I chose to not vaccinate my second because I saw Jenny McCarthy on Oprah and it scared me to pieces................. I ended up giving him some (started being more scared of him catching something) but he still has not had the MHMR............ Not sure if and when we'll do that one.
Anyway, what are your thoughts?

My thoughts are that it's a parent's responsibility to research and make the decision that they are comfortable with. There are other reasons to not vaccinate other than the possibility of autism. I am sure you are well aware of that though, it sounds like you have done your own research.
If this is true, I think that there will be a lot of people with strong feelings about what they did, but I didn't make my decision to vaccinate based on someone else's opinion.

When my nephew was vaccinated with the polio vaccination, he did get a mild case of polio (diagnosed by the Dr.) and could not walk for a short period of time. That was enough to scare my sister into stopping ALL vaccinations. When she started to really research the ingredients they use in vaccinations she was dead set against it. (this qualifies as "other reasons").
I, on the other hand, have done my research as well and have decided to vaccinate my children as scheduled. They are both healthy and have not had reactions to their vaccinations (that I can tell). My Sis's kids are some of the sickliest kids I know (not sure if it is due to the lack of vaccine, or if they are just more susceptible).
