Senate Bill 3 gives government a license to kill us all

The Idaho Observer

Your lives are in jeopardy. Your children’s lives are in jeopardy. What is the source of this threat? Senate Bill 3 (S. 3), the Protecting America in the War on Terror Act of 2005.

The Bill
S. 3 appears to be a virtual wish list for the pharmaceutical industry, including provisions for tax credits on vaccine research and development; building and facilities remodeling incentives; and bans on our ability to access vital vaccine information. It gives unprecedented liability protection to the entire pharmaceutical industry for vaccine injuries; and it provides no incentive for “quality” control of vaccines…. No “safety” incentives to reduce or eliminate potential vaccine or medication-induced injuries.

In fact, this bill even creates a seven-member commission made up mostly of drug industry and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) employees who are empowered to regulate themselves.

The sponsors of S. 3 are seeking to do tort reform, Vaccine Injury Compensation Act (VICA) reform, and vaccine development all under the Protecting America in the War on Terror Act of 2005. These are three “big picture” issues that deserve their own separate bill and attention.

Senators Bill Frist and Judd Gregg introduced S. 3 in the Senate Finance Committee and can now be viewed in its entirety at

A 1991 memo showed Merck knew but did not care
One of the provisions in S. 3 would provide drug makers with liability protection against civil actions involving FDA-approved products. On February 8, 2005, The Los Angeles Times reported that a 1991 memo showed that drug giant Merck did not act even though Merck knew of the likely danger to the nation’s children from the accumulation of thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative used in vaccines. The memo, issued by Merck, said that 6-month old children who received their shots on schedule would get a mercury dose of up to 87 times higher than guidelines for the maximum daily consumption of mercury from fish.

A full disclosure of Merck's findings in 1991 may have prevented millions of children from dangerous exposure to mercury, a known neurotoxin. Numerous studies, including a first-phase study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), have linked the mercury-based preservative to neurodevelopmental disorders including autism. According to the CDC, autism now affects 1 in 166 children. Some reports cite that the rise in autism and ADHD correlates with the increase of thimerosal-containing vaccines added to the recommended vaccine schedule that Merck knew about almost 15 years ago.

The memo was issued eight years before the FDA acknowledged the overuse of mercury in vaccines and goes on to discuss safety concerns, and at one time states that the large use of mercury in their vaccines presents a “perception of hazard.”

S.3 prohibits state bans
S. 3 would prevent states from legislating bans for the existence of mercury in vaccines. Several parents and advocacy groups have been fighting for the removal of mercury in vaccines. California and Iowa passed bans in 2004. If passed, not only would the bill remove states' rights, but it would further protect pharmaceutical companies like Merck from vaccine-related litigation. "Because drug companies like Merck are so easily protected by certain friends on the Hill, they have no incentive to reveal such findings or right the wrong that's been done," says parent Wendy Fournier. “It is astounding that memos like this remain hidden and corporations that are supposed to be the benchmark of safety, end up covering up the dangers."

S.3 is the fifth piece of legislation Senator Frist has tried to pass on behalf of vaccine-makers. Parents believe that the bill, and any vaccine-oriented legislation introduced by Frist, will impede efforts to uncover even more important documents that could ultimately explain what happened to millions of American children. According to the website, a public service watchdog, Senator Frist has received hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from pharmaceutical companies since 1997. 

In a section entitled “Vaccine Injury Compensation and Litigation Reform,” the S. 3 states,

(a) FINDINGS- Congress finds that--

(1) there are shortcomings in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and loopholes in that program that have been exploited in a manner that has contributed to a decline in the availability of vaccines generally in the United States and a decline in the number of manufacturers able to supply vaccines; and

(2) the condition described in paragraph (1) presents a barrier to the development of vaccines needed for bioterror countermeasures.

(b) RECOMMENDATIONS- After considering recent changes in the litigation environment with respect to vaccines as well as recent scientific evidence and reports by the Institute of Medicine and others with respect to the safety of vaccines and their components and ingredients, the Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Attorney General shall, not later than 6 months after the date of enactment of this Act, jointly submit recommendations to the appropriate committees of Congress concerning necessary modifications to the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and Federal rules regarding litigation involving vaccines.

Two men with absolute power over vaccines and our children’s lives
Based on the May 18, 2004 report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM), the bill gives two men in America – the Attorney General and the Secretary of HHS – the authority to change the litigation rules of vaccine-injuries in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The autism advocacy community knows that the IOM report was based upon flawed studies, but the Attorney General and the HHS Secretary will be taking the report as gospel and applying what the IOM said to new rules that will apply to litigation of vaccine cases in the NVICP. Parents will have no recourse when attempting to prove that their child’s injuries were caused by vaccines. It is a vicious cycle: pharmaceutical companies have money to fund flawed studies, and then agency panels are convened at politically-convenient times to make significant life-altering determinations based upon faulty studies.

S.3 designed to block future lawsuits
According to the new bill's ambiguous language, S.3 will address "shortcomings in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and loopholes in that program that have been exploited in a manner that has contributed to a decline in the availability of vaccines generally in the United States and a decline in the number of manufacturers able to supply vaccines." This same language in past bills often developed into more specific language designed to block thimerosal-related lawsuits:

  • In May 2002, Senator Frist introduced legislation that protected drug companies from thimerosal-related lawsuits. Parents acted and the bill died.

  • In November 2002, a provision that would prohibit lawsuits against Eli Lilly, the maker of mercury-based thimerosal used in vaccines, was tiptoed into the Homeland Security Bill causing a "whodunit" scandal. Parents and legislators had the provision repealed.

  • In March 2003, Senator Frist introduced the same legislative language as part of the BioShield Bill. The provision was removed after parents rallied in D.C.

  • In April 2003, Senator Frist and Senator Judd Gregg worked with Senator Chris Dodd on a compromise to revamp the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. When the compromise leaned too much in favor of our children, Frist and Gregg pulled out.

  • In February, 2004, Senator Frist introduced the Healthy Women and Healthy Babies Access to Care which prohibited lawsuits against any FDA-approved product or device including thimerosal-containing immunoglobulin products given to pregnant women with the Rh factor. According to past reports from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), vaccine manufacturers have not left the market for fear of liability; rather, they have become smaller in number due to mergers and acquisitions.

For years, Frist and Gregg have introduced legislation under the guise of protecting America and drug companies from frivolous lawsuits. Parents say it's simply a shameful attempt to keep their pharma friends free of all liability.

Today we are witnessing several thimerosal lawsuits that have moved forward in civil court. Trials are beginning this year. Blocking these lawsuits would interfere with already successful efforts to see what drug companies knew about the harmful effects of mercury in vaccines. "It would be criminal to try and stop parents from learning valuable information about the cause of their child's illness," says one mother from Missouri.

Another parent agreed, saying, "Vioxx caused heart attacks and strokes. Harmful effects of SSRIs [anti-depressants]were swept under the rug. Thimerosal causes autism. The system is broken. In my opinion, Frist and Gregg continue to create an escape route for drug companies that have no incentive to put health before profit."

If S. 3 passes into law, not only will states not be allowed to warn the public about toxic vaccine ingredients, but there will be no right to legal redress for American citizens debilitated by FDA-approved drugs, devices, or vaccines.

Disturbing provisions
Here are some more key troubling provisions of S. 3:

  • Providing drug and vaccine makers with unprecedented, total liability protection against civil actions involving FDA-approved products. This means that lawsuits involved with Vioxx, Celebrex, medical devices, and now potentially Adderall would have no legal recourse.

  • Expanding the definition of ‘countermeasure’ to include any drug or device the FDA regulates, with specific mention of infectious diseases.

  • Repealing certain sunshine laws that protect us from favoritism in awarding contracts as well as creating secret meetings. In this way the government would not have to provide information to the public, even under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), about meetings, policy decisions, and contracts.

  • Creating “Global Harmonization.” CDC employees created the Brighton Collaboration to work on the international level in setting research and policy guidelines. If this bill passes, their international activities could be used to circumvent U.S. laws.

  • Overriding already passed state legislation to ban thimerosal from vaccines and prohibit similar bans in other states.

  • Restricting informed consent regarding toxic components of FDA-approved drugs and vaccines.

  • Forcing families into federal court for vaccine-related damages that fall outside the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, in effect usurping states’ rights.

  • Establishing a seven-member “Commission” to regulate the vaccine industry thus allowing drug manufacturers to regulate themselves at the expense of consumer safety.

  • Bestowing significant tax credits upon pharmaceutical companies for purchase and/or refurbishment of manufacturing facilities.

  • Extending patents on existing drugs, thereby preventing generic drugs from entering the market. This alone will give $billions to the industry each year.


If an "emergency" is declared by the Secretary of Health and Human Services,
there will be NO CHALLENGE. There is NO concrete triggering mechanism....
This is at someone's whim. There is NO hard and fast rule as to what could
trigger an epidemic or emergency. 

Every countermeasure against terrorism is put under an umbrella that makes it legal.

If vaccines are mandated as "countermeasures," there is unprecedented protection for the vaccine manufacturers, and no protection for the vaccine-injured.

It is unprecedented for a non-elected individual to have such sweeping power over matters affecting the lives of all Americans.


S. 3 is currently in the Finance Committee but the HELP Committee has traditionally dealt with these issues. The Chairman of the HELP Committee, Senator Enzi, has stated this past week that the HELP Committee will be addressing S. 3 soon. So, while your fax and phone calls are imperative to the Finance Committee right now, the HELP Committee should also be made aware of your concerns. We must ALL do our part to stop S. 3 in its tracks. It is imperative that we prevail in this ongoing war between our lives and the powerful pharmaceutical lobbyists.

Let them know how you feel
Here is a sample letter that you can customize and personalize.

Dear Senator ___________: Please do not pass Senate Bill S.3. Bill S. 3 will take away children’s and Americans’ rights to receive just compensation for injuries sustained through vaccines and other drugs.  This bill, called the Protecting America in the War on Terror Act of 2005, is disguised as legislation that is supposed to help families such as mine.  The bill appears to benefit only the pharmaceutical industry—and not our children.

The bill references the Institute of Medicine as a reliable source of information regarding the vaccine component Thimerosal. At the February 2004 Immunization Safety Committee meeting, renowned independent researchers confirmed through sound science that Thimerosal causes autism and other neurological disorders. The IOM ignored these findings, proving themselves to be an unreliable source.

Please understand that families who are seeking restitution for vaccine-injured children are not engaged in "frivolous" lawsuits.  They are only seeking what is fair for their kids. These parents believed the IOM regarding the safety of vaccines, and now their children are suffering.

I am one of the hundreds of thousands of citizens across this country who will be watching very closely how this bill is handled. I ask that you oppose this legislation for the sake of our children.

Subject: Senate Bill 3; Legislating Away Basic Rights

Please read through and use the sample letter provided to communicate your message to the senators listed in this email.



Dear Parent/Advocate:

Please look closely at US Senate Bill 3. A copy of the bill is available at

Under the guise of "Protecting America in the War on Terror" US Senators Gregg, Frist, Sessions, DeWine, Allen, Santorum, McConnell, and DeMint have introduced S. 3 which calls for many sweeping changes in pharmaceutical product liability, vaccine regulation, policy, research and The Vaccine Injury Compensation Act. This directly impacts those families whose children have suffered adverse vaccine reactions, Gulf War Veterans, and any other veteran who suffers from adverse reactions from the multiple vaccines given (remember the ill-fated anthrax vaccine and small-pox vaccines).

The most recent bill introduced in the U.S. Senate (S. 3) is aimed at liability protection of drugs and vaccines and to prevent state legislation to ban Thimerosal (mercury) in vaccines. This bill is worse than the Eli Lilly provision of the Homeland Security Act and is a direct "gift" to the pharmaceutical companies. The pharmaceutical industry gave almost $45 million in campaign contributions for Presidential and Congressional elections since 2002 ( and the health care/pharmaceutical industry has over 600 lobbyists in Washington, D.C. alone. If constituents do not weigh in on this horrendous bill, the American people will suffer; having their civil rights violated and state autonomy will be compromised. It is an insult to every state elected official and every American.

This bill is being "fast-tracked" and is already on the agenda at the National Vaccine Advisory Committee meeting, scheduled for February 8, 2005 at 10:45 am:

It would also severely limit the public access to any information regarding vaccine research, vaccine production, vaccine regulations, including, but not limited to meetings about vaccines and "countermeasures" for pandemics, epidemics, etc. This bill places severe restrictions on FOIA and will impact your ability to find out about drug/vaccine safety, regulation and policy. The last thing this country needs is to give government the ability to hold more "closed" meetings without accountability to the media/public.

Furthermore, Sec. 761 (a)(1) would preempt any state legislation regulating vaccines. It would preempt State authority and legislation dealing with vaccines or vaccines components, such as Thimerosal (mercury). Missouri currently has three bills pending to ban mercury (Thimerosal) in vaccines. They are Missouri SB 49, SB74 and HB 131. The States of Iowa and California have already banned mercury in vaccines yet this bill will preempt such legislation forcing states to allow vaccine manufacturers to continue using toxic levels of mercury in vaccines (in excess of Federal EPA safety guidelines). Numerous other states are pursuing similar legislation such as Maryland, Nebraska, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington. Various other states are also planning to introduce legislation banning mercury in vaccines within the next few weeks/months, such as Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina, Michigan, Massachusetts and Minnesota.

This horrendous piece of Federal legislation would even prohibit the warning or informed consent provisions for drugs, vaccines and biologics. Additionally, this bill would prohibit punitive damages and cap compensatory damages against any pharmaceutical company. This takes the saying "to the victor goes the spoils" to a whole new and ominous level. If the FDA approves it, the company making it is protected from liability. We have all seen how attentive the FDA has been to protect Americans from dangerous drugs such as Vioxx.

This cleverly crafted legislation includes something nearly every American will understandably want to support: raising the death gratuity for families of soldiers killed in Iraq from $12,000 to $100,000 and increases other military benefits. Including an unrelated but popular provision that should stand alone legislatively seeks only to cloud the issues addressed in the major portion of this bill's language. Every American supports increased benefits for our soldiers and their families and that includes us. As parents and loyal Americans, however, we believe that S. 3 has been carefully crafted to unfairly paint parents who seek justice for vaccine injured children into a political corner. Similar to the legislative sleight of hand employed in the Homeland Security Bill fiasco in 2002 the sponsors of S.3 are manipulating the political process by tying domestic programs affecting every American's health and safety to unrelated "anti-terrorism" programs. In this way they are attempting to make legitimate opposition to S. 3 politically unacceptable.

We question why politically popular legislation supporting our troops is tied to a bill with far-reaching provisions that affect and the safety of vaccines given to millions of American children. Let's not confuse the issues. We believe that by casting the vaccine safety provisions in the language of fighting terrorism (epidemic "countermeasures" is S.3's new code word for "vaccines"--this is truly Orwellian doublespeak) the American people are being misled about S.3's impact on vaccine safety programs. Let's deal with one thing at a time. Taking away the right of states to protect their citizens from dangerous vaccine components and drugs like Vioxx and Paxil does not translate into protecting our children--from terrorism or anything else. All it does is give control of these matters--vaccines and drugs--to a few powerful people who operate behind closed doors. The vaccine safety provisions are pharma support positions, plain and simple, and are not necessary for bio-terror defense, at least not in this form.

It would also overhaul The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to the detriment of children and families. Other parts of this legislation are extremely troublesome as well and we have included a copy in pdf format for your review. This is not a benign bill--this goes directly to counter state and parental efforts to protect children from vaccine injuries.

Read a few excerpts below. If this bill is as concerning to you as it is to other parents and many members of the medical community, please contact all members of the US Senate, particularly your Senators and members of the US Senate Finance Committee (see their contact info below). This is not anti-terrorism--this is Federalism gone wild.

Sample letter that Dewey Duffel of VacLib sent -- You are welcome to use and/or modify. :-)

Dear Senator Baucus

I see that you are on the Finance Committee to which has recently been referred the Senate Bill #3, "Protecting America in the War on Terror Act of 2005."

Looking at the many sections of S3 which refer to drugs and vaccines points out that S3 has little or nothing to do with homeland security, unless your vision of America is 'that which is good for the profits of pharmaceutical companies is good for the American people'.

I do not believe in such a vision for the USA and therefore ask you to vote NO on S3.

A few facts about S3:

Sec. 125. 'Accelerated Approval of Countermeasures or Vaccines' does not require any scientific justification.

Sec. 761/762. preempts state legislation on warnings about pharmaceutical products.

Ch 1/Sec. 45L. (Tax Credits) (A) substituting 'qualified vaccine research' for 'qualified research'. This is a totally unnecessary incentive which will only result in poorer health, less protection and a heavier tax burden for US citizens. (same with Ch. 3, Sec. 151.)

Vaccines with harmful side effects have been foisted on the American public for decades. These products have caused hundreds of thousands of serious diseases (I.E. most Autism cases and much of ADD, etc.) The public is awakening to its right to legal redress. Yet the creators of S.3 falsely state this above fact as: " Chapter 2--Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. ... (1) there are shortcomings in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and loopholes in that program that have been exploited in a manner that has contributed to a decline in the availability of vaccines generally in the United States and a decline in the number of manufacturers able to supply vaccines; and (2) the condition described in paragraph (1) presents a barrier to the development of vaccines needed for bioterror countermeasures."

The real barrier to development of vaccines is that the public is rapidly becoming aware that vaccines are not safe and question their effectiveness and necessity.

In summary, S.3 is not designed to improve US security but is a profit driven bill which needs to be voted against.

Thank you for your consideration, Dewey Duffel

Additional bulleted points about Senate Bill 3 --


Parents and Guardians;

As more information trickles in about Bill S.3, Frist's latest and most comprehensive attempt to remove children's rights, it is becoming clear they are getting very creative in their ways to push S.3 through.

If you didn't see our initial action alert about S.3, we feel it is important to send out a reminder as well as an update.


Here are some keypoints to S.3. Keep in mind that because this is a VICA/Vaccine Bill introduced under the guise of thwarting terrorist threats, there is "warm and fuzzy language" to sway potential supporters. For example, S.3 raises the death benefit for families of fallen soldiers. This, of course, is needed, but it has NOTHING to do with our children! Again, we need your help!

  • - S.3 preempts state legislation on vaccines and more.

  • - S.3 effectively repeals CA and IA mercury-ban bills and stops others in their tracks.

  • - S.3 prevents states from even warning people about, for example, thimerosal.

  • - S.3 gives pharmas defense to claims if FDA approved their drug or vaccine (in other words, more fighting power to stop our claims)

  • - S.3 implements caps of $250 K on non-economic damages, and no punitives

  • - S.3 Controls regulation of vaccine safety and restricts access to information (in other words, sealing documents that contain valuable information about our children's illness)

It would also be a good idea to alert your community through a letter to the editor of your local newspaper.
