She's an anti-vaxxer, too
I'm still recovering after learning that someone I'm close to has bought the hype of the anti-vaccine crowd. Sad

I'm planning a new section of my blog intended for educational purposes, and the vaccine discussion will definitely be part of that....


I just can't believe she got sucked in... I mean, theism doesn't mean you take leave of ALL your senses....right?

*sigh*

Here's an article about what can happen when you do not vaccinate. Already a thread about this is the Pseudoscience section but figure it would be helpful for you to show to your friend.

RE: She's an anti-vaxxer, too
Yeah, I actually referenced that article when I was talking to her the other day....that's how I learned her position. She & I have this weird dynamic in which we're afraid to argue with each other (long, complex history), so when I told her the vaccine-autism link has already been proven false, she's like, "I don't know....it's hard to say...." So I'm not sure if she was playing it down because she's really on the fence, or to avoid arguing with me. I also made sure to tell her the public risk of a parent not vaccinating their child.

Well if you want to be sneaky and manipulative Evil_monster personalise it for her. Tell her exactly what would happen to her little bundle of joy if it were to contract one of the diseases we vaccinate for. Note: Yes I am telling him to make an argument to emotion it may be a fallacy but it works, bitches. Smile

Awesome video. Thumbsup

This whole thing makes me sick to my stomache because it makes me wonder if she'd renounce real medicine for sham alternative crap. That notion scares me because I'll be one of her caregivers when she gets old......
