ABC Network Tonight Vaccine-Autism Connection

Tonight's airing on ABC of it's new show Eli includes reference to a lawsuit claiming that vaccines caused a child's autism. The awareness of this issue in the last two decades has increased almost as exponentially as the incidence of childhood autism and the additiobal doages added onto the childhood vaccination schedule! Of course, the ongoing threats to the vaccine cash cow are enough to cause a huge uproar when the mass media gets involved.

Here's what Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center had to say in the start of her latest email newsletter:

I sighed with recognition when I learned that the leadership of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) had written a letter and issued a press release on Jan. 25 calling on ABC-TV to cancel tomorrow's premiere episode of a fictional drama about a family whose child regresses into autism after vaccination. On the same day, the American Medical Association (AMA) called on ABC to "mitigate the harm this episode may do" such as re-writing the script. The CDC-funded Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) also piled on ABC-TV, urging doctors to put pressure on the network to cancel the broadcast while seven former directors of the CDC maintained in a Jan. 29 March of Dimes press release that "The implication that vaccinations cause autism is irresponsible and counter productive."
