Medical Experiments Through Forced Inoculations
In an experiment to find out of they could give high-potency Edmonston Zagreb (EZ) measles vaccine to babies as young as four months old in order to overwhelm their natural maternal antibodies and replace them with vaccine-induced antibodies, medical "researchers" at the CDC and Johns Hopkins University injected thousands of babies in the Third World with the experimental vaccine that reportedly caused chronic immune suppression and the deaths of an unknown number of babies. Also, in the United States, with the help of Kaiser Permanente, more than 1500 six-month-old black and Hispanic babies in inner city Los Angeles were "enrolled" in the experiment starting in June 1990. The study was halted in October 1991, after more than one year of genocidal activity, after repeated reports from vaccine trial sites in Africa that girl babies were dying in higher than expected numbers six months to three years after injection.
CDC director David Satcher admitted in a June 17 LA Times article that a National Institutes of Health (NIH) investigation of the 1990-1991 Los Angeles study found that informed consent regulations had been violated because parents were not told their babies would be injected with an experimental vaccine that had never been licensed by the FDA for use in America. Both Kaiser and the CDC have denied that any of the LA babies were harmed by the high potency EZ vaccine, but did admit that one child died from a bacterial infection they maintain is unrelated to the vaccine.
The high-potency EZ measles experiment began at four major sites in the mid-1980's, including Haiti, Senegal, Guinea Bissau and Mexico. Other trials followed in Cameroon, Gambia, Bangladesh, Togo, Iran, New Guinea, Peru, Rwanda, Sudan, South Africa, Egypt, Philippines, Uzbekistan, Thailand, Zaire and Los Angeles.
Primary funding came from the U.S. Agency for International Development and the World Health Organization (WHO). In Haiti, infants were given the experimental vaccine at 10 to 500 times the usual dose levels. In a June 1996 article in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, Johns Hopkins "researchers" report that infants with the highest antibody to high titer measles vaccine have the most profound immune suppression.
Some of the Infants in both Haiti and Zaire were HIV positive and already enrolled in a long-term HIV study program. They were deliberately included as part of the EZ experiment in order to evaluate the effect of vaccines in HIV-positive infants. When study results were published in late 1993, deaths occurring in the HIV positive babies were left out of the mortality figures. It is unknown exactly how many of the vaccinated HIV babies died, although at least 100 of the Haitian HIV-positive babies were reported dead.
The measles vaccine experiment was stopped two years after the director of one of the African sites warned the WHO and the CDC experiment leaders in April 1990 that African mortality data raised a red flag about the high titer EZ vaccine. His reports were first ignored and then discounted, and he was replaced as a principle investigator. After his mortality data was dismissed as incorrect for more than a year, with support from colleagues at Harvard, he published the mortality data in the British Medical Journal Lancet in October 1991. WHO, faced with the embarrassment of discovery, then called for all the sites to submit mortality data for independent analysis. The CDC has stated that enrollment for the LA Study was halted in October 1991.
In the LA Times article, the CDC's chief Satcher referred to the failure to tell parents in Los Angeles that the SmithKline EZ measles vaccine was experimental as a "little mistake" and not a deliberate attempt to deceive them. Kaiser Permanente maintains that the failure to inform parents was an "administrative oversight." However, the CDC grant announcements in 1989 clearly stated that "the vaccine trials are experimental, developmental test and research work."
Since the early 1980's, WHO, CDC and Johns Hopkins researchers had been working on a way to vaccinate babies by six months of age with measles vaccine. This became even more important in the late 1980's when measles cases started to increase in the United States and around the world with cases atypically occurring in infants under a year in age and in older children. The "one measles shot will make you immune for life" THEORY that had prevailed in medical circles was shattered as it became obvious that antibodies induced by the live virus measles vaccine do not provide permanent immunity like natural antibodies created after recovery from the natural disease [necessary for building the human immune system]. It also became obvious that now babies at special risk for measles infection were under one year old, born to young mothers who had been vaccinated and could not transfer maternal antibodies [wiped out by the vaccine] to protect their babies in the first vulnerable year of life. During the 1989-1991 measles epidemic, the largest increase in measles cases was in infants under one year old.
In a 1990 meeting of the National Vaccine Advisory Committee, there was also discussion that the "unexpected" rise in measles cases raised the question of whether, during the previous two decades of mass vaccination, the wild measles virus had evolved into a more deadly strain. But, in January 1991, the NVAC issued a White Paper to Congress that blamed the "measles epidemic" not on the failure of the measles vaccine and the mass campaign, but "on the failure to deliver vaccine to vulnerable preschool children on schedule." Shortly afterwards, the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that "all American children should get a second dose of measles vaccine at kindergarten or at junior high school entry."
The biggest "problem" for public health officials "vaccinating" large populations of very young infants is that some of the infants have maternal antibodies to protect them from measles in the very first year of life. These infants "do not respond" to the vaccine until they are older when maternal antibody levels have dropped. This is why the measles vaccine licensed for use in America is recommended to be routinely given to children at 15 months of age or older "in order to maximize chances" for a vaccine-induced antibody response. This is also why EZ vaccine researchers used a high dosage in the experimental vaccine -- to see how well it will overcome and overrule maternal antibodies. In an article published in the January 1996 issue of Pediatrics by the CDC, Johns Hopkins and Kaiser officials, "this will not be a problem in the future" because "in the future all mothers will have been vaccinated and won't have maternal antibodies to give to their infants, and so all babies will be candidates for measles vaccination after birth." This means that public health officials plan to use mass vaccination to eliminate natural measles antibodies from the human race, which are permanent, and replace them with vaccine-induced antibodies, which are temporary. Repeated doses of the vaccine will be then given from birth to "try to keep vaccine anti-bodies high" in everyone.
The National Vaccine Information Center and the Washington Office on Haiti have issued a joint request under the Freedom of Information Act for all government data on the EZ measles vaccine experiments in the U.S. and the Third World. In Los Angeles, the African-American community has founded a group called Los Angeles Coalition Against Racist Child Experimentation, and is networking with NVIC and the Washington Office on Haiti. Said, NVIC co-founder Barbara Fisher, "The parents were not told that the measles vaccine can cause brain inflammation and death. It is just another example of the willingness of vaccine researchers and public health officials to sacrifice the lives of individuals without their consent because they have decided that "the end justifies the means."
Worth Cooley-Post, a biomedical research consultant, added, "Haiti has been an offshore laboratory for drug research for decades. What is really frightening about this experiment is that WHO was ready to buy 250,000,000 doses of EZ for Third World babies. Millions would have died, but nobody would have realized that the vaccine was to blame because between six months to three years would pass before the children would die. The researcher who found the mortality problem had a very hard time convincing the other researchers to take it seriously. And, the vaccine was slated for use on inner city infants in the United States. We came very close to a huge, hidden disaster."
In a classic example of how a drug company search for a new market for a new vaccine creates that market with the help of the CDC, black children in Memphis, Tennessee, "eligible" for free vaccines under the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program, are being targeted for mandatory vaccination with the newly licensed high-potency pediatric hepatitis A vaccine. A group of Memphis parents, protesting the forced injection of black children without informed consent, have filed a $500 million lawsuit against vaccine maker SmithKline Beecham, the county health department and the school board, citing civil and religious rights violations.
In February 1985, the FDA gave the nod to SmithKline Beecham to market "Havrix," the first adult and pediatric hepatitis A vaccine for use in America. Six months after the license was issued, former U.S. Surgeon General Everett "fluoridate them till they drool" Koop announced a "public education campaign on "the risks of hepatitis A" and the need for Americans who may come in contact with contaminated food and water to get the vaccine. But, is Hepatitis A a serious condition? It is a viral disease, which in its natural form infects some 10 million people worldwide, with only about 140,000 cases in the United States. It causes jaundice, diarrhea, fatigue, appetite loss and stomach pain, but, with proper medical care., most people recover quite completely and are left permanently immune to the virus thereafter.
In January 1996, SmithKline Beecham sent lobbyists to Tennessee and persuaded [$] state legislators to support introduction of a bill in the State House that would mandate that children "be fully vaccinated against hepatitis A" before being allowed to attend kindergarten, nursery school, daycare or Head Start in counties with "epidemics" of hepatitis A. In the bill, an "epidemic" was defined as 50 cases per 100,000 people . At this point, SmithKline Beecham was trying to get another "license" from the FDA to market high-potency hepatitis A vaccine for children between two and 18 years old.
On March 9, 1996, the Memphis City School System sent out a memo to "selected principals" of 14 middle, junior high and high schools in Shelby County stating that "the County Health Department has determined that the Hepatitis A epidemic (which did not exist) has not been stemmed," and that, in cooperation with the health department, "no student, aged 17 or under, will be allowed to continue enrollment without documentation of receipt of the Hepatitis A shot. This also applies to graduating seniors." All but two of the targeted 14 schools contain a majority of minority students. In the two predominantly white schools, only those black students bused into those schools were required to get the vaccines. On April 2, 1996, SmithKline Beecham announced the FDA had licensed their higher potency pediatric hepatitis A vaccine.
In mid-April 1996, when school officials decided to enforce the new "vaccination" requirement, a group of black students protested, asking why only black children between the ages of two and 18 were being targeted, and why cafeteria workers handling food and other adults were not being requested to be vaccinated. They also protested the fact that the health department and school officials were picking and choosing which religions the children could belong to in order to qualify for religious exemptions to vaccination. The parents reported that no information was given to the students or parents describing possible adverse reactions, contraindications or how to report reactions.
When it became obvious that health department and school officials were not going to allow parents the right to informed consent to "vaccination" of their children. the protesting parents filed a $500 million lawsuit against SmithKline Beecham, the health department and school board on April 29, 1996, and eventually filed for several temporary restraining orders in federal court on grounds of civil rights and religious freedom violations. Later, a federal judge issued several orders stating that all Shelby County children, not just black children, had to get hepatitis A vaccine and that parents had the right to be advised of their right to religious exemption. In mid May 1996, another memo from the school system went out to principals stating that "high schools will place a priority on tracking down every single senior needing the vaccine" and barring students from graduation or summer school if they have not been vaccinated or obtained an approved exemption.
Finally, in May 1996, the Governor of Tennessee signed a bill mandating the vaccine in targeted communities in the state. By the second week in June 1996, teens were coming forward with reports of adverse reactions to the injections. Some students reported that school officials signed their "consent to vaccinate" forms and some students forged their parents signatures after feeling pressure from school officials to get injected. On June 22 and 29, 1996, the protesting parents stood outside community centers where other parents were lining up with their children, who qualify for VFC to get free HepA "vaccinations," and handed out literature about side effects and contraindications, so that parents would be informed.
SmithKline Beecham's product insert for Havrix lists a variety of reported adverse effects, including:
Headache, denoted neurological stress
Fatigue, Nausea, Fever and Swelling
Diarrhea, Vomiting, Jaundice
Convulsions, encephalopathy, neuropathy
Multiple Sclerosis and, more serious conditions.
The insert states that Havrix "has not been evaluated for carcinogenic and mutagenic potential, nor has it been evaluated for impairment of fertility." The insert continues, "It is also not known whether Havrix can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman, or can affect reproductive capacity" and "At present the duration of protection afforded by Havrix has not been established."

Vaccine Police Force Mother to Have Child Injected
According to a recent report from the National Vaccine Information Center, a single mother living in New Hampshire reported that a policewoman, a detective and state social service worker showed up unannounced at her home armed with a court order and forced her to submit her son to a DPT injection. The forced injection came after she had taken her son to the emergency room a few days earlier for a minor burn from a wood stove, and had mentioned that her son had never received any vaccines. The hospital notified state health authorities. A nurse at the hospital had insisted that her son get a tetanus injection and an injection of immune globulin (even though it was not medically indicated because there was no puncture). When the group came to the woman's house, a social worker held down the child while a nurse injected him with DPT toxoid. For several days after the medical assault on her child, the child was hyperactive, "acted like a different child," could not sleep at night, and within a week he had a fever and was ill. This child had previously been ill twice in his life.
The woman, Terra Newton, commented, "I feel like I have been violated and that I am living in a police state. If it is not my constitutional right to protect my son from this kind of violence, then you might as well throw the constitution out the window." She is looking for a lawyer to represent her. "I want to take this as far as I can legally go. This is America, not Communist China."
Wisconsin Teen Jailed for Not Getting His "Shot"
In late April 1996, a 16-year-old Milwaukee, Wisconsin boy was handcuffed, stripped and jailed overnight because he had not shown public school or county health officials proof that he had gotten a second MMR [measles-mumps-rubella] shot. The busy mother of Jacob Kallas, a divorced mother of five who owns her own business and ignored repeated court orders to provide her son's school with proof of vaccination, was quoted in an AP story as saying, "I didn't realize we were in such a police state. We're talking about a really good kid who's freaking out because he's in jail." Jacob was reportedly stopped by police while driving his mother's van, which had expired plates. When a routine police check found he was wanted on a juvenile warrant [for failure to vaccinate] issued by Ozaukee County, he was thrown in jail and taken in shackles to court the next morning before finally being released to his mother.
