Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Barack Obama were SO busy, they SKIPPED the NYC Veteran's Day Parade

WHY IS PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP THE FIRST SITTING PRESIDENT TO ATTEND THE NEW YORK CITY VETERAN'S DAY PARADE OVER THE PAST 100 YEARS??? 🤔 Remember, the Democrats and their PROSTITUTE mainstream media tell us that President Donald J Trump is an ILLEGITIMATE President, a CRIMINAL, and that he is DESTROYING our nation. REALLY? This man and his EXCELLENT policies has brought this nation back from the brink of DISASTER! 🤨 EVERYTHING that the Democrat Party and their LACKEY mainstream media says is TRASH! President Trump is breaking EVERY record known to man. Why do you reckon that the organizers of the NYC Veteran's Day Parade have invited ALL of the sitting Presidents to attend over the past 25 years, and they ALL have refused? Is this what we expect of our nation's leaders, to NOT care to participate in a celebration of our nation's WAR HEROES? What excuse can President Trump's predecessors have for this? Were they too busy? Were they incapacitated? Or did they just NOT GIVE A SHIT? But remember, President Donald J Trump is an ILLEGITIMATE President.....🙄 Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Barack Obama ALL served EIGHT years in the Presidency. You're telling me now, that these men could not attend this Veteran's Day Parade ONCE in their EIGHT years??? DISGRACEFUL!!!! 😤



Virginia: Muslim migrant doctor tied women’s tubes, performed hysterectomies without their consent

SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Maybe Dr. Javaid Perwaiz is a cynical profiteer, and that’s all there is to this. However, we have seen Muslim doctors do this elsewhere. It may be relevant in this context that Islam forbids Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men, but Muslim men may marry Jewish or Christian women (or women from the other “People of the Book”). The upshot of that is that the Muslim community will perpetually be growing and the non-Muslim community declining.
Also, Houari Boumedienne, President of Algeria, said this at the UN in 1974: “One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”
And Iranian army representative Abbas Mohammad Hassani said recently: “Childbearing in the current circumstances is considered a type of jihad and it would please the Almighty God. Enemies of Shiism are trying to prevent the Shiite population from growing, while they continue to increase their own population. All Shiites must, therefore, take on the jihad of childbearing to counter the goals and conspiracies of the enemies.”
Is it possible that Javaid Perwaiz has the same kind of mindset, believing that he is performing an Islamic duty by preventing Infidel women from having children? It cannot be discounted, but of course the possibility will never be investigated; to do so would be “Islamophobic.”
“Chesapeake doctor tied women’s tubes, performed hysterectomies without their consent, feds say,” by Scott Daugherty, The Virginian-Pilot, November 8, 2019 (thanks to T.):
She wanted to have a child, but for years had trouble conceiving.
It wasn’t until the woman sought the help of a fertility specialist that she learned the reason: Her doctor had tied her tubes without her knowledge or consent, according to federal prosecutors.
The woman’s Fallopian tubes had been burned down to nubs, making it impossible to conceive naturally.
Javaid Perwaiz, 69, of Chesapeake, was arrested Friday on one count each of health care fraud and making false statements relating to health care matters. He later made an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Norfolk while still wearing his green scrubs.
A federal magistrate ordered Perwaiz held without bond until at least next Thursday, when a detention hearing was scheduled. He noted prosecutors were concerned he might run….
Perwaiz has had a medical license since at least 1980, according to state records, having attended medical school in his native Pakistan and completed a residency at Charleston Area Medical Center.
He currently has two offices in Chesapeake, one on Churchland Boulevard and one on Wimbledon Square, and is affiliated with Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center and Chesapeake Regional Medical Center….
The FBI started investigating Perwaiz in September 2018, after receiving a tip from a hospital employee who suspected he was performing unnecessary surgeries on unsuspecting patients. The employee told investigators Perwaiz’s patients advised hospital staff they were there for their “annual clean outs,” according to an affidavit signed by FBI Special Agent Desiree Maxwell.
In many instances, the patients were not aware of the procedures they were undergoing. He was performing so many procedures, hospital staff also had a difficult time keeping up, the affidavit said.
The affidavit referenced a variety of medical procedures, including, hysterectomies, cystectomies, myomectomies, tubal ligation and dilation & curettage.
A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus, a cystectomy is the removal of a cyst and a myomectomy is a removal of a uterine fibroid. Tubal ligation is a form of permanent birth control. A D&C is a procedure where a thin instrument is inserted into the uterus to remove tissue.
According to the affidavit, Perwaiz repeatedly subjected Medicaid patients to procedures, sometimes on an annual basis. From January 2014 to August 2018, he performed a surgical procedure on 40 percent of his Medicaid patients — 510 in all. Of those, 42 percent underwent two or more surgeries….
Perwaiz performed annual D&C surgeries on one of the patients based on a self-diagnosis she had endometriosis, the affidavit said. On at least one occasion, he scheduled her for a procedure without seeing her for an office visit.
The woman learned in 2014 Perwaiz had removed her Fallopian tubes without her consent or knowledge, the affidavit said….
 UK: Muslim rape gang faces 36 counts of rape and forcing children into sexual activity
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Why does this keep happening? Because British authorities for years were too terrified of being called “Islamophobic” to do anything about it. And while sexual assault occurs in all cultures, only in Islam does it have divine sanction.
One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam.
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.
“Five in court in Nottingham facing 36 child grooming charges,” BBC, November 7, 2019 (thanks to Paul):
Five men have appeared in court to face 36 charges of child grooming.
Hamza Shazad, 25, Ansar Ahmed, 29, Mohammed Saeed Ahmed, 20, Waqar Akhtar, 26 and Waqas Akhtar, 24, were granted conditional bail at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court.
The court heard the charges related to three girls, two aged under 16 and one aged under 18.
The men were told the next hearing will take place at Nottingham Crown Court on 5 December.
    • Mr Shazad, of Ewart Road, Forest Fields, Nottingham, faces 11 charges, including two counts of inciting a girl to engage in sexual activity and one count of possessing an extreme pornographic image portraying a sex act with an animal
    • Ansar Ahmed, of Radford Road, Nottingham, faces six charges including one count of meeting a girl under 16 following grooming and causing a girl to engage in sexual activity
    • Mohammed Saeed Ahmed, of Vale Crescent South, Nottingham, faces 11 charges including one count of raping a girl
    • Waqar Akhtar, of Glentworth Road, Nottingham, faces two charges: one of taking away a child in care and one of removing a child under 16 from a person who had lawful responsibility for them
    • Waqas Akhtar, of no fixed abode, faces six charges including two of engaging in sexual activity with a girl…

Toronto: Muslim charged with 54 sexual assault-related offenses, including many with children

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam.
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30).

In this case, many of the victims were children. This may have been because Mohammed Naufal Hadi Mohamed’s reverence for Muhammad led him to think of children as sexual objects. Islamic apologists in the West routinely deny that Muhammad consummated his marriage with (i.e., raped) Aisha when she was nine, and go through all sorts of contortions to deny the evidence of the texts, but the fact that child marriage is accepted in wide swaths of the Islamic world, even by the directorate of religious affairs in once-“moderate” albeit now rapidly re-Islamizing Turkey, most clearly shows their dishonesty. The Diyanet wouldn’t approve of child marriage if it weren’t Islamic, as it explains in its own defense. And child marriage has abundant attestation in Islamic tradition and law.
“Islam has no age barrier in marriage and Muslims have no apology for those who refuse to accept this” — Ishaq Akintola, professor of Islamic Eschatology and Director of Muslim Rights Concern, Nigeria
“There is no minimum marriage age for either men or women in Islamic law. The law in many countries permits girls to marry only from the age of 18. This is arbitrary legislation, not Islamic law.” — Dr. Abd Al-Hamid Al-‘Ubeidi, Iraqi expert on Islamic law
There is no minimum age for marriage and that girls can be married “even if they are in the cradle.” — Dr. Salih bin Fawzan, prominent cleric and member of Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council
“Islam does not forbid marriage of young children.” — Pakistan’s Council of Islamic Ideology
Hadiths that Muslims consider authentic record that Muhammad’s favorite wife, Aisha, was six when Muhammad wedded her and nine when he consummated the marriage:
“The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death)” (Bukhari 7.62.88).
Another tradition has Aisha herself recount the scene:
The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became all right, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, “Best wishes and Allah’s Blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age. (Bukhari 5.58.234).
Muhammad was at this time fifty-four years old.
Marrying young girls was not all that unusual for its time, but because in Islam Muhammad is the supreme example of conduct (cf. Qur’an 33:21), he is considered exemplary in this unto today. And so in April 2011, the Bangladesh Mufti Fazlul Haque Amini declared that those trying to pass a law banning child marriage in that country were putting Muhammad in a bad light: “Banning child marriage will cause challenging the marriage of the holy prophet of Islam, [putting] the moral character of the prophet into controversy and challenge.” He added a threat: “Islam permits child marriage and it will not be tolerated if any ruler will ever try to touch this issue in the name of giving more rights to women.” The Mufti said that 200,000 jihadists were ready to sacrifice their lives for any law restricting child marriage.
These kinds of incidents are where such thinking leads.

Islamic State encourages Muslims to set forest fires in US and Europe in “new way of waging jihad”

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Islamic State media is “encouraging ISIS followers to start wildfires in the U.S. and Europe as a new way of ‘waging jihad.’” Except that it really isn’t new. Three years ago in Israel, 13 Muslims were arrested for arson jihad as fires still raged through the northern port city of Haifa in “acts of terrorism.” And more recently, the Palestinians in Gaza have sent kites fitted out with incendiary devices across the border into Israel and have set fire to thousands of acres of cropland.
The Islamic State is seeking revenge since the death of its caliph Al Baghdadi, and finding creative ways to kill and destroy is all a part of the jihad. Attempt to cast terror into the hearts of disbelievers can come in any form.
“Islamic State Media Encourages Jihadis to Set Forest Fires in U.S. and Europe”, by John Hayward, Breitbart, November 8, 2019:
Quraysh Media, a media organization that supports the Islamic State, is encouraging ISIS followers to start wildfires in the U.S. and Europe as a new way of “waging jihad.”
The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) spotted four posters distributed by Quraysh Media since April containing the (literally) incendiary message to Islamic State devotees, or “monotheists” as Quraysh Media prefers to call them.
Two of the posters included images of American firefighters battling wildfires.
“Ignite fires in the forests of America, France, Britain and Germany, for they are painful to them,” instructed the fourth poster, which was released on Monday.
Various Western media outlets speculated the Islamic State was inspired by the rash of wildfires in California, although there seems to be no clear evidence of this. ISIS has been known to celebrate American deaths in previous wildfires, and has taken credit for setting crop fires in Syria and Iraq.
Quraysh Media is one of the more prominent Islamic State mouthpieces to question whether ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was truly killed by U.S. special forces in a late October raid. Quraysh generally refers to Baghdadi as if he were still alive.
In addition to touching base with its overseas supporters, the Islamic State has been busy convincing affiliated terrorist gangs to renew their oaths of fealty to the new ISIS leader, who works under the alias “Abu Ibrahim al-Hashini al-Qurashi.” His pseudonym, and the name of Quraysh Media, both refer to the tribe Islam’s prophet Mohammed came from….

US offers $4 million reward for jihadi whom Obama freed from Guantanamo

The immortal legacy of our sainted former President.
“U.S. Offers Up to $4 Million for Location of Freed Guantánamo Convict,” by Carol Rosenberg, New York Times, November 7, 2019 (thanks to the Geller Report):
GUANTÁNAMO BAY, Cuba — The United States government on Thursday offered a $4 million reward for information on the whereabouts of a Sudanese man who was convicted of war crimes at Guantánamo, was repatriated in 2012 and is suspected of recruiting for Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen.
It is believed to be the first case of the United States offering a reward for the whereabouts of a prisoner released from Guantánamo by the Obama administration.
In 2014, the United States similarly offered a reward for a Saudi man who had been held at Guantánamo but never charged and was released by the Bush administration in 2006. He was killed in a drone strike in 2015. The State Department declined on Thursday to say whether any money was paid.
The announcement by the State Department of the new bounty on Thursday offered up to $4 million for information on the location of the Sudanese man, Ibrahim al-Qosi, 59. He pleaded guilty at Guantánamo in 2010 to providing support for terrorism and Al Qaeda in exchange for his repatriation. The reward announcement described Mr. al-Qosi as a member of the leadership team of the Yemen-based Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.them were released by the Obama administration….

Machete-wielding Migrants Hack Up German Disco

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
A group of approximately 10 migrant men from Syria and Afghanistan attacked the Kulti disco in the Village of Trebbin in Brandenburg, Germany, on Saturday night. After two of the men were turned away at the door, the group later returned with machetes and attempted to cut a bouncer’s neck.
Luckily for the bouncer at the door — identified only as Tom — he was able to fend off the attack to his neck with his arm and move back inside the facility. He and three colleagues then held the door shut while the migrant assailants hacked away at the wooden door with machetes.
Two members of the group had been denied entry to the disco because of unruly behavior in the past — not because they were migrants. They later returned with more people and weapons.
“Two of them had been banned two weeks ago because they had climbed over the fence,” said Frank Siefert, who runs Kulti. “We have nothing against asylum seekers. But whoever does not behave cannot go in anymore.”
Tom, the bouncer, recounted the incident: “I fended off the blow with my forearm and pushed him back. He fell against the other two. We used the seconds to retreat and shut the door. Then they hacked on the door. They had, apparently, planned to take revenge, otherwise they would not have brought the weapons.”
One injury was reported. As the migrant men chopped at the door, a splinter of wood flew into the eye of a guest. The guest was taken to the emergency room and treated.
The club reportedly attracts many young revelers because it offers low-priced drinks. It is also located only 20 minutes southwest of Berlin, Germany’s largest city.
In Europe, the migrant violence has changed social behavior, with many European women nowafraid to go out by themselves or in small groups. When they do go out, they often form “defensive circles” inside clubs to avoid being harassed.
The incident in Trebbin is far from the only instance of migrants misbehaving in Germany. In 2017, in the nearby State of Saxony, a disco banned all asylum seekers from entering due to repeated violence, thefts, and the sexual harassment of young women.
In 2016, a Syrian refugee murdered a pregnant woman and injured two more in a machete attack near Stuttgart. The refugee had, reportedly, fallen in love with the victim.
Twenty-two-year-old Ali Bashar, a Syrian refugee who came to Germany with his family in 2015, was sentenced to prison in July for the rape and murder of 14-year-old Susanna Feldman near the City of Mainz. Bashar is also being investigated for the rape of an 11-year-old girl.
On New Year’s Eve 2015 in Cologne, approximately 2,000 migrant males went out in gangs, assaulting, raping, and otherwise sexually molesting approximately 1,200 German women.
These and hundreds more attacks have occurred in Germany and all over Europe since the 2015 “migrant crisis” began in Europe.
Germany can thank Chancellor Angela Merkel for these violent acts. Her 2015 decision to basically open up the gates of the country for hundreds of thousands of migrants fleeing Syria, Afghanistan, and other Middle Eastern countries created chaos in her country and much of Europe.
Machete violence has spilled over into other European countries as well. Just this August in London, a 28-year-old police officer was nearly slashed to death by a machete-wielding motorist, Muhammad Rodwan. The officer was stabbed numerous times and nearly had his thumb cut off by Rodwan.
In case you think these are isolated incidents, consider that the German women’s magazine Illu der Frau recently published an article on how to treat stab wounds in its “health and fitness” section. The Daily Mail reports that a machete attack occurs once every 90 minutes in the UK.
The millions of migrants who have streamed into Europe in the past several years have brought great changes to European society, almost none of them good. Not only does this new type of immigrant not assimilate to their new culture, they bring their old ways of dealing with women and settling scores with them.

What could possibly go wrong? CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused todenounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements about how Islamic law should be imposed in the U.S. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) CAIR chapters frequently distribute pamphlets telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. CAIR’s Hussam Ayloush in 2017 called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. CAIR’s national outreach manager is an open supporter of Hamas.
“Trump Administration Approves HAMAS-linked CAIR to Train U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Officers,” Center for Security Policy, November 8, 2019:
Three weeks after Oussama Jamaal, the Secretary General of the USCMO (US Council of Muslim Organizations, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s political umbrella group), penetrated the White House on 25 September 2019 to attend a symposium led by Vice President Mike Pence, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) allowed Sufyan Sohel, the Deputy Director of CAIR-Chicago, to facilitate a discussion and training session for U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers at their offices near O’Hare International Airport on 15 October 2019.
CAIR is the U.S. branch of HAMAS (a designated group on the Foreign Terrorist Organizations list), itself the Palestinian branch of the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood. CAIR was named by the Department of Justice (DOJ) as an unindicted co-conspiratorin the 2008 Holy Land Foundation (HLF) HAMAS terror funding trial. In 2009, following the 108-count unanimous guilty verdict in the HLF trial, the FBI announced that it was cutting all ties with CAIR. Unfortunately, neither the DOJ at the supervisory level nor the FBI’s field office in St. Cloud, MN would seem to have gotten the memo. A “hate crimes” event there, originally scheduled for 18 September 2019, eventually was cancelled following protests by local activists, but not before the announcement went out that the FBI would be teaming up with CAIR-MN for the forum…ten years after it was supposed to have cut all ties.
While CAIR presents itself as a civil rights organization, individuals closely associated with it sport a long and well-documented history of engaging in subversive and seditious lines of effort against the USG as reported by the Center for Security Policy (CSP) in its 2015 publication Star Spangled Shariah: The Rise of America’s First Muslim Brotherhood Party. Another red flag for the Trump administration should be the close relationship between Nihad Awad’s CAIR and the pro-HAMAS and openly jihadist Turkish government and Justice and Development Party (AKP) of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, which are successfully running foreign hostile influence operations against the USG—on U.S. soil. (See the Diyanet Center of America at as well as Chapter 2 of CSP’s 2018 monograph, “Ally No More: Erdogan’s New Turkish Caliphate and the Rising Jihadist Threat to the West” for details.)
If the Federal Bureau of Investigation supposedly suspended all formal contacts with CAIR in 2009 due to substantial evidence demonstrating a nexus between CAIR and HAMAS, a U.S. Department of State designated Foreign Terrorist Organization, then why is the Trump administration selecting CAIR to train U.S. CBP officers in October 2019?…


Children Taken From Parents Who Refuse Vitamin K Shot
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Since 1961, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has recommended that all newborns receive a vitamin K1 injection to prevent uncontrolled bleeding caused by vitamin K deficiency.1 2
Vitamin K1 is required for proper blood clotting, and newborns tend to have low levels due to the fact that vitamin K doesn’t cross the placenta very well. Deficiency can result in sudden internal bleeding—typically in the brain or intestines. This is referred to as “vitamin K deficiency bleeding” or VKDB, and can be life-threatening.
Research published in 20143 4 in the journal Pediatrics found the number of parents declining the vitamin K shot for their newborn babies was on the rise, increasing from 0.21 percent in 2006 to 0.39 percent in 2012.5
The data were based on infants born in Alberta, Canada. In the U.S., data6 presented at the 2014 CSTE conference reported the refusal rate at two Nashville, Tennessee, hospitals ranged from 2.3 percent to 3.7 percent in 2013.
A second 2014 study7 also concluded vitamin K refusal was on the rise, and with it, an increase in late onset vitamin K deficiency bleeding in infants. Of seven infants with confirmed vitamin K deficiency, five developed vitamin K deficiency bleeding.
A 2017 poll8 found the most common reasons given by parents for refusing the vitamin K shot were “perceptions of parents that the injection was unnecessary, lack of knowledge about vitamin K deficiency bleeding, and concern about preservatives.”

Vitamin K Refusal Linked to Vaccine Avoidance

As reported by Scientific American,9 the 2014 Pediatrics paper10 found that children who did not receive the vitamin K shot at birth were also 14.6 times more likely to be unvaccinated at the age of 15 months. According to the authors:11
This is the first population-based study to characterize parents who are likely to decline vitamin K for their infants and whose children are likely to be unimmunized. These findings enable earlier identification of high-risk parents and provide an opportunity to enact strategies to increase uptake of vitamin K and childhood immunizations.
Senior author Shannon MacDonald told Scientific American:12
Our finding of a link between vitamin K refusal and vaccine refusal was very concerning. We had expected a correlation between the two but had not expected the association to be so high.
The correlation between vitamin K shot refusal and vaccine avoidance is turning out to have severe ramifications for many parents. In short, by saying no to the vitamin K shot, some hospitals are automatically labeling you a negligent parent and a dreaded anti-vaxxer in the making, so to speak.

Babies Taken From Parents Who Refused Vitamin K Shot

A number of stories have emerged detailing how parents have had their newborn babies taken from them by simply because they declined the vitamin K injection. In a September 2019 article,13 The Daily Citizen describes the harrowing ordeal of Angela and Brian Bougher:
The Christian couple believes that ‘God’s creation isn’t automatically deficient or flawed at birth’ and the shot is unnecessary. The Boughers have a right to their beliefs, and if they were fully informed of the risks then they should be able to decline. The state of Illinois didn’t see it that way.
Instead, in the moments after birth, a nurse told the Boughers that their newborn daughter was being taken away and they were being investigated for ‘medical neglect.’ It took 12 hours to get their daughter back.
It’s debatable whether the logic of Boughers’ decision is sound—however, medical professionals should know that the first moments of life are crucial to both mother and child. To remove a child for such a reason is a severe overreach of the state’s responsibility to protect children from neglectful parents.
The family’s pain did not stop there. Later the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) had law enforcement officers make an unannounced visit the Boughers’ home to investigate and determine if any of their other four children were being ‘neglected.’
The Boughers and several other Illinois families who experienced harassment and investigation by the DCFS over refusal of the vitamin K shot have filed a class action lawsuit against local hospitals (Silver Cross Hospital, Advocate Christ Medical Center and the University of Chicago Medical Center), the AAP, the DCFS and several pediatricians. As reported by CBS Sept. 24, 2019:14
They want a compensation and a court-enforced guarantee that the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services won’t be called if parents refuse to give their babies a Vitamin K shot.
In 2010, I interviewed Cees Vermeer, PhD, an associate professor of biochemistry at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands,15 and one of the world’s leading specialist in vitamin K.16 I’ve included it above for your convenience.
According to Vermeer, while vitamin K1 is necessary for newborns, the shot is not. There are far safer and noninvasive ways to normalize your baby’s vitamin K1 level. He points out several areas of risk associated with the vitamin K injection:
  • The amount of vitamin K injected into newborns (0.5 to 1 milligram17) is far greater than needed.
  • The injection may contain benzyl alcohol,18 a preservative that may be toxic for the baby’s delicate immune system.Preservative-free shots may contain a combination of polysorbate 8019 and propylene glycol20 instead,21 but these ingredients also have a questionable safety profile. For polysorbate 80, hypersensitivity and possible death are among the known risks.22
  • An injection creates an additional opportunity for infection in an environment that contains some of the most dangerous germs, at a time when your baby’s immune system is still immature.
Perhaps most importantly, though, inflicting pain immediately after birth causes psycho-emotional damage and trauma to a newborn, which is both inappropriate and unnecessary.
In his 1999 paper, “Babies Don’t Feel Pain: A Century of Denial in Medicine,” David B. Chamberlain, PhD, a psychologist and co-founder of the Association of Pre-and Perinatal Psychology and Health, wrote:23
The earlier an infant is subjected to pain, the greater the potential for harm … We must alert the medical community to the psychological hazards of early pain and call for the removal of all man-made pain surrounding birth.
A 2004 study24 found that very early pain or stress experiences have long-lasting adverse consequences for newborns, including changes in the central nervous system and changes in responsiveness of the neuroendocrine and immune systems at maturity. Similarly, a 2008 study25 concluded:
Healthy newborns routinely experience acute pain during blood sampling for metabolic screening, injection of vitamin K or hepatitis vaccine, or circumcision.
Acute pain caused by skin-breaking procedures can lead to physiologic instability and behavioral distress, and it has downstream effects on subsequent pain processing, development and stress responsivity. Because of these detrimental effects, reduction and prevention of pain are worthy clinical goals that are also expected by most parents.

Oral Vitamin K Is a Safe and Effective Alternative

The good news is there’s a completely noninvasive and pain free way to ensure your baby gets the vitamin K1 it needs: oral vitamin K drops, which are readily available for hospitals to purchase26 if they do not routinely stock it.
Oral vitamin K1 is absorbed less efficiently than vitamin K1 that is injected. However, this can easily be compensated for by adjusting the dose. And, since vitamin K1 itself is nontoxic, there is no danger of a bad reaction.
One reason oral vitamin K is not routinely used is because it requires multiple doses, and it’s feared new parents will forget to comply with the dosing. There are many variations in recommendations for the oral dosing. Among them:
  • Six-month weekly regimen—One 2-mg oral dose at birth, followed by a once-weekly dose of 1 mg for the first six months of life, provided they’re breastfed at least half of the time. This regimen was found to be as effective as the vitamin K shot, Evidence Based Birth reports.27
  • Three-month weekly regimen—2 mg at birth, followed by once weekly dose of 1 mg for the first three months was found to be “an efficient prophylaxis against VKBD.”28
  • Three-month daily or weekly regimen—1 mg dose at birth followed by 25 micrograms per day for 13 weeks, or 2 mg at birth followed by 1 mg per week for three months was found to provide the lowest risk of VKDB.29
  • Three-dose regimen—1 mg by mouth at birth, 1 mg at 1 week of age, and a third 1 mg dose at 4 to 6 months of age.30
  • Three-dose regimen—2 mg four hours after birth, 2 mg on day four, and a third 2-mg dose in the fourth week was found to “adequately” protect infants from VKDB.31 (Omitting the third dose was shown to provide inadequate protection).
  • Single dose—A single oral dose of 1 mg may protect against early VKDB in exclusively breastfed babies but not late VKDB.32
As noted by Vermeer, you can also increase your infant’s vitamin K level naturally if you are breastfeeding by increasing your own vitamin K level. The milk of lactating women has been tested, and most is low in vitamin K because the women themselves are vitamin K deficient.
If you take a vitamin K1 supplement, your milk also becomes richer in vitamin K, as you would expect. However, prudence is required—you need to make sure your vitamin K level is truly optimized, and for most women, the vitamin K absorbed from foods won’t be enough, so supplementation might be needed.

Parents Sue Hospitals, DCFS After Precious Moments Stolen Over Vitamin K Refusal

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Richard Dvorak just filed his longest lawsuit to date. One-hundred plus pages, 
several filled with testimony like this… It’s supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life. … Are they going to take our baby? These scared parents became the center of medical neglect investigations shortly after birth. Instead of family, their hospital room visitors were case workers from Illinois’ Department of Children and Family Services. We’re suing DCFS, as well as some Illinois pediatricians… and several hospitals, including Silver Cross in New Lenox. Dvorak’s case takes issue with the DCFS policy that’s now rescinded. Between 2015 and 2018, DSFS required cases be opened into parents who refused newborn medication called the vitamin K shot.
