Musings of an Anti Vaxer
I am amazed at how this simplistic “anti-vax summary” is so effective in creating and supporting a pro-vaccine belief system…..and have been stunned at how many people, know so little about the history of vaccination and the scientific research, that has been done on the safety and effects of vaccines, or have even for that matter, read a pharmaceutical insert for a vaccine….Many of which, do not cast a favorable light on these injections. It seems that instead of truly researching vaccines, so many, be it physicians, senator aides, newspaper reporters, or the average person…parrot the same mantra…”vaccines good…..they don’t cause autism…Wakefield bad…retracted study…no science behind claims” It is because the mainstream media is so rife with this type of gross simplification, and because of its simultaneous power of persuasion, that I offer a perspective on vaccines counter to popular media. While I am deeply opposed to vaccination, due to their inherent danger, my intent is not to say, “Don’t vaccinate”, but rather, this is a subject that cannot be given a cursory glance but must be looked at, in-depth and from many angles….and ideally with an unbiased mind….especially before mandating compulsory vaccinations.
Here are some examples of the questions that I learn to ask, about vaccines, and the answers that I learned. But first, let’s take a little test.....
We, as a people, must learn to question, to research, and to look beyond the words of standard information outlets, when much of our mainstream informational sources, including mainstream medical journals, insists on supporting lies, and utter ignorance, of this magnitude.
WHO ARE THE ANTI-VAXERS?
We are women, men, mothers, fathers, grandparents, children, teachers, doctors, scientists, researchers, medical doctors....and so many other diverse individuals that agree on one thing....we question and disagree with mandated and compulsory vaccination.
Some of us may even vaccinate ....but choose when and how these are administered...
Many of us have had one of our dear, dear children vaccinated and now they are permanently injured...some of us were told emphatically, that THIS WAS NOT THE VACCINE, and chose vaccination again...and now have more than one child injured.......
Some of us have had children DIE....from being vaccinated.
Some of us have had loved ones that are adults that were injured from a vaccine...or now have arthritis, or asthma or another debilitating illness....
Some of us were able to learn from these deep, deep tragedies and have not had to go through these horrors with our children....
Some of us do not agree, nor think, that the mainstream allopathic germ-theory model supports health, and we choose other methods of healing. We believe that health begets health and that you can never get a robust and healthy population through disease, formaldehyde, aluminum, and trace amounts of mercury.
As a group, we each have our own, very real experiences that have led us to our decisions.
And in this experience, lies our power.
Our words are not fabrications, nor words written to make a buck ...or uttered to gain political, or pharmaceutical favor....or to jump on the latest journalist bandwagon....our words are shaped by actual experience.
