Alisa Neathery, a young dusky beauty, fragile in her composure, walked to the front of the starkly lit meeting room, holding two things: A photograph of her smiling baby boy Bently, and a moon crescent shaped silver object. I wondered what it was.

She began to speak, and tell her shocking story.

When her son Bently was six months old, she took him in for a round of vaccinations to his local clinic, in Fort Worth, Texas, where she lived then. She had delayed giving him his two-month shots, so his immune system could develop a bit more, and she felt confident that he would fare better now that he was six months old. The pediatrician that day was telling her how important vaccinations were, and how many children died without them in his native country in Africa. He described how mothers would line up to get the shots for their babies, and that many had to have 10 children, just to have a few that survived infancy.

Totally unbeknownst to his mother, Bently received a staggering 13 vaccinations that day, including two triple doses of DTap, Hepatitis B, a polio shot, three oral rotavirus doses, and a pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine. It was all compressed into three shots and one oral dose. It took the nurses half an hour to prepare all the shots Bently received. The pediatrician told Alisa that her boy perfectly healthy—that he showed above average strength in his stomach and legs.

Five days later, he was dead.

Bently died while sleeping on Alisa’s chest in the middle of the day, five days after receiving those 13 innoculations.

Holding up the photograph, Alisa says, trying to steady her voice, “This is Bently, or… was Bently.”

Then she holds up the silver object:

“And this is Bently now,” she says quietly.

Bently died while sleeping on Alisa’s chest in the middle of the day, five days after receiving those 13 innoculations.

When she brought him home that day he was twitching a lot, extremely cranky, no longer making eye contact, and had a red knot on his leg, that was still there when she viewed his body prior to cremation.

“I trusted them,” she said. “I thought this was going to save my son.”

At the back of the room, her now five-year-old daughter Skyler, who was two when Bently died, shifted in her father’s lap and looked over at the table of fluffy cakes.

“He adored us all. He adored his sister and his dad, my husband. He had just learned to say “Mama.” My daughter was there. She looked at him when he said it, and repeated, “Mama?”

In 2010, a study found that the US had the highest infant mortality rate (6.1 out of 1,000 live births) of 28 wealthy industrialized nations. The US also has the highest number of vaccines given to infants.

“There are so many children who have died and been injured by vaccines that sadly, Alisa’s story is very common,” says Nancy Babcock, who runs a Facebook support group called Angel Babies for the parents of children who have died following vaccinations.

“Alisa is a brave soul for sharing her story, and there are so many just like her. It’s heartwrenching.”

“Angel Babies was started by my friend Suzanne who lost her precious boy Tommy. The group immediately got so much attention that she was about to shut it down because she couldn’t stand the grief and I asked her not to and offered to help.”

The group posts photos of the babies alive, then, often, photos of them after they have died, sometimes in small coffins. The parents, usually the mothers, write detailed accounts of what exactly happened, and the timeline is always the same. By some mechanism, the infant brain holds off the toxic assault for a few days, then quite suddenly, the child dies.

Another chilling fact is that SIDS, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, coincides with the infant vaccination schedule—the deaths from SIDS generally occur between 2 and 6 months.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System is a US Government reporting system for vaccine injuries and deaths, funded by taxes on vaccines. It collects some (far from all) reports of vaccine injuries and deaths. Since its inception, it has awarded $2.5 billion to families or individuals, for injuries and/or deaths proven to be caused by vaccinations.

At the same time, rather inexplicably, US health agencies continue to insist that vaccines are in no way linked to SIDS.

Most SIDS deaths occur between 2 and 4 months, which coincides exactly with the peaks of infant vaccination schedules. US health agencies state categorically that SIDS is not caused by vaccines, despite this correlation. But numerous studies run counter to this assertion.

It’s now been three years since Alisa lost her son, and she has finally found the strength to begin to put into words the truth as she knows it, as she lived it. “Vaccines killed my son,” she says, without anger, but also without ambivalence. “I was with him all the time. Every minute. Nobody knew him better than I did. There is no question in my mind.”

Alisa is the kind of parent entertainer Jimmy Kimmel saw fit to mock in a shockingly depraved comedy bit that made the rounds on the Internet, to the disgust of millions. She’s “paranoid,” enough to think vaccines killed her son. As pro-vaxx bullies would have it, Alisa’s message is a threat to the survival of America’s children. But she does it for the same reason all the grieving mothers do it: “Ever since he passed away this has been something that I really wanted to do. If I can help save any life, any child, adult, anybody from going through unnecessary heartache and pain, that is the only consolation I have now.”

Bently’s official cause of death was “SUDS,” or “Sudden, Unexpected, Unexplained Death Syndrome..

The medical examiner told her that he was almost never in his career unable to find a cause of death in a corpse, even one who has decayed outdoors for years—but he could not find a cause of death for Bently.

“‘There’s no reason why he should not be alive,’” were his exact words,” Alisa says.

Adding insult to tragedy, CPS removed Alisa’s older daughter Skyler from her home and placed her with her grandmother for a period of four months while they “investigated.”
