ridiculous I have to lie in a free country!!!! ~*EDIT*~

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Its ridiculous that in a FREE COUNTRY I have to LIE. I wish my state had philosophical vaccine exemptions, but they don't. So i'm forced to claim religious. Whatever. Its illegal for them to question and deny me.
Anyways. I felt stupid at the ped today. He respects my choice, but out of curiosity asked why. After my last experience of being honest, I decided to say "its against our religion"... Ha
Then he asks me what religion. I must have looked like a deer in the headlights. I blurted out Baptist. He said he didn't realized Baptist believed that way, so I had to think quick and I said it was just our interpretation of things. Luckily he left it at that.
I hate lying. I'm NOT good at it. Lol


And yes, i'm posting anon because I don't need my inbox flooded with stupidity.




Thanks for the laughs ladies!! I just LOVE the conclusions everyone jumps to. No where did I say I don't vax because of autism or Jenny McCarthy. ROFL.
You call me uneducated and tell me I should do research, but you have no idea what led me to the decision to not vaccinate my children. Do you enjoy name calling? Does it make you feel good about yourself?


About my OP, it has been brought to my attention that I am not in fact lying to get my exemption. Vaccinations go against my beliefs.
I did, however, choose to lie to the pediatrician. Yep, you got me there. God, i'm horrible. Either way, i'm not vaccinating and he wouldn't have been able to change my mind. AFTER I stated my lie, is when he said he respected my choice. Hallelujah!!
The last pediatrician I went to, I WAS honest with and I got a lecture and talked down to like an uninformed child. I was attempting to avoid that situation, and instead but myself in another awkward position. Lol. OOPS.


The decision not to vax my children was not made lightly. I spent Alot of time soul searching and informing myself. This is the best decision FOR MY FAMILY.
I'm not spewing "antivaccine propaganda" nor trying to convince anyone to live the way I do. I was sharing my funny story.

So, to those of you who wish to continue bashing me, carry on. This ol girl feels 100% confident in her choice, and your just making yourselves look foolish!! =)

Lol. Whoooioooiiish

Society vax's and the end result is beneficial for society. Those that choose not to vax are ultimately relying (whether they can face it or not) on the compliance of others to keep their children relatively safe from vaccine preventable disease.

When one rudely and sarcastically tries to 'convince ' others she is right and they should understand her way as being best thereby putting her own unvaced children who are more important than society at even greater risk... I question the courage of their convictions.


Quoting LectioDivina:

America doesn't Go By the WHO's recommendations, we go by the CDC's recommendations. They Are the same a lot, but not all the time, and not on every vax.

I don't know what there is to be insecure about in this conversation...That emotion just didn't pop up for me...lol I might be zealous...

Quoting Momniscient:

You seem so... Zealous. And insecure.

I'm sure the WHO is a bunch of money hungry assholes except when it comes to their breast feeding recommendations. Lol.




Quoting LectioDivina:

So sad that other countries are outright banning vaxes that this money driven country is still promoting...

We need to see A LOT of deaths happen before we stop injecting our kids with something that's had a bad track record at preventing the disease anyway...

Crazy almost....

Why not? People like to get assistance when they don't really need it.


 


I'm talking about lying in this country. People who don't need pa lie about their income and so forth go get assistance. Then there are people who really need it and make say $5 too much to qualify. Get it now?

 

No, It's relevant. Her post is about lying. You obviously DON'T get it.

WOW.......I read the label and it doesn't stop me from vaxing my kids.  Plus, you did a crappy job of making a jab back at her.  LOL

Isn't it sad how many stupid parents just inject their child with whatever is offered without even reading the label?

Sad...

That vaccine preventable disease was declining and would just 'go away' naturally (apparently ignoring epidemiological science all together) that vaccine preventable disease didn't 'really' do harm and that washing your hands and eating organic produce will keep one safe from tetanus Or pertussis or stop polio in its tracks.
Jonas Salk should have consulted you before completing his work.

Or take pseudo science as gospel?
