I am not trusting Jenny McCarthy's opinion.  I am agreeing with it.  Jenny McCarthy was hardly instrumental in my vaccine beliefs. If I am just some Jenny-lover, then why do I disagree with circumcision, as do many on the INV board?  The whole argument is simply illogical. IIRC, there was a study once showing that around 5% of pediatricians intended to delay or skip some vaccines, and around 8% of specialist intended to delay or skip vaccines.  We also know that if hcp...
Woohoo! Good luck and keep us informed as you can.
Well, I cannot resist getting to someone before they procreate (and I did do you a favour and answered your survey - so read my list ) The only newborns who might warrant Hep b vaccination at birth are those whose mothers are Hep. b positive.Please do not give acetaminophen at the same time as a vaccine.Anti-depressants in pregnancy are associated with 2-3 times the risk of autismMMR and V separeately are safer than MMRV.Breastfeeding can be difficult in the first 6 weeks,...
Your professors are not your audience, though. I think it might make sense, going forward, to have a basic understanding of the issue and of your audience when writing surveys. I hope this comes across as constructive criticism - as it is intended to be postive.  Writing a solid survey is hard.  
I did answer.  It seemed benign enough and it was anonymous.  Meh, I am bit of a softie :)   I did find the questions on the survey could have been worded better.  For example - you asked if the kids were vaccinated.  I have one who is half vaccinated, one is completely unvaccinated and one who has had one vaccine.  There was no space for multiple answers.   I ended up explaining things in a comment box.  You will find that many non-vaxxers did vaccinate one but not the...
 nail  - head, Serenbat. A certain portion of pro-vaxxers have tried hard to make her the figurehead, so they can then attack her.  Perhaps because they see her as a blond bimbo, they think she is an easy target.  The sexism is really galling, but I digress….. If you google "Jenny McCarthy vaccines" you get page after page after page of Pro-vax and skeptic sites.  Not vaccine-critic sites.   It would be like if I made Amanda Peet or Penn and Teller the head of the pro-vax...
Please say when the diagnostic criteria changed and give dates and citations, thanks. ETA:  it looks like the DSM IV came out in 1994.  The DSM V started very recently, and if anything, should lower the amount of people diagnosed with ASD, not increase it. http://www.psychiatry.org/practice/dsm/dsm-history-of-the-manual
Choosing to smoke as an adult or get botox is not the same thing as giving a baby, who is not old enough to consent, a pharmaceutical for frequently nebulous benefit. Alas, though, I do not overly care if some think some of her personal behavior is hypocritical.  There are so many hypocrites in this debate…..It does not justify vile attacks on her or turning her into a scapegoat.  It also does not make those who use her as a scapegoat look credible or bright.   For...
I do not see it that way.  I do not think Jenny undermines the vaccine-critic POV at all.  I do not have any real issues with Jenny - I do not like her circ. stance or the vaping…but otherwise?  Nope.  Claiming one person undermines an entire, complex issue is silly.  I would expect a better argument than that - if you want to go down that path, perhaps we can discuss Thorsen?   I am not sure what your point is here.  Is it just to poke at Jenny McCarthy?  What for?...
I reread your post, Turquesa.     Reason magazine called her "An enemy of freedom" ?!?!?  lol   I would bet money she is pro parental vaccine choice. Those who wish to tighten vaccine exemptions are the enemies of freedom in this debate.
