They certainly made measles seem like a harmless childhood illness when the Brady Bunch kids all came down with them. The jist of the show was how the parents were exhausted taking care of them.

Measles is just an illness. It goes away. Autism is forever. So really easy choice here.

Sweetie, do your research and determine what's best for you. Please know that there are plenty of unvaccinated kids with autism. Forgoing the vaccine doesn't mean your kids will not have developmental disabilities.

Who is threatening me with measles or autism?

I have an ASD (Aspergers) so I guess I'll take the autism.  I really don't like being sick so measles seems worse.
