"Youre a f***ing moron if you dont vaccinate your children"

This quote from a pediatrician and the discussion that followed has been on my mind for days. 

Many people in the discussion agreed with the off color rant of this Dr, especially identifying with the part when she said "Of course youre right. Anecdotal bullshit is much more reliable then the sciency stuff from med school"

Is it so hard to believe that people that don't vaccinate can be intelligent people? Not everyone read a book by Jenny McCarthy and singed a waver the next day. 

I hear the argument all the time that we all put on our tin foil hats and read propaganda off the Internet, we trust that over Drs.

I don't think I'm the only person who doesn't vaccinate that has read several papers written by Drs that do not support it. Dr Wakefield isn't the only Dr to not agree with vaccination by the way.

The internet has allowed us to research things and hear from people we would not otherwise have the means to communicate with. A pediatrician is not a nutritionist, or a neurologist. Why is is that if I was seeing a neurologist and they told me in person how they felt about vaccines (and they were against them) how is it that would be alright, but reading several papers written by a neurologist and coming to that conclusion makes me a conspiracy theorist?

I vaccinated all 5 of my kids. I do not think I am a moron, and I would never think that someone who does not vaccinate are morons either....

I think you are correct.  And any doctor that says something like that, should not be a practicing doctor - for either side.  That demeanor shows a complete lack of empathy or compassion.

Vaccinating isn't for us, but I would never call someone who does a moron. I do what I feel is best and so do they. Who am I to say they're a moron? Lol
