Ban chelation on autistics kids and adults - one death is too many sign now

Please sign this petition against chelation use on autistic children and adults. There has been grave concern over the use of this highly controversial treatment that is supposed to remove 'heavy metals' from the body.
Numerous cases have been seen of harm done to children from quacks using this, now a death has occured of a 5 year old boy.
News article extract - "A 5-year-old autistic boy died Tuesday in a Butler County doctor's office while undergoing an increasingly popular though controversial medical treatment touted by some as a cure for the lifelong neurological and developmental disorder.
Abubakar Tariq Nadama died while receiving chelation therapy, an intravenous injection of a synthetic amino acid that latches onto heavy metals and is then passed in the urine."

No more children should have to die, one is too many.

Thank you,
Amy Nelson of Aspies for Freedom

    Parents who use this unproven and dangerous treatrment should realize that they are risking their child's life. They are, in effect, saying they would rather have a dead child than an autistic child. Ban this procedure now!

    My child is autistic and the unproven therapies scare me. We need to be sure the 'detoxifier' is safe and effective.

    Parents, please don't give therapy to your children that you do not know is safe. Instead of being selfish and wanting the child to be normal, be thankful you have a child and love them as they are.

    The "cure" is the destruction! We do not need nor want a so- called cure. Individuals on the spectrum are not "lost" in any way. Parents accept your kids the way they are and doctors stop using us as guinea pigs!

    Chelation for autism makes no sense. Autistic children aren't toxic. Thimerosal doesn't cause autism. Abubakar was killed by the propaganda machine started by SAFEMINDS and others like them.
