I was so sad to see this show last night, and the way that parents who do not vaccinate were portrayed. They could not have chosen a mom who did LESS research as the non-vaccinating mom, and the sole purpose of Rosies' involvement was to talk this mom into vaccinating, which of course, she did.
They interviewed a pediatrician at one point who did some fear mongering, talking about her son who had Hib, and throwing out the statistic that 1 in 100 children die from pertussis (which anyone who has done their research knows is NOT true).
I was pretty horrified watching the episode, and just wondering if anyone else saw it and what their thoughts were.
Mom to two beautiful boys, now in school to be a therapist and help other women with PPD.
I saw it. I felt compelled to go to bravotv and comment. For some reason my comment wasn't approved by the moderator. :P I promise I was respectful. I saw other anti-vax comments there and I don't know why they won't allow my comment. I submitted it several times over the last couple of weeks and watched several other new comments get put up. Not only was I disgusted at how they represented non-vax parents but I felt really irriated about how they only represented one viewpoint and made it sound like parents who don't vaccinate just don't understand the gravity of the decision.
