Martin Walker, known for his classical work Dirty Medicine and more recently for Skewed and HRT: Licensed to Kill & Maim as well as a series of other works critical of the current paradigm of organized, pharma-dominated medicine has sent the following appeal to help parents of vaccine-damaged children in the UK in their campaign to protect those honest medical doctors and researchers who have pointed out that there is a connection between vaccines and a condition known as autism.
Walker gives a good overview of the pharma-inspired and government-run campaign against these doctors who dare go against the system and recommend - God forbid - a return to single vaccinations instead of currently used dangerous combinations such as the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine.
Who Will Rid Me of this Troublesome Doctor
In December 1170, a memorable sentence was uttered. England's king, Henry II, angered by the laxness of the religious courts toward monks and priests, had appointed his friend and chancellor, Thomas a Becket, as the Archbishop of Canterbury, head of the Catholic Church in England. Once he was in that position, however, Becket refused to reform the courts, which led to a serious rift between them. Their quarrel was temporarily mended, but then Becket began to excommunicate Henry's supporters. That led to Henry's saying, in the presence of four knights, “Who will rid me of this troublesome Priest?” The result, of course, was that the knights took this as a royal command and killed Becket in Canterbury Cathedral.
The parents of nine year old Hannah Poling argued in a Federal Vaccine court in North America, last autumn, that the vaccines she had received had created regressive autism. The court oversaw an out of court settlement between the parents and a pharmaceutical company. The case was settled last year, but the parents had not spoken publicly about the settlement, on the instructions of the court until two weeks ago. The single case was one of three test cases representing a grpoup of over 5,000 parent claimants who argue that vaccination created autism spectrum disorder in their child.
The news of the Poling case, landed like a bomb that failed to go off in Britain, flying as it did in the face of all the arguments put forward by the government and the science lobby groups that there could be no possible link between MMR and regressive autism. The cowed British press, with a couple of notable exceptions, now supine in the face of government threats and censorship, simply refused to report the case, arguing as did various statutory authorities and pharmaceutical companies in North America that this was one odd and complicated case. It was complicated they said by the fact that Hannah had a pre-existing condition that the vaccination had excacerbated. While the authorities argued that no general conclusions could be drawn from the case, Hannas parents told the press that they had no knowledge of the supposed pre-existing condition that was supposed to have been exacerbated by the vaccination.
Despite the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in particular arguing that the case was idiosyncratic, within days of its publication, other North American cases were surfacing with parents claiming that they had previously agreed not to make public their settlements. While one cannot blame parents for playing into the government’s hands, in such circumstances, it is clear that the medical establishment and a number of politicians, must have been privy to the fact that as far as the courts were concerned, the pharmaceutical companies had conceded the scientific evidence of a link between vaccination and autism.
A powerful campaign is now under way in North America to force the resignation of Dr. Julie Gerberding, head of the CDC who is still insistent that the Poling case is meaningless within the broader picture. The CDC, however, which is riddled with conflict of interests is still arguing against any link between vaccination and autism although it is clear that they must have known of stock-piling court decisions on this matter.
Against this background of revelations that are constantly undermining the British and North American establishment’s position on this issue, in Britain three doctors are preparing to present their defence against the GMC, the government, the medical establishment and the science lobby all of whom accused them in 2004 of spreading alarm and despondency by publishing their well researched claims, in 1998, of a link between MMR and autism spectrum disorder in a number of specific children...
