Vaccination Liberation's affliation with other organizations
In this article, NVIC is considered to be a vaccine awareness group
concerned with accuracy and full disclosure versus groups (such as VacLib)
that are militantly opposed to vaccines.
NVIC director Kathi Williams is quoted in this article as saying, Most
parents I talk to do decide to immunize, and we're all for that. We feel
that if people are adequately informed of the safety factors and warning
signs to watch for, it would cut the vaccine injury rate by 50 percent.
Vaccination Liberation, on the other hand, would like to cut the vaccine
injury rate by 100 percent by educating the masses as to the faulty
premises upon which the vaccine paradigm is based, the basis of natural
and providing resources on how we can immunize without vaccines.
- Questions Answered Regarding
- The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC)
- and Vaccination Liberation
- Many of you have inquired about our relationship with NVIC. In fact,
some of you have not joined our organization since you have assumed that
Vaccination Liberation is an NVIC chapter and we will benefit when you
send your annual dues to NVIC. In order to clear up any misconceptions
regarding our relationship with NVIC, answers to the most common
questions are below:
- Q: Is Vaccination Liberation an NVIC chapter or affiliated with NVIC
in some way?
- A: Vaccination Liberation chooses to pay annual dues to NVIC because
we believe in the educational work NVIC performs. However, NVIC has not
joined our organization nor supports our efforts financially. Many of
VacLib's members are also members of NVIC unifying our support of their
efforts. In the Winter of 1999/2000 Ingri Cassel approached Kathi
Williams, director of NVIC, about becoming the Idaho chapter of NVIC,
noting that we were 70 members strong and would be an asset to NVIC.
Kathi replied that one of the criteria for chapter leaders was that they
not be anti-vaccination but pro-choice. This represented a philosophical
difference between NVIC and Vaccination Liberation, propelling our Idaho
Chapter of Vaccination Liberation to launch an effective national
grassroots association. Our belief is that once someone is thoroughly
educated on the topic of vaccines, they would never let anyone inject
themselves or their children with such poisonous, immune system
depressing substances. Our belief is more than pro-choice ; it is truly
- Q: How does Vaccination Liberation differ from NVIC?
- A: Vaccination Liberation means just what our name implies: freedom
from the vaccination mindset that blindly believes an injection of
substances known to be toxic can enhance the body s ability to ward off
infectious diseases. We advocate the naturopathic paradigm of health and
disease, and encourage our membership to explore non-conventional health
care modalities. Please view our mission statement and explanation of
Vaccination Liberation on our website
- NVIC, on the other hand, honors everyone's
right to choose whatever health care modality best fits their mindset. It
is for this reason that we often refer people who are looking for a safer
vaccine , or single antigen vaccine such as tetanus or measles, directly
to NVIC. Although our organizations differ in many ways, we can work
together and compliment each other's mission statements.
- NVIC, located in Virginia near our nation's
capital, has been involved in developing our current national vaccination
policies and is represented on the Advisory Committee on Immunization
Practices (ACIP). NVIC's focus is to be the leading watchdog consumer
advocate group at the top of the pyramid representing the consumer's cry
for vaccine safety.
- Vaccination Liberation considers itself an
activistic organization as well as an educational organization. VacLib
holds monthly meetings and semi-annual workshops, engages in mass
dissemination of literature, sends letters to newspaper editors, provides
email and phone support, and preserves our right to abstain from this
experimental medical procedure by working with local legislators.
- Our website
has a wealth of information for activists to utilize and is considered by
many to be the most comprehensive website on vaccines available. We believe
that our nation's vaccine policies will not change until more than 50
percent of the population has become aware of the real dangers of vaccines
and are willing to protect the most fundamental of human rights: the right
to decide what will or will NOT be injected into one's body.
- Q: Why was Vaccination Liberation founder Walene James opposed to the
1986 Vaccine Injury Compensation Act that NVIC was supportive of?
- A: Before passage of the national Vaccine Injury Compensation Act in
1986, vaccine safety was not a priority and, as a result, vaccine
manufacturers were flooded with lawsuits from families of vaccine-injured
children. The expense incurred from covering the numerous lawsuits forced
pharmaceutical companies to make a choice: make vaccines safe (an
impossibility), cease production of vaccines, increase cost of vaccines, or
shift liability. The passage of the national Vaccine Injury Compensation
Act has given the pharmaceutical industry total immunity from lawsuits. If
this Act were repealed, the pharmaceutical industry would be forced to
assume accountability for their damaging vaccine products, or remove
themselves from the vaccine marketplace.
- Q: Is Vaccination Liberation supportive of the development of safer
- A: We are opposed to all vaccines and believe that the concept of
developing a safer vaccine is akin to developing a safer gun to play
Russian roulette with. We are also opposed to our government s exclusive
support of the allopathic health care model. We support and promote
non-invasive health care modalities such as chiropractic, naturopathic,
homeopathic and acupressure.
- Q: It often appears that NVIC is pro-vaccine rather than pro-choice.
