Little Hannah Poling was just 19 months old when she received five shots as part of the usual vaccination program. These shots would severely aggravate an underlying mitochondrial disorder which would result in a brain disorder; with features of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Prior to the vaccinations little Hannah was a normal toddler with appropriate verbal development. Within 48 hours of the vaccines her life would be irreparably and irretrievably changed. She developed a high fever, inconsolable crying and would choose to no longer walk. She no longer slept through the night and soon the signs of autism were obvious. Hannah started spinning behavior, staring at lights and stopped speaking for a time. This seemingly once normal child now requires one-on-one care at all times. Her parents realized that their child developed autism from the critical point when she received her vaccines.

 

The pro-vaccine crowd has cried foul for years now denying that including a mercury based preservative in children’s vaccines had any link to the autism explosion in this country. The denials were steadfast and all-encompassing. Now they have been debunked because the story above about little Hannah has been confirmed by the United States Department of Health and Human Services. In a decision by the government, the family of Hannah Poling is entitled to compensation from a federal vaccine injury fund. Finally after years of fighting against the powerful and rich vaccine and pharmaceutical lobbies, parents can sleep a little easier tonight. The first crack in the denials has occurred and little Hannah Poling might just be the tipping point toward the truth.

 

That is all this has ever been about folks. The parasites that support the mega-corporations will pretend it is not about the truth but in the end their lies are being debunked. I can hear the defenders of the indefensible already moving the goal posts. They will claim that this decision adds more questions than it answers; nonsense. They will try and say that it only proves a link if there is a rare mitochondrial disorder to begin with; whatever. Remember that prior to this decision their answer had always been; “there is no proven link between vaccines and autism spectrum disorders.” Well now there is and it is too late in the game to change the rules. The defenders of greed had their position and it was not nuanced. They said NO CONNECTION, period. Now the government says there IS a connection, period.

 

The facts have always been in front of us if we bothered to look into the eyes of how soulless we have become as a country. Just a couple of decades ago the autism rate was 1 in every 2000 births and now it is 1 in every 150. SOMETHING caused that spike. At the same time vaccine companies decided to mass produce vaccines and maximize profits using a preservative. The only problem is the preservative contained one the most deadly toxins known to man; mercury. The vaccine industry even realized something must be wrong and pulled the mercury in 2001; hardly the move of an industry that doesn’t consider the link valid.

 

You will hear a lot from the pro-vaccine crowd. You will hear them changing their tunes about there being no connection. They will minimize this court ruling but it reveals that there is a connection. You will hear faux indignation claiming damage done to children because people will not vaccinate their children. Remember, no one on the anti-vaccine side is advocating against vaccinations; just against putting poison in them to increase profits. The bottom line is that they can bemoan and diminish this decision all day long and at the end they will not be able to escape the truth of little Hannah. She was a normal toddler until she received her vaccinations. After that she became autistic. The government now agrees and no level of subterfuge will change that.

Hopefully this is just the tipping point. It is an uphill battle against the powerful and wealthy. For years they cried there was no connection and now that has been soundly debunked. Hopefully we can look forward to a day when the truth is all that matters; not greed and profit. Hopefully money will not matter more than the little Hannah’s of the world; trapped inside themselves.
