Here is the letter I wrote. I"m not going to send it to her but boy did it feel good to write!
Deanna, et al,
I don't know whether to be angry or laugh hysterically.
Ok, so you feel that my unvaccinated children pose a health threat to your younger son because he hasn't received all of his shots yet. Where did you read this, Idiots Are Us magazine?
First off, if my kids are sick I keep them HOME. This has nothing to do with vaccination status. It's just common sense and decency. You do realize that no one can transmit a disease to another person unless they actually HAVE the disease? Or do you think that someone who isn't vaccinated somehow carries germ invisibly in their body and infects the masses?
Secondly, you had better go and get your booster shots ASAP! And make sure your dh does, and your parent's and your parents-in-law, and every other teenager and adult that comes into contact with your child. Why? Because their vaccines have all worn off by now! AND they never received the prevnar, or Hib or hepb. So they are a DANGER to your son! YOU are a danger to your son! Go get those shots NOW! HURRY! Why are you still sitting here? RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Look. You are a very lucky person. You never held your two month old infant for hours on end while he screamed ceaselessly, inconsolably, obviously suffering from damage that YOU yourself inflicted when you signed the consent form for the vaccination that had been injected into his body just hours earlier. You never had to live with the worry that he could have permanent brain damage. You never had to live with the guilt that it was your own ignorance that could have handicapped your child for life. You didn't watch him struggle to breathe weeks later when part two of the VERY SERIOUS VACCINE REACTION hit. You weren't in the emergency room with your tiny baby as he was xrayed and given breathing treatments and wheezing so loudly you could hear him across the room. Your precious baby did not get pneumonia and almost die because you failed to educate yourself about the dangers of vaccines.
It could have been you. You were just lucky.
It happened to me. I never questioned, never researched, and my laziness and ignorance almost killed my child.
For the past eight and a half years since then, I have been studying this issue on almost a daily basis. I have learned to separate the facts from the fallacies, the truth from the scare tactics, the ways to keep your children healthy and strong without resorting to injecting them with poisons. I have learned what exactly is in vaccines and the damage these various ingredients can do to the human body. I have learned how the immune system functions and how vaccines alter that function.
I don't care if people want to vaccinate their kids. All I care about is being disinvited to family functions just because someone is ignorant. READ. LEARN. THINK. And if YOU are afraid that my children pose a danger to your children, then KEEP THEM HOME instead of expecting me to stay home. Because, in actuality, it is your children that pose a danger to mine. Your children that have received live virus vaccines that they shed from their body and can infect others.
But you know, now that I think about it, YOU pose a danger to my children. Ignorance is contagious, and I don't want them to catch it.
