Autism Assistance Dogs

Autism Assistance Dogs are trained for children and families living with autism. The rise in autism rates is staggering. The evolution of programs geared toward successfully integrating children with autism into routine daily activities includes Autism Assistance Dogs.

Autism Assistance Dogs are trained to enhance the safety of children with autism by acting as an anchor and preventing the child from bolting into unsafe environments such as traffic, bodies of water, etc. Autism Assistance Dogs can also have a calming effect on the child and may improve the child's willingness and ability to communicate and bond.


  • Training generally takes four to six months.


  • When ready for placement with an approved applicant, the trainer travels to the client's home for one-on-one training with the client and all family members.
  • Placement training is generally three to five days in length.

Follow up:

  • Dogs for the Deaf provides follow up training for the life of the team. Follow up training includes guidance and suggestions consisting of verbal contact, written contact, and in home visits.
What does it cost to get an Autism Assistance Dog?

With the exception of a $50.00 application fee, Dogs for the Deaf places Autism Assistance Dogs free of charge to qualified applicants. When an applicant has been approved to receive an Autism Assistance Dog and is ready to be placed on the waiting list, we require a $500.00 Good Faith deposit, which is returned after the person and the Autism Assistance Dog have been together for one year. Once the dog is placed with a person, the client is financially responsible for the on-going care of the dog.

If you would like additional information or an application packet, please contact Dogs for the Deaf, Inc.

New Live Action video shows Planned Parenthood encouraging gender-selective abortion, Medicaid fraud

Hot Air - posted at 8:41 am on May 29, 2012 by Ed Morrissey:

Want to see a real war on women? Not one defined by the opposition to the imposition of a Hubby State and subsidies, but one in which women of the future are systematically eliminated? Live Action went undercover last month at a number of abortion clinics across the nation to expose how the abortion industry assists and even encourages gender-selective abortion, a global trend that has eliminated tens of millions of girls before they ever draw breath outside the womb. The video also shows a Planned Parenthood counselor in Texas explaining to a young mother how to defraud Medicaid:

Published on May 29, 2012 by LiveActionFilms

Sign the petition NOW to stop the killing of girls, just because they are girls!

Over 100 millions girls are missing today. These girls were victims of gendercide. The war on baby girls begins in the womb.

AUSTIN, May 29 -- Today, Live Action released a new undercover video showing a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Austin, TX encouraging a woman to obtain a late-term abortion because she was purportedly carrying a girl and wanted to have a boy. The video is first in a new series titled "Gendercide: Sex-Selection in America," exposing the practice of sex-selective abortion in the United States and how Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry facilitate the selective elimination of baby girls in the womb.

"I see that you're saying that you want to terminate if it's a girl, so are you just wanting to continue the pregnancy in the meantime?" a counselor named "Rebecca" offers the woman, who is purportedly still in her first trimester and cannot be certain about the gender. "The abortion covers you up until 23 weeks," explains Rebecca, "and usually at 5 months is usually (sic) when they detect, you know, whether or not it's a boy or a girl." Doctors agree that the later in term a doctor performs an abortion, the greater the risk of complications.

The Planned Parenthood staffer suggests that the woman get on Medicaid in order to pay for an ultrasound to determine the gender of her baby, even though she plans to use the knowledge for an elective abortion. She also tells the woman to "just continue and try again" for the desired gender after aborting a girl, and adds, "Good luck, and I hope that you do get your boy."

"The search-and-destroy targeting of baby girls through prenatal testing and abortion is a pandemic that is spreading across the globe," notes Lila Rose, founder and president of Live Action. "Research proves that sex-selective abortion has now come to America. The abortion industry, led by Planned Parenthood, is a willing participant."

Six studies in the past four years indicate that there are thousands of "missing girls" in the U.S., many from sex-selective abortion. The U.K., India, Australia, and other countries ban sex-selective abortion, but the U.S., save for three states, does not. On Wednesday, Congress will debate the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act (PRENDA), which would ban sex-selective abortions nationally.
"Planned Parenthood and their ruthless abortion-first mentality is the real 'war on women'," says Rose. "Sex-selective abortion is gender discrimination with lethal consequences for little girls."
The complete, unedited video and transcript can be viewed at, a hub of research and information on sex-selective abortions.

Live Action is a youth led movement dedicated to building a culture of life and ending the human rights abuse of abortion. They use new media to educate the public about the humanity of the unborn and investigative journalism to expose threats against the vulnerable and defenseless.

“This was a multi-state, national investigation demonstrating that this is a widespread problem across our country,” Live Action president Lila Rose told The Daily Caller in an interview Monday.

“First of all, the statistics and studies indicate that we are adding to the growing problem across the world of sex-selective targeting of unborn girls for abortion. We are going to be demonstrating — starting with this video from Texas — that the abortion industry in the United States is aiding and abetting this horrific problem.”

The first in what Live Action says is a series of videotaped incidents exposing American abortion facilities’ willingness to assist in sex-selection abortions took place at a South Austin, Texas Planned Parenthood clinic. In the footage, a Planned Parenthood counselor appears to readily assist and advise a Live Action actor who said she was trying to obtain an abortion if her baby is female.

“In this video, what is astounding is that Rebecca, the Planned Parenthood counselor, starts arranging with the actor about how to get a late-term abortion,” Rose said. “To wait until her pregnancy is so developed that — and using Medicaid for this, using the state to pay for the ultrasound to determine the gender, and then to do a late term abortion if it was a little girl.”

Welcome to the real war on women. This one has real casualties, too. But even if one supports abortion rights for whatever purpose, should taxpayer dollars flow to organizations that offer advice on how to defraud Medicaid?

Memorial Day Weekend Safety Tip Reminders

watermelon lionwatermelon lion

For many families, picnics and backyard barbecues top the list for planned activities on Memorial Day weekend. While enjoying your outdoor festivities here are some tips:

Practice safe grilling habits by keeping charcoal lighter fluid out of young children's reach, as swallowing lighter fluid can lead to serious poisoning for toddlers. When finished using lighter fluid, immediately return it to a storage space that is up high, out of sight and out of reach – preferably in a locked cabinet. If a child swallows lighter fluid, immediately wipe off any fluid on the exposed skin. Do not make the child vomit. Ipecac syrup should never be used for this type of poisoning emergency. Immediately call the Poison Control Center. Charcoal lighter fluid can cause serious or potentially life-threatening chemical pneumonia. The substance can enter the lungs when the child tries to swallow or vomit. If an adult or child has difficulty breathing after swallowing any poison, especially charcoal lighter fluid, call 911 immediately.

While picnicking, keep such perishable foods as ham, potato or macaroni salad, hamburgers, hot dogs, lunch meat, cooked beef or chicken, deviled eggs, and custard or cream pies in an ice chest. Put leftovers back in the ice chest as soon as you finish eating. When possible, store the ice chest in the passenger area of the car during the trip, as it stays cooler than when in the trunk.

When hiking or camping, be aware of your surroundings; many areas have poisonous snakes and spiders. Most snake bites occur when people handle snakes or when they stick their hands down holes or under logs and unknowingly touch a snake.

If you are in an isolated area when bitten by a snake, proceed slowly to a vehicle. Moving slowly will keep the heart rate low and help prevent the venom from spreading. Drive to the nearest hospital. If you are alone and unable to drive, call 911 or have someone else call 911 and let that person drive you to the hospital. If bitten by a spider, call the Poison Control Center right away.

Using insect repellents can help deal with such uninvited guests as mosquitoes and ticks. However, it is very important to follow the label's directions. Repellents containing a 10 to 30 percent concentration of DEET are safe for use on children 3 months of age and older. Spray the repellent on your hands and then apply it to the exposed areas on your child. Be careful not to apply the repellent around the eyes or mouth.

For bee stings, remove the bee's stinger by scraping it out with the edge of a plastic card or blunt instrument. Do not squeeze the stung area; it can cause the stinger to release more venom. Wash the area with soap and water. Immediately apply ice wrapped in a cloth for 10 to 15 minutes. Remember that ice applied directly to skin can cause damage to sensitive tissue. If a person is having difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, wheezing, swelling or itching eyes, or other symptoms of an allergic reaction, call 911 immediately.

If taking pets, also be aware of added stress on animals on busy and holiday types of weekends. See: Holiday Weekend Pet Safety.

Have a safe Memorial Day Weekend and safe summer season!!~

The Tale of Two Different Doctor’s Offices…


(Boy, if this doesn't hit the nail on the head, I don't know what does!) 

Two  patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint.   Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week. 

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

..... the  FIRST is a Golden Retriever.

..... the  SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

Next time take me to a vet!

**Remember, if/after ObamaCare kicks in completely, people 79 and over will generally only be entitled to pain maintenance care, no major surgeries or expensive long-term treatments, determined by a rationing committee made up of bureaucrats. Also the pool of doctors for everyone is expected to shrink up to 30% while millions more patients are added to the rolls. It will make the scenario above a fond and wished for memory!**

'Pro-Choice' Americans At Record Low, Poll Finds

On 5/23/2012 6:03 PM - Yahoo

The percent of Americans who identify as "pro-choice" regarding legalized abortion is at a new low of 41 percent, according to a newly released Gallup poll. The figure is one percent lower than the previous all-time low registered by Gallup, which was in May 2009.

The decline appears to fall along party lines, with the percent of Republicans identifying as "pro-choice" decreasing from 28 percent last May, to 22 percent in this most recent poll. Democrats remain somewhat consistent, around 60 percent identify as pro-choice.

Pro-choice and pro-life was the language used in the Gallup poll questionnaire.

Potentially troubling for Democrats heading into the fall is the drop among voters who are registered as Independents identifying as "pro-choice." The survey found 41 percent of Independents identified as "pro-choice," while 47 percent identified as "pro-life," marking only the second time since 2001 that the number of "pro-life" Independents has outweighed the number of "pro-choice" Independents.

The reason for the shift in numbers is unclear, but the potential political implications may not actually be that great.

When polled on the question of legality, 52 percent of Americans said they believe that abortion should be legal "in certain circumstances." That number remains consistent with polling from May 2011.

Gallup found that 25 percent believe that abortion should be legal "in all cases," while 20 percent believe it should be illegal "in all cases." Those numbers are also consistent with polling from the same time last year.

Catholic Groups File Against Obama Contraception Mandate

A few facts:

Freedom of Religion is the cornerstone of America.  It is the main reason that most of the Founding Fathers and their contemporaries came to America.

Judeo-Christian values were purposely chosen by Thomas Jefferson as a basis for our system of law.

The words or phrase ‘separation of church and state’ is found nowhere in the U.S. Constitution, only in a letter between Thomas Jefferson and his cousin and the intent there was that God could and should be part of American laws and lives.  It is the government that was to be restricted from interfering with religion.  But thanks to the progressive focus to stop teaching history and to using case law instead of Constitutional law, most people don’t even understand the phrase that is being used against them.

Nowhere in the Constitution Does It Talk About Separation of Church and State and the concept was pick up from a letter between Jefferson and a cousin, but the context was changed. The concept was to protect the church from the government, not the government from the church. From:  Did You Know?  The Founding Fathers and God

You can be religious or not… but abortion is the murder of human beings.  If everyone before they had an abortion and everyone who stands back and remains neutral, especially those that believe in God, had to see the graphic photos below or see what their actions and inactions cause(d), abortions would stop.

President Obama and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius support late term and partial birth abortions.  President Obama voted against legislation when he was a Senator allowing babies who survived abortions from being comforted or helped.

Let’s ask Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, In her book “Women and the New Race“, what the purpose of birth control is:(Page 229)

Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives. So, in compliance with nature’s working plan, we must permit womanhood its full development before we can expect of it efficient motherhood. If we are to make racial progress, this development of womanhood must precede motherhood in every individual woman. Then and then only can the mother cease to be an incubator and be a mother indeed. Then only can she transmit to her sons and daughters the qualities which make strong individuals and, collectively, a strong race.

Ok, now it makes sense. Birth control is the sacrament of eugenics.

And let us not forget who is behind ObamaCare, the contraception mandate and forcing taxpayers to pay for contraception & abortions, as well as Catholic and other religious hospitals and facilities to provide these products and services (against their beliefs and consciences)  … Here is Ultra Left Wing HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ Spin (Remember, Sibelius was an ardent supporter of murdered partial birth abortionist, Tiller and her extreme record on abortion has sadly been ignored (or hidden) by the media.)

Please support the Catholic Groups who are fighting for the First Amendment, for life and for America’s value system.

Catholic Groups File Against Obama Contraception Mandate

More than three dozen Catholic archdioceses and institutions filed suit in federal courts on Monday challenging the constitutionality of the so-called contraception mandate in President Barack Obama's healthcare overhaul.

Claiming that their “fundamental rights hang in the balance,” a total of 43 plaintiffs filed a dozen separate suits against the requirement that employers’ health insurance plans cover birth control.
The mandate created a storm of controversy when it came to light as part of Obamacare. The Obama administration softened its position on the mandate several months ago.

"We have tried negotiation with the administration and legislation with the Congress — and will keep at it — and there's still no fix," said Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York. "Time is running out, and our precious ministries and fundamental rights hang in the balance, so we have to resort to the courts now."

In a statement, the archdioces said: "The Archdiocese of New York has filed this suit because the federal government is requiring religious organizations, under penalty of law, to provide, pay for, and/or facilitate access to services that are contrary to their deeply held and constitutionally-protected religious beliefs."

Obama shifted responsibility for paying for reproductive procedures from religious institutions to health insurance companies. But employees of Catholic institutions will still be able to get contraceptive coverage from their health plans.

Just last month, Archbishop of Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl told Newsmax.TV, “This is the invasion of our religious freedom by a government mandate.”

A statement from the University of Notre Dame on Monday said the requirement would call on religious-affiliated groups to “facilitate” coverage “for services that violate the teachings of the Catholic Church."

“The federal mandate requires Notre Dame and similar religious organizations to provide in their insurance plans abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives and sterilization procedures” and “authorizes the government to determine which organizations are sufficiently ‘religious’ to warrant an exemption from the requirement.”

The Archdiocese of Washington also issued a statement reading in part: “Today, the Archdiocese of Washington filed a legal action in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to challenge the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) unprecedented mandate dramatically redefining religious ministry and requiring religious organizations to provide coverage for drugs and procedures in direct conflict with their religious beliefs.

“Archbishop Carroll High School, Inc.; Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington, Inc.; the Consortium of Catholic Academies of the Archdiocese of Washington, Inc.; and The Catholic University of America are also plaintiffs in the same action.

“The archdiocese’s complaint maintains that the HHS mandate violates the First Amendment and federal law by forcing the plaintiffs, all Catholic organizations, to sacrifice their beliefs in order to be able to continue their mission of serving all people in need.
“Specifically, the suit stems from the mandate’s new definition of what constitutes a religious organization. Contrary to long-standing precedent, the law exempts from the mandate only those religious institutions that primarily serve and employ individuals of their own faith. Any other religious organizations, like Catholic schools, universities, hospitals and charities that serve all individuals regardless of their faith, do not themselves qualify as religious for purposes of the exemption.

“Consequently, the HHS mandate forces these organizations to act in direct violation of their Catholic beliefs.”

Cardinal Wuerl said in the statement that the mandate forces Catholic institutions “to provide coverage for drugs and procedures that we believe are morally wrong.”

Step #1: Count how many of the 14 photos below show babies and how many of the photos show non-babies. Here is the first photo:















So, how many babies vs. Non-babies did you see above? Were they 5 babies vs. 9 non-babies? Were they 8 babies vs. 6 non-babies, 11 babies vs. 3 non-babies ... Or were all of them babies?

Abortions, including early abortions and grotesque partial birth abortions, as well as the cold-blooded born alive abortions, all of which President Obama supports, violate clear Bible verses against them.

"If abortion is murder, why do some Christians defend abortion?"
People - Christian or otherwise - who doubt abortion is murder and try to defend it usually do so by redefining murder exceptionally narrowly and/or by claiming that these Bible verses about abortion apply to babies whom they inexplicably declare to be the exceptions to the rule (and self- declaration doesn't necessarily prove a person to be Christian).

The question of whether or not abortion is murder typically leads to asking "when" is abortion murder, which in turn eventually leads to asking what is a baby and what isn't yet a baby, but merely a zygote, an embryo or a fetus.

You most likely have good sense of judgment and perception, so instead of letting other people try to draw conclusions for you, draw your own conclusion on whether or not abortion is murder by using this quick and simple test

Someday, if America and mankind survive, the people of our time will be considered barbarians for allowing abortions to be performed!

U.S. lagging Rwanda in Healthcare?

Here is an article in the L.A. Times by Noam N. Levey, who attempts to carry the administration's water by chastising those in the U.S. who oppose ObamaCare. Specifically, he holds up efforts in China, Mexico and Thailand and others who are attempting to give universal health care to all of their citizens:

Even as Americans debate whether to scrap President Obama's healthcare law and its promise of guaranteed health coverage, many far less affluent nations are moving in the opposite direction — to provide medical insurance to all citizens.

China, after years of underfunding healthcare, is on track to complete a three-year, $124-billion initiative projected to cover more than 90% of the nation's residents.

Mexico, which a decade ago covered less than half its population, just completed an eight-year drive for universal coverage that has dramatically expanded Mexicans' access to life-saving treatments for diseases such as leukemia and breast cancer.

In Thailand, where the gross domestic product per person is a fifth of America's, just 1% of the population lacks health insurance. And in sub-Saharan Africa, Rwanda and Ghana — two of the world's poorest nations — are working to create networks of insurance plans to cover their citizens.

"This is truly a global movement," said Dr. Julio Frenk, a former health minister in Mexico and dean of the Harvard School of Public Health. "As countries advance, they are realizing that creating universal healthcare systems is a necessity for long-term economic development."

So after getting in a jibe at us anti-ObamaCare folks, Levey holds up China, Mexico, Thailand, Ghana and Rwanda as examples the U.S. should follow in terms of universal health coverage? Um, OKaaay.
But the other thing that strikes me is Julio Frenk's assertion that creating universal healthcare is necessary for 'long-term economic development'. Not sure how he worked that out given that countries like the UK and France have done this for years and they systems are both bankrupt and rationing health care. Just for the record, entitlements have never proven to be an economic stimulus.

Look, the U.S. has been without universal health care for over 200 years and it appears to me that we've done pretty well for ourselves not to mention the rest of the world (you know leading the entire world in economic development and raising millions around the world out of poverty).

But further to the point of the article I just don't understand how you can compare the U.S. with any of these countries. For example Levey asserts that China's problem is that their population is 'saving excessively' due to the lack of coverage:

Chinese leaders were concerned their citizens were saving excessively because there was no system to protect them if they got seriously ill, said Yanzhong Huang, director of the Center for Global Health Studies at Seton Hall University. The high savings rate was restraining domestic demand for consumer items, making the economy overly dependent on selling goods abroad.

Here's a question: is this due to the high cost of health care or low earning for the average worker? According to Wikipedia the household median income for Mexico (the only country Levey cites in the top 34) is $4,689 (34th) while in the U.S. its $31,111 (2nd). So it would seem that the Chinese citizens are simply prioritizing their remarkably limited discretionary income. My point here is that the citizens of these countries have very little room for error given the lack of discretionary income compared to the U.S.

Further, Cristiam Baeza makes the point that 'people are demanding responses from their governments':

"People are demanding responses from their governments," said Cristian Baeza, health director of the World Bank. Indeed, in countries such as India, politicians have learned that one of the surest ways to secure votes is to promise better access to healthcare.

Given the low wages and lack of economic freedom I am not in the least surprised that the populations of these countries are looking for government help. My guess is that the populace is threatening to revolt unless something is done. So in order to stay in power, the powers that be will promise healthcare in exchange for civil peace.
But here's the rub - there is no way these countries will be able to afford universal healthcare for their people unless they follow the UK model that gives substandard care and rationing of services. More specifically whom are these countries going to tax in order to provide these services? As noted above the median income of these countries is anemic at best so how can you tax someone if they have no money?
But that's not the point of the article. Levey wants to make the embarrassing point that the U.S. is lagging these more 'forward' thinking countries like Rwanda and further call out us unenlightened troglodytes who oppose ObamaCare.

But the one thing Levey fails to address is the economics of universal healthcare. It is one thing for the politicians/dictators of these countries to promise universal healthcare and another all together to deliver in anything like the services we enjoy in the U.S. But just like all liberals Levey simply assumes that it's all free because it is provided by the 'government'.

Myth Busted: Vaccinations Are Not Immunizations

The facts…

Craig Stellpflug  -  Natural News  -  May 16, 2012

There is only one kind of immunity and that is natural immunity which is achieved by battling the infectious diseases itself.

Vaccination is merely the artificial triggering of temporary responses to manmade pathogens. Vaccines are both harmful and dangerous and are leading to generations of humans with no natural defenses to disease.

Vaccines do not provide long-term immunity; only temporary at best. In vaccines, an antigen is injected into the body to produce a reaction and the immune system responds in the form of antibodies, but antibody presence does not confer immunity. People still catch the diseases that they are vaccinated against. Vaccines actually skip the normal immune responses to activate killer cells which can trigger an overproduction of cytokines in response to the toxic vaccine adjuvants and can damage tissues and organs and even stop the heart and block air pathways.

Vaccines should never be called immunizations because that is a misnomer. Immunity and vaccinations are two different subjects altogether. In fact, breast milk is so potent with immune energizing effects in the infant that researchers at the CDC recommend women withhold breastfeeding their children in order to boost the “effectiveness” of childhood vaccines. The paper claims that women should stop breastfeeding long enough for the man-made poison to work on artificial/temporary “immunity.”

There is no such thing as a “side effect”

After-effects of vaccines are only followed for a very short time. Effects that are not seen for 30 years will not even be associated with the vaccine. Immunizations are contributing to the lowering of immunity along with the spread of auto-immune diseases such as arthritis and even AIDS throughout the world. Research clearly shows that aluminum mixed into vaccines carries a risk for autoimmunity, long-term brain inflammation, and subsequent neurological complications and may have profound and widespread adverse health complications. Many vaccines contain both aluminum and trace amounts of mercury. When you mix these 2 metals together it causes Extreme Synergistic Toxicity.

The facts:

As vaccinated disease rates go down (but not necessarily as a result of toxic vaccinations), the rate of chronic disease goes up in lock-step. Vaccines, as they are commonly given, destroy the natural immunity process and accelerate the auto-immune disease process.

Deaths from measles in 1900 were 13 per 100,000 people. In 1948: less than one. Measles vaccines introduced in 1963 but took full credit for what they never did – eliminate measles. Japanese health authorities realized that early inoculations were causing crib deaths so they postponed them until the 24th month and SIDS virtually disappeared along with whooping cough (pertussis) during the first two years of babies’ lives. Instead of preventing whooping cough the DPT promotes it as well as SIDS. Reuters recently reports that according to the CDC, the number of pertussis cases is growing – in

the fully vaccinated population!

The recent Bachmair vaccine study reveals that the allergy rate in vaccinated children is more than double the rate in unvaccinated ones. Vaccinated children are also nearly eight times more prone to develop asthma or chronic bronchitis than unvaccinated. Furthermore, vaccinated kiddos suffer from more neurodermatitis, herpes, otitis media, hay fever, hyperactivity, scoliosis, epilepsy and seizures, migraine headaches, thyroid disease, and SIDS than unvaccinated children. Vaccinated kids historically also have more measles than unvaccinated kids.

Doctor after doctor will tell you that vaccinations have reduced the incidence of many infectious diseases but they have no real proof. In fact, all the epidemical evidence shows that disease rates rise after vaccines – in the vaccinated population. Should we trust them just on their word? Make an informed decision about you and your child’s health.

Autism cases: for the tribunal of Rimini, “it is the fault of the vaccine” – April 10, 2012

Autism. Rimini District Court: “The fault of the vaccine.” The ministry ordered to pay compensation.

Now, it seemed an old theory denigrated, the court instead of Rimini argued that a vaccine can make a child autistic.

This judgment No. 2010/148, part No. 2010/0474, journal.n ° 2012/886, gave the appeal lodged by parents against the Department of Health, who demanded the payment of compensation for irreversible complications caused by a vaccine.

The vaccine is MMR. According to parents, in fact, symptoms of autism in their son did appear after inoculation.

Autisme. Autism. Tribunal de Rimini : « La faute du vaccin ». Le ministère condamné à payer une indemnité. Rimini District Court: "The fault of the vaccine." The ministry ordered to pay compensation.

Désormais, cela semblait être une vieille théorie dénigrée, au contraire le tribunal de Rimini a soutenu qu'un vaccin peut rendre un enfant autiste . Now, it seemed an old theory denigrated, the court instead of Rimini argued that a vaccine can make a child autistic.

Ce jugement n° 2010/148, rôle n°2010/0474, journal.n°2012/886, a donné droit au recours introduit par des parents contre le ministère de la Santé, qui demandaient le paiement d'une indemnité pour complications irréversibles causées par un vaccin . This judgment No. 2010/148, part No. 2010/0474, journal.n ° 2012/886, gave the appeal lodged by parents against the Department of Health, who demanded the payment of compensation for irreversible complications caused by a vaccine.

Le vaccin en question est le ROR . The vaccine is MMR. Selon les parents, en fait, les symptômes de l'autisme de leur fils sont vraiment apparus à la suite de l'inoculation. According to parents, in fact, symptoms of autism in their son did appear after inoculation.

Et vraiment le jour même, comme lu dans le jugement . And really the same day, as read in the judgment . Au retour du dispensaire de Riccione, le 26 mars 2004, l'enfant a commencé à manifester des symptômes préoccupants (diarrhée et nervosité) puis entre 2004 et 2005 sont survenus des signes de grave détresse psycho-physique jusqu'à la reconnaissance, le 7 août 2007, de l'invalidité totale et permanente à 100%. Return to the clinic in Riccione, March 26, 2004, the child began to show troubling symptoms (diarrhea and nervousness) and then between 2004 and 2005 occurred signs of severe psychological distress to physical recognition, 7 August 2007, the total and permanent disability to 100%.

Que cela fut rapporté à la vaccination pratiquée, le spécialiste Niglio l'avait déjà affirmé en juin 2008 et la confirmation est arrivée un an après par le spécialiste Montanari. That it was told the vaccination, the specialist Niglio had already stated in June 2008 and the confirmation came a year later by the specialist Montanari. Le lien, selon le jugement est donc « établi ». Jusqu'à condamner le ministère de la Santé à payer une indemnité . The link, in the judgment is "established." Up condemn the Ministry of Health to pay compensation.

Le jugement a provoqué une « grande confusion » entre les experts du Conseil Scientifique du Calendrier Vaccinal pour la Vie, qui rassemble des personnalités de hauts rangs de l'Hygiène et de la Santé Publique, de la Médecine Générale, de la Pédiatrie régionale-hospitalière et universitaire chapeautant la Société Italienne de l'Hygiène, de la Médecine Préventive et de la Santé Publique (SItI), la Fédération Italienne des Médecins de Médecine Générale (Fimmg), la Fédération Italienne des Médecins Pédiatres (Fimp) et la Société Italienne de Pédiatrie (Sip). The judgment has caused "great confusion" between the experts of the Scientific Council of the immunization schedule for Life, which brings together people with high ranks of Hygiene and Public Health, General Practice, the Regional Pediatric Hospital- university umbrella and the Italian Society of Hygiene, Preventive Medicine and Public Health (ITIS), the Italian Federation of General Practice Doctors (Fimmg), the Italian Federation of Paediatricians Doctors (FIMP) and the Italian Society of Pediatrics (Sip).

Le jugement, selon ces experts, doit être « évidemment » basé « sur ce qui a été publié, il ya 14 ans, dans la revue Lancet, et successivement retiré pour l'évident The judgment, according to these experts, must be "of course" based "on what has been published 14 years ago, in the Lancet, and successively removed for obvious non-fondement de ce qui a été initialement proposé par un groupe de chercheurs britanniques ». non-foundation of what was originally proposed by a group of British researchers. "

La célèbre revue médicale Lancet a en fait officiellement retiré l'étude sur les possibilités de liens entre l'autisme et le vaccin ROR. The leading medical journal Lancet actually formally withdrew the study on possible links between autism and MMR. L'article, publié en 1998 et écrit par le médecin britannique Andrew Wakefield, a été cause d'une longue dispute scientifique durant quasiment 12 ans. The article, published in 1998 and written by British physician Andrew Wakefield, was due to a long dispute over scientific nearly 12 years. Wakefield soutenait que le vaccin fut la cause d'infections intestinales, à la fois liées au syndrome de Kanner. Wakefield claimed that the vaccine was the cause of intestinal infections, both associated with Kanner syndrome. Ses affirmations furent discréditées par le monde scientifique, et ont été la base des plus importants litiges de l'histoire de la médecine : His claims were discredited by the scientific world, and were the basis of the most important disputes in the history of medicine:

« Malheureusement – commente le Conseil Scientifique – les fausses thèses proposées ont "Unfortunately - says the Scientific Council - false theories have proposed conduit à une forte diminution des vaccinations aux Etats Unis, en Grande Bretagne et dans d'autres pays d'Europe, avec la conséquence, dans de nombreux cas, d'une augmentation soudaine des cas de rougeole et ses complications, y compris plusieurs cas d'encéphalite et de mort ». led to a sharp decline in vaccinations in the United States, Britain and other European countries, with the result, in many cases, a sudden increase in cases of measles and its complications, including several cases encephalitis and death. "

« Divers points des travaux en 1998 de Wakerfield sont incorrects », a déclaré dans un communiqué de presse la même revue scientifique, traitant de la publication de 1998, rappellent les experts de la SItI, de la Fimmg, de la Fimp et de la Sip en une note, ajoutant que « une commission disciplinaire du Comité de médecine générale britannique (General Medical Council), après une étude soignée, a déclaré comment Wakerfield a présenté sa recherche d'une façon « irresponsable et malhonnête » et a « ignoré avec insensibilité » la souffrance des enfants objets de l'étude. "Different points of work in 1998 Wakerfield are incorrect," said in a press release the same journal, dealing with the 1998 publication, say the experts ITIS, the Fimmg, the FIMP and Sip in a note, adding that "a disciplinary committee of the British Committee of General Practice (General Medical Council), after careful study, told how Wakerfield presented his research in a" dishonest and irresponsible "and" ignored with insensitivity "the suffering of children covered by the study. Dans le rapport du Comité Scientifique on peut lire, en outre, que Wakefield a ainsi « ruiné la réputation » de la profession médicale. In the Scientific Committee's report can be read also that Wakefield has "ruined the reputation" of the medical profession. Le même Wakefield a été expulsé du Collège des Médecins et ne peut plus pratiquer la médecine. Verdicts si nets et graves qui laissent peu de doutes ». The same Wakefield was expelled from the College of Physicians and can no longer practice medicine. Verdicts net and if serious leave little doubt . "

Le Conseil Scientifique rappelle au contraire que « les résultats de deux études scientifiques récemment publiés dans une des revues médicales les plus crédibles au niveau mondial , le British Medical Journal The Scientific Council recalls the contrary that "the results of two scientific studies published recently in one of the most credible medical journals worldwide , the British Medical Journal (une le 5 janvier 2011 BMJ 2011 ; 342 : c5347 ; et l'autre publiée le 11 janvier 2011 BMJ 2011 ; 342 : c5258) ont déclarés le non-fondement de cette association et, entre autres, que les patients ont été recrutés parmi les militants anti-vaccination, et que l'étude a été commandée et financée dans un but précis caractérisé par des préjugés idéologiques et des intérêts économiques ». (A January 5, 2011 BMJ 2011 342: c5347, and the other published January 11, 2011 BMJ 2011 342: c5258) have reported the failure of the association and foundation, among others, that patients were recruited from anti-vaccination activists, and that the study was commissioned and funded for a specific purpose characterized by ideological prejudices and economic interests. "

« Trop souvent et sans preuves scientifiquement établies, la seule relation concomitante entre l'administration d'un vaccin et un effet indésirable ou une pathologie due à une cause inconnue est considérée comme suffisant en soi pour considérer que la cause vient de la vaccination », commente le Conseil, selon lequel « avant de prendre des mesures qui directement ou indirectement auront un sens négatif sur toute la communauté faisant prendre un risque de maladie aux enfants et aux adultes par reflexe négatif à l'adhésion au programme national de prévention, qui est appelé à juger – Commission ex lois 210/92 – assumant la plus grande rigueur scientifique et surtout la durabilité des affirmations, des jugements basés sur les acquis universellement reconnus ». "Too often unproven and scientifically established, the only relationship between the concomitant administration of a vaccine and an adverse event or disease due to unknown causes is considered sufficient in itself to consider that the cause comes from vaccination," Council commented, that "before taking actions that directly or indirectly have a negative meaning to the whole community by taking a risk of illness for children and adults with negative reflex to join the national prevention program, which is called upon to judge - former Commission laws 210/92 - assuming the greatest scientific rigor and above all sustainability claims, judgments based on the universally recognized achievements. "

« Est également anormal – continue la note des experts SItI, Fimmg, Fimp et Sip – le fait que le jugement cité puisse ignorer les raisons et les actions de la communauté scientifique nationale et internationale qui, entre autres, a le droit/ le devoir de protéger tous les travaux dans le seul but d'exercer la profession avec les garanties médico-légales voulues. "Also unusual - the note continues ITIS experts, Fimmg, FIMP and Sip - the fact that the city can ignore the judgment and reasons for the actions of national and international scientific community which, inter alia, the right / duty to protect all work solely in order to practice with the guarantees necessary forensic. Pourtant, un tel jugement à peine émis risque d'avoir pour seul résultat la perte de confiance en notre instrument de prévention fondamentale pour la santé des enfants et de toute la population, avec pour conséquence la ré-émergence de maladies graves et encore mortelles, comme la rougeole, et faisant croire également aux parents d'enfants affectés d'une maladie grave telle que l'autisme d'avoir trouvé la raison de tant de souffrances. Yet such a judgment issued just might have the only result the loss of confidence in our fundamental instrument of prevention to the health of children and the entire population, with consequent re-emergence of serious illness and even death, like measles, and thinking also to parents of children afflicted with serious illness such as autism have found the reason for so much suffering. Et certainement ces parents ne méritent pas d'autres mensonges sur l'état de leur enfant ». And these parents certainly do not deserve more lies about the status of their child. "

Enfin, pour éviter que ce jugement fasse jurisprudence négative sur les dynamiques professionnelles , le Conseil espère que le Ministère de la Santé, en tant que défenseur dans le cas qui a conduit au jugement controversé de première instance, va interjeter appel auprès de la Cour de Bologne. Finally, to prevent this negative judgment set a precedent on professional dynamics, the Council hopes that the Ministry of Health, as an advocate in the case which led to the controversial judgment of first instance, will appeal to the Court of Bologna. A cette fin, les membres du Conseil se rendent « disponibles à aider le bureau du Procureur Général à fournir conseils et littératures scientifiques valables pour souligner en particulier l'incapacité de cette vaccination spécifique à créer des antécédents provocant l'autisme». To this end, Council members will make "available to assist the Attorney General's office to provide advice and valid scientific literature to highlight in particular the failure of this specific vaccination to create provocative history of autism."

Franciscan University of Steubenville drops student health plan over HHS mandate

by Ben Johnson - Tue May 15, 2012 12:51 EST

STEUBENVILLE, OHIO, May 15, 2012, ( – Catholic religious leaders have warned that religious institutions may be forced to stop providing health care coverage if the Department of Health and Human Services does not change its mandate to provide contraceptives, including abortifacients, as part of their health care plans. Today, the first Catholic university has followed through by dropping its health care plan for students.

The Franciscan University of Steubenville announced it will not furnish students with health care coverage effective this fall, specifically citing the HHS mandate as the reason.

“The Obama Administration has mandated that all health insurance plans must cover ‘women’s health services’ including contraception, sterilization, and abortion-causing medications as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA),” a statement posted on its website states. “Up to this time, Franciscan University has specifically excluded these services and products from its student health insurance policy, and we will not participate in a plan that requires us to violate the consistent teachings of the Catholic Church on the sacredness of human life.

“Due to these changes in regulation by the federal government, beginning with the 2012-13 school year, the University 1) will no longer require that all full-time undergraduate students carry health insurance, 2) will no longer offer a student health insurance plan, and 3) will no longer bill those not covered under a parent/guardian plan or personal plan for student health insurance.”

The rising premiums that attend a greater government role in health care were another reason for the cancellation. “Additionally, the PPACA increased the mandated maximum coverage amount for student policies to $100,000 for the 2012-13 school year, which would effectively double your premium cost for the policy in fall 2012, with the expectation of further increases in the future,” the statement said.

The college located in eastern Ohio, which is ranked one of the best private college values by Kiplinger, noted its current student health insurance plan will expire on August 15.

Click “like” if you want to end abortion!

On September 29 the university was one of 18 Catholic colleges to write a letter asking the Obama administration to rewrite the mandate, noting they were “being forced to choose between offering such coverage, paying a fine, or offering no coverage at all.”

An employee of the university, Tom Crowe, wrote his employer’s message was brisk and clear: “We. Will. Not. Comply. And our students are the first one who will feel the pinch.” He added that the university is not self-insuring and would not have been exempt from the mandate, adding such an exemption exists “on paper only.”
Catholics universities are not the only religious institutions poised to take drastic action as a result of the Obama administration’s abortifacient decree.

Chicago’s Francis Cardinal George has warned all Catholic hospitals will close in two years unless the religious exemption is expanded. Together, the nation’s Catholic hospitals account for 13 percent of the nation’s hospitals.

If these hospitals closed it would create a supply shortage, with the likely effect being government programs will be forced to pick up the slack.

South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy said at a House Oversight Hearing on February 16 that closing religious hospitals and schools, or forcing them to end health care coverage, “means government is gonna get bigger, because they’re going to have to fill the void…and maybe that’s what they wanted all along.”

Mad moms to food police: We'll eat what we want

Protest to focus on state demands in fight with consumers


by Bob Unruh  - WND

Moms in Minnesota are preparing to defy state dictates over when and how they can access food supplies for their families, with a rally scheduled Monday to coincide with the beginning of the trial of the manager of a farm buying club, according to the Farm Food Freedom Coalition.

WND previously has reported on disputes between farmers and consumers on one side and federal regulators on the other. They have involved the purchase by consumers of raw milk, the rights of consumers to access milk from their own cows, a radio program that offered natural products and a blogger who wrote about his battle with diabetes and was threatened with jail.

The newest development comes from the Farm Food Freedom Coalition, which is assembling a protest at the Minneapolis trial of Alvin Schlangen, a farm buying club manager.

The group said that mothers in the state who act as hosts for “drop sites” for farm buying club members now have been threatened with criminal charges.

The May 14 protest will be at 7 a.m. outside the Minneapolis courthouse where Schlangen’s trial is scheduled, officials said.

“At the rally supporters will sign a ‘Declaration of Food Independence’ and demonstrate non-compliance against what they deem ‘unjust’ regulations,” the organization announced.

Another supporting organization, the Raw Milk Freedom Riders, said that Schlangen founded the Freedom Farms Coop, which simply connects people with the foods of their choice from local producers.

“Over the past two years the Minnesota Department of Agriculture has illegally raided Alvin’s van, warehouse, and farm. The state has now brought four charges against Alvin related to food distribution; all are misdemeanors counts. If convicted, Alvin faces up to a year in jail and hefty fines … just for helping to connect consumers to the producers and foods of their choice.”

Organizers confirm that “several Minnesota mothers who organize community access to local fresh farm foods plan to risk criminal charges by openly and publicly defying warnings from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.”

“The MDA has threatened several mothers, conducted investigations against them and sent them warning letters that if they continue helping provide fresh food to their friends and neighbors, they will be subject to criminal charges and prosecution. The MDA alleges the mothers are violating food-handling regulations.”

Hundreds are expected to join the rally, organizers estimate.

“It is absolutely outrageous that during this time of economic crisis our state government is investigating and sending warning letters to mothers and putting farmers on trial who are helping provide communities with fresh foods. It is my right to contract privately with a farmer for the food of my choice just as it is the right of every American,” said Melinda Olson, a mother and recipient of one of the MDA’s warnings.

“The MDA’s harassment against mothers will not work. We plan to ignore this warning and continue operating as we are. MDA should not waste taxpayer money investigating, prosecuting and jailing peaceful farmers and mothers for helping their communities secure fresh foods. Our time to stand up against this tyranny is now!” she said.

Pete Kennedy of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, who tracks such issues nationally, said, “Nowhere in the country at this time is state action against food freedom and consumer choice more oppressive than in the state of Minnesota.”

Plans posted online for the event explain that the court has allowed three days for Schlangen’s misdemeanor trial.

The Farm-to-Consumer Fund also confirmed that once the Minneapolis trial for Schlangen is over, he’ll face six more charges of food rule violations in Stearns County.

“While this is going on, there is a pending administrative hearing in which MDA is seeking an order to suspend any further food sales by Schlangen,” the fund reported.

“In addition to selling poultry and eggs produced on his farm, Schlangen manages the Freedom Farms Coop (a private food club formed in July 2010, serving more than 50 families) and delivers raw dairy products and other nutrient dense foods to club members, most of whom live in the Twin Cities.”

The organization documented Schlangen’s perspective, who said: “It must be legal to privately support farms that grow quality food and provide for the health of our growing children and seniors. This should be a model for today’s agriculture. Connecting kids with natural food production is vital to their future.”

He explains he believes private arrangements to purchase such food are not under the jurisdiction of the state.

It was nearly two years ago when the MDA raided warehouse space Schlangen leased. In the warrantless search, state officials seized food at the facility.

Then in 2011 deputies accompanied state agency officials when they impounded his truck and goods while he was delivering farm eggs to students at Macalester College in in St. Paul.

He has argued he doesn’t need a state “food handler’s permit” because he delivers only to members of the buying club through private contract, not the public.

The organization also reports the state agency “has tried” to put farmer Mike Hartmann out of business in recent years, bringing charges against him, his wife Diana and others.

WND reported several months ago when protesters distributed an estimated 100 gallons of raw milk in front of the offices of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration near Washington during a rally that prompted the federal agency to issue a statement defending its crackdown on the product.

The event was organized by the Farm Food Freedom Coalition. A spokesman for the rally, Max Kane, told WND that a caravan of vehicles collected the supplies of raw milk, then traveled to Silver Springs, Md., to the FDA offices for the protest.

The distribution there was in violation of a federal law that prevents people from moving raw milk across state lines for delivery to others. The rally participants were met by officers from the Department of Homeland Security and others.

But Kane said there were no conflicts, no arrests and no violence.

The FDA said there have been there have been reports of illnesses from raw milk, but a report from the Weston A. Price Foundation revealed that from 1980 to 2005 there were 10 times more illnesses from pasteurized milk than from raw milk.

Today, 30 states allow the sale of raw milk and 20 forbid it, but the federal government forbids it in interstate business.

In California, three people are facing trial following an investigation of the Rawesome buying club. In that case, one of the defense lawyers was stunned by the militancy of the prosecutor, declaring, “She doesn’t want raw milk. … She wants blood.”

The federal government has a long history of cracking down on those who produce raw milk and make it available to consumers – even when the consumers are the ones who own the cows and milk.

In that recent case in Wisconsin, a judge ruled that Americans do not have a right to choose their food, not even when they own the cows and the milk.

Kimberly Hartke of the Campaign for Real Milk, a project of The Weston A. Price Foundation, has told WND as the cases have developed the government’s “heavy-handed” tactics simply have gone too far.

“As more consumers seek greater access to local farm fresh milk to feed their families, our federal government is working overtime to curtail freedom to feed your family the way you deem necessary. Since most seek raw dairy for health reasons, this is a serious concern,” she said.

It was a ruling from Circuit Court Judge Patrick J. Fiedler in Wisconsin that said the families who reported they were boarding their cows for a fee and then getting the milk instead were running a “dairy farm.”

“It’s always a surprise when a judge says you don’t have the fundamental right to consume the foods of your choice,” said Kennedy.

Fiedler’s decision said, “Plaintiffs argue that they have a fundamental right to possess, use and enjoy their property and therefore have a fundamental right to own a cow, or a heard (sic) of cows, and to use their cow(s) in a manner that does not cause harm to third parties. They argue that they have a fundamental right to privacy to consume the food of their choice for themselves and their families and therefore have a fundamental right to consume unpasteurized milk from their cows,” the judge wrote.

Bunk, he concluded.

“They do not simply own a cow that they board at a farm. Instead, plaintiffs operate a dairy farm. If plaintiffs want to continue to operate their dairy farm then they must do so in a way that complies with the laws of Wisconsin.”

He continued, “The court denied plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment, which means the following:

“(1) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a diary (sic) herd;
“(2) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;
“(3) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to board their cow at the farm of a farmer;
“(4) no, the Zinniker plaintiffs’ private contract does not fall outside the scope of the state’s police power;
“(5) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice; and
“(6) no, the DATCP did not act in an ultra vires manner because it had jurisdiction to regulate the Zinniker plaintiffs’ conduct.”
