And, if you work in health or for a university, you can usually access it all for free through your organisation's library.
I guess that doesn't fit the picture they're trying to create though.

Welcome to MDC, thatcoolmom
There is a battle of two wolves inside us. One is good and the other is evil. The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

Well, I guess what I am really tired of hearing is that if you don't vax you basically don't know what you are doing because you are so misinformed from all the conspiracy theories that are floating around on the internet. When in fact I get a lot of my information directly from the CDC, RKI etc. websites. You name it.
Another one that gets me upset when stating that we don't vax is: Oh, but Wakefield has been debunked! So now it is safe to vax or what?
“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”
Wakefield and McCarthy are scapegoats for the vaxx propaganda industry and you can pretty much assume that anyone who drags their names into the debate, thinking that that is the only issue, has no idea what they are talking about.
We had been a no-vaxx family for many years before they came onto the scene and the mmr-autism connection has never been a primary concern for our family. I can't think of anyone I know for whom it was.
I actually charted the mmr rates before and after Evan McCarthy's diagnoses and there was only a very small drop in rates after, which may or may not be attributable to his mother's activism.
