It’s truly a heartbreaking story: a young mother gives birth to a 6 week premature baby. After four and a half weeks, the baby developed a persistent cough. One day the baby turned blue and couldn’t breathe. She was revived and hospitalized, but died in the hospital a short time later fromwhat doctors identified as B. pertussis, commonly known as“whooping cough”.

While it is hard to imagine the grief and pain she must be going through. Looking for someone to blame, Indiana mother Katie Van Tornhout is on a crusade to force EVERY hospital worker to be vaccinated against whooping cough despite the fact that the efficacy of the vaccine is, at best, less than 20% and that vaccinated people can infect others for years.

Ms. Van Tornhout’s belief is not supported by the timeline since the incubation period of pertussis is between 7-10 days with a minimum of 4 days to a maximum of 21 days. The baby became ill at about 34 days, ruling out her mother’s hospital transmission hypothesis.

Mistakenly convinced that her baby caught the disease at the hospital where she was born, Van Tornhout is hoping to pursuade the Indiana Legislature to pass a law mandating that all hospital staff keep up to date with all their vaccinations. The fact that this is an astonishing intrusion on personal liberty and health, to say nothing of its irrationality, does not seem to be important to the supporters of this absurd over-reaction to what could not even have been the original cause of the baby’s illness.

The final version of the bill, which requires all hospital staff in the state of Indiana who have contact with patients to keep up to date with eight different vaccines– Influenza, Chicken Pox, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis–requires hospitals to fire employees who refuse to get vaccinated.

We know thatVan Tornhout is incorrect in guessing that her infant contracted whooping cough at the hospitalI but it is not only insane overreach to require vaccinations of all hospital staff, it is both unscientific and ludicrous to assume such a move might have prevented her child’s death.

For one thing, we know from several studies, including a CDC/State of Florida study on pertussis that vaccines are only effective a hopeful (and scientifically unsound) 45 percent of the time at their very best. Among children of pre school age, the effectiveness was just 6%. And the influenza vaccine in 2014-2015 was found to be effective only about 19 percent of the time using the most hopeful of calculations.

So even with this tremendous burden, this highly intrusive invasion of privacy perpetrated against thousands of citizens in the name of one deceased baby–who can’t possibly have been a victim of their inaction–whooping cough could still occur in large numbers of vaccinated workers, and the flu could conceivably turn up in 81 percent.

We must feel compassion for Van Tornhout. This pregnancy, her 6th, was the first that resulted in a living child and now that baby is dead. One must feel empathy for her loss..

Subjecting thousands of people, regardless of the health and personal costs, to unwanted chemical intrusions into their bodies as the result of the death of one sickly child, born to a woman who clearly has issues with carrying healthy pregnancies to term, and, one assumes, giving birth to healthy babies is nothing short of hysterical over reaction.
