Why I NEVER Vax'd My Children
by Wendy Lydall, author of "Raising a Vaccine Free Child"
My first child was born in a police state in which two of the vaccines on the childhood schedule were compulsory. The punishment for non-compliance was a fine, and the fine had to be paid over and over again, every day, until the vaccination was done. If you didn’t pay the fines you had to appear in court, and you could be locked up.
This posed a problem for me as I was planning to not comply with the BCG vaccine which was one of the compulsory vaccines. My baby was born prematurely, and at that time the vaccine industry required jabs to be done according to gestational age, not according to age since birth. I was told that I must do the BCG vaccine at four months. This meant that I had time to figure out how I was going to do battle with the authorities.
Back then the South African childhood vaccination schedule consisted of one dose of BCG vaccine at birth (supposed to prevent tuberculosis), three doses of oral polio vaccine (OPV) starting at three months, three doses of DPT vaccine (supposed to prevent diphtheria, whooping cough and tetanus) also starting at three months, and one dose of measles vaccine at 9 months.
These days the schedules of some countries have 41 doses of vaccine before the fifth birthday, and they either start at birth or at six weeks.
Oral polio was the other vaccine that was compulsory when my first child was born. I intended to allow her to have the three doses, not because it was compulsory, but because I was afraid of polio.
A pamphlet from the government said that three doses of OPV would make a child immune to polio for life. I believed that the oral vaccine was harmless. Only later did studies in India show that OPV causes “paralysis-vaccine associated paralytic polio” (VAPP). The “number of children developing polio due to vaccine is high and on increase” ~~ PMID 15532129.
I was not aware that there are cheap and effective cures for polio that are spurned by pharmaceutical medicine.
The second time I took my baby to the clinic for oral polio vaccine there was a mum there with a nine month old. The nurse asked her, “Is he allergic to egg?” She replied, “I don’t know. I’ve never given him egg.” The nurse then injected him with the egg vaccine.
The reason why I was not going to accept the vaccines on the schedule that entered through the skin was because I had myself experienced severe adverse reactions to vaccination. I had lingering health problems that resulted from these reactions.
Many members of my family and extended family had experienced severe adverse reactions. One had died from vaccination. At that point in time I thought that vulnerability to adverse reactions ran in families, and that our family was one of those rare families that was susceptible.
In fact, vaccine injury is not at all rare. The only thing that is rare is doctors acknowledging vaccine damage when they see it. Most victims of vaccine injury are told by their doctor, “The vaccine was not the cause. The timing is just a coincidence.”
Two months after my baby had the third dose of oral polio vaccine I received a letter from the city council informing me that it was time for her fourth dose. Then the clinic phoned me to say I must bring her in for the fourth dose because three doses are not enough to create immunity.
That was my first inkling that polio vaccine does not work and is not the reason for the decline of the polio pandemic that started in 1884. The modern injected polio vaccines contain cells from aborted babies. There are no biological, prospective nor retrospective studies on the consequences of injecting human cells into tiny babies. However, there are epidemiological studies which show that the human cells in vaccines are linked to the epidemic of autism.
My plan for my day in court was to present a comparison between the rate of bad reactions to BCG vaccine with the bad effects of the disease. You can see that at this point I thought that the BCG vaccine actually worked.
I was so naïve that I thought the authorities collected data on the incidence of bad reactions. I knew that no one had ever recorded the fact that I and my family members had suffered severe reactions to vaccination, but I thought that the authorities surely would have studied samples of the population to see what proportion of them suffered severe injuries. How wrong I was.
Another thing I was ignorant of is that judges tend to rule in favour of the vaccine industry no matter how much reasonable evidence about vaccine damage they are presented with. I thought that once I had obtained the figures I would be able to rattle them off when I appeared in court, and the judge would be impressed.
I proceeded to look for the facts and figures that I needed. While I was about it I decided to collect data on the adverse effects of measles vaccine and DPT vaccine as well as BCG vaccine.
In those days one had to pay for a search on Medline, but it didn’t cost much. I was astonished to discover that no one had ever collected proper data on the adverse effects of vaccines. I did find one study on the adverse effects of measles vaccine, but by reading it I could see that they had deliberately diminished and pruned the data. They certainly were not looking for long-term adverse effects. They did acknowledge one death caused by the vaccine, but they said that was okay because measles kills at a higher rate.
Four months came and went. No one issued me with a fine for not accepting BCG vaccine. Even though DPT vaccine was not compulsory, I got a call from the chief nurse at the local clinic who said, “If diphtheria breaks out in this area we will blame you.” I was frightened. I did not yet know that science had proven the diphtheria vaccine to be 100% ineffective, but I did know that the majority of the people living in our area were not vaxxed against diphtheria.
The apartheid government was not offering vaccines other than BCG to people who had melanin in their skin. It was their policy to not spend money on services for the disenfranchised.
Rotary was vaccinating black children against polio, and the government forcibly vaccinated black babies with BCG soon after birth without telling the parents what it was for. Their motive for this was that they did not want whites to be infected with TB germs by their black employees.
In the suburb where we lived the whites were outnumbered 10 to 1 by black people who were crammed into the tiny servants’ quarters behind each house. Only 20% of the population of South Africa was vaccinated against diphtheria, so why was my child going to prove a threat?
The reason why I was not taken to court was that the government was beginning to suffer some effects from international sanctions. By persecuting me they would have attracted attention to the fact that they were not vaccinating the disenfranchised 80% of the population.
I was not afraid of TB because I knew that everyone in South Africa was infected with the germ that causes TB, but only the malnourished and badly-housed developed symptoms.
It was only much later that I learned that BCG vaccine does not only fail to prevent TB, it actually increases the risk of TB developing. I was not yet aware that TB is easy to cure with homeopathy.
While there were no scientific studies on adverse effects there was plenty of anecdotal evidence of harm done by vaccines. There were articles in medical journals written by doctors who had witnessed severe cases, and there were articles by parents in “alternative” magazines.
The internet was not yet a thing. I spoke widely about vaccine damage, and started hearing stories from friends and acquaintances. For instance, “My cousin was paralysed by polio vaccine. The doctors give it a fancy name, but we know it was the vaccine”.
I was so shocked by what I was hearing that I decided I needed to share the information with other parents. I started writing a book about vaccination.
I did my research by reading articles in medical journals, writing questioning letters to medical authorities in various countries, asking questions of parents, and consulting with GPs about infectious diseases.
One GP told me that the childhood diseases like measles and chicken pox reduce the risk of chronic diseases like cancer later on. It was hard work searching for scientific studies that either proved or disproved that theory.
Eventually I found twenty four studies that proved the theory to be true. I have now labelled the childhood diseases the “self-resolving diseases”. I discovered that these diseases need to be properly managed to keep the patient safe, and that doctors and nurses are trained to treat them in ways that cause complications like pneumonia, encephalitis and death.
My research also led me to learn the true history of smallpox vaccination and the fraud committed by Louis Pasteur, the revolting ingredients that are included in vaccines, and a variety of ways of curing the bad infectious diseases.
In countries with oppressive vax laws, not vaxxing can have serious financial consequences. Parents can be forced out of work because they can’t put their kids in daycare or kindergarten, parents can be fined directly, or the family can suffer from not receiving welfare payments. I was not subjected to any of these problems. But not vaxxing also has social consequences.
Some friends and relatives who knew that I was not vaxxing accused me of threatening their children. I would point out that only 20% of people in our society were vaxxed, and I would ask them, “Your child is vaccinated, and you believe that vaccines work, so why do you think my child is a danger to yours?” But they were still adamant that my child was a danger to theirs.
Vaccination is the only medical procedure where, if it fails, those who choose to remain free of toxic injections from Big Pharma, are blamed. One friend from school days cut me off because she did not want my child to play with hers. On the other hand, I had plenty of well-educated friends who also did not vax.
We moved to New Zealand when my eldest was five. The Public Health nurse sent a form home from school for me to fill in. I wrote “not applicable” across the list of vaccines. I was invited to meet with the nurse, and she quickly realised that she was not going to be able to intimidate me.
When that same child was ten years old a notice came from her school asking for permission to inject her with Hep B vaccine. As is the custom in New Zealand, the date of vaccination day was not mentioned. They deliberately do not tell parents the date so that children will not be kept home on the day.
I asked the school principal to let me know the date so I could keep her home. She promised to do so, but forgot. I was not worried that someone might jab my daughter because I knew that if someone tried she would scream and fight and run home, but I didn’t want her to suffer the psychological effects of seeing her class mates being led away to be sacrificed to Mammon.
She was very upset when she saw it happening. The school principal apologetically phoned me and asked me to fetch her. This drew it to the attention of the other children that she was not being done. In the following weeks she was told a number of times, “You’re going to die of hepatitis B”, to which she would reply, “No I’m not, because I’m not going to catch it.”
Five weeks after vaccination day the girls were pricking their fingers and mixing their blood to become “blood brothers”, which is strange terminology for feminist New Zealand. My daughter told them, “That’s how you catch hepatitis B”.
