I'm ready to learn - teach me! (vaccinating) PIOG
I have been silently questioning vaccinating my children for about a year now, but honestly, I wasn't really in a frame of mind to truly decide not to vaccinate. I was still in the ‘trust my government' mindset and believed ‘they wouldn't do anything that would knowingly harm my child'
How uneducated I was
The more I learn about the way the world works today, and the more I learn about what these ‘big' companies and groups are doing, the more my eyes are opened and the more I doubt what other people (specifically those on the money-making end of my decisions) tell me is and is not good for me and my children.
Basically, I am ready to learn.
This newest update with the anthrax vaccine being tested on babies and children has me absolutely appalled and makes me want to cut off all vaccinations in my children all together. And honestly? I don't trust the big pharma at all, so why in the world am I still vaccinating my children? Out of some naive hope that they wouldn't do what other people say they do? I don't know. But those days are gone. I'm ready to learn what's REALLY going on with my kids' vaccinations. And I'm ready to freeze all needles that would enter any of my children's bodies until I can make a decision I feel comfortable with. There's nothing I can do about the past vaccines except hope no adverse effects show up in my kids. But I can prevent future negative effects. I know that now.
But I'm going to need your help.
First of all...how am I supposed to protect against diseases like mumps, measles, whooping cough, etc without vaccines? These diseases are scary to me and I don't want any of my kids to have to deal with them. What are your thoughts about this?
My husband is still pro-vaccine and up to this point, every time I bring up not vaxing anymore, he shoots my comments out of the water. But I believe he could be persuaded otherwise if presented with some legitimate information. Do you have any legitimate sources I can look at to make a decision of my own? As well as my husband?
For those that selectively vax, what makes you decide which vaccines to accept and which to deny?
I'm ready to learn...teach me!
