The USA National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is a crafty federal program to relieve the vaccine industry from liability for extreme vaccine injuries. Most claims have been rejected. But enough claims have been awarded to indicate the government’s secret awareness of the link between a vaccine and autism while publicly denying it.
Some VICP Background
The purported motive when the VICP was created in 1988 was to maintain a stable supply of vaccines. What it actually does is enable vaccine manufacturers to release risky vaccines more quickly without safety concerns by removing them from financial liability.
Though the VICP promoted easier non-adversarial access to vaccine injury victims, as of 2008 two out of three claims were rejected, according to Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC).
Apparently, there was an adversarial dynamic within the federal VICP defending the FDA. The VICP federal court had often rejected claims against FDA approved vaccines. But in 2008, the Georgia State Supreme Court issued the following statement: There is no evidence that “FDA approval alone renders a vaccine unavoidably safe.”
The VICP “Don’t Tell” Policy
Additionally, the feds are protecting the “no link of vaccines to autism” viewpoint held by all alphabet soup health agencies, vaccine industry heads, and pediatricians. But a recent study has revealed that 83 families with autistic children have been “quietly” awarded for vaccine damage over the past two decades by the VICP.
NVIC awards are annual annuities to cover the child’s health expenses. So the possibility of losing the annuity by speaking out is real. An NVIC award is effectively hush money.
Quietly awarded means you win but don’t tell. According to one parent who was awarded but has told, Sarah Bridges, PhD, proper semantics helped win her case. She didn’t use the word autism, though autism destroyed her child.
However, the recently published study by Pace Environmental Law Review reported that most of the 83 cases awarded did mention autistic behavior and even autism. One such case was awarded after the an intelligent and healthy girl went totally autistic after receiving nine vaccinations in one day!
The Pace study, which was not covered by any noteworthy media outlets, had looked into over 1300 cases of brain damage claims from vaccines. So what Sarah Bridges may have implied is that parents have a better chance if they talk seizures, permanent brain damage, etc, while not mentioning autism.
Nevertheless, the toothpaste is out of the tube, according to “SafeMinds” Executive Director Lyn Redwood, RN: “This study (Pace) dramatically shifts the debate on autism and vaccines. The question is no longer, can vaccines cause autism? The answer is clear. Now, we have to ask, How many cases of autism have vaccines caused and how do we prevent new injuries from occurring?”
The Safe Minds website has MSM video clips of three former heads of major government health agencies cautiously conceding autistic reactions to vaccinations. It’s easier to be truthful after retirement.
A high profile crusader for vaccine safety, Robert Kennedy, Jr., has sat in on some vaccine industry board meetings. He angrily asserted that vaccine industry executives are aware of the vaccine toxicity dangers while publicly denying causal connections to autism.
