Courts quietly confirm MMR Vaccine causes Autism

Syringe_with_Green_FluidAfter decades of passionate debate, parents probably missed the repeated admissions by drug companies and governments alike that vaccines do in fact cause autism. For concerned parents seeking the truth, it’s worth remembering that the exact same people who own the world’s drug companies also own America’s news outlets. Finding propaganda-free information has been difficult, until now.

Dr. Andrew Wakefield

At the center of the fifteen-year controversy is Dr. Andrew Wakefield of Austin, Texas. It was Dr. Wakefield that first publicized the link between stomach disorders and autism, and taking the findings one step further, the link between stomach disorders, autism and the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine.

For that discovery way back in 1996, and a subsequent research paper published by the doctor in 1998, Andrew Wakefield has found himself the victim of a world-wide smear campaign by drug corporations, governments and media companies. And while Dr. Wakefield has been persecuted and prosecuted to the extent of being unable to legally practice medicine because of his discovery, he has instead become a best-selling author, the founder of the Strategic Autism Initiative, and the Director of the Autism Media Channel.

But in recent months, courts, governments and vaccine manufacturers have quietly conceded the fact that the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine most likely does cause autism and stomach diseases. Pharmaceutical companies have even gone so far as to pay out massive monetary awards, totaling in the millions, to the victims in an attempt to compensate them for damages and to buy their silence.

Grassroots outcry

It was a regular reader named Kathleen that brought this ongoing story to our attention here at Whiteout Press. When asked what her connection to the vaccine-autism battle was, the young reader replied, “I just researched it for a school project a while back and then I stayed on top of it, until I couldn’t stand it anymore. I’m not a parent, nor do I belong to any organization – a mere outside observer.”

This reader isn’t alone. The news that vaccines cause autism has spread across the US despite a coordinated media black-out. She takes her concerns one step further explaining, “All I want is to see this information where the public can access it. I’ve looked everywhere, and no one gives this dire Wakefield situation even ONE small mention.” She goes on to give us another motivation for her activism, “In Washington State, where I’m from, vaccines have become mandatory for school children, which is very frightening!”

Landmark rulings

In December 2012, two landmark decisions were announced that confirmed Dr. Wakefield’s original concern that there is a link between the MMR vaccine, autism and stomach disorders. The news went mostly unreported, but independent outlets like The Liberty Beacon finally began publishing the groundbreaking news.

The website wrote last month, ‘In a recently published December 13, 2012 vaccine court ruling, hundreds of thousands of dollars were awarded to Ryan Mojabi, whose parents described how “MMR vaccinations” caused a “severe and debilitating injury to his brain, diagnosed as Autism Spectrum Disorder (‘ASD’).”’

The Liberty Beacon went on to describe the second court ruling that month, as well as similar previous verdicts writing, ‘Later the same month, the government suffered a second major defeat when young Emily Moller from Houston won compensation following vaccine-related brain injury that, once again, involved MMR and resulted in autism. The cases follow similar successful petitions in the Italian and US courts (including Hannah Poling, Bailey Banks, Misty Hyatt, Kienan Freeman, Valentino Bocca, and Julia Grimes) in which the governments conceded or the court ruled that vaccines had caused brain injury. In turn, this injury led to an ASD diagnosis. MMR vaccine was the common denominator in these cases.’

The report echoes the exact same sentiment that our reader conveyed – Dr. Wakefield has had his career and reputation destroyed over the past 15 years, but has just been vindicated. The account reports, ‘While repeated studies from around the world confirmed Wakefield’s bowel disease in autistic children and his position that safety studies of the MMR are inadequate, Dr. Wakefield ’s career has been destroyed by false allegations.  Despite this he continues to work tirelessly to help solve the autism catastrophe.’

The article from The Liberty Beacon closes with a direct quote from Dr. Wakefield himself to the independent grassroots outlet, “There can be very little doubt that vaccines can and do cause autism. In these children, the evidence for an adverse reaction involving brain injury following the MMR that progresses to an autism diagnosis is compelling. It’s now a question of the body count. The parents’ story was right all along. Governments must stop playing with words while children continue to be damaged. My hope is that recognition of the intestinal disease in these children will lead to the relief of their suffering. This is long, long overdue.”

Wakefield attacked again

Since the world has slowly become aware of the dangers of the MMR vaccine, parents around the globe have refused to get their children vaccinated. Earlier this year, the UK government singled out Dr. Wakefield and blamed him for the rising number of measles outbreaks in the country. In an April 2013 interview, he responded publicly.

The website TheRefusers.com published both the video, as well as the written transcript, of Dr. Wakefield’s public response. Below are some excerpts of the doctor’s remarks:

“The important thing to say is that back in 1996-1997 I was made aware of children developing autism, regressive autism, following exposure in many cases to the measles mumps rubella vaccine. Such was my concern about the safety of that vaccine that I went back and reviewed every safety study, every pre-licensing study of the MMR vaccine and other measles-containing vaccines before they were put into children and after. And I was appalled with the quality of that science. It really was totally below par and that has been reiterated by other authoritative sources since.

All I could do as a parent was to say, ‘what would I do for my child?’ That was the only honest answer I could give. My position on that has not changed. So, what happened subsequently? At that time the single measles vaccines were available freely on the National Health Service. Otherwise, I would not have suggested that option.  So parents, if they were legitimately concerned about the safety of MMR could go and get the single vaccines. Six months later, the  British government unilaterally withdrew the importation license for the single vaccines, therefore depriving parents of having these on the NHS; depriving parents who had legitimate concerns  about the safety of MMR from a choice; denying them the opportunity to protect their children in the way that they saw fit.


The news shouldn’t be left wing or right wing, conservative or liberal. It should be the news. It should be independentWhiteout Press


And I was astonished by this and I said to Dr Elizabeth Miller of the Health Protection Agency, ‘why would you do this, if your principal concern is to protect children from serious infectious disease? Why would you remove an option from parents who are legitimately concerned about the safety of MMR?’ And her answer was extraordinary. She said to me, ‘if we allow parents the option of single vaccines, it would destroy our MMR program.’ In other words, her principal concern seemed to be full protection of the MMR program and not protection of children.”

Dr. Wakefield himself reiterates the final conclusion of the courts in various countries, but censored by the world’s media outlets saying:

“Now this question has been answered not by me, but by the courts, by the vaccine courts in Italy and in the United States of America where it appears that many children over the last thirty years have been awarded millions of dollars for the fact that they have been brain-damaged by MMR vaccine and other vaccines and that brain damage has led to autism. That is a fact.”

    wow! As a mother of a son with autism…. I am happy to hear the courts are paying and pharmaceuticals will have to make some changes. There is no secret here… something is wrong here in America. We gladly send man/ woman to the moon, but cant figure out what is critically debilitating our future…( yes, these seem children).

    I have always held the belief that there is ‘no smoke without fire’ most likely due to growing up in a country that has a saying for everything. I have 4 children, and all of them have been given vaccinations as it is compulsory where I am, for being able to attend childcare facilities schools etc and I was not happy with the ‘grumblings’ based around the dangers of the MMR most of my children received single vaccines because I was still able to choose this option at the time, one of my children got the 5 in 1 and is the only child with a learning disorder (mild). in making my decision, I based it on the fact that single vaccines had been around for as long as I could remember without issue. in my limited research, it led me to the fact that single vaccines were tested for years as per requirements but as they had each gained approval separately, combining these vaccines did not require this and pharmaceutical companies were given the green light. this needless to say, saved millions of dollars by bypassing testing and gained billions on the medical market. the governments decision to remove single vaccines was also about saving money and gaining campaign contributions in my opinion. while I am not convinced it is the only contributing factor to autism, I am sceptical enough to not just accept what controlled media tells me. I watched my niece get her vaccine a few years ago and no sooner was she put in the car to go home she took her first ever seizure and was diagnosed epileptic. I do believe the vaccine triggered something that was already in her body which prior to vaccination was dormant, and something else could possibly have triggered it at another time but it was set off by her injection on that day. I also think there is a real possibility that some people are more susceptible than others and it is this we must get to the bottom of. these combined vaccinations should be put to the test and trialled properly as a combination and not given the go ahead because they were ok as separate doses. mixing anything, even harmless substances with other “harmless” substances readily available on the market can cause issues, we are constantly told mixing alcohol with red bull is dangerous and has caused heart issues/attacks etc (ok a very simple example!) in susceptible people why would the same not apply to mixing potent, live vaccines! I am still on the fence on this issue but the root of the problem is that not enough testing was done in the rush to make billions of dollars, pharmaceutical companies have far to much influence over governments and media and anyone else that puts money before all else.

    Have any of you actually HAD the diseases this vaccine seeks to prevent? Measles, mumps, and rubella (German measles) are not diseases to f*ck around with. I’ve had the measles, which people seem to think is ‘no big deal’ – people equate it with the chicken pox, but they are in no way similar. I have never in my life been so sick. I had to lie in a dark room for two weeks so that I didn’t go blind. I needed help to walk to the washroom, I was coughing up blood non-stop, my lymph nodes were the size of limes and my fever for the entire duration was between 102 and 104 degrees – sometimes so high I was delirious. I lost 20 lb in a few weeks, which is not awesome for someone who only weighed 97 lb to begin with. I nearly died, but whatever. Measles are no big deal, right? Especially if you spend time with seniors or babies who haven’t had the change to get vaccinated. Might as well get their polio done and over with early. Don’t fucking tell me this is what you wish for your children. It’s not what I want or MY children, so keep your disgusting kids home. I’m not kidding. Home school your kids, because they have no place mixed in with regular kids whose parents are not semi-abusive idiots.

    Rubella (German measles), if contracted during pregnancy, can cause a host of birth defects or even fetal death. Nothing says “I love you, sweet baby. Sorry about the blindness, deafness and intellectual disabilities, but I don’t believe in preventing those things for my kid, so…”

    Anti-vaxxers child should not be allowed in school (or in public, even). It’s your kid, do what you want, I guess, but keep your Typhoid Marys at home and away from my kids. You are horrible people to purposely not care about your kids’ health or the health of those around you. Expose your kids to the measles and see how it goes. Trust me, you will not enjoy results.

      If you actually had any faith in the vaccines you wouldn’t be so paranoid about your kids mixing with unvaccinated kids.

    • prof  August 16, 2013 at 8:43 pm

      That’s funny, I had measles and didn’t suffer nearly as much as you seem to have. Are you sure you had measles? Or perhaps you just don’t handle illness well.
      Either way, this article isn’t anti-vaccination, it talks about 3 things:
      1) The need for a medical system that gives people the right to know the risks of the drugs they are given.
      2) Stricter studies on vaccinations for children
      3) A media that actually works *for* the public rather than one that protects drug companies when they screw up. They have to screw up, we know that. Making new drugs is tough and obviously they can’t know everything that can go wrong but hiding it to continue selling their product makes everything much more insidious.

      How old were you when you had this? sounds like you were not a child. These illnesses tend to be relatively less extreme in children than what you described. I had measles and mumps as a kid and while I wouldn’t say I enjoyed the experience, it was far from life-threatening. It’s when people don’t have them as a child that the prospect of catching them later in life does become a more serious threat, as you discovered.

      I have never been inoculated or vaccinated with anything. I had chicken pox as well as the above as a child. I’m now 30 and I have a healthy immune system.

  5. Tee  August 13, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    so sad that to controversy cannot be stopped by simply NOT using mercury and other dangerous chemicals in the vaccinations, or separating them out like they were years ago. I was born in 1959 and have no autism in my family until now 2013. My daughter was diagnosed under the autism spectrum. My daughter was born healthy, happy no issues. After her shots, which she had a severe reaction to, she changed, but that said, my best information still says that vaccination is the best method to prevent catastrophic disease! We have no real choice here. I do wish that the companies would find other chemicals to go with the vaccine so as to end all this controversy.

    Roger, you’ve rather missed the point.

    Dr. Wakefield never suggested that children not be vaccinated against the three diseases: he and his team concluded that there was a causal link between the COMBINED vaccine and autism and a gastro-intestinal ailment; their conclusion might have been wrong.

    The crux of this matter—the only thing that matters in the whole debate—is not whether children ought to be inoculated against the diseases: it’s whether parents ought to be able to choose to have their children inoculated for each disease individually or to be forced to take the combined vaccination. It’s cheaper to administer the one combined vaccine than to administer the three separate ones; that alone drove the policy of the divers governments that chose to use the M.M.R. vaccine.

    I dare say Wakefield would agree without hesitation that it’s better for a child to be inoculated with the combined vaccine than to be at risk of measles (in particular). In the instant case, however, individual vaccines WERE available but, because—and only because—treasury departments were anxious to save money in the administration of the inoculative programme, parents were denied the choice.

    Many parents, on reading of Wakefield’s research (apparently suggesting a risk of iatrogenic injury from the use of the combined vaccine vice the individual ones), chose to err—quite understandably—on the side of caution and to have their children inoculated with individual vaccines; the refusal of treasury departments to accede to their choice (as described in the foregoing paragraph) gave rise to the ultimate failure of many parents to have their children vaccinated at all. The ordinary parent—even the parent on the Clapham omnibus (the ‘reasonable’ parent)—cannot be expected to analyse this subject in depth (which might, as I’ve suggested, have led him to conclude that the M.M.R. was better than no vaccination at all): it’s simply beyond his level of education.

    This does not surprise me with this government at all. They have no regard for children. They are disposable to them. That is apparent by whom they fund.(i.e Planned Parenthood). The only thing that matters is money and the big companies like Monsanto and the drug companies. Nothing is going to change until enough people cause enough noise to get this administration to concede and force to change where it should be. I hope better options become available soon. I don’t want my grand kids affected by this shot.

    This article could be so much better, if it was based on known facts rather then anectodal hearsay. Whether the combined vs the single vaccine make any difference, or no difference, we don’t have sufficient research data yet. But what IS a fact is, what only very few seem to know is this – in the UK MMR contained a mercury compound used to preserve the vaccines which was legally removed from the Market SUPPLY in 2004. However, stocks were still being used up, only not more vaccines were apparantly produced with mercury in it. Mercury is known to be a heavy metal neuro toxin which caused ‘autistic behaviour’ when given to rats. Conclude from this what you may.
    The MMR vaccine manufacturers’ information sheets specify that the live vaccines should not be given to anyone with a compromised immune system and gives a specific warning if there is a family or personal history of neurological problems or if the child has had a seizure of any kind. All you can do is ask your GP for the leaflet and look at the specific ingredients and make your decision. The Doctor won’t like it, but that’s not of importance.
    The question that becomes relevant is: what if you don’t know every other family members biochemical discrepancies, ie neurological problems? Who does?
    Well, that’s it people. Which child gets tested for a weakened immune system or immune dysfunction before they got a shot of MMR?? My son became autistic, I believe he was predisposed to it by having a weak immune system, but he received the combined MMR at 13 months, after getting the Dip. and HepB and Polio shots at 2, 3 and 4 months. By the age of 2 it was clear things were not going as they should be. I will NEVER know whether my child not have developed moderate autism if he hadn’t received vaccinations of that kind! Yes, I’m for keeping children free of horrible diseases of course, but FIRST make sure you (the Pharma Industry) develops tests to check every child’s level of immune defence to be suitable for vaccines, take out heavy metal preservatives INTERNATIONALLY and start working on what to do if you are presented with a weakened immune system case!!! My child is not ‘collateral damage’ or ‘a minority’- I am investing all my energy and finances in getting him better and educated in the best way. Shame on the governments of the world who have not woken up to the reality that cannot be ignored and for covering up the truth. But things WILL change, because increases in Autism and other developmental issues are here to stay and multiply by many fold, until somebody somewhere finds us some more answers. Until then, I’m keeping my sleeves rolled up, my eyes peeled and my hope will not fade.

    So, let me get this straight. A bunch of people with absolutely NO scientific or medical background have said vaccines cause autism? Well, I guess that solves that problem.

    By the way, I’m going to state that the world is flat – I’m not a cartographer and I have never taken a geography class or flown around the world in one shot but because I drive and there is no curve in the road it leads me to declare that the earth is flat. There I’ve declared it, so it must be true.

    People who use the vaccine court to prove that vaccines cause something are completely ignorant of what the vaccine court does. The vaccine court is a no-fault court and is really set up to protect vaccine manufacturers, not patients. The court awards **settlements,** not rulings. This is done to protect manufacturers from frivolous and expensive law suits. The court was set up in the 1980s after a Goebbels-like hit piece called Vaccine Roulette aired. This piece of propaganda stated that the DTaP vaccine cause neurological damage (this was later proven to be false) and caused many parents to sue vaccine manufacturers – to the point that many went out of business. Again, it was later proven that vaccines do not cause this neurological damage. Realizing the danger in allowing so many vaccine manufacturers to be sued and put out of business, the government set up the vaccine court.

    Anyone can look this up with a simple google search and using credible sources (Wikipedia is a good place to start).

    Nice try but epic epic failure on the part of trueactivist…somehow I don’t think they care though.
