I'm not surprised, either, and I totally get what you're saying.

This being the case, the blogger has no business using such absolutist rhetoric about how pregnant women just HAVE to get vaccinated. Where there are still unknowns, pregnant women should be informed of these unknowns and have the freedom to choose accordingly. My pregnant friend's employer, a major hospital, didn't give her this choice. irked.gif
