Vaccine Debate

I do not usually post about things like this, but lately, I just cannot take it!  I can barely go on Facebook with all these people posting about how vaccinations do not cause autism so everyone should vaccinate their children; "Vaccines do not cause autism!" they say.  I do not care to debate this myself but I am so tired of people who do not have a child with autism posting about vaccines and autism, not once but a dozen times!  Really?  I do not think anyone should tell anyone else what they should or should not do with their child.  If someone does not want a child who is not vaccinated around their children, take it up with the parents but do not push your beliefs on someone else.

A short rant but, whew, I feel a bit better!

All the best! *HUGS*

What frustrates me is that people think by yelling or insulting others, it will change their minds about vaccinations. No one is going to vaccinate their child because they've been told to do so on Facebook.

Hello Judy,

I know, it is totally out of control. I have no idea what goes through someone's mind when they post something like that on social media. It gets everyone worked up and for what? You are correct, people cannot tell someone what to do with their own child, and shouldn't. No matter how loudly they try.

Thank you for your comments!

All the best!
