US Call Your Rep., Stop resolution that denies vaccine injuries occur

Oct 3, 2017 by

     The US House of Representatives is considering House Resolution 327 which asserts that, “there is no credible evidence to show that vaccines cause life-threatening or disabling diseases in healthy children or adults,” among other demonstrably false claims that could be easily refuted with a cursory look at the federal government’s own data. House Resolution 327, Recognizing the importance of vaccinations and immunizations in the United States, was introduced by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank, CA) and is co-sponsored so far by 33 of his colleagues.
    Please click on the link below to send a message to your member of the House asking him or her to oppose this Resolution, and to remove their name as a co-sponsor if they have already signed-on.  Before you do that, if you value the news, information and advocacy made available to you by the Autism Action Network, please make it possible for us to continue in our work by donating to our one fundraising event of the year at:

     And please make two phone calls to Washington, DC today, one to Representative Schiff’s office, and another to your Representative’s office. Please politely let them know that the there is a huge body of data on vaccine injuries that they should study before supporting demonstrably false resolutions. Ask if your Rep. is a co-sponsor, and if they are ask them to remove their names. If he or she isn’t a co-sponsor, ask them to keep their name off House Resolution 327.
Rep. Adam Schiff, (202) 225-4176
Rep. Ted Lieu (202) 225-3976
     House Resolution 327 reads like a press release from a vaccine company.  See it here:
     Rep. Schiff appears unfamiliar with the most basic facts about vaccines and vaccine policy. Every package insert for every vaccine in America contains information about the possible injuries the Federal government admits could occur to healthy adults and children. Schiff and colleagues also seem to be unaware of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, the “vaccine court,” that considers thousands of cases of vaccine injury every year and has paid out more than $3 billion in damages. If vaccines are as safe as Schiff claims why does the vaccine industry and pediatricians demand complete liability protection from any injury caused by a vaccine?
     Schiff’s Resolution states, “Whereas vaccines in the United States undergo exhaustive safety testing before they are licensed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are monitored for adverse events after health care providers begin administering them to patients” If vaccines are as safe as Schiff asserts why the need to monitor adverse events that he claims do not occur?
   Schiff also condemns, without being specific, criticism of vaccine safety, “the dissemination of unfounded, and debunked, theories about the dangers of vaccinations pose a great risk to public health,” but we all know what he means.
