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: firstname.lastname@example.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:
