Do vaccines "Cause" autism?
Updated: Oct 26, 2023
The following is an editorial written by Connie Johnson, MVC Media Director.
Recently, Michigan for Vaccine Choice presented the book, "I'm Unvaccinated and That's Ok" to several libraries in SE Michigan.
One librarian responded that the link between vaccines and autism had been "debunked." Carrie, the volunteer who spearheaded the library effort, took the opportunity to educate the librarian with her brilliant response.
We wanted to share this response...
The United States Vaccine Court also known as NVICP (the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program) has conceded that at least two autism cases were caused by vaccines.
The first ever case was Hannah Poling. At that time of this CBS article about Hannah's case from 2010, there were about 4,800 other cases that were pending in Vaccine Court, where the parents claimed the vaccine or vaccines caused their children's autism. All of these cases ended up being thrown out after Hannah's case as the criteria on the Vaccine Injury Table was changed, making it impossible to sue the Vaccine Court for vaccine injured induced autism. There also is only a 3-year statutory limit to sue.
Most parents and laypeople are not aware of the Vaccine Court, nor do they know how to report a vaccine injury through VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System). Heck, most doctors and nurses don't know about this, even though they are technically required to file whenever they see a strong association between getting vaccinated and having an adverse event.
But in Hannah's case, the government acknowledged that the vaccine injury resulted in autism, while denying the vaccine injury caused it. This is nothing more than semantics.
Another case is Noah Bridges.
Noah's mother, Sarah Bridges, wrote the book, "A Bad Reaction: A Memoir."
Sarah's other son, Porter, produced a 3-minute video about Noah's Vaccine Court case here: https://www.facebook.com/100000685786215/videos/1278978592134988/
It is amazing that it is still on Facebook. Perhaps this is because it was a US Vaccine Court case that conceded that the vaccine or vaccines caused his autism.
The HRSA (Health Resources & Services Administration) and the CDC admit that vaccines do cause encephalitis (brain swelling) but somehow, they are reluctant to publicly say they cause autism.
A majority of severe autistic cases suffer from chronic encephalitis, so it only makes sense that if vaccines can cause encephalitis, then it would also cause autism.
Dr. James Neuenschwander has a clinical practice in Ann Arbor where most of his patients are vaccine injured and many of them have autism. Through his own clinical experience, he has observed that vaccines can and do cause autism.
I just want to put this in perspective. This is a corrupt or at least a wrongheaded system that, hopefully, someday will be corrected. The censoring is a massive component of this corruption. And according to our own government, vaccines do cause autism.
The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act took place back in 1986 because there were many lawsuits against the vaccine makers, and they were claiming that they would not be able to continue to manufacture vaccines due to the lawsuits.
At the time thousands upon thousands of people, particularly parents, were claiming how harmful the vaccines were to their children, so how in the world can they get any safer if the vaccine manufacturers no longer have liability? They don't even have to advertise, the government does it for them. Yet, they make billions of dollars of profit every year.

A conflict of interest is that there is one agency of government that promotes vaccines and then another that is going against any individual that is trying to claim compensation.
To this day, vaccine makers are not liable for any injuries associated with a vaccine as long as they have been approved by ACIP to then be put on the CDC schedule.
