- Gillette--The greatest lie ever told
is that vaccines are safe and effective, according to author Dr. Len Horowitz.
- That was the message more than 50 people
heard Saturday during Horowitz's presentation at the Campbell County Public
- In his presentation, titled "Emerging
Viruses and Vaccinations: Are The New Auto-Immune Diseases Putting You
and Your Family At Risk?", Horowitz accused the federal government
of spreading epidemics, including AIDS, through experimental and sometimes
- "This is a genocidal agenda,"
Horowitz said of the Hepatitis-B and other vaccination programs.
- Six children from the nearby town of
Hulett are being home-schooled as a result of their parents' refusal to
have them inoculated with the Hepatitis-B vaccine, according to Jonathan
Saturen, publisher of the Crook County Sentinel and one of the parents
who is boycotting the shots.
- "He is validating our boycott. We
want more people informed on this," Saturen said.
- Horowitz, who holds a doctorate in dentistry
and has training in internal medicine, began researching virus/vaccine-related
health issues in 1990.
- He began the slide show and lecture by
referring to prophesies in the Bible, which he said foretold of a time
when plagues will cover the world.
- That time has come, he said, and "It's
time for the truth to be revealed."
- He then referred his listeners to government
documents, reprinted in his book, "Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola--Nature,
Accident, or Intentional?" that, he said, link several different epidemics
in the United States and the world to military and civilian cancer and
virus research directives-- begun as early as 1962.
- He blamed these alleged man-made viruses,
and the professional health-care community's lack of knowledge about them,
on pharmaceutical companies, the government, the military and other world
- One research, Dr. Maurice Hilleman --
the 1997 recipient of the Sabin Gold Medal of Honor Award by President
Clinton -- admitted on tape, according to Horowitz, that the AIDS virus
was brought to North America in contaminated monkeys to be used in viral
- Vaccines produced from those studies
most plausibly initiated the AIDS epidemic in New York City's homosexual
males, Horowitz added.
- To further substantiate those claims,
Horowitz turned again to government documents that he said proved the U.S.
military administered an experimental AIDS vaccine to soldiers without
their knowledge or consent in 1989-90.
- Impurities in the vaccine caused what
has become known as "The Gulf War Syndrome," he said.
- In the second half of his presentation,
Horowitz answered audience questions -- including how parents can remain
exempt from so-called "mandatory" vaccinations.
- The Bible, he said, includes passages
that tell its readers not to contaminate the blood or mix the seed.
- So, when asked by health-care providers
"if your children have been vaccinated?," he said "tell
them, thanks, they're all taken care of in that regard.
- "If that doesn't work, you can lie.
Or, do what I do, (and use) spiritual or religious exemption," he
- In reaction to the state Department of
Health's mandatory Hepatitis-B vaccinations, state Sen. Bill Barton, R-Upton,
has introduced legislation that will allow parents to choose whether they
want their children to receive the shots.
- "I'm convinced that there should
be a philosophical objection to these mandatory vaccinations," Barton
- Saturen added, "We're just trying
to save kids from needless misery."

- Wyoming Governor Faces Anti-Vaccine Activists:
Health Lawmakers Charged with Civil Rights Violations
- GILLETTE, WY - The 1998 Wyoming gubernatorial
race is heating up, as is the central political issue-citizens' rights
to choose their health practices and practitioners. In recent weeks, a
rapidly growing grassroots movement has captured bipartisan attention,
and pressured legislators around the state, including Governor Geringer,
and Democratic challenger John Vinich, to answer the peoples' demands for
religious and philosophical vaccine exemptions; without persecution and
threatened access to schools and workplaces. Also, restricted access to
doctors whose treatments go beyond the traditional, even when traditional
medicine has failed, is "deplorable" according to political activists
leading the charge. Local groups, working with two national consumer advocacy
organizations, have scheduled an upcoming "Town Hall Meeting"
in Casper to discuss and debate the issues.
- Overwhelming evidence has shown that
vaccine programs have spread epidemics such as AIDS and Gulf War Syndrome,
said Dr. Leonard Horowitz- a central figure in the vaccine debate, and
the National Health Federation's legislative committee chairperson-at a
meeting held last weekend in Gillette.
- Wyoming's Governor, meanwhile, has stood
firmly by public health officials as they continue to force people against
their wills and religious beliefs to get vaccinated. Even as hundreds of
thousands have died from vaccine induced injuries in recent years, vaccine
advocates, like state epidemiologist Dr. Gayle Miller, continue to claim
the potential injury rate is "very, very, very, very very, small."
- "Public health 'authorities' have
nothing to back up their vaccine safety claims. They still haven't done
the research showing they're not killing and maiming more people than they
are helping and saving with all the 'required' vaccines," Dr. Horowitz
asserted. Countless vaccine injury related maladies such as autism, sudden
infant death (SIDS), multiple sclerosis (MS), cancers and even cases of
immune system related diabetes kill or maim hundreds of thousands of people
annually in the United States alone. Vaccine advocates never stop to realize
that these maladies are coming from the very vaccines they claim are beneficial.
- "The central issue continues to
be the right to choose vaccines or not," said Jonathan Saturen, publisher
of the Crook County Sentinel, and one of many parents forced to remove
a child from school rather than submit to the hepatitis B vaccine program.
- Also, citizens' rights to access alternative
heathcare providers, and vitally important nutritional supplements, are
being eliminated at the same time risky vaccines are given, consumer advocates
object. "Drs. Painter and Johnson are the latest victims being persecuted
for their beliefs and use of simple detoxification therapies," Mr.
- In response to these issues, State Senator
Bill Barton and Representative Carolyn Pasenquix are presently working
on vaccine legislation to return the philosophical exemption right to state
citizens. They also say they intend to limit, what citizens' groups say
is "misplaced 'public health' authority." The legislators have
been particularly concerned about recent vaccine-related news stories.
Last week, France suspended mandatory hepatitis B vaccines as authorities
learned they may be a primary cause of multiple sclerosis. The week before,
the U.S. Army changed its forced anthrax vaccine policy allowing for religious
and medical exemptions.
- In spite of these headlines, Mr. Saturen
added, "Governor Geringer and the Wyoming Medical Board continue to
disregard facts, violate civil rights, and victimize innocent doctors and
- On Monday night, October 26, 1998, a
pre-election "Town Hall Meeting" will be held in Casper at the
Parkway Plaza from 7 to 10PM. Confirmed guests include Dr. Horowitz who,
earlier this year, debated top CDC and FDA vaccine officials. He has offered
to openly discuss and debate these critical issues with the Governor and
state public health officials at this special meeting sponsored by the
National Health Federation, the National Health Education and Political
Action Initiative, and several Wyoming businesses and citizens. For more

- Health Officials: Vaccinations Save Lives
- By Bill Luckett Star-Tribune staff writer
- CASPER -- Two Wyoming health officials
said Monday that, despite one author's assertions, vaccinations save lives
and do a great deal more good than harm to public health.
- Dr. Gayle Miller, the state epidemiologist,
and Natrona County Disease Prevention Clinic Director Tia Hansuld said
vaccines have nearly eradicated diseases such as polio and have a direct
impact on preventing outbreaks of other diseases.
- "Anyone who says that vaccines do
not have impact obviously does not understand the issue, or they have an
agenda of their own," Miller said. "How can they possibly explain
the fact that people in the field . . . are vaccinating their own kids?
Do they honestly believe that every physician in the country hates their
children and they're going to do them harm?"
- Miller and Hansuld discussed the benefits
of vaccinations two days after about 50 people attended a speech in Gillette
by the author of a book that claims the government is spreading disease
through vaccine programs.
- Len Horowitz accused the federal government
of having a "genocidal agenda" and urged people to boycott immunization
- Contrary to Horowitz' assertions, vaccinations
have been proven to save lives and prevent diseases, according to Miller
- "I think they (children) should
be vaccinated," Hansuld said. "We're kind of living in an age
where we've forgotten what these diseases do to people."
- Miller, who recently visited India, said
she witnessed first hand what diseases do to people in countries that do
not have effective vaccination programs like exist in the United States.
- "In India, you routinely see polio
everywhere, or evidence of its effects," Miller said. "You don't
see that in the U.S."
- She said she is concerned that people
might take Horowitz seriously and refuse to let their children receive
vaccinations, as parents of six children in Hulett have done.
- In his speech, Horowitz asserted that
vaccines are not safe and effective, but Hansuld said they are tremendously
safe and effective but not perfect.
- "No vaccine is 100 percent safe
and effective," she said. But she described the potential of a vaccine
harming someone as "very, very, very, very, very small" compared
to their potential for doing good.
- "Two or three kids across the world
have a serious reaction to a vaccine," Hansuld said.
- She said some people may experience minor,
harmless reactions such as redness or swelling on their bodies where they
received the shot.
- Other people may have allergies to certain
vaccines, she said, but those people are screened prior to receiving the
- Miller said people who don't let their
children receive vaccinations may be risking the lives of not only their
children but the neighbors' children, too.
- Letter to the editor of the Casper Star-Tribune
- October 8, 1998
- The Editor The Star-Tribune e-mail email@example.com
- Dear Editor,
- I would like to respond to your article
"Health officials: Vaccinations save lives" (Wed. Oct. 7) wherein
public health officials, Dr. Gayle Miller, and Nurse Tia Hansuld, slandered
me and deceived the public.
- I find it interesting that, according
to this article, my official title is limited to "author". In
fact, between 1990 and 1993 I trained doctors and nurses, including public
health professionals like Dr. Miller and Ms. Hansuld, on OSHA regulations,
including the benefits of vaccinations. My doctorate in medical dentistry
from Tufts University and my Master of Public Health degree from Harvard
University was omitted.
- Dr. Miller is quoted as saying, "Anyone
who says that vaccines do not have an impact obviously does not understand
the issues, or they have an agenda of their own." My "agenda"
is to tell the truth. Like the fact that, according to Centers for Disease
Control (CDC) statistics, as many as 800,000 vaccine induced injuries have
occurred every year in the United States since 1990.
- Thus, vaccines obviously have a negative
impact far beyond Ms. Hansuld's statement that "Two or three kids
across the world have a serious reaction to a vaccine."
- Miller and Hansuld also falsely claim
that vaccines are good for the public's health.
- That is precisely what physicians learned
and shared with their patients years ago regarding cigarette smoking.
- Since the 1920s, virtually all continuing
medical and public health education is funded by pharmaceutical companies.
In fact, today, the FDA can't even tell health scientists the truth about
vaccine contaminants and their likely effects. The agency is bound and
gagged by proprietary laws and non-disclosure agreements forced upon them
by the pharmaceutical industry. Let us not forget that the pharmaceutical
industry, as a special interest group, is the number one contributor to
politicians on Capitol Hill--where I spent last Monday educating legislators
regarding these issues.
- Ms. Hansuld said the likelihood of vaccine
injury is "very, very, very, very, very small" compared to their
potential for doing good.
- Hogwash. Ask her to produce the supportive
evidence. She won't be able to because CDC and FDA officials can't produce
it either. My two previous meetings with top vaccine officials, from these
agencies, proved that definitive risk/benefit analyses are lacking. In
essence, vaccines may be killing and maiming far more people than they
are helping and saving.
- Miller and Hansuld alleged that vaccinations
have been proven to save lives and prevent diseases. Again they lack definitive
evidence to back up this claim. What they are referring to are limited
studies, conducted by heavily-funded (paid off and biased) investigators,
and limited cost/benefit analyses. Such "scientific" studies,
for instance, claim that for thirty cents invested on a shot, the government
might save as much as $1.50 in health care costs. Closer scrutiny of the
methods used to develop this conclusion shows not all the costs are considered.
- Nurse Hansuld claimed, "We're kind
of living in an age where we've forgotten what these [infectious] diseases
do to people [who are not vaccinated.]" What about the new autoimmune,
neurological, and cancer epidemics, ravaging our family, friends and children
today, Ms. Hansuld? Perhaps she hasn't read of the scientific articles
linking vaccinations and illnesses including: multiple sclerosis (MS),
Guillean Barré, fibromyalgia, lupus, ALS, type 1 diabetes in juveniles
and adults, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), meningitis, rheumatoid
arthritis, asthma, allergies, AIDS, autism, attention deficit and hyperactivity
disorders, Gulf War Syndrome, and a variety of cancers including lymphomas,
sarcomas, and leukemias.
- Furthermore, if vaccines are so effective,
why would Dr. Miller caution that "people who don't let their children
receive vaccinations may be risking the lives of not only their children,
but their neighbors' children, too?" The fact is, that if vaccines,
given en masse as they are, worked as well as Miller claims, then your
neighbors' children shouldn't have to worry, now should they?
- Indeed, fear is a wonderful manipulative
tool too often abused by "public health officials." Another reason
for citizens to demand, and law makers to pass, philosophical and religious
vaccine exemption legislation, to prevent threatened access to schools
and workplaces, loss of jobs, or other persecution for refusing vaccines.
- Finally, my statement that vaccinations
"are not a public health agenda, they are a genocidal agenda"
should not be taken out of context. Otherwise my message might be marginalized
to what public health officials like to believe is a "foolish conspiracy
theory." Recently deceased (on Flight 111) Dr. Jonathan Mann left
his World Health Organization post, as AIDS czar, in protest. Like me,
he argued that far more than a medical/scientific issue, AIDS is a socio-political
problem. Dr. Mann, a fellow Harvard faculty member, was well aware of my
- Genocide is defined in Webster's as "the
deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural
group." Today, in America, 75 percent of AIDS cases are Black and
Hispanic. AIDS I prove in my book, "Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola"
most plausibly evolved out of the Merck pharmaceutical company's hepatitis
B vaccine trials on gay men in New York City and Blacks in Central Africa.
Today, the largest vaccine maker, Merck--a company with direct financial
and administrative ties to Hitler's Third Reich and America's biological
weapons industry--is also a leading proponent and principle funding source
for world population reduction.
- Conflicts of interest aside, Merck's
top vaccine developer, Dr. Maurice Hilleman's tape recorded admission of
having brought the AIDS virus to North America in monkeys destined for
vaccine research and development at Merck, should be investigated by scientists,
citizens, and legislators alike.
- I look forward to discussing these issues
further with Wyoming's citizens, legislators, and public health officials
at the upcoming Town Hall Meeting in Casper on Monday night, Oct. 26 from
7-10PM at the Parkway Plaza.
- Sincerely yours,
- Leonard G. Horowitz, D.M.D, M.A., M.P.H.
