Question for Pro-Lifers
110
Thu, 02-26-2009 - 2:05pm

I'd like to know how pro-lifers feel about vaccinations. Which of you vaccinate? Which of you don't? Why or why not?

I'm asking here instead of the Vaccine Debate Board because of the number of people here I'm certain are pro-life and I'm looking for some answers and correlations.

Thanks

And do you realize alot of what is learned at the veterinary schools is then turned around and used on humans? I have a high school classmate who is a Professor at WSU and he told me this (and it has been conformed by a UofDub medical Professor too) so not all of it is bad my dear.

Off-topic, but my uncle had shingles a couple of years ago. I don't remember exact timelines but he had the disease for quite a while and the pain for even longer. If I'm not mistaken, he still has a little bit of pain from it. Definitely not something to be taken lightly.

When you get chicken pox, the virus doesn't entirely leave your body afterwards but instead becomes latent in your nerve cells.

LOL, I'm sorry that's my fault - there was originally going to be more to my previous post but the baby cried so I posted it half-cocked (so to speak)!


I didn't think you meant that vaccines were the only trigger :o) but the baby's crying again so I'll have to come back to this!


ETA: Ok, baby's settled :o) Tell me about what happened to your kids. What leads you to believe that there might be a link between their autism and their vaxs?

That's interesting. AFAIK the chickenpox vaccine isn't used at all in this country. I wonder how it would work in a similar situation here. ETA: I was wrong. Kate says it IS used here for similar situations (contact with immune-compromised people)

I understand what you mean.


As an aside, one environmental trigger of spina bifida seems to be month of birth or time of conception/gestation.
