Mufti Taqi’s fatawa on Pornography on the Internet


http://reliablefatwas.com/honourable-mufti-taqi-sahib-it-is-now-too-late/NOURABLE MUFTI TAQI SAHIB – IT IS NOW TOO LATE!

 

Honorable Mufti, Its too late now!!!!!

[By Hazrat Maulana Ahmad Sadeq Desai]

Hadhrat  Mufti Taqi Sahib has issued the following fatwa:

THE PERILS OF THE ONLINE WORLD. LET US STOP DELUDING OURSELVES.

‘One of the major sinful involvement of our era is viewing the sexually explicit material online. May Allah protect us all from it. Ameen!

It is haraam (impermissible) for a person to have an Internet connection and computer devices if he cannot keep himself from viewing these material online.Throw them away!  This is an essential spiritual struggle (mujahidah) to gain Allah’s pleasure.” 26 Ramadan 1437/2 July 2016, Masjid Dar ul Uloom Karachi. (End of Fatwa)

OUR COMMENT

Mufti Taqi Sahib should take the liability of the sins of millions of Muslims for whom he had  widely opened the avenue of pornography by issuing his baatil, corrupt opinion of the permissibility of video and digital pictures of animate objects. He is responsible for the ruin of the Akhlaaq of innumerable juhala Muslims and so-called molvis who are worse than even the juhala.

The one who initiates a fitnah will have to bear the colossal and terrible burden of the sins of all those who indulge in that fitnah which he had initiated. It is now too late for the statement of condemnation of ‘sexually explicit material’. It is now of no effect to say that such porn on the internet is haraam? It is of no benefit to say “Throw them away!” The addicts of pornography will not throw the computers away.

Mufti Taqi Sahib has addicted them to the porn which once upon a time they had not dared to view. May Allah Ta’ala save us from the traps of shaitaan – Talbeesul Iblees.  May Allah Ta’ala save us from the evil lurking in our nafs – evil which the Ulama of the era present in ‘deeni’ hues.

Mufti Taqi Sahib and ourselves are on the threshold of Maut (Death) which is stalking us  every moment. The Qabr calls on us five times a day: “I am an abode of sand! I am an abode of darkness! I am an abode of worms (and scorpions and snakes, etc.)! I am an abode of torment!, etc.”

Muftis who  have deflected the masses from Siraatul Mustaqeem with their baatil, haraam and corrupt fatwas, should  reflect on Maut and the Qabr as all of us are required to do. There is not much time left  for life to end.

Mufti Taqi’s only succour now is to make valid amends by issuing a massive retraction of his baatil fatwa and then go on a campaign to denounce pictography which is the fundamental basis and root of the pornography which he now says is haraam.

Our evil will live and haunt us into the Grave and into Qiyaamah. Reckless production of corrupt/baatil ‘fatwas’ which open the gateway for fitnah, fasaad, fisq and fujoor which are all the stepping stones for kufr, is the height of satanic irresponsibility displayed by the muftis of this era. A Mufti is required to constantly hover between Jannat and Jahannam when he is about to issue a fatwa. And, this has greater applicability when the Mufti Sahib is in the twilight of life, on the verge of meeting Allah Azza Wa Jal. If this is not his attitude, he will be rudely shocked when suddenly Malakul Maut stands in his presence.

The burden of the sins of the masses shall have to be carried by the Mufti who had opened the avenue for fisq and fujoor thereby issuing a halaal certificate for the villainy which Allah Azza Wa Jal has made haraam.

PROTEST MARCHES in Islam


PROTEST MARCHES ARE HARAAM

Allah Ta’ala has created the Community of Muslims for the Aakhirah, not for this dunya. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Verily, the dunya (world) was created for you whilst you were created for the Aakhirah.” This world is a temporary halting place for the onward journey back home to Jannat. Muslims are allowed to acquire from this world only the ways and means of transport towards the Aakhirah, and such provisions which will be of benefit in the Hereafter. It does not behove Muslims to become assimilated in the ways and cultures of the kuffaar.  Everything of the Muslim is distinct and distinguished from the ways of non-Muslims. Inclining to the ways and styles of non-Muslims is a major sin. The Qur’aan Hakeem says in this regard:

“Do not incline to the transgressors (kuffaar), for then the Fire will overtake you, and there are no friends for you besides Allah. Then, you shall not be aided.” (Surah Hood, Aayat 113).

The Qur’aan and the Ahaadith are replete with warnings against assimilation with or even inclination towards non-Muslims. There is no affinity, neither physical nor moral nor spiritual, between Muslims and non-Muslims. These two entities are diametric opposites since Imaan and kufr are irreconcilable opposites which are mutually repellent.

Protest marches even if it be baselessly assumed that they are devoid of any acts and practices which are Islamically prohibited, then too are haraam.  These are not methods for Muslim adoption. Every act, every step and every word that go into making a kuffaar-style protest march is haraam and mal-oon (accursed).

The promiscuous intermingling of sexes, intermingling of Muslims and kuffaar, both males and females, insane painting of faces, clowning and cooning, raucous conduct, prancing monkey-like in the streets, howling, vandalism, intimidation, haraam picture-making (photography and videoing), music, singing, shouting obscenities, joining in kufr prayers, riya (ostentation), takabbur (pride) and much more are all the satanic ingredients of these kuffaar-style protest marches.

There is no room in Islam for these satanic protest marches where even men who profess to be ‘ulama’ denude and debase themselves. The absolutely degrading participation of females in terms of the Qur’aan and Sunnah, is exhibitions of zina. The participation in such flagrantly haraam marches/functions by Muslim females and so-called molvies and sheikhs, is absolutely mind-boggling in terms of Imaani intelligence. Without hesitation it may be inferred that the ulama-e-soo’ (vile, immoral so-called ulama) can only be munaafiqeen. Any molvi/sheikh who sees the way clear for participating in a march to Jahannam must most certainly be a munaafiq.

The fussaaq and fujjaar Muslim masses are being misled by the munaafiq ‘ulama’ who masquerade as religious guides when in reality they are devils in human bodies. They are the worst scum under the sky. Swines are nobler than these filthy specimens of satanism about whom the Qur’aan states:

“The kuffaar will be driven to Jahannam so that filth may be separated from purity. And He  (Allah) will pile khabeeth on to khabeeth, making them all into a pile. Then will they be cast into Jahannam. They are indeed the losers.” (Al-Anfaal, Aayat 36,37)

The munaafiq ulama-e-soo’ will be piled into layers in the piles of filth which will be cast into Hell-Fire. Never in the history of Islam have ulama descended to this shocking level of moral decadence which is being beheld in this age. Without the slightest vestige of shame they flagrantly and publicly advocate and participate in functions of zina, fisq and fujoor. Not only do this pile of ghutha (filth) participate in the moral filth and much which they halaalize, they exhort even Muslim females to denude themselves in public and to eradicate from their hearts every iota of Imaani haya.  Is it possible for an Aalim who has sound Imaan to derive delight and to participate in a zina gathering where Muslim females are denuding themselves physically and morally, thereby deracinating their very Imaan?

Such vile and filthy molvies and sheikhs are the illegitimate progeny of Iblees, hence Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) described them as shayaateen fi juthmaanil ins (devils in human bodies). In another Hadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) described these molvies and sheikhs who pillage and plunder the Imaan and Akhlaaq of the ignorant masses as men with the hearts of wolves. Indeed, these devils in human form with the hearts of wolves are not Muslim scholars. They are not molvies and sheikhs. They are reverends, priests and pundits and Satanists.

The ignorant and fussaaq Muslim masses will not be exculpated in Qiyaamah when they will attempt to argue that they merely followed the shayaateen leaders. Even shaitaan will say to them: “In fact, you are criminals”. (Qur’aan) While the punishment and disgrace of the ulama-e-soo’ will be multiplied manifold, the ignorant and immoral masses will not escape their punishment in Hell-Fire.  Following filthy leaders who profess to be scholars (molvies and sheikhs) will not be accepted as extenuating circumstances when the transgressors are sentenced to Jahannam.  Allah Ta’ala has warned the masses in the Qur’aan:

“They take their molvies and their sheikhs and Maseeh, the son of Maryam as gods besides Allah.”  (At-Taubah, Aayat 31)

When the masses follow the haraam and evil ‘fatwas’ of the ulama-e-soo’ it is tantamount to elevating the villains to the pedestal of godhood. In other words, they are making gods of their reverends, pundits and filthy, vile molvies and sheikhs who treacherously betray the Deen for miserable worldly and nafsaani gains.

“Verily, the life of this world is but play and amusement while the Abode of the Aakhirah is best for those who fear (*Allah). What do you have no intelligence?”

It is harām for a male to teach girls of six years and over?


 

Question

 

A South African Mufti wrote on the topic of sexual molestation of little girls in madaaris and issued a fatwa that “It is HARAAM for a male to teach girls of six years and over even if the teacher has the countenance of a Buzrug.” He says this age limit was mentioned by Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi.

Please clarify this. How was this age limit (of 6 years) decided, and is this hurmat only due to khalwa happening between the teacher and the girl, or is it haram under any and all conditions?

 

Answer

 

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

This is the opinion of Mufti A.S. Desai (dāmat barakātuh), a senior Ālim of South Africa. If you require further clarification on his fatwā, you may contact him directly at the following address:

Use of Pig in Islam


DON’T LET SANHA, THE PORK-HALAALIZER BEFUDDLE AND BAMBOOZLE YOU

In a desperate and abortive attempt to scavenge some credibility for its noxious reputation soiled in carrion blood from the stupid and deceptive pronouncements of the Malaysian government, and the Malaysian carrion halaalizer, Jakim, the South African Carrion and Pork Halaalize (SACPH), also known as SANHA, disgorged some laughable comics and bunkum  in its latest  pork bulletin. The pork stupidities disgorged in its bulletin shall be  refuted in another article, Insha-Allah. Here, we reproduce an eye-opening PORK article from which  it is clear that:

  • The word of manufacturers should NOT be trusted
  • The word of carrion halaalizing outfits such as SANHA, MJC, NIHT, JAKIM, etc. should NOT be trusted.
  • A wide variety of products contain PORK ingredients camoflauged with chemical names and E-numbers.

In the deluge of processed foods and carrion chicken and meat which Muslims are consuming, PORK ingredients are obiquitiously and ominously present. Don’t allow the shayaateen of these haraam ‘halaal’ certificate scoundrel outfits to trick, befuddle and bamboozle  you with their ‘kosher’ claims. Their very Imaan is in doubt. They are among the vilest devils out to destroy the morality and spiritual fibre of the Ummah. They do all of this shaitaaniyat for the sake of the haraam boodle with which they nourish their bodies –fattening their bodies to be fuel for Jahannam. Now read this PORK eye-opener written by a concerned NON-MUSLIM.

 

THE 180 USES OF PORK

Christein Meindertsma, 29, said: ‘Like most people, I had little idea of what happens to a pig after it leaves the abattoir so I decided to try to find out. I approached a pig farmer friend who agreed let me follow one of his animals.’ Identified by its yellow ear tag number, 05049, her pig trail ended with her identifying an incredible 185 different uses to which it was put –  from the manufacture of sweets and shampoo, to bread, body lotion, beer and bullets.

Christein said: ‘I was shocked when I began to find out just how unusual and varied the different uses for a ordinary pig were. It’s almost as if these days, a pig is no longer thought of an animal  –  more like an industrial raw material with a mind-blowing amount of different uses.’ She found that 4.9lbs of her 16st 3lb pig went to making wine gums, while 4.8lbs went into liquorice. In this process, collagen is taken from the pig and is then converted into gelatine. This finds its way into numerous foodstuffs, where it acts as a gelling agent.

Although not all sweets in the UK contain pork gelatine, many do  –  including Marks & Spencer’s hugely popular and aptly-named Percy Pigs sweets. It is not only sweets that contain pork gelatine. In some beers, wines and fruit juices, pig gelatine is used to remove the cloudiness from the drink. It works as a clarifying agent by reacting with the tannins in the liquid and absorbing the cloudiness.

Some ice creams, whipped creams, yoghurts and certain butters also contain gelatine, as do certain pet foods. More surprisingly, a number of medicines also contain pig gelatine  –  everything from painkillers to multivitamins.

Hygiene and beauty products are also made of pig. Fatty acids extracted from the bone fat of pigs are used in shampoos and conditioners to give them their shiny, pearl-like appearance. These acids can also be found in a number of body lotions, foundations and anti-wrinkle creams. Glycerine made from pork fat is also an ingredient in many types of toothpaste.

Christein, from Holland, found that while some companies were reluctant to cooperate in her quest, others claimed that they didn’t even realise their products contained elements taken from a pig because of the middle men involved in the complex distribution process. The confusion is not helped by the fact that it is not clear on products’ ingredient labels where they originally came from.

According to the Food Standards Authority, there is no legal obligation for manufacturers to specify whether the gelatine they use is from a pig or another animal. When it is specified, it is often confusingly referred to as Suilline gelatine. According to Richard Lutwyche  –  a British pig farmer with more than 60 years experience, chair of the Traditional Breeds Meat Marketing Company and a member of the British Pig Association  –  the reasons for much of this confusion is due to the industrial-scale of much pig farming.

‘In the UK, big commercial farms send their pigs to large abattoirs. The abattoir will find different markets for all the by-products,’ he says. ‘Everything they can’t sell they have to incinerate, so it’s in their best interest to sell as much as they can.

‘There’s an old expression that says: when it comes to pig, you can use everything but the squeal. Over the past 100 years those uses have expanded rapidly.’

Some of the surprising products that can include pig material include photographic film, which uses collagen from pig bones; shoes that use bone glue from pigs to improve the quality of the leather; and certain paints that use bone fat to enhance their glossy properties.

Some makers of cigarettes use haemoglobin from pig’s blood in their filters. Apparently this element works as a sort of ‘artificial lung’ in the cigarette so, they claim, ‘harmful reactions take place before the chemicals reach the user’. And the next time you buy a loaf of bread you would be well advised to read the packaging. Some manufacturers use an ingredient called L-cysteine, which is a protein made from pig or other animal hair and which is used to soften the dough.

A product like Tesco’s Plain Tortilla Wraps includes this ingredient. The strangest use for a pig by-product that Christein found was in bullets and explosives. Pig bone gelatine was used to help transport the gunpowder or cordite into the bullet. It is difficult not to be impressed by the sheer versatility of this animal and its parts.

Virtually nothing in a pig goes to waste. The snout from Pig 05049 became a deep-fried dog snack, while pig ears are sometimes used for chemical weapon testing due to their similarity to human tissue. Tattoo artists even buy sections of pig skin to practise their craft on due to its similarity to human skin, while it is occasionally used with burns patients for the same reason.

Pigs make an enormous contribution to medicine, with insulin, the blood-thinning drug heparin and pig heart valves all vital. However, for vegetarians, Jews keeping kosher, Muslims and anybody else wishing to avoid pig products, this may not be such good news. The complex workings of the global food and processing industry have ensured that it is almost impossible to avoid pig altogether.

DUA FOR THE IRAQI MUJAHIDEEN


“THE UMMAH ALL OVER THE WORLD IS SUPPLICATING TO ALLAH TA’ALA TO GRANT THE MUJAAHIDEEN IN IRAQ A RESOUNDING VICTORY OVER THE ENEMY.  ALL MUSLIMS SHOULD FERVENTLY MAKE DUA THAT ALLAH TA’ALA ALLOWS THE MUJAAHIDEEN TO CONSOLIDATE THEIR SPECTACULAR GAINS AND TO ESTABLISH A GENUINE DARUL ISLAM.”

The huge and spectacular victory and gains which the Mujaahideen of ISIS (The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) have made in recent days,  their lightning advance towards Baghdad, and the ignominious flight of 30,000 Iraqi Shiah soldiers abandoning their weapons in the onslaught by 1,300 Mujaahideen  have surprised and flabbergasted both the Mujaahideen and the kuffaar enemies. There is no rational explanation for these stunning successes of the Mujaahideen. We can interpret it only as being the Nusrat of Allah Ta’ala.

Cautioning the Mujaahideen against vanity, pride and injustice, a spokesman for ISIS said:

“Beware of ujub (vanity) and the nafs (bestial emotion). Do not let your nafs be the victim of your recent military successes and gains such as  the Humvees, helicopters, rifles and military equipment you have captured. Be  just and moderate to the Sunnis even to those who  had previously fought on the side of the (kufr/shiah) government. Accept their repentance. Do not interfere with those who do not interfere with you. Forgive your Sunni brothers and be gentle to their tribes.

It is Allah Alone who defeats the Shiahs. Praise unto Allah Who instils fear into the hearts of the Shiahs. Do not concede territory to them unless they walk over your dead bodies to gain it. March towards Baghdad, and do not let the Shiahs breathe. The Shiahs are a disgraceful people. They worship the dead and stone.

Only recently have we been subjected to imprisonment, torture and military raids. We had to take refuge in the mountains, in underground bunkers, in valleys and in the expanse of the desert.”

 

The least the Ummah can offer is to make fervent and constant Dua for the victory of the Mujaahideen and the establishment of a true Darul Islam.

Abu Abdullah Al-Andalusi (RA)


The Unique Story of Abu Abdullah Al-Andalusi (RA)

For the intelligent, an indication is sufficient…Subhanallah, this story is filled with so many lessons for everyone. Please read it with the intention to learn the lessons from the life of Shaikh Abu Abdullah Al-Andalusi (RA), and also the character of his devoted and loyal students. I pray that Allah grants every reader the tawfeeq to benefit from this and to protect us all from any tests of this sort. Aameen.

Note: Since this is not a formal Arabic written entry, the rules of Arabic have not been enforced such as in the name of the Shaykh, etc.

In Baghdad, the seat of the Islamic State, was a pious saint by the name of Abu Abdullah Al-Andalusi. He was a well-known scholar and muhaddith and twelve thousand disciples sat at his feet. He knew thirty thousand ahadith by heart, and could recite the Quran in all the various modes of Qiraat.

On a certain occasion he was going on a journey and was accompanied with a large crowd of attendants among whom were the well-known Junayd Baghdadi and Shaikh Shibli Rahimahumullah.

Shaikh Shibli continues the story: Our caravan was travelling along safely and comfortably with the grace of Allah, until we passed by an area where Christians were residing. When we reached the Christian village, we searched for water but could not find any. We went about the village and discovered that there were many churches, temples of sun-worship and synagogues. Some of the people worshipped idols and others prayed to the cross. We were amazed at their condition.

We passed all this and reached the outskirts of the village where we found a well and a few girls drawing water for people to drink. Amongst these girls was one who was exceedingly beautiful. She wore a gold necklace around her neck. When Shaikh Abu Abdullah saw her the colour of his face changed. The Shaikh asked the other girls who she was.

They replied: “This is the daughter of the ruler of this village.”
The Shaikh replied: “But, why has her father dishonoured her by leaving her to give people water to drink?”
The girls replied: “Her father has done this so that when she marries she will be able to honour and serve her husband. He does not want her to become boastful of her status.”

The Shaikh sat down with his head bent forward and remained silent. For three days he did not eat or drink. He would only perform his Salaah. His disciples and companions did not know what to do or say.

Shaikh Shibli says : ‘I decided to speak to him. I approached him and said, “O Shaikh, your disciples and companions are perplexed with your silence for the last three days. Please speak to us.”

The Shaikh replied: “O people, know that my heart has become filled with love for the girl I saw the other day. It is not possible for me under any circumstances to leave from here.”

Shaikh Shibli replied: “Our leader! You are the spiritual guide of Iraq. Your piety is well-known far and wide. Your disciples number over twelve thousand. By the sanctity of the Noble Quran do not bring disgrace to us and them.”

The Shaikh replied: “O people, my lot has already been sealed by fate. I am nothing. The cloak of sainthood has been removed from me and the signs of guidance have been taken away from me.”

Saying this the Shaikh began weeping bitterly. “Proceed and leave me alone. My fate has been sealed,” he told them.

We were astonished. We begged Allah for His protection and we cried until the land beneath our feet became wet with our tears.

We returned to Baghdad. When the people heard of our return, they arrived in large numbers at the outskirts of the city to meet the Shaikh. They saw that he was not with us and asked where he was. We told them the entire story. Many of his disciples died out of grief when they heard of his condition. Others cried in sorrow and disbelief. Many begged Allah to guide the Shaikh to the right path and return him to them. All his places of instruction and preaching were closed down.

We remained in this sad condition for one full year. Finally, I, together with a few companions decided to visit the village again and find out how our Shaikh was doing. When we reached the village we asked regarding him and were told that he was in the woods looking after pigs. We asked: “What has happened?” We were told that he had proposed for the girl in marriage. But, the girl’s father had refused saying that her suitor had to meet certain conditions : he had to follow the same religion as her, he had to become a servant in the church and he had to look after the pigs. The Shaikh had fulfilled all these conditions and was currently seeing to the pigs.

“With broken hearts and tears streaming down our eyes, we went to the woods to find him. He was standing amongst the pigs. Around his waist was a string of beads. On his head was the traditional Christian hat. He stood leaning on the staff that he once used to lean on when delivering the sermon in the mihraab!

When he saw us he bowed his head in shame. We came nearer and said, “Assalaamu Alaikum.” He replied: “Wa Alaikumus salaam”.

Shaikh Shibli then asked: “O Shaikh, what is all this? What has happened to you? What has happened to all your knowledge and virtue?”

The Shaikh replied: “My dear friend and brothers, I am now no longer in control. Whatever Allah has desired for me, has come to pass. I was once amongst His beloved ones. Now He has thrown me very far away from His door. O Beloved ones of Allah, beware of being rejected and distanced from Allah. O Beloved ones of Allah, beware of Allah’s anger and being cut off from Him.”

Then turning towards the heavens he said: “O my Lord, I never expected such treatment from You.” Then he began crying bitterly and appealing to Allah.

Shaikh Shibli also begged Allah in a loud voice : “Only from you do we seek help. Upon You only do we rely. By Your grace, remove this difficulty from us! We have been overcome. Only you can save us!”

When the pigs heard our crying they began to rub their heads in the sand and began to yell so loudly that the mountains appeared to wail. Shaikh Shibli says : “I thought Qiyaamah had come.” The Shaikh continued to cry uncontrollably.

Shaikh Shibli continues: We said to him : “Shaikh, why don*t you return with us to Baghdad?” The Shaikh replied : “How can I? I have to see to the pigs, although I once saw to the hearts of men!”

I asked the Shaikh : “You were a Haafiz of Quraan and you could recite the seven modes of Qiraat. Do you remember anything of the Quraan?”

The Shaikh answered : “I have forgotten everything except two verses of the Quraan: ‘He who Allah disgraces, none can grant him honour. Allah does as He wishes.’ And, secondly, the verse, ‘He who chooses kufr (disbelief) over Imaan (faith) he has certainly gone astray.’

I asked : “You knew thirty thousand ahadith of Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. Do you still remember any?”

He answered : “Only one: ‘One who leaves his faith, kill him!’ ”

Amazed at his condition, we left the Shaikh and headed for Baghdad. However, after we had walked for three days we suddenly saw the Shaikh in front of us. He was coming out of a river, where he had just performed a bath. In a loud voice he proclaimed the shahaadah: “I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship besides Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam is His messenger.”

We could not control our joy and happiness when we saw him. He asked us for some pure clothing which he then wore. He then performed Salaah. We expressed our gratitude to Allah for returning him to us and we asked him what had happened to him.

He replied : “When you left me, I turned to Allah with my former love and affection for Him : ‘O my Protector, I am a sinner and a transgressor.’ Allah forgave me and covered me in His mercy.”

We asked him : “But, why were you put through such an intense trial?”

The Shaikh replied: “When we arrived in the village and saw the temples, synagogues and churches I thought to myself: ‘These people are nothing compared to me. I believe and worship one Allah.’ At that moment I heard a voice from within me saying: ‘This Iman that you have, is not due to your goodness in any way. If you so wish, We will show you right now.’ Immediately I felt as if something left my heart and flew away. That was my Imaan leaving me.”

Shaikh Shibli says: “We were overjoyed. Our caravan arrived in Baghdad with great joy. The Shaikh’s places of teaching and preaching were reopened. In a short while his students numbered over forty thousand. Allah again returned to him his knowledge of Quraan and Hadith and blessed him with further knowledge.” (Al-Mustatraf Fi Kulli Fann An-Mustadhraf)

Umar R.A’s character


When the peace pact was signed Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) inspected Jerusalem with the Christian leaders. These Christian leaders showed
him a Church when the time of Salaat approached. The Christian leaders requested :
“Perform your Salaat here”.

The Commander of the Believers, Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) said:
“If I perform Salaat here today the Muslims will express tomorrow that our Khaaleefa performed Salaat here. This place is yours. Your Church will become a matter of controversy”.

By bearing these subjects in mind Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) did not perform Salaat in the Church.

When the peace pact was to be signed in Jaabiya, Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) departed for Jerusalem. He had a slave with him.

The slave insisted that Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) should ride the camel and he should hold the reins and walk, as all slaves do. But Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) did not approve of this suggestion; instead he ruled that they take turns in riding the camel. Then by unique coincidence, it so happened that it was the slaves turn to ride when they approached the final stage of the journey.

The slave implored that he must not be concerned about whose turn it was at stage and he said: “I will cede my turn to you”.But Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) was not pleased with that either; and when they approached the city, where a massive crowd awaited them, the slave was riding and Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) was holding the reins. When the Christian priests witnessed this sight they exclaimed that surely such a humble person would
certainly become the “Conqueror of Jerusalem”. Thereafter they cheerfully handed over the keys of Jerusalem to him.
The text of the peace pact, which has already been mentioned was as follows:
The servant of Allaah and Commander of the Believers, Umar makes the following pact with the inhabitants of Jerusalem by the Munificence and Grace of Allaah:
1. The lives of everyone, their belongings, places of worship, Churches and crosses – which they revere – shall be protected in every manner. It will be the responsibility of the government to safeguard them.
2. They shall have the privilege to pray either inside or outside the Churches, according to their religious belief.
3. Their possessions and properties shall not be confiscated under any circumstances.
4. Their Churches shall remain as they are. No Masjid or any other building shall be built in its place. Their crosses shall not be impounded.
5. No `jizya’-land tax will be received from them until the next harvest would be available”.

Hadhrat Khalid bin Waleed (RadhiAllaahu-anhu), Amr bin al Aas (RadhiAllaahu-anhu), Mu’aawiya bin Abi Sufyaan (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) and ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin al – Auf (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) signed this pact as witnesses.

The deeds of Muslims, their exertions, their sacrifices in the way of Allaah, their integrity and fortitude. All provide us with lessons. If we study these lessons
and forget then what deficiency is it of the lesson? It is our shortcoming that we do not remember the lessons we read. Narrated below is the anecdote of
the victory of Alexander.

Hadhrat Amr bin al -‘Aas (RadhiAllaahu-anhu), who was very brilliant and courageous, was in command of the army at Alexandria. He reported on each
matter to the Khaleefa. It took rather long in conquering Alexandria so Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) wrote him a letter stating: “Perchance you have become fond of extravagance. On receiving my letter you must instantly command the army to attack and let that person be in the forefront whom I have appointed as commander. The army must attack the enemy simultaneously”.

When Umar’s (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) letter reached Hadhrat Amr (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) he commanded a ferocious attack. By the Will of Allaah, Alexandria was conquered. Amr bin al Aas (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) noted this good news, summoned a messenger and instructed him to stop at every two and three `manzils’ and communicate the glad tidings to the Commander of the Believers. The Messengers name was
Mu’aawiya.

This is not that Mu’aawiya who was Abu Sufyaan’s son, and who had a son named Yazid. This was Mu’aawiya, son of Khadeej.

When Mu’aawiya reached Madinah it was already early afternoon. He thought it best to rest and not to go to the Khaleefa straight away. After resolving thus he proceeded in the direction of Masjid-e-Nabawi.

By coincidence, Hadhrat Umar’s (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) maid-servant saw Mu’aawiya, who was riding on a camel and enveloped in dust. She inquired :”Where are you coming from?”

Mu’aaywiya replied: “From Alexandria”. The maid-servant ran and told Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) that the messenger from Alexandria had arrived. Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) replied:”Bring him here instantly”.

Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) was setting his sheet which he wore before emerging when Mu’aawiya approached him and conveyed the good news of the victory to him. Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) fell down in sajda forthwith; he then proclaimed that the people should come to the Masjid.

When the inhabitants of Madinah learnt that the messenger from Alexandria had arrived the Masjid was overflowing. Mu’aawiya (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) narrated all the events of the victory. Subsequently, Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) took him to his house.

Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) inquired: “Why did you not come to me instantly on reaching Madinah?”

Mu’aawiya replied:”I did not come pondering that as it was already early afternoon You would have been in relaxation”.
Hadhrat Umar (RadhiAllaahu-anhu) retorted : “Mu’aawiya! If I relax who will undertake the responsibility of governing.”

From those who were appointed administrators of districts and towns, and under-took the responsibility of collecting taxes, an oath was taken:
They would not wear splendid clothes;
They would not eat refined flour;
They would not ride Turkish horses;
They would not keep butlers or door-keepers;
Their doors would constantly be open to the destitute.

Occasionally, these conditions were also written in their documents of appointment and read aloud in public congregation so that the people were aware of the administrators constraints.

If any account was received stating that an administrator’s expenditure was more than his income, the issue was investigated. And if the expenditure was definitely more than the income, an explanation was demanded.
Enormous amounts were deposited in the Baitul Maal, The National Public Treasur

World Bulletin / News Desk

Kuwait’s Awqaf Ministry has said it will distribute 250,000 free copies of
the Holy Quran in different translations in Brazil during the 2014 FIFA
World Cup this summer.

The Kuwaiti daily reported that the ministry’s Quran Board, known as
Al-Qabas, will foresee the distribution of Qurans in Spanish, Portuguese,
English and French at hotels, stadiums and various other public places.

The competititon, which starts on June 12 and will run until July 13, will
host the fans of 32 international football teams, including six largely
Muslim teams: Algeria, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Iran and
Bosnia-Herzegovina.

A special guide book for Muslim visitors called Salaam Brazil has also been
printed to help them become acquainted with halal restaurants and
activities in the Latin American country with the help of the Omani
authorities.

Adverse reaction and Death after MMR Vaccine( Measles, Mumps, Rubella)


http://therefusers.com/refusers-newsroom/889/#.U3OCI_mSxOI

MB Comment: Anyone who feels pressured into taking the MMR vaccine because of the current stupendous measles epidemic (3 measles cases reported in WA State so far in 2011 – no deaths, no reported complications) might want to watch this video first. Key point: The baby developed encephalitis (brain inflammation) and was diagnosed with measles virus in the cerebrospinal fluid. That is precisely the medical textbook definition of a vaccine adverse reaction.

If you think such events seldom occur, I found 6 FDA Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) reports of rapid-onset encephalitis after MMR or MMRV vaccination so far in 2011 in Washington State (in the same period as those 3 measles cases without reported complications). There is NO FOLLOWUP for VAERS cases so we don’t know how those WA state vaccine victims turned out, but the symptoms of post-encephalitic syndrome are consistent with autism. Please watch the video linked below and then read the six VAERS reports from WA State (at the bottom of this article). You can extract the full reports by VAERS ID# at medalerts.org

Adverse reaction and Death after MMR Vaccine

When a child dies of measles the story hits the headlines. But when children die after the MMR jab, their stories are hard to find. This is the sad story of Harriet Moore told by her Mum.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Six VAERS reports of encephalitis or Guillain-Barre syndrome (paralysis) after measles vaccination, WA State, Jan-April 2011.

Note: These vaccines were mostly administered along with other vaccines, which is the ritual most patients face. This confounds direct association of adverse events with specific vaccines, which presumably is exactly the technique the CDC and pharmaceutical companies use to cover their tracks. There are no safety studies (concerning the risk of autism) done on multi-vaccine combinations – which is what most patients get.

Mufti Abu Layth … a Salafi


 

THE KUFR OF A MORON MASQUERADING AS A ‘MUFTI’

Q. A scholar, Mufti Abu Layth has published some very queer views which appear to be in conflict with the Shariah. The following are some of his views:

  • Women may travel without a Mahram
  • A woman may pluck her eyebrows
  • Women may cut their hair
  • Wearing Niqaab is not permissible
  • Wearing the trousers below the ankles is permissible, and in fact necessary.

 

Please comment on these fatwas.

 

A. This flotsam disgorged by the jaahil is not ‘fatwas’. This disgorgement of rubbish is in fact the kufr excrement of his nafs. This moron character is a perfect example of the Signs of Qiyaamah. In fact, he is a manifestation of the Truth of Rasulullah’s Nubuwwat. One of the evidences of the Truth of a Nabi is the fulfilment of his predictions. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had predicted the appearance of miniature dajjaals and jaahil ‘muftis’ of the type of this human shaitaan.

The corruption of the rubbish he utters is so conspicuous and so self-evident to even the layman that it requires no Ilmi (academic) response. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Verily, I fear for my Ummah the Aimmah who mislead.” The world today abounds with deviate juhhaal who masquerade as Ulama. About these juhhaal, Nabi-e-Kareem (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that the ignoramuses will refer to them. These juhhaal will issue ‘fatwas’ of jahaalat. They will be astray and lead others astray.

Never should such juhala be questioned on Deeni issues. In fact, looking at theirmabghoodh, mal-oon faces is also fraught with danger to one’s Imaan. They emit a terrible stench of kufr and Satanism.

THE VOTING INK

Q. When voting, a coloured ink is applied to the thumb nail. This colour remains on the nail for a few days despite washing. Will wudhu be valid?

A. If it is only ink, it does not form an impervious layer to prevent water. It should be washed thoroughly. The mark will not affect wudhu. Only if it forms an impervious layer as cutex does, will wudhu not be valid. We are not aware of the texture of the substance. If it is established that the substance remains on the nail  as a non-porous  layer, then it will not be permissible to vote because wudhu and ghusl will not be valid.

False statistics and militarized anti polio vaccination in Pakistan– an unconstitutional act


Eradicating polio: ‘No polio patients reported in Punjab this year’

Published: April 30, 2014

Health Secretary Ijaz Munir briefed the meeting about the current situation and steps taken for eradication of polio. PHOTO: FILE

LAHORE: 

Chief Secretary Naveed Akram Cheema said on Tuesday no polio cases had been reported in the province this year. He said this reflected good performance on the part of relevant departments. Cheema asked the District Coordination Officers (DCO) and Health Department officers to sustain their efforts to keep the province polio-free.

Cheema was presiding over a meeting on Tuesday to review the action plan for polio-eradication.

Health Secretary Ijaz Munir briefed the meeting about the current situation and steps taken for eradication of polio. He said this year eight polio cases had been reported in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 44 in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas and four in Sindh. He said so far no polio case had been reported in the Punjab.

Munir said additional technical support had been provided in Lahore and Rawalpindi districts.

He said line departments had been engaged to administer polio drops at permanent check posts set up at border districts. He said more than 70,000 children had been vaccinated at the permanent check posts on entering the province.

The chief secretary said all departments and officers had to continue their efforts till polio was completely eradicated. He said special attention should be paid to high risk districts.

Minister of State Saira Afzal Tarar appreciated the provincial government’s efforts towards polio eradication. She said the polio vaccine was precious and should not be wasted.

Ayesha Raza Farooq, the focal person for polio, said that although Punjab was a model province, polio eradication would require more effort.

Khawaja Salman Rafiq said Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif was committed to making the Punjab a model province with respect to the provision of health facilities and disease control. He directed the district officers to ensure the administration of polio drops to children travelling on buses and trains. He said polio teams should also administer drops in Afghan displaced people’s camps for the complete eradication of polio.

The international partners present at the meeting expressed their appreciation for the efforts of the Punjab government directed towards polio eradication

Family planning in Islam


 Question: Assalam o Alekum,

I am a muslim from Delhi, I have few queries related to family planning and
abortion in Islam. I would be grateful to you if you kindly clarify the
matter.

1. Is family planning allowed in Islam? if so, what are the conditions?
2. Is Abortion is allowed in Islam? if so, what are conditions?
3. is it allowed in Islam to provide legal safe abortion  services?

As per Indian law Abortion is allowed in following four conditions, please
suggest if these are at par with Islamic laws:

1. if mother’s life is in danger
2. If child is detected as potential disable
3. if pregnancy is a result of rape
4. if family planning methods failed and family doesn’t want the child.

 Anwser:

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful *


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

We acknowledge receipt of your enquiries and the response follows
hereunder:



   1. THE DECEPTION OF FAMILY PLANNING & BIRTH CONTROL:-



It is an unacceptable (in terms of Shar’iah) “excuse” for implementing *birth
control; Family planning is what the media generally bombards us with the

“global population explosion”. Western Media is very subtly indoctrinating
the minds of naïve people to think that if the growth of world population
is not curbed and stifled, the world could be shortly facing a food
shortage crisis.

As Muslims, we cannot ratify and accept the so-called “foregone
conclusions” and “projected forecasts” in the media that “ominously” warn
us about the world population reaching 5 billion in the next 40 years and
then increasing in leaps and bounds to reach alarming and astronomical
proportions in years to come. The reason for this is obvious to a Muslim;
it is our belief that Allah Ta’ala alone knows exactly what the future
holds for mankind at large. It does not necessarily mean that because the

world population has doubled in the last 40 years, it HAS to increase two
or three fold within the next 40 years as well. Some catastrophic event

“There is no living creature on earth but its sustenance depends entirely
upon Allah Ta’ala.” [Al-Qur’aan 11:6]

Our duty is to become law-abiding servants of Allah Ta’ala and then have
faith and trust in Him that He will create and provide enough food for all.
Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan: –

And if anyone puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is Allah for him.”
[65:23].

Islam in fact teaches us to practise the exact opposite of birth control
and family planning. In a Hadith Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)

has encouraged us to increase *our progeny: –



“Marry those women who show great affection and who are highly fertile;

for surely I shall feel honoured (on the Day of Qiyamah) due to your large

numbers.” ( Mishkaat, Pg. 267).*

An inquiring mind may raise the question that if we are going to increase
our progeny, where are we going to get the food for the extra mouths? Well,
the solution to that question has also been provided by Rasulullah
(Sallallahu alayhi wasallam): –

“Sustenance is provided for you due to the barakah (blessings) of your
innocent and weak subordinates.” [Al-Hadeeth].

In other words, the more dependants one has, the more Allah Ta’ala
increases sustenance.

As far as the Western World’s so-called “solution” of abortion is
concerned, such a callous step would be tantamount to murdering one’s own
offspring. The Qur’aan says: –

“Kill not your children for fear of want; We shall provide for them as
well as for you. Surely, killing them is a great sin.” [Al-Qur’aan, 17:31].

In a similar vein, birth control has also been likened to burying a child
alive (as was quoted earlier on from a Hadeeth of Mishkaat), because one is
basically “killing” sperm that has the potential of initiating conception
in the womb of the mother.

Hence, to resort to birth control and abortion merely due to the fear that
one will not be able to provide for the extra mouths is something that is
severely condemned and shunned by Islam.

Islam does not provide solutions in the guise of barbaric and nonsensical
theories such as unwarranted abortions and birth-control policies. Islam’s
solutions are simple and forthright and those are that we should:-

(i) Strengthen our Imaan and carry out the commandments of Allah Ta’ala,
thereby attracting His Mercies and Bounties.

(ii) Continue to increase the numbers of the Muslim Ummah.

(iii) Make the effort on our part in earning income from Halaal sources.

(iv)Place our trust in Allah Ta’ala that He will give Barakah in our
earnings and allow it to suffice for all our dependants.

(v) Utilize whatever is left over in channels of Zakaat and Lillah so as to
assist those who are less fortunate.

If we were to implement this five-point strategy, we would Insha-Allah
bring about a better world to live in and there would be little or no
starving mouths left to feed.

Allah Ta’ala says in the Holy Qur’aan:-

“He who fears Allah Ta’ala, for him He prepares a way out, and He provides
for him from sources he could never imagine.”  [65:2]

Look at the unique power of having trust in Allah Ta’ala, as extolled in
the following Hadith:-

*” Surely if you will trust Allah Ta’ala as you really ought to, then He

will provide for you in the same way as He provides for the birds who rise
and leave early in the morning with hungry stomachs but return in the

evening fully nourished and satiated.” (Mishkaat, Pg. 452).*

“These are events of the Unseen which We reveal by inspiration unto thee.”
[Al-Qur’aan, Surah Yusuf, 12:102].

Let us rather ponder over the imminent signs of Qiyaamah so that we can
prepare ourselves adequately for the Aakhirah. The Western World’s  “probing”
into the future is based merely on speculation which creates unnecessary
panic and pandemonium and causes the masses to indulge in Haraam acts such
as unwarranted birth control exercises, abortions, etc.

   1. ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE ON ABORTION:-

(Al-Mahmood by Mufti Ebrahim Desai)



Almighty Allah Ta’ala says in the Quran: “Life is from a decree of my
Lord.” (Surah 12 Verse 85). The above verse is self explanatory on the

sanctity and significance of life. Generally every decree is from Allah
Ta’ala but the honour of attribution increases its sanctity and demands its
highest level of reverence. This command is mentioned in many verses of the

Noble Quran – Allah Ta’ala says: *”Whosoever has spared the life of a soul,

it is as though he has spared the life of all people. Whosoever has killed

a soul, it is as though he has murdered all of mankind.”* (Surah 5 Verse 32)

The above should suffice to express the sanctity of the Rooh (life). The
Noble Qur’an describes the various stages of man’s primordial development
but it does not specify the exact duration of each state. In one verse of

the Noble Qur’an, Almighty Allah Ta’ala says, *”Man, We did create from a

quintessence (of clay); then We placed him as (a drop of) sperm in a place
of rest, firmly fixed; then We made the sperm into a clot of congealed
blood; then of that clot We made a (foetus) lump; then We made out of that
lump bones, and clothed the bones with flesh; then We developed out of it

another creature: So blessed be Allah, the best to create.”* (Surah 23

Verses 12 and 14)

In a Hadith related by Bukhari and Muslim, our beloved Rasulullah
(Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, “Verily the creation of each one of you
is brought together in his mother’s belly for forty days in the form of a
seed, then he is a clot of blood for a like period, then an angel is sent
to him who blows the breath of life into him…”

Based on the above references, Muslim jurists have deduced that the first
four months (120 days) of gestation is the crucial time period. After this
the foetus is regarded as being ‘alive’ and an abortion is not permissible
for any reason whatsoever; and, should an abortion be done then it would
constitute murder. Thus an abortion may be performed within the 120 days

period only if there is a valid Shar’ee reason. (Family Planning and
Abortion, by Qaadhi Mujahidul Islam, published by the IMA of South Africa)

Ta’ala says, “And do not assist in sin”. (Surah 5 Aayat 2).

The Fuqaha have explained the extent of the prohibition in assisting in
sin. If the assistance is the motivating factor and the only reason for
committing the sin, then such assistance is prohibited. For example, a
person provokes a non- Muslim by speaking evil about his idols; he in turn
speaks evil of Allah (Allah forbid). The provocation was the motivating
factor of speaking evil of Allah. Similarly, if a person deals in such
things that are used only for committing sin, for example, the sale of
musical items, then that assistance is sinful and forbidden.

If the assistance is not the motivating factor for committing the sin but
the sin is committed by an independent perpetrator, for example, a hawker
sells grapes to a person who makes wine. The hawker does not know the
intention of the consumer; neither does he make the wine himself. The
selling of grapes by the hawker will not be assisting in sin.

A Muslim health professional is duty bound to obey the laws of Shari’ah in
his profession. The role of the doctor in abortion is analogous to a person
who deals in things used only to commit sin. Therefore he cannot perform an
abortion prohibited in the Shari’ah, for example, after 120 days or even
motivate such an abortion.

   1. If the patient is determined to have an abortion prohibited in the

   Shariah, then it is not permissible for the doctor to make any referrals.
By doing so, he/she will be assisting in sin.

   1. a) If the medical personnel are not aware that the patient requires

   abortion (which is prohibited in the Shari’ah), then these services will
not be regarded as assisting in sin. If they are aware of the patient’s
intention of having a prohibited abortion in the Shari’ah, then it is not
permissible for them to offer their services in clerking such patients.

b) Writing out a prescription for an abortifacient patient drug as well as
physically handing the drug for abortion is prohibited in the Shari’ah as
that will be assisting in sin, hence not permissible.

c) To evacuate the uterus after partial abortion and treating a patient
from sepsis shock, etc. after abortion is permissible. The service of the
doctor is after the patient has committed the sin.

   1. a) If the anaesthetist is aware that the patient is undergoing an

   abortion, he or she cannot provide his or her services.

b) A Muslim anaesthetist may offer his or her service in a miscarriage even
though he or she discovers that the miscarriage is due to a premeditated
termination. According to our understanding the anesthetist will not induce
the miscarriage.

   1. It is not permissible for a Muslim pharmacist to dispense medication

   prescribed to induce an abortion prohibited in the Shari’ah since it will
be assisting in a sinful act.

   1. It is permissible for Muslim nursing staff to nurse patients during

   the pain and bleeding following the abortion.

The second part of your queries about the Indian Laws of Abortion has
already been answered in detail above.

May Allah guide all of us to the straight path, and guide us to that which
pleases Him.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best *

Groundbreaking Study: Vaccines Cause Children More Adverse Reactions Than Any Other Drug


Story at-a-glance

  • Groundbreaking new study identifies vaccines as the most common source of adverse drug reactions in children, including anaphylaxis and death
  • Study reveals adverse drug reactions are more common for boys than girls, and infants are the most susceptible age group
  • Vaccines provide only artificial, temporary, typically inferior immunity compared to what your body receives from natural exposure to a disease
  • History offers little evidence that vaccines are responsible for eradicating disease even when “herd immunity” vaccination levels have been reached
  • After vaccines are introduced, new and more virulent strains tend to emerge, suggesting the entire vaccine-immunity paradigm is fatally flawed

By Dr. Mercola

A groundbreaking new drug safety study in Shanghai, China, provides some much needed information about the frequency of vaccine drug reactions among children.

Adverse drug reactions are a serious public health concern and one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide.1 More than a half million children are treated every year for adverse drug reactions in US outpatient clinics and emergency rooms.2

The Shanghai study, based on reported pediatric adverse drug reactions (ADRs) for 2009, found that 42 percent were caused by vaccines, with reactions ranging from mild skin rashes to deadly reactions like anaphylaxis and death. Of all the drugs causing adverse reactions among children, vaccines are the most commonly reported.3, 4

This study is particularly significant because the vast majority of reports came from physicians, pharmacists, and other health care providers. Less than three percent of the reports were from consumers.

Another safety report5 about pediatric drug reactions was just published by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) and lists the top 15 drugs causing serious adverse reactions in children.

Psychiatric drugs and analgesics (especially ibuprofen) figure prominently in their top 15 list. The report also mentions psychological side effects such as aggression and suicidal ideation as frequent symptoms from 10 of the 15 most commonly reported drugs.

Drugs and Vaccines Are More Dangerous for the Very Young

Three major trends emerged in the Chinese drug reaction study:

  • Gender: Males (60 percent) were represented more than females (40 percent)
  • Age: Young children were more susceptible to harm; 65 percent of the adverse drug reactions were reported for children age 5 and under, and about 40 percent involved children aged 2 months to 2 years. The highest proportion of serious reports was for newborns (0 to 1 month). The ISMP and other researchers have confirmed that the number of adverse drug reactions is highest in the first year of life—so parents of newborns, beware!6
  • Polypharmacy“: The more drugs a child is exposed to, the higher the proportion of serious reactions; drug-to-drug interactions (DDI) are increasingly problematic with today’s practice of “polypharmacy”(using two or more drugs together)

Vaccine reactions are very difficult to detect because often, multiple vaccines are given together, with synergistic toxicities and multiple adverse interactions occurring, which makes it hard to know what is causing what. Vaccine reactions are also notoriously underreported, as many physicians brush off symptoms as mere “coincidence,” denying they have anything to do with vaccination.

The Chinese researchers made the following statement about why they believe vaccines are causing so many adverse reactions:

“The ADR rate caused by vaccines is much higher than other drugs, and this may be related to the types and number of vaccinations being used in China, as the types of routine immunization vaccines in China reach up to 15 kinds, which is much higher than seven kinds in India and Vietnam, nine kinds in Thailand and 11 kinds in America, and most of the vaccines in China are attenuated live vaccines, which may bring a greater potential safety hazard.”

High Infant Mortality and High Infant Vaccine Rates—Are They Related?

The US has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the developed world. Yet, American infants are given the greatest number of vaccines—26 doses of vaccines by the end of their first year. Can this really be a coincidence? If vaccines were doing a good job at safeguarding children’s health, the US should be enjoying extremely low infant mortality, shouldn’t it?

Acute adverse reactions that are actually reported are just the tip of the iceberg. There are many more deleterious effects when you consider post-vaccination brain inflammation (encephalitis) and encephalopathy, immune dysfunction, paralysis, and other long-term health sequelae that have been causally related to both live attenuated virus and inactivated vaccines around the world, especially the types used in developing nations. The tragic results of this are poignantly illustrated in the featured study.

If your child’s immune system is not functioning properly, he or she may be more susceptible than the average child to suffering a serious vaccine reaction. The unfortunate part is, currently there are few ways to determine in advance whether or not your child has normal immune function or has other biological, genetic, or environmental risk factors that greatly increase individual susceptibility to suffering harm from vaccinations.

This means that an adverse vaccine reaction may be your first indication your child’s immune system is vulnerable to atypical manipulation by vaccines —and sadly, in some cases, the brain or immune system damage caused by vaccination is severe and permanent. According to Dr. Kelly Brogan, one of the most fundamental problems with today’s vaccine paradigm is that vaccine safety has not been studied—much less proven: “The current schedule has never been studied – not one vaccine in a vaccinated vs. unvaccinated design, let alone multiple delivered at once, or the entire long-term effects of 49 doses of 14 vaccines by age 6.”

The Government Gives Vaccine Manufacturers a Free Pass

In 1988, Congress passed a law shielding physicians and vaccine manufacturers from vaccine injury lawsuits. Prior to this law, most doctors were much more cautious about giving vaccines to children who had a prior adverse vaccine reaction—for fear of being sued.

For example, the whole cell pertussis vaccine in the DPT shot was notorious for causing seizures, high pitched screaming, and collapse shock due to brain inflammation. Prior to 1988, pediatricians were warned not to give the DPT to children who had a history of seizures in the first 72 hours following a DPT. But now that doctors and vaccine manufacturers are protected from lawsuits, vaccine reactions are regarded as “less significant,” even “coincidental”… of course, they’re NOT insignificant when it’s your child who is having one! The vaccine manufacturers and physicians are being taken care of… but who is protecting your child?

A Fundamentally Flawed Concept of Immunity

Vaccine manufacturers would like you to believe that the “immunity” you receive from vaccines is equal to or better than what is conferred through natural exposure to the infection, but this simply isn’t the case. There are important differences between naturally acquired immunity and temporary vaccine-induced antibody production. Vaccines are never 100 percent protective because they provide only artificial, temporary, typically inferior immunity compared to what your body would receive from natural exposure to a disease.

Immunity is a complicated process with many moving parts—immunological, neurological, and endocrinological—not the dumbed down version the pharmaceutical industry feeds to the public. The common reductionist notion that immunity involves nothing more than a simple antigen-antibody response is a gross oversimplification—not to mention the arrogance that, with a vaccine, they can improve on a biological process that Nature has been perfecting for thousands or even millions of years. Take measles, for example. According to Dr. Suzanne Humphries:7

“Since most vaccines are delivered by injection, the mucous membranes are bypassed and thus blood antibodies are produced but not mucosal antibodies. Mucosal exposure is what contributes to the production of antibodies in the mammary gland. A child’s exposure to the virus while being breastfed by a naturally immune mother would lead to an asymptomatic infection that results in long-term immunity to that virus. Vaccinated mothers have lower levels of virus-specific antibodies in the serum and milk, compared to naturally immune mothers, and thus their infants are unprotected.”

Prior to the vaccine era, mothers were naturally immune to measles and passed on that immunity to their infants via placenta and breast milk. But vaccinated mothers cannot pass along vaccine-induced “immunity” because of the issue described above. As a result, infants whose mothers were born after 1963 are more susceptible to measles than are infants of older mothers. For a healthy child with normal immune function, measles is not a deadly disease—in fact, 30 percent of measles cases among the unvaccinated are missed because they are so mild.8

It should also be noted that the recently reported pertussis (whooping cough)9 and mumps outbreaks10 have occurred predominantly among the vaccinated –and measles “outbreaks”11 have also involved vaccinated persons —invalidating claims that vaccinated people cannot get sick from or transmit infectious diseases. The fact that a lot of vaccinated people still get sick is a prime example of how getting vaccinated is not a “good health” guarantee. In fact, keeping your immune system healthy through good nutrition, exercise, reduction of stress, and limiting exposure to environmental toxins is a much better strategy for staying well and also for helping you to heal more quickly if you do get sick.

The Truth About Herd Immunity

Download Interview Transcript

One of the most commonly parroted sound bites in the vaccine debate is the term “herd immunity,” tossed around by vaccine advocates who don’t really understand the concept. They suggest that if 95 percent or more of the population can be made “immune” to an infectious disease via vaccination, the disease will be eradicated or controlled. Despite these claims, there is little proof that vaccines are responsible for eradicating diseases even when “herd immunity” vaccination levels are reached. Recent outbreaks of common diseases like measles are evidence of this.

Overvaccination not only exposes people to potentially dangerous adverse reactions, but it may damage the health of the greater community. Take varicella zoster (chickenpox), for example. According to Dr. Humphries:12

“Prior to the universal varicella vaccination program, 95 percent of adults experienced natural chickenpox (usually as school aged children)—these cases were usually benign and resulted in long term immunity. This high percentage of individuals having long term immunity has been compromised by mass vaccination of children, which provides at best 70 to 90 percent immunity that is temporary and of unknown duration—shifting chickenpox to a more vulnerable adult population where chickenpox carries 20 times more risk of death and 15 times more risk of hospitalization compared to children. Add to this the adverse effects of both the chickenpox and shingles vaccines, as well as the potential for increased risk of shingles for an estimated 30 to 50 years among adults.”

A young child with active chickenpox, who comes into contact with an adult who had chickenpox as a child, is giving the adult a natural “booster” that will not cause symptoms but will strengthen the adult’s immunity to the disease. But since the introduction of the chickenpox vaccine in 1995 in the US, followed by chickenpox vaccine mandates in the states, there are fewer natural boosters for the adult population. Now, there is a shingles (herpes zoster) epidemic among adults – and Merck is the sole producer of both chickenpox and shingles vaccine in the US!

Vaccines Invite New Strains to the Party

Vaccines are having the unintended effect of creating new strains and more virulent strains of disease, in a similar way as antibiotic overuse has led to antibiotic resistance. The B. pertussis organism that causes whooping cough has evolved to evade the DPT/DtaP vaccines that have been used worldwide since the early 1950s. A mutated B. pertussis strain has emerged and is associated with severe symptoms.13

Sometimes, the pressure placed by vaccines on an organism causes non-vaccine strains to become more dominant. This is true of some of the more than 80 pneumococcal strains that are not contained in pneumococcal vaccines (Prevnar-7 and Prevnar-13), and have become prevalent since the vaccines were introduced in 2000.14 Some of these non-vaccine strains are now causing severe disease. This phenomenon is a direct result of the pressure on the organisms to adapt and survive.

The point is, even if vaccines were somehow miraculously able to eradicate all of our most dreaded infectious diseases, it’s only a matter of time before new versions will appear—and potentially with heightened virulence! Life has a way of finding a means to survive. And you will be less prepared to fight off these new invaders if your immune system is compromised, as it can be from vaccines. With that in mind, vaccination may very well be promoting infectious disease, rather than eliminating it.15

If you are thinking there MUST be a better way to stay healthy than continuously adding new vaccines, you are right! There is no complicated recipe, no extensive protocols… just good basic lifestyle choices. Eat well, sleep well, exercise effectively and consistently, manage your stress, and avoid toxic exposures whenever possible. Making a few lifestyle adjustments will allow you to build your health naturally, including your resistance to illness. And of course, we can all benefit from the support and care of a good physician!

Finding an Enlightened Physician

If you are a parent, it’s up to you to find a doctor you can trust who will avoid administering vaccines in the face of previous vaccine reactions. Don’t be afraid to stand up for your right to protect your child. There are enlightened pediatricians who take a “precautionary approach” because they care about preventing adverse reactions, injuries, and deaths. It’s your health, your family, your choice.

Search until you find a compassionate and knowledgeable health care practitioner who will work with you to make the best decisions for you and your family. If you are the parent of a newborn, be extremely careful with all drugs and use them ONLY if absolutely necessary. As you have seen, infants are the most vulnerable. If you or your child experiences an adverse reaction to a drug or vaccine, please consult your physician immediately and report it to VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, and encourage your physician to do the same.

Protect Your Right to Informed Consent and Defend Vaccine Exemptions

 

With all the uncertainty surrounding the safety and efficacy of vaccines, it’s critical to protect your right to make independent health choices and exercise voluntary informed consent to vaccination. It is urgent that everyone in America stand up and fight to protect and expand vaccine informed consent protections in state public health and employment laws. The best way to do this is to get personally involved with your state legislators and educating the leaders in your community.

THINK GLOBALLY, ACT LOCALLY.

National vaccine policy recommendations are made at the federal level but vaccine laws are made at the state level. It is at the state level where your action to protect your vaccine choice rights can have the greatest impact. It is critical for EVERYONE to get involved now in standing up for the legal right to make voluntary vaccine choices in America because those choices are being threatened by lobbyists representing drug companies, medical trade associations and public health officials, who are trying to persuade legislators to strip all vaccine exemptions from public health laws.

Signing up for NVIC’s free Advocacy Portal at www.NVICAdvocacy.org gives you immediate, easy access to your own state legislators on your Smart Phone or computer so you can make your voice heard. You will be kept up-to-date on the latest state bills threatening your vaccine choice rights and get practical, useful information to help you become an effective vaccine choice advocate in your own community. Also, when national vaccine issues come up, you will have the up-to-date information and call to action items you need at your fingertips..

So please, as your first step, sign up for the NVIC Advocacy Portal.

Share Your Story with the Media and People You Know

If you or a family member has suffered a serious vaccine reaction, injury or death, please talk about it. If we don’t share information and experiences with each other, everybody feels alone and afraid to speak up. Write a letter to the editor if you have a different perspective on a vaccine story that appears in your local newspaper. Make a call in to a radio talk show that is only presenting one side of the vaccine story.

I must be frank with you; you have to be brave because you might be strongly criticized for daring to talk about the “other side” of the vaccine story. Be prepared for it and have the courage to not back down. Only by sharing our perspective and what we know to be true about vaccination will the public conversation about vaccination open up so people are not afraid to talk about it.

We cannot allow the drug companies and medical trade associations funded by drug companies or public health officials promoting forced use of a growing list of vaccines to dominate the conversation about vaccination. The vaccine injured cannot be swept under the carpet and treated like nothing more than “statistically acceptable collateral damage” of national one-size-fits-all mandatory vaccination policies that put way too many people at risk for injury and death. We shouldn’t be treating people like guinea pigs instead of human beings.

Internet Resources Where You Can Learn More

I encourage you to visit the website of the non-profit charity, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), at www.NVIC.org:

  • NVIC Memorial for Vaccine Victims: View descriptions and photos of children and adults, who have suffered vaccine reactions, injuries and deaths. If you or your child experiences an adverse vaccine event, please consider posting and sharing your story here.
  • If You Vaccinate, Ask 8 Questions: Learn how to recognize vaccine reaction symptoms and prevent vaccine injuries.
  • Vaccine Freedom Wall: View or post descriptions of harassment and sanctions by doctors, employers, school and health officials for making independent vaccine choices.

Connect with Your Doctor or Find a New One that Will Listen and Care

If your pediatrician or doctor refuses to provide medical care to you or your child unless you agree to get vaccines you don’t want, I strongly encourage you to have the courage to find another doctor. Harassment, intimidation, and refusal of medical care is becoming the modus operandi of the medical establishment in an effort to stop the change in attitude of many parents about vaccinations after they become truly educated about health and vaccination.

However, there is hope.

At least 15 percent of young doctors recently polled admit that they’re starting to adopt a more individualized approach to vaccinations in direct response to the vaccine safety concerns of parents. It is good news that there is a growing number of smart young doctors, who prefer to work as partners with parents in making personalized vaccine decisions for children, including delaying vaccinations or giving children fewer vaccines on the same day or continuing to provide medical care for those families, who decline use of one or more vaccines.

So take the time to locate a doctor, who treats you with compassion and respect and is willing to work with you to do what is right for your child.

The Gardasil vaccine


Gardasil and the Public Flogging of Katie Couric

Story at-a-glance

  • After giving airtime to two mothers whose daughters’ health suddenly deteriorated after Gardasil shots, a smear campaign against seasoned journalist Katie Couric was unleashed
  • $3 billion in federal compensation has been awarded to vaccine victims in the US for injuries stemming from the Gardasil vaccine
  • By December 13, 2013, Gardasil had generated nearly 30,000 adverse reaction reports to the US government, including 140 deaths
  • Such adverse reaction reports are only a fraction of the numbers of Gardasil reactions, injuries, and deaths that have actually occurred, as most doctors either do not report it, or make reports directly to Merck
  • By 2006, pap tests had driven down the numbers of new cases of cervical cancer to 9,700 per year with about 3,700 deaths—hardly the kind of death toll that would warrant injecting every single woman in the country against HPV

By Barbara Loe Fisher

The public flogging of veteran broadcast journalist Katie Couric began on December 4, 2013, immediately after a 17-minute report on HPV and Gardasil vaccine was broadcast on her TV talk show “Katie.”1 It was kick-started by a west coast business writer, who administered the first lash with a bizarre take-down of freedom of the press:

“The real punch of the show was its portrayal of HPV vaccination as ‘controversial,'” he charged. “Merely to ask questions is to validate them.”

He ended with a sucker punch:

“Katie Couric established her credibility as a spokeswoman for preventive medicine more than a decade ago… now she’ll be known for promoting junk medicine instead.”2

‘Is Katie Couric the Next Jenny McCarthy?’

Then, like piranhas in a fish tank full of fresh chum, an online clique of mean girls and bully boys let Katie have it right between the eyes.

“Is Katie Couric the next Jenny McCarthy?” sneered a headline for an article in which a cub reporter sharpened her claws on Couric’s credibility by hissing, “The damage a former Playboy Bunny has been able to do is bad enough. But Couric’s misdeeds are all the worse given that she’s taken much more seriously than Jenny McCarthy.”3

Continuing with that lame theme, an entertainment writer stuck it to Katie when she suggested that:

“To some, Couric’s behavior is even more problematic than McCarthy’s, given her stature as a respected journalist and former network news anchor, as well as her previous efforts to educate the public about the fight against cancer.”4

One headline screamed “Katie Couric Hands Over Her Show to Anti-Vaccine Alarmists”5 and another one gasped “Why Is Katie Couric Promoting Vaccine Skeptics?” followed by an article written by a photojournalist sniping that “Couric needs to review her priorities.”6

Katie Couric: Presenting HPV Information and Perspective

Katie’s unforgiveable transgression? On her afternoon talk show, she gave two mothers, who had witnessed their daughters’ health suddenly deteriorate after Gardasil shots, an opportunity to speak about what happened.7, 8

She gave an international HPV infection expert,9 who participated in Gardasil vaccine clinical trial research, an opportunity to comment about the effectiveness of Gardasil vaccine and the need for all girls – whether they get vaccinated or not – to get regular pap screening.10

She gave a pediatrician an opportunity to encourage parents to vaccinate their 11-year-old boys and girls because “HPV vaccine does not seem to be any risker than any of the other vaccines we routinely use;”11, 12 and Katie gave a mother and her daughter an opportunity to enthusiastically endorse the vaccine.13

Katie Couric presented information and a range of perspectives about a current topic being discussed by millions of parents and young women in homes and doctors’ offices across the country. She did it because she is an intellectually honest journalist, a compassionate mother, and a cancer prevention pioneer.

Fourteen years ago, Katie Couric almost singlehandedly put a human face on the importance of colonoscopy screening, especially for those at high risk when she publicly witnessed about the tragedy of losing her husband and the father of her children to colon cancer.14 After a long and successful career in broadcast journalism, in 2006 she became the first woman to anchor the evening news on a major US TV network.15

An Orchestrated Campaign of Intimidation

The shaming of Katie Couric for caring and daring to ask questions about Gardasil vaccine was a well-orchestrated campaign of intimidation. It was a warning delivered to all journalists that – no matter who you are – your characterwill be assassinated if you step out of line and question the safety or effectiveness of a government recommended vaccine.

The cyber lynch mob16-22 presenting opinion as unassailable fact delighted in quoting each other and did not reserve their vitriol for Katie. Two mothers on the show were ridiculed for describing their daughters’ Gardasil vaccine reaction symptoms, which are similar to those reported by many, many others in the US and around the world.23-43

The credentialed Gardasil vaccine researcher44 on the show was attacked for stating that regular pap tests are the most reliable way of detecting and preventing cervical cancer regardless of vaccination, a position held by cancer prevention experts.45-47

Katie Couric Encourages Informed Vaccine Decision Making

Two days after the public flogging began, Katie interviewed the Assistant Surgeon General48 before authoring an article for The Huffington Post responding to the firestorm with unapologetic professionalism.49 She acknowledged her report could have spent more time putting the statistical risk of suffering a vaccine reaction into greater perspective but she defended the inclusion of mothers reporting Gardasil reactions:

“Some people say their children have suffered from a variety of medical problems after the HPV vaccination, and there have even been a few reports of death,” she said. “As a journalist, I felt that we couldn’t simply ignore these reports.”

Katie reinforced a call for regular pap screening:

“There’s been troubling research out of Australia that indicates some women are skipping their Pap tests because they have been vaccinated. That’s a terrible idea.

While the vaccine protects against some of the HPV strains that cause cervical cancers, it doesn’t protect against all of them and regular Pap smears are essential for life-saving diagnoses,” she said.

Katie concluded her statement by encouraging critical thinking and informed vaccine decision-making:

“I had my own two daughters vaccinated against HPV. I hope that other parents will look at the research and the facts, and make a reasoned decision on the HPV vaccine and what is best for their children,” she said.

‘Not Enough,’ He Says

However, Katie’s clarification prompted one bully to bring out the whip one more time. Under a headline complaining that “Katie Couric Backs Off from Her Anti-Vaccine Show But Not Enough,” he snarled:

“The video depictions of mothers and daughters in tears will stay with thousands of Couric’s loyal viewers. Her written mea culpa, not so much.”50

Perhaps he wanted her to walk across cut glass on her knees and whimper a little on camera so he could be convinced that she would be a good girl from now on and never, ever step out of line again.

Mothers Will Not Stop Witnessing

One thing is as clear today as it was 32 years ago when mothers publicly witnessed how they watched their children suffer brain inflammation or die after being injected with the old, crude, and toxic DPT vaccine.51-64 Clearly, when mothers stand up in the public square today and describe how Gardasil vaccine risks for their daughters turned out to be 100 percent, deniers of vaccine risks get really, really emotional. They get angry and defensive. They gather together in a pack, take out the rope, and start cyber-lynching.

Mothers around the world, who give birth to babies they are responsible for nurturing through infancy and childhood, are not going to stop talking about what happened to their children after vaccination. Mothers are not going to shut up and sit down like good little girls after they witness the bodies and brains of the children they love be destroyed when Gardasil shots go wrong.

Mothers Will Not Stop Thinking Critically

They are not going to stop reading the medical literature and thinking critically about the science65-71 used to justify giving every child the most expensive federally recommended pediatric vaccine on the US market72 to prevent an infection that is cleared bymore than 90 percent of people without a problem:73,74

  • A vaccine developed by NIH researchers75 using GMO technology that was sold by NIH to Merck76 and fast-tracked to licensure using questionable surrogate markers for efficacy77, 78
  • A vaccine for a sexually transmitted disease that was tested in fewer than 1,200 children under the age of 1679 using a bioactive aluminum “placebo” as a bogus control in clinical trials80-84
  • A vaccine that was only tested in 1,000 adolescent girls and boys in combination with the federally recommended Tdap and meningococcal vaccines85
  • A vaccine given by pediatricians shielded from legal accountability for vaccine injuries and deaths, just like vaccine manufacturers are shielded from civil liability in US courts86
  • A vaccine that by December 13, 2013 had generated nearly 30,000 adverse reaction reports to the US government, including 140 deaths87 – which is only a fraction of the numbers of Gardasil reactions, injuries, and deaths that have actually occurred because most doctors either do not report to the government or make reports directly to Merck.88-90

Federal Awards, Lawsuits, Gardasil Recommendation Withdrawal

Yes, it is illogical to assume that every single one of the reported Gardasil reaction reports and deaths are caused by the vaccine, but it is just as illogical to assume that none of them are caused by the vaccine. But logic has nothing to do with one-size-fits-all vaccine policies that sacrifice individuals, who are biologically or environmentally at high risk for suffering vaccine harm,91 while no research is being done to identify who they are to spare their lives.

Informed mothers know that among the $3 billion in federal compensation that has been awarded to vaccine victims in the US are awards for Gardasil vaccine injuries.92 They know Gardasil vaccine injured girls are suing vaccine manufacturers in France, where citizens can still file product liability lawsuits.93 They know that public health officials in Japan no longer recommend Gardasil vaccine because Japan’s government is not writing off every death and case of brain inflammation and autoimmunity following Gardasil shots as just a “coincidence.”94

HPV Vaccination Made a Top Public Health Priority in US

In what may or may not be a coincidence, at the end of December, the Centers for Disease Control made HPV vaccination one of the top five “public health priorities” for 2014. In one media article,95 the HPV vaccination rate of 30 percent in the US was compared to the 85 percent vaccination rate in Rwanda, an impoverished, war-torn country where women have been dying in great numbers from cervical cancer because there has been no routine pap screening available to them. In 2011, Merck created a school-based vaccination program for all sixth graders in Rwanda to be injected with three doses of Gardasil vaccine.96

But the United States is not Rwanda. In America, cervical cancer has declined more than 70 percent after pap screening became a routine part of women’s health care in the 1960s and, by 2006, pap tests had driven down the numbers of new cases of cervical cancer to 9,700 per year with about 3,700 deaths97 in a US population of more than 300 million people. In the US, the 14,000 annual deaths from six cancers associated with HPV98-104 represent less than three percent of the more than 550,000 cancer deaths that occur every year.

Many Other Public Health Emergencies in US Deserve Priority Status

There are many public health emergencies in our country that cause far more deaths and disabilities but do not receive a fair share of the hundreds of billions of dollars appropriated by Congress to health agencies every year.105 For example:

  • Between 210,000 and 440,000 hospitalized patients each year suffer some type of preventable harm that contributes to their death106
  • The US has the worst infant mortality107 and maternal mortality108,109 rates of all developed nations, with 28,000 babies dying before their first birthday110
  • Millions of children are becoming disabled or dying in the unexplained chronic illness epidemic111 that costs trillions of dollars to treat: one child in six in America is learning disabled;112 one in nine suffers from asthma;113 one in 10 has ADHD;114 1 in 50 develops autism115 and 1 in 450 becomes diabetic.116
  • Millions more are suffering from mental health problems. One adolescent in five in the US experiences significant symptoms of emotional distress, and one in 10 is emotionally impaired.117

Bigger Market for Merck and HPV Vaccine Mandates?

Perhaps the CDC is simply boosting the congressionally approved, lucrative public-private partnership with Big Pharma118-124 by securing a bigger market for Merck’s new 9-strain version of Gardasil scheduled to be licensed in the fall of 2014.125 Or perhaps the Merck-Government-Medical Trade lobby is planning another multi-state roll-out of HPV vaccine mandates for all sixth grade children in the US just like they did in 2007.126-128

Roll Up Your Sleeve – No Questions Asked

Whatever the reasons that government officials made HPV vaccination a top public health priority in the US, the cyber-lynching of Katie Couric and mothers reporting Gardasil vaccine reactions is a warning to parents everywhere. Do not forget that the cruel, dogmatic position of vaccine risk denialism is: roll up your sleeve – no questions asked – and “may the odds be ever in your favor.”129, 130

17 Children Die After Receiving Hepatitis B Vaccine


Story at-a-glance

  • Over a period of two months, eight infants in China died within hours, and in some cases minutes, of receiving hepatitis B vaccines
  • Nine other deaths among Chinese children aged 5 and younger were also recently reported following hepatitis B vaccination
  • Six of the deaths occurred in infants who had received the vaccine made by Shenzhen Kangtai Biological Products, while two occurred after hepatitis B vaccine produced by drug maker Beijing Tiantan Biological Products
  • Health authorities in China have since launched an investigation and have suspended the use of millions of doses of hepatitis B vaccine made by Shenzhen Kangtai
  • Serious questions regarding effectiveness, low transmission rates among babies and the steep risk of side effects make the hepatitis B vaccine’s use very hard to justify for healthy newborns
  • By Dr. Mercola

    If you’re a parent-to-be or are planning to have children in the future, one of the first decisions you’ll need to make is whether or not to give your child the hepatitis B vaccine.

    Even if you consider yourself to be in favor of vaccinations and the current US vaccine schedule, this is one vaccine that deserves special consideration. In fact, the hepatitis B vaccine for newborns and young children is the least justifiable of any vaccine I can think of…

    Hepatitis B is only transmitted via contaminated needles, blood transfusion, or contact with contaminated blood and/or body fluids. If the mother is negative, there’s very little risk of a baby contracting this disease, and the vaccine’s effectiveness is highly questionable, anyway.

    Further, serious side effects and even deaths have also been reported following receipt of this vaccine, including eight recent newborn deaths in China. Over a period of two months, eight infants in China died within hours, and in some cases minutes, of receiving hepatitis B vaccines. In all, 17 deaths among Chinese children aged 5 and younger have been reported following hepatitis B vaccines administered in late 2013.

    China Investigates Makers of Hepatitis B Vaccine After Baby Deaths

    Six of the deaths occurred in infants who had received the vaccine made by Shenzhen Kangtai Biological Products, while two occurred after hepatitis B vaccine produced by drug maker Beijing Tiantan Biological Products (shares of this company plunged by up to 10 percent following media reports of the deaths).

    Health authorities in China have since launched an investigation and have suspended the use of millions of doses of hepatitis B vaccine made by Shenzhen Kangtai. So far the drug companies have denied that their products played a role in the deaths, and Chinese health authorities have also said that nine of the 17 deaths were unrelated to the vaccine.

    According to China’s National Health and Family Planning Commission, those deaths were due to acute pneumonia, suffocation, kidney failure, severe diarrhea, death of intestinal tissue, sudden infant death, congenital heart disease and other causes.1

    As for the remaining eight deaths, Chinese authorities have also said that a preliminary investigation has found no link between the deaths and the vaccines. However, firm conclusions have yet to be reached, pending the results of autopsies to confirm the causes of death.

    Victim’s Father Speaks Out, Calls Official Report “Absolute Rubbish”

    In a report by Radio Free Asia,2 the father of one of the 17 children who died after receiving a hepatitis B vaccine called Chinese health officials’ claims that the deaths had nothing to do with the vaccine “absolute rubbish.”

    Many others commenting on social media also expressed doubts about the government’s analysis and conclusions, especially in light of a series of product safety and health scandals in recent years. Often, those who dare to speak out are persecuted or punished for questioning the status quo.

    Radio Free Asia reported:3

    China’s pharmaceutical industry is highly lucrative but poorly regulated, resulting in a string of fatalities blamed on counterfeit or shoddy medications in recent years.

    An investigative report in the China Economic Observer newspaper in 2010 said that improperly stored vaccines administered by Shanxi health officials for encephalitis, hepatitis B, and rabies between 2006 and 2008 had killed four children and sickened more than 70 others, with tainted vaccines being used as late as March 2009.

    Top investigative reporter Wang Keqin, who exposed the vaccine scandal among others, was forced out of his job at the newspaper in February 2013.

    Parents who complain about mishaps linked to health and safety issues say they are frequently themselves targeted for official harassment and punishment.

    In 2011, authorities in Beijing sentenced parent activist Yang Yukui to five months’ “re-education through labor” on charges of “provoking disputes and causing trouble” after he complained that his son had been in and out of the hospital since being given a bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) tuberculosis vaccination shortly after birth.”

     a Coincidence?

    Unfortunately, it’s not at all unusual for a vaccine maker to rule a child’s death shortly after vaccination as a “coincidence.” In the US, when babies die after hepatitis B vaccinations, most of the time their deaths are automatically attributed to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) — without investigation into whether the vaccine caused the baby’s sudden death.

    One of the most famous cases of hepatitis B vaccine was Michael Belkin’s daughter who died in his arms 15 hours after receiving the absolutely unnecessary hepatitis B vaccine. Below is his testimony to Congress in 1999.

     

    When a baby’s death is listed as “SIDS,” rarely does anyone ask about the deceased infant’s vaccination history to find out whether there were symptoms of vaccine reactions before death, even though the biomedical literature has repeatedly signaled this connection.4

    In China, the deaths occurred so close to vaccination, and in so many infants, that a potential connection could not be ignored. But even in the US, deaths following hepatitis B vaccine are far from unheard of. According to the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC):5

    “…hepatitis B vaccine-related adverse events reported to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) [include] reports of headache, irritability, extreme fatigue, brain inflammation, convulsions, rheumatoid arthritis, optic neuritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) and neuropathy.

    There have been more than 1,500 hepatitis B vaccine-related deaths reported, including deaths classified as sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).”

    Shenzhen Kangtai has posted a statement suggesting that the deaths may be related to an underlying disease, noting that “coincidental diseases… are the easiest to misinterpret.”6 But Dr. Zeng Guang, chief epidemiologist with the China Center for Disease Control and Prevention, warned against taking the drug maker’s conclusion as fact, stating:7

    “We should not treat the company’s statement like a conclusion… They may be trying to protect their self-interest. Or they may have a lot of confidence in their product.”

    Merck’s Role in Building China’s Largest Hepatitis B Vaccine Maker

    It’s interesting to note that US pharmaceutical giant Merck actually helped the Chinese build Shenzhen Kangtai in the 1990s. Merck also granted the company the biological technology to produce a hepatitis B vaccine royalty free in what the New York Times described as an “unusual joint venture aimed at improving health standards in China.”8

    The company has since become China’s biggest producer of hepatitis B vaccines, where it holds 60 percent market share. A new $140-million research and development and drug manufacturing facility is also in the works…The infant deaths come on the heels of Chinese vows to tighten up food and drug safety and crack down on violators. The country has faced a slew of scandals in recent years, yet this hasn’t stopped to US from eyeing it as a key contender for future business. As Fierce Pharma reported:9

    China is a key emerging market for Big Pharma, which sees great opportunity there. One example is French drugmaker Sanofi, whose vaccine unit Sanofi Pasteur got approval in October to begin manufacturing influenza vaccines at a new plant in Shenzhen. But China has struggled to keep up with oversight on health and food issues.

    Five years ago, tainted Chinese heparin killed dozens of dialysis patients in the U.S., which made the FDA realize it needed to keep a closer look on production there. The FDA is currently investigating Chinese-made pet treats that have killed hundreds of dogs in the U.S. To get in a better position to deal with China’s growing place in the U.S. drug supply chain, the FDA is significantly adding to its own presence in China, planning to station another 10 drug inspectors and 9 food inspectors there over the next year.”

    The ‘Worst Case of Research Fraud’ in Decades

    In related vaccine news, Dong-Pyou Han, assistant professor of biomedical sciences at Iowa State University, recently resigned after faking AIDS vaccine test results. The researcher apparently added human blood that contained HIV antibodies to rabbit blood to skew the results. The human HIV antibodies in the rabbit blood made it appear as though the experimental AIDS vaccine was working and prompting the animals to build defenses against HIV.

    Not only were the results presented at scientific meetings over a period of several years, but the findings were instrumental in helping the research team gain $19 million in federal grants ($10 million of which was awarded after the fraudulent results were reported). James Bradac, who is involved with AIDS vaccine grants for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), called the case “the worst case of research fraud” in his 24 years at NIH.10 It just goes to show you, again, that even scientific “truths” can be falsified, and even work from widely respected university researchers must be closely examined and supported before being accepted as fact…

    Serious Questions Remain About Hepatitis B Vaccine Effectiveness

    Another issue to consider if you are weighing the benefits and risks of giving your newborn infant or young child hepatitis B vaccine is that vaccine acquired immunity often does not persist until a child reaches his or her teenage years – the time when acquiring a hepatitis B infection may be more likely. Research shows that by that time, the protection from the childhood vaccine may have long since waned.11

    Further, a recent study found that hepatitis B vaccine was not effective in preventing asymptomatic occult (hidden) HBV (hepatitis B virus) infection in babies, which may occur in up to 40 percent of babies born to hepatitis-B-positive mothers.12 Except in the case of a hepatitis-B-positive mother, the medical justification for vaccinating infants against hepatitis B simply doesn’t exist. In addition, the result of this above-mentioned study even refutes the commonly held assumption that hepatitis B vaccine is effective in preventing mother-to-infant transmission of all forms of hepatitis B.

    The serious questions regarding effectiveness, coupled with the low transmission rates among babies and the steep risk of side effects, makes this vaccine’s use very hard to justify for healthy newborns.

    Is Hepatitis B Vaccine Even Effective in Newborns?

    Vaccine-derived immunity is thought to be short lived. Between 30-50% of vaccinated individuals lose their antibodies within 7 years. Up to 60% of persons who initially respond will lose detectable antibodies within 12 years. So that means that these vaccines will provide little to no protection to the real risks of acquiring hepatitis B, promiscuous sexual behavior, and IV drug abuse.

    How Many Children Are Reportedly Hurt by Hepatitis B Vaccine?

    Hepatitis B is a rare, mainly blood-transmitted disease. In 1996, only 54 cases of the disease were reported to the CDC in the 0-1 age group. There were 3.9 million births that year, so the observed incidence of hepatitis B in the 0-1 age group was just 0.001%. In the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), there were 1,080 total reports of adverse reactions from hepatitis B vaccine in 1996 in the 0-1 age group, with 47 deaths reported.

    Let us put this in simpler terms. For every child with hepatitis B, there were 20 that were reported to have severe complications. Let us also remember that only 10% of the reactions are ever reported to VAERS, so this means: traditional medicine is potentially harming 200 children to protect one from hepatitis B.

    How Serious Is a Hepatitis B Infection?

    The numbers speak for themselves. Approximately 50% of patients who contract hepatitis B develop no symptoms after exposure. However, the exposure ensures that they will have lifetime immunity. An additional 30% develop only flu-like symptoms, and again, this group will acquire lifetime immunity. The remaining 20% exposed to hepatitis B will develop the symptoms of the disease. 95% of this 20% will fully recover, with lifetime immunity.

    Therefore, less than 5% of people who contract hepatitis B will become chronic carriers of the infection. The numbers get even smaller: of that 5%, nearly 75% (or 3.75% of the total exposed) will live with an asymptomatic infection and only 25% (or only 1.25% of the total number of people exposed) will develop chronic liver disease or liver cancer, 10-30 years after the acute infection. (Hyams, K.C. (1995) Risks of chronicity following acute hepatitis B virus infection: A review. Clin. Infect. Dis. 20, 992-1000.)

    Think of that in terms of probability: the possibility of contracting the disease is exceedingly difficult for children, and only 1.25% of those that are exposed will actually develop the most serious complication! This type of a “protecting the needle in the haystack” medicine is absurd at best, deadly at worst.

    How Many Safety Studies Have Been Done On Hepatitis B Vaccine?

    None. A manufacturer’s representative was asked in a 1997 Illinois Board of Health hearing to show evidence that the hepatitis B vaccine is safe for a 1-day old infant. The representative stated: “We have none. Our studies were done on 5- and 10-year-olds.” — The Congressional Quarterly, August 25, 2000, pg. 647

    One would think that these would be mandatory, but they are not. All that is required is to show efficacy, (i.e. that the vaccine stimulates an antibody response after it is give), not safety. In most other industries, the fraud represented here would lead to criminal charges.

    Hepatitis B Vaccine: It’s Your Choice

    Since 1991, a series of three hepatitis B shots has been part of the standard federally recommended US childhood vaccination schedule, with the first dose given within the first 12 hours after birth, the second dose given between one and two months of age, and the third dose given between six and 18 months of age. But while it’s part of the federal vaccine schedule, it’s your choicewhether or not to allow your baby to be vaccinated.

    If you’re expecting, the time to research the risks versus the benefits of this vaccination is now, before you deliver, so if you conclude, like many concerned health care professionals and educated parents have, that subjecting all healthy newborns to hepatitis B vaccination within hours of birth is both risky and unnecessary, you can do something to stop it…

    If you decide the hepatitis B vaccine is not appropriate for your baby, you can amend the “consent for medical treatment” forms you sign upon entering the hospital before giving birth by writing on the form that you do not give consent for your baby’s hepatitis B vaccination in the newborn nursery. You should let any nurses or other medical staff taking care of you and your baby know this directly as well.

    However, there are reports that some newborns are being vaccinated in the newborn nursery against the parent’s wishes. So it is a good idea to keep your newborn with you at all times or have a family member stay with the baby while in the hospital.

    That said, it is important to be tested for hepatitis B if you’re pregnant, as it’s possible to have a chronic infection with no symptoms and not know it. If you are pregnant and are a carrier for the hepatitis B virus, your baby could be at risk for being infected during childbirth.

    And although hepatitis B vaccines may be “mandated” for your child to attend school or daycare, most states offer different legal vaccine exemptions (medical, religious, and philosophical). On NVIC.org, you can research your state’s specific vaccine laws and requirements and find out what kind of exemption to hepatitis B vaccination you are allowed to exercise in your state for your child to attend daycare or school. You can also sign up to be a user of NVIC’s free online communications network, the NVIC Advocacy Portal, and take action to protect the legal right to make voluntary vaccine choices in your state.

    Protect Your Right to Informed Consent and Defend Vaccine Exemptions

     

    With all the uncertainty surrounding the safety and efficacy of vaccines, it’s critical to protect your right to make independent health choices and exercise voluntary informed consent to vaccination. It is urgent that everyone in America stand up and fight to protect and expand vaccine informed consent protections in state public health and employment laws. The best way to do this is to get personally involved with your state legislators and educating the leaders in your community.

    THINK GLOBALLY, ACT LOCALLY.

    National vaccine policy recommendations are made at the federal level but vaccine laws are made at the state level. It is at the state level where your action to protect your vaccine choice rights can have the greatest impact. It is critical for EVERYONE to get involved now in standing up for the legal right to make voluntary vaccine choices in America because those choices are being threatened by lobbyists representing drug companies, medical trade associations and public health officials, who are trying to persuade legislators to strip all vaccine exemptions from public health laws.

    Signing up for NVIC’s free Advocacy Portal at www.NVICAdvocacy.org gives you immediate, easy access to your own state legislators on your Smart Phone or computer so you can make your voice heard. You will be kept up-to-date on the latest state bills threatening your vaccine choice rights and get practical, useful information to help you become an effective vaccine choice advocate in your own community. Also, when national vaccine issues come up, you will have the up-to-date information and call to action items you need at your fingertips..

    So please, as your first step, sign up for the NVIC Advocacy Portal.

    Share Your Story with the Media and People You Know

    If you or a family member has suffered a serious vaccine reaction, injury or death, please talk about it. If we don’t share information and experiences with each other, everybody feels alone and afraid to speak up. Write a letter to the editor if you have a different perspective on a vaccine story that appears in your local newspaper. Make a call in to a radio talk show that is only presenting one side of the vaccine story.

    I must be frank with you; you have to be brave because you might be strongly criticized for daring to talk about the “other side” of the vaccine story. Be prepared for it and have the courage to not back down. Only by sharing our perspective and what we know to be true about vaccination will the public conversation about vaccination open up so people are not afraid to talk about it.

    We cannot allow the drug companies and medical trade associations funded by drug companies or public health officials promoting forced use of a growing list of vaccines to dominate the conversation about vaccination. The vaccine injured cannot be swept under the carpet and treated like nothing more than “statistically acceptable collateral damage” of national one-size-fits-all mandatory vaccination policies that put way too many people at risk for injury and death. We shouldn’t be treating people like guinea pigs instead of human beings.

    Internet Resources Where You Can Learn More

    I encourage you to visit the website of the non-profit charity, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), at www.NVIC.org:

    • NVIC Memorial for Vaccine Victims: View descriptions and photos of children and adults, who have suffered vaccine reactions, injuries and deaths. If you or your child experiences an adverse vaccine event, please consider posting and sharing your story here.
    • If You Vaccinate, Ask 8 Questions: Learn how to recognize vaccine reaction symptoms and prevent vaccine injuries.
    • Vaccine Freedom Wall: View or post descriptions of harassment and sanctions by doctors, employers, school and health officials for making independent vaccine choices.

    Connect with Your Doctor or Find a New One that Will Listen and Care

    If your pediatrician or doctor refuses to provide medical care to you or your child unless you agree to get vaccines you don’t want, I strongly encourage you to have the courage to find another doctor. Harassment, intimidation, and refusal of medical care is becoming the modus operandi of the medical establishment in an effort to stop the change in attitude of many parents about vaccinations after they become truly educated about health and vaccination.

    However, there is hope.

    At least 15 percent of young doctors recently polled admit that they’re starting to adopt a more individualized approach to vaccinations in direct response to the vaccine safety concerns of parents. It is good news that there is a growing number of smart young doctors, who prefer to work as partners with parents in making personalized vaccine decisions for children, including delaying vaccinations or giving children fewer vaccines on the same day or continuing to provide medical care for those families, who decline use of one or more vaccines.

    So take the time to locate a doctor, who treats you with compassion and respect and is willing to work with you to do what is right for your child.

Should Parents Be Allowed to Decide About Vaccines?


Story at-a-glance

  • Thirteen percent of parents are now using an alternative vaccination schedule, and two percent refuse all vaccines for their children. Still, 28 percent of parents following the childhood vaccination schedule think it would be safer to delay the use of vaccines.
  • In German children, 11 percent of those vaccinated reported having ear infections, compared to less than 0.5 percent of unvaccinated children. Similarly, sinusitis was reported in over 32 percent of vaccinated children, while the prevalence in unvaccinated children was less than one percent.
  • There are important, basic differences between naturally-acquired immunity and temporary vaccine-induced antibody production. As a parent, you need to educate yourself on each individual disease and corresponding vaccine in order to make an informed decision about the risks and benefits of the choices you make.
  • An important vaccine safety review was issued by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in August. According to this review of over 1,000 independent studies on vaccines, they were unable to determine whether or not vaccines are a causative factor in over 100 serious adverse health outcomes. In short: the research available is insufficient and cannot be used to confirm nor deny causation for many poor health outcomes and vaccinations

By Dr. Mercola

USA Today1 recently ran an editorial under the headline, “Vaccine opt-outs put public health at risk” and called for elimination of personal belief exemptions in state public health laws, including those that require children to get dozens of doses of up to 15 vaccines in order to attend daycare and school.

“When vaccination rates are very high, as they still are in the nation as a whole, everyone is protected. Diseases such as polio, smallpox and measles are wiped out,” the editorial claims.

“This ‘herd immunity’ protects the most vulnerable, including those who can’t be vaccinated for medical reasons, infants too young to get vaccinated and people on whom the vaccine doesn’t work.

But herd immunity works only when nearly the whole herd joins in. When some refuse vaccinations and seek a free ride, immunity breaks down and everyone is more vulnerable.”

Not Sharing the Risks of Vaccination = Selfish?

The editorial goes on to claim that outbreaks of infectious diseases such as measles are due to the “selfish decisions” of a few, who take vaccine exemptions and place everyone else in the “herd” at risk.

The answer, the editorial board says, is to eliminate personal belief vaccine exemptions from state public health laws and presumably force all children and adults to get every government recommended vaccine. The article finishes off with the curious statement:

“Everyone enjoys the life-saving benefits vaccines provide, but they’ll exist only as long as everyone shares in the risks.” [Emphasis mine]

I call it curious, because nowhere in the editorial did they actually address the issue of health risks associated with vaccines, which is one of the primary reasons for having personal choice in the first place. If safety and effectiveness of the product could be guaranteed, fewer people would have major objections.

Also noteworthy is the editorial board’s statement that herd immunity protects “people on whom the vaccine doesn’t work.” Right there, they admit that vaccination isn’t a foolproof disease prevention strategy. Vaccines can and often do fail to prevent disease.

What USA Today Didn’t Tell You

What they don’t spell out clearly is that the risk of vaccine failure must be weighed in along with the potential risk of harm from the vaccine. That inconvenient truth is cleverly hidden amid inflammatory rhetoric designed to get people to rally against those pesky free-thinkers who have the audacity to do their own risk-benefit analysis.

While the USA Today editorial board admits that there are health risks associated with vaccines and vaccines don’t always work, they still insist that people should not be free to make their own choices when it comes to vaccination. Why?

Apparently, their reasoning goes like this: the only way to have any hope of success in eradicating disease is by forcing everyone to blindly accept the known and potential unknown risks of vaccination.

And since there are risks – even though the newspaper’s editors only acknowledge risk briefly in their OpEd – the only way they say mass vaccination policies are “fair” is by mandatorily distributing the risk across the entire population.

The simpler argument is that it is done for “The Greater Good” and opting out is therefore proclaimed to be “selfish,” which is an old utilitarian rationale that can be challenged on ethical grounds.

Sadly their reasoning is irrational. For starters, the premises of vaccine-induced immunity and herd immunity are both fundamentally flawed, and the medical literature is full of scientific evidence of this—none of which is ever mentioned in newspaper OpEds designed to make you fear and intensely dislike anyone who wants to make well informed, independent vaccine choices for themsleves and their children.

The theory of vaccine-acquired herd immunity, which is regularly used as a justification for forced vaccination, is based on the premise that it will work the same way naturally-acquired herd immunity works. The only problem is that itdoesn’t. For a refresher on herd immunity, and the differences between vaccine-induced and naturally-acquired immunity, please refer to my previous article “Expert Pediatrician Exposes Vaccine Myths.”

Leave Parents Free to Choose Vaccines

Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the non-profit National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) wrote an editorial opposing USA Today’s call for an end to personal belief vaccine exemptions in state laws. She noted that US health officials now recommend twice as many vaccines compared to three decades ago.

If you follow the recommended vaccine schedule, your child will receive no less than 69 doses of 16 vaccines. Up to 15 of those vaccines are mandated by different states. Yet despite this cornucopia of “preventive medicine,” American children are among the sickest in the developed world.

“With 95 percent of US kindergarteners fully vaccinated and one child in six learning disabled, one in 10 asthmatic and one in 50 living with autism, educated parents and health care professionals are asking legitimate questions about why so many highly vaccinated children are so sick,”Fisher writes.

“They’re examining vaccine science shortfalls and wondering why Americans are coerced and punished for declining to use every government-recommended vaccine while citizens in Canada, Japan and the European Union are free to make choices.

Vaccines carry two risks: a risk of harm and a risk of failure to prevent disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention admit that US pertussis outbreaks are not due to a failure to vaccinate but failure of the vaccine to confer long-lasting immunity…

When doctors cannot predict who will be harmed by a vaccine and cannot guarantee that those who have been vaccinated won’t get infected or transmit infection, the ethical principle of informed consent becomes a civil, human and parental right that must be safeguarded in US law. Non-medical vaccine exemptions immunize individuals and the community against unsafe, ineffective vaccines and tyranny.”

Fortunately, judging by the newspaper’s reader polls, few Americans agree with the USA Today editorial board. In fact, 82 percent of readers (as of this writing) “strongly disagree” with the editorial. In contrast, 85 percent of readers “strongly agree” with Fisher’s “pro-vaccine choice” rebuttal. Clearly, most Americans who took the time to cast their vote expressed strong opposition to the newspaper’s “anti-choice” stance and were not fooled by the same old emotion-based propaganda. And that’s good news.

Is Mass Vaccination Causing Unforeseen Consequences?

When it comes to vaccination, there are a lot of unanswered questions. Some of these questions include:

  • Could injecting up to 69 doses of various vaccines into a child beginning on the day of birth and throughout childhood create immune system problems over the long term?
  • What are the multi-generational effects of forcing our immune systems to react to vaccines rather than naturally-occurring pathogens? One recent study2 found that women who received the Tdap vaccine during pregnancy had children whose immune responses to vaccination was far weaker compared to children whose mothers were not vaccinated.

Animals that are not yet weaned are typically not vaccinated as the mother’s milk is known to interfere with antibody responses to vaccines. Many animals are titered to ensure they don’t receive excessive vaccines, as the side effects are well known. As explained by veterinarian Dr. Jean Dodd:3

“A titer test is a simple blood test that measures a dog or cat’s antibodies to vaccine viruses (or other infectious agents). For instance, your dog may be more resistant to a virus whereas your neighbor’s dog may be more prone to it. Titers accurately assess protection to the so-called ‘core’ diseases (distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis in dogs, and panleukopenia in cats), enabling veterinarians to judge whether a booster vaccination is necessary. “

So, we’re titering animals but not children? There are plenty of reasons not to accept a mandated one-size-fits-all vaccination policy: the right to self determination being first and foremost. The decision to participate in a medical intervention or experiment that carries serious risks, whether the risk is high or low, should belong to each individual person, including parents of minor children who are legally and morally responsible for protecting their children.

The Case for Reasonable Doubt

What is some of the evidence raising reasonable doubt about the “reasonableness” of forced vaccinations? How about the following:

  • Environmental toxins can reduce vaccine efficacy. Research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) suggests that exposure to perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) prior to, and after birth, can significantly weaken the effectiveness of vaccines. PFCs are found in countless products, including non-stick cookware and food wrappings, personal care, and cleaning products, just to name a few. If poorly regulated environmental pollutants can dramatically decrease vaccine effectiveness, then that means your risk-to-benefit ratio of vaccination is automatically skewed toward higher risk and lower benefit. As reported by ABC News:4

“The study found that higher levels of PFCs in both mothers and children meant lower numbers of disease-fighting antibodies in the children. Mothers who had twice the level of PFC in their blood had children with a 40 percent decrease in the number of antibodies formed after getting the diphtheria vaccine. The 7-year-old children who had doubled PFC levels had nearly a 50 percent reduction in their antibody levels.”

  • Vaccinated people are asymptomatic carriers of disease, and can still both spread and contract the disease. Mounting evidence shows that vaccinated people can actually unknowingly be infected with and spread diseases like pertussis (whooping cough) for which they were vaccinated. This was shown in an FDA baboon study5 last year, which concluded that while the pertussis vaccine can cut down on serious clinical disease symptoms, it does not eliminatetransmission of the disease. As noted by the lead author of the research, when the baby baboons were newly vaccinated with either DPT or DTaP vaccines, they were asymptomatic carriers of pertussis and could infect others in their community.

Needless to say, if vaccinated people can be asymptomatic carriers of disease, this can place everyone at risk and really raises questions about the wisdom of vaccinating health care workers before permitting them to work with high-risk populations. Vaccinated people can still contract the disease because (a) most vaccine-acquired artificial immunity istemporary,6 and (b) because microbes can evolve to evade the vaccines.

For example, 97 percent of those who contracted mumps during the outbreak in Ohio earlier this year were fully vaccinated7against the disease. Some are quick to say that “sure, vaccinated people can contract the disease—if exposed; which is why no one should be allowed to opt out of vaccination.” However, when a vaccinated person can contract the disease from another vaccinated person… this entire argument clearly falls apart.

  • Flu vaccination raises your risk of contracting more serious flu illness. Research published in 2012 showed that theflu vaccine increases your risk of contracting more serious pandemic flu illness,8 such as H1N1. This supported previous findings, such as that from a 2011 study,9 which found that the seasonal flu vaccine actually weakened children’s immune systems, thereby increasing their chances of getting sick from influenza viruses not included in the vaccine. Unvaccinated children actually built up more antibodies against a wider variety of influenza virus strains than the vaccinated children.
  • Vaccines promote disease mutations. Vaccines have also been found to place pressure on microbes to developmutated versions of the disease, and/or enhance the ability of other similar strains to become more dominant and cause disease. For example, a veterinary vaccine study10 at the University of Melbourne (Australia) found that using two different vaccine viruses to combat the same disease in an animal population quite rapidly caused the viruses to combine (referred to as recombination), creating brand new and more virulent viruses.

In Australia, dangerous new strains of whooping cough bacteria were reported in March 2012.11 The vaccine, researchers said, was responsible. The reason for this is because while whooping cough is primarily attributed to Bordetella pertussisinfection, it is also caused by another closely related pathogen called B. parapertussis, which the vaccine does NOT protect against.

Two years earlier, scientists at Penn State had already reported that the pertussis vaccine significantly enhanced the colonization of B. parapertussis, thereby promoting vaccine-resistant whooping cough outbreaks.12 According to the authors, vaccination led to a 40-fold enhancement of B. parapertussis colonization in the lungs of mice, and the data suggested that the vaccine may be contributing to the observed rise in whooping cough incidence over the last decade by promoting B. parapertussis infection instead.

Fraudulent Research Does Not Inspire Confidence

Please understand that efficacy of a vaccine relates to its ability to produce an antibody and this is NOT at all a good marker for whether or not immunity has been achieved, while effectiveness measures the ability of the vaccine to actually protect against infection. So let’s look at the basic effectiveness of vaccines, and the reliability of the research backing up effectiveness claims. On a number of occasions, outright fraud has been revealed, raising serious doubts about whether or not the stated benefit—the ability of the vaccine to prevent disease—is even part of the risk-benefit equation. If not, you’re taking on risk with very minimal, if any, benefit.

Case in point: in 2012, two former Merck virologists sued their former employer, claiming Merck overstated the effectiveness of the mumps vaccine in the company’s combination MMR shot. A federal antitrust class action lawsuit was also filed that year, in which Merck was accused of falsifying test results and selling millions of doses of the vaccine that were of “questionable efficacy.”

Clearly, vaccine effectiveness has a major bearing on disease outbreaks, and it would appear as though many vaccine failures are simply covered up by blaming outbreaks on the unvaccinated population. This way, ineffective vaccines can still be sold, while everyone’s busy tarring and feathering those who have opted out of using every government recommended vaccine. You know, those who “selfishly” choose not to “share in the risks.”

Another example: in 2012, a systematic review13 of pre- and post-licensure trials of the HPV vaccine showed that the vaccine’s effectiveness is not only overstated (through the use of selective reporting or “cherry picking” data) but also unproven. According to the authors: “[T]he widespread optimism regarding HPV vaccines long-term benefits appears to rest on a number of unproven assumptions (or such which are at odds with factual evidence) and significant misinterpretation of available data.”

2013 HPV vaccine effectiveness study also turned out to have significant discrepancies, raising doubts about the veracity of its conclusions. Upon closer scrutiny, the data actually revealed that unvaccinated girls had the best outcome. Furthermore, records obtained last year through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) revealed that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has so far awarded nearly $5.9 million to 49 victims for harm and/or death resulting from the HPV vaccine.

According to an April 7 report by WCPO News,14 the VAERS database has received more than 31,000 reports of adverse reactions to the HPV vaccine Gardasil. This is up from May 13, 2013, at which point VAERS had received 29,686 adverse event reports (including 136 deaths, 922 reports of disability, and 550 life-threatening adverse events). Is it reasonable to doubt the safety and efficacy of Gardasil? Ask Tracie Moorman, whose 15-year-old daughter Maddie became too chronically ill to attend school after receiving the HPV vaccine. “If I ever could have a do-over, it absolutely would be this situation,” Tracie told WCPO in a recent interview.

Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated: Who’s Healthier?

Large studies comparing the health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children have not been a priority for vaccine researchers. This is a travesty, as this is the kind of research most desperately needed. Most vaccine studies are about developing more vaccines for children and adults to use.

Some claim that studies comparing the health of highly vaccinated and unvaccinated children cannot be done because it would be “unethical” to leave children participating in the study unvaccinated in order to do the comparison. But since some American parents are already delaying or avoiding vaccinating their children, this hardly seems like a reasonable excuse. It is more likely that comparing the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated children in appropriately designed studies are avoided because the results might upset the proverbial apple cart.

However, that doesn’t mean there is a total absence of evidence about the health of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children to give us an indication of whether or not the use of many more vaccines by children in the U.S. is contributing to so many being chronically ill and disabled. In December 2010, a survey was initiated by VaccineInjury.info to compare the health of vaccinated children with unvaccinated children. The survey is ongoing, so if you would like to participate, you can. Though this is obviously not a double-blind controlled study, and depends on the individuals submitting the data to give accurate information, it is still revealing. At the time of this writing, the results show:

Health Condition Prevalence in Vaccinated Children Prevalence in Unvaccinated Children
Allergies 36.71% 11.25%
Asthma 14.23% 2.26%
Hay fever 17.86% of German children 3%
Neurodermatitis (an autoimmune disorder) 23.9% 7.5%
Attention deficit disorder (ADD) 14.94% 1.28%
Middle ear infections 20.84% 7.5%
Sinusitis 12.14% 2.5%
Autism 7.43% 0.49%

Do You Want the Right to Choose Vaccination for Yourself and Your Child?

So, what do we know, and what can we be sure of? One thing that appears to be beyond dispute, based on overwhelming evidence that spans across decades, is that pharmaceutical companies have repeatedly demonstrated their willingness to bribe, lie, threaten and commit fraud in order to bring, and keep, their products on the market. This kind of behavior is so commonplace, it appears to be part and parcel of the accepted modus operandi of the drug industry, albeit unofficially.

So, based on what you know, do you think parents should have the legal right to choose whether or not to give their children every one of the dozens of doses of 15 vaccines that health officials mandate for infants and children attending school and daycare? Do you want that right to know and freedom to choose for yourself which vaccines you are going to get?

I cannot impress upon you strongly enough the importance of your active involvement when it comes to defending our legal right to make informed vaccine choices in America. In order to protect the health of as many children as possible, we cannot continue to ignore the signs that using vaccines as the nation’s primary disease prevention strategy may have been taken too far in the past three decades – to the point that we’re now seeing the health of too many children and adults being compromised..

When you follow the money, you realize that multi-national drug companies marketing vaccines and the organizations they fund are the ones pulling the political strings to eliminate non-medical vaccine exemptions in U.S. state laws. Eliminating the freedom to know and right to choose nationwide would be a major coup by a pharmaceutical industry already making huge profits from vaccine laws that require every person born in America to purchase and use their products. At the same time, the safety of vaccine policies are primarily based on the word of these very companies that not only have their products mandated but also enjoy a liability shield from vaccine injury lawsuits in civil court that was given to them by Congress and the Supreme Court!

Is any of this really wise?

No Time to Waste – Take Action Now

The non-profit National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has been working for 32 years to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and defend the informed consent ethic in vaccine policies and laws. NVIC is leading a grassroots movement to secure and protect broad medical, religious, and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions in state public health laws to prevent parents of minor children and adult workers from being discriminated against and harmed by “no exceptions” mandatory vaccination policies.

On NVIC’s Cry for Vaccine Freedom Wall, you can read (and post) first-hand accounts of threats and coercion by pediatricians, government officials, and employers harrassing and punishing Americans for refusing to get every government recommended and mandated vaccine. It is heartbreaking to read how many people are being bullied into using vaccines against their will – even individuals who have already suffered vaccine reactions and injuries!

In the past few years, states like Washington, Oregon and California have restricted the use of non-medical exemptions and theColorado legislature is currently debating similar legislation. NVIC has testified and has educated families and helped them testify in public hearings in those states.

To become active in your state and make sure your community and elected officials are fully informed about the importance of protecting vaccine exemptions in state laws, sign up for the free online NVIC Advocacy Portal. You will be notified by email when vaccine legislation is moving in your state to restrict or expand vaccine exemptions. You will also be put into direct electronic contact with your own elected officials and can let them know your views with a touch on your smart phone screen or a keystroke on your tablet or computer. If we all stand up for our right to know and freedom to choose the way we want to stay healthy – including whether or not we choose to use vaccines – we will be protecting a fundamental right we cannot afford to lose.

Pregnant woman died after wrong organ removed- the horror of modern medicine


By Kate Seamons

As far as medical mix-ups go, it’s a horrifying one. In October 2011, a 32-year-old woman underwent an operation at Queen’s Hospital outside of London; Maria De Jesus was suffering from appendicitis and needed to have her appendix removed.

Instead, her right ovary was taken out, and De Jesus, who was 21 weeks pregnant with her fourth child at the time, ended up dying roughly three weeks later.

The case is now in front of a medical tribunal, which is weighing the medical fates of the two doctors involved, then-trainee surgeon Dr. Yahya Al-Abed, and Dr.

Babatunde Coker, who was supposed to be supervising him. During the Oct. 23 surgery, De Jesus began to bleed “quite heavily. … In the midst of this, Mr. Al-Abed removed what he clearly believed to be the appendix. He thought he found it, removed it, and gave to a nurse what later turned out to be Patient A’s ovary,” the tribunal heard.

Coker, who was eating lunch at the time, was never summoned, nor was he aware the surgery was taking place. The mistake wasn’t uncovered until much later.

The Telegraph reports that De Jesus returned to the hospital in severe pain on Nov. 7; two days later another doctor realized she still had her appendix, and the next day she went into surgery to have it actually removed.

Instead, she died on the OR table, having earlier delivered a stillborn boy. Her cause of death was ruled as multiple organ failure due to septicemia.

The Press Association reports the hearing will likely last a month. (A New York man is suing over an appendix mix-up of his own.)

The filth and immorality of the secular education system!!! =Teachers doing lap dance


A Houston-area teacher has been charged with doing a lap dance for a boy at school on his 15th birthday.

A criminal complaint says 42-year-old Felicia A. Smith of Spring was charged Thursday with having an improper relationship with a student. Online jail records do not list an attorney for Smith, who was freed on $30,000 bond.

Investigators say the teacher in the Aldin Independent School District allegedly did the suggestive dance on Feb. 26 at Stovall Middle School in front of other students.

The district released a statement saying the teacher has been removed from campus amid the investigation.

Investigators told MyFoxHouston.com that the approximately four-minute lap dance was videotaped and the teacher allowed the student to slap her buttocks.

Smith reportedly told the student “I love you, baby, happy birthday” after the song.

No publicly listed phone number could be located Friday for Smith.

Hepatitis B Vaccine & Systemic Lupus Erythematosus


  from vaccine truth

If there is anything such as ‘breaking news’ and ‘stop the presses’, it ought to be this: Hepatitis B vaccine can cause Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).

That’s what the U.S. National Vaccine Injury Compensation (NVIC) Program agreed, accepted, and settled in the lawsuit brought on behalf of Tambra Harris, who contracted SLE after receiving the Hepatitis B vaccine and subsequently died from SLE.

See http://childhealthsafety.wordpress.com/2011/04/25/us-concedes-hep-b-causes-lupus/

Wait a minute! Isn’t Hepatitis B vaccine mandated for newborns within 24 hours of their birth? Yes! It’s the first vaccination that starts an infant on the treadmill of neurotoxic vaccinations that continue into 2, 4, 6, 12, 15, 18, 19-23 months, 2-3 years, and 4-6 years—that’s for starters! See the CDC’s Immunization Schedule for children athttp://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/recs/schedules/downloads/child/0-6yrs-schedule-pr.pdf

Childhood vaccinations are ‘required’ from 7 to 18 years of a child’s life; check out this CDC site http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/recs/schedules/downloads/child/7-18yrs-schedule-bw.pdf

In view of the March 22, 2011 NVIC agreement signed by Patricia E. Campbell-Smith, Special Master of the vaccine court, that Hep B did cause Ms. Harris’s SLE, the vaccine court agreed to a lump sum of $475,000 compensation for damages and that $9,914 be paid to the State of Mississippi Division of Medicaid for expenses related to Tambra’s care, everyone—parents, FDA, CDC, HHS, and Congress—ought to demand an immediate hiatus—if not permanent ban—on injecting Hep B into a newborn baby.

Hepatitis B usually is contracted from using street drug needles and unprotected sexual intercourse—something newborns don’t interact with. The only exception would be if the newborn’s mother has Hepatitis B, then the vaccine may be helpful. Otherwise, why expose a newborn to the neurotoxic adjuvants aluminum hydroxide or aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, depending upon vaccine manufacturer; or possibly, the EPA-declared carcinogen, formaldehyde, depending upon vaccine manufacturer.

The insidious practice of injecting neurotoxins into newborns and then at 2, 4, 6 months onward into teenage years guarantees several things: An annuity for Big Pharma and vaccine makers; increased U.S. healthcare costs; staggering statistics and demographics regarding ADD, ADHD, Autism Disorder Spectrum, possible childhood diabetes, and an entire spectrum of chronic childhood diseases that scientific research is proving associated with Autoimmune/inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (ASIA) as published in the Journal Autoimmunology 2011 Feb; 36 (1):4-8.
