Government Again Concedes Vaccines Cause Autism

Click on the title of this post to view the actual article in the Huffington Post.

Luckily, the parents of this little boy took him for an MRI about 1-2 weeks following his vaccinations. The MRI showed brain and spinal cord damage, which is how they were able to "prove" that it caused his condition (PDD-NOS, which is what Holden's "official" diagnosis is, also). I read an article from The Thoughful House - in Austin, TX, where the doctor there said that what happened to Bailey Banks is what happened to thousands of children who have ASD, however, the brain damage will not show on a MRI after a certain period of time. I copied and pasted that article below this one, as well.

Government Again Concedes Vaccines Cause Autism

Mysterious Vaccine Court created in 1986 by Congress and the pharmaceutical industry rules in favor of Bailey Banks against HHS.

Los Angeles - February 23, 2009 - Generation Rescue, Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey’s Los Angeles-based non-profit autism organization, today announced that the United States Government has once again conceded that vaccines cause autism. The announcement comes on the heels of the recently discovered court case of Bailey Banks vs. HHS, reported on the Huffington Post. The ruling states, “The Court found that Bailey would not have suffered this delay but for the administration of the MMR vaccine…a proximate sequence of cause and effect leading inexorably from vaccination to PDD [Autism].”

In a curious and hypocritical method of operation, the mysterious Vaccine Court not only protects vaccine makers from liability but created a policy that has tripled the number of vaccines given to U.S. children – all after being made aware of the fact that these vaccines do, in fact, cause autism and repeatedly ruling in favor of families with children hurt by their vaccines.

“It was heartbreaking to hear about Bailey’s story, but through this ruling we are gaining the proof we need to open the eyes of the world to the fact that vaccines do, in fact, cause autism,” said Jenny McCarthy, Hollywood actress, autism activist, best-selling author and Generation Rescue board member. “Bailey Banks’ regression into autism after vaccination is the same story I went through with my own son and the same story I have heard from thousands of mothers and fathers around the country. Our hope is that this ruling will influence decision and policy-makers to help the hundreds of thousands of children and families affected by this terrible condition.”

Banks vs. HHS is the second known case where the Vaccine Court could not deny the overwhelming evidence showing vaccines caused a child's autism. The first was the case of Hannah Poling in March of 2008, where the Government conceded her case and awarded her family compensation.

Jim Carrey, Hollywood legend and Generation Rescue board member, reacted to the news, “It seems the U.S. government is sending mixed messages by telling the world that vaccines don't cause autism, while, at the same time, they are quietly managing a ‘separate vaccine court’ that is ruling in favor of affected families and finding that vaccines, in fact, were the cause. For most of the autism community the question is no longer whether vaccines caused of their child’s autism. The question is why is their government is only promoting the rulings that are in favor of the vaccine companies.”

Why is a secret court, which no one knows about or understands, quietly paying these families for vaccine injuries and autism? Deirdre Imus, Generation Rescue board member and founder of the Deirdre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology says, “Over the past 20 years, the vaccine court has dispensed close to $2 billion in compensation to families whose children were injured or killed by a vaccine. I am not against vaccines and my own child has been vaccinated. But, I share the growing concerns of many parents questioning the number of vaccines given to children today, some of the toxic ingredients in vaccines, and whether we know enough about the combination risks associated with the multiple vaccines given to children during critical developmental windows.”

To help spread the word of the Banks ruling, Generation Rescue also bought a full-page ad that will run in the USA Today on 02/25/2009, which has a daily circulation of 2,272,815.

Thoughtful House Center for Children on Court Ruling: MMR Causes Autistic Disorder
Court Rules MMR Vaccine Causes Autistic Disorder
Decision Contradicts Findings in Controversial Cedillo Case

(Austin, Texas) – The controversial decision by the US vaccine court that there was no link between MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccines and autism was a contradiction to a ruling issued by the same court in June of 2007. On Friday, February 20, 2009, just days after its controversial announcement denying the vaccine-autism link in the Cedillo case, the court awarded more than $3 million to the family of 10 year-old Bailey Banks (estimated lifetime support and damages) and confirmed that the child’s acute brain damage was a result of the MMR vaccine, which led to the autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) .

Although the US vaccine court continues official denials of any connection between the MMR shots and autism, it quietly settled the case with the Banks family. Special Master Richard Abell wrote that the Banks had successfully demonstrated “the MMR vaccine at issue actually caused the conditions from which Bailey suffered and continues to suffer.”

Awards have now been granted to three families because the vaccine court has decided there was a causative connection between the MMR 3 in 1 shot and brain damage in children where that damage resulted in an ASD . Vaccines have also been found to be causally related to autism spectrum disorders in 8 other cases by the same court. In the Banks’ decision, the court relied on the report from a complete neurological investigation, which included an MRI scan, 16 days after his MMR shot. He was diagnosed with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), a neurological disorder characterized by inflammation of the brain and spinal cord that is known to follow immunization.

“I am personally aware of many, many parents who report these exact symptoms in their children following MMR immunization,” said Dr. Andrew Wakefield, Executive Director of Thoughtful House, an autism treatment center in Austin, Texas. “Very few children with autistic regression receive the proper work-up that Bailey had during the early stage of the disease, so a possible ADEM diagnosis may well have been missed in the other children. The MRI findings often disappear after the damage has been done.”

Signs of ADEM usually appear within a few days to a few weeks after immunization or infection and often start with gastrointestinal or respiratory symptoms. The disease progresses to neurological deterioration including loss of eye contact, ataxia (incoordination), changes in mental status, delirium, lethargy, and seizures.

"The contradictory rulings from the Vaccine Court regarding vaccines and autism demonstrate that we still don't have a definitive answer," said Dr. Bryan Jepson, an autism specialist at Thoughtful House. “We need to realize that the question of MMR’s potential contribution to autism remains under scientific debate. Ultimately, the correct answer will come through honest, transparent and rigorous scientific study, not from a court bench.”

About Thoughtful House: Thoughtful House takes a multi-disciplinary approach to treating autism and supports a ‘safety-first’ vaccination policy that gives parents the option of choosing a single measles vaccine for their children. Thoughtful House is dedicated to research to scientifically determine if there is a link between MMR and other vaccines and the onset of autism. www.thoughtfulhouse.org

BOCA RATON, FL -- Boca Raton father, Ben Zeller, says his son, Ben, Jr., was a normal 11-month-old when he received the Measles, Mump and Rubella shot in November of 2004.

Within days, he had a complete febral seizure.

"This was a reaction to the MMR shot, there is no doubt in my mind," Zeller said.

Zeller was one of the first to prove his case in the Federal Vaccine Court. Last July, the court ruled his son would not have experienced the seizure if it weren't for the MMR vaccine.

"We have thousands of cases and we can show all vaccines are causing the exact same problem," said Dr. Andrew Moulden, a Canadian physician gathering evidence to support a class action lawsuit.

Moulden is spending the next week in South Florida interviewing families like the Zeller's.

"To stop this from going on, we have to go to the courts," Moulden said. "They won't stop doing this until we hold them fiscally responsible."

Moulden has gathered more than five thousand images of children's faces taken before and after the MMR vaccine to help prove his case.

The photos highlight children's eyes turning in and out as well as the corner of their mouth dropping.

"These are classic signs of a stroke and clearly a direct result of vaccines," Moulden said.

Still, many doctors and Health Departments say shots are not only safe but needed.

"It prevents death and disability from 14 childhood diseases so it is very important to give vaccines to keep kids healthy," said Deborah Hogan with the Florida Department of Health.

Moulden disagrees and says the proof is in the pictures.

"It's time for them to listen," he said.

Dr. Moulden is asking all families who believe their child may have had an adverse reaction to the vaccine to send him pictures before and after.
