Mercury-Containing Vaccines

Parents of mercury/vaccine injured children, together with leaders and members of United Methodist Women, will gather at the Atlanta to call for the immediate protection of children from mercury- containing drugs.

The Simpsonwood Remembered Rally will take place on Friday, June 8, 2007 at 6:30 a.m. Following, at 9:30, scientists, physicians, and faith leaders will speak at a press conference on the urgency of this issue.


This rally marks the 7th Anniversary of closed-door meetings where federal officials, including some from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and representatives of the pharmaceutical industry, discussed a study showing a causal connection between mercury in vaccines and neuro- developmental disorders at the Simpsonwood Retreat.

Transcripts from the Simpsonwood meetings document great concern for shielding the pharmaceutical industry from liability despite the evidence discussed that indicated serious health risks to children from mercury-containing vaccines: "The medical legal findings in this study, causal or not, are horrendous ... So we are in a bad position from the standpoint of defending any lawsuits if they were initiated and I am concerned," Dr. Robert Brent is recorded as saying (p. 229 of the transcript).

This rally follows a symposium on the use of mercury in some vaccines and other drugs, sponsored by the United Methodist Women's Division at Simpsonwood. At this gathering, experts in the fields of science and law will educate members of the faith community on the dangers posed by mercury in vaccines and other drugs.

The Women's Division advocates informed consent before mercury-containing drugs or vaccinations are administered. They also advocate the immediate prioritization of mercury-free stocks of vaccines and drugs for pregnant women and newborns, and to ban the presence of mercury in vaccines and drugs.
