Each of these parents are advocates for informed consent, which starts with researching vaccines. Executive Director Miste Gardner-Karlfeldt along with Board Member Dr Rosie Gallegos-Main, and Executive Committee Member/Toxicologist Ashley Cates were interviewed by KIVI 6 On Your Side - ABC Boise/Nampa, Idaho
Unfortunately, KIVI edited out the science that toxicologist Ashley Cates shared with the interviewer. Ashley's 'motherly intuition' lead her to deeply research vaccines and what she found was shocking.
I immersed myself in the world of vaccines and what people were saying and sharing about them. I read stories of vaccine injury, I learned about ingredients, I found out how common it is that parents are treated poorly by doctors for their hesitation to vaccinate, and so much more. Some of what I saw posted in these groups was shocking to me, upsetting, and most of the time sounded ludicrous. There were times I rolled my eyes and assumed the information I just read was nothing but a hoax – and then I realized later that it was true.
What information did this toxicologist use to make an informed vaccine decision for her children? It's all right here: Researching Vaccines: Where to Start
Learn more about vaccines from Ashley's un-aired interview with KBOI.
"Whether you're pro-vaccine, anti-vaccine, or fall somewhere in the middle, the questions you need to ask yourselves are as follows: Do you want to live in a world, where you cannot freely refuse a medical procedure that carries risk of injury or death? I'm not questioning your comfort level with today's vaccine schedule, because today's vaccine schedule will change. New vaccines and additional doses are added all the time. Children today receive as many as 49 doses of 14 vaccines before they reach age six, which is roughly 12 times higher than the number of vaccines administered to children back in 1940.
With more than 220 new vaccines in the developmental pipeline for children and adults...and no end in sight..the question you must ask yourself is ARE YOU CERTAIN you will be 100% comfortable with vaccines that are added to the mandated list in the future?
If you say that yes, you're comfortable, then you're either:
a) not expecting to be a parent or grandparent
b) don't have to worry about it because your kids are grown and out of the house
c) lying to prove a point.
No critical thinker, no honest person, would ever sign off on the sight-unseen vaccine schedule of the future. And yet that's what you're doing when you condemn the people who are fighting for your right to refuse. YOU have the right to refuse, should you ever choose to use it, because the very "anti-vaccine" people you demonize have been fighting for us all.
Right now, the burden of "herd immunity" falls on small children, but that is changing. Vaccine manufacturers see an untapped market in adult vaccines and are coming for you next. <Learn the FACTS about herd immunity>
What will you do if your state, your employer, or your insurance company forces you to get a vaccine that you simply don't want? It hasn't happened to you yet, but if the right to refuse is eroded, it will happen to you sooner than you might think.
Who then will you turn to? Your legislators who get campaign donations from pharmaceutical companies? The CDC that has former pharma executives sitting on the board? Who will you turn to if you ever want to say no? There will be no one.
Once we enter the slippery slope of removing and individual's right to refuse medical procedures that carry a risk of injury or death, once we remove an individual's right to speak for him/herself and his/her children, we open ourselves up to an insidious new era, where other drugs and other procedures can be mandated."

There’s more information on other aspects of the vaccine issue, such as the lack of proper testing of vaccines, the major flaws with the studies performed by the manufacturers, and their lack of liability. There’s the issue of waning protection or having no protection at all (vaccine failure)… There’s post-vaccination viral shedding and asymptomatic transmission, antibodies not indicating immunity, germ theory vs. terrain theory, Th1 and Th2 immune responses, etc. You will come across all of this if you can make it a priority to invest the time. CONS OF VACCINATING
List of Ingredients Explained – Some of the ingredients listed on the CDC chart are not clarified. E.g. “WI-38”, which is aborted fetal tissue.
Vaccine Package Inserts – Information supplied by the manufacturer of the vaccine, which includes potential adverse effects following vaccination.
National Vaccine Information Center – Comprehensive website that provides information on vaccines.
Here are some of the other comments from the KVIV facebook page. What do YOU have to add?
Are any of you who are advocating for vaccines aware that most vaccine inserts state..
"This vaccine has not been been evaluated for its carcinogenic ,(cancer causing), mutagenic, (ability to mutate genes) potentials, or for impairment in fertility.
Doesn't sound like they have been proven safe to me. So what happens when an entire generation of children can no longer reproduce. Sorry, they said they were safe? Will that somehow make it better? Tread lightly. You advocate for mandatory vaccination and you will not have a choice when they decide to add whatever vaccines to the schedule they deem necessary. You may be fine with the schedule now, but wait until they add a few more. Wait until your grandchildren are receiving over 100 vaccines before their 18th birthday. 74 doses is already too much for me. I will not set my child on fire to keep yours warm.
California made it mandatory for vaccines 2 years ago. Thank god I don't live there. This is a slippery slope....This means you have no freedom of choice for your child's health and wellness.
What are YOUR thoughts?
