As parents of children, who suffered serious reactions to vaccination, we have worked to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and defend the informed consent ethic since 1982. Our work has always been dedicated to the children, who had no voice and had no choice, and who lost their lives or their health because of one-size-fits all mass vaccination policies promoted and enforced in the absence of adequate scientific knowledge about how and why vaccines cause harm.
Our goal is to promote open public discussion about what is and is not known about vaccination in order to (1) encourage well designed research into the biological mechanisms of vaccine injury and death; (2) investigate the long term, chronic effects of the repeated use of multiple vaccines in childhood and throughout life; (3) identify genetic and other biological high risk factors for adverse responses to vaccination; and (4) develop therapies that will reduce or eliminate vaccine-induced neurological and immune system dysfunction. We are also committed to defending the human right for all citizens to make informed, voluntary decisions about medical interventions which carry a risk of injury or death, including vaccination, because informed consent is the centerpiece of the ethical practice of modern medicine.
For us, it is and has always been about saving one life at a time. The witnessing taking place on this International Memorial for Vaccine Victims is about saving the lives of those now living and those who are yet to be born.
