let flat earthers believe the earth is flat, but anti-vaxxers are literally putting their children's health at danger.

I mean what sort of a future are we headed for when people do not trust government, science, medical scientists, climate scientist, and educators?

As someone with Autism, the fact that parents are so horrified at the thought of it that they'll risk life threatening illness to avoid it is frankly VERY offensive

If autism is worse than polio, measles, *meningitis*, then you have your priorities severely screwed up.

I didn't vaccinate my kids and the ones that lived turned out fine

Anti-vaxxers are one of the most dangerously stupid groups of people on our planet. Flat Earthers are just as stupid but at least believing the Earth is flat doesn't result in the preventable deaths of children.

Refusal to vaccinate children should be considered child abuse and the parents should be punished accordingly.

Anti vaxxers: you are terrible parents. Go ahead! Risk your child's death or lifelong handicap and suffering but remember this: by choosing not to help prevent your child from getting a totally preventable disease, you are forfeiting your responsibility as a parent.

Your kids don't deserve to die, but your selfish ass deserves to lose them. Your kids deserve better.

Water, aka H2O, contains hydrogen. Hydrogen is highly flammable. Therefore, according to the logic of anti-vaxxers, Water can turn on fire easily.

Personal opinion over science. Thats the problem in the modern world

Vaccines are absolutely needed. Not just for the person vaccinated, but for everyone. Especially those who are not able to be vaccinated.

remember they're not anit-vaccines, they are pro-disease.

Only developed nations who have forgotten the horrors of these diseases do crazy things such as this. You would hardly find this madness in developing countries who still have some issues with these diseases. This is another case of "I dont see it so it does not exist"...Then the disease picks up and people go "Oh, this was real, thought all those old timey things were just made up."

I thought children weren't allowed into school without being vaccinated.

Sadly, there is no vaccine for the greatest killer on earth: Human stupidity. -.-

A story of Autism and Disease:

My brother was born before the Rubella vaccination was available. He got Meningitis, he stopped breathing, my parents rushed him to the hospital... he barely survived. Over the next 3 years, he had 4 normally fatal diseases, and his immune system is still weak.

My brother also has Autism. It’s been a struggle to grow up with him, and he’s spend his adult life with my parents, state-sponsored aides, and a mix of charity work and part-time employment at a local museum.

I love my brother. He’s vital and lively and kind, and the thought of what could’ve happened if my mom didn’t know CPR? If he had died before I was born? It’s horrible.

Autism isn’t the end of a life or a family, but these diseases CAN and WILL destroy a child’s health forever.

these parents would rather have a child that is extremely ill than have an autistic child.

they would rather have a dead child than an autistic one.

and that is pretty ableist

I got pertussis (whooping cough) two years ago and I was terrified to leave my home for a month because I didn't want to come into contact with anyone who could come into contact with babies.
