As we all know by now--the plan is to introduce the avian bird
flu---real or imagined--in order to bring in martial law.
Under that scenario all people can be forced to be vaccinated
or put in concentration camps. The vaccines themselves may
induce the full force of the predicted avian flu pandemic.
This bill wants to exempt the pharmacutical companies from
liability for the projected genocide created, and or other
results and sideffects, and the millions of lawsuits that
would follow.
Please send this to all US contacts.

NVIC Note: Yesterday we witnessed the Senate HELP Committee
pass this bill out of sub-committee. It is critical that you
take action today-immediately. This bill will go back to the
committee for a final review on Thursday-October 20, 2005 and
then go to the full Senate for a vote. Being led by Republican
Richard Burr (R-NC) and being spurred by fears of avian flu,
this bill was written and passed out of committee in a 24 hour
period. Most members did not even have the final language in
front of them.

The version that passed will broadly eliminate liability for
vaccines and drugs. Please read the press release, write to
the members of the HELP committee, write to your own Senator
and your own member of Congress. Pass this alert to your
family, friends and other organizations you are involved with.
Go to our website and take action right now! www.NVIC.org
Don't wait for someone else to do it.  This is a CODE RED
alert to anyone who is concerned about forced vaccination and
holding drug companies responsible for the products they
create. www.NVIC.org

WASHINGTON, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Vaccine
Information Center (NVIC) is calling the "Biodefense and
Pandemic Vaccine and Drug Development Act of 2005"(S. 1873),
which passed out of the U.S. Senate HELP Committee one day
after it was introduced "a drug company stockholder's dream
and a consumer's worst nightmare." The proposed legislation
will strip Americans of the right to a trial by jury if harmed
by an experimental or licensed drug or vaccine that they are
forced by government to take whenever federal health officials
declare a public health emergency.

The legislation's architect, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC),
Chairman of the HELP Subcommittee on Bioterrorism and Public
Health Preparedness, told the full HELP Committee yesterday
that the legislation "creates a true partnership" between the
federal government, the pharmaceutical industry and academia
to walk the drug companies "through the Valley of Death" in
bringing a new vaccine or drug to market. Burr said it will
give the Department of Health and Human Services "additional
authority and resources to partner with the private sector to
rapidly develop drugs and vaccines." The Burr bill gives the
Secretary of DHHS the sole authority to decide whether a
manufacturer violated laws mandating drug safety and bans
citizens from challenging his decision in the civil court

The bill establishes the Biomedical Advanced Research and
Development Agency (BARDA), as the single point of authority
within the government for the advanced research and
development of drugs and vaccines in response to bioterrorism
and natural disease outbreaks such as the flu. BARDA will
operate in secret, exempt from the Freedom of Information Act
and the Federal Advisory Committee Act, insuring that no
evidence of injuries or deaths caused by drugs and vaccines
labeled as "countermeasures" will become public.

Nicknamed "Bioshield Two," the legislation is being pushed
rapidly through Congress without time for voters to make their
voices heard by their elected representatives. Co-sponsored by
Republican Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), Senate
Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee Chairman Mike
Enzi (R-WY), and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Judd Gregg
(R-NH), the legislation will eliminate both regulatory and
legal safeguards applied to vaccines as well as take away the
right of children and adults harmed by vaccines and drugs to
present their case in front of a jury in a civil court of law.

"It is a sad day for this nation when Congress is frightened
and bullied into allowing one profit making industry to
destroy the seventh Amendment to the Constitution guaranteeing
citizens their day in court in front of a jury of their
peers," said Barbara Loe Fisher, president of NVIC. "This
proposed legislation, like the power and money grab by federal
health officials and industry in the Homeland Security Act of
2002 and the Project Bioshield Act of 2004, is an
unconstitutional attempt by some in Congress to give a
taxpayer- funded handout to pharmaceutical companies for drugs
and vaccines the government can force all citizens to use
while absolving everyone connected from any responsibility for
injuries and deaths which occur. It means that, if an American
is injured by an experimental flu or anthrax vaccine he or she
is mandated to take, that citizen will be banned from
exercising the Constitutional right to a jury trial even if it
is revealed that the vaccine maker engaged in criminal fraud
and negligence in the manufacture of the vaccine."

The federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is legally
responsible for regulating the pharmaceutical industry and
ensuring that drugs and vaccines released to the public are
safe and effective. Drug companies marketing painkillers, like
Vioxx, and anti-depressants, which have resulted in the deaths
and injuries of thousands of children and adults, are being
held accountable in civil court while the FDA has come under
intense criticism for withholding information about the drugs'
dangers from the public. Since 1986, vaccine makers have been
protected from most liability in civil court through the
National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in which Congress
created a federal vaccine injury compensation program (VICP)
that offers vaccine victims an alternative to the court
system. Even though the program has awarded nearly $2 billion
to victims of mandated vaccines, two out of three plaintiffs
are turned away.

"The drug companies and doctors got all the liability
protection they needed in 1986 but they are greedy and want
more," said Fisher. "And the federal health agencies want more
power to force citizens to use vaccines without having to
worry about properly regulating them. If the Burr bill passes,
all economic incentives to insure mandated vaccines are safe
will be removed and the American people are facing a future
where government can force them to take poorly regulated
experimental drugs and vaccines labeled as "countermeasures"
or go to jail. The only recourse for citizens will be to
strike down mandatory vaccination laws so vaccines will be
subject to the law of supply and demand in the marketplace.
The health care consumer's cry will be: No liability? No

parents of vaccine injured children in 1982 and co-founders
worked with Congress on the National Childhood Vaccine Injury
Act of 1986. For more information, go to http://www.nvic.org./
