tidbits from SBM about the pro-disease movement

April 6, 2009

“It’s not my fault if vaccine-preventable diseases come back; it’s the pharmaceutical companies’ fault for not making ’safer’ vaccines.” Never mind that what makes vaccines “unsafe” to Jenny is based on a discredited idea, namely that they cause autism.

“CARREY: We are not saying don’t vaccinate.”

…a miseducated consumer is the antivaccine movement’s best dupe…

If vaccines are such a huge profit source, then one wonders why the number of pharmaceutical companies manufacturing vaccines has fallen so precipitously over the last two decades. It couldn’t be the low profit margins and fear of litigation, could it, a large part of that fear having been fueled by the antivaccine movent? Perish the thought! And if vaccination rates fall, big pharma is a convenient scapegoat. Perish forbid that anyone would blame the falling vaccination rates in parts of the country on the efforts of Jenny and her merry band of antivaccinationists…

…the “rate” of autism is 0.3 per 1,000 for Hispanics in Wisconsin, but 10.6 for Whites in New Jersey. …

    A huge reason – possibly the only reason – why pharm companies are closing is because the government is forcing them to give free vax’s – a company can’t profit if they have to give away their wares. We can thank Ms. Clinton for that.

    My kids are delayed vax’d, because there is ZERO medical reason I need to inundate their little immature systems with so much at once. I will give them all their vax’s, and I don’t delay because of the fear of autism (a lot of the fear is not because the vaxes CAUSE it, but because the flooding of their systems “may” trigger a genetic code for the autism – don’t know, don’t care, not my concern). I delay because I live in America and get that choice.
