I love they print ads like that in well known newspapers. Maybe more people will get the point.

We are all refugees from that vaccine schedule...

Did anyone else notice the little writing on the bottom?

We want to thank Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy for their generous support of Generation Rescue and their never-ending commitment to solving the growing challenges of autism

Nice! Love that it is in a mainstream paper

I think it's a nice ad, but I only have one complaint. They listed "antifreeze" as an ingredient. If I'm not mistaken, I believe that is not actually true?

However, I did love the side-by-side syringe comparison.

Some Vaccines do contain Ethylene glycol It is the main ingredient in Anti freeze.

It's in DTap, HIB and HepB

Actually that's not the case. I have not seen ethanol glycol listed on one single ingredients list ever. What I have seen are:

Phenoxyethanol is in DTaP, Hep A/B, Td, IPV but is not the same chemical makeup as ethanol glycol and is an organic chemical compound.

EDTA (ethylene-diamine-tetra-acetic acid) which is an amino acid...also used as a preservative in the Rabies/Varicella vaccines.

EDTA is also used in chelation therapy, dentistry, as an anticoagulant, and many other things...

wikepedia has some interesting info on it also...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EDTA

The antifreeze thing is what I consider to be an "urban myth of vaccines" and started out of a misunderstanding of the ethylene chemical compounds (specifically EDTA)....not everything ethylene is antifreeze.

I honestly cannot understand how anyone can look at the side by side comparison and not have some twinge of terror and wonder if maybe, just maybe, the vax program may be doing more harm than good.

Me either!!

The sheer increase in shots is staggering.

Hey, if it makes ya feel any better, I initially did the EXACT same thing (probably from the same sources )...and only upon researching further did I realize the error.

I love the ad!! What would make it even better is to have one more needle with the proposed schedule for 2020. That makes you want to puke. I don’t have the link anymore but it’s A LOT of shots.

I'd love to see that if it could be found !

I'm gonna try to hunt it down...post a link if you find it first!

You beat me to the punch. You are correct.
Vaccines DO NOT contain antifreeze. I think it was highly irresponsible of Operation Rescue to publish that false information. Maybe I follow in Jenny McCarthy's steps and also donate to them. I will donate an Organic Chemistry text book.
