BREAKING: RI Senate Resolution Calls For The REPEAL Of The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act!
WHEREAS, The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) was signed into law on Nov 14, 1986, in order to reduce the potential financial liability of vaccine makers due to vaccine injury claims. The law gave vaccine manufacturers complete immunity from being sued when their vaccines cause serious harm or even death; and
WHEREAS, In addition, the NCVIA limits patients’ and parents’ ability to refuse vaccinations; and
WHEREAS, Since the childhood vaccine schedule was expanded in the 1980s, the rates of autism have skyrocketed along with the increases in the number of vaccines given to children; and
WHEREAS, In 2014, Dr. William Thompson came forward with a confession of scientific fraud at the Centers for Disease Control in regards to a study done in 2004, regarding the relationship between developing autism and the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine; and
WHEREAS, In August 2014, under Federal whistleblower protection, Dr. Thompson, a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, came forward with a confession stating that despite CDC’s claims to the contrary, the study done in 2004 showed a causative relationship between childhood vaccines and autism; and
WHEREAS Dr. Thompson released a statement through his attorney that he and his colleagues at the CDC had committed research fraud by destroying data showing a link between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and the development of autism in young children; and
WHEREAS, In 2016, the Director of the CDC, Thomas Frieden, sent a letter blocking Dr. William Thompson from testifying in a Tennessee court case involving a 16 year old boy who claims his autism was caused by the vaccine. The Director later stated that “Dr. William Thompson’s deposition testimony would not substantially promote the objectives of CDC or HHS”; and
