American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP): The AAP must reverse their support for using mercury preservatives in childhood vaccines.

    1. Petition by

      SafeMinds

To prevent injecting mercury (thimerosal) into pregnant women, infants and children around the world, support is needed to eliminate mercury from all medical, pharmaceutical and personal care products. The second most toxic element on Earth has no place in 21st century medicine.

To:
AAP Director, American Academy of Pediatrics
Louis Z. Cooper, Columbia University
Shane K. Green, University of Toronto
Walter A. Orenstein, Emory Vaccine Center
Please reconsider your endorsement of AAP support to allow the unrestricted use of the mercury preservative Thimerosal in childhood vaccines.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

    1. Keep telling AAP they are wrong!

      AAP Backs-up and Detours Away from Responsible Medicine - AGE OF AUTISM

      Around the end of the year, the American Academy of Pediatrics gave the children of the world their gift by expressed support for the World Health Organization's request for an open-ended exemption for the continuing use of mercury-based preservatives in vaccines.[1] AAP's support for this policy signals a dangerous disregard for children's health and sets a precedent that could reverberate throughout medical and chemical policy initiatives - rolling-back positions taken due to safety concerns without proof of safety.

    3. More signatures needed to stop mercury in medicine!

      We have almost reached 1000 signatures! Quite the accomplishment. I thank all those who have signed the petition for your support.

      Now, let's really turn up the heat. Every parent should be outraged at the AAP. I see some areas in the USA still haven't weighed in. When I map all of the signature locations I hope to see it covered from coast to coast to coast.

      Please reach out to 10 more people over the holidays and ask their support on this petition, or share it with Facebook or Twitter friends.

      And, as we end the year, SafeMinds could use your financial support too. Please take a moment to make a contribution to SafeMinds and support our work. visit www.safeminds.org

      Mercury is a known neurotoxin and should never be injected into anyone, especially a child. It's still in most flu shots.

      vaccines should be engineered and administered only to support health, never for profit or propoganda.

      because mercury is poison and we do not need to be poisoning our human race for the sake of the all mighty dollar.
