Can vaccines lead to autism?

I saw a video today that really made me mad. Julie Gerberding admits on CNN that vaccines can lead to autism (in a round-about way, of course). Why does the government continue to just skirt around the subject, while so many children suffer? It boggles my mind! Here is a link to the video:

CDC Chief admits that vaccines can lead to autism

Just to be clear, I'm not necessarily anti-vaccine. But I DO think the government needs to step up to the plate and stop putting dangerous toxins into the vaccines (aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, ether, etc), and start being more honest with the public. And as parents, we need to pray earnestly about how to approach each of our kids' vaccination schedules. Obviously every kid is not affected by vaccines. But so many clearly are.

This book has been a great resource for me. I don't agree with all of what Dr. Sears says on differing subjects, but this is a very simply laid-out book of information on each vaccine. He's not anti-vaccine...he just thinks there are ways to vaccinate more safely.

If you're interested, here are some telling pictures taken at a rally in D.C.

I agree completely! I'm glad it's finally getting out into the media so much now. It's crazy how many children are affected by vaccines.
