Vaccines Cause Autism
Jenny McCarthy led the crusade, claiming that vaccines caused her son's autism. So far, two families have been awarded millions of dollars by the government's Vaccine Injury Compensation program for their children, who have autism. It is unknown if the defendant, the Department of Health and Human Services, admitted to the families that autism was caused by vaccines, as the settlement is sealed. Parents who claim that vaccines caused autism attest that their children were developing normally until receiving vaccines, and then began to suffer from fevers, seizures, and other ailments.
