How horrible for her. :( I can't imagine. Though I have often thought about the 'what ifs.' I am fairly confident our decision to not vax would remain. But I understand her passion.
Quoting kitty8199:Horrible, but I still think the risks of the vaccines are worse.
Measles is extremely rarely fatal. The vaccine poses more risk. It risks the disease on top of the risks of the vaccine.

Quoting wolfybaby:can someone post the article? Im mobile (my phone doesnt support most websites either so clicky wont help). Measles is an easy disease to screw up. Inadequate diet (most americans kids have vitamin a deficiency im sure), giving fever-reducers like crazy, chilling the kid, not dimming lights, etc etc etc.. I mean, measles isnt terrifying and deadly. But it needs proper care and, yknow, common sense. Like we used to have when measles was still a thing. These days, people dont know *anything* about the "old" diseases. If you are going to have a child, whether or not you plan on vaccinating, you need to be educated on *all* topics that come with raising them, and diseases are one of them!! Measles has *never* gone away, it is an endemic disease in all parts of our country. Its always going to be a possibility that itll become virulent at any time.
i woulda put back on his fb wall articles showing how most of the vaxxed population caught measles, and also the fraud behind two Merck employees pushing a vaccine they knew had problems with efficacy. Vaccination is not a one size fits all preventive care, that is best for everyone.
