JAYSON VELEY–Late last month, a formal Administrative Procedures Act Petition was filed with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to establish a five-year moratorium on childhood vaccinations. The petition was filed by Kent Heckenlively, JD, an attorney from the state of California whose child was injured by a vaccination, Rima E. Laibow, MD, Medical Director of the Natural Solutions Foundation, and Ralph Fucetola, JD, President of the Institute for Health Research.
“With this formal filing today at Regulations.gov joining the WhiteHouse.gov petition I filed earlier this month we are establishing our legal standing to call for the Five Year Childhood Vaccination Moratorium,” said Heckenlively.
Ralph Fucetola, who has 35 years of experience in law, went on to explain the reason as to why the petition was filed in the first place. “Under the APA formal Citizens Petitions to government agencies have legal standing to begin the process of adopting regulatory changes, either through the agency directly or by White House Executive order,” Fucetola said. He continued, “The two petitions submitted by Counsel Heckenlively together deliver an important message to the Federal Government regarding uninsurable vaccines that have been determined by courts to be ‘unavoidably unsafe.’ We demand a moratorium on childhood vaccines until and unless they are proven safe and effective, as required by law.”
The official petition on WhiteHouse.gov, which currently has over 6,600 signatures, asks the White House to do four things: Enact a five year moratorium on vaccines for children below the age of eighteen, repeal the 1986 National Childhood vaccine injury Act, perform large scale studies on both vaccinated and unvaccinated children in order to learn more about the effects of vaccines, and ban direct pharmaceutical advertising to consumers and only permit advertising that is directed towards medical professionals.
While there is still an ongoing and rigorous debate in this country over the potentially harmful effects of vaccinations, what we know to be true is that there are countless stories out there of young people who have experienced tremendous amounts of suffering after receiving vaccines. Below are three of those stories.
When she was just six months old, Cerenity was given a total of eight vaccinations that changed her life forever. Despite the fact that the vaccines had a history of causing paralysis and brain damage, Cerenity’s neurologist told her parents that there was still no good reason to stop the vaccinations altogether. Sadly, Cerenity’s life will now be filled with more pain and suffering than it would have been had she never received the vaccines.
After receiving her second MMR vaccine dose, young Holly suffered from severe convulsions and brain damage, which left her on life support for a short period of time before her parents tragically made the decision to let their daughter die in peace. After Holly’s death, her mother Robin was awarded compensation when it was revealed that the MMR vaccine caused Holly to suffer acute encephalopathy. With support from New Jersey’s governor, Holly’s Law was created to help spare the lives of young children who may have the same fate as Holly did after receiving the MMR vaccine.
Just one month after his first birthday, Michael Eugene Whitesell received six vaccine doses, which included the MMR, varicella, hepatitis A and flu shot vaccines. Three days after receiving the vaccinations, Michael developed a minor fever. Although Michael’s parents gave him Tylenol to bring his fever down, early the next morning, Michael was found lifeless in his crib. Even after Michael’s dad, Thomas, performed CPR on him, Michael did not recover. There was nothing anybody could do to bring him back.
The debate over the potential risks of vaccinations will likely continue for years, but regardless of what the outcome of this nationwide debate may be, our country should be doing everything it can to ensure that vaccines are as safe as possible. There is a significant amount of evidence that leads one to believe that vaccinations may, in fact, be to blame for numerous injuries and deaths that occur not only within our own country but also throughout the world. It is time we do something about it.
