“I heard Michael Belkin tell how he lost his baby girl Lyla Rose after the hepatitis B vaccine, and I wondered. I then experienced the stonewalling and arrogant condescension of the “experts” when I simply asked for references to safety studies of the hepatitis B vaccine in newborns, and I was shocked.” – Jane Orient, M.D.
In 2000, AAPS released a press release which announced the physician group’s resolution for a moratorium on all government mandated vaccines.
