I was really looking forward to marching but became sick the night before and ended up staying home in bed...wishing that I was there in my green shirt holding up a picture of Matthew. I want to thank the 8,500+ people who rallied to demand that our government take the neuro-toxins out of our children's vaccines. Toxins such as mercury (thimerosal is still in 11 FDA-approved shots), aluminum, ether, antifreeze, formaldehyde...the list goes on & on.
For the record, I am not anti-vaccine, just anti-the poisons they have in them and -the schedule that is pushed on unknowing parents (children receive 36 shots by the time they are 3 years old). Before Matthew was diagnosed with autism, I had no idea these toxins were in his shots. IF I had known, I would have used an alternate (delayed) vax schedule with one shot at a time. I also would NOT have given him Tylenol before and after each vaccination (as our peds advised) b/c acetaminophen reduces glutathione which the body needs to detox.
Here are a few links with news coverage and a blog with some excellent pictures from the rally. Please take a moment to look at them...
