A Culture of Life?

Deadly Immunity by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

When a study revealed that mercury in childhood vaccines may have caused autism in thousands of kids, the government rushed to conceal the data — and to prevent parents from suing drug companies for their role in the epidemic.

“Something very, very wrong is happening to our children”

“You couldn’t even construct a study that shows thimerosal is safe,” says Haley, who heads the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky. “It’s just too darn toxic. If you inject thimerosal into an animal, its brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a petri dish, the culture dies. Knowing these things, it would be shocking if one could inject it into an infant without causing damage.”

Watch a 30 second commercial and get your day pass to Salon to read this article and two supporting articles about thimerosol that are a result of a joint Salon/Rolling Stone Investigation.
In addition to Kennedy’s article there is a powerful personal story and A thimerosal resource guide: Salon’s syllabus of source documents, related articles and links to advocacy organizations. Compiled by Brendan DeMelle and Page Rockwell.
Until today, you only thought you despised the Bush administration.

  1. Frist’s aide, defending the “Eli Lilly Protection Act”: “The lawsuits are of such magnitude that they could put vaccine producers out of business and limit our capacity to deal with a biological attack by terrorists.”
    Is there any campaign-contributing industry to whom this sort of statement could not be applied? Perpetual war, perpetual justification for political favoritism.

  2. Those of us who deal with the effects of autism every day (I have a ten year old autistic son who can not yet speak and is still in diapers)appreciate those from outside the autism community taking an interest in this issue. Thank you.
