‎"The distinction of anti- vs pro-vaccine is artificial and actually quite ludicrous," says Louise Kuo Habakus, co-editor of The Vaccine Epidemic. "What other huge category of medication requires adoption of such a label? Are you anti-steroid? Pro-antibiotic? Aren’t there situations when these medications do and do not make sense? Do we care about contraindications, family history, prior experience, performance status, other meds taken, etc.? Must we declare that we are FOR or AGAINST vaccines before a discussion can take place? Do we only talk with people with the same label?"

I read this, too.  She's absolutely correct. I can't think of anything else where people who have observed adverse reactions to say, peanuts or gluten or perfume are labeled "anti-peanut," "anti-gluten," or "anti-perfume."


There's one heck of a political/financial battle taking place, and the parents of vaccine-injured kids are being blamed for it--and labeled.

Oh, she is right on the money with that comment.  I completely concur with Louise's observation - very astute.
