Vaccination must be saved from reproach at all costs. Who cares how many children are killed if only vaccination may be saved from dishonor. It is up to parents to put an end to this crippling and maiming of children. It is the sacred duty of all parents to protect their children from all harm. If the medical profession is not honorable enough to abandon this highly remunerative, though evil and deadly practice, it behooves parents to cut their professional throats.

Will it be urged that while vaccination is often productive of harm and death, it produces less of these than it prevents? If so, I shall show that this is not so. But, grant for a moment the truth of the assertion, it is still true that to force such a dangerous process upon one is unjustifiable. It is a danger and we each have a right to choose between two dangers. Compulsory vaccinatlon is a crime.

The Christian Herald, England, July 7, 1927, carries an account of a smallpox epidemic, of a very serious type, in 15 departments (counties) in France, with a death rate of nearly 50 per cent in women and about 33 per cent in men. All of these cases were vaccinated people--many of the victims having been vaccinated as many as three times. If vaccination protects, why did it fail in these cases?

In our army during the Spanish American War and in the Philippines the soldiers had been vaccinated, not only annually, but every six weeks. Chief Surgeon Lippincott said "Vaccination is carried on as regularly as post drill." Yet the official report shows 276 cases of smallpox in 1899 with 78 deaths; 246 cases in 1900 with 113 deaths; and 125 cases with 37 deaths in 1901; the case fatality of nearly fifty per cent, in 1900 being the highest ever recorded for this disease in the army -- a well vaccinated army, if there ever was one.

In 1872 Japan passed a compulsory vaccination law which uras rigidly enforced. But smallpox continued to ravage that country. In 1885 another law was passed requiring revaccination every seven years. From 1886 to 1892 there were 25,474,370 vaccinations, re-vaccinations and re-re-vaccinations recorded in Japan. During these same seven years, 1886 to 1892, Japan had 156,175 cases of smallpox, with 38,979 deaths or a case-fatality of nearly 25 per cent which exceeds the smallpox death-rate of the pre-vaccination period when nobody was vaccinated. In a single year (1893) Japan had 41,898 cases of smallpox with 11,852 deaths.

In 1896 the Japanese Parliment passed an act, which was immediately signed by the Mikado, requiring every resident of Japan, whatever his or her station in life, to be vaccinated and revaccinated every five years. The act was rigidly enforced under severe penalties. Baron Takalira boasted in London in 1906, at the Jubilee Dinner of the Society of Medical Officers Of Health of England that:

"There are no anti-vaccinationists in Japan. Every child is vaccinated before it is six months old, revaccinated when it enters school at six years and again re- vaccinated at fourteen years of age when going to the middle school, and the men are re-vaccinated before entering the army, while a further re-vaccination is enforced whenever an outbreak of smallpox occurs."

Notice the last part of this statement. If vaccination prevents smallpox, how do "outbreaks of smallpox" occur in such a thoroughly vaccinated country? There can be but one answer--namely; Vaccination does not protect.

This compulsory vaccination law became effective in Japan in 1896. In 1897 there were 49,946 cases of smallpox in Japan, with 2,276 deaths from this cause. In 1908 there were 10,067 cases with 5,837 deaths officially recorded.

From 1889 to 1908 Japan had 171,611 cases of smallpox with 47,919 deaths. If anybody thinks that vaccination, re-vaccination, and re-re-vaccination prevents or mitigates smallpox, let him look at these figures. Here is a case fatality of nearly 30 per cent. It would be interesting to know to what extent the disease was mitigated by vaccination in those 47,919 fatal cases of post-vaccinal smallpox.
