Hepatitis B vaccine in children under the age of 5 years. _______________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________
      In addition to the recommended vaccinations as protections against the above cited risk factors, I have recommended other non-vaccine measures to protect the health of my patient and have enumerated said non-vaccine measures on Exhibit D , attached hereto, “Non-vaccine Measures to Protect Against Risk Factors” I am issuing this Physician’s Warranty of Vaccine Safety in my professional capacity as the attending physician to (Patient’s name) _________________________.

Anyway, I also agree, Sarah, it is a shame that more people don’t know about the aborted fetal tissue used…although we can’t keep people from doing horrible things, you would think more would not want to use the shots that have extorted those poor babies if they only knew what was actually in them.

          The aborted fetal cell issue is the elephant in the room no one is talking about. Religious leaders from all faiths who are pro-life need to stand up and be counted on this issue and speak out. It really is appalling how it’s fire and brimstone at the pulpit about the sins of abortion and everyone just goes on their merry way and gets their kids vaxed like its perfectly normal and fine allowing these murderous corporations to profit on the whole thing which only encourages them to do it more (which is happening right now as the in development ebola vaccine also uses aborted fetal cell tissue).

I took one year reading Bible with that idea of what is health and healing. used one version of Bible and highlighted all scriptures. Its about faith in God not man. I find it sad when I asked for healing prayer for something and the people prayed that the dr…who i never went to see…would find a cure. I had exama. also that I would find some herb that would help. cause I do natural. they didn’t even pray for healing. people over seas get healing ll the time. missionary friends come back and talk of it yet when home lack faith and just think you turn to med science. even tho they have seen the hand of God work in africa.

    I’m pro-choice, but if using the “abortion card” can get you out of having your child vaccinated, I say go for it. But the real deal is who is the reason behind this push and why the truth isn’t coming out about the lawsuits and MERCK, as you explained in another article. Readers should be sending that article to everyone they can. I’m shocked that the liberal media isn’t onto it. But, when you see the ads in the media, a majority of them are for drugs. And, no one wants to upset such a cash cow. Editorial and advertising are no longer separated. These ads should be band like they are in other countries. We band smoking and hard liquor ads from tv and we should do the same with drugs. This vaccination push is all about money. Sarah, the root of all evil is drugs. Start a campaign to band drug advertising and you may find yourself uniting both the right and the left on this one.

    I’m so annoyed (and depressed and anxious) that this debate has been framed as a denial of “the science.” Vaccines have side-effects. Vaccines have side-effects as potentially serious as the diseases they are supposed to protect against. Statistically, this is irrefutable. It’s also terrifying that so many are so willing to trample on civil rights in the name of the “common good” or “herd immunity” or “shared penance” or whatever.

    It seems to me this not about science. It’s about ethics and how each of us views the world ethically. If your world-view aligns with Utilitarianism, then you have no problem injuring healthy children if you believe it staves off “epidemics.” Look up the famous “Trolley Problem” and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. Unsurprisingly, in the Trolley hypothetical, I am totally uncomfortable diverting the trolley to save five people if it means I have to kill another by intervening.

    One more thing. I looked up some info about TB, just to add perspective to this year’s measles media firestorm. The following is cut and pasted from the CDC website (sorry):

    “Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the world’s deadliest diseases:

    One third of the world’s population is infected with TB.

    In 2013, 9 million people around the world became sick with TB disease. There were around 1.5 million TB-related deaths worldwide.

    TB is a leading killer of people who are HIV infected.

    A total of 9,582 TB cases (a rate of 3.0 cases per 100,000 persons) were reported in the United States in 2013. Both the number of TB cases reported and the case rate decreased; this represents a 3.6% and 4.3% decline, respectively, compared to 2012.”

    Perspective, people. Perspective.

    Sarah, thank you so much for the stories and information that you share. My husband and I decided that we did not want to vaccinate our son by strictly following our gut instincts. Once we started researching vaccines and diseases we knew that we would not be vaccinating him. I’m old enough to know that you never go against your gut feeling!

    Before we were fired from our first pediatrician we quit him. He was very demanding! He knew that I was struggling with breast feeding my son and never checked him for any problems that could be interfering with breast feeding. He agenda was pushing vaccines ! My son just turned two and I discovered that he has a tongue tie! When I saw it a wave of anger, and then closure, rushed over me. I beat myself up for a while because I felt like a failure. Hospital lactation consultants just told me to keep trying. We were on formula by the time we saw our new pediatrician, so it’s something he wouldn’t have looked for.

    We are very lucky to have found an outstanding pediatrician for our son. I knew that I loved him when during one of our first appointments with him he started talking about The healthy home economist and Weston A. Price, among other things. He stated that he talked with you at the Atlanta conference. We are in central Alabama if that helps you. Everyone deserves a doctor like him. I would nominate him for an award if the opportunity arose!

    Keep up the good fight.

    Despite where anyone stands on the vaccine spectrum. It is every doctors right to refuse service to someone that does not follow their rules. That said, I’m very thankful you found a doctor you could talk openly and honest with concerning your family’s healthcare.

      Actually, no. It is not a doctor’s right to refuse service based on religion. It is illegal just like it would be illegal to refuse service to anyone based on their religion. Can a supermarket owner in a big city refuse service to Muslims or Hindus? No. Can a private homeowner refuse to sell or rent their home based on the religion of the applicants? No. I look forward to these doctors being held accountable in court of law at some point in the future. Outrageous and shameful.

          The website I linked you to for the list of vaccines manufactured using aborted fetal cell tissue is a Catholic website. More and more people who are pro-life from many faiths (not just Christian) who are finding out about this are opting out of vaccines for moral reasons, but this needs to be more widely known. It has been very successfully covered up for decades. Time to open Pandora’s box.

            I have been saying to my husband for a few years now how upset and disturbed I am by EVERY church I’ve been too. They praise doctors for healing their family, pray for God to guide the doctors hand, etc. etc. GAH! I’m sick of it. To be praising a HUMAN in the house of GOD is just atrocious! It’s crazy cause I never saw it that way till I began to turn away from doctors and their “medicines”. The vax issue just puts me at odds with everyone at every church I’ve been to. I try to educate them, try to share information but they are so hard headed, so blind, so unable to see the gravity of the decision they are making… It’s heartbreaking to inform them that it contains cells from babies aborted just to make the vaccine and get the response that, “well we haven’t had any problems with it” or focus on the family and their response that we might as well redeem it and use it to save our kids since they don’t have to constantly abort babies for it, it was just “one time”… MY GOODNESS!!! They are basically condoning child sacrifice because it happened a while ago and it might save their kid.. WOW!

            We need to stand up and inform churches of their atrocious mistakes and WAKE THEM UP!! God is no doubt incredibly saddened and heartbroken by the ignorance and worldly lives of the people claiming to follow him.

            At this point, I no longer desire to be a “christian”. These people who claim to be pick and choose what they like and ignore the rest, they follow the world and take part in all it’s evil practices.

            The world used to seek the church for healing, now the church seeks the world to get “healed”.

    it has taken many years for me to remove the crust out of my eyes and be able to see the truth of how our medical system is ran, it’s all business. a healthy nation = no money. an unhealthy nation = money. plain and simple. pharma sees dollar signs when people are sick. and pharma reps hand out bonuses and other treats to those doctors that write out their drugs. it’s all a viscous cycle.

    from personal experience, typical red tape doctors (especially HMO plan) do not cure the root of the health problems. all they do is give drugs that then cause more problems.. i’m not against drugs as i believe they are needed for acute and emergencies.

    also, i have learned not to go in for “well baby check ups.” those visits are for vaccine pressure agenda and insurance billing. i don’t need to pay a co-payment, be pressured to vaccinate my child by a doctor that bullies me, and for them to scare the you know what out of me and then tell me my child is growing well BUT that i need to vaccinate or else my child will die or be crippled from deadly diseases, i don’t think so. and let’s not forget, they do not give you the pharma inserts and advise you to read the inserts prior to vaccinating. they don’t even tell you anything about side effect (other than a slight fever or soreness where the shot was given).

    if i’m a christian (and they know this because they ask on the info sheet), how come they (the doctors) don’t tell me that aborted embryos are used in certain childhood vaccines? and if i do not eat animal products (yes, they know this as well because they ask on info sheet the type of diet blah,blah, blah), how come they do not tell me that certain vaccines contain animal cells? that is just one of my funks that i have. now, i am not a vegan or anything like that, i’m just pointing out how we are not being informed about these vaccines even though we are telling them (the doctors) plenty of info. it should go both ways.

    i have a scale at home, i have a computer at home, and i have access to a library, so that i can look up info on what to look for regarding my family’s health. thank goodness for easy access information, lol! and thank God for people who are sharing the health! (like sarah and tony =)

    i have also learned that if any doctor doesn’t want me as their patient because i refuse vaccines, they can kiss my you know what. i don’t care. they are not God. i don’t fear them. I fear our one and only, our all mighty, our heavenly creator.

    plus, i will gladly take my business (because that is what it is) somewhere else. not too mention, i will learn how to take care of my family so that i do not waste our precious earned money visiting morons because all they do is hand out prescription drugs left and right anyways and if you question anything, they look at you like “i’m the doctor, you are the patient, you are to do as i say.” yeah right! lol! please. who do they think they are? lol!

      By directing hate and blame on parents opting out of vaccines, the manufacturers of vaccines don’t have to offer us a safer product, a more ethical product, a vegan product, a product free of common allergens. Breathtaking, isn’t it? I really can’t believe 99% of Americans don’t see this. We wouldn’t tolerate this kind of behavior from any other kind of manufacturer.

    Kudos to you for educating the public. I have also been a victim of manipulation not only for myself but my children. When my daughter was “of age” her pediatrician pressured me to have her get the cervical cancer vaccine i
    n 3 installments. Biggest regret of my life! My daughter began gaining weight over 2 years and has now been diagnosed with a pituitary tumor at 19 years old. While I am aware that environment can play a big role in your health…I believe that these vaccines were detrimental to her health. I myself live with 2 autoimmune diseases and were told that I should keep up with my flu shots. I have not received a vaccine since I have been diagnosed and if anything can come out of these posts it is that HEALTH DOES NOT COME FROM A NEEDLE. Your body is not deficient in vaccinations. You need to build your immune system up so your body can fight disease naturally. As always I thank you for SPREADING THE WORD. Before anybody gets another vaccine they should read the black box of side effects…sometimes direct effects.

      Oh April, that HPV vaccine has caused so many of our youth so much pain and suffering! I’m sorry that happened to your daughter. Just do the best that you can to try and heal her. Someone very close to me has a pituitary tumor, from high prolactin levels, and cabergoline has been very helpful in treating him. He is down to 1/2 a pill a week. His dr. took him off the medication since his tumor was undetectable on MRI, but lab results showed that his levels were high and he must continue with at least a small dose.

      I stay pretty quite about my vaccine stance-except for the HPV vaccine. I personally know a girl that has been damaged from it. My friend was told to seek psychiatric help for her daughter because she was making up all of her pain for attention. My friend would have accepted her daughters pain and suffering as some disease that just happened to her if I had not spoke up and asked her if she had the vaccines. Her diagnosis is gastroparesis-not a vaccine injury.

    In 1970 Vaccines were not allowed on babies, the elderly, people with the flu or anyone else with a compromised immune system.

    In 2002, I called the Center for Public Health at UC Berkeley, CA, and they told me that some children would die from the vaccines and they are aware of that and that was the price you pay for protecting the whole. I said so that is why we have exemptions, so those who are aware that our child may die or have horrible effects, we can protect our child. Unfortunately, the representative on the phone, still believed that some shall die, so that the whole, the rest, would benefit and exemptions were not really helpful to create herd immunity.

    Love your blog! I am an independent researcher and RN. Our FREEDOMS are being stripped from us faster than you can say ‘but the Constitution says.’ I strongly suggest checking out the alt vaccine sites such as NVIC and Vac Lib and the site Activist Post–an alternative news site–for vaccine articles. There are a bunch up now as the drum beat to vaccinate for measles is ramping up like wildfire.

    Pediatricians that dismiss clients who refuse to vaccinate DON’T care what you think. They themselves haven’t done any research on this and certainly don’t want an informed parent ‘schooling’ them. Why do parents put their pediatrician on a pedestal? You mainly see him for well child visits. Does a doc you see randomly need to tell you your kid is healthy?? You know when something is not ‘right’ and take them to the doctor. Well child visits are to give your kids vaccinations and they are a major money maker for the doc. Shop around for a doc who will give you a choice. And if you are feeling confident print up a bunch of vaccine articles and hand them to a resistive doc.

      The vulnerable should ABSOLUTELY NOT get vaccines. They are most vulnerable to death or vaccine injury from the shots. Your question is from the perspective that vaccines actually work and THEY DO NOT. They only cause the illnesses they claim to prevent and make people sick. It is a scam and a way to create a very sick population. Everyone should stay away from all shots and particularly the vulnerable.

        Yes agreed. I’ve heard several cases recently though where people admitted to the hospital in very sick condition were vaccinated before the treatment even began. It seems as though the cavalier attitude about vaccines has become so pervasive that even those that are sick are getting shots. Very troubling.

          We agree people who are vulnerable should not get vaccinated. My question is about those same people. They are more likely to get infected because people are not getting vaccinated. For instance, the father who took his daughter being treated for cancer to a doctor’s office whereo I will ask it differently.

            Margaret, both a person who has caught wild measles & a person who receives an MMR vaccine can potentially spread the disease. My husband is immunocompromised, & we avoid those who have been freshly vaccinated w/ live virus vaccines like the plague when we can…obviously, it’s difficult to do because you don’t always know who has just been vaccinated w/ whatever vaccine. Flu season is a scary time for us due to the shedding of the flu mist vaccine. We dread it every year.

            Immunocompromised individuals will always be high risk to ANY & every kind of bacteria or virus. To focus only on measles as a risk to these people is ridiculous. The flu kills more more immunocompromised people than the measles. The measles is being thrust into the limelight to try to round up the herd, & scare them into obeying by giving up their medical freedom to reject a vaccine. There are currently over 300 vaccines waiting to be released by biopharmaceutical companies.

            A measles vaccine is not a guarantee to protect anyone. It may or may not produce titers…hence the reason vaccinated people have also come down w/ the wild measles. Also, science has yet to prove that titers produced via vaccines equals immunization to the wild viruses they are intended for.

I believe you understand but you are not getting the answer you want. You want someone to say the unvaccinated put people at risk. You’ve already made up your mind. Again, the vaccines do not work and they actually cause normal healthy people to become compromised by causing autoimmune disorders.

    This is what almost all the pediatricians are like at Space Coast Florida. When we moved here my children were older and my oldest had all the vaccinations up to 5 years old. My son had PDD-NOS (autism) and we were dealing with cleaning him up through diet, chelation, and supplements. I had to take my youngest -which we didn’t vaccinate, but had some vaccinations in China-to a pediatrician because of an eye infection. We got into an argument about her getting a tetanus shot and he touted that the other doctors insisted on all vaccinations while he only required one. I told him she was not going to be vaccinated. Towards the end, I asked him what the ingredients were. HA! He had to go get the vaccine and pull out the insert. I then proceeded to tell him what was in it and that I was not getting my daughter vaccinated. He then told me that he could not see my daughter again. When I asked what was wrong with her eye, he told me he didn’t know. I received 2 certified letters stating that he wouldn’t treat her. I don’t know what made him think I would even consider coming back.
    Now I have started using more supplements and essential oils. When we do have a medical problem, the first place I go is the health food store. Everything they have given my has worked great. It’s a heck of a lot cheaper than going to the doctor and paying for prescriptions!
    As far as her eye went, it was a reoccurring problem. I went home and looked up treatments in my Natural Healing book and one thing it said was to put grated, raw potato on it. It was gone the next day and never returned. I wonder what’s in potatoes that worked.

        Hi Sarah…I love you and your blog and have been a subscriber ever since I found you and Weston Price. Thanks for all you do to educate all of us and get the truth out! :)

        With that being said, I have to say, out of love and respect, that the statement that you made above concerning your family friend doctor…

        “No need to do that. He is no doubt a mentally tortured individual anyway. Who could live with themselves knowing that their primary job everyday is to poison babies and children?”

        …I feel, sounds a bit bitter and only adds ammunition to the arsenal of the people that we are fighting. I feel EXACTLY as you do, but with your position as a powerful mediator for the welfare of us all, wording your feelings like this only causes the skeptics and opponents to throw your opinion more so to the wayside and write you off as a disgruntled, emotional, mother. :( Which we hate even more! lol

        I doubt your doctor truly wanted to poison babies and children, and you deepdown, probably don’t really believe this either. He was ignorant and arrogant definitely, but he only knows what he has been taught and brainwashed with. He very well may still feel that he is right after all this time and if he read your statement about him, he would only become defensive and never give you the benefit of the doubt or come to see your point- no matter how much evidence there is to prove you right and him wrong.

        But you and I both, Sarah, have the ability to cause these kinds of people to look at things differently, from our view, by the way we “say” it. Sure, there are many that we will never change their mind, but there are many that we can and will as well. We just have to be compassionate and have empathy for the “enemy” and realize that most of these people are like you and I- They have families that they love and they want to protect, but also want to do and feel like they have contributed something good in this world. People don’t start out being “evil” or “off”. It is slowly indoctrinated into them. But if we can care not only about the “good” people, but about the “bad” ones as well, I think we would accomplish our mission much faster and more effectively.

        I don’t expect or want you to publish this as it wasn’t meant for anyone but you. I do realize that the topic at hand gets you stirred up, which is completely understandable- it does me, too. Sometimes I get so mad at God for allowing me to know so much because, at times, it makes me feel so frustrated, angry and powerless in such an evil world. I just hope and pray that you do not take offense to what I am saying and where I am coming from.

        Again, I love you and your blog. Please don’t ever let nasty comments or opposing people cause you to quit. Remember- “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”. -Edmund Burke

          Kris, I doubt this doctor’s motivation is to poison babies but these are indeed the results of his ignorance – like most doctors. One must research how the Medical Establishment got started by the Rockefeller’s about 100 years ago to see the strong connection between medical schools, pharma companies and the doctors that serve them….all part of the same conglomerate and it is not about healing but about money. Sarah is just telling what is really happening – strong words, but maybe needed. The time for being mealy-mouthed about this is over. Our opponents surely don’t worry about any harsh words.

            Hi Marti, I agree with everything you said, including the Rockefller’s, but my point wasn’t about Sarah not telling what is really happening, it was about being careful about using our opinions. You are correct, our opponents are NOT concerned about slinging harsh words at us, but my point is how much merit does that hold with people? They get defensive and they don’t listen when we use opinions rather than facts.

            I DO agree with Sarah, but I want us to remember that there are some people involved in these medical jobs and positions that are truly good people, but are just simply being deceived. Not everyone in favor of vaccines is evil. I just always try to remember that. And if we’re more careful with our opinions when dealing with people who don’t agree with us, the better chance there is that we will win them over in the long run.

            I am in no way saying that Sarah is insensitive or not compassionate- she seems extremely sweet. It was just the slight bitter sarcasm (although well deserved and probably accurate- lol) that caused me to see her comment through the eyes of those opposed.

            But despite my desire for us to be more empathetic towards those who are deceived, I am also acutely aware that we cannot effectively deal with true evil in the same way. When dealing with true evil there should be no rules- No holds barred. :)

    We were without a pediatrician for 3 years because the only one in town refused patients who were not “up to date” on immunizations. Turns out, none of our 5 boys were sick enough in those 3 years to need one anyway. Hmmm.

    I’m sorry that you had to experience that with your doctor and it’s nice that you posted about it! I am scared enough about the foods we are eating that are deemed “Safe” by our government but am petrified about the vaccinations that go into our bodies! Our Chiropractor has 6 kids and refuses to vaccinate any of them. He is huge on healthy eating and avoiding all processed food. His kids are all healthy and rarely ever catch a cold or the flu. Why can’t this be the normal process to follow?!

    I hope that you listen to your gut feeling!

    A neighbor’s little boy had a severe reaction to being vaccinated years ago but they found the proper dr who diagnosed him and today thru diet and supplements, he is happy and healthier than ever. This family went from ordering pizza 3 times a week and eating junk food to eating grass fed, organic, raw milk, ghee, etc.

      Roxy, a lot of us have that problem with family. Not everyone has the same facility to see the “light”.

    Thank you for being courageous to stand your ground. There was even a one-sided argument in NPR radio this morning and it really frightens me that so many people think they can dictate our decisions in a free society. They also don’t represent both sides!

      Yes! I have been angry at NPR for their blatant one-sided coverage of vaccines this week. I heard them mention once that it was part of their series sponsored by Kaiser. It was a good reminder for me that everyone has a bias.

        Years ago I had an argument with a pharm salesman at a drug fair frequently held in the Kaiser facilities. I argued that drugs (especially the safe ones) were unnecessarily high in cost when Kaiser offered shots and drugs at NO cost to employees. He had no answer when I questioned how many times does a particular drug need to pay back its own research. There are wonderful docs out there in and out of Kaiser, but like everything else…test the water.
