This article is beyond infuriating. It's not a mom's business how many children in her school are vaccinated for what, last time I checked, that's private information. Being hounded with such information at school is just wrong. The doctor's office is the place to discuss pros and cons of vaccines, not schools. Influences children that way behind parents' back on top of it (as soon as they can read - imagine this campaign in an elementary school) is wrong and borders on indoctrination. This group scares me and if they showed up at my school I'd lawyer up quickly.

Imbedded in that story is the link:

This is what they are up to:

 

"Recognizing that most parents immunize their children, Vax Northwest is partnering with parents to share information on immunization with their peers in school, child care, and parent groups."

 

Blech - and way to perpetuate a type of mommy wars.

Coming soon to a Playgroup near you . . . With the amount of mamas MultiLevelMarketing companies can recruit on the promise of a few dollars, direct to consumer Pharm advertising should be no trouble to get spokeswomen for @ all. Expect these type of 'advocates' to show up online too. The press is relentless on this issue. The actress Jenny McCarthy's name appears in a major media publication nearly 1x day now!

I love that the study was so open about calling the two groups 'Conformers' & 'Non-Conformers'. And about using crazy numbers to represent a fundamentally subjective *survey*.

At least this woman admitted it's propaganda winky.gif

 

 I would like to know how her husband got access to the medical records of all school children?? How could he possible know who is vaccinated and who isn't to create a spreadsheet? If the school shared that information with him, they are breaking the law and I hope some of the upset parents sue the crap out of them.

That was my first reaction too. And I hope a lot of people come away with that creeeeepy idea. But I think what maybe they meant was that he built the spreadsheet for the school to use.

I don't love Bonnie whatever the author. She wrote some really played out articles during the Breastfeeding Time & Formula in Hospitals controversies.

But Gentle Propaganda is an Oxymoron. Propaganda is by nature, violent, forceful. In the world of ideas, propaganda is a bully.
