In essence, society’s attention has become focused on vaccination, focused solely on this health treatment. But TREATMENT is not what creates health, treatment is what changes or manages a persons’ symptoms of poor health. Instead of focusing solely on the treatment, there needs to be a shift. We need to evaluate the treatment in the context of the whole - what is working about the treatment? What needs improving? What is failing completely? How does the treatment affect evolution of the species? And how can health be supported moving forward so that the treatment is no longer needed?

The Pharmaceutical Reach: Part 14 of 14 - The Legal System

Feel free to jump to the heading "Safety Net #7" below, everything stated until then is a repeat of what was written on the first post.

 

When it comes to products that are available for purchase, there are many safety nets that are established, to protect consumers from dangerous products, and to ensure that products are designed, manufactured, and distributed in such a way that potential harms can be more easily minimized, and/or identified more quickly once in distribution. Unfortunately, there are shortcomings in many of these consumer safety nets, or industry has found a way to bypass some of those protective measures. As a result, unsafe products continue to be made and distributed widely. What’s more unique to vaccines though, is that every single safety net that was established to protect people and ensure product safety, all those protective measures have actually all been neutralized by the pharmaceutical industry. This neutralization has happened either by direct financial funding from pharma, or indirectly through Governmental conflicts of interest that affect internal policy, bureaucracy, and legislation. But before explaining how the consumer protective safety nets have been neutralized when it comes to vaccines, I’ll first list what those protective measures were, or should be. (Bolding in the list below denotes which topic point will be discussed in this article).

 

The consumer safety nets for vaccine products are:

  1. Government and our political leaders who represent the people

  2. Federal agencies that oversee vaccine regulation, research, safety, and distribution: These agencies include: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), The Institute of Medicine (IOM). Yes, these agencies are all based in the United States, however their policy are often adopted on a global scale.

  3. Scientific research and medical journals

  4. Our doctors and the institutions where they are educated and employed

  5. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)

  6. The media

  7. The legal system
     

Safety Net #7: The legal system

In this article, we will be discussing how the legal system is supposed to play a role in protecting the public, and how the legal system as a safety measure has been compromised by pharmaceutical financial influence.

 

The final consumer protection safety measure is the legal system. The legal system is in place, so that manufacturers who produce a harmful product,  either by error, accident, or intentionally through willful negligence, those manufacturers are held accountable for the harm resulting from that product. But this safety measure has been completely removed for vaccine consumers. This was done in the US, through legislation implemented in 1986. Other countries have adopted similar legislation (Canada did not). As a result, an American vaccine injured person cannot sue the pharmaceutical companies. Instead, all American vaccine injuries are evaluated through an administrative process, where the pharmaceutical companies are not even involved.

The process that applicants go through is sometimes referred to as vaccine court. But this court does not operate at all like an actual court, and many barriers are put in place against the parents. This is explained by Robert F Kennedy, from an interview he gave on episode three of the Vaccines Revealed documentary (Link Here) he said,:

...not only do [manufacturers] avoid the liability but they also avoid the discovery, the depositions, the documents searches, all those things that would explore and scrutinize the decision making that are taking place in that vaccine company.

 

...you want to see how these same companies, these pharmaceutical companies are behaving when they have this big defense bar looking over their shoulders, and suing them and getting $100 million and billion dollar settlements year after year after year or judgements year after year for their pharmaceutical products. Why would that same company behave any differently when it comes to vaccines? Of course the answer is, they don't.

 

The thing is that nobody it looking at them and nobody is allowed to look at them, and not only that but the congress not only made them immune from any liability, but they also made it very easy to bring a vaccine to market. So you don't have all these kind of burdens, hoops, and impediments and testing. You don't have for example double blind placebo testing of big populations.

 

Robert F Kennedy Jr stated, that in vaccine court, there is no deposition – which is where witnesses provide sworn out-of-court testimony. Deposition is used to gather information as part of the legal discovery process and, in limited circumstances, may be used at trial. He also explained that there is no discovery - which is a pre-trial procedure in a lawsuit in which each party, through the law of civil procedure, can obtain evidence from the other party or parties by means of discovery devices such as a request for answers to interrogatories, request for production of documents, request for admissions and depositions. Discovery can be obtained from non-parties using subpoenas. When a discovery request is objected to, the requesting party may seek the assistance of the court by filing a motion to compel discovery.

 

And finally, the vaccine court process does not allow for class action lawsuits

 

If a vaccine injured person is successful in proving their case through the vaccine administrative process, the pharmaceutical company still is not held ethically or financially responsible for the harm that their product caused. Instead tax-payers unknowingly pay those settlements from a $0.75 tax on the sale of every vaccine administered within the US. To date, over 3 billion dollars in damages have been paid to US citizens from this fund since the late 1980s.

 

In the upcoming articles, I will discuss more about the failed program referred to as vaccine court.

 

To conclude this 13 part series on the various failed vaccine consumer safety nets, I will leave you with a 17 minute video (Here). This video covers many of the discussion points made throughout this series. The male voice you hear throughout this video, is that of Dr. Kroger, from National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD); Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The female voice you hear asking questions is that of Marcella Piper-Terri. (To refresh your memory on who she is, read Here
