An op-ed from our local newspaper:
Just to make sure the search engine bots catch that text, it's: "I vaccinate my kids because I'm not crazy".
The majority of the arguments I've heard against vaccinations come from questionable sources and tend to be ill-informed and/or seeping in logical fallacies. For example, "I don't vaccinate my children because they put chemicals in those vaccines."
I'm not sure what else a vaccine should consist of? Perhaps some kind of fantastic concoction? Elf tears? Unicorn urine? Are those chemicals?
I really enjoy it when an anti-vaccine proponent throws in a dash of dystopian conspiracy.
"I don't vaccinate because the government is putting microchips in the chemicals that they use."
This is something I have actually heard someone say. They said it with a straight face. It was great.
Read the whole thing (with the title changed in the online version ... to protect the innocent or something).
