Being a "vaccine defender" I really do try to not be sarcastic and rude when people question. I too question all the vaccines before I give them, my ultimate decision usually rests on the fact that I didn't go to medical school and I've never treated a child, my doctor has so I trust what they say. While I think its great that we question, we should always know, I still think we should trust the medical providers that we bring our children too - If we don't trust them why are we bringing them our children? If I could do a better job myself why take them to the doc at all?
Lismom I'm surprised that you sited this article. Your reasons for not vaccinating were well researched and well articulated. I found this article sarcastic and didn't really teach anything other than the authors ability to use sarcasm to make a point about "vaccine defenders" use of sarcasm to defend vaccines. Don't be offended but I found this article kind of annoying.
