In a recent, public Facebook post, mother Jessica Fithen posted a photo of her son with the following statement:
"So, I finally cried tonight. It's taken a few days to sink in. I've gone from white hot anger, to disbelief, to complete mind-numbing sadness. Tonight I stood in the shower and sobbed like a little kid, thinking back to 2004, when my son was born, only a short time after Dr. Thompson finished cooking up his CDC data, lying to parents about the risk of vaccinating their babies.
So here- here is my data. Here is my statistic. He is a real child, a life, not some number tucked away. And he will not be hidden."
She wrote this because Dr. William Thompson, a leading researcher at the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recently went public about the fact that, in 2003, the CDC manipulated and hid data that obscured an upwards of 340 percent higher incidence in autism in the African-American boys who received the MMR vaccine.
On Saturday, August 30, Tulsa World posted a piece written by Suzy Cohen, RPh otherwise known as "America's Most Trusted Pharmacist." Cohen wrote:
"Like many studies that naive consumers believe, the data was statistically skewed to hide the risks from parents, pediatricians and the public. My heart aches for all the parents who unknowingly trusted…
It’s so sad. Thompson has worked for the government agency for more than a decade and confirmed that “the CDC knew about the relationship between the age of first MMR vaccine and autism incidence in African-American boys as early as 2003, but chose to cover it up.”
Jessica Fithen is one of many parents who believe that they unknowingly trusted and believe that the CDC has denied their children a voice. These parents demand that their children be heard. Parents like Jessica who believe that their child suffered or suffers from vaccine-induced autism or another sort of vaccine injury are posting moving videos on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

Besides the parents worldwide who believe that their child's autism was caused by a vaccine, the Italian Health Ministry has also conceded that the MMR vaccine has caused autism and the DTaP vaccine package insert from the Sanofi Pasteur pharmaceutical company, clearly displayed on a U.S. government website, lists autism on page 11 as an adverse event reported because of the vaccine:
