BTW, I think PingPong's Mom is on to something. If we'd taken our families to dinner and spent $50, Chili's would have only given $5-10 to the NAA. Why don't we all pull out our checkbooks and give the NAA even more?
I've been ruminating over why this pisses me off so much. The bullying angers me, of course, but it goes deeper than that. A key program of NAA is to prevent autistic children from wandering. Most wandering-related deaths are caused by drowning, and many end up in traffic accidents, so the NAA provides outreach to caretakers of this children, including safety kits.

Ever hear of a guy named Socrates? Responding with questions, rhetorical or otherwise, is a common and universally accepted method of debate.
There is nothing I can say that won't earn me a nasty-gram from the mods.

I'm also on my mobile but can hunt down links if you'd like. Anyway, a lot has changed since 1996. Thanks to the info age, I suspect that a lot more people know what VAERS is and...
Another issue arising from these numbers is that you should be comparing the risk of the vaccine to the risk of *first getting the measles* AND getting an adverse event from the illness.

They'd need to get the measles first, and the data on that likelihood needs to be factored in.
NM. If you can't say something nice, blah, blah, blah.
The one plus to her post is that she's exposing the hypocrisy of the vaccine coercion movement, whose members will target < 2% of the the exempting U.S. population for bullying but not utter a word about other demographics with low vaccination coverage. Her blog post might do some good. Maybe if an insider cries foul to the bullying, they'll listen to her. Wishful thinking, perhaps.
They should, given what they supposedly stand for. Yea. I'm naive. I know.
Why aren't Planned Parenthood and Amnesty International all over this???
