Jenny McCarthy: Julie Gerberding Must Go!
I'm asking all parents and autism groups to join me in demanding Julie Gerberding's
immediate resignation as Director of the CDC.
On Monday, March 10th, beginning at 9:00am Eastern Daylight Time, let's all start
calling the White House and ask President Bush & Laura Bush to demand Julie
Gerberding's resignation for incompetence during the autism epidemic. The White
can be reached at: 202-456-1414
Also, on the same day, please call your local Congressperson and Senators from your
state and ask them to call for her resignation, too.
Julie Gerberding has led the CDC for 6 years during a time when the autism epidemic
has only gotten worse. Despite tens of thousands of children who declined just like
Hannah Poling, Ms. Gerberding stood before cameras yesterday defiant, cold, and
defensive. Where is her humanity in the face of such tragedy? Why couldn't she have
said, "We at CDC want to make sure what happened to Hannah doesn't happen to any
other children, we want to make vaccines safe"?
Rather than listen to the heartbreaking stories of so many parents, you can be sure
that Ms. Gerberding is spending her time right now trying to get the Spin Machine
up and running to minimize, confuse, and deceive the American public.
The autism epidemic won't end until we fix the vaccine schedule by reducing total
vaccines, separating shots, waiting until our kids are older to begin shots, greening
our vaccines, and screening for at-risk kids. Ms Gerberding has stood by and watched
self-interested parties more than triple our vaccine schedule and I'm certain her
inactivity to help our kids will continue.
The chances of Ms. Gerberding taking the radical steps to reform the CDC and reform
our vaccine schedule to make it kid-safe are zero! We need a new CDC Director who
is an open-minded reformer and who recognizes that we are experiencing an epidemic
of autism, which Ms. Gerberding has never publicly admitted.
Please, parents and national autism organizations, let's all help make our voices
heard on Monday.
