Welcome to our April/May issue! As anyone who’s been following the vaccine/autism debate knows, the discussion is growing even more contentious as Pharma-backed efforts to mandate vaccines are increasingly evident in state legislatures from coast to coast. The passage of SB277 in California was a major coup for drug companies as it removed all childhood vaccine exemptions except medical—and those are extremely difficult to obtain. Pharma lobbyists have now set their sights on Texas where the state legislature is considering 13 bills designed to make it more and more difficult for parents to maintain control over which vaccines their children receive and when. Writer Leslie Phillips does an incredible job in explaining how the government and drug companies are managing to exert increasing control over crucial medical choices for children. We also have an update on the Robert F. Kennedy, Jr./Robert De Niro press conference in February and the media backlash that ensured, plus insights on housing for adults on the autism spectrum, practical ways to build self-esteem and much more!

Since 1999, the Autism File has been one of the most widely known and respected media sources of information and support for families affected by autism.
