Well I have seen a couple of threads thrown up over the last day or two about Autism and the non-existant link with vaccines. Too me, one case is
enough and it seems people are missing some interesting scenarios after children have taken a vaccine. Now I'm no expert on the subject, I don't have
autistic kids myself but I think there are important issues being overlooked.
Vaccine court is the popular term which refers to the Office of Special Masters of the U.S.
Court of Federal Claims, which administers a no-fault system for litigating vaccine injury claims. These claims against vaccine manufacturers cannot
normally be filed in state or federal civil courts, but instead must be heard in the Court of Claims, sitting without a jury.
The program was established by the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), passed by the United States Congress in response to a threat to
the vaccine supply due to a 1980s scare over the DPT vaccine. Despite the belief of most public health officials that claims of side effects were
unfounded, large jury awards had been given to some plaintiffs, most DPT vaccine makers had ceased production, and officials feared the loss of herd
Some parents of children with autism spectrum disorders have attributed the disorders' onset to vaccines, often citing the mercury-based preservative
thiomersal as the cause, and some have filed suit for compensation from vaccine makers. The medical and scientific communities continue to debate the
link between routine childhood vaccines and autism.
The first thing I want to point out is amount of lawsuits which have been made and people have also won. The question I want to ask you deniers is how
can parents be winning lawsuits regarding this issue? If there was no link, there would be no need for lawsuits, let alone people winning them also.
(NaturalNews) Quietly and without much fanfare, the
federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), or more accurately the congressionally-sanctioned kangaroo court whose sole purpose is to shield
the vaccine industry from liability for vaccine injuries, has essentially admitted that vaccines cause autism. As reported by the Huffington Post, two
more children who developed autism following routine vaccinations have been awarded millions of dollars to help pay for the lifetime of specialized
care they will need to address their injuries.
So how is it that the vaccine court can continue to award ridiculous amounts of money to parents if there is no link what so ever? I think some people
need to research this issue a bit further before determining that this is some myth. A lot of kids have wound up with lifelong issues because of these
d source - The first case involves a 10-year-old boy named Ryan from California who quickly regressed into an autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
following routine vaccinations he received between 2003 and 2005, and specifically the combination measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine. Prior to
getting vaccinated, Ryan was a perfectly healthy young boy who was actually quite advanced for his age, according to reports. But after getting the
MMR vaccine on December 19, 2003, he rather quickly developed an encephalopathy, or serious inflammation, in his brain.
From the same article..
Similarly, a young girl named Emily developed a seizure disorder and a form of ASD known as pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specific
(PDD-NOS) following vaccination with DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis), as well as MMR, HiB (haemophilus influenzae type B), and Prevnar
(pneumococcal conjugate vaccine), at 15 months old. According to Emily's court filing, the young girl developed a fever of 105.7 degrees Fahrenheit
following the vaccines, which developed into seizures, shaking episodes, and a measles-type rash.
Now one thing that really confuses me is the need for a "Vaccine court" in the first place if there is no connection between Autism and vaccines.
Don't you find that stupid? Telling people there is no link and then having a specialised court to deal with the issue at the same time? Why?
The truth is the evidence is inconclusive. They don't know whether vaccines cause autism or not and by awarding parents large amounts of money, they
are pretty much conceding that there is a link. Now here's a couple more cases of where infants/children have deteriorated after getting certain
It was a debate that had been put to rest. Or so we thought.
Almost two years ago, a
federal court in the United States upheld a ruling that vaccines are not to blame for autism. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit upheld
the decision that there is little if any evidence to support claims of a link between vaccines and autism. New evidence continued to deliver blow
after blow to the original theory until the researcher who initially blew the whistle on the supposed link between vaccines and autism was declared a
The debate appeared to be over — until now.
In a landmark ruling, an Italian court has awarded £140,000 (about $219,000 U.S.) to the parents of Valentino Bocca, stating that the boy's autism
was caused by the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella that he received at 9 months old. Valentino's parents could be awarded an additional
£800,000 ($1.2 million) as their case continues.
Just some more proof that the vaccine issue is back on the table. Why rule in favour of the parents if vaccines have no affect when autism is brought
According to a document filed on December 13, 2012, Chief Special Master
Patricia E. Campbell-Smith awarded Ryan B. Mojabi $969,474.91 for injuries caused by the MMR vaccine.  You should also know the money awarded comes
from a vaccine tax and not from taking the vaccine manufacturers to court.
And just to finish off, you aren't even sueing the vaccine manufacturer.. Now I agree that vaccines are very useful but to simply discount a link
between Autism and Vaccines is stupid. Again, why have a vaccine court if the evidence is conclusive? Why can't the manufacturer be sued? Prove me
otherwise.. Unlike the other two threads posted over the last couple of days, I have provided evidence to suggest that Autism is caused by
