Action Alert and Notice of Upcoming Hearing From Nat. Autism Assoc. October 04, 2004 8:35 PM

Action Alert and Notice of Upcoming Hearing From Nat. Autism Assoc. [To readers who are so inclined, the NAA is asking that you FAX or EMAIL CSPAN to televise the upcoming hearing (described below) because it is one you don't want to miss and one that all Americans should see!]. We need as many parents to do this as possible! Congressman Weldon and the HHS Appropriations Committee will hold the Influenza Vaccine Program hearing on Tuesday, October 5 at 9:30 a.m. in Room 2358 of the Rayburn Building, Washington, DC. The focus on the hearing will be flu vaccine, flu, and thimerosal and whether or not it is wise to recommend injecting thimerosal, a potent neurotoxin, contained in flu vaccine into pregnant women and children. A few of the latest toxicity studies on thimerosal will be presented. Tell CSPAN the public needs to know the dangers of thimerosal to pregnant women and children. Since this hearing is on the flu vaccine, perhaps CSPAN will be more willing to cover it since currently the media is focused on this upcoming flu season. Do not call CSPAN. They only accept faxes and emails. Here is the contact information: Fax your letter to: 202-737-6226 Email your letter to: events@c-span.org Send a personal note to them as soon as you can. Sample letter you may use to cut and paste is below. Be sure to write in your own personal information: Dear CSPAN, Please televise the following hearing: HHS Appropriations Committee Tuesday, October 5th, at 9:30 a.m. Room 2358 of the Rayburn Building Washington, DC. Thimerosal is a potent neurotoxin and is in this year's flu vaccine which is recommended for pregnant women and children. America needs to see the important hearing before Congress. Witnesses include: Dr. Julie Gerberding (Director of CDC), Dr. Anthony Fauci (Director, Nat'l. Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases), Dr. William Egan (FDA - Acting Director, Office of Vaccines Research and Review), Dr. Thomas Burbacher (University of Washington, Seattle), Dr. Richard Deth (Northeastern University, Boston), Dr. Mady Hornig (Columbia University, NYC), and Dr. Marie McCormick (Harvard School of Public Health, Boston and Committee Chair, past Chairperson of the IOM, Immunization Safety Review Committee) * * *  [ send green star]
