Can I be the fluke worm?

This century’s most brilliant actress, Amanda Peet, refers to parents who don’t vaccinate their children as “parasites”.

Let me detach myself from my host so I can post you the insightful link…ah, okay, here it is…

Hmm.  Sometimes, I do have a rather large, blood-thirsty-looking yap.

March

Anyone going to the Green Our Vaccines march in DC on the fourth?  I wish I could go, but Ro’s Dad is going out of town. 

Anyway, it’s starting to catch on…I am less of a quack mother every day now!  Yay!

We are bleeding heart liberals here, so we didn’t include Republicans. Ron Paul does have a good stance on vaccinations, though, so I did post about that awhile back!

Anyway, what do you all think?

Ron Paul on Vaccines

Here’s the thing.  I am not against vaccines.  I think that lives are saved by immunizing against certain diseases.  

But one size doesn’t always fit all.  You get judged when you don’t vaccinate your child, and everyone who doesn’t have a child with autism has an opinion on the vaccine/autism debate – usually it’s not a supportive opinion to withholding vax.

I explained it like this to my step-dad yesterday.  He said, “But why do some kids never get a vaccine, and then they wind up with autism too?”

Think of cancer.  Some never smoke, but they get lung cancer.  Some smoke for 75 years and die with a butt in their mouth at the age of 95. 

But we all know that the chemicals in butts cause cancer. 

Cancer comes when a body is neglected, exposed to toxins, or sometimes, it’s just genetic susceptibility.

Whatever the reasons, there are certain things we have outlined as healthy, safe, cancer fighting, etc.  And we try to live that way – well, most of us anyway ; )

My point is, I don’t think vaccines are a sole cause of autism, but with 1 in 150 children diagnosed with ASD (and that is just the children who are diagnosed – some sources believe the real # to be more like 1 in 60) their safety and efficacy for “all children” needs urgent, reliable independent study – unrelated to the CDC.  To admit to having a part in unleashing an epidemic would cost billions.

It’s all about the Benjamins, people.

Okay, off my soapbox for today.  More Ronan James and The Loudon silliness later!
