Another "My Journey Leaving the Anti-Vaccination Movement"

This has been getting a lot of attention recently, and with over 300 comments and 20k shares, I thought I'd share it with you guys.

The tone is really respectful and polite, which is refreshing!

She's a new blogger and I look forward to reading more from her

"These diseases are lurking in our neighborhoods, and I have to speak out. I love what Jeffrey Kluger wrote in TIME magazine, “Vaccines save lives; fear endangers them.” I want my friends in the anti-vaccination community to not be afraid, and as someone who knows them best, I want to continue sharing my story, my personal experiences, and the science to help eliminate vaccination fear and protect their children."

“What do you think science is? There's nothing magical about science. It is simply a systematic way for carefully and thoroughly observing nature and using consistent logic to evaluate results. Which part of that exactly do you disagree with? Do you disagree with being thorough? Using careful observation? Being systematic? Or using consistent logic?” ~ Steven Novella

Thanks for posting. Stories like that (without any snark) restore my faith in humanity.

She just came out with another post entitled "Why your pediatric health provider actually wants you to vaccinate your child" that I think is really good as well.

Well I certainly don't agree with every pro vaccine doctor/blogger on every issue
