Parents and Advocates Label Today's Vaccine Court Rulings Insincere and Politically Driven, Says National Autism Association
Date:2/12/2009

rbidding plaintiff access to the Vaccine Safety Database (VSD). "It's difficult for parents to have a fair day in court when both funding for vaccine research and VSD access has been blocked," says NAA Executive Director Rita Shreffler.

For years, thousands of parents have come forward with the same account: their perfectly healthy child regressed into a state of autism following well-baby checkups where vaccinations were received. But as more and more families come forward, they are repeatedly told it is merely a coincidence. "These children are basically collateral damage while parents receive the coincidence theory from pediatricians and federal health agencies," says NAA board chair Lori McIlwain. "Thousands of parents have the same story. Will it still be considered a coincidence when we reach the millions?"

Since the NVICP was established, vaccines given to children have grown at an alarming rate and so have the rates of childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, ADD, ADHD, Bi-Polar Disorder, Autism and more. "As a nation, we have substituted acute illness with chronic disease and have produced the sickest generation of children ever in America," says Shreffler. "New parents are not blind to this and the government's reaction to the autism-vaccine connection creates further anxiety. The government is undermining the very program they're trying to promote."
