There Is No Freedom Without Health Freedom


In order to accomplish full funding of the site, we've started charging the very small access fee of $10.00/year.  With a subscription you will be able to see many more links as well as the rest of the site. Of course, donations will always be welcome and will help meet the very important goal of covering my costs.

I’m sorry that it has to be this way, but I can no longer afford the considerable expense required to maintain the only vaccination news and information website that provides “all sides” in one very convenient,  time-saving place.  

All the best,
