UPDATE: two youtubes featuring Jenny McCarthy, one on Larry King Live. The other is with her partner, Jim Carrey.
Big Pharma will portray McCarthy in a bad light. Focus on what she is saying, the content, her personal experience.
We first reported on McCarthy, July 2009 (see http://sandrafinley.ca/?p=1101). Her story is consistent with Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s documentation, in the same posting.

NOTE: James Montgomery “Commented” on this posting and I replied (see below). James is a professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine which has a long and strong connection to “Vaccines and Infectious diseases”.
A community’s method for dealing with conflicts-of-interest is interesting:
- what my Grandparents, Parents and community understood intuitively
- has almost been lost
- but is now in the process of being re-established because of science.
James’ comment exists in the context of a conflict-of-interest. The University of Saskatchewan has a long history of investment in vaccines (see **). The largest employer in my city, Saskatoon, is the University. Emails about vaccinations cause some people to exit this network. The professor attacks the personal experience of McCarthy and then lambasts me – an attack on my person, nothing to do with refuting the arguments.
Would this have happened 40 years ago? Or would the professor have been at-arms-length to the discussion because of possible conflicts-of-interest of his workplace?
TODAY – – bring on the science! MRI imaging of neural pathways in the brain show that if you give me information that is in conflict with my “deeply held belief”, my brain will bypass the centre for processing the information rationally. Anyone who is teaching or whose living is related to the use of vaccinations will have a “deeply held belief” about vaccines. (A general statement, not specifically James Montgomery.)
The science tells me there is no sense creating ill will. Similar to what was done intuitively in the past, the question of vaccines needs to be judged free from the influence of those whose neural pathways will not “hear” or process the information. Energy is directed with positive outcome to those who do not have their being tied up in the issue. Not because they are bad, but because we are human and each have a few defects! And to confound ourselves further – – I think I’m perfect! (ha!)
I am tempted to say things like: for people who are vaccinating, it is simply too threatening, on more than one level to have the discussion. Or, if I walked in their shoes, I am sure it would be difficult or impossible for me to have my work, reinforced by all my teachers and colleagues, brought into question. By a bunch of nincompoops to boot! Current research is saying: the person doesn’t even HEAR the argument. By no fault of their own.
I like James Montgomery. I want him and his partner to feel welcome in this community. I desire healthy relationships. It seems to me that the erosion of conflict-of-interest standards is detrimental to community-building.
** Regarding the development of vaccines at the University of Saskatchewan:
http://sandrafinley.ca/?p=1105 2009-11-19 H1N1 (or nukes or gmo’s or energy) in the context of “Selling Out”: the larger issue. Immune systems. TB. Constant Gardener.
What used to be called VIDO (Vaccine Infectious Diseases Organization, re-launched under the name InterVac – – University of Saskatchewan) is introduced through the book “The Constant Gardener” (movie of same name). I advise people to read the author’s real life comments in the book. Le Carré says the story in his book is a holiday card version of what the pharmaceutical corporations do in the real world. His books are well researched.

BACKGROUND, FOR NEWCOMERS:
Jenny McCarthy’s story was circulated earlier. (http://sandrafinley.ca/?p=1101 2009-07-27 This is all about the pharmaceutical, chemical and biotech corporations, and their collaborators in government. All at the expense of our interest in health. Some of it is heart-breaking. Autism, Kennedy, Psych Ward Story – – Scroll down to (6) A MOTHER’S JOURNEY IN HEALING AUTISM BY JENNY MCCARTHY.)

EXCERPT from the 2009 posting:
In her new book, Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism, actress Jenny McCarthy shares her emotional story of diagnosis, hope, …
. …. In recent years, the number of children diagnosed with autism has risen from 1 in every 500 children to 1 in 150 (UPDATE: The incidence is higher now.) — and science has not discovered a reason why. Jenny says she believes that childhood vaccinations may play a part. “What number will it take for people just to start listening to what the mothers of children who have seen autism have been saying for years, which is, ‘We vaccinated our baby and something happened.”
