Who is Katie Wright? She’s the mother of two children, 9 year old Mattias and 11 year old Christian. Christian has autism, and was the inspiration behind the creation of Autism Speaks, a foundation which creates awareness about autism and provides resources for parents and others who wish to learn more about it. The foundation has grown to be considered the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization.
There is a “huge disparity that makes up the autism spectrum. My son lives on the other side, the severely affected side of the spectrum. I am so proud of my 11-year-old son Christian – no one works harder (my opinion as his Mom!). However, Christian is not a savant, not a professor, not an artist, but just a typical kid struggling with severe autism. He was toilet-trained at age nine and needs 24-hour-a-day supervision because he has no awareness of danger. More to the point, Christian cannot be interviewed on talk shows because he cannot speak,” says Wright.
Before I go any further, this is a huge point to remember when it comes to autism. It’s an extremely wide spectrum, and a lot of children at one end of the spectrum are like Christian, and there are others who are ‘high functioning,’ and don’t have the same issues as the ones on the other end of the spectrum. Personally, I believe a lot of these kids do have what we’ve come to call autism, but on the other hand I think there are many who have been misdiagnosed, that don’t have the same biological characteristics as others and could actually represent a form of evolution, but that’s another topic.
The amount of children being diagnosed with autism continues to rise exponentially, and it’s that goes far beyond genetics.
Children with autism at certain ends of the spectrum are very different from those on another end of the spectrum, and this is showcased in multiple ways.
“This wide spectrum of autism really can become a tricky issue. I want the public to see the many gifts of people with autism and how much they contribute to our world. However, it is families like mine who frequently ask for the public’s help and support. It’s important that the public understand that we need more educational supports and more research money (especially environmental research money!) because high functioning individuals are, sadly, not the norm but the best-case scenario for our kids.”

Autism Speaks & Vaccines
Katie has given a number of interviews over the past decade regarding the foundation, Autism Speaks, and its stance on vaccines and autism. In an interview she gave a few years ago, she explains why her parents steered away from the causation aspect of autism. What’s the reason? It’s because they trust doctors and physicians and other academics without question. Putting our trust into others has caused many problems, especially because those we put our trust in, are putting their trust in corporations.
“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”
– Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard professor of medicine and former Editor-in-Chief of The New England Medical Journal
This is why today we see so much conflicting information. I’ve put more examples in the article linked below, which highlights eye-opening information about the science behind how most published research is likely false, a fact that not enough people are aware of nor pay attention to.
Dr. Peter Gotzche, co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration (the world’s most foremost body in assessing medical evidence), puts it quite nicely:
“The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don’t sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life…Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors…the reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their own doctors into the medicines they prescribe.”
You can read more about him, his work, and access the source (video) of his comment above, here.
He goes on to mention that, although doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology, they know virtually nothing about our medicines, which includes vaccines.
Katie explained that her parents had quite a simple philosophy, that doctors and PhD’s would lead them in the right direction. The funny thing about this is the fact it’s said that the majority of doctors believe vaccines are safe, but if we look at the science and the number of doctors and scientists trying to create awareness about this issue, their voice is never really heard and seems to be instantaneously shut down, something we’ll touch more on later.
She states that the general consensus is that autism is genetic, which is another issue in itself because today, there are literally hundreds of studies showing that autism is not just genetic, but can be caused by various environmental toxins, like prescription drugs during critical stages of fetal development, or agricultural pesticides, and much more. All of these have now been implicated in the development of autism, and yes, so have vaccines.
In the interview, Katie is asked at around the 9:20 mark by the interviewer:
“Here’s the part that I’m really struggling with, why couldn’t they (the parents of Katie, founders of Autism Speaks) get 20 % to go down the environmental rabbit hole, why couldn’t they get some portion of the dollars to say, ‘you know what, we’re hearing too many damn stories, our own grandson, we don’t have to make it the life mission of autism speaks but let’s to the real stuff, the vax un-vax stuff etc…Why couldn’t even that have happened?”
“I wish I knew, I’ve tried, I really really tried. I think that they were told a lot of promises, maybe lies would be the more accurate word, by some people in the science department that they were going to commit fairly to environmental science. They agreed to do some vaccine research, a million dollars was specifically raised for it…”
She went on to explain that the money wasn’t spent on vaccines at all, and instead “ridiculous” environmental research. Furthermore, she explains how he (the researcher) was from big Pharma, and he didn’t really have an interest in the children. “He became very powerful very fast. I would get phone calls from researchers and parents who tried to speak with him and he would basically just turn his back and walk away, or say something inappropriate like….ahhh, well..mmhhmmm but anecdotes aren’t science etc.”
“I could go on and on, every single one of his endeavours was a tremendous failure. He was disastrous with autism speaks.”
She also states at approximately the 15: 31 mark:
“We honestly haven’t talked about vaccines in many years because it led to too much arguing, and it led to just a lot of problems in our family. We couldn’t really talk about it.”
This is a great reflection of the overall general consciousness of this issue. The fact that ‘the brainwashers’ (big Pharma) can influence a human mind to react a certain way when bringing up the link between vaccines and autism really goes to show how much sway they have over our perceptions, not just with vaccines, but with various aspects that surround the human experience.
A Trip To The CDC
After this, she mentions how her father took a trip to the CDC, and he was extremely unimpressed with their vaccine safety research. This isn’t a surprise, even the ingredients used in vaccines, like aluminum, have actually gone through zero safety testing. There is not one study showing it’s safe to inject aluminum into babies, let alone mercury, aborted human fetal cells and more. These ingredients have just been presumed safe! How ridiculous is that? Especially when you consider the fact that scientists recently discovered some of the highest brain aluminum content every measured in the brain’s of autistic people. Researchers were also able to identify the mechanism from which aluminum via vaccines is taken from the injection site, and travels to distant organs, eventually ending up in the brain. It doesn’t exit the body like the aluminum we take in from food, for example.
Katie’s father actually raised some concerns about this with the CDC (lack of safety testing for vaccines), and she mentions in the interview how he was able to do so because he wasn’t on the board of autism speaks anymore, and he felt comfortable to bring something like this up.
Does this mean that when controversial claims are made, they’re completely ignored by the influential members of the foundation?
She explains that when her father went to the CDC, he encountered people who didn’t really care about the foundation, or autism at all.
If one were to go through the science, they would find hundreds of examples of what really goes on behind the scenes. More recently, a study published in Clinical Rheumatology exposes how vaccine manufacturers used phoney placebos in clinical trials to conceal a wide range of devastating risks associated with HPV vaccines. Instead of using genuine inert placebos and comparing health impacts over a number of years, as is required for most new drug approvals, Merck and GlaxoSmithKline spiked their placebos with a neurotoxic aluminum adjuvant and cut observation periods to a matter of months. You can access that study and read more about it here.
As far as the CDC goes, the director, Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald had to recently resign because of her supposed connections to big tobacco. In 2016, a group of scientists at the CDC named, SPIDER (Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence and Ethics), put out a list of complaints in the form of a letter to the CDC’s Chief of Staff, where they say, “It appears that our mission is being influenced and shaped by outside parties and rogue interests… and Congressional intent for our agency is being circumvented by some of our leaders. What concerns us most, is that it is becoming the norm and not the rare exception.”
Shortly before this, and perhaps even more shocking is the whistleblower testimony from a senior CDC scientist, who has authored multiple commonly cited studies that show no link whatsoever between the MMR vaccine and autism. In fact, one of his studies, published in 2004, is the most commonly cited study used to debunk the link between the MMR vaccine and autism.
His name is Dr. William Thompson, and he bravely told the world that it was “the lowest point” in his career that he “went along with that paper.” He said that the authors “didn’t report significant findings” and that he is “completely ashamed” of what he did, that he was “complicit and went along with this, and that he regrets that he has “been part of the problem.” (source)(source)(source)
Here is an official statement from Dr. Thompson describing the situation in his own words. This is perhaps the best source of information regrading this matter.
Here is the study now in question, published with the new information.
As you can see, there are clearly multiple concerns to talk about here. The only issue is, there is one side that doesn’t want to talk about it and it appears that this side wants to constantly ridicule and ostracize anybody who even brings this up. Perhaps that’s to avoid a conversation or evidence? This is unethical and the day we stop asking questions is the day we cease to be real scientists. There are so many publications raising concerns about vaccines that it’s overwhelming.
It’s really no surprise to see vaccination rates around the world dropping dramatically.
Katie went on to explain that her father felt the people at the CDC ,”don’t wanna know, they don’t want to know anything, and he knew they could for pennies. He thought they wanted to fix it, and they don’t, they just want to keep going and they know a percentage of children will be predominately damaged and they just don’t care.”
“They were spending a hundred times more money on flu vaccine marketing campaigns than they were for safety testing.”
If you criticize anything about the vaccine schedule, you’re killing children, “children are dying is that what you want?!” You know, that’s what it’s like at the CDC . Anytime Bob (founder of autism speaks and her father) they would be like, “children will die!”
Another interesting point she mentions, is that “so many” of the employees, and many members of the board space out their vaccinations for their own children. What’s even more shocking is the fact that, “some don’t vaccinate at all. I don’t get it.”
Important Questions We Need To Ask Ourselves
One of the most important questions to ask is, in light of all of the evidence and information that’s emerged connecting autism to environmental factors, such as vaccines, mercury toxicity in the environment, prescription drugs and more, why is it still frowned upon to bring these studies up? Why are so many doctors and scientists and figures like, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., spending their time trying to bring awareness to this issue?
PS, if you’re looking for the science, articles have been linked throughout this article, above and below, that go into more detail, so be sure to check them out.
Why are so many parents choosing not to vaccinate their children anymore? Have vaccines really eradicated disease? (An entirely separate discussion as well). Are they really as “life-saving” and “successful” as they’ve been marketed to be?”
There are so many questions and discussions that need to happen, and it’s been long over due for an open and public debate to happen where all of the relevant information is presented.
We must guard against science becoming dogma, because that’s what much of it has become today.
Unfortunately, there are no large-scale studies comparing health outcomes in vaccinated children vs. those who haven’t received vaccines. Total compensation paid to families through the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act/National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is at approximately $4 Billion. The alarming part is that only 1% of vaccine injuries are even reported, and only 1/3 of the petitions are compensated – This means that 99% of vaccine injuries go unreported and the families of the vast majority of people injured by vaccines are paying for it in several different ways.
Vaccine manufacturers cannot be held liable for injuries or deaths that occur from use of their vaccines. The point is, the pharmaceutical industry has no incentive to care about our health when it comes to making our ‘medications’ safe, they don’t have to, there is no punishment for them for not doing so. They can legally be careless with their product and this is evident by the extreme lack of safety testing for multiple “medications,” especially in the realm of vaccines. Throw in all of the fraud, and other shady things that go on in big business and it’s evident we have a problem! Perhaps this is why there hasn’t been one appropriate safety study to justify the use of mercury and aluminum, aborted human fetal cells and more inside of vaccines.
What’s the takeaway here? Always question, do not let the egoic idea of a “educated” person’s instructions guide you, think for yourself and don’t put your complete trust in health professionals because they too are misled by corporations. A lot of ‘education’ is mere brainwashing, and it’s critical to the well being of us, our health, and our planet, that we start taking into consideration factors that, too often, are completely ignored and ridiculed by the mainstream. The evidence speaks for itself.
It’s ok to question long held beliefs that we’ve thought to be true. I’ll leave you with this great quote that really gives one something to think about,
“We knew that the Earth was flat, we knew that we were the center of the universe, and we knew that a man-made heavier than air piece of machinery could not take flight. Through all stages of human history, intellectual authorities have pronounced their supremacy by ridiculing or suppressing elements of reality that simply didn’t fit within the framework of accepted knowledge. Are we really any different today? Have we really changed our acceptance towards things that won’t fit the frame? Maybe there are concepts of our reality we have yet to understand, and if we open our eyes maybe we will see that something significant has been overlooked.” – Terje Toftenes
