The time has come for medical professionals to speak out about the damage vaccines are causing. Since smallpox, the first widely used vaccine, was introduced in the late 1700s, the government, the medical profession, and vaccine manufacturers have been pushing to make vaccination mandatory. The reasons are complex and misguided, and include blind trust in a faulty system, lust for profits, and a desire to control the populace.
The first vaccine resistance movement, called Our Babies’ Battle, emerged at the same time the first compulsory vaccination law was passed in the UK in 1853. Children were dying of gangrene and other infections caused by the smallpox vaccines (yes, vaccines have been damaging people from the beginning). People have continued to resist to this very day. If vaccines were truly safe, there would be nothing to protest…. but they are not safe, nor are they very effective. The entire vaccine industry – including most pediatricians – will not admit that vaccines regularly cause serious side effects and even death, but there are hundreds of research studies that prove it. For lists of articles on this topic go here and here. Nearly 1,000 more articles on problems caused by vaccines can be found at VaccineResearchLibrary.com
I first became aware there were problems with vaccinations in the early 1980s when I saw a baby who had died of SIDS arrive in the emergency room around 2 am. The medical history I obtained from the parents revealed that the baby had been vaccinated within the last 18 hours. I witnessed this tragic sequence of events two more times early in my career. There have been countless other similar cases. The US has one of the highest SIDS rates in the developed world.
For some reason, in each case, I was the only one on the scene who linked the SIDS death with vaccines having been given the day before. Perhaps it was because I already had a healthy dose of skepticism about the conventional medical system; perhaps it is because I am in independent thinker. In any case, the observation that SIDS was preceded by vaccines led me to not vaccinate my own son, born in 1985. I also never vaccinated my patients in a non-elective manner, earlier than 6 months of age, or gave more than one injection at a time. I also never vaccinated anyone who was sick in any way, even with a mild cold. Eventually, as more and more damning evidence emerged, I stopped vaccinating altogether, a decision I have never regretted.
I have always approached vaccination as a completely elective procedure that should never be mandated. I believe all medical professionals and institutions should view it this way. Medical professionals need to educate themselves about the dangers of vaccines. They need to stand up and endorse educated freedom of choice.
I put medical professionals into several categories when it comes to their views on vaccines and vaccine mandates:
- Some actually believe that vaccines are safe and protective. These physicians are either uneducated or stupid. Those who are uneducated need to study, learn, and embrace the truth. I am not sure what to say to those who are stupid. They are pawns in a system they do not understand and, in my opinion, should not be practicing medicine. Parents, beware. Avoid these practitioners.
- Some professionals know that vaccines cause harm but keep vaccinating anyway because they are afraid to speak up. Perhaps they are afraid of losing their jobs. Perhaps they are afraid of being publicly humiliated or marginalized, these days referred to being “Wakefielded.” Those practitioners are cowardly. I could not work in a professional setting where I had to perform procedures I knew were harming innocent babies and children. It is tragic that many doctors and nurses feel trapped in these types of settings and don’t have the courage to extricate themselves. They need to band together and collectively just say NO to doing procedures they know are harmful. Parents, I recommend avoiding these practitioners as well.
- Finally, some practitioners know or suspect that vaccines cause harm but they just don’t care. Perhaps they like the money they earn from administering so many vaccines. Perhaps they like the power they wield over parents when they can force, guilt, or browbeat them into submitting their children to being vaccinated “on the schedule.” Perhaps they like the power they feel when they threaten parents with expulsion from their medical practices for “failure to comply.” I view this category of practitioner as greedy and even evil. I’m not sure how many individuals in clinical practice fall into this category, but I’m quite sure that many working in government and the vaccine industry fit this profile. Apparently they could not care less about the damage they are doing to children, and also teens, adults, and elders with their ever-increasing vaccine schedules. It goes without saying, people should steer clear of this type of practitioner.
So, medical professionals, I call upon you to wise up, stand up, and do the right thing. Join the growing list of doctors and nurses who are speaking out against vaccine mandates. The truth is coming to light and soon it will be undeniable, even by the Establishment. What side of history do you want to be on after the dust settles? Hopefully more of you will opt for the light.
