Article Source By Matt Agorist Last month, measles hysteria came to a head as every single mainstream media outlet across the country ran with stories pumping fear over some non-existent epidemic. Headlines like “For God’s Sake! Vaccinate Your Children!” and “Measles is on the rise. But telling anti-vaxxers they’re stupid won’t fix it” have run…
This topic must be debated openly and honestly, not just crammed down everyone’s unwilling throats! Following is a letter to the editor written by me earlier this week in response to the paper’s headline “Vaccination Should be Mandatory”, and in which the writer postulated in a very high and mighty way that people who question, or don’t vaccinate could “seriously harm their children or even kill them”, and who also said that those he calls “anti-vaxers”, among other loaded names, could “actually be playing into the hands of those who may want to harm our children.” Identifying details have been deleted.
This letter is a response to Mr. ——‘s “Afterthoughts” from March 4 entitled “Vaccination Should be Mandatory”.
Mr. ——, with all due respect, you must be asked if you have ever examined any evidence on this topic? You speak as one who only knows who butters his bread. There is plenty of hard factual evidence proving that vaccines are connected with autism, allergies and even sudden death. Many big-name doctors have risked their reputations and lifetime careers to bring this truth out into the open. Dr. Andrew Wakefield of the U.K. and Dr. Robert F. Kennedy, to name only two of the many.
Parents who care very deeply about their children are wise to ask questions and do their own research before making any decision about vaccines; NOT, as you say, putting their children at risk of serious harm or even death.
Putting down any real debate by labelling wisely cautious parents and truthful scientists as paranoid “anti-vaxers” and “conspiracy theorists” is not worthy of a newspaper reporter. Maybe you don’t realize that what you are saying here is what is “actually playing into the hands of those who may want to harm our children”? There must be free and open debate on the topic of vaccination (among others), not simply a cry for more government bullying and control.
For all who may be interested, you can borrow the documentary series called “Vaccines Revealed”, a well-balanced look at both sides of the issue, which is available in the ———- Library. (Watch past the credits.)
Please make informed decisions; the lives of our children are far too precious not to!
I hope they print it.
