Did anyone catch the show last night about the boy that died from having measles. The mom in the show had a son that had autism so she didnt vacc her other two boys. The boy with the measles ended up dying, that day. How unrealistic, and very biased. I am glad the topic is being brought into light, but please....

I saw the first five minutes of it just now and that was all I could take. It seemed like an ad for the AAP and CDC with the characters quoting how they say there is no link between vaccines and autism. No, that's just a conspiracy theory because those organizations are infallible and the only thing vaccines do is save lives!

I don't know how you managed to make it through the entire episode.

The lead character is an OB and her take on childbirth makes the show pretty much unwatchable for me... I'm SO glad I didn't catch this episode or I think my head would have exploded.
