Trading places: Former CDC boss joins Big Pharma

Dr. Julie Gerberding, former head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has landed a sweet job in the lap of Big Pharma luxury. She’s gone from making public health decisions on meds from companies like Merck… to running a key Merck division.

We all think about the future from time to time. I wonder what was running through Dr. Gerberding’s mind during her seven years in charge of the CDC… and if it ever had an impact on the decisions she made there. After all, as head of the CDC, Dr. Gerberding was a tireless advocate. Just not for you. She put much of her time and energy into promoting Big Pharma vaccines, including Gardasil – Merck’s dangerous HPV vaccine (I hate calling it that – because it actually offers only limited protection from some strains of the virus).

In fact, under her watch, the CDC began aggressively pushing Gardasil on young girls. Someone at Merck must have noticed… because in her new role, she’ll oversee the company’s $5 billion-per-year vaccine business. That includes Gardasil, flu shots, chicken pox vaccines and more.

Germans Needing Asylum in America

That may seem strange to the ears, because none of us would think that anyone would need to “flee” from Germany. But the Romeike family did—because they really had no other choice.

*ALERT* - Electronic Medical Records for WI

We just learned hours ago that there will be a public hearing on SB579 which would implement an electronic medical records system in the state of Wisconsin. As of right now the bill is not even electronically available for the public to review!

You may have heard about the BILLIONS in federal dollars that were set aside last Feb in the “stimulus” bill that was passed last February. This will be the beginning of rationing health care in this state.

To learn more please read the following articles:

Downgrading American Medical Care

This is the description from the author of the bill:
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) includes $34 billion in incentive payments for private health care providers to purchase and implement electronic medical record systems. We estimate that health care providers in Wisconsin will be eligible for between $500 and $800 million in incentive payments for establishing electronic medical record systems. In order to capitalize on the funding available Wisconsin must first have a statewide health information exchange infrastructure that allows health care providers to share electronic patient data with each other, while protecting patient confidentiality, privacy, and security of the information. This legislation will create a private-public structure to implement and oversee the state-level health information exchange as a means of driving improved healthcare quality and efficiency. This organization will work in concert with existing health care providers but will not impose mandates or overrule their existing processes. The health information exchange refers to the process of electronic sharing of health-related information conducted in a manner that protects the confidentiality, privacy, and security of the information. An HIE can improve health care coordination through the use of electronic health records (EHRs), provide key information to individuals to promote their health and wellness, and support research, public health, emergency response, and quality improvement. The federal funding that will come with the creation of the statewide HIE will benefit not only private sector health care providers in our state but Wisconsin based information technology vendors who serve hospitals and clinics across the nation.

Abstinence and The Left

Alarmed by a recent well-publicized study showing that abstinence education succeeded while “safe sex” and “comprehensive” sex-ed programs failed, the Left has abandoned its “abstinence doesn’t work” claim and drawn up a new line of defense.

FOX NEWS: Planned Parenthood Pushes Intensive Sex Education for Kids as Young as 10

A new report by the International Planned Parenthood Federation is advocating that children as young as 10 be given extensive sex education, including an awareness of sex's pleasures.
Michelle Turner, president of the Maryland-based Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum, said Planned Parenthood was simply trying to eliminate parental say. "What are they trying to do? They are trying to eliminate the role of mom and dad in the family," Turner said. "For Planned Parenthood to decide that governments, private organizations and religious organizations should make decisions about kids' sexuality is just going too far." "It is part of a bigger push to change the way we think about sex," she said. That sex is all about pleasure and there are no consequences. They are wrong. No matter how much we teach children, some will make mistakes. They will forget. And Planned Parenthood doesn't want to deal with that," she said. "They see religious groups, especially those that counsel abstinence and waiting until marriage, as bad guys," she added. "We aren't."

Report: TAXES Prop Up 'Dying' Abortion Industry

A new report asserts the U.S. abortion industry is in significant decline, held together largely through the $300 million-plus that federal taxpayers deliver annually to its major player, Planned Parenthood. "It is very clear that the only abortion group expanding its business is Planned Parenthood, and the only reason it can do so is with the help of our tax dollars," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
