You’ve Awoken the Mommies

SavageThere was a viral video going around a few months ago about the negative effects of the Common Core curriculum currently being pushed in schools across the country.  There was an educator featured on that video chastising the administration for implementing such ridiculous standards, and creating huge amounts of stress and anxiety for the students.

During the last part of her testimony, she said one statement that brought the crowd to their feet with raucous cheers.  She stated simply, “You’ve awoken the Mommies, and now you’re in trouble.”

That statement really resonated with me.  It’s not just about pushing an education agenda that parents don’t agree with. The truth of the matter is, moms and dads are waking up.  Every day, more and more parents are witnessing an epidemic firsthand.  Children are being diagnosed with neurologic disorders at an alarming rate — autism, epilepsy, and dyslexia to name a few.  Parents are left with more questions than answers when they visit their pediatrician’s office.

The concerns of the parents have been ignored for too long, but not anymore. The tide is getting stronger.  Our voices are getting louder.  We are demanding answers.  We will not accept the brushing aside of our concerns with the “need for more studies” or “it’s simply genetic.”  The evidence is becoming too big to ignore.

Did you hear that CDC?  Would you like me to repeat that for you FDA?  Did you really think that you could keep hiding behind your bogus studies and corporate greed, and we wouldn’t notice that, because of your callous disregard, our children are suffering?  Did you really think it was possible to keep hiding all of the damage you’ve been doing and just sweep it under the rug, and we would accept your findings that there is no link between vaccines and autism, epilepsy or developmental delays when clearly there is?

Mothers don’t lose their brain cells all of a sudden when we give birth.  We don’t become mindless dolts whose only function is handing out juice boxes and scheduling playdates.  We are Thinkers.  Yes, we are Thinkers.  We question; we learn; we demand answers instead of just accepting the status quo.  We will exhaust all possibilities for our children.  We network with other moms and dads and share our experiences.  We travel to different states seeking out the best doctors and therapies for our kids.  We call upon the knowledge of the mothers who have been fighting this fight for decades and never had a platform until now.

There’s a shift happening and the charge is being led by us, the Moms and Dads.  We’re smart, dedicated, and above all else we love our children.  And not just OUR children, we want ALL kids to succeed.  We want ALL parents to have the tools they need to be successful parents.  We want solutions, not more BS studies that point the finger at everything but the real truth.

It’s exciting to see a change in mindsight by parents of typical children as well.  The special needs community has been quite vocal for years because we’ve lived it.  It’s wonderful to see new moms with healthy kids are now joining the trenches.  A few years ago, I would read articles about the potential causes of autism and the correlation between vaccines and developmental delays.  Back then, about 80% of the comments were pro-vaccine and pro-pharma.  Fast forward to 2014, and the landscape is very different.  The support for vaccines and pharmaceutical medications has dropped dramatically. For every comment supportive of the CDC’s current vaccine schedule, there are 3 or 4 in opposition.  People are becoming distrustful of the medical community.  People aren’t running to the doctor when they get sick. They’re educating themselves on natural remedies.  They’re rejecting the conventional healthcare paradigm that has long been ingrained in our society.  People are taking charge of their own health and wellness.  Mothers are at the forefront of the medical marijuana issue, trying to get legislation passed in order for those that need it to be able to have access to it.  We’re demanding our food be grown organically and clean, and not genetically modified.  Support for local farmers is increasing every day with a rejection of mass produced factory farms.

Knowledge is power.  We’ve been misled long enough.  We’re tired of profits over people.  We’re no longer going to sit idly by and wait for our government leaders to effect change.  We are leading the charge and our voices are only getting louder and our numbers are getting stronger.

Did you hear that CDC and FDA?

    I just had court today. The custody judge is forcing my childrrn to be vaccinated to full CDC recommendation, including flu shots, beginning tomorrow.
    He never even read or listened to ONE WORD of the years of research I have performed trying to figure out what is right for my children. He never considered FOR ONE SECOND that I watched my son lie on the floor and seize and turn blue, lie in the hospital unconscious for a day. But somehow, they’re is no concern for further vax. I tried to take back the power, but haven’t figured out how to do that without getting thrown in jail.

    • ProfessorTMR says:

      Lin, that is positively horrifying. I’m going to send you an email. If you like, I think we should publicize your situation. At the very least, it may be that we can force your judge to stop and think. We can reach 30,000 people on our Facebook page. They can make a lot of noise when something pisses them off enough, and I know that this situation would make most of their blood run cold.

  2. On September the 18th 2010 I started an inquiry amongst parents of Autistic children
    “I am compiling a list of children who were adversely affected by any vaccine. Please if you could say in about 4-6 sentences what that vaccine was, how they reacted, how they are today and what city the vaccine was administered.” Over 174 countries worldwide have viewed this site.

  3. Great article many thanks for keeping up the pressure. Too many as in hundreds of thousands are getting vaccine injured. I have been collecting parents voices and have over 1,300 voices all saying the same thing all over the world. I have been campaigning for nearly 20 years to get awareness of autism and especially vaccine induced autism.

  4. Shank says:

    From the article:

    “In 2006, scientists from the Harvard School of Public Health and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai identified five industrial chemicals responsible for causing harm to the brain — lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (found in electric transformers, motors and capacitors), arsenic (found in soil and water as well as in wood preservatives and pesticides) and toluene (used in processing gasoline as well as in paint thinner, fingernail polish and leather tanning).”

    As far as I’m awe, vaccines don’t contain any of those chemicals.

    • Shank says:

      P.S. – Obviously, ‘awe’ should be ‘aware’.

    • SavageTMR says:

      My link was incorrect. Thank you for pointing that out.

    • Vaccines may not contain those chemicals but we would all be shocked and surprised at how many of our every day use items contain lead. Not to mention the chemicals used in conventional farming and to top it off: Genetically Modified Organisms.

      It’s ALL connected. Vaccines are not the only thing to blame.

      Let’st take simple cotton for example. Did you know that cotton is one of the leading recipient crops of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides in our grand nation? Here’s a quote from the article (which I will also link to, here), “Cotton is considered the world’s ‘dirtiest’ crop due to its heavy use of insecticides, the most hazardous pesticide to human and animal health. Cotton covers 2.5% of the world’s cultivated land yet uses 16% of the world’s insecticides, more than any other single major crop (1).” WE WEAR THIS. EVERY DAY.

      Also, we don’t even really know what the ingredients in common household items are – shampoo, deodorant, etc.

      We need to look at everything. Vaccines are still suspect.

      • ProfessorTMR says:

        Agreed! None of us here at TMR think vaccines are the only thing to blame. There are a large number of everyday toxins that probably play into the current levels of chronic illness, and we would like to know them all.

    This Mommie is AWAKE! Watch out!

  6. nhokkanen says:

    Parents also are dealing with educators who view our children’s health comorbidities such as GI dysfunction as being behavioral or psychological issues rather medical conditions. Universities that partner with pharmaceutical companies are fostering graduates who become part of the fix-it-with-a-pill mentality.

    Archived by the National Autism Association:
    “If the gastrointestinal disorder is recognized and medical treatment is effective, the problem behaviours may diminish. When abdominal pain or discomfort is a setting event, psychotropic medications are likely to be ineffective and may even aggravate the problem if they have adverse gastrointestinal effects.”

    Thank you, Savage, for this inspiring article to get my morning off to a great and energetic start!

    We, the Thinking Parents, are indeed making a difference. Collectively, we have saved TENS OF THOUSANDS (if not more) children from a lifetime of disability, chronic illness, suffering, and death.

    Onward, Thinking Moms and Dads…we have many more parents to wake up to the evil machinations of the pharmaceutical companies, the unbelievable arrogance and ignorance of pediatricians and other members of the medical community, the unholy alliance between our elected officials and corporate lobbyists, and the corporate-bought-and-paid-for media blackout of the myriad of ways our children (and all of us) are being poisoned for profit.

    I want to share an excellent quote from U.S. District Judge H. Lee Sarokin which is from a 1992 pretrial ruling ordering the tobacco companies to turn over internal research documents. Note how his poignant and condemning words equally apply to Big Pharma, Big Agriculture, Big “Food”, and Big Chemical:

    “All too often in the choice between the physical health of consumers
    and the financial well-being of business, concealment is chosen over
    disclosure, sales over safety, and money over morality. Who are these
    persons who knowingly and secretly decide to put the buying public
    at risk solely for the purpose of making profits and who believe
    that illness and death of consumers is an apparent cost of their own
    prosperity?”

    Wow, Judge Sarokin hit the nail on the head with that one!

    Thanks again for this rousing article!

  8. Concerned says:

    The source you cite for a link between vaccines and autism, epilepsy or developmental delays itself states:

    “The research team acknowledges that there isn’t a causal connection between exposure to any single chemical and behavioral or neurological problems …”

    Perhaps the findings of the CDC and FDA came to the same discovery. So my question is, if there isn’t a causal connection, what authority would either of these institutions actually have to take action?

    • SavageTMR says:

      You’ve taken that quote out of context. Here is the rest of the sentence–it’s too challenging to isolate the effects of each chemical to come to such conclusions. But they say the growing body of research that is finding links between higher levels of these chemicals in expectant mothers’ blood and urine and brain disorders in their children should raise alarms about how damaging these chemicals can be. The developing brain in particular, they say, is vulnerable to the effects of these chemicals, and in many cases, the changes they trigger are permanent.

      I’d say that these chemicals do in fact harm the brain as the title of the article clearly states.

    • Meghan Dawson says:

      I think they’ve known all along and had scientific evidence of harm and chosen to hold it back for fear of inciting a mass of lawsuits and the end of the vaccination program in the US. And now they’ve realized that quietly removing one toxin didn’t help, and may have even hurt so now they’re in full denial and misdirection mode. http://www.prweb.com/releases/ASOT/Thimerosal/prweb11598819.htm
