Posted on 09/19/2011 11:58:20 AM PDT by To-Whose-Benefit?
Monday, 19 September 2011 As of June 2011 there have been 68 deaths related to the HPV Gardasil vaccine were reported to VAERS. At the Republican Presidential Candidate debate, Michele Bachmann stepped on a hornet's nest when she strongly criticized Rick Perry for issuing an Executive Order mandating Texas school girls to be vaccinated with Merck's HPV vaccine, Gardasil.
Controversy has swirled around this vaccine since Merck's aggressive unethical marketing tactics were uncovered in 2007. These included pay offs to public officials. See: Merck Lobbies States to MANDATE cervical-cancer vaccine forschoolgirls and Merck Payola Pays Off: Texas Governor Orders STD Vaccine for ALL girls
Bachmann called Perry's use of the Executive Order an abuse of his executive power.
Indeed, mandatory vaccination against HPV is unsupportable HPV is not communicable in a school setting--it is communicated only by sexual contact. The condition Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is present in 50% of the sexually active population. HPV does NOT automatically develop into cancer in the overwhelming majority of the population. HPV is mostly benign--no treatment needed.
Furthermore, early detection of pre-cancerous cervical cells is readily accomplished by routine PAP smears--which sexually active women in the US routinely have. And pre-cancerous cervical condition is eminently treatable.
Therefore, cervical cancer does not pose a major danger for all children--therefore, the risk from the vaccine itself is not justifiable.
Indeed, the Texas legislature had overruled (then) Governor Perry's Executive Order because it was unsupportable.
Bachmann correctly noted that the HPV vaccine poses serious risks of harm: As of June 22, 2011 there have been a total 68 deaths reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) related to Gardasil.
As of June 22, 2011, approximately 35 million doses of Gardasil® were distributed in the U.S. and VAERS received a total of 18,727 of which 8% were deemed serious.
The following HPV-linked injuries have been reported to VAERS (estimated at 1% to 10% of injuries linked to vaccines)
HPV, HPV2, HPV4 U.S. & Foreign
HPV4 U.S. Only
Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
Mental Status Changes
Nuclear magnetic resonance imaging brain abnormal
Bachmann stated that Merck made millions of dollars because of this mandate; and that Governor Perry had received thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from Merck. She also noted that the governors former chief of staff was the chief lobbyist for this drug company. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0911/63329.html#ixzz1YPZbncRy
First among the hornets to attack Bachmann is none other than bioethicist Art Caplan who came to Rick Perry's and Merck's defense.
Ironically, when Rick Perry entered the race for Republican Presidential candidate, on August 15, 2011, he acknowledged in an Iowa radio call-in show his mistake in issuing that Gardasil Executive Order: "I readily stand up and say I made a mistake on that. "
Art Caplan is the director of the Bioethics Center at the University of Pennsylvania, which has beenn criticized for its copious pharmaceutical industry funding. Oblivious to the reports of vaccine-related encephalitis, cognitive disorder, and more, Caplan challenged Bachmann with a $10,000 bet to prove her claim that the vaccine to prevent cervical cancer caused mental retardation.
Mental retardation can be caused by encephalitis, an infection involving inflammation of the brain as well as autoimmune inflammatory diseases involving the central nervous system.
Below, the organization SANE challenges Art Caplan with peer-reviewed published reports of harm from the HPV vaccine.

Subject: Challenge Issued to Republican Presidential Candidate, Michelle Bachmann
S.A.N.E. VAX, INC
Dear Dr. Caplan:
On behalf of the parents of a group of neurologically injured teenage girls after HPV vaccination, we feel obligated to question your bio-ethics as you challenge Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann with a $10,000 bet to prove a claim that a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer caused mental retardation. We represent many parents of teenage girls who have suffered a variety of central nervous system (CNS) dysfunctions, including various degrees of mental retardation (impairment) as a sequelae of Gardasil® vaccination injuries. It is hard to believe that as bioethicist you openly instigate violation of the HIPAA law.
Do you accept the standard medical teaching that mental retardation may be the sequelae of an inflammatory pathology of the brain, namely encephalitis, in the surviving patients1? We do. If you do not, please cite some peer-reviewed, published studies to support your argument.
The SANE Vax team has found seven reports published in various peer-reviewed medical journals, documenting HPV vaccination as the most likely cause of a hitherto poorly understood and probably autoimmune-based inflammatory disease involving the central nervous system, including various parts of the brain 2-8.
The authors, reviewers and editors of these articles all felt that a highly unusual CNS pathology following Gardasil® vaccination needs to be brought to the attention of the worlds medical community because the inflammatory pathology and its pathogenesis cannot be easily explained; it is apparently autoimmune-based.
This letter is to inform you that SANE Vax Inc., representing parents whose daughters have been injured by the Gardasil® vaccination, have reported to the FDA that the currently marketed Gardasil® is probably 100% contaminated by recombinant HPV DNA firmly bound to amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate adjuvant9.
This HPV DNA/aluminum complex may mediate an immunotoxic reaction leading to some of the inflammatory neurodegenerative disorders observed in the Gardasil® victims, similar to the mechanism observed in experimental animals10.
We suggest you visit the CDC HPV Vaccine VAERS Reports site to see the prevalence of various sequelae after the patients recovered from the acute phase of CNS injuries.
Now, SANE Vax Inc. challenges you, Dr. Caplan. Prove the vaccine Gardasil® has prevented a single case of cervical cancer. We have not found such a case in the world literature, or in the published clinical trial materials. The endpoints used for evaluating the efficacy of Gardasil® were largely self-reversible precancerous changes, not true cancer as defined in any pathology textbooks.
At least two proven invasive cervical cancers developed shortly after HPV vaccination have been reported in medical literature. According to the report, one of the young patients had received a full course of HPV vaccination when she was enrolled in a clinical trial for which the subjects must be pre-screened to be cytology-negative before enrollment. The HPV-found in her cancer was HPV-3111, subsequently recognized as a vaccine-relevant genotype due to cross reaction and cross protection.
How would you, Dr. Caplan, justify the vaccination from the standpoint of a bioethicist when the vaccine may have actually accelerated an undetectable precancerous change associated with a vaccine-relevant HPV to a clinical invasive cancer with lymphatic invasion?

excuse me that’s T_H_A_L_I_D_O_M_I_D_E
Or triss. Or MTBE, or ...
What about birth control related deaths? Blood clots huge risk in this method of medicine. I have some friends that have put their daughters on various birth control pills to reduce cramping or normalize menstrual cycles. Additionally, this has been documented to help in preventing breast cancer. But there are risks, should all birth control pills be taken off the market? From my own experience, after starting the pill I developed toxic shock syndrome, was it from the pill or it was from some other source like a tampon? It is easy to manipulate things to fit what you want them to, but people should have more common sense.
It might be helpful to consider just WHO the FDA thinks it’s protecting, too.
What about the cancer patient who wants that experimental drug that is working in Europe but can’t get it here? Do you think this law would help them? Or is it a huge conspiracy where drug companies are out to kill Americans for a buck? Do you know how ridiculous you sound?
This line, which appears at the beginning of the article is designed simply to frighten people.
As of June 22, 2011, approximately 35 million doses of Gardasil® were distributed in the U.S. . . .
Without the context provided in the second line above, which appears 9 lines below the first line above, the reader is left to generate for themselves that this vaccine is sinister at best. It's amazing to me how easy it is to manipulate information to obtain the public response desired.
” It’s amazing to me how easy it is to manipulate information to obtain the public response desired.”
Yes it is. Just like those 68, FDA Safe & Effective Deaths don’t appear to unduly Bother some whose own child isn’t Among those “Well, that’s just the Price somebody Else has to have shoved down Their throat by Govt, Progress 68”.
my only question with your post is the word “distributed” that does not necessarily mean given...
“Bachmann called Perry’s use of the Executive Order an abuse of his executive power.”
That was her main message, and why I fear Perry would be a nanny-state president, who would abuse Executive Orders.
“should all birth control pills be taken off the market?”
Pro-life women might not want to use birth control pills.
“”Birth Control” Pills cause early Abortions
By J.T. Finn (updated April 23, 2005)
Physicians across America — and around the world — are now confirming that the Pill, IUDs, Depo-Provera and Norplant cause early abortions.
First, a look at the Pill. Research shows that in many cases the Pill causes early abortions — abortions the mother may not even know she’s having.”
Natural Family Planning, NOT to be confused with the rhythm method, is as effectice as the pill, and doesn’t cause women to have blood clots.
Bachmann called Perrys use of the Executive Order an abuse of his executive power.
That was her main message, and why I fear Perry would be a nanny-state president, who would abuse Executive Orders.”
All 3 Branches have been doing Whatever they felt like doing for far too long, and That is what created the culture of “Oh Well, Whatever” which got us stuck with the One last time.
They all need to be herded back onto the Constitutional Reservation and not given any more Executive Role Models who simply fine tune through Executive Order whenever they deem it expedient.
What if we get another Executive Order scribbler with an R on it next year?
Are they going to write Executive Orders closing down the Depts of Ed & Commerce? Building a border fence & deporting illegals? Getting rid of excessive taxes whether Congress wants it or not?
Or are they just going to grow the behemoth through additional tinkering?
Nanny State Indeed!
“All 3 Branches have been doing Whatever they felt like doing for far too long,..”
Most of them spit on the Constitution, regardless of Party Affiliation, or act like dictators.
If conservatives are afraid to vote their conscience, when we have a president worse than Jimmy Carter, when will they gain some courage?
We desperately need a strong Constitutional Conservative in the White House!
If we don’t get that candidate in the primaries, there are some who are itching for a 3rd party, and then Obama could win.
Its never been in question to those familiar with the data.
Not just Gardasil, but all of the vaccines have that potential. They’re literal death coctails.
>> “but honestly that site is against EVERY vaccine. Im not.” <<
If you study more, you will be.
You read AHRP as AARP and expect it to be considered as credible?
>>If you study more, you will be.<<
Not really. I’ve done a fair amount of studying.
I’m not against DPT or MMR. Although after speaking to friends who have Autistic children, I wouldn’t go for the group shots if I had to do it all over again and certainly time them farther apart.
The rest they can keep.
>> “and VAERS has shown no causation between the vaccine and mental retardation” <<
The causation is the anaerobic nature of vaccines, which can multiply rapidly, depending on how the vaccine is imbedded into the tissue. Hit a blood vessel and it could be fatal.
“there are some who are itching for a 3rd party, and then Obama could win”
Anything’s possible, but what’s eating me is that Obama’s making himself So unpopular that the same R party apparatchiks who tossed the last election by offering us Canvasback McCain will shove someone at us who’s just more business as usual rather than upset the pork wagon.
The bar for defeating Obama is so low already, I fear my own party bosses more than the Dems at this point.
